Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin is slamming rumors she had a boob job to amplify her breasts. Palin attributed the ‘Boob-Gate’ rumors she had gotten breast implants to “bored, idle bloggers and reporters with nothing else to talk about.”
The rumors about Palin undergoing breast surgery sparked up after she was photographed wearing a tight, scoop-neck t-shirt that showed off her very perky assets.
In an interview with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin said she absolutely had “not had implants” in her breasts.
Palin said the rumors about her boobs and attention to her physical appearance makes her “have to waste time figuring out what am I going to wear so that nobody will look at an area that I don’t need them to look at.”
As for those “bored, idle bloggers,” Palin suggests “they need to perhaps grab a shovel, go down to the Gulf, volunteer to help, clean up and save a whale or something.”
Well, we think that’s actually pretty good advice. Why doesn’t Sarah Palin strap on a nice, baggy set of overalls and head on down to the coast herself?
Former vice-presidential candidate and Alaskan governor Sarah Palin has been confirmed as the host of a new reality series to air on TLC. Discovery Communications announced Thursday that Sarah Palin’s Alaska would be broadcast as an eight-part series on TLC.Â
“Our family enjoys Discovery’s networks,” Sarah Palin said in a press statement. “I look forward to working with Mark [Burnett] to bring the wonder and majesty of Alaska to all Americans.” Mark Burnett, who produced the reality shows Survivor and The Apprentice, will helm the new reality show as executive producer.
No air date has yet been set for the series. That’s okay though, because we really don’t give a damn. The only reason we’d tune in is if Sarah Palin plans on showing us exactly where she can see Russia from her house.
Whenever it airs, however, we solemly beg Tina Fey to bring her Sarah Palin impersonation to Saturday Night Live once again. There is just SO much about this whole gig that deserves some delicious mocking by the 30 Rock queen.
Former vice-presidential candidate and Alaskan governor Sarah Palin is reportedly close to signing a deal to host her own new reality show. Palin has been shopping around the nature-themed reality series to various networks and Variety reports she may have finally landed a network willing to pay over $1 million per episode for the show.
The travelogue reality show, tentatively called Sarah Palin’s Alaska, has supposedly been purchased by Discovery Communications, according to a report in Variety. Palin allegedly met with a slew of networks while shopping around the series, including ABC, CBS and NBC. When none of them took the bait, Palin reportedly turned to the cable networks for a buyer. Bidding finally came down to A&E versus Discovery, with A&E eventually bowing out.
Sarah Palin’s Alaska will reportedly focus on the people, traditions, and natural wondersÂ of the former governor turned Fox News analyst’s home state. No official announcement about a purchase of the series has come out so far from Discovery.
Here’s the thing. Sarah Palin pretty much bailed on the whole state of Alaska when she famously decided to quit her job as governor. Regardless of your political affiliations, does she really deserve to be given a job representing the ‘people and traditions’ of the state she abandoned mid-term?
Let’s not forget this is also the woman who is known for enjoying shooting and eating the wildlife of Alaska, not for wanting to preserve them and celebrate their natural glory. Come on, this is the lady who grinned during a Thanksgiving interview bit while turkeys were being slaughtered bloodily over her shoulder – and she’s going to host a “nature” series? Somebody stop the madness, please!
Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin and daughter Bristol Palin are furious over a Family Guy skit allegedly mocking Palin’s son Trig, who has Down syndrome.
In the Family Guy episode, the character of Chris dates a woman with Down syndrome who says her “dad’s an accountant, and my mom’s the former governor of Alaska.” Before his date, the Stewie character mocks Chris with a song called “Down Syndrome Girl”. There were also several tasteless jokes about the “short bus” and how the Down syndrome girl is “always shouting” – typical Family Guy fare really. Sarah and Bristol Palin, however, weren’t laughing.
“People are asking me to comment on yesterdayâ€™s Fox show that felt like another kick in the gut,” Sarah Palin wrote in a Facebook blog post. Bristol was one who asked what I thought of the show that mocked her baby brother, Trig (and/or others with special needs), in an episode yesterday. Instead of answering, I asked her what she thought. Here is her conscientious reply, which is a much more restrained and gracious statement than I want to make about an issue that begs the question, â€œwhen is enough, enough?”:
“People with special needs face challenges that many of us will never confront, and yet they are some of the kindest and most loving people youâ€™ll ever meet,” Bristol Palin said. “Their lives are difficult enough as it is, so why would anyone want to make their lives more difficult by mocking them? As a culture, shouldnâ€™t we be more compassionate to innocent people â€“ especially those who are less fortunate? Shouldnâ€™t we be willing to say that some things just are not funny?”
“If the writers of a particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my brother and my family yesterday, they failed,” Bristol Palin concluded in her statement. “All they proved is that theyâ€™re heartless jerks.”
Here’s yet another reason why Levi Johnston should not have taken his clothes off for those nude Playgirl photos. (As if the ick factor alone wasn’t enough.) Former girlfriend and baby momma Bristol Palin wants her cut from all that money Levi Johnston has been making from his ‘modeling’ and media-whoring.
Bristol Palin, daughter of former vice-presidential hopeful Sarah Palin, is suing Levi Johnston for child support. Palin claims Johnston hasn’t given her nearly enough money to help support their son Tripp. She claims her former beau earned over $105,000 in 2009 through “various media interviews and modeling related activities,” including that nude Playgirl spread in December.
Palin wants Johnston to pay her $1,750 a month in child support from his entertainment earnings. She claims Johnston has only forked over $4,400 to support his son so far. Johnston’s manager, Tank Jones, says Bristol Palin is lying and claims his client has paid his baby momma more than $10,000 since Tripp was born.
We think Bristol Palin may be setting her sights just a bit too high in trying to wrangle nearly $2,000 a month out of Levi Johnston. After all, how long can he really keep peddling his 15 minutes of fame to keep paying the bills? Being famous for not practicing safe sex and knocking up a teenager isn’t really a long-term career.
Honestly, it was hardly a surprise to learn former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin is now a Fox News commentator. After all, where else do you go after failing to win aÂ majorÂ election and resigning your post as governor of Alaska before your term is even up? Book deals and public appearances can only earn you so much fame and fortune.
Seriously though, Sarah Palin has repeatedly bashed the media for their coverage of her over the years, especially during the election cycle. Yet, now she’s decided she wants to be the media she’s hated on all along. One of our favorite bloggers, Chris W. over at Felsputzer.com speculated this could be a great opportunity for Sarah Palin to “talk her way right out of American politics” for good.
On the other side of the fence, Sarah Palin supporters can’t wait to see what new pearls of wisdom the former governor will drop on the ears of Fox News listeners. They think she’s just the kind of new, fresh blood the conservative voice of Fox needs.
We just wonder which Fox News broadcast by Palin will end up in another video parody featuring William Shatner first.
Love her or hate her, Sarah Palin knows where her bread is buttered. Now she can not only continue to hate the media at will, she can do it from the inside. As they say, hell hath no fury…
Bristol Palin, daughter of former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, wants sole custody of her son with ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston. Bristol Palin filed for sole custody of Tripp in November, but the case was originally registered using pseudonyms to prevent an “onslaught of media” in the custody battle. The custody filing came to light after a Superior Court judge ruled against keeping the court proceedings closed.
Levi Johnston, Bristol Palin’s ex-boyfriend, wanted the court custody proceedings to be public. “I feel more comfortable in a public courtroom which will help everyone stay civil and be on their best behavior,” Johnston said in a press statement.
In addition to sole custody, Bristol Palin also wants child support and a ban on Johnston’s mother visiting with their son without supervision. Sherry Johnston was arrested earlier this year on drug charges.
Levi Johnston, who recently appeared in a racy nude photo shoot for Playgirl, wants shared custody of son Tripp and denies he has avoided his parental responsibilities.
Either way it shakes out, we just can’t help feel bad for the kid. But if poor Tripp does end up getting to stay with Mom and Grandma Palin, at least he’ll get to see Russia from his house.
