Who Did Bristol Palin Switch With On Wife Swap, Talk about life being a Tripp! Single mom Bristol Palin recently left the rural confines of her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska, to trade places with reality star Melissa Rivers on the season premiere of ABC’s “Celebrity Wife Swap.”
The teen abstinence advocate had a chance to live the life of a busy Hollywood mogul when she moved in with Rivers’ mother, famed comedian Joan Rivers, into their sprawling Los Angeles mansion. “We just come from very different lifestyles-very, very, very, different lifestyles,” Bristol told FOXNews.com exclusively. “We both got to live kind of in each other’s shoes for a little bit. I come from a teeny-tiny town. They go do big things and that’s just not me. I like my own simple life, I like my little house and just doing my little daily routine.”
Despite some rocky moments, Bristol managed to bond with the matriarch of the Rivers clan.
“I think Joan is just awesome,” declared Bristol. “I think at the end of the day, her family is the most important thing to her, just like with me-my family the most important thing to me.
While in Los Angeles, Bristol got a chance to act as executive producer of E!’s snarky style show, “Fashion Police.”
“I kinda do Melissa’s job, I got a glimpse of what she does, and she does do a lot,” admitted Bristol. “They have a lot of shows and a lot of projects going on. Definitely not something that really interests me, but it was fun to be able to see her lifestyle and her projects and what they do on a daily basis.”
While Bristol has been on her fair share of reality shows, she has been working at a local dermatologist’s office for the past four years. “I’ve got an awesome boss here,” said Bristol. “Unfortunately, that’s not on “Wife Swap” due to HIPAA laws-you can’t come film in a medical facility. So, unfortunately, Melissa won’t be doing my job on the swap, but I do have a job and I have been working here for a long time.”
Bristol-who was perhaps America’s most famous teen mom before the title was usurped by culinary student-turned porn star Farrah Abraham-doesn’t think much of the former MTV’s star foray into adult entertainment. “I don’t read into much gossip sites,” said Bristol. “But I think on something like a sex tape, its just buying into all that crap. I just feel bad that that’s what she thinks she has to do to earn a living.”
