Bristol Palin’s Showdown With Heckler, The tense, expletive-ridden incident is still haunting the reality TV star several months later. Inside Bristol Palin’s reality TV showdown with a heckler [Video], Bristol Palin’s new reality show, “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp,” premieres June 19 on Lifetime, and there’s already off-screen drama: One scene that is being heavily promoted from the show has now resulted in a lawsuit.
You may recall seeing headlines last year about Bristol, now 21, being involved in a bar fight. In case you are fuzzy on the details, here’s what went down:
She was shooting footage last September at Saddle Ranch, a Los Angeles hot spot on the famous Sunset Strip. As she was riding a mechanical bull — it is a reality show, after all — a man confronted Bristol, shouting mean remarks about her mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
“Your mother is a f***ing devil,” he yelled, among other things, which we won’t reprint.”Is it because you’re a homosexual?” she asked the man. “That’s why you don’t like my mom.” The two exchanged some more tense words before someone intervened.
