Sarah Palin Reacts to Personal Treatment by TRUE BLOOD
According to Deadline, at the San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, True Blood castmember Kristin Bauer van Straten revealed that HBO attempted to get Sarah Palin to make a cameo in one of the episodes; however, she turned down the offer. The episode aired on July 20 and included several digs at the Republican GOP as well as a bloodbath at a fictional fundraiser for real-life Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
Palin stated, "The brilliant minds of True Blood were brazen enough to ask me to do a cameo on their show, apparently so they could insult a conservative woman in person instead of just all conservative women in general. Their offer wasn't presented in any negative way, perhaps to benefit from a surprise factor after the guest appearance. I turned them down anyway."
