Put your shotgun away, Palin-hatin' crazed Wisconsinites! There'll be no more Palins dancing in the finals of Dancing With the Stars - because there will never be another Palin on the show!
Okay, well, we shouldn't say never. Hate to burst everyone's bubble, but America seemed to love to hate on Bristol Palin while she was on Dancing With The Stars this season and the ratings are good testament to that!
However, despite the viewership, DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba doesn't think there will be another Palin on the roster for a long time. While at the Trevor Live benefit at the Hollywood Palladium last night, she told sources:
"I think one Palin was enough for awhile. I think we need to go on a Palin vacation for a minute… Although it was great media attention, I think it was too controversial. I think people got confused about what they were rooting for: Are you voting for dancing on the show or are you voting for a Party? I think that made it very uncomfortable for a lot of people who just want to see a dance competition. I like to keep it simple. I think it diluted the nature of the competition."
Yeah, uncomfortable is exactly the way we'd describe our experience with watching Bristol dance. Very uncomfortable.
So the Palins are out…but what about Levi Johnston? Could he be the next quasi-celeb to show off his twinkle toes?!
