Kyle Massey

Thinks Bristol Palin 'Fight'

Was a Setup

Bristol Palin's run-in with a heckler was set up by the producer's of her reality show -- at least that's what her co-star Kyle Massey thinks ... this according to sources close to Massey.

Palin got into it with a guy named Stephen Hanks at a bar on the Sunset Strip Thursday night. Hanks told us it was NOT a setup, but we're told Massey doesn't buy it.

According to our sources, Massey -- who is starring with Bristol in a reality show for the BIO Channel -- feels it was a little too convenient that so many cameras were there to catch the confrontation.

Our sources say Massey feels the producers of the show were behind it all, but that Bristol had NO part in it. We're told Kyle feels that Bristol would never have agreed to something like that and that Bristol has been nothing but genuine and honest with Kyle so far.

According to our sources, Massey is not happy with the direction the show has taken. We're told Massey feels the show is now "sleazy" and thought he was signing on for a scripted show ... and not a reality show.

A source close to the show tells us the show did NOT set up the incident and that producers would never put Bristol in that position.

i dunno. seems like with mom running for something , we don't know what yet, Bristol should just be a good girl and keep her nose clean. The health benefits alone of a Federal employee should be enough to keep her mouth shut.. JUst a gentle reminder

Fake reality on a reality show? I'm sure that NEVER happens.

Bottom line - Bristol once again proves herself to be homophobic. Seems it wasn't to long ago that Bristol and her sister were involved in a FaceBook incident in which they were both calling a kid "gay" and "***" because he didn't like their Mother's show. The whole Palin Clan are Alaskan redneck hillbillies.

I don't think Bristol pointing out the obvious means that she has a fear of homosexuals. It would be like walking outside of the grocery store and noticing a man talking to his dog that isn't there. One would probably come to the conclusion that the person is most-likely a schizophrenic. Same type of situation here, Bristol recognized that the man is mentally ill.


Obviously the man is deeply ashamed of his homosexual behavior given the way he drastically displayed his insecurity by calling a young woman's mother a whore. It smells of desperation and is pathetic. What a sorry excuse for a human being.


Also TMZ, you really need to lay off the whole homosexual push you guys have been making over the past couple of months. I think you reached critical mass when you posted about a girl eating at Chik-fil-a and questioning whether she had a fear of homosexuals. You're trying way to hard Harvey and it's pathetic. THZ - The Homosexual Zone.

She's baaaack    

I wouldn't put it past her but in this case I'd call a no on it. He was too drunk and she was too quick on the homophobic call-out. I doubt it was set up or it would have gone a lot smoother, without the whore and gay stuff. After all the Palins don't like bad press.

I'm pretty sure it was staged.. I was there a few hours talking with the guy. He's a regular (even has has name plate reserving his seat at the bar!) He said he knew Bristol was coming in and intended to say something to her.

Could Kyle Massey be "leaking" out this statement to draw more attention to the show which I wouldn'*****ch even if I had that channel?

Her mom is in the public eye and by default so is she. Hell she is FILMING a tv show that said regardless if it was a set up or not she showed her true hate and bigoted self. She is a disgrace. GO back to your igloo. trash bag...

Breaking news: Kyle Massey fired from Bristol Palin reality show. Biting the hand that feeds you never a good idea unless of course you don't want fed.

The absolute foremost reason I dislike reality programming -- It's all scripted. Producers tend to fu*k up the best plans for entertainment reasons.

I believe Kyle is 100% right. If you do a google search on Hanks it shows his twitter is 95% about attacking the Palins to a disgusting extent. His twitter name is even about the Palins. This isnt new. It has been there long before this incident. The guys nastiness is endless. I think it was a setup by the producers. I feel bad for Bristol. Nobody wants to here their mom called a whore. Bristol wasnt homophobic. She asked him if he hates her mom because he is a homosexual. He was a homosexual and he said yes that is why I hate your mom.

Faker than fake. What are they gonna say "Ya, we set it all up for you guys to eat it up?" It was set up by somebody. Funny, Levi has a book out now too. Go buy it. Sarcasm. The guy is in the industry. No. Wouldn't be set up at all. I can't stand Palin and I'm not a homosexual. But this was cheesy as hell.
