There is nothing really controversial about Harper's Bazaar's new feature on Bristol Palin, but she does address sensitive, obvious issues such as teen pregnancy.

She admits "it was kind of humiliating" to get pregnant as a teen. "[I was thinking], 'Great, I'm 17 years old, I'm 40 pounds overweight with a big belly on me.'"

"All my friends are at school watching on the news. This kind of sucks. I thought I would be somewhere warm at college with my friends," the 19-year-old adds.

"But that was definitely not possible with having Tripp"

Bristol Palin, who is raising now 17-month-old Tripp as a single mom after ending her fake engagement from Levi Johnston, says life is not what she envisioned.

But that's also okay. Look what she got in return ...

Bristol Palin and Tripp Johnston

"I love my baby more than anything. He's like a Gerber baby. He's the cutest baby in the whole world," she says. "I just want Tripp to be happy and healthy."

Bristol works as a medical assistant and serves as an ambassador to the Candie's Foundation - as an abstinence advocate, no less - to support her little son:

"I'm on my own. I'm really proud of it. I'm a hard worker. I don't have time for friends or anything. It's just like, crap, there is a hockey game tonight that I want to go to but I can't. Or, I do have to go to work today, because I've got bills to pay."

Sarah Palin says she's "very proud of her [daughter] for taking responsibility. It's not an easy road, but it's the right road. Decisions were made, and we can't unwind those decisions. Consequences are being dealt with. I'm sincerely proud of her."

Bristol says her parents had no idea she was sexually active with Levi Johnston, who says Sarah let them share a bedroom when he lived with the family.

"It's not like we sat down and were like, 'Alright, here's the birds and the bees,'" Bristol says. "Truly, my parents just assumed that I wasn't doing anything."

Bristol Palin recently said life is really hard as a single, working mom.

Such is life. But it's about to become more lucrative for her, at least.

The 19-year-old daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is set to join the speaker circuit and make between $15,000-30,000 per speech, reports say.

Amazingly, this implies there are people willing to pay that amount.

"Her teen pregnancy and the birth of her son Tripp resulted in millions of Americans discussing the issue of teen pregnancy," reads her Single Source Speakers bio.

Oh, to be a struggling new mother ... giving your infant son a bath and collecting five-figure checks from In Touch Weekly and the like on a semi-regular basis.

"Bristol Palin has since gone on to become a Teen Ambassador for the Candie's Foundation, and speaks about pregnancy prevention, abstinence, faith and life."

In addition to posing for magazines, Levi Johnston's baby mama has become an hypocritical advocate for abstinence since welcoming Tripp 16 months ago.

In a People cover story a year ago, Palin warned teens about how hard it is to be a teen mom. "Girls need to imagine and picture their life with a screaming newborn baby and then think before they have sex ... Think about the consequences."

She said the same in her teen pregnancy PSA for Candie's.

Think teen baby mama Bristol Palin has it easy as the daughter of a famous politician and the ex-fake fiancee of a successful nude Playgirl model? Not so.

Bristol Palin Book Signing

"[My parents] are there for support when I need it emotionally, but I'm on my own financially. I work an 8-to-5 job, five days a week," Palin told People.

"My parents help, but they're not at my disposal. That's a huge misconception."

So true. Poor Bristol Palin is like all other single mothers, getting herself up for tabloid cover shoots and Secret Life of the American Teenager cameos.

Bristol's mother, Sarah Palin, has earned millions since leaving office last July. But not a lot of that money is apparently going to buy diapers for Tripp.

"I'm doing it by myself," Bristol says. "I live by myself."

"I'm working to provide for [my son]. Financially, it's very difficult. I'd say the majority of any check I ever receive is going to Tripp. Child care is very expensive, formula is expensive, diapers are expensive – you don't think about that as a kid, at all."

You don't think about that when you're having unprotected sex with Levi Johnston apparently, either. Just saying ... does she really want credit for dealing with the consequences of her own actions and not being spoiled by her rich mom?

You have kids, your life becomes all about them - wow, stop the presses!

At least she and Levi are getting along better lately.

We know it's what you're supposed to do, and you really shouldn't give a man credit for it, but we're talking about Levi Johnston, so standards are low.

For the first time, Levi has made on-time child support payments to his baby mama Bristol Palin ... for two consecutive months. Downright respectable!

Even more shocking? Both sides finally getting along.

Ever since Levi paid his $21,000 debt to Bristol earlier this year, lawyers for both confirm he followed up with $1,750 in support for both March and April.

Moreover, sources connected to both Levi and Bristol Palin, who have long been at odds, say the two young Alaskans are being civil towards one another.

Actually supporting your kid will do that!

Levi during his fake engagement to Bristol at the 2008 RNC.

The daughter of Sarah Palin, Bristol has primary custody of 1-year-old Tripp, but is even allowing Levi to spend time with their son "whenever Levi wants."

Levi has been taking her up on the offer, too.

Next up? Bristol and Levi are planning to sit down for private mediation to work out the rest of the kinks in their custody battle, mainly money issues and visitation schedules, before they're due back in court to settle things come September.

We're happy for them, and for Tripp. But a little sad for us, because they're threatening to become downright normal, civil and cordial exes at this rate.

We'd miss the old Levi Johnston.

Bristol Palin said she received countless phone calls and texts when her number was posted online after her mom's e-mail was hacked back two years ago.

Palin testified Wednesday that she was 17 and pregnant in 2008 when her Sarah Palin's Yahoo! account was invaded by a Tennessee college student.

Now 19, Bristol Palin said the worst harassment occurred when a bunch of boys called her up, claiming they were outside her door and wanted in.

No word if baby daddy Levi Johnston was one of rowdy gang of hooligans or if anyone inquired about whether or not her refrigerator was running.

"We live in the middle of nowhere in Alaska ... in the middle of the woods," Palin said, noting that private photos of her family were posted online.

Bristol Palin can thank this doofus for the phone and text harassment.

"I saw a screen shot on the TV ... I think it was Fox News," she said, coincidentally plugging the station for which Sarah is a paid political analyst.

David Kernell, 22, has been charged with identity theft, wire fraud, accessing Palin's e-mail account without authorization and obstructing an FBI investigation.

If convicted, he could be sent to prison for up to 50 years.

The former University of Tennessee student has not been accused of the harassing calls, e-mails and text messages that Bristol Palin described to the jury.

Kernell's attorney claims the e-mail intrusion was just a prank and has attempted to show the account was accessible to others. But he still did it, right?

Sarah's hacked account was set up just after she was picked to be the Vice Presidential running mate of Republican presidential nominee John McCain.

Bristol Palin has released a new anti-teen pregnancy PSA.

That alone is the height of hypocrisy, but her profound message takes it to a new level. According to Bristol, you're not privileged as she, so you can't get away with it.

"What if I didn't come from a famous family?" she asks in the PSA for the Candie's Foundation, which bears the name of skimpy clothing line for teenage girls.

"What if I didn't have all their support? What if I didn't have all these opportunities? Believe me, it wouldn't be pretty," Bristol Palin adds before delivering the clincher:

"Pause before you play."

If only she had told Levi Johnston that back in 2008, she would be much better off. Or not, seeing that she keeps milking her unwed teen mom status for fiscal gain.

MY FAMILY'S RICH! This is essentially Bristol Palin's rationale for why it's okay Levi Johnston knocked her up, and why you shouldn't follow in her naked footsteps.

Gotta love effectively preaching a double standard in a PSA. Brilliant.

The 19-year-old Palin, who last year was appointed "Teen Pregnancy Ambassador" (you cannot make this crap up) for the foundation, appears alongside son Tripp in the campaign, which officially rolls out in print and video form next month.

May is National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month after all. No word on whether Jamie Lynn Spears is also filming compelling, heartfelt PSAs like this one.

It's hard to imagine a way in which this crusade won't work. We can just see teen girls pondering Bristol's sage advice: "Hmmm, Bristol admits she's okay because she's rich and famous. But, wow, I'm not! She's right, let me refrain from sex."

Get ready to watch teen pregnancy rates plummet.

Levi Johnston has finally coughed up the full back child support payments he owes to his baby mama and former fake fiancee, but that doesn't mean he has to like it.

The aspiring actor and Playgirl model wrote Bristol Palin a check for $21,561.12 - the full amount that an Alaska judge ordered Levi to pay - and it actually cleared.

Brooke, Mark and Bristol

Levi is still ordered to pay $1,750 a month in child support payments, which he's not happy about, and is also on the hook for an additional $3,500 in back support.

The 19-year-old will try to comply with the judge’s order, he’s not happy about having to pay so much, his lawyer Rex Butler said, arguing that the sum is just unfair.

Levi Johnston is teaming up with Kathy Griffin to pay the bills.

“Levi promptly paid the full amount that the court ordered ... he does not agree with the amount and will seek reconsideration of the court’s order,” Butler said Monday.

“If he prevails, he will receive a credit ... he will obviously work hard to generate the income, but he’d rather pay and fight than be in contempt of the court’s order.”

Levi is already working to try and pay what he owes, no matter what it takes. He recently shot an episode of Kathy Griffin’s TV show My Life On The D List in Alaska.

He's also rumored for a role on Desperate Housewives in the near future. Hopefully that works out ... we can see him as a teenage hunk who knocks someone up.

Levi Johnston screwed Bristol Palin at least once. Now a judge is putting the screws to him for not making good on required child support payments for their son.

Last week, he was ordered to pay $18,500 in back child support for 13-month-old son Tripp, or approximately $18,488 more than a box of condoms runs at CVS.

Now he's being told to cough up another $3,500, ASAP. Where will he get that kind of cash on short notice? Time for another round of Levi Johnston nude pics!

To be fair, Levi didn't do anything wrong ... at least anything additional.

Levi Johnston has a lot of bills to pay.

Long story short: an Alaska judge re-ran the numbers and determined the $18,000 in child support payments Bristol Palin requested from Levi was way too low.

So now, according to legal papers filed this week back home, Levi is on the hook for $21,561.12. Rough times for an aspiring actor and occasional naked model.

This is serious business, too. If Levi doesn't fork over the cash in a timely manner, he could face some serious consequences. We're talking fines and possibly jail.

Hey, at least you know he'd be quite popular in prison ...

It's a good thing Levi Johnston posed for Playgirl: as a result, he should be able to actually support his son.

An Alaskan judge has sided with Bristol Palin and ordered Levi to pay $18,500 in back child support for 13-month-old son Tripp. The deadbeat father could have saved about $18,485 if he had just bought a pack of condoms back in the day.

Johnston must also shell out $1,688.42 per month in child support.

Their sham of an engagement over, Bristol and Levi have gone from making public appearances to support Sarah Palin's political future to fighting it out in a courtroom.

"Bristol is pleased with the court rulings today and looks forward to resolving the remaining issues with Levi," said lawyer Thomas Van Flein, one of the few family employees that has not resigned due to Sarah Palin's selfish lunacy.

Bristol was present in the courtroom for the ruling. Johnston was not.

"I have received limited and sporadic financial assistance from Levi," she said in a statement, citing Johnston's $105,000 in 2009 earnings, versus his meager payments to her of $4,400.

Where will the pair go from here? Johnston might actually guest star on Desperate Housewives, while Bristol is booked for a hypocritical appearance on The Secret Life of an American Teenager. It's an ironic title for a show on which she'll cameo.

After all, Sarah Palin has gone out of her way to make sure Bristol's life is anything but secret.

Earlier, we reported about teen mom Bristol Palin's upcoming cameo on ABC Famliy's The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Give it up for family values!

Isn't this hypocritical and counterproductive? Isn't having Bristol Palin on the show basically glorifying teen pregnancy? The network said in a press release:

"Bristol Palin is the most famous teenage mother in America. We're thrilled to have her join us, and I think she will bring additional attention to the issues facing teen parents that we've been exploring for a couple of seasons now."

"I am thrilled to be on this show and to be a part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy,” said Palin.

What a crock.

  • They Chose Life
  • Bristol Palin and Her Baby

Bristol Palin has chosen life. And apparently fame.

By putting a teen mom in any popular entertainment medium, ABC Family is (indirectly if not overtly) celebrating the fact that she's a teen who got pregnant.

After all, Bristol Palin is known for exactly two things:

  1. Being the daughter of Sarah Palin
  2. Getting knocked up by Levi Johnston

Now her famous mom wants to utilize that fact to make Bristol a celebrity while espousing family values at the same time. It's as disgusting as it is laughable.

Not to mention the ridiculousness of Sarah's claims last week about her family being off limits. Guess that only applies if Family Guy takes shots at them, eh?

This isn't Bristol's first dubious attempt to have it both ways. Last year, she was named Candie's "Teen Pregnancy Ambassador." What does that even mean? Especially from a clothing line whose ads feature Britney Spears in booty shorts?

2008: The seeds of celebrity (and Tripp Johnston) are sown.

Apparently it matters not, because it's all about making money off THE MOST FAMOUS TEEN MOM EVER! Really, ABC Family? This is your marketing hook?

Altruism, this is not. If education and prevention are really your goals, start doing public service announcements or donating time and money to charity.

If the Palins want to shamelessly promote the Palins and teen pregnancy, great. But let's call it what it is - self-serving PR under the guise of "education."

We want to hear what you think: What is Bristol Palin's appearance on The Secret Life of the American Teenager going to accomplish?

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.
