Dancing with the Stars alum Bristol Palin, 21, is returning to the small screen this summer in her very own Lifetime reality TV series, Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp, where viewers will see a “normal” side of her.
“I think I have tough skin and I know that God is on my side and my faith is everything to me,” the mom of Tripp, 3, told Good Morning America. “It’s just the root of my life and my family’s life and I think it will do well,” she said.
Sarah Palin’s daughter – who welcomed Tripp in December 2008 with ex Levi Johnston – said her critics don’t get her down. “When people are talking poorly about me, I think it just gives me more motivation to want to do more and want to speak up even louder and they’re just not doing themselves well by doing that,” she said.
Declaring herself a “grounded, normal mom,” Bristol said her mother supports her career choices. “She supports me and she knows that I have good judgment so she is definitely in support of it,” Bristol shared.
And Tripp had no objections to having cameras at home, says the young mom. “Tripp didn’t care if the cameras were there or not,” she said. “He’s still going to be rowdy, he’s still going to be a little terror, but it was fun. It was a lot of fun.”
