Todd Palin is Bristol’s daddy. It’s hard to anticipate what effect it might have on Bristol if she knew that her father was a pimp.
She might become promiscuous, thinking that Dad promotes and makes money off sex. She might think that if it’s ok for dad, it’s ok for Bristol. She might resent her father’s use and abuse of women, and try to send her father that message in a very public way. She might plan to get pregnant out of wedlock, which would be undeniable proof that she was having sex as a teenager.
She might name her son, the one conceived out of wedlock, for her father’s prostitute, “Tripp.” She might try to follow his lead and make money off men’s interest having sex with her. Alternatively, she might do all of the above.
1. She was pregnant out of wedlock. Her pregnancy became the subject of national attention as a result of her appearance at the RNC in 2008 when she was reportedly pregnant.
2. When her son was born she chose the name “Tripp,” spelled with two P’s. Shailey Tripp, Todd’s prostitute, spelled her name with two P’s.
Both Bristol and Levi say it was Bristol’s idea to name the baby Tripp. Bristol doesn’t explain the name in her book except to say she decided she wanted a T name, to go with Todd, Track , and Trig
3.In case there was any doubt that Tripp’s name was somehow connected to Todd, remember that one of Tripp’s middle names is “Mitchell”.
Todd’s middle name is Mitchell.
4.Bristol has created the appearance of being promiscuous as a result of the number of boyfriends she has had.
5.Bristol has made hundreds of thousands of dollars off her promiscuity. When Tripp was born she sold pictures of him to People magazine for $300,000.00. When she became a spokesperson for the Candee’s Foundation she earned $262,500.00 from this “charitable foundation.” They selected her because she was a very well-known young woman who was famous because of having sex as a teenager.
Bristol has never admitted how much money she made for Dancing With the Stars. Clearly she was invited on the show because of her celebrity as the child of a mother who espoused conservative attitudes about sex, birth control, and abortion. Other people who have appeared on DWS have disclosed the amounts they were paid:
$125,000 payment for joining the show and being on the first two episodes.
If the contestant makes it past the second week they earn:
Weeks 3 & 4: $10,000 per week ($20K total)
Weeks 5 & 6: $20,000 per week ($40K total)
Weeks 7 & 8: $30,000 per week ($60K total)
Weeks 9 & 10: $50,000 per week ($100K total)
The most amazing thing is that she seems to be proud of her claims of chastity, and her sexual exploits. Here are specific examples:
She was pregnant at the RNC.
After giving birth she gave an interview and said that “abstinence was not realistic.”
She described herself as a “Born Again Virgin.”
She got paid by the Candee’s foundation for being a spokesperson for abstinence.
She made this commercial:
The word “situation” is used in the commercial instead of sex. Bristol says that she avoids situations.
Then Bristol gets a new boyfriend and they move in together. Bristol described that relationship with Gino as a “trial marriage.”
At some point the trial marriage resulted in a trial divorce.
Then Bristol was seen out of control at the family brawl, wearing clothes that would not generally be worn by chaste women. Bristol talked about her “thong dress.”
Bristol and Dakota announced their engagement on March 14, 2015.
Within three days, at least by March 17, 2015, Bristol’s house was for sale.
By March 24, 2015 it appears Bristol and Tripp had moved to Kentucky.
At least by April 12, Dakota Meyer announced to the world on Twitter that he and Bristol were living together. He posted a picture of he and Bristol shooting a gun. His words were:
Myself and bsmp2 celebating our first week living together in KY by shooting our warsport. What a romantic way to celebrate your time together as a couple.
In summary, within less than a month, Bristol got engaged, moved thousands of miles with her son, to live with a man. That man was so happy to be living together that he posted a picture of the happy couple for everyone in the country to see…even those people who thought Bristol was still a born-again-virgin.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not objecting to people living together. Only 3% of people in America remain abstinent until marriage. What I object to is making money promoting abstinence while not being abstinent, and being so bold about the fact that you are not abstinent. Given Bristol’s previous employment as an ambassador of abstinence, Dakota and Bristol should at least pretend that they are not living together. When Tripp wakes up in the morning does he know which man will be in bed with his mother? What does he call them…a trial daddy?
