Bristol Palin's DWTS: All-Stars Blog -- Time To Rock 'N' Roll

Mark Ballas and Bristol Palin perform during Week 3 of 'Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars,' Oct. 8, 2012 -- ABC

I wish I didn't have to start this blog about the fight between Mark and me, but I know it was really a big part of our show package last week.

As you know, Mark and I have been friends and partners for a long time, and we've never had a conflict. Ninety-nine percent of the time, we get along well really well - like he's my brother. But, just like siblings, we got into a fight. With all the emotions of this sometimes stressful competition, things boiled over and, well, we got into it.

It lasted for about 45 minutes, and you guys only got to see a snippet. Needless to say, it was an emotional time. I cried, left, and got over it. The next day, Mark and I got together, started practicing, and really united to do our dance.

As you saw, Mark and I re-enacted Derek Hough and Joanna Krupa's paso doble from Season 9. I loved the chess-inspired theme, the cool "ice princess" costume, and the fact that our score was 4.5 points higher than we've scored before this season!

Sadly, we were at the bottom of the leaderboard... again. The good news is that - now that our "first fight" is out of the way -- we are even closer than ever. This week, we were assigned the "Rock 'n' Roll" theme, which is good, because I had no idea what some of those dance styles were. (What on earth will that "Bollywood" dance look like!?) At first, I thought that meant we were going to be dancing to Van Halen or AC/DC or something. We'll be dancing to a 1950s style, but I'm just as excited!

Mark loves rock 'n' roll, so he's excited about this week! He says it's a combination of Lindy Hop and jitterbug, which means that it's fast. I'll also have to show attitude and energy, so that will be a challenge. I'm so thankful to be on "All-Stars," and I know everyone on the show will be amazing this week. I appreciate all you guys calling, texting, e-mailing, and Facebooking your votes for me! If you want to be a part of my journey, e-mail me so I can add you to my DWTS mailing list.
