Bristol Palin’s not expecting her new reality show to change hearts and minds, folks — all that trash-talking actually motivates her to “want to do more and want to speak up even louder,” she said Monday.
“The people that don't like me, I'm not trying to change their opinion on it,” the 21-year-old said on “Good Morning America,” speaking ahead of next week’s “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp” premiere. “But it's going to be a good show.”
The eldest daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was thrust awkwardly – and unwed-pregnantly – into the spotlight in 2008 when her mom was Sen. John McCain’s vice presidential running mate, said she’s excited for audiences to finally see the “real” Bristol, someone she says is “a grounded, normal mom.”
Indeed, the young woman who had few words during “Dancing With the Stars” appears to have been replaced by someone more confident, at least during the “Good Morning America” interview (watch it below).
A “Life's a Tripp” clip shows the aftermath of a notorious clash at a Hollywood bar between Palin and a man who called her mother a whore and the devil. After going face-to-face inside, Palin is seen in the parking lot in tears.
