This is the Palin Conundrum: ignore them and hope they go away, or pay attention to the insipid things they do in order to mock them, thus contributing to their tick-bite hold on the public psyche.
The good news is that in Bristol Palin’s upcoming Lifetime reality show “Life’s A Tripp,” girlfriend may just encourage you to stop paying attention to her out of sheer apathy. The attempts at plot drama — paparazzi are taking photos! some man confronts Bristol in a bar about her mom! — are the kinds of “drama” that would have ended up on the “Real Housewives” cutting room floor. The best part is when Bristol tells her sister “I wouldn’t wish this on anyone,” which is usually the feeling of someone who does a reality show. So grab yourself a double espresso and check out the series trailer. At least Tripp is cute? See an extended clip from the show, featuring mom Sarah, after the jump! [MyLifetime] Keep reading »
Levi Johnston‘s sister, Mercede Johnston, makes her big Playboy debut this week, taking it all off for a four-page pictorial accompanied by an interview where she launches some pretty big allegation grenades against Sarah Palin and her family. And these are in addition to the charge Bristol Palin allegedly got pregnant on purpose. After the jump, we rate the probable likelihood of Mercede’s latest claims about the Palin clan. If I were Mercede, I wouldn’t say such things about a family of sharp shooters. Keep reading »
“Levi was whipped like Todd, because Bristol is very manipulative. She’d use sex to get her way on many things … Bristol’s pregnancy wasn’t unexpected, an accident. She and Levi planned it. They were trying to conceive for months.”
—Mercede Johnston sounds off in the new issue of Playboy about her brother Levi Johnston‘s relationship with Bristol Palin and drops the bombshell that the two allegedly planned to have a child together. I would be much more inclined to believe this if the rest of her quotes in the articles weren’t so ranty. And if she were wearing clothes while she said it. [Playboy] Keep reading »

, and attempted to clarify that while Levi Johnston
“stole” her virginity
, it wasn’t date rape
. She said:
“[Stolen] is what it felt like. I’m not accusing Levi of date rape or rape at all but I am just looking back with my adult eyes that I have now, and just thinking ‘that was a foolish decision.’ I should have never been underage drinking, and I should have never gotten myself into a situation like that.”

Sometimes I think Kathy Griffin would not have any material if it weren’t for the Palin family. But I don’t necessarily mind because, like she says here in a clip from her “Kathy Griffin: Gurrl Down” comedy special, the Palin family is really effing funny. Here Kathy talks about how she went to Wasilla, Alaska, with Levi Johnston to knock on the Palins’ front door … and could not see one inch of Russia. What the…? [AOL TV] Keep reading »
Bristol Palin makes many claims against Levi Johnston in her book Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, which came out on Friday. But one of the saddest came at the moment she told Johnston she was pregnant. “It better be a boy,” he told her, and it’s one part of her book I have no doubt is probably true.
The fact is, many, many men prefer boys. Whether it’s because they’re more comfortable with them or they simply aren’t evolved enough to realize girls can do anything boys can do is unclear. What is clear is that men — and some women — prefer boys.
Most of these reasons hinge on stereotypes. Read more… Keep reading »
Bristol Palin lost her virginity to Levi Johnston drunk on wine coolers, according to her new memoir. The pro-abstinence advocate first slept with the Playgirl model in a tent while camping at Point MacKenzie in 2006, at age 15 — and she doesn’t remember it. Keep reading »
