Sarah Palin’s daughter was on Jimmy Kimmel’s show after being eliminated on Dancing with the Stars. She didn’t accept his apology about his jokes about her mom over the years. But that’s okay, because the apology wasn’t for real.
Bristol Palin is once again without a job after being the latest dancer eliminated off of Dancing with the Stars: All Stars. But that doesn’t mean she’s not staying busy. The famous daughter made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel‘s show and didn’t seem too impressed by the host.
Kimmel decided to start the interview with an apology, a move that quickly blew up in his face.
“I appreciate your coming, because I made probably one or two jokes about your mother over the years,” he said, according to the Washington Post.
But Bristol Palin didn’t appreciate his olive branch. She replied with “Yes, I’m here for my apology.”
“You’re here for the apology!” Kimmel replied, and then gave her what she wanted. “I’m sorry.”
But Palin didn’t buy it. She responded, “No, you’re not.”
Kimmel didn’t argue with that answer. Instead, he said, “I’m not sorry, you’re right. But I will allow you to make 48,000 jokes about my mother just to make us even.”
Instead of taking the bait, she answered with the truth: “I don’t know your mom.”
“Well if you knew her you would make fun of her,” Kimmel said.
The whole thing could have been very tense, but both seemed to be joking. Kimmel then asked Palin if she might one day follow in her mom’s footsteps and turn her DWTS success into a possible vice presidential run.
“I’m only 21,” Palin said. “I haven’t thought that far.”
Kimmel responded by bringing up Tuesday’s debate and the current presidential race: “People are getting younger and younger. Look at this Paul Ryan — he is like what, 28 years old?”
Palin appeared on the show with her partner, Mark Ballas, who was also kicked off. She hasn’t said what’s in her future. But she has always been able to use her name to advantage, so she will likely be able to do it again.
