Bristol Palin: My Mom Didn't "Force" Me to Do DWTS
Bristol Palin is slamming her Dancing With the Stars costar Margaret Cho for insinuating her mom, Sarah, forced Bristol to compete on the ABC series.
Twenty-year-old Bristol took Cho to task Saturday -- via an open letter on her Facebook page -- days after the comic blogged that Sarah put her up to the show.
"Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly…for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she 'owed' it to her to do DWTS so that 'America would fall in love with her again' and make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012..." Cho blogged Nov. 29.
Bristol's carefully-worded response?
"I will give my friend credit for creativity, and extra points for getting so many 'facts' wrong in so few sentences," she blogged. "Let me be blunt: my mom did not "force" me to go on DWTS. She did not ask me either. The show approached me."
DWTS' third-place finisher credits her parents for keeping her spirits high during her time on the dance floor.
"Anyone who watched the show could tell I performed better, and I felt better about myself, when they were in the audience," Bristol wrote. "I wanted to make them both proud, but politics had nothing to do with it. Loving my parents had everything to do with it."
In a final zinger to Cho, Bristol urged the star to develop a fuller understanding of conservative politics. If that happens, says the teen activist, Cho "would embrace us faster than k.d. lang at an Indigo Girls concert."
