It had to happen eventually.

Teen Mom Opens a New Window. OG star Bristol Palin Opens a New Window. is still fighting with her younger sister, Willow, weeks after ditching her wedding, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.
A source close to the Palin sisters tells Radar that Willow, 24, has no hope she’ll ever have a normal relationship with the MTV Opens a New Window. star.
“Willow is so beaten down by her siblings, especially Bristol, that she doesn’t even expect anything anymore,” the insider spilled to Radar.
“Bristol and Willow have a really weird past,” said the source. “Bristol never really cared for Willow. She’d take Willow to parties with her, and then Bristol would completely not take care of her or keep an eye on her.”
Bristol and Willow’s sibling rivalry is apparent due to Willow’s recent absence from Teen Mom Opens a New Window. OG. While their little sis, Piper, 17, has appeared on the show, Willow has not been seen on the MTV show in weeks.
I actually can concur that Bristol and Willow have a complicated relationship, made even more so with Bristol’s insistence that her sister participates in most of her bullshit reality shows.
Willow has never made a secret of the fact that she finds all of this reality show nonsense beneath her and only does it because her mother and sister team up against her and shame her into making an appearance or two.
And this is not the only Bristol drama happening at the moment.
It also seems that Bristol has pissed off some of her Teen Mom OG viewers by claiming that parents should not financially support their pregnant teen daughters.
Courtesy of The Ashley’s Reality Roundup:
In a message posted to her Instagram stories over the weekend, Bristol revealed that, when she infamously got pregnant as a teenager in 2008, her parents Sarah and Todd Palin quit supporting her financially, and that she applauds them for doing that!
“People have this assumption that I haven’t struggled with finances but my parents cut me off lonng long ago, like when I got knocked up 10+ years ago (which good parents should do),” Bristol wrote.
As The Ashley previously reported, Bristol was paid a cool $250,000 for joining the cast of ‘Teen Mom OG’ this year. However, Bristol insists that (unlike most of the other ‘Teen Mom’ girls, who have been raking in reality TV money since high school), she had to work an actual job for most of her life.
“Obviously I’ve had opportunities that I have accepted and worked my ass off in, but I have always had a job,” Bristol wrote. “I worked full time at a doctor’s office for over 7.5 years. As a single mom you have to put your head down and work… you can’t try to ‘keep up with the joneses.’
She then advised other single moms (who don’t get a regular check for appearing on a crappy reality TV show) how to make things work.
“You have to sacrifice and work you’re a$$ off, you have to be smart,” Bristol wrote. “Don’t waste money you don’t have. Are nails important? Or a college savings account for your kids? You cannot be prideful. Drive a sh**ty car, live within your means, don’t beat yourself up for working long hours…your kids will see your hustle—put [money] aside for them, for your own retirement—even a little bit at a time helps!”
Later, Bristol told a fan that she gets frustrated when people assume she is well-off because of who her parents are.
“[I wish people knew] how humble and independent I am, and how hard I work,” Bristol wrote. “I hate being painted as entitled spoiled stuck-up girl, because I’m not.”
Oh, but she is!
And she is also lying through her teeth.
Keep in mind I have had Levi in my home several times and I know quite well what happened after Bristol got knocked up.
While it was true that Todd offered her a car if she broke up Levi, and she rejected it, she was still well cared for.
I mean do people really think she made her own doctor’s appointments, paid her own medical bills, and lived all on her own?
What’s more, there were a few surgeries that Bristol received after Tripp was born and Sarah also got her that Candy’s gig and helped her get her on all of those reality shows.
Mom even had her own personal attorney represent Bristol in her early custody fights with Levi and even got her that job that she brags about with the Anchorage dermatologist. (A job she only showed up for occasionally by the way.)
Until this last summer, there was even a blog with her name on it that her mother paid a ghostwriter to maintain on her behalf. We have to know she benefited financially for that as well.
Trust me, without her parent’s financial help, and support, Bristol would have been living out of a box with her son behind the Wasilla K-Mart and turning tricks for McDonald’s french fries.
The only, and I mean the ONLY thing she has going for her is her last name, and the idea that she is in any way self-sufficient is laugh out loud funny.
