Well, this is troubling.

Courtesy of TMZ:

It’s true what they say … the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree ’cause Bristol Palin’s son has officially gone Hollywood.

Bristol’s 9-year-old son, Tripp, will make his reality TV debut on “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors” and he’s in line to bring in a boat load of money if his rhythm’s on point … this according to his minor’s contract, obtained by TMZ.

Just like Honey Boo Boo and Scottie Pippen’s kid … Tripp will get paid $50k just for signing up to do the show. He can make a ton of cash if he survives and up to $130k total if he makes it to the finale. BTW … Stevie Wonder’s son, Mandla Morris, is also joining the cast. The kid’s got music in his blood, so watch out.

For all her railing against the Hollywood elite, it seems Sarah Palin’s daughter and grandson sure love the dough and attention that’s gonna come with it.

To be fair to Tripp, which kid would reject a chance to make $130,000 bucks? 

It is just too bad that Bristol is bringing him along down the same sad path that she chose for herself. 

Sure you make a bunch of money, but what these reality stars lose in exchange for that dough is fairly significant. 

And yes the rumors that Levi and Sunny are also making an appearance of some kind in Bristol’s new show “Teen Mom OG” seem to be true as well. 

I guess it’s true that everybody has a price.
