Bristol Palin’s son to follow in his mother’s footsteps by joining cast of “Dancing with the Stars Juniors.”

Well, this is troubling.

Courtesy of TMZ:

It’s true what they say … the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree ’cause Bristol Palin’s son has officially gone Hollywood.

Bristol’s 9-year-old son, Tripp, will make his reality TV debut on “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors” and he’s in line to bring in a boat load of money if his rhythm’s on point … this according to his minor’s contract, obtained by TMZ.

Just like Honey Boo Boo and Scottie Pippen’s kid … Tripp will get paid $50k just for signing up to do the show. He can make a ton of cash if he survives and up to $130k total if he makes it to the finale. BTW … Stevie Wonder’s son, Mandla Morris, is also joining the cast. The kid’s got music in his blood, so watch out.

For all her railing against the Hollywood elite, it seems Sarah Palin’s daughter and grandson sure love the dough and attention that’s gonna come with it.

To be fair to Tripp, which kid would reject a chance to make $130,000 bucks? 

It is just too bad that Bristol is bringing him along down the same sad path that she chose for herself. 

Sure you make a bunch of money, but what these reality stars lose in exchange for that dough is fairly significant. 

And yes the rumors that Levi and Sunny are also making an appearance of some kind in Bristol’s new show “Teen Mom OG” seem to be true as well. 

I guess it’s true that everybody has a price.

    If I had sex with wife.Bristol, I would be so proud, I would go home and tell my wife.

    Hope they put him in a gorilla suit to hide his pregnancy.

    Who knows why Levi and Sunny agreed. MTV could have required it as a part of Bristol’s deal. And Bristol could have used access to Tripp as her bargaining chip. Hopefully Tripp’s DWTS money is held for him until he reaches adulthood.

    • viv August 23, 2018 at 1:21 pm

      Bristol Palin was born white trash but Levi has no excuse. Tripp doesn’t need this, he is already doing badly at school, no amount of money is going to change that- only loving and dedicated parents can change that but Tripp’s parents (he’s no longer referring to Dakota Meyer as “my dad”) are only interested in what’s in it for them.

      Sunny, I’m disgusted with you.

        I’m disgusted with all of them, and I won’t be watching either show.
        They’re like herpes!

          The show is for 10 to 12 year olds.

    • Charlotte August 23, 2018 at 3:13 pm

      We don’t know the details… perhaps Levi and Sunny initially refused permission for Tripp to go Hollywood, but Bristol cut some back child support as a bargaining chip.

      Not that I think Bristol would be reasonable, but to get him on tv she may have made a deal.

      I won’t judge Levi and Sunny too harshly, because they’ve been saddled with a ridiculous and unfair amount of child support.

      • viv August 23, 2018 at 4:32 pm

        Levi and Sunny – and their little girls – will be saddled for the next 20 years with the consequences of this shit they’ve signed up for. The tabloid media never forget anything, they’ll happily dog those girls’ teen years for cheap shots BECAUSE their parents won’t be able to protect them.

        Oh, but Tripp’s child support won’t be a problem any more….

    Sure does suck to be you.

    Lucky Tripp. He has a career and won’t have to bother graduating high school. He will like bringing in the money and making his parents so proud. Sarah too! She loves career success from those that skip college.

    • Beaglemom August 23, 2018 at 1:09 pm

      Wasn’t his ambition to become a sniper?

      • viv August 23, 2018 at 1:22 pm

        Yeah, that was the week when Dakota Meyer was his dad.

      • Anonymous August 23, 2018 at 5:39 pm

        The poor kid is putty in the hands of these adults. He could have been a dancing sniper if only Sarah hadn’t decided to remove Dakota from the scene. Tripp missed his chance for a patriot’s fame and glory.
        Imagine being the first dancing sniper reality tv star, he could have taken the world by storm. Now he is just a dancing Chucky Sr. Sad.
        Can Tripp sing?

      Considering that he’s not even 10 yet, and the way he’s schlepped around, he’ll be lucky to finish grade school, junior high a pipe dream.
      The way they value education, maybe he’s home-skooled. Just imagine THAT education.

  6. viv August 23, 2018 at 1:12 pm

    I’m very disappointed in both Levi and Sunny for lowering themselves to Bristol Palin’s standard. I wouldn’t sell my dignity and expose my beloved children on mass media for any amount of money.

    OT?”Dear U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz,
    As counsel for the Sandy Hook parents in their Texas defamation lawsuits, we ask that you reconsider your recent statements about InfoWars host Alex Jones.”

    CruzZer ― who pointed out he has also been unfairly attacked by the Infowars host ― came to Jones’ defense.

    “Who the hell made Facebook the arbiter of political speech?” Cruz tweeted at the time. “Free speech includes views you disagree with.”
    ““This is not a question of free speech,” they added. “This is not a question of disagreeing with a person’s political views. This is a question of just how much damage we’re prepared to let a madman inflict on the lives of innocent victims through malicious lies and willful harassment.”

  9. Whatevs August 23, 2018 at 3:12 pm

    Yep. seems they do have a price. Then again, perhaps they just consider it payback for what Bristol stole from them earlier with her child support claims. Seems that if she is now making $250K per year that she should be paying Levi. Hmmm, maybe that’s why she wants them on the show – so they don’t get ideas of asking for some cash back?

    At this point, she’s the one with the lack of a stable home life.

    I’m sorry but that kid gives me the creeps, with his fake smile and dead eyes. Since when do they have dancing with the stars jr, who even watches dancing with the stars where no one even dances?

      That’s just how he appears when he is around Palins. Of course, Palins are the ones selling his image.

  12. Lynette August 23, 2018 at 5:35 pm

    Kinda disappointed that Levi and Sunny are going along with this reality TV bullshit. Can I get back the money I donated to the Go Fund Me effort to help the Johnston’s out a few years ago ??? No, that’s ugly I guess but … Sarah and Bristol have bad mouthed Levi for so many years this just makes me sick. And Sarah has badmouthed ‘Hollywood’ forever and yet … there they are – she and her worthless daughter back on TV.

    Nothing good will come from Levi allowing Tripp to go on Dancing with the Stars Junior. A temporary shot of $$$. This poor boy has been through the ringer with how many “fathers” now? Moving all the time, different states, different houses, different schools.

    I had been so proud of how Levi and Sunny had risen about the Palin drama and moved on with their normal lives. Not anymore.

      I can almost guarantee you that Tripp is going to grow up to be a self-entitled, bullying @sshole.

      I am not going to judge Sunny and Levi as I am not in their shoes to know if financial gains from a one time appearance can have contained possible personal damages and repercussions. As long as the Palins are no longer out there as role model leadership family I am content.

    Hope its worth it Levi and Sunny

    The Palins would have sold their soul for one last time in the limelight and they are going to pay by sacrificing their children? Wow. They should just get a 9 to 5 job like everyone else. Hope the kid isn’t ruined like the Bieber with all that fame and fortune. Ah, well.

    • Anonymous August 23, 2018 at 7:28 pm

      Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston will never achieve Bieber fame, like Priss Briss thought she was the next Kardashian and got that WTH awful chin.
      So much for the x-tian crap they’ve tried to push, and she’ll whine on Teen Mom for sure. No one forced her to spread her legs. She liked it.
      Why would I watch that crap?

  16. dozen August 23, 2018 at 9:57 pm

    Is Tripp aware there is no drinking allowed on set?

    He may be the first kid to singlehandedly have 2 reality shows of his cancelled before turning 10.

    How is he a star?

  17. Sally Heath August 23, 2018 at 10:15 pm

    Hope he washes his face after his mom kisses him like that. With all the dicks she regularly shovels into her mouth, he’s bound to get a rash.

    Bristol Palin’s Ex Levi Johnston and Wife Sunny to Appear on Teen Mom OG

    On Saturday, Sunny responded to questions about Teen Mom during a Q&A on her Instagram Story, including one question asking if she and Levi would appear on the show, which she replied “yes.”

    But, to clarify, Sunny won’t be a new cast member on the show. “Nope!” Sunny replied when asked about becoming a cast member. “Never been a teen mom. Hubby was a teen dad though.”
