Bristol Palin Memoir Confirmed For This Summer — Why Would Anyone Read This?

Tue, March 1, 2011 2:40pm EDT by 4 Comments

The famed(?) daughter of a former vice presidential candidate will be sharing stories of her life. Does anyone care and/or have any desire to hear these stories?

She is a single mom and abstinence advocate, barely graduated from high school and has yet to attend college, but Bristol Palin is still finding work — this time as an author! Galleycat reports, “Bristol Palin has landed a book deal with HarperCollins imprint Not Afraid of Life. Publication is set for this summer.” Why? Why? Why?

“Bristol gives readers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at her life for the first time, from growing up in Alaska to coming of age amid the media and political frenzy surrounding her mother’s political rise,” the descirption states. “From becoming a single mother while still a teenager to coping as her relationship with her baby’s father crumbled publicly—not once, but twice.” And on and on and on and on…

There are thousands of intelligent and educated individuals who would love to be able to have a shot at writing a novel and instead, this? Someone whose biggest accomplishment is riding the fame of her mother’s candidacy and single motherhood to a spot on Dancing With the Stars, a middling reality show?

Sadly, Bristol will no doubt find success with her latest endeavour and no doubt cause one very unlucky ghost writer to lose their mind (please pay this person phenomenally). If we have learned anything from the way this lass harrumphed her way across the dance floor to the Dancing finale, it’s that she somehow finds a way to win in the end. Well, almost win.

This should be motivation for us all to run down to the bookstore and immediately purchase a book by James Joyce, William Faulkner, Virginia Woolf or one of the many, many authors who actually have something to say.

So HollywoodLifers, will you be picking up Bristol’s book? Please say no…

Ms. Palin appears lifeless and displays no emotion (other than being defensive about her dancing and her mother) whenever she is interviewed. It’s really disturbing that this talentless fluke celebrity is being rewarded for having done nothing.

So sad. And she is a celebrity how ???? Might be a greater work of fiction than the Harry Potter series or at least funny as MAD magazine.
