Mark Ballas on Bristol Palin: What, Me Worry?

9/11/2010 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Some of Mark Ballas' comrades on "Dancing with the Stars" tell TMZ ... Marky Mark has been grousing that his partner, Bristol Palin, has been missing so many practices that his performance with her could be downright embarrassing.


Our sources tell us Mark canceled Monday's rehearsal because of a party for his mother.  But Bristol canceled Tuesday because she had committed to giving a speech.  And Bristol canceled Wednesday because her son, Tripp, was ill.  And she was only able to practice a half day on Thursday.

Some members of the cast tell us ... Mark is worried the newbie just won't cut it when the show premieres a week from Monday.

But there's another side to this story ... sources connected with the show tell us Mark was really happy with Bristol's progress on Friday and they will be practicing the entire weekend and every day next week until the first live TV show.

On the bright side, if Bristol falls flat, she could get appointed to some position in Wasilla.

Double standards. Brandy was an unmarried mother except she LIED about being married for PR. Brandy killed someone in a car accident and LIED about the details. Why all the hate for Bristol?

amazing how the palin name can make the obama koolaid drinkers head spin around at the mere mention of the name. never has even someone as corrupt as hillary will cause liberals to even give her a second thought. but put a smart independent woman like palin up that says what she thinks and not what her teleprompter tells her.

and now her daughter wants to be on a tv show and the gossip world and hollywood is all in a snit.

it's a tv show - who cares why someone is on it or not.

Bristol Palin was working as the manager of a doctor's office in her hometown. DWTS called HER. She didn't call them. They texted her at work and asked if she would be on the show. She will earn a boatload of money doing even a few of the episodes of the show. She is working full time to support her child. Levi Johnston has to have cash pried out of his hands by the court to support the child.

Which one of you would turn down an offer of hundreds of thousands of dollars, and all you have to do is learn to dance and be on a show?

She is a hard working young woman. She finished her GED, and has been working on earning a college degree, while working as manager of a doctor's office and taking care of her child. She lives on her own, in her own condo, not with her parents.

TMZ we already know is staffed and owned by extreme liberals and homosexuals. They hate God, country, and anything that hints of the good. They thrive on sarcasm and hate, like most liberals I read.

Damn, do you all have to comment about someone you haven't even seen perform yet? I would love to see you raise a child with crazy family like hers and stupid BD like that ignorant Levi, and still stay out of psych ward. She did it! She might be in this for wrong reasons to your all eyes, but she is young and has a son, we all do what we do for our kids, why is it so wrong for her? She was asked to dance and make couple bucks for it, who cares, I can bet all you do more then she do.
