Track Was A Druggie? Bristol Had Work Before? Mercede Johnston’s Many Claims About The Palins

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 »

Sarah Palin’s Hair Salon Is The Subject Of A New Reality TV Series

Whatever you think of Sarah Palin‘s politics and penchant for moose hunting, there is one thing that’s hard to deny about the woman: she has really nice hair. Apparently, she gets her updos done at the Beehive, a small salon in Wasilla, Alaska. And now, the salon will be the subject of a two-part reality TV series on TLC, the same channel that brought you “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” The show will be called “Big Hair Alaska” and, according to the press release will go “inside a busy hair salon in Wasilla, Alaska, where the personalities of the owner and her staff are as big as the hairstyles they create.” Think of it as “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover” meets “Twin Peaks” with a heavy side-order of everyone’s favorite hockey mom.

Julianne Moore Says Nailing Sarah Palin’s Accent, Mannerisms Was “Really, Really Hard”

“It was hard—really, really hard … It’s hard to play someone who is very present in people’s minds, who’s on television, who’s very idiosyncratic, I did my best. We’ll see, I hope we pulled it off … [The accent took] practice, an incredible amount of practice. I had to listen to it over and over again. My son was embarrassed because [Palin's speeches were] all that was on my iPod. He said, ‘Where’s your music?’ I erased all my music.”

Julianne Moore talks to MTV News about what it was like playing Sarah Palin in the HBO movie “Game Change.” For some reason, I am picturing her and Tina Fey at a bar, sipping gin and tonics and trading war stories about the complexities of winking correctly and finding the exact right Alaskan lilt.

Morning Quickies: Sarah Palin’s Daughter-In-Law Britta Hanson Is Pregnant

  • Track Palin’s new wife Britta Hanson is pregnant and posing in pics on Facebook with her baby shower loot. The Frisky totally suspected this! Track and Britta got married two months ago with a small ceremony in Alaska and said they’d celebrate with a bigger ceremony later in the year. “Hmm,” we thought. “Why the hurry?” Turns out those Palins are just as fertile as they’ve always been. Mazel tov, Sarah Palin! You’re going to be a grandma again! [Celebitchy via Gawker]

  • An old friend of Chelsea Handler is blabbing to gossip mags about how they used to do lots of ecstasy and cocaine together. She’s worried the talk show host is still doing drugs and drinking heavily. Chelsea Handler drinking heavily? Sorry, Morgain McGovern, but that’s not news. Girlfriend has a friggin’ book called Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea. Also, she talks fairly regularly on her show about all the drugs she used to do, so I fail to see why this is a bombshell. [RadarOnline]

Nevada Denies A Sarah Palin Vanity Plate. Or Did They?

Guys, we are obviously in the midst of a liberal conspiracy. A Nevada man named James Linlor is suing his state’s Department of Motor Vehicles because they refused to issue him a vanity plate for his car that reads “GOPALIN.” As in, Sarah Palin. Apparently, the Nevada DMV dictates that when it comes to vanity plates, “No combination of letters, numbers or spaces is allowed if it … (e)xpresses contempt, ridicule or superiority of … political affiliation.” Linlor and his lawyer claim that the DMV unconstitutionally applied this stipulation. They gave as proof the fact that the DMV had issued plates that read “DMOCRAT” and “AL GORE.” Linlor also put in an application for the plate “GOOBAMA,” and said that was approved, no problem.

It almost sounds like this guy has a point … except that, after being initially denied, he was issued a “GOPALIN” plate. More than six months ago. Keep reading »

Sarah Palin Thinks She Can Win The 2012 Election

Sarah Palin Newsweek cover

“I believe that I can win a national election. The people of America are desperate for positive change, and deserving of positive change, to get us off of this wrong track. I’m not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things around, but I do believe that I can win. If it came down to the family just saying, ‘Please, Mom, don’t do this,’ then that would be the deal-killer for me, because your family’s gotta be in it with you … I think Bristol has made up her mind, and Bristol wants me to run for president. But we’re still thinking about it. I’m still thinking about it.”

Sarah Palin keeps the will-she-or-won’t-she rhetoric going in the latest issue of Newsweek while simultaneously making it pretty clear that, duh, she will. Shall we start taking bets on when she’ll making the official announcement of her entry into the race? [Newsweek] Keep reading »
