Bristol Palin, Joan Rivers to Swap Families on ‘Wife Swap’By: Sean Patterson - June 7, 2013
Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, is once again diving into the world of reality TV. Bristol came to fame during her mother’s 2008 run for Vice President, when it was revealed that she, only 17 years old at the time, had become pregnant out of wedlock. Now, she will be handing over her four-year-old son, Trip, to the world’s most famous insult comic.
Palin will appear in the upcoming season of ABC reality show Celebrity Wife Swap. She will be swapping lives and families with comic Joan Rivers. Rivers and her daughter, Melissa, will be heading to Wasilla, Alaska, while Bristol and her sister Willow will be moving into the Rivers’ Los Angeles area home.
Palin has been trying to make it on reality TV for years at this point. In 2010 she appeared on the 11th season of ABC ballroom dance competition Dancing with the Stars, coming in third place. Last year she starred in her own short-lived reality TV show titled Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp.
