Levi Johnston–the father of Sarah Palin’s first grandchild, former boyfriend of Bristol Palin–appeared on the Tyra Banks Show Monday. And wow, he’s cute. And kinda–well it’s good he has hunting to fall back on. He’s seems very sweet and shy and really not capable of lying…because—um like I said, it’s good he can hunt for his food. By the way in case you were wondering, Levi says moose tastes like
In the first segment, he explains what happened after Tripp was born and why he and Bristol broke up:
Things got all complicated, uh we started fightin’. We just weren’t seeing to eye to each other anymore and we thought it’d better to be friends.
I think the friends thing might be not an option any more, given the harsh words Gov GILF has issued in statements. Comments like these don’t really make for warm Thanksgiving get-togethers:
Levi admits that since the break up he can’t see cant see Tripp as much. One reason Bristol put her foot down:
Her and my sister don’t get along.
And part of that is because Levi’s sister Mercede (Mer-say-dee) is friends with a lot of the girls Levi used to date and Bristol doesn’t want "previous girlsfriends" to see Tripp.
While he says never felt pressured into getting engaged to Bristol, Levi did feel a bit pressured about going to the RNC convention. Mercede told Tyra:
Levi told me [Bristol Palin] called and said that, ‘You’re going,’ and he said, ‘I want to go hunting,’ and she said, ‘You’re going.’
Maybe that should have been a clue this relationship was doomed…
So why are the Johnstons breaking their silence? And for free!? As Tyra points out, they weren’t paid for their appearance!
Well, they want to let America know that they’re good people and underneath it all comes out that the Johnstons are genuinely expressing their hurt at not being able to see baby Tripp. But also there’s "so much bad stuff" being said in the media, that they want to clear up a lot of the stories which get distorted. Oopsie. Maybe posting personal stuff on Myspace isn’t a really good idea.
"Gram" Sherry Johnston, baby Tripp’s other granny, explains that things changed and once Palin was nominated for vice president and are now a nightmare. The Johnstons
Never expected this to happened, the media…media everywhere, never being able to say anything…
Mereced explained thatduring campaign all questions were to be refered to the McCain campaign and then answered "no comment," which was really hard for her.The saga just gets just gets sadder: Sherry, Mercede and Levi have been denied access to baby Tripp by Sarah and Bristol. Sherry naively/tactfully/like a good conservative blames the media because she doesn’t know who else to blame–and because frankly if she blames Sarah Palin’s stuck up self-righteous attitude, things will just get worse. And really, so what if Sherry was arrested for distribution of oxycontin? Gov GILF’s semi-sister-in-law was busted for breaking into a house. Twice. In one week. With her 4 year old in tow.
The real heart breaker for Gram Sherry, and for any grandmother?
I don’t get no pictures. I’m not wanting pictures to go sell.
Levi and his family now get to see Tripp about once a month, and while they haven’t gone to court, he’s
Looking like it, I don’t want to go that way…
Heck, surely there’s a father’s rights group that will help him out wiht the legal fees, because this could get ugly. And expensive.
Levi’s biggest piece of advice (and not it’s not using condoms!): When it comes to getting a name tattooed on your finger:
I don’t recommend it.
