Bristol Palin says if she had known how much of her life would be revealed on her new reality show “Life’s a Tripp,” she might have reconsidered her decision to do it, but added that it’s been a fun experience that she is "excited" for people to see.
In an interview with Fox News “Fox & Friends,” Palin, who is the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, said she never sought her own show. But she said she is excited for people to see “what it’s truly like” for her on the new Lifetime show.
“Life’s a Tripp” follows Palin on her move to California with her sister to work for a charity. She said the mansion she stayed in was the home of a family friend.
Among the topics explored will be her life as a single mother, and the custody battle with her ex-fiancé, Levi Johnston.
“He does not use any of his visitation rights right now and you see that unfold in the show and you see the journey that I do struggle with the custody case and with trying to get him involved in Tripp’s life and viewers are really going to get a glimpse of that in this show,” she said.
Palin also said she is proud of her mom’s current role in the public arena and did not comment on whether or not she wants her to go back into politics.
“I think she’s doing great with what she’s doing right now,” she said. “I think she’s awesome at endorsing candidates and giving her speeches. I think she’s doing very well.”
