Bristol Palin’s new docu-reality show, “Life’s a Tripp,” debuts on Tuesday (June 19) at 10 p.m. ET and in a newly-released set of photos from Lifetime, viewers get some idea of the look and feel of the show tracking erstwhile vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s oldest daughter.
Bristol worked her way into the spotlight during the 2008 campaign when mom was added to the John McCain ticket and the then 17-year-old teen found herself saddled with an unplanned pregnancy courtesy of now-ex boyfriend Levi Johnston.
“Life’s a Tripp” chronicles Bristol’s move from Alaska to Los Angeles and the struggles of being a single mom. It also follows Bristol’s outreach as an abstinence evangelizer — she says her own experience should serve as a cautionary tale to other young girls.
“It was hard for me to go to LA and try to fit in there,” Bristol, 21, said on Monday’s (June 11) “Live! with Kelly.” “I’m not that Hollywood type of person.”
But based on the new pictures, Bristol found plenty of non-Hollywood activities to keep her busy while in the lower 48 — including cake decorating, riding a mechanical bull and hurling gay epithets at men in bars.
