Bristol Palin To Get ‘Sexy’ On ‘Dancing’

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- For several weeks, Bristol Palin has been told by the “Dancing with the Stars” judges that she needs to amp up her acting performance in the ballroom. After being left hanging until the final moment before she learned she and partner Mark Ballas were saved on Tuesday night, the teen activist is now ready to heed that advice.
Bristol admitted that she and Mark will perform the rumba next week and that she plans to channel her saucy side.
“I gotta find a sexy bone in my body and learn how to be sexy,” she told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson after the “DWTS” Results Show.
Mark thinks the single mom absolutely has what it takes to jump on board the sexy train.
“Next week is going to be sexy,” he chimed in.
“What will your mom say when you start [getting] real sexy?” Shaun asked.
“It was her idea,” Mark said.
“Yeah, no, she knows I need to get into character,” Bristol said. “She is encouraging me, telling me that I need to be more of a character and exaggerate [it all] and to just have a good time.”
The politician’s daughter says that after her near-escape from elimination on Tuesday night, she’s now much more motivated to move forward in the competition and really give it her all.
“It sucks, it’s a terrible feeling I feel like a punch in the stomach,” she said of being the last couple to learn they were saved on Tuesday. “Hopefully though, this will give me more motivation to perform well next week.”
Bristol also reacted to the news that her mom’s former Presidential running mate, John McCain, is actually pulling for his hometown hero – former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner – instead of her.
“Yeah, I haven’t talked to him recently, so…” Bristol said, shrugging off the news.
