Bristol Palin speaks on suspicious 'DWTS' package

On Monday's "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars," the remaining celebs and their pro partners were tasked with re-envisioning a stand-out routine from a prior season. (This edition of "DWTS" is all about the memories, apparently.)

The theme worked best for Melissa Rycroft and Kelly Monaco, who both scored the highest marks. Rycroft's redo of J.R. Martinez's samba with partner Tony Dovolani nabbed a 27 from the judges, as did Kelly Monaco's paso doble with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, as inspired by Laila Ali.

And even though Bristol Palin was frustrated with partner Mark Ballas during rehearsals, she still earned praise from the judges. That performance nonetheless scored just a 22.5, though.

But Palin's surely had better weeks. As she explains in the video above, she and Ballas had their first fight, which was apparently sparked by Palin feeling a little neglected, and then there's that whole "suspicious package" ordeal.

Keeping in line with "DWTS" deja-vu theme this year, a mysterious package arrived last week for Palin at CBS Studios. (E! News reports that in 2010, an envelope filled with what turned out to be a harmless substance was sent to CBS with the aim of getting under Palin's skin.)

ABC isn't commenting on this year's package, but Palin and her partner Ballas have.

"It's a dance show, relax," Ballas said, adding that he hoped whomever sent the package "didn't pay for first class stamps. That's a waste of money."

Palin agreed, saying, "I know. That was a waste of money!" Her advice on the situation? "Just chill."

    Lovely. Famous for opening her legs at 16 and popping out a kid while she was still in high school. Oh, wait.

    After she dropped out of high school.

    Her son will be SO proud someday

  3. WakeUp America

    Palin family spent their time on a TV show and used their political cloud to keep Bristol on a TV dance show! This is the Presidential election year. How can America people think that this family represents their political values? Should the Palin family spend their time in helping to improve the America's future? Instead, they abuse their political cloud to promote their personal interests. People, wake up!! You support this family because you think they represent your interest and represent the America values? Really, you honestly believe that? It is time to wake up.

  4. Concern

    It is interesting to see how one political party wants to control every aspects of the US citizens, even including a dance TV shows. It reminded us of a "Big Brother". If citizens do not wake up, these people deserve what they get. What else do these group of people want to control – Oh yes, women's freedom and choice. Then what is next? Scary thought. Bristol is just a figure head to show off the power and control of her mother's supporters. Let's see what is the next sensation Bristol will create due to her mother's power. Stay tuned.

    You know regardless of the way you feel personally about her don't lose sight of the fact that she is a person with real feelings and emotions. The blatant viscious attacks against her are really unecessary and prove nothing other then the fact people like to completely destroy others without any regard for them. If she was your daughter would your feelings be the same. I think she knows she is not the best dancer out there and doesn't pretend to be but the structure of the show allows this to happen..Don't hate on her, she's just a kid who was asked to compete and as bad as it may appear sometimes, i am almost certain it is better then you or i could do. So...The fact she is still in...What can you do..But please people consider yourself in that spot or your own kid in that spot and your the parent in the stands while everybody around you lets you know how bad your kid sucks and doesn't belong.. Deep breath and enjoy the show

  7. Watcher

    I have been a watcher of DWS since the first show but will no longer watch. The fact that a no talent person like Palin is still the show (and should have never been on the first time) has made me a non watcher from now on. I can't believe that viewers have put up with this for this long! I would suggest that they set a specific number of times that a person can finish at bottom from the judges score and then sent home after all they are the experts!!!

      Bristol is not getting votes, her mother, republican and tea party radicals are. She surely can't dance and is surely no celebrity. How can the republican party be so contentious as to vote on a dancing contest for a contestant based on their party affiliation. She probably can't spell republican. I know it ruffled a lot of feathers the last time Palin was on and danced with the grace of a hedge hog and we have to go though it again. God save the union. This is the republican thought process to take care of your own. Beware USA, you're treading in dangerous waters in less than a month

    Bristol Palin is not a star so I've never understood why she was on DWTS for the second time, let alone the first time. Bristol needs to 1) grow up, 2) go to college, 3) get a job to support herself and son and 4) most importantly, BE A MOTHER to her son!!! Her true colors really showed when she walked out of rehearsal. A spoiled, immature brat that is where she is today because of her mom.

      haha..I wondered how long it would take you to mention her mother.....Did you ever think she had a hell of a week with all of the bullying..harsh critics..and yes, comparisons to her mother..because it is all about politics to some people. I do agree, I dont think she, kirstie, or pam ever belonged on the all stars ddancing show..but while she is the most improved...never fear, she will be eliminated and you will have to find someone else in Sarah's political circle to b***h about...She has guts..I give her that

    Here's a young woman whose teen pregnancy would've only made her a statistic, if not for the fact that her mother was thrust into the national limelight. Her mother's celebrity made her a target for the MOST MERCILESS BULLYING ever doled-out by the media and the general public. The "mysterious package" alluded to was undoubtedly a publicity stunt of the network, because they know young mothers will stand by another young mother who's being bullied (and vote for her when they otherwise would never watch their show, much less vote.) The media and the haters made her a celebrity. As the target of all the public bullying, she's never lost sight of the fact that she's very fortunate there are morons in the entertainment industry who want to throw hundreds of thousands of dollars at her for participating in TV shows, something anyone with no training could do. She's very wise to accept ridiculously high-paying job offers. To all the people who join in on the bullying of Bristol Plain, shame on you. If you ever experience being beaten down mentally and emotionally for a period of years, I believe most of you would find you lack the character to survive it. God Bless the victims of the media.

The last time she was on DWTS she some how up-stage Brandy, (no one saw that coming) but as most of us with any common sense know that these type of programs are about the ratings, it's not hard to see that the apple don't fall far from the tree...
