Bristol Palin: Mom will show up on "Dancing"-- at some time
After a whole lot of blah, blah, blah-ing the three co-hosts of Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends" finally got around Thursday morning to asking America's Most Famous Single Mom and new "Dancing with the Stars" celebrity Bristol Palin the question on everyone's mind:
"Will your mother be in attendance, along with your father, there in the studio to watch?"
(Actually, hardly anyone was waiting to find out if Bristol's dad is going to be there.)
"Yes, yes," responded the daughter of Fox News Channel contributor Sarah Palin -- who is also the star of an upcoming TLC reality series, about her Alaska. Sarah Palin's, that is, not Bristol's.
"I'm hoping she'll be able to squeeze some time in, in between her speeches and be able to make a performance," Bristol said of her mother.
Note she did not commit to Mom being there when the show debuts next week.
"I have read you feel she is your No. 1 cheerleader and you need her, dance-floor-side," "F&F" co-host Steve Doocy noted.
"Yeah. I'll need both of my parents there -- and the rest of my family as well," Bristol answered diplomatically.
"Very nice," co-host Gretchen Carlson purred approvingly.
Gretchen wanted to go over the old news about Bristol saying she intends to dress modestly on the show. You know -- like mother-of-eight Kate Gosselin did, only without holding a news conference about it ,which was such a rare instance of squandered opportunity on the part of America's Most Put Upon Mom.
"How are you going to avoid that?" Gretchen marveled, in re state-of-skimpitude.
"You know, I'm a mom, I have a one-year-old at home and I don't want to be in those two-piece little bikini tops or anything like that," Bristol explained -- again.
"So I'll be dressing modestly -- but that's just who I am, and I'm staying true to who I am," she reiterated.
