Well, at one point or another, children always rebel, so I guess it was bound to happen with Bristol Palin sooner or later. Except in her case, I think she is actually right. Sorry, Sarsies!
So, here's the deal. Perhaps it's because of her recent stint on Dancing With the Stars, where gay dudes were pirouetting around her left and right, or perhaps it's just that she's had a change of heart, but Bristol Palin has allegedly banned her mother from her Arizona home because Sarah's against gay marriage! And Mrs. Palin clearly is not happy. According to a source at the National Enquirer (I know, I know):
Bristol is completely rebelling against her mother -- now that she’s experiencing life outside of Alaska and away from Sarah. She has opened her eyes and realized how sheltered and programmed she was.
And it doesn't stop there. The source continues:
When Bristol told Sarah that she is thinking of supporting gay marriage and doesn’t believe religion should have anything to do with equal rights for all, Sarah began fuming. [Sarah] told [Bristol] she better never go public with that thought, fearing it would hurt her political career. Bristol told her mother that she’s a grown woman who makes her own living and is free to believe what she wants. If Sarah doesn’t accept her, she isn’t welcome in her home.
That is some serious, hard-core rebelling. Yowza! I mean, Bristol, after all, is old enough to have children, and old enough to make her own money -- if she doesn't want her mother's anti-gay ways in her house, so be it. I never thought the day would come, but Bristol, I think we actually agree on something.
Truth be told, though, at the end of the day, I think Sarah and Bristol should just respect each other's opinions (even though Sarah's is totally wrong). They are mother and daughter after all, and to not allow your own mother in your house because of what she believes? That's cold. Bristol should just explain her views to her mother -- and if she wants others to know them too, that's her right (sorry, again, Sarsies). I mean, Sarah can't possibly expect her daughter to keep her mouth shut about something she feels strongly about. That is so un-PC, and I vehemently refudiate it.
What do you think about the two Palin girls feuding?
