Bristol Palin Reality Show Debuts June 19

Bristol Palin's reality show debut is imminent! On June 19, the single mother and her "little terror" of a son are scheduled to invade reality television, courtesy of Lifetime. Does Sarah Palin approve?

Bristol PalinThe debut of Bristol Palin's reality show is nearly upon us, so what can potential fans expect come June 19 when Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp! premieres? A little bit of tough chick, served up with a side of calling for mama!

For 10 half-hour episodes, the public is invited to watch Bristol Palin and Tripp, her 3-year-old son with ex-fiancé Levi Johnston, live life in the public eye.

Speaking of having cameras in her life, Bristol Palin told Good Morning America's Robin Roberts, "I don’t really think you get used to all of it but Tripp was used to it the whole time. He didn’t care if the cameras were there or not. He’s still going to be rowdy, he’s still going to be a little terror, but it was fun. It was a lot of fun."

As for how her mother, Sarah Palin, feels about her daughter and grandson being on reality television, the 21-year-old shared, "You know, she supports me and she knows that I have good judgment so she is definitely in support of it."

Bristol Palin had the chance to show off just how protective of her mother she is when a man in a bar spoke ill of the former vice-presidential candidate while cameras rolled. Of the heated exchange the young mother explained Monday:

“I think if somebody is going to talk poorly about my mom, I am going to pick and choose my battles and a battle like that, I chose to confront him and see what the real problem was, and I’m excited for viewers to see the real me in that, because I’m sitting there all tough and shaking and I’m acting tough and instantly when it’s over, it’s like, ‘OK, there’s the real Bristol,’ because I am calling my boyfriend, I’m calling my mom. ‘Ah, get me out of here,’ people are going to see the real Bristol in this show.”

"I think I have tough skin and I know that God is on my side and my faith is everything to me. It’s just the root of my life and my family’s life and I think it will do well,” Bristol Palin added. “And when people are talking poorly about me, I think it just gives me more motivation to want to do more and want to speak up even louder and they’re just not doing themselves well by doing that.”

I think because Bristol was popular on DWTS, reality TV producers thought that people would watch her in a reality show. I can't stand the promo - her saying she's not Hollywood. Why is it all she does is Hollywood? That's her life, TV shows. The mother quit her job as a politician to make millions selling books and doing a reality show, so the daughter did same thing. She had cosmetic surgery already, had a chin implant at 19. My god. She doesn't even go to college, has no plans to do anything constructive with her life. She's famous for having a kid out of wedlock and her mother runing for VP and losing and screwing the Republican party all up cause her mother was found out to be so dumb. This family found out that you can know nothing, do nothing, be nothing and get rich quickly by doing reality shows. What kind of an example is this to "conservatives?" Have a kid out of wedlock, get rich quick by doing nothing hard, nothing constructive. It's such garbage. I hope the show bombs. The mother's show got cancelled so she put the daughter on a reality show so she can go on it. They are desperate for more big, fast money. This stuff is sick all the way around.

Bristol Hollywood wanted sole custody of Tripp and her lawyer argued that Levi would exploit the boy and sell photographs of him. Bristol wanted to preserve Tripp Johnston's "privacy" (for herself). Now it seems that Bristol is the one exploiting her little moneymaker. So many real single moms deserve recognition, especially those who talk the talk and walk the walk when it comes to their baby's daddy and visitation. Against court orders hypocritical Bristol has done nothing but take every opportunity to slam the alleged baby daddy not to mention insinuating in her book that he got her drunk on wine coolers and raped her in a tent (with another couple there) even though she admitted in her book that she was on birth control. I won't be watching this craptastic show cobbled together with unused footage from her other failed reality show attempts and I'm letting Lifetime know what a poor decision they've made. http://www.mylifetime/shows/bristol-palin-lifes-a-tripp

I couldn't even finish watching the whole clip it was so awful! It is going to be a flop for sure. No one cares about her or her life, she does nothing! I'm not offended about her called her son a "little terror", most toddlers are at times! But I think this is all so ridiculous.

"I know that God is on my side?" What lunacy.

God, this stuff makes me so angry. Not only can I not stand the weird, forced folksy accents, I absolutely loathe this media-whoring, fame-chasing, child-exploiting attitude that all the Palins seem to have. Why on earth does anybody care about Bristol Palin? Her mother no longer is involved in politics, unless you count being a Fox talking head. Bristol herself isn't that important. What exactly has she done to make me care? Oh yeah, nothing. Yet, she's gonna get the big bucks from this stupid, inane reality TV drivel.

I know Palin-intrigue was huge back in 2008, but I don't really see why being a former Vice Presidential candidate's daughter makes you interesting enough for a reality show. But with that being said, I will still check the show out!

No. That 3-minute clip was all I could take.
