Following a meltdown featured on Tuesday night's episode in which Bristol accused partner Mark Ballas of not supporting her and wishing he was partners with someone else she stormed out. The pair went on to dance the paso doble, which was an all-time high scorer for the robotic Bristol.
When many speculate Bristol's whiny fit made fans feel sorry for her, talk show host Anderson Cooper was not one of them. Although he does give her props for managing to capitulate on the drama necessary to remain integral to reality TV.

On yesterday's show, Anderson commented: "Anyone who is on a reality show knows that to get attention, you have to have a have a wardrobe malfunction, throw up, have a breakdown — have a storyline. Bristol Palin is a genius because last night she developed a storyline that made her very sympathetic."
While Bristol may have figured out how to work the reality TV circuit (to some degree – her last reality show Life's A Tripp was a complete flop), Anderson suggests the single-mom quit grasping for the spotlight and get a real job!
"I am thinking of starting a job fair for people . . . who just need to get jobs, [like] Lindsay Lohan, Bristol Palin," Anderson joked. "I think they just need to get jobs, stop being on TV!" Oh, Anderson keep dreaming – those famewhores will not go willingly
And speaking of Bristol, she's recently received threats on the set of DWTS! A mysterious package arrived for Bristol containing white powder and demanding she quit the show. The powder turned out to be nothing, but police and FBI are investigating. And guess who's NOT hanging up her dancing shoes despite all the adversity. It's Bristol!
In response to the drama, former politician and budding fitness guru Sarah Palin spoke out defending Bristol's aspirations as a made-for-TV dancing queen.
"Do the haters really think this will stop Bristol and Mark and the show's producers from keepin' on keepin' on? Silly critics — after all these years of goofy antics like this we find these efforts are actually quite motivating!" Sarah wrote on her Facebook Page.
"Bristol's not letting this get her down," Sarah added. "As Bristol shares with anyone targeted by the naysayers in life: “Hey, the haters will hate anyway; the critics will criticize, so you might as well dance!”
Poor Mark. He probably DOES wish on a star for Sabrina Bryan. I would. Can Bristol go away from TV now?
