Should Bristol Pay Back $262,500 Fee As Abstinence Ambassador?

June 26th, 2015 8:34am EDT
Bristol Palin
It was a promise she couldn't keep. Now, the pledge Bristol Palin made may come back to haunt her.

Sarah Palin's daughter, 24, made a public pledge to In Touch magazine five years ago when she gave birth to her first child, Tripp, with Levi Johnston. Bristol's promise: Not to have sexual intercourse again before walking down the aisle in Holy matrimony, citing an ET celebrities report.

"I'm not going to have sex until I'm married."

Reportedly, two years later, Bristol Palin double-downed on her pledge. Sources say Palin was tapped to be an abstinence ambassador for Candies Foundation...

Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin and Fox News are parting ways.

The former Alask governor's contract with the news network won't be renewed, and according to Politico the two "amicably parted ways" earlier this month.

Fox hasn't given a reason for letting Palin go, but she's only appeared on the network a handful of times in the past year, her most recent coming earlier this month when she made waves commenting on the Duggar family molestation scandal.

Palin joined Fox in 2010 as the host of series Real American Stories, but she was let go in 2013. Shortly after, Fox signed her on again.

According to People...

Bristol Palin and mom Sarah have blasted the media's heavy coverage of the scandal that has left the Duggar family's reality series 19 Kids And Counting suspended by cable network TLC, while overlooking the recent molestation admissions made by actress Lena Dunham in her memoir.

Bristol wrote a blog post on Thursday titled, "Let's Get This Straight, Liberals – What Kinds of Molestation are Acceptable?" and called out the "liberal media" for its coverage of Josh Duggar's recent confession that he molested five young girls (four of whom were his sisters) from 2002-03, when he was 14 and 15 y...

Palin Blasts Moore & Rogen Over 'American Sniper' Comments

January 20th, 2015 11:10am EST
Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin has spoken out about all the "Hollywood leftists" who are blasting "American Sniper," including filmmaker Michael Moore and actor Seth Rogen.

Moore and Rogen both commented on the biopic of celebrated U.S. sniper Chris Kyle. Moore didn't name any names, but said that all snipers are "cowards" because an uncle (who he never met) was killed by one in WWII; while Rogen compared the film to the six minute propaganda film in "Inglourious Basterds."

Sarah Palin Shows Christmas Cleavage In Viral Video (Watch)

Sarah Palin Shows Christmas Cleavage In Viral Video (Watch)
Sarah Palin's excited for you to read her Christmas book, "Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas."

SO excited, in fact, that she's taken the opportunity to plug the book (written in 2013 for last year's Christmas) in a new video on her online news channel.

But it seems doubtful that people will be talking much about how to "protect the heart of Christmas" (which, according to Palin, is a two-pronged process- stopping "a few angry atheists with attorneys," then brewing a hearty moose chili).

Instead, they'll be talking about Palin's cleavage, nearly spilling out o...

"True Blood" star Kristen Bauer van Straten, who plays vampire Pam, got a kick out of making Republican Sarah Palin angry over the show's portrayal of conservative women.

Cruz called the episode "misogynist and profanity-ridden." Palin said she refused to do a cameo on the show, and HBO confirmed it had asked her to appear in it. Palin then slammed the program for insulting conservative women, according...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies 50/50
After hearing all the hype about “Drive,” I couldn’t believe how much I hated it. It starts out promising: director Nicolas Winding Refn has some cool backseat perspectives of the driver (Ryan Gosling), and a sleek electronic soundtrack gives his shots of LA a seedy, neon glow.

However the directing quickly becomes pretentious, since Refn frequently reuses the same types of shots. Then the 80s style pop starts to feel COMPLETELY wrong, especially when you’re hit by unexpected, excessive violence on screen. These things would be more tolerable though, if the film effectively built drama...

Comic-turned-TV presenter George Lopez has vowed to banish himself to Canada if Sarah Palin ever becomes president of the United States.

The former Alaskan governor previously ran for the vice-president position during John McCain's Republican bid for the White House in 2008, and became a controversial figure due to her right-wing stance and apparent lack of foreign affairs knowledge.

Palin has not ruled herself out of potentially running for the top job next year, but Lopez, who is a Democrat and longtime campaigner for Latino rights, is adamant he will move north if she ever is made l...
