'Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp Recap: Bristol Feels She's 'Failed As A Mom By Picking Worst Dad For Tripp'

Bristol Palin Reality Show

Bristol wishes she could ‘erase half of Tripp’s DNA’ when she finds out her ex, Levi, writes a salacious tell-all about her family! Down on men and down on L.A., she moves back to Alaska. Get all the details on what else happened in the second episode here!

Bristol begs her sister Willow to come back to Los Angeles, ‘she and Tripp need her support.’ Willow gives in and comes back to L.A.

Bristol finds out her her ex, Levi Johnston, wrote a tell-all full of lies about her family. She’s livid and says his reason for writing it is that he has nothing better to do, ‘he doesn’t have a job and the tabloids aren’t interested in his story.’

She talks about Levi being absent from Tripp’s life and says, ‘I failed as a mom — I picked the worst possible candidate for his dad. I wish anyone else could’ve been his dad.’

Bristol says she’s going to call Levi out on his lies. She tries to call him, but he doesn’t pick up. ‘[His lies] don’t hurt me because I know they’re all false,” she says. Bristol wishes she had someone to co-parent Tripp and says she wouldn’t wish the scrutiny her family’s under on anyone.

Bristol goes shooting with friends to take her mind off Levi. They prop up Levi’s book and she shoots it to pieces saying, “This is for all the single moms.”

Bristol decides to go home to Alaska because she’s sick of being harassed. L.A. showed her how much she needs her family.

Back in Alaska, Bristol wants Levi to be a consistent part of Tripp’s life so she asks him to meet up with her to discuss visitation. Levi never shows. Little Tripp says, ‘I never want to come back.’

Bristol realizes ‘Levi is never going to be the type of dad I want him to be.’ She also realizes she has a good thing right in front of her in Gino. She wants Gino ‘to be there and be consistent.’ The two decide to make their relationship ‘official.’

What will happen next? Tune in next week to find out!

She doesn’t like the public scrutiny? Here’s an idea – stop exposing your personal life on a reality show! Bristol is certainly chasing fame – it’s recently been announced that she will take part in the next season of Dancing with the Stars (for the second time). If she insists on being a “celebrity”, she had better get used to public scrutiny.

Really, she made this comment. She IS as dumb as her mother. Without the father, there would be no Tripp…what kind of idiot statement is this? Just shows, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…

Oh, so now Bristol claims she “PICKED” the father? I thought her story was that she got drunk on whine coolers and was raped. Ooooopsie.

No, she failed as a mom, when she start to make stupid reality shows instead of taking care of her child, making stupid homophobic comments and showing herself in every single tabloid….

Fathers Have Rights 2

I think it’s sick and disgusting and shows an astounding lack of parenting skills that this very immature woman has already taught this toddler to say, “I hate you!” and to stick his tongue out at people. Bristol’s efforts to consciously brainwash the child with her constant derogatory remarks towards his (alleged) father is outright psychological abuse. It’s pretty sad that she doesn’t see the harm this is causing her little boy who will one day grow up to read and google anything about himself. Why would Bristol go to such lengths to damage her child’s relationship with the other parent at her own child’s expense? Maybe she has unresolved issues from her own childhood that she is projecting onto Levi and Tripp Johnston. Without some serious psychological counseling Bristol is going to raise up one screwed up kid who is going to need counseling himself. Break the Palin child abuse cycle now, Bristol! And shame on Lifetime for allowing Bristol to claim that she’s doing the show because she wants to be a role model to teens. Nothing could be further from the truth.

What kind of network lets a person simply have a show so that they may constantly degrade the other parent? What a sad world we live in. This poor child needs two parents. A mature adult does not do this. The child will grow up to hate alright. hate the stupid mom that poisoned his little mind. sick sick sick…I hate lifetime..got it removed from my channels last week..thank goodness.

While I don’t quite think I will watch the show, Bristol holds a lot of interest for me. She is a young mom trying to get out of the guardianship of a family, but she is realizing that freedom is tough. I don’t think her saying she wants a different dad for her son is bad. Believe me, by the time he grows up and might see this, he will def know his dad is a loser.

Bristol Palin is pitiful. She says she “Failed as a Mom by picking the worst Dad for Tripp” on a television show that, surly someday, Tripp will watch. Just how is he going to feel about that statement? Apparently, Bristol is lacking brain cells if she doesn’t realize, that had Levi not fathered her son, Tripp himself, would not exist. Also, she used the word “Picked”, yet Bristol and Mommy Sarah told the whole country that the pregnancy was an un-expected. Hummm. The words “Picked and Un-Expected” don’t go hand in hand. Let’s have Bristol explain that discrepancy on her miserable new show. Additionally, Bristol says so many unflattering things about Levi that, while they may all be true, has no one told her is is mentally harmful to talk smack about your child’s father in front of your child? Bristol needs to go on Dr. Phil herself because he would give her the guidance that Mommy Sarah should be giving her darling daughter herself. In her new show, Bristol and younger sister Willow are discussing the scrutiny her family is under and states, “I wouldn’t wish this on anyone”. What??? She is on a television show sharing all her (not to mention her family’s) personal and private business!!! Get real Bristol! You don’t care about anything but trying to drag out your 15 minutes of fame. I for one, will not be watching another minute of her silly and boring show.

We were glad to see her confront all the lies told about her. We thought Levi was a coward for now showing up to play with his son.

You understand that there are tv cameras rolling right? Consider that Levi didn’t want to be on the reality show.

She’s the liar, if you only knew what really goes on in that family. It’s pathetic.

Levi declined Bristol’s invitation to appear on her latest reality show, so of course he wasn’t going to show up for the cameras.

I hardly think that makes him a bad man.

I do think this series makes Bristol in clear violation of her parenting agreement with Levi, however, since they promised not to talk smack about each other in front of their child. I’d call a cable show that’s available on On Demand some pretty high profile smack talk.
