BRISTOL Palin,the second and eldest daughter of the former American Vice-President candidate Sarah Palin, is worried about her safety.
According to recent reports, the 20-year-old teenage mother of one, who is currently enjoying her stint on Dancing With the Stars, has strengthened her security right after receiving a threatening letter containing suspicious white powder at the show’s production office Friday.
This prompted tension among the show’s production and security team as they are concerned with the safety-not just Bristol’s but also for everyone else.
“Everyone is on high alert,” an insider said. “It’s like a scene from The Bodyguard, with Bristol playing the leading lady.
“Nowhere in the world is going to be more secure than the Dancing set on Monday.
“The audience will all go through extreme security checks and not even the president of the United States could get backstage without the appropriate credentials that evening.
“This is a dancing competition, for god’s sake. None of us signed up for this. We should just be worrying about getting the best shots and making sure all our lighting cues are tight, now we are all worrying about our safety. It’s just not right.”
Moreover, Bristol,who is hailed as Teen Abstinence spokesperson,may end up with millions after Dancing With The Stars.
“Bristol could get endorsements, book contracts and TV show offers,” says one insider.
“Like her or not, everyone is talking about her.
“Such a connection with TV viewers pretty well assures Bristol a career if she wants to hop, skip and jump on it.
“She has consistently improved and people can relate to how hard she has worked.
“Bristol is young and hard working. She could remain in high profile situations, or just take this experience back to Alaska and use it to highlight the issues she cares about.”
