Ludicrous!

Yesterday I was watching the news and I heard something that I thought was crazy. Bristol Palin is coming to Washington University in St. Louis in a few months to talk to the students about abstinence and teen pregnancy. Although I don't think she's the best person to speak on that topic, the thing that really irritated me was that she's getting paid $20,000 for her services. I can understand her getting paid for airfare and other travel expenses, but $20,000 is just outrageous!

Does anyone else think this is crazy?!

OH man. And guess what- she just moved down the street from my mom. Haha. My mom was joking around about starting a reality show with her: Bristol and Crystal take on Arizona hahahaha

Hi Heather,

How are you? Checking in to say hello. Still follow your blog religiously. My new blog www.thatsentertainment.org goes live on Tuesday, February 1. Check it out. I think you would have fun. I know you love movies. I also have a facebook page for That's Entertainment. There is some fun quizzes on there.

Yes, it is crazy! but just to clarify...the student union has money to do things, like bring in speakers, etc. So they were the ones who sponsored it...not really WashU. No WU money was spent on that - just the students.

YOu're pretty puffed up with your own importance if you charge $20,000 for one presentation, no matter who you are or who is paying!
