Bristol Palin Was Almost Tina Fey’s Babysitter

Friday April 8, 2011

CVW 0019422 Bristol Palin Was Almost Tina Fey’s BabysitterBRISTOL Palin almost babysat Tina Fey’s child!

In her new book, Bossypants, Fey writes about Sarah Palin’s visit to SNL when the 30 Rock star was impersonating her.

Sarah apparently offered to have Bristol watch Tina’s daughter, Alice, while she made her Saturday Night Live appearance.

”I thanked her, saying Alice was too little to stay for the show,” said Fey.

“I can’t imagine Bristol would have been too psyched to do that anyway; it was her 18th birthday, she was in New York City, and I had made a vicious joke about her a week earlier. But I appreciated the mom-ness of Mrs. Palin’s offer.”

It was recently revealed that Bristol was paid $262,500 for advocating against teen pregnancy in 2009.

The Candie’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization that seeks to raise awareness of teen pregnancy and parenting issues, reported Bristol Palin’s earnings to the Internal Revenue Service.

“We know that Ms. Palin’s work has had a positive effect on creating awareness about teen pregnancy,” Ali Tyrangel, a spokeswoman for the foundation, said in a statement.

Tyrangel said an independent survey of 1,000 teens comparing Bristol Palin public-service announcements with those of another organization using non-famous teens found that the Palin spots were much more powerful and attention-getting.

“Bristol Palin has been a courageous and powerful partner to the Foundation as we attempt to discourage teen pregnancy,” she said.

Representatives for Candie’s and Bristol Palin could not immediately be reached for comment.

Bristol, then 18, was pregnant during the 2008 presidential campaign and her son was born in the month after the election. She and the boy’s father, Levi Johnston, had a much-publicized breakup.

CVW 0019422 Bristol Palin: $260,000 Paycheck For Bristol Palin For Advocating Against Teen PregnancyBRISTOL Palin really is raking in the big bucks!

The former Dancing With The Stars contestant and daughter of former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was paid $262,500 for advocating against teen pregnancy in 2009.

The Candie’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization that seeks to raise awareness of teen pregnancy and parenting issues, reported Bristol Palin’s earnings to the Internal Revenue Service.

Bristol, then 18, was pregnant during the 2008 presidential campaign and her son was born in the month after the election. She and the boy’s father, Levi Johnston, had a much-publicized breakup.

Bristol recently signed a book deal.

Publisher William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins, said the tome is an “intimate, behind-the-scenes look” at Bristol’s life.

The book will hit shelves later this year. The company declined to say how much the deal was worth.

“In [her book] Not Afraid of Life, Bristol gives readers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at her life for the first time, from growing up in Alaska to coming of age amid the media and political frenzy surrounding her mother’s political rise,” said the publisher in a statement.

Cynthia Stroum: 5 Facts on the Former Ambassador to Luxembourg Now Under Fire – AOL News

Gone but not forgotten.

The State Department issued a report on Cynthia Stroum, the former U.S. Ambassador to Luxembourg, that found that the diplomat and big time financial donor to President Barack Obama was so abrasive in her job that she drove her employees to seek posts in Afghanistan rather than continue working under her supervision.

Surge Desk rounds up a few facts about the woman whose “confrontational management style” was said to have reduced the Luxembourg embassy in a “state of dysfunction.”

1. She is a big time philanthropist
Apart from donating approximately $78,000 during the 2008 election cycle, Stroum is one of the founders of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. She has also served on the board of directors at the Shoah Foundation, Birthright Israel, and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

2. She knows how to invest her money
Shroud earned a considerable about of cash from well placed investments in Starbucks and Mosaix, Inc., according to the State Department’s website.

3. She has dabbled as a Broadway producer
Among her many activities, Shroud co-produced the Tony Award winning Broadway play “A Raisin in the Sun” in 2004.

4. She got the Luxembourg post because of her donations to Obama
As is the history with the ho-hum duties of being Luxemburg’s ambassador, this job is handed to an individual who brings in cash during a presidential campaign. According to Opensecrets.org, Stroum was a “bundler” who saw to it that a cool $500,000 made it into Obama’s coffers. That’s hardly anything new, however. As the website DiploPundint points out, of the 21 ambassadors appointed to Luxembourg by the U.S. over the last 50 years, only three had actual diplomatic experience.

5. She earned a degree in public relations
Though she apparently didn’t apply much of what she learned while in Luxembourg, Shroud earned a BA in Public Relations and Journalism from the University of Southern California.
