Bristol Palin Broadcasts to Millions to Prove She’s ‘Anti-Hollywood’

Bristol Palin’s new reality series, Life’s a Tripp, which premieres tonight on Lifetime, is being marketed as a show about an “anti-Hollywood,” down-to-earth mother, who is relentlessly hounded by paparazzi and scrutinized by the media while just trying to live a normal life with her son… because signing up to be followed around by a camera crew for a show to be broadcast to millions totally qualifies as “normal,” right?

PRNewser Poll: Opinion Split About Whether Sheen Internship is a Good Opportunity

Today is the final day for interested prospects to send their first-round applications for the summer social media internship with Charlie Sheen. According to a follow-up press release from Internships.com, more than 74,000 applications had been received by Wednesday.

‘B Palin’ and The Situation Star in a Safe Sex PSA

Bristol Palin and Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino do a little acting (very little) in the new PSA from the Candie’s Foundation, which focuses on raising awareness about the consequences of teen pregnancy.

Besides the moving dialogue (“Oh snap! B Palin,” The Situation exclaims), the PSA also ends with a montage of The Situation flipping a row of condoms.

That’s what MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow reported last night, after digging up documents that Bristol Palin has filed paperwork for a new “lobbying, public relations, and political consulting services” company, BSMP LLC. Her full name is Bristol Sharon Marie Palin.

According to Palin’s lawyer, “The code for BSMP, LLC pertains to several areas but includes public relations. Bristol Palin provides public relations services and is currently an ambassador for the Candie’s Foundation.”

The Candie’s Foundation is a pro-abstinence organization. As Maddow noted, “Bristol Palin has essentially set herself up to be paid as an incorporated entity as opposed to being paid as an individual and that’s sort of a common choice people make when they have money coming in from various sources like this.”

Both Playgirl and Playboy are getting aggressive with “celebrity” PR maneuvers this week. Marge Simpson will appear nude in Playboy’s November issue to celebrate The Simpson’s 20th Anniversary.

Meanwhile, Levi Johnston, ex-boyfriend of Bristol Palin and father of Sarah Palin‘s granddaughter will appear nude in Playgirl. Will the PR push around these covers lead to increased sales? Time will tell. It’s certainly already leading to increased buzz.

Former Playgirl editor-in-chief Nicole Caldwell, who is still working with the publication on some special projects, tells PRNewser, “Levi Johnston is the best and brightest thing to come out of the Palin campaign. It’s a pleasure to go from the straight-talk express to the hot jock undressed. The shoot is tentatively scheduled for the first week of November, and I’m just sorry I won’t be there to see this beautiful man in person.”

Johnston, who is training six days a week to prep for the shoot, is also looking into reality shows (of course), his publicist Tank Jones told the AP.
