'Dancing With the Stars': Bristol Palin isn't discouraged by threats


For most people, the kind of attention Bristol Palin has received on "Dancing With the Stars" would make the finals a little bittersweet, but Palin remains unfazed by talk of conspiracy and even reports of threats against her and partner Mark Ballas.

Zap2it asked the finalist if any of the talk was getting her down, and she showed that stiff upper lip we've gotten quite used to seeing over the course of the 10-week season.

"I'm still happy to be here," says Palin. "That kind of stuff is just going to roll off my back."

Another thing she's happy for? Getting out of Los Angeles. Palin is Alaska-bound for Thanksgiving. "I'm excited to go see my family," says Palin, "be in the snow, go snow-machining and stuff like that."

Alaska, where "snow-machining" is a verb.
