Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston may be engaged now, but just two months ago, Bristol was dating a guy named Ben Barber. In a good old-fashioned Alaskan love triangle, Ben was a friend of both Bristol and Levi’s in high school. In fact, when Bristol and Levi were engaged the first time around, Ben was going to be one of Levi’s groomsmen. But, after Christmas, Ben and Bristol hooked up. “Bristol called me angry about Levi and then we just fell into place,” Ben told The Daily Beast. “It was good and then went downhill.” Keep reading »

“I would be absolutely devastated if I wasn’t invited to the wedding—it would be the last straw. They should elope if they can’t have the Johnstons and the Palins together. But don’t leave us out of it. That would kill me.”
I was tickled when I saw that Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston had announced their engagement to Us Weekly before they’d told Sarah Palin. But now some are saying the young lovers reunited and orchestrated this drama in order to get a reality show. According to Gawker, “Within the next four to six weeks, Palin’s PR people will be releasing news that Bristol and Levi have signed on to ‘star’ in a new reality show. All about young parenting. And yes, they will also work up to a wedding.”
I have to be honest. I’m not mad at the idea of Bristol and Levi getting their own show. Keep reading »
Could this obviously scripted Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston engagement video possibly be any more awkward? Poor Levi looks like he got caught with a butterfly net while Bristol gloats with “I won” subtext. And their kiss rivals Al and Tipper’s infamously gross makeout session at the Democratic National Convention. “It just feels right to be a family,” beams Bristol. Uh, it feels so wrong to me.

So. Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are engaged. Well, duh, Bristol ain’t no fool! Girlfriend knows Levi is a hot hunk of man meat and methinks that “abstinence pledge” kick she was on wasn’t a lick of fun. Even though I think it’s highly questionable the pair thinks they can happily reunite after so much public acrimony in the past, at least they’re trying to make it work for baby Tripp, right? … Right?
Ah, well. We suspect we won’t be invited to the impending nuptials — sure to be frosty in more ways than one! — but it would only be polite to send a gift. After the jump, some wedding gift suggestions for Bristol and Levi. Keep reading »
This Thanksgiving is going to be awkward: Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin are engaged. Only a month ago, Bristol and Levi said they’d set their differences aside for the sake of their 1-year-old son, Tripp. And now these kids are getting married — even after Levi’s media carpet-bombing campaign in which he trashed former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin at every opportunity! “We got engaged two weeks ago,” Bristol told Us Weekly. “It felt right, even though we don’t have the approval of our parents.” Sarah Palin and her husband Todd released a statement in support of their daughter’s decision. “Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives,” the Palins said. “We pray that, as a couple, Bristol and Levi’s relationship matures into one that will allow Tripp to grow up graced with two loving parents in his life.”
“Last year, after Bristol and I broke up, I was unhappy and a little angry. Unfortunately, against my better judgment, I publicly said things about the Palins that were not completely true. I have already privately apologized to Todd and Sarah. Since my statements were public, I owe it to the Palins to publicly apologize. So to the Palin family in general and to Sarah Palin in particular, please accept my regrets and forgive my youthful indiscretion. I hope one day to restore your trust.”
– Levi Johnston admits to telling a few fibs about Sarah Palin and family following his split from Bristol. Is Levi trying to crawl his way out of the dog house and back into the good graces of the Palins because he and Bristol are maybe back together? Hmmm. [People] Keep reading »
Everyone is wondering what the heck is up with Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston. This week, Us Weekly quoted a source as saying, “They spend more time together than most people think. … Levi even stays overnight. I even think they are back together.” Then the National Enquirer upped the ante, saying that Levi’s truck has been parked at Bristol’s for a while now. Neither source is so reputable, but these tabs do have a way of being right on occasion.
So, Bristol appeared on “Good Morning America” today and was of course asked about Levi. Here’s what she had to say… Keep reading »
In the most random of possible celeb reconciliations, Us Weekly is reporting that Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are back on. A source tells the magazine, “Bristol and Levi are still very close. … Now that Mama Palin is out of the picture and Bristol is on her own in Anchorage, they spend more time together than most people think. … Levi even stays overnight. I even think they are back together.” OK, so it’s hardly concrete facts we’re talking about here, but of all the celeb weeklies, Us is usually pretty on the mark. How bizarre would it be if the parents of little Tripp actually got back together? After all, Bristol sued Levi for back child support in February (and won), while Levi trash-talked Bristol’s parents, Sarah and Todd Palin, oh, everywhere from “The Tyra Show” to “Oprah” to GQ. And Mama Grizzly sure isn’t a fan of her cub’s baby daddy, but maybe Bristol isn’t done rebelling. Keep reading »
“Having sex has consequences, no matter how safe you are. If I could go back, I would have told myself that just because he’s good at sports and drives a cool truck, it’s meaningless — it’s pointless.”
