| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

Just like her famous mom, Bristol Palin is becoming something of a media star. She has just been cast as a guest star on ABC Family's "The Secret Life of the American Teen." Her first acting gig should be an easy one to pull off -- Bristol will portray herself.

In the story, Bristol will become friends with another character whom she meets at a music program for teen moms. 19-year-old Bristol said in a statement:

“I am thrilled to be on this show and to be a part of a program that educates teens and young adults about he consequences of teen pregnancy.” 

“Bristol Palin is the most famous teenage mother in America,” says the show’s executive producer, Brenda Hampton. “I think she will bring additional attention to the issues facing teen parents that we’ve been exploring for a couple of seasons now.”

The episode will be filmed in Los Angeles and be shown this summer during the series’ third season.
