Bristol Palin to Dress Moderately on 'DWTS'? Please Hold While I Laugh


Bristol PalinIf it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, acts like a duck ... it's a duck, right? Unless it doesn't dress like a duck. Then it can keep that virgin- duck-like identity.

Bristol Palin has vowed (much like that empty vow we all take in middle school about saving ourselves for marriage) to not wear revealing clothing during her stint on Dancing With the Stars.

That's ironic on so many levels.

See, here's the thing ... DWTS is notorious for their scantily clad costumes. That's half the fun! So why would you knowingly go on a show that's famous for their wardrobe (or lack thereof) if you want to do the tango in a nun outfit?

Bristol, the gig is up. You carry a baby around with you. We all know that you have had (gasp!) S-E-X.

She tells People, “I think I will be the most dressed [contestant and have] the most modest outfits for sure because that’s who I am,” and that she wants to set a good example for her son.


If the whole example thing is really the issue here, then I say this again, do not go on a show with sexy costumes.

Is there an echo in here?

What are your thoughts? Think she should have gone on DWTS if she's going to go against their typical costume?

If she knows how they dress, why would she want to be in DWTS? Probably just doing it to make the press or something like that!


I will start by saying that I am not at all a fan of the Palins,  but honestly,  I find this quite silly.  Just because she had sex before marriage *GASP* does not make her an immodest slut.  I had sex before marriage and imagine this:  I dress modestly and would not be comfortable in an outfit that "barely covers the subject".   If Bristol wants to dress more modestly then more power to her.

What do dressing provocatively and being sexually active have to do with one another? Just because someone is having sex (even before marriage), that means they should 'get real' and bare their breasts for the world???
Should she just dress provocatively all the time??
What a ridiculous confluence of issues.
Good for her.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but DWTS is about Dancing. And the only reason you think it's mostly about skimpy costumes is because no one like Bristol has come along and said "Yes: Dancing, No: Slutty clothes".

They the dancers dress on that show is sex and if she ever watched that show she should not that but I still don't have a clue why she is going to be on there when she isn't a star.

I had a baby very early (sex before marriage) but that doesn't mean that I want to show EVERYTHING off! I dress very conservatively for my age and yeah it has to do with the fact that I had a son early! I don't want my child or siblings to do what I did and I don't want them to think it's okay! And are the ones for this saying that they never had sex before marriage? And if o shouldn't you too be dressing the way you think she should? And she's like 18-19, if she was dressing like Nicole or Pamela or any of the other women that have been on that show then people would be talking about her for that!!!!!

Sex no sex, Sarah's daughter, not Sarah's daughter, who cares. The costumes match the type dance being preformed from floor length evening gowns to very little costume at all. That's what she signed up for, I wish these so called "Values" people would create thier own shows and leave DWTS to the people that enjoy it.

Bristol is what we as high school kids called a "puppy slut" and generally they grow up to be "whore dogs." No social conscience.

I like Bristol, shes very shy. so you people knotting her because she become pregnant, probably did the same.. as she did maybe, you did not get caught... but stop throwing stones , she made a mistake.. she's a very good mom. its her B/F that was her mistake. he is dogmeat..........(Levi Johnson ............
