In the following clip from today's The Tyra Banks Show (airing today), Levi Johnston says ex-fiancee Bristol Palin - the mother of his 4-month-old son Tripp and the daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin - wants nothing to do with him.

We heard Ashley Biden is available, Levi.

"Some days we have a regular conversation without fighting," said Johnston, 19, who split with Bristol Palin, 18, in March after they welcomed Tripp in December.

"Most times, she's usually in a pretty bad mood. She's short. She doesn't want me around, I don't think," Levi told Banks. "She says that I can come see the baby, and that kind of thing, but won't let me take him anywhere."

On Friday, a rep for the Palins lashed out at Levi Johnston for talking to Banks about his sex life - specifically, he said Sarah Palin was aware he was boning Bristol and allowed it by letting them sleep in the same room at her home.

"We're disappointed that Levi and his family, in a quest for fame, attention and fortune, are engaging in flat-out lies, gross exaggeration, and even distortion of their relationship," the statement from the Palin family said.

"It is unfortunate that Levi finds it more appealing to exploit his previous relationship with Bristol than to contribute to the well being of the child."

Hey, dude's gotta make a buck and find a new girl to knock up somehow.

While Barack and Michelle Obama are meeting heads of state, giving rousing speeches and winning raves for their representation of America (and fashion) in Europe, Sarah Palin is dealing with important diplomatic matters of her own.

Specifically, the Alaska Governor is lashing out against Levi Johnston for blabbing on TV about having sex with Bristol, her 18-year-old daughter.

After taking about having sex with Bristol Palin - and implying Sarah Palin knew he was doing so - on The Tyra Banks Show, Levi, 19, the father of Bristol's baby – was slapped with a blistering response from Sarah and Bristol.

The Palin family rep said in a statement:

"Bristol did not even know Levi was going on the show. We are very disappointed that Levi and his family, in a quest for fame, attention, and fortune, are engaging in flat-out lies, gross exaggeration, and even distortion of their relationship."

"Bristol's focus remains on raising Tripp, completing her education, and advocating abstinence. It is unfortunate that Levi finds it more appealing to exploit his previous relationship with Bristol than to contribute to the well being of the child."

Damn, you pretty much got served there, Levi.

The statement ends, saying, "Bristol realizes now that she made a mistake in her relationship and is the one taking responsibility for their actions." Owned again!

On the show, which airs Monday, April 6, Johnston tells Tyra Banks that he believes Sarah Palin knew he and Bristol were having sex when they lived under her roof.

The couple, who were high school sweethearts, were forced to claim that they planned to wed after graduation – but ended up splitting earlier this year.

In other Palin family news, the half sister of Sarah's husband Todd Palin was accused of breaking into the same Wasilla, Alaska, house twice to steal money.

Diana Palin, 35, was charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor criminal trespass and theft stemming from two break-ins. Solid week all around.

In an interview scheduled to air Monday on The Tyra Banks Show, teen baby daddy Levi Johnston admits that he and Bristol Palin were allowed to share a room at Sarah Palin's Alaska home even though she probably knew he was doing her daughter.

"I'm pretty sure she probably knew," says Johnston. "Moms are pretty smart."

Well, most of them are. This is ... forget it.

Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin, 19 and 18 respectively, called off their fake engagement in March. They welcomed son Tripp Easton Mitchell on December 27.

The self-proclaimed redneck, who showed off his tattoo of Bristol's name on his ring finger - says they practiced safe sex "most of the time." That's a relief.

His sister, Mercede Johnston, also admitted on the program that their family was under gag order during Sarah Palin's campaign for the vice presidency.

That must have put a dent in ma Sherry Johnston's drug-dealing biz.

"We were supposed to say that all questions need be brought up to the McCain campaign," Mercede said. "Other than that we had to say no comment."

Last month, Johnston said he needs to grow up before wedding Bristol Palin.

"It's just us not, me not being mature enough, or something, and having a kid and thinking ... it could be better for us to separate for a while," he said.

As for reconciling with Bristol, he said, "We'll see, we'll see how it is. We'll just remain friends for now. We're both cool with that decision, and we'll see."

Levi Johnston, the former fiancé of Bristol Palin and father to her baby son, Tripp Easton Michael Johnston, has had to grow up fast, but says in a new interview that he needs to "mature" before he considers getting married.

Having unprotected sex as a teenager is all good, though.

"It's just us not ... me not being mature enough, or something, and having a kid and thinking ... it could be better for us to separate for a while," Johnston eloquently said in an interview at his Alaska home with Good Morning America.

As for whether a future reconciliation with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's eldest daughter is possible, Levi said, "We'll see how it is ... We'll just remain friends for now. We're both cool with that decision, and we'll see."

Sarah Palin's bid for Vice President and Levi's bid to be an upstanding, married citizen both fell short ... but don't rule out a second shot for either in a couple of years.

Of their breakup that happened "a week, two weeks" ago, Levi Johnston admitted, "We were just, we were in a fight. And trying to see if we can make things work. But this is what it kind of ended up turning into."

Wasilla High School student Bristol Palin, 18, gave birth to Tripp on December 27, and Johnston says he sees his boy regularly – and it has changed his life.

"I'd give anything for [Tripp], to be with him," he said. "[There are] a lot of changes when you're a father, when you hold him for the first time, you know. I don't do a lot of things I used to anymore, I'll tell you that."

He added: "Yeah, [I'm] growing up a lot. So, it's fun. It's good times." Asked if he felt any pressure from the Palin family, Johnston said, "No, not at all."

Bristol Palin is opening up about (or at least confirming) her split from fiance and baby daddy Levi Johnston, but disputes some accounts of their breakup.

"It is true that Levi and I are no longer together," Bristol told Us Weekly in a statement through the Palin family spokesperson, Meghan Stapleton.

"However, I am absolutely committed to being the best mom to Tripp Easton."

Levi Johnston, 19, said Wednesday that he and Bristol, 18, called off their engagement as soon as Sarah Palin's Vice Presidential bid ended "a while ago."

They welcomed son Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston on December 27.

BABY DADDY: Levi Johnston was a surprise hit at the Republican National Convention in August, but sadly, he and Bristol Palin have split up. No one saw it coming.

Bristol Palin also noted that this week's Star Magazine article about the couple's split - which quotes Levi's sister Mercede Johnston, and insinuates that Bristol considers Levi white trash - makes many false claims and is a shameless excuse for news:

"As for the tabloid article, there are many inaccuracies within it. Unfortunately, my family has seen many things in these tabloids as many try to 'cash in' on the Palin name. Sometimes that greed clouds good judgment and the truth."

She's probably right, but that's true of tabloids and every quasi-famous name, and a lot of people would probably be psyched if the Palins were never heard from again.

In any case, here's wishing Bristol Palin a healthy second pregnancy when Levi knocks her up again in a year. Sure, he's W.T., but his rugged good looks are irresistable.

Yesterday's report in Star magazine turned out to be correct. Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have called off their engagement, Johnston confirmed to the AP.

Johnston, 19, said the couple decided to split a while ago.

He did not offer more details.

Bristol Palin - the 18-year-old daughter of Alaska governor (and former Republican vice presidential nominee) Sarah Palin - and Johnston welcomed their son, Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston, on December 27. The couple planned to wed this year.

Admitting that getting knocked up as a teen wasn't ideal, she told Fox News last month that "I hope people learn from my story. It's so much easier if you're married, have a house and career. It's not a situation you want to strive for."

In the same interview, Bristol Palin - currently a student at Wasilla High School - touted Levi Johnston as a "hands-on dad." Yesterday, though, when rumors of their split surfaced, she supposedly described him as "white trash."

Speaking of W.T., his mom, Sherry Johnston, was arrested in December and charged with six felony counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance. She was allegedly caught dealing OxyContin, a.k.a. hillbilly heroin.

The teenage pregnancy and love affair that rocked last year's presidential race is over, at least according to unreliable celebrity news magazine Star.

That publication claims Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter, Bristol Palin, 18, has officially ditched her white trash baby daddy, Levi Johnston, 19.

Levi's sister, Mercede Johnston - who is also referred to as Mercedes Johnston by some publications, and was the girl mistaken for Bristol in that classic batch of girl-on-girl and gun pics surfacing last summer - is Star's supposed source.

She says Levi's life in in Wasilla, Alaska, is far from pretty.

"Bristol's just crazy. That's the nicest way I can put it," Mercede said.

Bristol reportedly broke up with Levi Johnston more than a month ago, and is not attending school or letting her baby daddy see their young son.

According to Mercedes, Bristol Palin has almost completely cut Levi Johnston out of her life - and that of their two-month-old son, Tripp. No word on how Tripp's uncle Trig feels about all of this. Or about being named Trig.

"Levi tries to visit Tripp every single day, but Bristol makes it nearly impossible," his sister allegedly said. "She tells him he can't take the baby to our house because she doesn't want him around 'white trash'! She treats him so badly!"

Worse yet, Mercede says, the former V.P. candidate backs Bristol's treatment of Levi. "I used to love Sarah," Mercede says. "But I've lost respect for her."

This implies she had some to begin with, which may be the most surprising thing in this piece. We just hope Bristol's teenage fornicating days aren't over.

Do you buy this story? Will Bristol be knocked up again by 2010? Will she and Levi get married? Have you ever hunted wolves from a helicopter?

Yesterday, Bristol Palin spoke out on teenage fornicating and the inevitability thereof. But in the same interview, she also talked about less controversial matters.

Baby Tripp Johnston has been described as a "bundle of joy" by grandma Sarah Palin, while Bristol says she loves "just seeing him smile and stuff. It's awesome."

But like many babies, Tripp – born December 27 – can be a handful.

Often, the little guy is up half the night, Bristol Palin, 18, told FOX, and like millions of babies across these United States, he keeps his parents awake.

"Tripp's a little fussy," a Palin family friend said.

Bristol – now living at her parents' house in Wasilla, Alaska – has plenty of help. Sister Piper Palin, 7, pitches in, fetching diapers and making bottles.

Bristol said her parents and aunts also assist, and Bristol's maternal grandmother, Sally Heath (mother of Sarah Palin), lives nearby and baby-sits.

But the new mom's biggest assist comes from fiancé Levi Johnston, 18, a former high school hockey player now working as an apprentice electrician.

"He has been staying at [the Palins' home] a lot with Bristol and helping her out," a pal of Levi's tells People magazine. "He really likes being a father."

In the first week after Tripp's birth, Levi Johnston moved in with the Palin family, Levi's mom, Sherry Johnston (who's facing felony drug charges) said.

Lately, he's been back and forth between the Palins' and his mother's home about 15 minutes away. Sometimes, he brings along Tripp to visit grandma.

"Sherry sees Tripp," says a relative. "But it's not super often."

Between bottle feedings and diaper changes, Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are also both focused on completing their high school course work.

We don't know if she'd shoot wolves out of a helicopter, or refer to a progressive tax system as "socialist," but Bristol Palin appears far more grounded in reality than her mother on at least one topic:

Teenage sex.

Bristol Palin, Nude Tripp Johnston

While Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has attempted to pass legislation that teaches abstinence in school, Bristol appeared on Fox News this week and said that such a view is "not realistic at all."

What else did the new mother of Tripp Johnston have to say to Greta Van Susteren? Various excerpts, along with staff commentary, appear below:

On getting knocked up: "Everyone should wait 10 years.. I hope people learn from my story... It's so much easier if you're married, have a house and career."

On having Tripp: "It was my choice to have the baby. It doesn't matter what my mom's views are on it. It was my decision, making me a model for the pro-choice argument, but don't tell my mom that, as such logic would confuse her belief that pro-choice equals pro-death."

Bristol Palin held son Tripp during a Fox News interview in which she scoffed at the notion that you can prevent teens from having sex.

On Levi Johnston as a father: He's a "hands-on dad, especially since he was forced to quit his job on an oil field because my mother may have illegally helped him land it."

On marrying Levi: "Eventually we'd like to get married, but my mom isn't a candidate for Vice President anymore, so we can stop pretending like this was the plan all along."

On being a mother:
"I love it, just seeing him smile and stuff. It's awesome."

Governor Palin shows up near the conclusion of the interview, holding little Tripp, and says:  "Hey, life happens when you spend all your time giving your children goofy names instead of teaching them about contraception."

Alaska Governor and former Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin welcomed her first grandchild this week, but admitted that she felt both fear and despair when she first learned that her teenage daughter Bristol was expecting.

"We are over the moon with the arrival of this healthy, beautiful baby," Sarah Palin said in a statement dated December 31 and posted Friday. "The road ahead for this young couple will not be easy, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy."

Brad, Angelina and Six Kids!

Baby Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston was born to Bristol Palin and her boyfriend Levi Johnston on December 27. Both Bristol and Levi are 18 years old.

Bristol Palin's pregnancy was revealed shortly after her mother was named as John McCain's running mate in August, and became a campaign talking point.

Sarah Palin, a devout and pro-life Christian, always put a positive spin on her daughter's pregnancy, but in the statement issued this week, admitted to feeling afraid after learning she was to become a grandmother this year.

"When Bristol and [Levi Johnston] first told us the shocking news that she was pregnant, to be honest, we all at first looked at the situation with some fear and a bit of despair," Palin said. "But isn't it just like God to turn those circumstances into such an amazing, joyful blessing when you ask Him to help you through?"

In the same statement, Bristol Palin said becoming a teen mother was "not ideal" and spoke out against teen pregnancy.

"Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with - this isn't ideal," she said before thanking her "supportive family which is dealing with this together."

Bristol Palin will return to high school next week to earn the final credit that she needs to graduate, according to the statement. It was unclear if she intended to pursue any higher education upon completing high school.

Levi Johnston will finish high school as he works as an electrician apprentice. His mom, Sherry Johnston, was recently arrested on felony drug charges.
