Bristol Palin on Gino Paoletti, Parenting, Politics

by at . Comments

Walking contradiction Bristol Palin, a teen mom who now advocates for abstinence, says she shuns the spotlight, only to give an all-access interview to E! News.

Bristol opened up to Guiliana Rancic about new BF, Gino Paoletti, her old BF, Levi Johnston; her political aspirations (as well as her mom's) and much more.

Excerpts and video clips below ...

On Sarah Palin's presidential hopes: "I think she would be a wonderful president, and I think she should run. She's so common-sense conservative."

"She brings a whole 'nother aspect to politics because she's a mom, because she runs a household, and I just think she's really smart."

On her own aspirations to run for office: "If I saw something that needed to be changed, I would step up to the plate and do something about it."

On the "haters" who try to keep her family down: "I feel like for every one or two haters out there, there are 20 more people that support us."

"So it doesn't really affect me when people say negative things about me or my family, but I just hope that nobody else has to go through that."

"If people are going to talk about us, then they are going to talk about us no matter what we are doing, and as long as we know we are doing something good and doing something right, then it will be OK. I'm not worried about it."

On when being in the spotlight got to her: "I remember breaking down when Levi and I broke up. Just with the things that they were saying then."

"That is the only time I have ever broken down about it. My family is so close-knit, and we do have thick skin and let everything just roll off our backs."

"So it doesn't really affect us at all."

On new beau Gino Paoletti: "He's great. He's awesome with Tripp and we've been really good friends for a long time, and he's just a really good guy."

[THG NOTE: Mercede Johnston may beg to differ]

"He's a good guy. A family guy. He's a Christian. We have the same religious beliefs and our families both come first in our lives, and we just have a lot in common. He loves Tripp and he's just awesome to be around."

On having more kids: "I'm taking it really slow. I don't want another relationship that's out in the public eye like mine and Levi's was. So, it's definitely going to go slow. I'm not in a rush to get married or anything like that."

"We're only 20 and we're just having a good time right now."


I think bristol is awesome.... haters are jealous grow up people unless you live with them you do not know what really goes on in the family


Rumor is that Gino figured out that Bristol is just as slutty as all the guys from Wasilla told him. Used left overs from the town whore. Palin's wrap up their baby whale and sell her to the highest bidder. Even will toss Willow and her boy friend in for some media attention. If this is what the Tea Party values are--I think they should just disappear. Bristool will do anything to stay in the limelight and she is fading in the land of the Midnight Sun. Imagine using your little boy on an adult show about shacking up--money and plastic surgery don't buy you any class. The Wasilly Chillybillies want you to watch Gino and Bristool to see how it is done in Alaska.


Time for the Queen of Mean to start attacking Gino. Maybe she is pregnant and candies will pay her some additional money for her abstinence program--it worked once. This ought to give her enough ammunition that Nancy French can write another book. You have to admire Track and his wife and how they want to have nothing to do with the Palin circus. Now if only senile Grandpa Heath would realize that everyone thinks he is acting like a vulture.


Looks like Bristol was more interested in money than the truth. She got big bucks for filming her soap opera about Gino and finding a dad for her son--instead the show turned into a paid advertisement for the Palin family and the cute things that her three year older says. Lame. Gino dumped her and another possible dad has hit the dirt. She tried to get Levi to do the starring role but he refused, as his girl friend is pregnant. I guess that leaves Bristol and Sarah to step up their bullying and nastiness against the Obamas.


"Bristol Palin has signed a deal with an imprint of HarperCollins to publish her memoir, Not Afraid of Life. It will provide "an inside look at her life." She's 20. WTH does she know at 20, except one thing. Premarital screwing can get you saddled with a kid.


My friend that lives in Wasilla said Mercede Johnston is known for making up stories about the Palin's. She said she did not think Gino ever dated Mercede but Mercede found a photo of him with her in her car when she gave him a ride so she SOLD that story.


At what point does a person quit speaking "high school" slang.
The haters, just because people don't agree with you politically does not mean they hate you... Maybe our country needs to go back to the idea of judging a persons character by their actions not their voting record.

Bristol Palin Quotes

Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with -- this isn't ideal. But I'm fortunate to have a supportive family, which is dealing with this together.

Bristol Palin

Tripp is so perfectly precious; we love him with all our hearts. I can't imagine life without him now.
