Bristol Palin Was Almost Tina Fey’s Babysitter, For A Night

Tina Fey wrote about Sarah Palin’s visit to SNL when she was impersonating her, in her new book Bossypants.

Sarah apparently offered her daughter Bristol to watch Tina’s daughter, Alice, while she made her SNL appearance.

”I thanked her, saying Alice was too little to stay for the show,” said Fey.

“I can’t imagine Bristol would have been too psyched to do that anyway; it was her 18th birthday, she was in New York City, and I had made a vicious joke about her a week earlier. But I appreciated the mom-ness of Mrs. Palin’s offer.”

Speaking of “mom-ness,” Bristol advocated against teen pregnancy in 2009 getting paid $262,500 for the advocacy.

The Candie’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization that seeks to raise awareness of teen pregnancy and parenting issues, reported Bristol’s earnings to the Internal Revenue Service.

“We know that Ms. Palin’s work has had a positive effect on creating awareness about teen pregnancy,” Ali Tyrangel, a spokeswoman for the foundation, said in a statement.

Those service announcements were getting a whole lotta attention becoming more powerful than using non-famous teens, at least according to Tyrangel.

“Bristol Palin has been a courageous and powerful partner to the Foundation as we attempt to discourage teen pregnancy,” she said.

Representatives for Candie’s and Bristol Palin could not immediately be reached for comment.
