Bristol Palin is set to make her acting debut playing herself on ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teen.
The series, which takes a more conservative view of teen pregnancy, is the perfect fit for the teen mom. After all, as executive producer Brenda Hampton pointed out, "Bristol Palin is the most famous teenage mother in America."
Bristol herself says, "I am thrilled to be on this show and to be a part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy," in a statement to Us.
We're sure she'll be brillz at playing herself, but is the 19-year-old, who's currently in a custody dispute with her baby daddy Levi Johnstone, really the best role model?
