He may be dumb as rocks, but Levi Johnston is a hot DILF. Bristol Palin’s ex-fiance and baby daddy appears in the June issue of GQ, posing shirtless while changing his son Tripp’s diaper. Earlier this month, Bristol appeared with Tripp on the cover of People, so I guess they’re even when it comes to exploiting their child for publicity.

When I was in high school, I dated a guy that my parents absolutely hated. They didn’t even call him by his name—instead they called him, er, anyway—and they begged and pleaded with me on a daily basis to get rid of him. They even bought me a book called How To Dump A Guy. Eventually, I saw the light and my parents got their way.
Apparently, my parents aren’t the only ones who’ve gone to great lengths to get their daughter away from a hated BF. In an interview with GQ magazine, Levi Johnston said that Bristol Palin’s daddy, Todd, offered to buy his daughter a car if she dumped him. Other highlights of his interview: he poses shirtless with baby Trigg, just like every good father should. He also blabs about how he and Bristol drifted apart after the McCain/Palin ticket went down in the 2008 election. Oh, and he finally revealed what McCain said to him on the tarmac. “You have good hands,” McCain reportedly told him. Is that anything like a wide stance? [GQ Via NY Daily News] Keep reading »
When Bristol Palin got knocked up at age 17, she made national headlines. We applauded her for realizing that “everyone should be abstinent or whatever but it’s not realistic at all,” and we were hopeful (for three seconds) that she would turn this unfortunate situation into a positive one by promoting safe sex. But when she said seconds later that “you should just wait ten years,” we got on her case. The girl is a walking contradiction. And it hasn’t stopped there. Keep reading »
Bristol Palin appeared on “The Today Show” and “Good Morning America” today because it’s the National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, and Palin has signed on to be a national spokeswoman for the Candie’s Foundation. We watched the interviews, and they were equally awkward. On “Today,” Bristol appeared with baby Tripp and her father, Todd. Mostly, she talked about how much work being a mother is, and how it’s a full-time job. While she didn’t practice abstinence, she wants other young women to know how hard it is to be a mother. As for Levi Johnston, Bristol said she wasn’t on “Today” to talk about her personal life, but after an uncomfortable silence and some questioning by Matt Lauer, she said Levi is a part of Tripp’s life, although she wouldn’t say to what extent. The interview unraveled at the end when Todd said, “Sharing Bristol’s experience with other teenagers, the mistake she had here over a year ago, if she could prevent one teenager from getting pregnant, that would be great.” Oops. Todd called Tripp a mistake.
Actually, Todd seemed less media-savvy than Bristol, which might be why he didn’t accompany Bristol for her “Good Morning America” interview. In addition to doing a one-on-one interview with Chris Cuomo, she appeared with Neil Cole from the Candie’s Foundation. “Just because you’re wearing high-heeled sexy shoes doesn’t mean you should have a baby,” he said. Oooh. Compelling. Keep reading »
Speaking at a “right-to-life” event in Indiana yesterday, former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin told the crowd that she has “just for a fleeting moment” considered an abortion when she learned her youngest son, Trig, would be born with Down’s Syndrome: “That blew me away, it rocked my world… It was a time I asked myself, was I going to walk the walk?” she said. In the end, obviously, she chose to continue the pregnancy. Trig turns one year old tomorrow.
Hmm. This is the second time that Palin has acknowledged that abortion is an issue of choice. Last summer she said she was proud of pregnant daughter Bristol’s “decision to have her baby.” Now she’s saying she considered having an abortion, but chose not to. Clearly, both she and Bristol chose what was right for them and their families, but they had a choice. Palin, of course, is a staunch supporter of revoking Roe V. Wade. If she got her way, the two options SHE considered would be whittled down to one — for the rest of us. [AOL News] Keep reading »
Levi Johnston continued along the media parade route this morning, stopping by “The Early Show” with his mom and sister Mercede to discuss this whole Palin family debacle. Among the revelations? Despite what the Palin’s are saying, he did live under their roof even before Bristol got knocked up and Sarah tots knew he was stickin’ it in. Also, he hates it when people call his family white trash, and, oh yeah, he’s totally open to modeling! Clip above. Keep reading »
Oh damn, Levi Johnston, Bristol Palin’s ex and baby daddy, is on The Tyra Show right now and he and his family are spillin’ the beans! TyTy, of course, wants to assure everyone that this is a legitimate interview — that Levi and his family are not being paid to appear. Duh, you know they picked Tyra to talk to over Oprah or Barbara Walters because Levi’s sister is probably a big fan. Above, Levi says he’s pretty sure that Sarah Palin knew he and Bristol were gettin’ it on, then assures Tyra that he and Bristol were having safe sex. Well, most of the time. Is it weird that I am oddly attracted to the cute dummy? Another clip, after the jump… Keep reading »
