It was a few years ago. I don't watch Reality TV, but I saw the commercials for it. She was just another Snooki.

I know her daughter was....I just do not believe anything to do with her resigning from office was ever a reality program.

I do think it was more about aborting her legal troubles to come regarding unethical behavior as the governor.

Then you will be able to find links.....I'll wait.

I hope you are not thinking about the outdoor show on TLC.

Sarah Palin's Alaska - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This was the best part.

At the conclusion of the series, long time Alaska resident and author Nick Jans commented that the show made clear Palin's actual unfamiliarity with the outdoor Alaskan lifestyle, observing that most of the supposed adventures on which Palin and her family embarked were "guided trips aimed at mass market tourists ... requiring no skills beyond a pulse and the ability to open your wallet".

I would have to disagree with that.

Years back my husband was hunting with Todd....and yes it was though an outfitter....but, that does not make it anywhere near a tourists trip.

My husband had a hunting accident....Todd was kind enough to not finish his hunt and ride in the helicopter with my husband to the hospital.

Sarah was kind enough to check on my husband and call me every day until I got up there.

BTW....what an outfitter does is handle getting any licenses needed....provide lodging and food......some transportation.

They do not guarantee safety......hunting is not for the weak.

Sarah and Todd Palin were kind to your husband and you and that speaks well of them.

Not to disparage your husband's experience, but going out with outfitters and fishing guides is what tourists do in Alaska.

I did see several segments of Ms. Palin's show as I lived in Alaska for a number of years and always enjoy seeing the place. It was clear that Ms. Palin was not used to shooting a rifle. Later, someone said that the sight was off not her aim. That could have been the problem. But she put her finger on the trigger right after someone handed her the rifle, always a poor idea, and asked silly questions like, "Does it kick?"
