The 20-year-old Palin progeny packed her bags and moved very far south, and now we know why!

Bristol Palin is making moves (literally) and we have the answers! HollywoodLife.com spoke to a source close to the Palin camp who reveals why she left her mom Sarah Palin and baby daddy Levi Johnston in the snow in Wasilla, Alaska and moved with her 2-year-old son Tripp into a brand-new five-bedroom home in Maricopa, Ariz.

It’s all about the rubber chicken and Chardonnay circuit, turns out. Bristol wants to pursue a public speaking career and travel all around the country like her mom!

“She does a lot of speaking engagements and she wants to pursue them,” our source says. “She wants to be more centrally located and Alaska was too far for her to fly all over the country.”

We heard that Bristol would be attending Arizona State University in the fall, but they’ve yet to confirm that’s the case. We also told you that she might be pursuing a reality TV show with Teen Mom star Maci Bookout, but our source says that’s not true either.

“She’s been talking with Mix 96.9 FM to co-host the morning show,” our source says. “They’ve been talking with her agent every week and and it looks like it will happen.”

HollywoodLife.com spoke to the program director at the station, Ron Price who says: “We are hopeful it will happen. It’s a definite possibility.”
