Bristol Palin scared on 'Dancing With the Stars,' bans Levi Johnston from set




Dancing With the Stars fans have long enjoyed the schadenfreude of cackling about the failings of the show's contestants, so titter away at the news that Bristol Palin seems especially prone to suffer from two left feet. It's not like the girl was a big-name Vegas showgirl or anything.

"Bristol is terrified," a source told Us about the 19-year-old's rehearsals with partner Mark Ballas. Sarah Palin's daughter "isn't naturally outgoing and doesn't have any performing background. ... Mark told her, 'Just stop and breathe,' in rehearsal, because she was so stiff."

"The last thing in the world Bristol wants is to look up from her cha-cha-cha and see his big goofy grin looking at her," a family friend told Shuter. "This is her time to shine and she doesn't want him trying to steal her spotlight."

So she can't dance, has no stage background and doesn't want people to watch her. Why is she on the show at all?
