FAME-hungry BRISTOL PALIN fears a video showing her using drugs will ruin her bid to relaunch her showbiz career on DANCING WITH THE STARS!
The 21-year-old single mom is desperate to boost her brand with a second stint on the reality TV competition, insiders say, but she’s terrified the video will ruin her comeback.
“The video was shot in 2006, and Bristol is scared to death that it will surface now,” a source close to her told The ENQUIRER.
“Since the first time she was on ‘Dancing’ in fall 2010, Bristol has lost a lot of weight and had plastic surgery on her jaw line. She’s ready for her close-up, but if that video comes out, it would destroy her!”
The existence of the scandalous video – which allegedly shows then-15-year-old Bristol smoking marijuana – was revealed by The ENQUIRER in a world exclusive report in September 2008. At the time, her mother Sarah Palin, then governor of Alaska, had just been tapped to run as vice president alongside Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
“The video was filmed right before Bristol’s mom became governor,” revealed a friend who attended the house party in Wasilla, Alaska, where Bristol was caught smoking on camera.
“Bristol was partying like a rock star, as usual, and one of our pals was videotaping everyone as they drank and got high.
“At one point, he gets to Bristol and one of her friends holds the pot pipe to Bristol’s mouth and says out loud, ‘And here’s the future governor of Alaska’s daughter!’
“Bristol smiles at the camera, puts her lips around the pipe and inhales deeply. She holds in the smoke for a while, exhales, coughs a few times then laughs uncontrollably.”
The people who own the tape “have threatened to sell it before,” a former friend of Bristol’s told The ENQUIRER. “Now they’re thinking about shopping it again.”
Okay I have been hearing about this tape for years now. (In fact there may be more than one.)
I have also seen either a still from the video or a cell phone picture of Bristol smoking the ganja. And yes there is absolutely NO doubt that it was her.
I came across this information while I was attempting to learn more about when she might, or might not, have been pregnant. While doing that, I interviewed a few people who had known, and partied with, the future governor's daughter quite frequently. (Oh and if you think it stopped with marijuana use you are sadly mistaken.)
I am right now staring at a yellow tablet chock full of stories about Bristol's teenage years, that would make Sarah Palin's hair turn white overnight, and cause certain Palin-bots we know to curl up in the fetal position for days on end.
I have never used any of it because ALL of it seems to have taken place while Bristol was underage. But whenever I hear Bristol, or one of her defenders, claiming that Bristol was an "innocent Christian girl" who had been this "straight A student" before Levi corrupted her, I literally have to laugh out loud. NOTHING could be further from the truth!
Essentially it seems that Bristol had very little respect for her absentee mother, and was doing just about everything in her power to make sure that Sarah could not even get elected Wasilla dog catcher, much less governor. My understanding is that Palin spent a substantial amount of her time doing damage control as both Bristol and Willow gained reputations as hard partying hellions in both Wasilla and Juneau. (Oh, and I guess we should include Track as well.)
So does this tape exist? I am convinced that it does.
Will the National Enquirer finally get their hands on it? Well that probably depends on how much the Grizzled Mama is willing to pay to keep it quiet.
Having said that I think that it is absolutely going to come out at some point, one way or the other. I would think that if these folks want to make any REAL money off of it, that their window for doing so is closing fast as most people are simply losing interest in the Palin Wasilla-billy clan.
By the way let me just say that the ONLY reason this is a story worth pursuing in my opinion, is because both Sarah and Bristol have put SO much effort into creating this ridiculous mythology about who they are, and gone WAY out of their way to cover up the truth. Even going so far as to have books written for them to act as literary smoke screens.
Like I said most of what I have heard took place when Bristol was fifteen and sixteen years old. She was a child making childish mistakes.
Do you think I want to be judged on what I did as a teenager? Hell no!
However I am never going to tell you that I was a choirboy who never did anything wrong. That would be bullshit. And so is the life that Bristol describes in her book.
So simply because the Palins have spent so much time manufacturing their image, THIS story is worth reporting, and I hope the people who have this tape release it so that we can finally put an end to the Palin family's overly drawn out fifteen minutes of fame.
