Levi Johnston has a good gig.
Just 19 years old, he lives his life largely out of the limelight, but once in awhile gets a nice paycheck to dish about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, whose teenage daughter he famously impregnated in early 2008. Nice work!
Vanity Fair is the latest to profile America's most beloved unwed teen baby daddy. In the magazine's October issue, Levi explains what happened behind the scenes of the 2008 campaign for the White House - and inside the Palin home.
Johnston wastes little time dispelling myths about the former Alaska Governor ...
Levi on Sarah's parenting: "There wasn’t much ... The kids do it all themselves: cook, clean, do the laundry, get ready for school. Most of the time [Bristol Palin] would help her sister with homework. I’d barbecue chicken or steak on the grill."
On Sarah's reaction to him knocking up Bristol: "Sarah told me she had a great idea: we would keep it a secret - nobody would know that Bristol was pregnant. She told me that once Bristol had the baby she and Todd would adopt him."
"Sarah kept mentioning this. She wouldn’t give up. She would say, 'So, are you gonna let me adopt him?' We kept telling her definitely not. I think that Sarah didn’t want people to know her 17-year-old daughter was going to have a kid."
On Palin's response to criticism that John McCain lost because of her: "She thought she was running for president. She'd say 'I brought everything to the table' and 'the majority of people were out there voting because of me!'"
On Sarah changing post-campaign: "Sarah walked around the house pouting ... one or two weeks after she got back, she started talking about how nice it would be to quit, write a book or do a show and make 'triple the money.'"
Quality stuff, and certainly there will be plenty more where that came from. Just write Levi Johnston a check and he'll bash Sarah all you like!
