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 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.

Your talking apples and oranges. Being homosexual make the man mentally ill?????? And even if he was what right does Bristol have to call him out on it.

Here's an example for you. Someone walks up to Bristol and says "your brother is mentally retarded, isn't he" in the same tone Bristol used. The whole family would be in a uproar.

Sociopaths are Sad    

1. I absolutely believe Kyle Massey that the sleazy reality producers scripted the whole thing. Reality TV producers are some of the WORST of the bunch. They even take their wives to Mexico and have them "accidentally die" when they get sick of them. Disgusting vermin.
*
2. I absolutely believe that Bristol Palin had nothing to do with it. Simply because of the homophobic slur she SNARLED at the gay man. Bristol would NEVER agree to a setup where she would hurl a homophobic slur like that. Especially not with Sarah being so anti-gay and Willow having hurled a homophobic slur of her own. There is no way.
*
3. I absolutely believe the gay man was in on it. He was most likely paid and did it for publicity as well (which could generate future income).
*
4. Good for Kyle Massey for speaking up. Who is he again? Doesn't matter. He is now known as the guy who stood up to the sleazy producers of Bristol's reality show and injected himself into the mix. Bravo Kyle. Well played. Since most people loathe reality producers, Kyle's stock with the scripted producers just went up and maybe NOW he will get something. Way to play the Hollywood game Kyle. And I'm not even being sarcastic. You have to play the game to get ahead. And this is actually a pretty moral way of playing it.

Correct. That does in fact make him mentally ill. So it's not about apples and oranges, it's about drawing a parallel between two abnormal behaviors to illustrate a point. Get it?

Now the example you used, I agree, the family would be in an uproar about that. But let's expand on your example. Bristol had previously walked up to that same person before they made a comment about her brother having down syndrome and she said "hey, your mother is a whore." I'm just taking a guess here, but I'm betting they would temper down any such "uproar" about the person making a comment about her brother having down syndrome, given that Bristol was the one that egged it on for no apparent reason. Wise up!

Shouldn't she be at home raising her kid? Kid is being raised without a father and a mother. She choose to have the kid, now be a mom instead of trying to be famous with a realty show.

According to her own religion a whore is someone who has sex BEFORE marriage. Therefore his comment was dead on and stings sooo badly because its truth for at least 2 family members in the same house. While more than likely set up its still very true.
