Bristol Palin-Levi Johnston Engagement: Just For (Reality) Show?

by at . Comments

Yesterday, we reported the joyous engagement of the previously-engaged, then estranged, then reconciled tandem from Alaska, Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston.

It's a wonderful thing, couples doing what it takes for love, for a child. But given who we're talking about, there are cynics who suspect other motives at work.

Seriously, when's the reality show announcement? Next week? The week after?

We stress again, this is just a rumor started by cynics. Yet it wouldn't shock us. Think Bethenny Getting Married meets Northern Exposure meets the RNC!

Gawker floats the following theory: "Within the next 4-6 weeks Palin's PR people will releases news that Bristol and Levi will 'star' in a new reality show."

This photo likely helped Levi pay child support for a year!

"All about young parenting. And yes, they will also work up to a wedding." One they will remain abstinent prior to, of course. Because they're like that.

"This is part of the planned 'story arc.' Levi will be promoted as young, decent, salt of the earth guy. Bristol will be seen dealing with 'challenges' of young motherhood."

"Willow will be on a lot, maybe some Piper thrown in. They'll attempt to boost rankings the first few episodes by having Sarah cameos, but the rest of the time will be a 'conservative young marrieds who just happen to already have a baby' theme."

Is such a scenario that crazy? Think about it. Levi's on the hook for $1,700 a month in child support - that's like $3,000 per month before taxes - a sizable sum even if one weren't tied to the state of Alaska or lacking for a college degree.

We're just saying. The reality show would give him a salary, get the Palins get off his back, and get everybody on the same page as far as hyping the mythical exploits of Sarah Palin and her brood. Foolproof if you think about it.

Reality show or not, will they last?

Well the apples don't fall far from the tree. Perhaps TLC can squeeze these two in between the narcissitic divas, Kate Gosselin and Mommie Dearest, good ole Sarah Palin.
