Levi Johnston is apparently one of the 19 people who have seen Bristol Palin's new reality show, in which she lets their three-year-old son Tripp run amok.

Johnston, who is about to be a dad for the second time with Sunny Oglesby, is appalled at seeing his son talk back, curse, and show no respect to elders.

Thus, he's decided to take action and seek full custody. Seriously.

Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin

Remember when this happened? Hilarious.

For the 99.99999 percent of you who haven't seen it, Bristol has had her hands full parenting. See Tripp's f-bomb / gay slur for one classic example.

During that episode, Bristol Palin admits, "I'm doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp." Her former fiance apparently agrees, and wants custody NOW.

Levi claims he is totally "disgusted" by his son's language and behavior and feels his son is on a "downward spiral" and getting "no real parenting."

Levi tells TMZ that Tripp "deserves a better family" than what Bristol and the rest of the Palins are providing, and that "I love my son more than anything."

"I will do whatever it takes to make sure he is raised the right way."

Levi dropped by the courthouse in Wasilla, Alaska to pick up all the necessary paperwork to obtain full custody of Tripp; he plans to file it ASAP.

The two sides have traded many barbs in recent years, with Levi claiming the Palins cut him off from Tripp and Bristol calling him a deadbeat dad.

She's been criticized for re-joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars, among many other things (Tripp's f-bomb) lately, but Derek Hough's got her back.

The three-time pro champion supports Bristol Palin - who said her return to the show is God's plan - for competing on DWTS even if it means bad press.

"Unfortunately with the Palin drama and crazy entertainment it's brought to the United States, I suppose it comes with the territory," Hough told E!

"But I think," he continued, "Good for her. Good for her to put herself out there because it's really easy to kind of hibernate and just to disappear."

"She's saying, 'I'm going to do my thing and if you don't like it, then fine!'"

Calling DWTS a "fun gig," Bristol also said, "You guys, the media, you will all talk about me whether I'm in my little Alaska life or doing this."

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who made news Friday for her non-subtle dining at Chick-fil-A, has vocally defended her daughter as well.

Thirteen former contestants will compete on the first edition of Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars. Their partners will be revealed August 13.

What do you think of Bristol Palin returning to DWTS?

Bristol Palin will make her return to Dancing with the Stars this fall, as the reality TV star has been included on that show's first-ever All-Star cast.

What drew her back to the ballroom? Not attention or money or any request made by ABC, Palin told reporters today at the Television Critics Association press tour. It was all The Big Guy Upstairs.

Bristol Palin Shakes It

“God provides opportunities like this for me," Bristol said. "It’s a positive, active show. It’s going to be awesome."

But what if - that same God, please forbid! - Palin gets aligned with a gay partner. Considering her view on marriage, won't that be a problem?

“I like gays,” Bristol said. “I’m not a homophobic. Just because I’m for traditional marriage... I don’t hate anybody. People will make up things about me. I’m going to go dance and have fun. It’s not about politics, it’s not about traditional marriage. It’s about dancing. That’s all I have to say about it.”

Hey, like a grown, professional woman once said: haters are going to hate.

With Bristol Palin under fire for the recent word choice of son Tripp on the latest episode of her Lifetime reality show, Fox News contributor Sarah Palin has come to her daughter's defense.

"Haters are going to hate," Palin told Salon at an NBC cocktail party on Tuesday, adding of Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp: “I think it’s clever, it’s absolutely real and I’m proud of the girls.”

Palin, Sarah

Despite the presence of cameras, her increased level of fame and the six-figure salary Bristol is banking from the series, Sarah Palin insists the program does not encourage young women to give birth.

"Her show today I think is very positive, it’s very realistic in terms of showing what single motherhood really is,” Palin said. “It’s not like the Teen Mom  — partyin’, woo-hoo! – fun, glamorizing single motherhood."'

We know we say this often, but: WHAT THE HECK IS SARAH PALIN TALKING ABOUT?

Has she ever seen Teen Mom? Debate all you want over whether these girls should be covering magazines and thrust into the spotlight, but that show on its own features nothing but crying children and ugly arguments with boyfriends/parents.

It also depicts teenagers who are struggling to hold jobs and attend classes while trying to raise children... without a stable, ultra wealthy family offering support.

Palin once said she is knowledgeable about foreign affairs because she can see Russia from Alaska. But this may be her most ridiculous statement yet.

Bristol Palin wants to make it clear: her son has a potty mouth, not a homophobic mouth.

Following a clip from her reality show that made the Internet rounds yesterday and certainly appeared as if three-year old Tripp Palin referred to his aunt with a gay slur, Bristol has taken to her blog and explained the situation.

"As I've said before, I sometimes struggle to raise Tripp. However, he does NOT use slurs.. Let me be clear. I'm not proud of what he did say. Sadly, he used a different 'f word.'"

Life's a Tripp showrunner Matt Lutz backs up this account, while Bristol - being a Palin - couldn't open her online mouth without taking a shot at Democrats.

"I do oppose gay marriage, as I've written about before... I guess the temptation to label my three year old son is just too great for the lefty papers to resist."

Either that, or possibly viewers considered Bristol's history with homophobia and drew a not-so-far-fetched conclusion.

No one watches Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp on Lifetime.

So the attention-starved daughter of a failed Vice Presidential Candidate and less-than-one-term Governor was probably hoping the following clip would not create any kind of stir.

But on last night's episode, three-year old Tripp was being disciplined by his mother and his aunt and responded to their attempts by lashing out... with a gay slur.

Watch now and try to decide which is the most appalling: Tripp actually knowing the word; Bristol laughing over his use of it; or Bristol's earlier comment about "God watching," for which she also could not keep a straight face:

We wonder: where might Tripp Palin have learned this language?

UPDATE: Showrunner Matt Lutz tells Gawker that Tripp dropped the F bomb, not the F word used for a gay slur. You can watch the video and try to decipher for yourself.

Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp is so unpopular, it can't even beat a RERUN of Dance Moms on Lifetime. So it's been pushed to 11 p.m., according to reports.

Lifetime will now be airing a new Dance Moms episode at 9 p.m. Tuesdays, followed by a repeat at 10 p.m. in Bristol's old slot, then Palin afterward.

The season premiere of Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp aired June 19 to abysmal ratings and worse reception from critics. It may be the worst show ever.

Bristol Palin Book Signing

It eked out a total audience of 726,000 viewers, many of whom probably hated it pretty bad, and a meager 0.2 rating in the key 18-49 demographic.

The show follows the daughter of former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin as she lives in an L.A. mansion and volunteers for charity.

Bristol Palin also rides a mechanical bull and so forth.

She brings along little Tripp, of course, her son by Levi Johnston, who turned down money to appear on the show because it's too bad for even him.

What's more, Kyle Massey, Bristol's former friend and DWTS co-star, is suing Lifetime claiming he created the idea and was screwed out of the project.

You might not want to claim credit for this debacle, K.

Bristol Palin is saving herself for marriage, she says.

After she's already had a kid, but you know, live and learn. Despite seemingly being the worst-ever abstinence advocate for obvious reasons, she's determined to promote that cause, saying that being a teen mom was way too hard.

“My sister Willow is 17, and when I was her age, I was eight months pregnant, and I look at her and I think, ‘Holy cow, I was just a baby!’” she reflects.

“I don’t care what your background is, it’s so hard.”

Now 21, Bristol Palin is determined to walk down the aisle before she even contemplates having another child - or even consummating relations with a man.

“Gino and I are going to wait until marriage,” she says of Giacinto “Gino” Paoletti, her boyfriend of several years. “I’m doing what’s best for me."

"It’s between me and God, and I know it’s right.”

Bristol, whose new reality show Life's a Tripp premiered this week to terrible reviews and ratings, beams when she says “I have the cutest kid in the world.”

On the flip side, “Since I have this platform, I want to use it for good ... I want to let girls know that this isn’t ideal, this isn’t fun, this isn’t easy.”

By pledging abstinence, Bristol Palin is ...

Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp was not a trip taken by many.

Ratings for the premiere of Lifetime‘s new reality show were as bad as the quality on screen, drawing an underwhelming 726,000 total viewers, Deadline reports.

The series starring Sarah Palin’s daughter, which aired against MTV powerhouse Teen Mom, fell dramatically from its lead-in, Dance Moms, which drew 1.8 million.

Dance Moms also posted 992,000 watchers in the 18-49 age range, whereas Life’s A Tripp drew only 250,000 ... on top of its universally negative reviews.

Bristol and Tripp

The point of the show is very much unclear, but it will continue to follow Bristol Palin and her son every Tuesday until Lifetime mercifully pulls the plug.

Levi Johnston probably made the right move in turning down a chance to be on this ... you don't want to lower yourself to the entertainment basement.

Levi Johnston was reportedly offered $10,000 to appear on his ex-fiancee's new reality show, Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp, but declined, according to a new report.

As such, Bristol Palin has refused to let her baby daddy see their son.

“Levi saw Tripp twice in January and shortly after that, Bristol’s people offered him about $10,000 to appear on one episode [of her show],” Sunny Oglesby says.

Yes, Sunny Oglesby ... Levi's current pregnant girlfriend.

“It’s clear they thought it would boost the ratings, but Levi wants nothing to do with it,” Sunny Oglesby, seven months pregnant, said of the show.

Sarah Palin’s daughter subsequently turned on Levi Johnston out of spite, Sunny claims, adding that Levi is working hard to support and see the boy.

“Bristol got so angry after he refused that she hasn’t let Levi see or talk to Tripp since,” she alleges, “She’s ignored Levi’s pleas to see his son."

"It got to the point where she simply changed her number."

Regarding his new family, Sunny says Levi is now officially done with the showbiz: “He’s through with Hollywood and happy to be back home in Alaska.”
