Red Alert at 'DWTS' Finale -- Release the Hounds!

11/23/2010 10:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Dancing with the Stars" is taking security to a ridiculous level tonight for the big finale -- TMZ has learned ... they've amped up personnel, given Bristol her own bodyguard, and are even using bomb-sniffing dogs.

Dancing With the Stars

Here's how it breaks down -- sources tell TMZ, in addition to Bristol's personal security, there will be 2 bomb-sniffing K-9 units and 12 undercover guards ... some LAPD, some private security ... all armed.

We're told it's the first time they've had this much firepower on set -- and it makes sense ... because as we first reported, Bristol and Mark Ballas have received several death threats ... and if that wasn't enough ... we're told Mama Palin herself is expected to show up.

It's gonna be crazy.

#6 - hysterical and true. I don't believe a word of this death threat stuff. However, it's not beyond ABC to make this crap up in the interest of ratings and keeping a show with the 18-49 death knell tolling in the press. And TMZ eats it up.

What mom would let their child go through this....and encourage them on.
oh yeah a mom that think teen pregnancy is okay......hence now i hear the other one is pregnant too.
Must be wonderful to have the money to leave your children at home with someone else....the rest of us have to take care of ours. (what a concept)
Oh back to Bristol.....and Mark, she really has not improved that much....Mark is just dressing her like a call girl and dancing fancy around her. Her supposed shyness.....has given way to suduction........ooooh.

Would love to see the IQ of each of the people in this family. Willow thinks they are famous, lolllllllllll they are trailer trash. Bristol is so big she doesn't need a body guard.Hefty mom ma...maybe now she'll go home and take care of her baby.

Palin will probably show up. After all, she thinks Bristol's appearance is all about her anyway and you you know she can't atay away from any sort of self-promotion - even if it puts her daughter and innocents' saftey at risk. SHE IS MORE IMPORTANT (in her own deluded little mind).

I really do hope Bristol can one day find a way our from under the mother's controlling passive-aggresive thumb. She should be happy some time in her life.

Given that a Palinite has admitted to hacking the system to give 300 votes to Bristol just by herself, are we to assume they will up the security in this regard as well? Doesn't sound like it.

Cracking up that so many take this all so seriously! Not just DWTS, but reality TV, celebrity gossip, or even life in general.

Try to have fun, people! Life is short and it's not that serious!

Bristol Palin's cage dance was ridiculous. Basically two people chasing each other around with a scarf? That's dancing? It looked like a playground rumble.
