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.
