Bristol Palin is the latest of the family to score a gig in Hollywood. Her mother Sarah Palin seems like she’s here to stay, and even her deadbeat ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston got to pose for Playgirl magazine.
But now it’s Bristol’s turn to shine. The teen has reportedly scored a guest-starring role on ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager. She’ll play herself, and befriend the lead character Amy as a member of a music program for teen mothers on an episode expected to air when the series returns for its third season this summer.
Bristol said in a statement, “I am thrilled to be on this show and to be a part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy.”
The show is just as excited to have Bristol on board for a guest appearance. Series executive producer Brenda Hampton remarked in a statement, “Bristol Palin is the most famous teenage mother in America. We’re thrilled to have her join us, and I think she will bring additional attention to the issues facing teen parents that we’ve been exploring for a couple of seasons now.”
Well, if Bristol is going to land a TV gig, this is probably the most appropriate show for her to be on! Her appearance will air later this year.
