From the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES:
Things keep getting interesting behind the scenes on ”Dancing With the Stars.” A show insider says, ”Move over, Michael Bolton! Bristol Palin is now out-diva-ing you!”
The source said the daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has become a constant pain in the rear for “DWTS” staffers. ”Clearly she didn’t read the fine print on her contract — and that’s just a figure of speech. There’s nothing hidden in the contracts,” said the ”Dancing” source.
”Otherwise, Bristol wouldn’t be complaining about all the things contestants are required to do.”
Bristol and Mike The Situation Sorrentino, like their predecessor on DWTS, Kate Gosselin (whose only achievement to date seems to be squeezing out 8 kids), are now considered stars. Captain Underpants is flirting with Snooki on Twitter. Combine that with the news now becoming nothing but entertainment and the race for ratings, would this be inconceivable in the near future?

Supposedly, the daughter of John McCain’s 2008 running mate is unhappy with the number of press interviews required of the stars. She also has had some major run-ins with show wardrobe designers over the various outfits being planned for her first performances — thinking they are too revealing.
”She is so clueless,” added the source. ”I’ve learned she never had watched the show before now, so she didn’t realize the sexy dance outfits are all part of it, especially if you have a relatively decent figure and are young.”

On top of all that, Palin reportedly has been very upset by some questioning — from staffers and other contestants — about both her mom (and her expected run for the presidency) and ex-beau Levi Johnston and his less-than-flattering cracks about Bristol competing on the ABC series.
• It didn’t take Sarah Palin long to play ”Mama Grizzly” for her daughter, tweeting, ”Wow! media goofballs rearing heads this wk, big time! Wonder what’s up? Taking the cake: ink re:Bristol=a diva? Silly; obviously have nvr met her.”
No, but some people we trust have!
