Bristol Palin on The Secret Life of the American Teenager Appearance: I'm No Actress!

at . Comments

In a new interview, Bristol Palin admits: "I'm not an actress."

Having seen the clip of her guest-starring on next week's new episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, we'd have to agree. At least Bristol isn't fooling herself.

So, what is she doing on this ABC Family drama?

"I was excited to work with the cast and just to contribute to this show's message," she told E! News. "I feel obligated [to speak out] because I've lived through this experience... the more I talk about it and the more I can be hands on about it, the better I feel about myself."

Sounds like Palin at least admits this gig is nothing but self-serving and... we're gonna stop ourselves before we get too political. Instead, we'll just ask:

Does Bristol's appearance make you more or less likely to tune in to The Secret Life of the American Teenager on Monday?

I read the snarky comments about Bristol and I agree wholeheartedly. But what struck me most about her was how native Alaskan she looks--must look a lot like her dad--
She's really beautiful (and I hate saying that 'cause I hate the Palins.)


God atleast she knows she's not an actress... She really sucks at acting.. Anyway the message of this show is really importart and it has to be listened by everyone, it's not good to be pregnant at the age of 15, less when you don't know anything about sex and it's ur first sex experience


I am just amazed that someone is called after the city I was born in England. Wow.


Poor girl must have read all the terrible reviews. I can't imagine any one paying her $30,000 for an abstinence speech. This grifting family circus really needs to tend to their own business and make an honest living like most of us with REAL family values - not phony ones. There is enough manufactured trashy reality tv shows without the lying drama queen mother cooking up something new every week to get attention. I'll be boycotting any TV show they are on except for maybe Jerry Springer and Maury.


The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Self-serving, just like her mother. No surprise here at all.
