    Gather round the campfire, won’t ya?

    Back in August, TLC’s president and general manager announced that Sarah Palin and her family had “graciously shared their Alaska with the Gosselin family” for an upcoming episode of the ex-guv’s new reality show.

    The result airs Dec. 12 and has a sneak peek of what to expect when America’s polarizers-in-chief -- Mama Grizzly and the original Octomom -- team up in bear country: Palin plays up her rugged individualism and shoots guns, while Gosselin throws a tantrum about camping food and the cold.

    “Come on, it wasn’t that bad,” Palin intones on the clip.

    Let's hope we can say the same of the episode.
