The hit TV series The Secret Life of the American Teenager, which addresses teen pregnancy, will have America's most popular teen mom, Bristol Palin, in an upcoming episode as herself.
"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," Palin, 19, tells UsMagazine.com in a statement.
She definitely won't have to dig deep for inspiration, she has a 1-year-old with ex Levi Johnston.
As they say, when life hands you lemons, make lemonade, and I think that's exactly what she's doing. Yeah, she definitely didn't plan on getting pregnant but she did. Life goes on. And instead of hiding away, she's opening up about it in hopes that others can learn from her.
I give Bristol props for that.
ECMOM970: Good for her :) Proving that teenage moms can get good jobs and finish school! I was a teenage mom...finished high school, went on to college to earn a degree in Social Work which I earned on my own!
Kays_Mama06: I mean, who else could play the role better? I think some will see the "vain" side of this, but in the end, there will be at least one girl that will listen better because she has been through it.
What do you think of Bristol's new gig?
