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.

After Bristol's and her sister Willow's homophobic rants on Facebook last week, it is the viewers--all of America--who should be afraid of them! I thought this sort of behavior, including bullying, was illegal now. Those two twits should have been arrested.

Wood Eye    

Some nutty tea partier sent the powder to create "sympathy" for the chubby non-star. She looks PREGNANT--her stomach is sticking WAY out. Is that Mark's bun in the oven, some key grip's or stagehand's, or what? She is way too young to have a belly that big, and she's put on fifteen or more pounds in the past six weeks. She should have had that blue tango outfit re-fitted, it was WAY too tight. And if she keeps eating, she'll have more chins that the Beijing phone book....

I love TMZ!    

Jennifer and Derek deserve to win, and I really don't think anyone 'hates' Bristol Palin over the dance contest. It's obvious the girl does not deserve to have gone as far as she has and it's due to the tea party calling in for her, which is causing the controversy and it's cheating. I don't believe in violence over something so petty, but I will NEVER watch DWTS if Miss Palin wins. She doesn't deserve it.

I just hope DWTS is paying for all of this useless security and not the taxpayers.

Bristol still can't dance this has been ashamed that ABC has let this go on. There has been far better dancers sent home. I will never watch this show again. Bristol and her uneducated mother need to go back to Alaska and take care of there children, after they take parenting classes, because we see how Bristol turned out.

Fayne Korb this is a reality dance show that others voted for Bristol to be in the final and the Tea Party has nothing to do with it.

Let us get this because you are upset Bristol is in the finals YOU call her and her college educated mother in need of parenting classes. This is a dance show and people like Kate Gosselin, Brandy (who killed a mother).... are fine.

This is a reality dance show. Who cares if bristol wins or gets third. It seems so important to you?

Good point Brenda! At least Audrina Patride and The Situation were on actual TV shows - awful though they were.
