Levi Johnston talks the talk, but won't walk the naked walk.

After all the hype, we won't be seeing Levi Johnston nude in Playgirl. At least not full-frontal style, despite what his manager, Tank Jones, promised us. Poor.

"[Levi] did not give 'full frontal' as his manager Tank [Jones] reported he would," Daniel Nardicio, a spokesman for Playgirl, told the New York Daily News.

Playgirl still insists that the "package" is sure to please:

"Although there may be glimpses, we did not get full on frontal nudity. But we're thrilled with the photos we got, and are confident people will love them."

So much for that "venture into porn," as Sarah Palin called it.

Speaking out on Oprah yesterday, Palin mocked Johnston's newfound fame, saying "I don't know if we call him Levi. I hear he goes by Ricky Hollywood now ... If that's the case, we don't want to mess up his gig he's got going."

Jones took issue with Palin's criticism of her would-be son-in-law, and described Levi Johnston's much-hyped photo shoot for Playgirl as "art," not porn.

"He came in this world naked. So all of a sudden it's dirty to take your clothes off?" Jones said. "It depends what you do once you take your clothes off."

The irony? Levi is only famous and receiving attention in the first place because of getting naked ... and really giving it to Bristol Palin without protection.

The former Alaska governor said she is disappointed at those who are "handling" Johnston and allowing him to speak "mistruths" about the Palin family.

"The premise of Levi having lived with Bristol is false. You take that foundational untruth and you can kind of measure all the other things he's saying."

"He's a teenager. I don't think he realizes quite yet what it is that he is being handled and orchestrated - for him to be participating in this," she said.

Who knows if Sarah knows what she is doing on any given day, since she's the one Going Rogue and all, but it's nice of her to express her concern.

Whose side are you on?

Don't expect Levi Johnston and Sarah Palin to settle their differences over turkey dinner this month. In fact, she'd probably rather give him this treatment.

The Playgirl model (day two of his nude photo shoot took place Friday) spoke about Sarah Palin's recent Thanksgiving invitation to Playgirl's editor-in-chief.

"He said 'you could tell by her laugh she was full of it,'" Playgirl Director of Marketing Daniel Nardicio said, calling it "a nice gesture but she didn't mean it."

Johnston said it would be beyond "awkward" should he actually show up.

Palin, the grandmother of Johnston's son Tripp, says on the pretaped November 16 Oprah Winfrey Show that her daughter's ex is still "part of the family."

She suggested he join her family for the traditional November family holiday. Levi Johnston's response? Now exactly holding his breath for a real invite.

Meanwhile, Thursday's Playgirl shoot "was fantastic," Johnston's manager Tank Jones said "People are going to see more of Levi than they thought."

"There was a hockey stick involved."

Now that we'll hold our breath for.

There was no goalie of any kind involved when Levi Johnston knocked up Bristol Palin. But he does wield a hockey stick in his much-anticipated Playgirl photo spread.

"The shoot was fantastic!" Johnston's manager, Tank Jones, said of Johnston's New York photo session, adding that the nude model wasn't nervous in the slightest.

"We're having a lot of fun with it," Jones teases.

How much did the Bristol Palin baby daddy reveal? "People are going to see more of Levi than thought," Jones says, confirming, "There was a hockey stick involved."

It's not over, either: a second Levi Johnston nude photo session takes place today. Jones, his spokesman, says "Part two is going to be fantastic. That's all I can say."

Levi Johnston cleans up nice. But will he look good naked?

Meanwhile, Johnston has no plans as yet to spend Thanksgiving with the Palins, despite Sarah Palin's comments on Oprah that the father of Tripp is "part of the family."

"Nobody put out an invitation. So we wouldn't want to act premature," Jones quipped.

The manager scoffed at Palin's suggestion that Levi is doing Playgirl for attention. "He's doing Playgirl because he wants to do Playgirl," Jones clarifies. And for money.

"A lot of famous people have done Playgirl: Jim Brown, Burt Reynolds, Mario Lopez."

Mario Lopez?

Motives aside, the Levi Johnston nude photos will run in January, and will be a boon for the naked rag. Says a rep: "Our subscriptions have gone through the roof!"

Oprah Winfrey has former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in the hot seat on Monday, and those hoping for a repeat of Carrie Prejean on Larry King will be disappointed. 

She's still talking about her teenage nemesis, her grandson's father, Levi Johnston, but unlike other recent interviews, Palin refused to get combative this time.

According to excerpts released today, Palin is asked if Johnston will be invited to their Thanksgiving dinner. "You know, that's a great question," Palin replies.

"It's lovely to think that he would ever even consider such a thing. Because, of course, you want - he is a part of the family and you want to bring him back into the fold and kind of under your wing. And he needs that, too, Oprah."

"I think [Levi Johnston] needs to know that he is always loved and that he has the most beautiful child and this can all work out for the best. It really can."

Sarah Palin ran for V.P. in 2008, but entertained even more in 2009.

Of Johnston's claims that she called her own baby retarded, Palin wisely says: "We don't have to keep going down this road of controversy all the time. We're not really into the drama. We have more important things to concentrate on."

Palin also did not seem enthusiastic about rehashing her notoriously awkward interview with Katie Couric during her bid for the Vice Presidency last fall.

She tells Winfrey she didn't think the sit-down wasn't a seminal, defining moment for her. "And neither did the campaign," she added. "The campaign said, 'This is what America needs to see and it was a good interview.'"

"And, of course, I'm thinking, 'If you thought that was a good interview, I don't know what a bad interview is,' because I knew it was a bad interview."

Fortunately, Oprah didn't ask about Levi's upcoming nude Playgirl spread. Now that would have really been a bad interview ... albeit entertaining.

Do you like Sarah Palin?

Here's a photo op for the ages: Levi Johnston, former Bristol Palin "fiance" turned Playgirl model, and Jon Gosselin, former reality star, in NYC's Times Square.

The occasion? The First Annual Douche Awards. They both cleaned up!

Just kidding, although they would have if it were a real event. Levi and Jon were set to appear on a panel for the syndicated entertainment show The Insider.

That's pretty much what Jon does every day of his life, but for Levi, who's been working out like a madman for his upcoming nude photo shoot, it was new.

Both of these guys have been assailed by their baby mamas lately.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who's actually Levi's baby mama's mama, said Johnston has a "desperate need for attention" for posing in Playgirl next month.

He recently filed for joint custody of son Tripp, which is sure to sit well with the Palins. He doesn't seem scared of the former Alaska chief executive, though.

Jon's estranged wife Kate has also slammed him for his antics.

Repeatedly. That banshee separated from the father of her eight children earlier this year, sending him into the greatest midlife crisis in American history.

Just one question remains: Who would you rather ...

Levi Johnston became quasi-famous after having unprotected sex with Bristol Palin in 2008, then parlayed that into his upcoming nude Playgirl spread.

Why shouldn't Sarah Palin's 19-year-old arch-nemesis, who recently said he was filing for legal custody of 10-month-old son Tripp, be honored for it?

The Alaska rascal and creator of masterful prose will be given a sex-themed award next week in New York by a site who likes to hand out such things.

Personally presenting the award? None other than Amber Lee Ettinger. Random.

To recognize Levi as a "pop culture star turned sex star," an adult site, Fleshbot, will dub Johnston its Crossover Star at the 1st Annual Fleshbot Awards.

The awards will be given out at the Box (fittingly) nightclub November 11 - just days before the Bristol Palin baby daddy's does his Playgirl photo shoot.

"We think it's awesome that he's posing for Playgirl," Fleshbot editor Lux Alptraum told E!, before reflecting, hilariously, on Levi's recent "career."

"It's quite a transition to go from the future son-in-law of the Republican V.P. nominee to modeling in a nude magazine that's marketed toward gay men."

"That's quite a leap to be making," she added. "We are very proud of Levi Johnston for being brave enough and confident enough to do this."

Aren't we all.

Still unclear is whether Johnston plans on showing everything that God gave him, though new reports suggest that he is literally gonna let it all hang out.

The man who Sarah Palin pretended was almost her son-in-law during her bid for the Vice Presidency in 2008 will be taking legal action to obtain joint custody of his child with her daughter, according to various reports.

Levi Johnston, 19, is the father of 10-month-old baby son Tripp with his ex-girlfriend Bristol Palin, also 19, the eldest daughter of the former Alaska chief exec.

The two were engaged to be married, at least according to her mom's publicist, during last year's campaign, but broke off their relationship earlier this year.

Johnston is seeking joint custody at the end of the month because the Palin family is allegedly making it difficult for him to see his son, he told The Insider.

He's also not mincing words when it comes to selling out Sarah, recently claiming to Vanity Fair that she called her baby retarded (he has Down Syndrome).

Levi Johnston became quasi-famous because of unprotected, premarital sex. Is it too much to ask for him to enjoy joint custody of the fruit born of that endeavor?

"It's not working. I'm done," the future Playgirl centerfold said of the current situation, which he deems unacceptable based on how little they're letting him see Tripp.

He says he has no choice but to fight back - and take her down if needed.

"It's going to have to go to court. They just pushed me over the edge."

We just hope master thespian William Shatner will read the text of Levi's court papers, and Sarah's obligatory press conference to respond to them for good measure.

The relationship between Johnston and the Palins was never exactly good, but has taken a particularly nasty turn in the last few weeks, with Johnston calling Sarah Palin a hypocrite, and Palin lambasting him for the nude Playgirl pictorial.

Whose side are you on?

Wednesday, The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien featured master thespian William Shatner reading Tweets from Levi Johnston, poetry-style, in a hilarious skit.

Well, it turns out the Twitter page they quoted from was a fake. Levi was not pleased at being portrayed as a racist pothead, and demanded Conan apologize.

He did so last night, saying: "I would like to personally apologize to Levi Johnston for misrepresenting him in any way. Levi is truly a great American. We wish him the best of luck as he trains for his upcoming naked photo shoot."

Conan then brought Shatner back out to make amends, and recite, in similar fashion, some actual verified quotes from Levi Johnston. Some of the gems:

  • "The first thing Sarah said to me at the hotel was 'you gotta cut your hair.' I told her I didn't want to. I had a mullet at the time."
  • "Guess what? I shot a big ass bear."
  • "If Sarah wanted food, then we'd get her something to eat. Like a Crunch-Wrapped Supreme from ... Taco Bell."
  • "I just get naked. That's what I do."

Classic. Here's William Shatner channeling his inner Levi last night ...

Most things sound better when master thespian William Shatner recites it over soothing, melodic percussion. Levi Johnston's Twitter page (real or fake) is no exception.

Levi is furious over a skit on last night's Tonight Show in which Levi came off looking like a moronic, racially insensitive pothead ... by virtue of his own Twitter page.

His alleged Twitter page, anyway. The attorney for the future Playgirl centerfold is claiming that the outrageous Tweets Conan O'Brien attributed to Levi are fake.

Conan introduced the skit referencing Shatner's reciting of Sarah Palin's inane farewell speech over the summer, and saying who better than to read Levi's Tweets?

"All real ... we did not make these up," Conan added.

Among the Tweets read poetry-style by Shatner: "Anybody know where I can get some good weed?" "Is it true that fat kids never get kidnapped?" "Whats the deal with the taxi drivers not speaking English, is there a law against it?"

And: "You know you're a celebrity when strangers want to see your penis. LM ... AO."

His lawyer, Rex Butler, is not LMAO. He  is demanding a retraction from NBC, as well as from Twitter, saying that "I think they have an obligation once something like this happens to make some kind of corrective measure."

NBC has yet to comment. Here's the hilarious video in question ...

UPDATE: Levi wussed out and didn't give us the full Johnston. But his Playgirl spread is now out and he's still very naked. Follow this link for Levi's nude pictures!


Looks like Levi Johnston wasn't kidding when he said on The Early Show yesterday that he had no intention of backing off in his crusade against Sarah Palin.

As we've talked about previously, the father of the former Alaska Governor's grandson is gonna pose for Playgirl. The only question was how nude he'd get.

Well, it's now confirmed we're getting the full Levi Johnston. Or something. We mean full, frontal nudity. Need us to draw you a picture? We really hope not.

Levi's manager, Tank Jones, already said he was 90 percent sure the baby daddy of Bristol Palin would take it all off, but he's now confirmed that final 10.

In the best press release ever, Jones simply wrote the following:

"Everything's gonna hang out. We're talking full Johnson."

Levi Johnston and Sarah Palin Photo

Levi Johnston is taking the gloves - and everything else - off. Sarah Palin ain't seen nothin' yet! This guy has no shame and nothing to lose. A dangerous combo.

He left out a letter there, but no complaints. Oh, and it gets better yet. Jones says Levi Johnston is gunning to shoot the Playgirl pictures on November 16.

That's the very same day Sarah Palin makes her much-touted, book-shilling appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. She'll definitely love that. Point, Levi!

Yesterday, Johnston caused quite a stir when he accused Palin of calling her son Trig retarded. Trig, 1, has Down Syndrome. Palin was far from pleased.

The ex-governor angrily fired back in a statement, but Levi was completely unfazed, ominously saying that he could say far worse things than that. Man.

As for the naked pics themselves, a Playgirl rep says of the shoot: "We're working on some athletic scene stuff for Levi: gyms, rinks - that sort of thing."

Hopefully he boxes with a Sarah Palin blow-up doll. That'd be all-time.

Whose side are you on?
