Bristol Palin Gives Tour of Maricopa Home to E!

If your last name's Palin, it's apparently mandatory to turn every mundane thing you do into some sort of televised event. For example, buying a home in Arizona.

Tonight on E!, Palin will give a tour of her new diggs to host Guiliana Rancic, as she and her son, Tripp, discuss a collection of mind-numbing topics like her new Italian boyfriend, and what it's like to be in a long-distance relationship.


Palin, as you may recall, bought a house in Maricopa last year, and has since shown interest in a publicity stunt job offer from a Phoenix radio station.

Clear Channel's Phoenix-based Mix 96.9 (KMXP-FM) offered Palin an on-air job earlier this month. At the time, the station's director, Ron Price, insisted it wasn't a publicity stunt.

"It is an official offer to a very well-known personality, who may be looking for a new career in what will most likely be her new home state," Price said at the time.

Palin was on the Bob & Mark Show, on an Anchorage radio station a few weeks later and called Price's bluff. She now says she's actually planning to pursue the gig.

"I'm working on a few different projects," she said. About the KMXP job, she added, "I'm going to meet with them and see if it's actually legitimate and see if I would like the guy I would be on air with."

If you're dying to know what the inside of Bristol Palin's house looks like, you can check it out tonight on E! at 7 p.m. and again at 11:30 p.m. Or you could always just stick hot pokers into your eyeballs, whichever you prefer.
