Instead of sinking low with harsh comments thrown at her, Bristol Palin is excited that she goes through to the final round of "Dancing with the Stars". Palin escaped the butcher's knife earlier this week although she scored the lowest among four semi-finalists. The daughter of Sarah Palin received the necessary back up to qualify her through the audience vote. A lot of people have since criticized the show for being a competition of popularity instead of dancing skill, and even accused the voting of being rigged. But Palin thought she deserved the place, saying "I know I've worked hard to get where I am. I definitely feel like I'm the most improved dancer on this show - so I'm comfortable with that."

No. This is not right at all. Bristol Palin beats Brandy? Nope. Not buying it. Yet that is exactly what Dancing With the Stars tried to sell us last night by revealing that the teen mom who doesn't think anyone else should have premarital sex somehow ranked higher than the R&B singer who scored a perfect 30 the night before. Not since Wretchin' Gretchen beat Mondo Fabuloso on Project Runway has the natural order been so out of whack. Are the conspiracy theorists right? Are member of the Tea Party really messing with the results by registering fake emails and filing multiple votes on ABC's website? If not, then it's very possible that the apocalypse is upon us, people. Well, that may be extreme, but this definitely stands as a sign of DWTS' questionable credibility. Granted, Miss Palin's mother broke ratings records with her new TLC reality show this past weekend, so it's possible that anything bearing the Palin brand is gonna pull in the big numbers. But let's be honest, this is a dancing competition. Talent is supposed to matter more than rubbernecker curiosity or even political affiliation. But Bristol's performance Monday night, while vastly improved since week 1, still resembled that of a re-animated corpse learning to walk again...and most definitely did not deserve the take the popular vote. The only upside to this upset is that Bristol is now headed to the finals — alongside Jennifer Grey and Kyle Massey — which means she could manage to achieve something her mommy hasn't in a while: A win. What did you think of last night's results? Is this messed up or does Bristol Palin belong in the finals? Source Here
There was anger, outrage and sadness in the Dancing With the Stars ballroom Tuesday night. Brandy, who did such a magnificent job this season, was told she would be going home, knocked down by the seemingly unstoppable force that is Bristol Palin. Whether it's the wide reach of her mother, Sarah Palin, the influence of the Tea Party, or Bristol's appeal as the only "ordinary" (and therefore relatable) person in the competition, it doesn't seem to matter that she comes in dead last on the leader board. Viewers' votes, week after week, have allowed her to leap-frog over Audrina Patridge, Rick Fox, Kurt Warner and now, Brandy, and put her into next week's finals. For her part, Palin is proud and unapologetic. "I'm the most improved dancer, without a doubt," she says, "and I deserve to be here. Nobody's worked harder than we have." To Read More Click Here.
A Wisconsin man has been arrested after he fired a gun at his TV when Bristol Palin performed on Dancing with the Stars and then held police at bay in a 15-hour standoff. According to a criminal complaint filed in Dane County Circuit Court, Janice Cowan told police that her husband, Steven Cowan, 67, became enraged when Palin started dancing on Monday's show. She said he screamed, "the f---ing politics," because he was upset that Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, was still on the show since he believes she's not a good dancer. The complaint said that Cowan, who had been under stress because of a financial situation and was being treated for a mental health problem, later retrieved his shotgun and fired it at the television. After demanding for the rest of his pistols, Cowan reloaded the shotgun and pointed it at his wife, the complaint said. Janice Cowan left the house and drove away to call 911, according to the complaint. To Read More Click Here.
