Oh, Bristol Palin please take your new chin and GO. AWAY.
Last night while filming for her new reality show at Saddle Ranch in LA, Bristol decided to hop on a mechanical bull while wearing her favorite Jesus lovin’ t-shirt. And after she was thrown from the bull, spectator, Stephen Hanks yelled at a giggling Bristol “Did you ride Levi like that? Your mother’s a whore!” Wow – yikes! A furious Bristol immediately stormed over to the man who insulted her famous politically motivated mother, Sarah Palin, and got right in his face wanting to know why he said that!
The two got into a verbal sparring match in which Hanks referred to Sarah as “evil.” Bristol retaliated by asking “Is it because you’re a homosexual and that’s why you hate her?” Hanks confirmed, responding with: “Pretty much … and why’d you say I’m a homosexual?”
Well apparently for Bristol, that was all the answer she needed, and she snapped back – “Because I can tell you are,” leading to accusations that she is homophobic! The confusing and hard to decipher confrontation between two drunk fame whores continued for a couple more minutes until an enraged Bristol stormed out with her camera crew hot on her tail.
Hanks revealed his motivation for insulting Bristol and Sarah was that he “is not a fan of anything Palin,” and that Bristol “proved who she was last night, for sure.” He also assures us that he would do it again, because he is “very passionate about politics”!
In response to the verbal altercation, Bristol’s team released the following statement to TMZ: “The situation ended with no incident, and accusing her of homophobia is completely unfounded.” Her rep continued, defending her actions, by stating she “was approached in a confrontational and inappropriate manner when two men aggressively shouted expletives aimed at her in reference to her mother. Bristol responded to the unprovoked verbal assault by calmly standing her ground and defending her family.”
Well, now Bristol’s co-star, actor Kyle Massey, is calling the incident a “set up,” – through an anonymous source, of course! The source tells TMZ that Kyle “feels the producers of the show were behind it all, but that Bristol had NO part in it.” The source also goes onto to describe that Kyle, who initially believed he was signing up for a scripted show not a reality one, is unhappy “with the direction the show has taken,” and he thinks it “is now ‘sleazy’.”
However, the producers of the yet untitled show claim the incident was completely spontaneous and heckler Stephen Hanks agrees, describing that he was “oblivious to the cameras being there” and didn’t realize they were filming the confrontation! Suuuuure!

Thoughts on the incident – was it a producer set up or just a random occurrence? Do you think Bristol is homophobic or just defending her mother? Will you be watching her reality show?
