Bristol Palin came face to face with some of her family's biggest critics on the season premiere of her new Lifetime reality show Life's a Tripp. On the episode, a verbal fight breaks out between the 20-year-old mom and talent manager Stephen Hanks, 47, after the heckler called her mom, Sarah Palin, a "wh***."

"You're mother's the f**king devil, dude," the man continued. "If there is a hell, which I don't believe there is, she will be there."

Watch the video above to see how Bristol reacts!

During the altercation, Bristol asked if he hates her mother, the Republican Party nominee for Vice President in the 2008 presidential election, because he is gay.

"Why's that? Is it because you're a homosexual?" she asks. "I can tell you are," she said.

He later continues his tirade, shouting: "You're a white trash from Wasila. F*** you you f***ing b***h."

The incident occurred at at the Saddle Ranch on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, and Hawks has since filed a lawsuit against the program makers claiming he didn't sign a release form. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hanks is suing for unspecified damages, alleging defamation, invasion of right to privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress and misappropriation of right of publicity.

Meanwhile, there are reports that Bristol's ex-boyfriend, Kyle Massey, has also filed a lawsuit claiming that he was cut out of the reality TV project despite being responsible for its creation.

    Honestly, don't start nothing, won't be nothing. He shouldn't have said anything to her unless she spoke to him first. Even though I kinda agree with him lol

    I'll lay odds that this whole incident was scripted - Lifetime desperately needs publicity for this garbage. This will fade away after a few days.
