(CNN) - The day Bristol Palin fans have been waiting for has finally arrived: ABC has released a clip of her acting debut on the small screen.

Palin is playing herself on the ABC Family show "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," set to air later this summer. According to the network, Palin plays a friend of the show's main character, Amy. The show has recently focused on how Amy reacts to an unexpected pregnancy.

Palin, the 19-year old daughter of Sarah Palin, gave birth to her son Tripp in December 2008.

    Huh. Does this qualify as the press exploiting Sarah's children?

    Two important questions:

    (1) Bristol Palin has fans?

    (2) ABC Family has viewers?

    She's obviously not a Republican since they say "No." She didn't and now is a single mother. More like "no" shame.

    Just goes to show you: 95% of success in life is whose genitals you came out of. Good for her. She's a complete retard, but leveraging her unwanted teenage pregnancy and the fact that you're a nasty, robot d-bag politician's child to get her foot in hollywood's door certainly shows that she has acting talent...and maybe even indicates that she should start singing and dancing and wearing camel-toe jeans while making some MTV videos to compete with Lady Garbage.

    Just a thought – I am angrier at the media because they continue to bombard us with stupid stories about the stupid palin family.
    This daughter's story should be in the entertainment section as it has to do with TV and nothing to do with politics. Just because her retarded mother was a badly vetted vp candidate and couldn't finish any job she has ever had is no excuse.
    Both of them should be in the "watercooler" section if at all.
    WHO CARES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????
    An unwed teenager. Dime a dozen. She is not anyone I would want my daughter to listen to. Little AK ho that she is!

    Wonder if she will "ACT" like she and Levi are NOT living together?

    Ha Ha.. this family is just raking it in!!! I think we need a reality show called "Living it up with the Palins". The sexual teenager who's mom promotes abstinence... The father who wants to Alaska to be its own country, but snow mobiles on the side.. and the special needs child who gets raised by his siblings instead of the ambitious and greedy mom!!

    Is there no end to this madness? Obviously she would never have this part if it wasn't for mommy dearest pushing in the background to keep the Palin name in the news and in the public's eye 24/7. By the way, didn't Bristal just start a consulting firm for mommy's PAC? Or at least is was started in her name by, gee I wonder who. Exactly what does a 19 year old know about consulting a political PAC? Really folks, Really?!?

    Vote No in NOvember to the party of NO.

    just another sociopath like her mother....

    i don't believe that most teen moms want to become famous for their pregnancy....

    most adult women who feel victimized don't make a career out of whining and finger pointing

    i think they both need psychological counseling.
