The Word: Three’s company, Bristol Palin style

Bristol Palin.

Here’s a scenario I imagine would outrage most Republicans: A 20-year-old single mother decides that what’s best for her — and her 2-year-old toddler — is to move in with two men she’s not related to and barely knows. In L.A.

Yet, that’s the exact premise of Bristol Palin’s new reality TV show. The still-unnamed series follows her move from Alaska to Los Angeles with her son, Tripp, to work at a small charity while living with her former “Dancing with the Stars” co-star Kyle Massey,  19, and his 21-year-old brother, Chris (Sarah Palin must be courting the ever-growing “Last Season’s Reality TV Star” demographic). It will air on BIO later this year.

If they get rid of Palin, the Masseys might have a hit on their hands: “Two Black Men and a Republican Baby.” They’d just need to check in with the Wayans brothers to make sure they don’t have that idea already in development.

Whitney is back in rehab
