The 25 Worst Reality TV Stars of 2012

17. Bristol Palin (Life's a Tripp, Lifetime)

When the star of a show—as well as the show itself—is more known for getting into a bar fight with a guy in a bar after directing derogatory and homophobic language towards him, it’s safe to say that the show is doomed. Unfortunately, this was exactly the case for Bristol Palin’s short-lived reality series Life’s a Tripp, which followed the young mother and she and her son settled back in Alaska after living in California.

The bar fight and the fact that she’s Sarah Palin’s offspring aren’t the only offenses against this show, though. There's also an episode where Tripp, who's only four, uses a gay slur word that’s greeted with a response of hyena-like laughter from Bristol and her friend.

It’s bad, yes, but you can’t really blame the kid—he’s a toddler who doesn’t know any better. Besides, his sole parental example is out starting bar fights and throwing around those same slurs. The other mothers on this list should watch out—if Bristol keeps pulling shit like this, she’s going to give them a run for their money in the worst mothers ever awards. How that scene even made it onto the air is beyond us.
