Bristol Palin's Acting Debut Coming On 'Secret Life Of The American Teenager'

Teen mom Bristol Palin, daughter of 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, will play herself on an upcoming episode of ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager, ABC-TV says.

According to the network, she will be "a friend to the show's protagonist, Amy, at a music program for teen mothers."

Bristol is now 19. She was thrust into the national spotlight when her mother joined the GOP ticket, making Bristol's pregnancy a topic of considerable conversation. At the time, she was the subject of much talk among her fellow teens, as All Things Considered reported.
