Levi Johnston isn’t the only teen parent who wants a piece of the celebrity action. Bristol Palin will be making her television debut soon on an upcoming episode of ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager. (So much for Sarah Palin‘s complaint that the media focuses too much on her kids – this time the Palins are bringing it on themselves.)
On the show, Bristol will play herself, or at least a fictional version of herself who is friends with the show’s protagonist, a girl who is also a teen mother. She said in a statement “I am thrilled to be on this show and to be part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy.” We’re hoping Bristol gets a longer story arc where she can cover issues like how to handle the father of your child after he’s gone rogue and compulsively wants to show off his fine physique to a nation of curious onlookers.
