Bristol Palin gets in 'confrontation'...for reality show?

Remember Bristol Palin? Just kidding! How could you forget, between her memoir, her "Dancing With the Stars" stint, "corrective jaw surgery" and now a throwdown that happened as she reportedly taped her upcoming BIO Channel reality show.

While hanging out at a place called the Saddle Ranch in L.A. and enjoying a night of mechanical bull riding, TMZ reports that a heckler yelled out at Palin, "Do you ride Levi like that? Your mother's a whore."

As cameras of some sort rolled, Palin marched over to the offender and demanded to know why he thought her mother is "evil." TMZ reports that Bristol asked the heckler if the reason he disliked her mother was because he was gay.

The Palin family's attorney tells CNN in a statement regarding the incident, "Bristol Palin was approached in a confrontational and inappropriate manner when two men aggressively shouted expletives aimed at her in reference to her mother. Bristol responded to the unprovoked verbal assault by calmly standing her ground and defending her family. The situation ended with no incident, and accusing her of homophobia is completely unfounded and totally misstates her views."

The network for her upcoming reality show, BIO, didn't have a comment on what happened, but the rumor is that Palin's co-star Kyle Massey thinks the showdown was all for the program's cameras. Citing unnamed sources, TMZ claims that Massey believes the tiff was crafted by the producers, although he reportedly doubts that Bristol had anything to do with it.

The website continues that these anonymous tipsters say Massey isn't pleased with the direction the show's taking. However, a source close to the production of the reality series maintains that the production team had nothing to do with the heckler's outburst.

Palin announced in May that she was moving in with fellow "DWTS" contender Massey and his younger brother, Christopher when she relocated to Los Angeles.

"Since ['Dancing With the Stars']," the BIO Channel said in a statement at the time, "Bristol, Kyle, and Kyle's brother...have become best friends; so much so, that since Bristol and Tripp have to move to Los Angeles for her new job, she decides to move in with the Massey brothers who are also about to realize how much their lives are about to change."

    Next news report about this incident will be that the Palin attorney has contacted this man and accused him of threatening to rape Bristol and her sisters; hacking into their computers or being a stalker. Lucky thing for the Palins that they have so many attorneys on Sarah's personal staff–act as an enforcer and make threats so the Palins can continue their lying and bullying.

    Bristol Palin is an underachiever- a non-producer. She has no job other than reality shows and media sensationalism, she has no college degree to speak of, Nothing really substantial going on in her life at all. I'm a left wing, libtard, socialist seeming, silver haze smoking radical, yet somehow I've done far better job raising my kids than Sarah Palin. Go figure.

    Recently the Palin family was written about by author Nick Broomfield. It exposes the fraud of Sarah and Bristol. He said this of Sarah I think it applies to Bristol as well, “Sometimes when you hear her talking it’s as if she doesn’t quite understand what she’s saying. She comes out with all this stuff and you think, 'Who’s the real person here? You’ve learned the speech, but who are you?’ ”

There is an organization out there right now trying to abolish that word from our language and yes it's sponsored by special olympics.

      These children/adults are not "tards" "Retards" or "Retarded" they do suffer from various degrees of Mental Retardation that is the scientific term.. however that doesn't make them "TARDS" or whatever other stupid configuration you can come up with.. so yes it is a bad word in our world.. and it should be in yours.. how would you or any of you feel if some one said that about your sister, your brother, neice, nephew, or even your own child! It infuriates me when ANY child is called that. These people .. These amazing people just want to have friends, be loved and accepted. Trig may be a palin that isn't his fault he didn't chose his family.. but god doesn't make mistakes and that child is a blessing just like all of them are.. so please people ease up on the WORD.. look up "spread the word to end the word" and see what I am talking about..

Since that jerk could not answer, she won. She did not have to sink to the disgusting and hateful sewer level that she did. As a child of a politician, she already knows this.

      Damn, now I have to eliminate the Bio channel too. When will all this reality crap TV get there own channel so with just one click I never have to see any of it again?

    Tsk! Tsk! That's not nice, Mult-tasking at work! You should be ashamed of yourself talking like that. The kid or his mother, Sarah, can't help it that he's mentally challenged. You better hope God has mercy on you and other idiots like you.

    For ar much as I dont like Sarah Palin, I would never cross the line bring their kids in the middle of it nor would I talk down toward a childs health like this idiot above has just done. Ur mother must have been absent when it came time 2 teach u manners and respect. -Maybe @ the bar-
