Bristol Palin to Appear on The Secret Life of the American Teenager

by at . Comments

While her baby's daddy and former fiance is being considered for a role on Desperate Housewives, Bristol Palin is coming to ABC Family.

The real-life teenager mother will be forced into the spotlight again by her attention-starved mother make a cameo as herself on a summer episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

Bristol will appear as one of Amy’s friends at a music program for young parents.

"I am thrilled to be on this show and to be a part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy," Bristol said.

The casting announcement comes a week after Sarah Palin made national headlines by manufacturing outrage at Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane and his show's depiction of a high school student with Down Syndrome.

We'll let readers decide whether or not placing her daughter on a TV show is hypocritical, considering the former VP candidate and MacFarlane have the same goal: use the Palin name to garner ratings.

    I love it. She's a teen mom herself, AS AM I, and she's saying that this show is educational? I love the show, but it's like a soap opera: It's nothing like real life.

    I don't think it would be the same, but thats just my opion, but if shes on it we will see how it works, its the fact shes not a actor. I dont want poor acting in the whole thing, well I can not wait till it comes back on. I have seen every episode and I have bought every season so far :)
