'Dancing' Studio on Red Sarah Palin Alert

9/20/2010 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There will be high security tonight when Sarah Palin shows up to watch daughter Bristol perform on "Dancing with the Stars" ... TMZ has learned.

0920_sarah_DWTS_EX_TMZ_01

Our spies say security guards at CBS Television City in L.A.  -- the place where "Dancing" is broadcast -- is on "heightened alert."  Although Palin is not officially running for anything, security is treating her like a government official.

TMZ broke the story ... Sarah will be front and center tonight when Bristol dances to "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)" with partner Mark Ballas.

Guards have been told to be especially vigilant with anyone entering the lot. 

Our sources say security will decide which vehicles to thoroughly search -- though not every car will get the once-over.

As for audience members who are attending the show ... we're told their bags will be searched and a metal detector is always there.

And this is the best -- security has been told if there is a breach ... Sarah is a "higher priority than Bristol."

I am so pissed at DWTS, the last thing I want to see is Sarah Palin. I avoid her like the plague. Now I have to avoid DWTS like the plague. She is ruining politics, the country, and now my Shows!! Grosss..... nowhere to hide.

Why are there so many morons responding to this article? I have seen many comments about tax payers paying for this security. It's a television show. The network and show has decided to treat Palin's attendance as they would with any high profile person. No one is saying she is a government official. They are saying she is high profile and like her or not, she is high profile. The fact that TMZ writes about her just attending the show is proof.

This a family full of attention whores. Bristol has taken having an illegitimate baby and parlayed it into a road show. Too bad every out of wedlock mom can't do that. Go sit down ho.

The one thing I just can't reconicile is that you Christian Right Wing bigots can't bear the thought of a black man as the President of the United States, but the Palins would be just fine. I'd rather have the fre@king Clampett family in the White House than those bunch of white trash hillbillies.

And don't forget that Sarah Palin was a SOCIALIST governor of Alaska. She took millions of oil profits and divided the money amongst every man, woman AND child in Alaska.

How do you teapartiers square that with all of the hate for Obama's supposed socialism? You're all carrying idiot signs about his marxism, socialism, and muslim ways, but Palin is the true socialist. And yet you worship her as your savior.

Wake up people. She is a moneymaker and cares nothing about your plight or the economy. I hope they repeal those tax rates for the rich and make HER pay.

And I'm done with DWTS - really, is Bristol a celebrity? Yuck.

You can always tell when someone is insecure and slightly deranged. They become paranoid and delusional.... which seems to be the reaction to a mother coming to support her daughter in a dancing competition.
I guess if one of Obama's girls was competing, the reaction would be the same? I know one thing for sure, the audience would be screened with questionaires, security clearances, etc. and Secret Service would surround the Obamas. And they would be spending taxpayer money... in Sarah's case, the show pays the money.
So, all you liberal haters and left wing wackos and just useless human beings...
You would better to spend you time supporting Coons in Masturbating for Delaware as Jimmy Kimmel says... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7VrMzm6hDE

Bristol would NOT be doin this without Sarahs okay, its a win/win and obvious for both. It's a real shame those writer went on strike several years back, because that was the birth of reality tv and look at what it has turned into, a nice dancin family show, filled with regets and many who never were stars. Garbage now, jsut like American Idol.

OMG    

HONESTLY........The Palin Family have no class and no respect for FAMILY. They have made SPECTACLES OF THEMSELVES AND THE TOWN THAT THEY CAME FROM. IT WOULD BE A JOKE IF THEY EVER GOT INTO THE WHITE HOUSE. DO WE REALLY WANT A REALITY SHOW OF THE CLOWN FAMILY IN THE WHITE HOUSE???? THEY HAVE NO RESPECT FOR POLITICS OR FAMILY VALUES. THE ARE MEDIA WHORES AND ARE REALLY SICK PEOPLE.

Who cares what Margaret Cho has to say about anything? She's a middle aged woman who hasn't done much with her "career".

Sarah Palin rocks! She is a super-hottie. Bristol is pretty, too. She will kick DWTS ratings into the stratosphere. It's Palin Power!
