    Mama Grizzly made Bristol Palin compete on "Dancing with The Stars," according to Margaret Cho, who had a shorter run on the show but made friends with the teen mom from Alaska.

    In a blog post titled “Pistol Whipped,” Cho revealed that she and the younger Palin became friends on the show and then the comic said Palin was only there because her mom put her up to it.

    “Why did Bristol do Dancing With the Stars? I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) that the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it,” Cho wrote.

    Cho says Sarah Palin blames Bristol, whose pregnancy came out during the campaign, for the fact that she and John McCain lost to President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in the 2008 election. The self-described "pitbull with lipstick" supposedly told Bristol she owed it to her to do the show and help rebuild the family image for a 2012 run.

    Cho then joked about her revelation bringing down the wrath of Sarah.

    "Now I am scared I am going to wake up with a decapitated moose head in my bed,” Cho joked.
