Bristol Palin may be liberated enough to have had a kid out of wedlock at age 18, but that doesn’t mean she’ll be flashing any naughty bits on Dancing with the Stars.
Interviewed on Edgy Conservative, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s now-19-year-old daughter chats about competing on ABC’s hit reality series, Season 11 of which gets under way Sept. 20.
“People have been talking so much about how I’m going to wear the most modest things—and I’ve been criticized for that,” she tells hosts Nicole Coulter and Amy Thoms.
“But I’m not gonna show that much skin. That’s just not who I am.
“I want to be covered up, and the costumes are definitely gonna have to be tailored to how I am and how I dress,” continues Bristol, whose competition will include such vixens as Audrina Patridge, Jennifer Grey and Margaret Cho.
Moments later, when Amy points out that many of the female DWTS contestants’ costumes look “like if they spin too hard, it’ll spin right off,” she says:
“Yes but, they have the bodies to wear them. And I’m a mom, I don’t.”
Bristol, who’ll be paired with Mark Ballas on the show, also reveals what compelled her to appear on DWTS.
“This is for fun. This is for me to get out of Alaska, get out of the situation I was in down there with my ex-boyfriend [Levi Johnston, father of her son Tripp], and do something fun and for myself.
“It’s awesome for Tripp and myself to be in California and be away from everything that was going on down there.”

“I highly doubt I would,” Bristol (above with Tripp) says of running for office, “because I’ve seen such negative aspects of it.”
