Is America's plague of Palins finally ending? After approximately one year of Hollywood fameseeking—starting with a stint on Dancing with the Stars and ending with a new face, a bar brawl, and a canceled reality show—America's most successful unsuccessful abstinence advocate Bristol Palin is returning to Alaska. She explained herself to In Touch:

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

"He's [Tripp] going to be starting preschool soon, so we needed to settle into a routine," she explains.

With Bristol's star waning and Todd's fully extinguished, has America finally rid itself of the Palins? Or is little Piper Palin lurking somewhere in the shadows, preparing to leap out and sink a shiv into a nosy journalist somewhere? I could go either way on this one.
