Here We Go Again: Bristol Palin To Be On ‘Dancing With The Stars All-Stars’

One door closes and another opens. This seems to be going on for reality star Bristol Palin, who announced in her blog on Friday that she’s going to be on “Dancing with the Stars All-Stars.” So if you couldn’t stand to see her perform on the program in 2010, you’re in for more frustration this fall.
As excited as the 22-year-old is to do another stint on the popular series, getting there was not so easy. In her blog post, Palin writes of how tough it was for her to watch the latest installment of her own show, which just aired an episode of her fighting with boyfriend Gino:
“Many of you saw Episode 12 of Life’s a Tripp when Gino and I had our big blowout. Well, it was very painful for everyone involved. After that fight, Tripp and Willow both dozed off, so it gave me – finally – some quiet time to think. I prayed about my life. I asked for some sort of direction as to what to do, which direction to go…I prayed and asked for guidance. After Lifetime wrapped up filming for the day, they took the microphones off Willow and me. It wasn’t ten minutes later that my cell phone rang. It was the casting director of Dancing with the Stars. I was ecstatic.”
Think what you will about the Palins, but it’s rather nice to see Bristol get back on her feet after tripping (no pun intended!) on a few recent bumps in the road. We all deserve a break sometimes…and by break, I mean third stint on reality TV.
