Bristol Palin was forced to do Dancing With the Stars as a plot to make "America ... fall in love with" her mom again, writes fellow competitor Margaret Cho in a blog post that's gaining steam. "I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) that the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it," writes Cho, who maintains that she considers Bristol a friend and "really likes" her as a person.
"Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election," Cho continues. "So she told Bristol she 'owed' it to her to do DWTS so that 'America would fall in love with her again' and make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012 with America behind her all the way. Instead of being supposedly 'handicapped' by the presence of her teen mom daughter, now Bristol is going to be an 'asset'—a celebrity beloved for her dancing." Beloved?
