Bristol Palin is tired of people saying she's a gay hater. Before she competes on the upcoming "All-Stars" edition of "Dancing with the Stars", the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin clarifies widely-believed reports that she loathed homosexuals.

"I like gays. I'm not a homophobic and I'm so sick of people saying that," the single mother explains at ABC's Television Critics Association panel. "Just because I'm for traditional marriage doesn't mean I'm scared or anything of anyone else. And I don't hate anybody."

"People are gonna make up stuff about me no matter what. And whatever. I'm gonna go dance and I'm gonna have fun," she continues. "It's not about politics. It's not about traditional marriage or anything like that. It's about dancing. That's all I have to say about it."

Explaining her decision to do reality TV shows, she says, "I just think that you guys will talk about us (my family) either way and I might as well be doing something enjoyable and fun and with a good group of people, and that's why I'm doing it."

Bristol will return to the "DWTS" ballroom along with Joey Fatone, Melissa Rycroft, Pamela Anderson, Kirstie Alley, Drew Lachey and Shawn Johnson among other previous contestants. "I was ecstatic," the 2010 "DWTS" third-place finisher gushes on her blog.

"I called my mom right after our conversation and told her the offer I had gotten," she remembers. "I was totally brought to tears just thinking about the last few years of my life, and how abundantly blessed I am to have such amazing opportunities."

I love how she's just "for traditional marriage" as opposed to against gay people having the right to get married. Traditional marriage is not under attack despite what these crack pots say.

Horrible harpy, following in her trashy mother's bloodsoaked footprints. They're the world's worst family.

I like how people continue to believe the Palins have any relevant thought on any subject. Hilarious.

I like how Bristol is for traditional marriage, yet she broke a major covenant of her faith by having premarital sex. She can go ahead and have sex and get pregnant before marriage, but gays shouldn't marry. Can you say hypocritical?
