Asked if she wants to pursue an entertainment career, she tells UsMagazine.com, "Not acting. I like doing speaking engagements and stuff like that. Right now I'm just focused on raising Tripp," her 2 1/2-year-old son with Levi Johnston.

Still, Palin, 19, says she was happy to film the episode of Teenager.

She appears as a friend of Amy (Shailene Woodley) at a music program for teen mothers in New York.

"I didn’t have many lines or anything like that," says Palin. "I just hope that this show opens up a dialogue between parents and teens -- and teens amongst themselves -- about the consequences of teen pregnancy, sex in general and relationships."
