    Sarah Palin's daughter has stepped out of the spotlight and back to her sheltered Wasilla homefront, following a big "turning point" which she said came about after her notorious spat with a heckler while she was shooting a reality show last September, according to In Touch.

    "I wasn't really into the Hollywood thing," Bristol told the mag. "After that, I just realized that I was over it. I was ready to come home."

    But that wasn't the only reason Bristol packed up her bags.

    The 21-year-old mom, who now lives in an apartment under her mom's TV studio, said she was also concerned about her 3-year-old son, Tripp's, welfare.

    "He's going to be starting preschool soon, so we needed to settle into a routine," Bristol continued. 

    And Tripp's grandmother is happy to have them both back home.

    "It's great having Bristol here," Sarah told the mag. "She makes good decisions, and she's always thinking long-term about her and Tripp's future."

    So, tell us...what do you think of Bristol's move? Do you think she has really ditched Hollywood for good? Sound off in the comments!
