Bristol Palin recently talked to PEOPLE about her newfound confidence this time around on Dancing with the Stars – but when it comes to her partner Mark Ballas, she still has insecurities.
During a tense rehearsal, she began to cry after getting criticism from Ballas.
"I know you feel bad you don't have Sabrina [Bryan] or Shawn [Johnson]," Palin, 21, tells Ballas, 26, right after he says, "Your energy is off." (God we all know that's true!)
Palin goes on to say, "I feel like you're just bummed that you have me as a partner."
When Ballas asks her, "What have I done to make you feel that way?" Palin says, "Just in general. Like, oh, dang, you got paired with Bristol."
The ballroom pro, who says he always gives 100 percent during the competition, adds, "I'm not dancing around without committing myself. … I can sit here and train you all day. I can give you these choreography steps, but if you don't apply yourself on the floor and give me that personality that I know you can, then I can't force it out of you. I stick up for you through thick and thin – always."
Palin, wiping away tears at this point, says, "You, like, play this victim role. I know that I'm here, I'm on time, I'm ready to go. I wouldn't be on the show if I wasn't going to take it seriously."
After calling her partner out for missing a rehearsal, Palin sits down and types on her phone.
"Can you not be like that?" Ballas asks, putting his hands on her legs. "Don't be like that."
Palin then gets up and says, "I'm just not doing this anymore," while walking away.

Did she seriously accuse HIM of playing the victim?
Throwing a tantrum and projecting YOUR personality flaws onto other people, it's like Sarah and Bristol are virtually the same person now.
She probably realizes she is about to get the boot, and she is undoubtedly right since they are having a double elimination tonight.
Jesus, what a spoiled little bitch.
Of course I guess Bristol can take some solace in making the list of Hollywood parents that pimp their kids. I think in the Palin family this is like winning an Oscar.
Well hopefully tonight is the LAST time we have to watch the Chin stumble across the stage like a recently sedated walrus, while Mark kills himself trying to dance for two.
Fingers crossed kids!
P.S. Yes this post will also serve as the open thread for tonight's episode.
Update: Well it looks like Granny Grifter is not satisfied to simply read about Bristol in the National Enquirer, she has also used her Facebook account to bolster claims that Bristol has been receiving "death threats" and to pimp for votes.
I’m in California today to support Bristol. I’m sorry to see that she’s again getting those annoying death threats and more “mysterious white powder” sent to her while on DWTS this All-Star season. These threats sure waste a lot of time, production and public resources; but do the haters really think this will stop Bristol and Mark and the show’s producers from keepin' on keepin' on? Silly critics -- after all these years of goofy antics like this we find these efforts are actually quite motivating! Bristol’s not letting this get her down. Anyway, tonight is a “double elimination” night, so hopefully everyone who has supported her so far will do so again! I'll be sure to post the call in number and voting instructions later today before the event. Thank you again to everyone. It means a great deal during this fun and highly competitive event, and it's sure appreciated!
As Bristol shares with anyone targeted by the naysayers in life: “Hey, the haters will hate anyway; the critics will criticize, so you might as well dance!”
I assume she had RAM write this for her before the video emerged of Bristol's tantrum, in which she went from "might as well dance" to "fuck this might as well walk away."

Update 3: Here is the dance. Just as bad as you probably imagined.
