Not even 72 hours after reports surfaced about Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston getting back together, his sister Mercede has debuted her official site.

It could draw the wrath of Sarah Palin and brood, too - Mercede Johnston's new blog pledges to "answer all questions related to the Palin family."

One of her claims? Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston planned to conceive Tripp, the 18-month-old son they've spent much of the last year fighting over.

It was widely assumed this was an accident, but "During that time period, she and Levi were sexually active and trying to conceive," Mercede writes.

"As hard as it is for many of you to believe, they were indeed TRYING. Also there were rumors circulating around that she was already pregnant."

Levi and Mercede Johnston in simpler times.

We're not sure what she means by that exactly, but a source close to both Bristol and Levi says that Mercede's shocking claims are totally false.

The source also claimed that Mercede's blog is being backed by well-known Sarah Palin hater, Jesse Griffin of "The Immoral Minority" blog fame.

"Mercede was put up by Jesse Griffin to do this blog," the insider said. "He is a Palin hater and is most likely behind all of these comments."

"Levi would never comment on something like this and neither would Bristol. Mercede's claims have been contradicted by [Levi's] statements."

After an acrimonious and very public break-up, Bristol and Levi have mended their turbulent, icy relationship and recently got back together.

We'll see if that lasts after Mercede apparently decided to turn on them both for reasons unknown. What the heck is wrong with these people?!

Fake engagements, court battles, baby mama drama and sabotaging a former V.P. candidate in the press. That was the life of Levi Johnston for the past year.

Despite all of that, he and Bristol Palin just got back together!

The parents of 18-month-old Tripp are making it work after all, despite breaking off their engagement in March 2009 and a prolonged period of icy relations.

Things have thawed considerably between the young parents in recent months, and "Bristol and Levi are still very close," a source close to Bristol tells Us.

The eldest daughter to former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin is "on her own in Anchorage" and she and Levi "spend more time together than most people think."

The expectant parents before the 2008 Republican National Convention.

Asked for comment, Bristol Palin would say only that "Levi and me are co-parents of Tripp and we are actively working on being good parents together."

Levi added: "Nothing is more important than Tripp. We are taking active steps to cooperatively raise him, sharing the joys and challenges of parenthood."

Earlier this year, Bristol said Levi was "a stranger to me," while Johnston told Entertainment Tonight that the Palins were basically trying to cut him out.

Things have changed since then, the Bristol source says, noting that "Bristol is a great mom and cares for Tripp; [she] and Levi are raising him together."

We couldn't be happier. Hope she makes good at that new abstinence pledge, though - we know she can get pregnant, but give it a few years at least.

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

Bristol Palin and Tripp Johnston looking adorable.

"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!

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 ...

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.
