Bristol took Melissa's place she was also supposed to participate in her show "Fashion Police. Which she refused to do.
Well apparently in response people have been calling her a selfish and a poor sport for not going along with the theme of the show. Which is TOTALLY unfair because being selfish and a poor sport is her birthright as a Palin.
So today Bristol fired up her ghostwriter, and decided to have some words typed on that electronic doohickey to express her deeply held, and invented by another person, reason for not getting off her lazy ass and helping with the show.

Some viewers, it turned out, thought I wasn’t being a good sport by not filling in on the show for Melissa. Though I sort of answered that on the show, I’ll take the opportunity now to explain a bit further.
I didn’t want to be a part of the show, because I don’t believe in judging people on how they look. I like clothes, and heels, and nice things, but I have no place to judge what other people wear on a red carpet. In fact, I’ve been the subject of those kinds of conversations before. I’m sure you all remember the negative things that people have said about me in the press. For example, when I was on Dancing with the Stars after the 2008 election, Joan took it upon herself to talk about the way I looked:
“She should not have been there. Instead of cha-cha-cha, she must have been doing cha-cha-chew. How did she dance for eight hours a day and manage to gain weight?”
She also said I was stupid, that I danced like her old horse, and that she hated me. I’m reliving these old comments to show that I know personally how hurtful Joan’s words can be. And it’s not just me. Everyone goes through their own struggle with weight, skin, relationships… heck everything in life!
On the show, Joan Rivers talked about wanting to live beautifully if you could. Well, we do have an opportunity to speak kindly and not so ugly.
Joan is a funny woman. In fact, I laughed at some of her comments during the taping of Fashion Police and was impressed by how witty she was. But the show is based on making fun of people’s appearances. If I had gone on the show – even though I don’t believe in judging other based on clothes, hair, and weight — it would be like having Melissa speak at a pro life event, even if she’s pro choice.
Wow, I am impressed that Bristol's ghostwriter was able to bring abortion into this post.
Gold star for you Nancy! Really earning those SarahPAC dollars aren't you?
Look I have to agree a little bit with Brancy that having a show that talks about how people dress and how much weight they have gained would probably no be my cup of tea either.
However having signed on for the show, I would have at least appeared on camera and participated as far as I felt comfortable in doing so. After all Bristol did not HAVE to say anything negative about the celebrities if she did not feel like it. Right?
I mean hell, Melissa helped to, at least temporarily, fix Tripp, the least Bristol could have done is sit in front of the cameras and pretended to do Melissa's job.
Besides it is a little difficult to accept that Bristol is NOT a judgmental person when we have so much evidence to the contrary.
Such as rolling her eyes when she meets a teacher in Homer.
Or immediately labeling a man who criticized her mother as a homosexual.
Or calling a DWTS judge "pretty ghetto" for daring to point out she danced poorly.
And don't even get me started about her numerous attacks on liberals.
Oh yeah, SO non-judgmental.
And by the way, since you brought it up, Joan was TOTALLY in the right to point our your inexplicable weight gain during DWTS.
