Bristol: Stiff as a Board

Gone are the days of being shunned for being a teenage mom. The past taboo is now a Hollywood hot ticket, with shows like Secret Life of the American Teenager and MTV's Teen Mom pulling in major ratings. The babymomma du jour is Bristol Palin, daughter of former vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Palin.

Aside from appearances on national talk shows to discuss her son, Tripp, and her decision to abstain from sex until marriage, Bristol also has a guest role on Secret Life of the American Teenager. A show about a teenage mom seems like the perfect fit for young Palin. Only problem: she can't act.

Watching Bristol attempt to pull of this acting gig is like hearing fingernails on a chalkboard. I'm first to admit that I'm not an actress, but even I could put a little more pizazz into this scene! Let this be a lesson to casting directors: just because a person plays a role in real life does not mean that it will translate well on screen.

What do you think of Bristol's television appearance?
