Why Is Bristol Palin Shacking Up With DWTS Cohort?

You knew it was coming.

After testing the waters of the entertainment world with a surprising third-place finish on season 11's Dancing With the Stars and an ongoing stint on Mama Grizzly Sarah Palin's A&E program, Sarah Palin's Alaska, Bristol Palin is finally getting a reality series to call her own.

So just what does Kyle Massey have to do with it?

E! News can confirm that Palin will costar in a new show for A&E's sister network, Bio Channel, that will reteam the 20-year-old single mom with the 19-year-old Disney Channel star, whom she befriended while the two competed on DTWS.

Perhaps this explains Palin's newly slimmed-down look, which has sparked rumors of plastic surgery?

The premise of the show is pretty simple: Bristol moves with her 2-year-old son, Tripp, from Arizona—where she recently bought her first home (and gave E! News the grand tour)—to L.A., where she'll purportedly work at a small charity while living with Massey, who bested her for second place on Dancing, and his 21-year-old brother, Chris.

"Bristol is the kind of personality Bio is drawn to," David McKillop, executive vice president of programming for A&E and Bio said. "Her personal life has been playing out in the media for several years, but this will be the first time she's opening up her real life, with her son and her friends the Massey brothers."

We wonder what former fiancé and baby daddy Levi Johnston has to say about that?!

In any case, the oh-so exciting results will play out in 10 half-hour episodes that will premiere on Bio sometime later this year—and quite possibly when the elder Palin may be in the midst of a presidential campaign...that is, if the former half-term governor ever decides to run.
