Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin (whose reputation also precedes her) has signed a book deal with William Morrow, an imprint affiliated with the publishing house, HarperCollins. She is releasing a memoir titled Not Afraid of Life, and it is set to be released this summer.
According to the Associated Press,
Bristol gives readers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at her life for the first time, from growing up in Alaska to coming of age amid the media and political frenzy surrounding her mother’s political rise; from becoming a single mother while still a teenager to coping as her relationship with her baby’s father crumbled publicly — not once, but twice.
No offense to Bristol, but what makes her think that a substantial amount of people are interested in reading about how she lives her life? Aren’t we busy living our own? The media is constantly covering whatever it is that she and her mother do, and now she is just going to retell everything we have been trying to tune out.
She’s not the only one who has an annoying mom, or dealt with teen pregnancy, or tried to be in the spotlight multiple times (hello, Teen Mom?). It is just very unclear what she is trying to achieve by writing about herself. If I were you, Bristol, I would think twice. This will just be another way to gain notoriety…unless that was her plan all along?Tags: Associated Press, Bristol Palin, HarperCollins, Sarah Palin, Teen Mom, William Morrow
