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.

And we are supposed to feel sorry for Kyle and Bristol because they signed up to make millions being themselves on a reality show, and now they being exposed to look like the young fools they are, or atleast that Bristol is! This story was written, I am sure, to help increase interest in this dumb show.... I still won'*****ch it!

Oh poor Bristol!!! Her fake looking face at the young age of 21, saying Levi took advantage of her and got her prego, now she is doing a reality show and crying because it might be fake. Is anything every her fault? Look at her mom, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Bristol honey, learn to take some responsibiity for your ignorant mistakes.

Kyle Massey needs to get a clue. Of course the producers are spicing things up, the three of them are undoubtedly boring without producer intervention. Bristol doesn't have the evil charm that her icky mother has and no one cares about the Massey Bros.

Most people know it was a "set-up". Brisket knew about it, and was in on it, because she called the guy a "homosexual". If this was in ANYWAY real, Brisket would have called him a "***". That's how Brisket refers to the gay people, "****". Both Brisket and Sarah are whores: publicity whores.

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,

I am in a same sex relationship and I for one would vote for your Mother if she would just, "RUN SARAH RUN"! I am so sorry what happened to you and the person who shouted out those **********, let him be. He is dealing with issues of his own and he will reep what he through out. If he reads this and wants my true clam, cool and collective opinion he can call me at 904-233-4231. There are many gays for Sarah. In fact many people are holding back becasue she may make a difference in all of us - and we know people hate change.

You did not deserve the name calling and this was the first time I heard any person refer to your Mom in this manner.

Pray for them as they do not know what they do - again people in the closet will punch Sarah Palin for Pres of the United States and I will be one.

I know it is hard but walk away from these people - live your life and don't look back. God needs no defense and neither does your Mom.

Best Regards,

Mark

Let me get this straight, it's "okay" for this man to say horrible things to Bristol about her mother and so on and so forth, but it's not okay to call a guy out for being exactly what he is, a homosexual? The double standards rating is off the scale! What's sad is this man verbally attacked this young woman in a bar and all I hear is "OMG, she called him a homosexual." /facepalm

YES !. I knew it was a setup and so does anyone else with a brain. This guy Massey is trying to let Bristol off the hook but she was definitly in on it.

BUSTED !

I really hope that wasn't a setup. That's a horrible thing to do to Bristol Palin. This reality show was supposed to be about Bristol, Kyle and his brother, Chris, working on a charity together. They didn't sign up for the Jersey Shore. The poor girl was just out having a good time with her friends when that guy freaked out on her. As disturbing as it was, it's more disturbing to think that the producers set this up. I really hope it's not true. That would really suck.

People just dont get it. This was not a setup with bristol out of the loop. Watch her response to the heckler, she was totally ready for it. Why would the camera and security team let her run to this guy and confront him, watch her face how confident she is throughout the whole thing.

Whats happening now is that people are realizing this was a setup and they want to try to blame "somebody", "get rid of them" and continue with the show. The whole show was in on this. If you watch reality TV and like it you probably have no idea what you are watching. Its all carefully scripted. Everyone is a liar, everyone is in on the game. YOU are the chump watching and thinking that any of it is real.

No kidding it was staged. And I'm of the opinion TMZ is in on all of these staged reality show stories. Funny how TMZ was all over that story about the football player accusing Kim K of cheating - just as the new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was set to premiere - and since then we haven't heard a PEEP. Now we have this ridiculous scripted reality show mess and Harvey's on Twitter trying to garner more conversation about it...everyone's corrupt, everyone's a damn liar.

Bristol wasn't a participant? Are you kidding! She confronted the heckler, the way any decent Republican would, by accusing him of being a homosexual! She can't play the puppet and then scream that she's a puppet! And she had NO business being in that bar to begin with, since she's only 20. Trash grows up so fast these days!! LOL

Instead of relying on "Sources say" why don't you wait and get a quote directly from Kyle Massey?A simple internet search will get you video in which Kyle talks about signing on to a "reality show" (so there goes your "scripted show" rumor), that Bristol is a great roomate, that they bonded from Day 1 of DWTS, that Tripp is "his hero" and will be the star of the show, that the Palins are great and both families became fast friends. His twitter account shows the brothers having a blast filming in Alaska and he loved bringing Bristol and Tripp to Disney last month (posted photos as evidence). So who should we believe "sources" from TMZ or video/photos posted by Kyle?

Speaking of "sources"... when will TMZ post the vile, ugly, sexist twitter ramblings of Mr. Hanks that posters have sent to you?Included in those tweets are nasty sexist remarks ...but that's ok because they're against women with a different political view. And what about his remark to the Big Hollywood reporter..."How's your boyfriend Andrew?" which could be considered a homophobic taunt. Hmmm?

When will TMZ print the actual transcript of what was said during the video including his taunt about Glen Rice that could be considered racist if I wanted to play that game. This man is no poster boy for tolerance, civility, and human rights. Those who are jumping in to throw out the same ole Palin bashing with a dose of ugly digs at Bristol are just proving the point that you can not defend your position with facts so rely on slinging dirt. For those of you who defended Bristol against this sad man despite your politics, lifestyle, or whatever...BRAVO!
Peace.
