Did Levi Lie About Palin Then — Or Now?

By Adele

Hmm… Sarah Palin seems on the fast track to becoming a bigger redneck celebrity than Minnie Pearl, so Levi Johnston has decided Bristol Palin, the teen mother his son, may not be so bad after all. He’s sort-of recanting all the nasty stuff he has said about his almost-mother-in-law, although not going so far as to praise her.

It’s too bad Levi didn’t see this Forbes piece before he hopped back on to what he undoubtedly thinks is the Palin gravy train. Apparently, Sarah’s doing well, but not quite pulling in the bucks everyone thinks she is, and her star may even be on the wane. (We should be so lucky!)

But back to my initial question. As recently as late April, Levi was still bad-mouthing Sarah to New York Magazine, quoted as saying, “I know everything there is to know about her… She’s so fake. But she’s so good at it, too. She’s amazing at it. If I didn’t know it, I wouldn’t know the difference. She’s gifted. She could do movies because she’s so gifted.”

But now he’s doing a 180. So when was he lying? Then or now?

I’m thinking it’s now. Everything he said about her before has meshed too well with the money-grubbing fame-hog Palin has shown herself to be.

Levi also told NY Mag he’s working on a memoir that would tell the truth about the Palins, but I guess that won’t be happening. Or at least it won’t be the truth.

In May, Levi was planning to file for joint custody of Tripp. Here’s what I think went down: The Palins offered Levi a deal. If he’d agree to lay off St. Sarah, he’d be allowed to see his son and have sleepovers with Bristol. So he caved.

Sarah couldn’t win the race for the White House, but she’s no match when her opponent is a dumb kid.

    Is anyone really surprised about this (besides tea party folks, I mean)?

  2. not surprised here

    I am surprised. I thought Levi would do a better job of sticking to his guns. He’s probably getting pressure from his family to play nice and see what he can milk the Palins for, since his own show-biz career is hardly on fire.

    The Tea Party should be very relieved that the one person who knew Palin “when,” up-close and personal, has dummied up.

    But I have a feeling we haven’t heard the last of Levi. No way is he going to hole up in Wasilla and be a good boy and a daddy, now that he’s had a taste of celebrity. He and Sarah will have another falling out over SOMETHING and he’ll be singing like a jaybird again.

    These Tea Party folks sure like to llve up to American family values, don’t they? In cats it’s normal to have incestual relations. I have a feeling it’s the same in Tea Party and Extreme GOP families!

    Writing this article I read that the Palins are building a 6,000-sq.-ft. building on their property in Wasilla as, I think, apartments for the oldest son (Tray? Tron? Trash? Can’t remember his name), Bristol, and maybe an office for Sarah. Keeping it all in the family. like the Kennedys.

    I also read that they have a HOTEL on one side of them, which made me wonder why Sarah had her knickers in a twist over that writer who’s writing a book about her renting the house on the other side. The hotel could be putting up busloads of people to gawk over her fence, but she’s never mentioned it that I know of.

    And it makes you wonder that don’t humans have more to do in their lives than to watch this circus, if they’re staying in a hotel near the dizzy dame and her company of clowns. I hope some of the neighborhood cats toss some stinky fish heads over her fence-if any come around due to Shotgun Sarah and a possible Grizzly or Kodiak bear. She’s so gun-happy I don’t trust her as far as I can spit a hairball! Now that she’s got her fence and is building a compound and likely a full arsenal, is she channeling David Koresh? She has some pretty wild religious beliefs.

    Well, Adele, I guess we know the reason for Levi’s backpedaling. I just saw that he and Bristol are engaged and plan to marry in about 6 weeks.

    Bristol says that she still harbors some anger at Levi for trashing her family, so they’ll be going to counseling before the wed to work it out.

    It seems Sarah and Todd are somewhat less than enthusiastic about the union. AOL interviewed therapists, most of whom said there’d be a lot to be gained if the senior Palins joined the young couple in family therapy. But wait, don’t you need a brain for therapy to be successful?

    Yes, I saw this morning on the Today Show that Bristol and Levi announced their engagement on the cover of US magazine because Bristol was afraid to tell Sarah. Matt Lauer said something about Sarah finding out while watching the show, and within minutes, the elder Palins sent the show a statement.

    The funniest thing I heard was that Bristol and Levi now believe in abstinence! Yeah, right. Once the cow is out of the barn and births a calf, it seems a little late. I’m thinking that’s why the wedding is in a few weeks.

    That, and Bristol’s afraid Levi will change his mind at the prospect of returning to high school after he’s done a Playgirl spread and seen the big cities in the lower 48.

    I give him zero chance of successfully returning to the life of a backwoods redneck slob with Sarah Palin the “Mama Grizzly” for his mother-in-law. Bristol will be lucky if he sticks around a year.
