|"Everybody pay attention to me! No stop paying attention to me! Wait, where did everybody go?"|
Sarah Palin's reality-star daughter has obtained a temporary restraining order against a Texas man who allegedly sent her an engagement ring in the mail along with a very unnerving wedding proposal.
E! News confirms Palin sought the protection order saying she fears for her safety from 39-year-old Michael Cummings, who she alleges also sent her a note with the ring saying "I [heart] you" and showed up at her mom's house on her son Tripp's fourth birthday Dec. 27. But that's not all.
Palin's camp claims that she also received a second note with a knife inside that police are looking into, but no confirmation has been made. Her manager David Martin tells E! News that this is a "very serious situation and we're not taking this lightly." Martin tells us that Bristol is "very upset," but her main concern is keeping her family safe.
Okay let me preface this by saying that I certainly want Bristol and Tripp, and even the rest of the batshit crazy Palin family, to be safe from a physical attack. As much as I dislike these people I certainly do not want any physical harm to befall them.
But having said that this story has now moved from the sublime to the ridiculous.
Not only is this information about a knife new evidence, in that TMZ certainly did not have it in their original report, but it also seems kind of strange to send a knife through the mail, with your return address attached, in order to threaten somebody. Somebody by the way that you are apparently attempting to convince to marry you.
Is THAT how they do it in Texas?
Personally I would like to know what was included with the knife. Was there a note or letter explaining what the knife was for? Let's face it if there had been a threatening letter we would be reading all about it, so that leads me to believe it was sent as a gift of some kind (Possibly a pocketknife for Tripp) and that the Palins are simply mentioning it to gin up more sympathy.
However of course it is virtually impossible to take this family seriously when it comes to threats. After all Sarah is the one who famously claimed that her daughters were threatened with gang rape while living in Juneau even though there is NO record anywhere of it being reported to the authorities. (And that includes her own security staff. I know, I talked to them.)
And then of course there is the case of the mysterious white powder that E also mentions in their article:
During both her stints on DWTS—two years ago and again this past fall—Palin had a scare when someone sent suspicious mail containing what turned out to be harmless white powder to CBS studios, prompting a federal investigation.
I mean, come on!
Okay like I said I want the family to be safe, and hope that nobody actually does anything harmful to any of them. However perhaps the next item the Palins should receive in the mail is a little book entitled, "The Boy Who Cried Wolf."
P.S. Before I close this post I would also like to mention that it seems odd, if this were indeed an actual threat, that the two places that it turns up are TMZ and E News. I mean this is the daughter of the ex-Governor of Alaska, isn't THAT something that the regular press might be interested in covering? You know instead of over at a place where the top stories of the day involve who might be pregnant, who got fat, and who was recently seen on the beach topless.
