Levi Johnston has his work cut out if he wants to be mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. Current officeholder Verne Rupright says he needs to start by keeping his clothes on.

If Levi really wants the office once held by Sarah Palin, who went on to become Alaska's Worst Governor Ever and a professional celebrity, Verne has some advice:

"Get your high school diploma and keep your clothes on," said Rupright, who has a B.A. and J.D. to his name, when contacted by celebrity gossip site TMZ.

"Voters like it that way."

  • Playgirl Cover

We know Levi Johnston dispatches of clothes awfully well, but can he oust Verne Rupright from the mayor's office in his hometown of Wasilla, Alaska?

The 20-year-old Levi Johnston, who just broke up with Bristol Palin, announced he'll be running for Mayor of Wasilla next year as part of his new reality show.

Might he pose a serious challenge to Rupright?

The Vietnam war veteran, who's been in public service longer than Johnston has been alive, says, "I don't know if I could handle those responsibilities when I was Levi's age. I was still trying to figure out how to put on my uniform."

He's got a tough battle ahead. We don't see anyone named Palin casting a ballot in his favor, and even his own mom, Sherry, can't vote for him after her felony drug dealing conviction last year. But it should be fun to watch.

Would you elect Levi mayor?

Before his second broken engagement with Bristol Palin in as many years, there were whispers that Levi Johnston was planning a new reality show with her.

Those rumors were half true.

Bristol will be nowhere insight, but the former Playgirl cover model will soon be starring in a new show entitled Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office.

The premise: Levi Johnston is running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska - the post famously held by Bristol's mother, Sarah Palin, before she became Governor!

No word if Brittani Senser will be deputy mayor, but it looks like his for office is actually happening. Executive producer Canaan Rubin says in a statement:

"The docu-soap will follow the ever controversial, headline making, matinee idol, handsome father of one as he embarks on a run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska."

"It will chronicle a 'no-holds-barred' period in Levi’s tumultuous life; co-raising his son Tripp, looking for love, and taking care of business for fellow Wasillians."

"He will give us a real inside look into who he is as a father, a skilled hunter, an avid dirt biker, and of course his journey down the road of small town politics."

"Levi Johnston thinks he can take the office by representing the real citizens of Wasilla." The statement ends: "If elected, Levi promises to serve his full term."

That's a shot at Sarah Palin, who resigned Alaska Governor last summer to become a professional celebrity. Tank Jones will serve as Levi’s campaign manager.

Shooting is underway: "They shot pre-production on the pilot today on Rodeo Drive [in Beverly Hills]." Ooh, the real Wasillans aren't gonna like that one bit.

Would you elect Levi Johnston mayor?

Levi Johnston's brief second engagement with Bristol Palin recently ended, reportedly thanks in part to his participation in a new Brittani Senser music video.

Whether or not the video for her song "After Love" is based on or mocks Levi's relationships with the Palins is disputed, but he definitely stars in the thing.

He also accompanied her to the Teen Choice Awards last night.

Levi's appearance with Brittani, coupled with Bristol Palin dumping his ass, is likely to spark rumors of his romantic connection with the up-and-coming singer.

The jury is still out, but rumors of dalliances with exes Lanesia Garcia and Briana Plum reportedly caused tension with Bristol as well. Watch out, Brittani ...

Johnston tells People that despite breaking up with Bristol, they're on good terms: "Oh, we're friends. The ring's off, but we're friends, so everything's good."

"You know, it's tough," he says of the split following their re-engagement. "It's not something that I wanted, but life goes on. I just take it one step at a time."

He adds that he's still going to make it a priority to spend time with his and Bristol's 19-month-old son, Tripp: "Oh yeah, yeah. We're still co-parenting," he says.

Think Brittani would make a good stepmom?

Bristol Palin dumped Levi Johnston in large part because of her two-time ex-fiance's dalliances (real or rumored) with exes Lanesia Garcia and Briana Plum.

But a music video he was set to film for Brittani Senser's song "After Love" may have played a role in breaking off the engagement, and you sorta see why.

Brittani's music video involves a girlfriend's overbearing and manipulative mother, implications of blackmail, a forced breakup, a naked love romp, and so forth.

Sarah and Bristol Palin believe the video is directly (and inaccurately) based on them, and Levi was mocking the former Alaska Governor by participating.

Is that even true, though? Here are the details:

"Levi has just been stopped by a police officer," the script for the "After Love" video reads. "He didn't do anything wrong. This doesn't seem to matter though as the authorities basically harass Levi and provoke him to react."

Poor, unsuspecting Levi is then yanked from his car, searched and then, despite him being clean, is handcuffed and tossed in the back of a patrol car.

Levi, the police officer and the evil mother figure are later captured in an empty parking lot, setting up the blackmail portion of Brittani Senser's vid.

"Levi starts to yell at Brittani's mother," the script reads. "She just throws a thick manila envelope on the hood of the car. She tells him to open it."

"He opens it and immediately his face goes pale."

Possible parallels, sure. But is that really something to get worked up about? There's also a modest Levi-Brittani naked cuddle session, of course ...

"Levi strokes Brittani's hair, they intertwine fingers, they laugh, she kisses his shoulder, he runs his hand gently down her back," the script says.

Responsible for Bristol Palin dumping Levi or not, Senser supports her music video man - he will accompany her to the Teen Choice Awards Sunday.

"It's over. I broke up with him." - Bristol Palin on Levi Johnston

After shocking most observers, her own family included, by getting back together with the father of her 19-month-old son, the daughter of former GOP V.P. candidate Sarah Palin confirms that she's broken it off with the dude again.

They are now 0-for-2 at the whole engagement thing.

Bristol Palin says that the relationship soured on July 14, the very same day they announced their marriage intentions to the world via Us Weekly.

As luck would have it, that was the day she learned:

  • That he might have fathered a baby with Lanesia Garcia (he didn't)
  • That Levi may also have been putting it to Briana Plum (unclear)

BRIEFLY HAPPY TIMES: Failed engagements of 2010 and 2008, respectively.

In any case, Palin tearfully told People about feeling heartbroken, humiliated and trapped while Levi acted cool. "There was no remorse," she says.

"The final straw was him flying to Hollywood for what he told me was to see some hunting show but come to find out it was that music video mocking my family," she says. "He's just obsessed with the limelight and I got played."

That will do it every time. Bristol Palin has already moved back into her parents' home in Alaska. For her part, Sarah Palin said in a statement:

"I wish for Bristol to be able to move forward in life with her same forgiving, gracious, optimistic spirit, but from henceforth she'll know to trust but verify. Bristol is strong, she is independent, and she knows what is right for her son."

Bristol says she's not giving up hope of two-parent home for Tripp ... but this is most likely the last chance she'll give that jackass Levi.

It looks like the second engagement of Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston is off, but that the rumor of him knocking up his ex-girlfriend is not the reason.

His flirting with another ex-girlfriend is!

Bristol, 19, called off engagement #2 to Levi, 20, last week following a huge fight over one of his ex-girlfriends - and we don't mean Lanesia Garcia.

Garcia was outed as Levi's possible second baby mama this week, but new reports say that the Playgirl model is not the father of her unborn child.

Luckily for our boy, he wasn't the one among the "three potential fathers" to have impregnated Lanesia during the probable week of conception.

But Bristol Palin still has beef with him - and Briana Plum.

  • Levi Johnston Playgirl Picture

Levi Johnston apparently got naked a lot in between his two engagements to Bristol Palin, and we're not even talking about his Playgirl photo shoot for once.

"Lanesia and Levi have dated off and on over the past few years but he's not the father of that baby," says a source to E! Online. "Lanesia's other ex-boyfriend is the father. She's not the reason that [Bristol and Levi] broke it off."

That would be Levi's other ex, Briana: "There was an interview with her and Bristol wasn't happy about things she said. There was also some picture on Facebook of him and Briana and Bristol just said, ‘Let's hold off on the engagement.'"

Neither Palin nor Johnston have confirmed this, but the parents of 19-month-old Tripp just got engaged again a few weeks ago, landing them on the cover of Us Weekly amid rumors of shopping a reality show featuring their young family.

Guess even a huge paycheck can't keep some fake relationships intact.

Can Bristol and Levi still make it work?

Already famous for impregnating Bristol Palin two summers ago, Levi Johnston now finds himself embroiled in another baby scandal, according to reports.

The National Enquirer says Levi may have knocked up one of his old girlfriends during the period of estrangement between his two engagements to Bristol.

Levi and Bristol just got back together and engaged, ostensibly out of love and a desire to raise son Tripp together, but also to make some serious loot.

But if his ex-girlfriend, Lanesia Garcia, is really pregnant with his child pregnant - and she believes Levi is the daddy - that could be a tough obstacle.

Of course, it's still very much unclear if the child was sired by the Playgirl model. To put it nicely, Lanesia apparently gets around ... like a record.

BABY DADDY RELOADED? Levi better hope he shot blanks this time.

“Levi insists the baby isn’t his, but no one really knows,” a source said. “Levi is one of three possible fathers with Lanesia the probably week of conception.”

Three in one week? Wow, she sounds like a girl who really has her act together. Guess there's not a lot to do in Alaska ... well, besides Lanesia Garcia.

Still, friends of Bristol Palin say she is “heartbroken” after learning her fiancé might become a baby daddy with another girl, Radar Online reports today.

A Palin family rep says that “no official decision has been made” about the future of the couple, who are now communicating only “by text message.”

We can't wait until Sarah gets on Twitter to comment on this. Her critique of Obama for going on The View this week will seem tame by comparison.

Bristol Palin is one of the most famous teenagers in the country.

She's the daughter of a Presidential candidate and an unwed mother who isn't just marrying the guy that knocked her up and publicly bashed her family for months on end - she's profiting from the arrangement by selling her story to supermarket tabloids!

Say what you want about Bristol - and, trust us, THG has - but she's the perfect candidate for a reality TV show.

Still, Bethenny Frankel claims she doesn't see the appeal.

Bristol Photograph

Bethenny Frankel thinks viewers are interested in her life, but not that of Bristol Palin. She may be more delusional than Bristol's mother.

"If it was her mom getting married or remarried it would be interesting," Frankel said to E! News yesterday. "If it was Sarah was raising the baby, maybe. But what's the deal with the two of them?

"I don't know what they are and I don't even know who they are. I don't get it. And it would be too awkward to watch them in something L.A. because they don't belong there."

Someone sounds awfully defensive. Frankel can't honestly believe that in this day and age, where anyone with a pulse signs on for a reality show (Mario Lopez?!? Aubrey O'Day?!?), Bristol and Levi wouldn't be the ideal stars of a series. As depressing as that may be.

Let's turn this question over to the readers: Who would you prefer to watch?

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston recently got engaged. Again.

While we don't doubt that the parents of 18-month-old son Tripp are genuine in their feelings for each other, they're clearly milking the reconciliation for all it's worth, even putting celebrity gossip coverage ahead of family.

In a poignant sit-down with Us Weekly, Bristol Palin reveals that her mother Sarah Palin "doesn't really approve" of her surprise engagement to Levi.

Perhaps because she wasn't told beforehand? Just a guess.

"She's apprehensive and concerned. She doesn't want to see me get hurt again," says Bristol. "My mom is not 100 percent backing us up right now."

How did Bristol and Levi break the news to Sarah? Over the phone.

"She knew Levi and I had been talking, but she wanted to know if Levi was really sincere about this," says Bristol, admitting Us knew before her folks.

"I told her we were working on our relationship for Tripp, and she told me, 'Actions speak louder than words.' She's going to wait to see if he changes."

"People are more worried for me than excited for me," she confesses.

Sarah Palin's feud with Levi is infamous, and her feelings evident in a vapid statement not congratulating them, but saying "Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives."

Follow the jump for a video of the magazine's interview with the probably soon-to-be newlyweds. WARNING: It's easily a 9.5 out of 10 on the Cheese Meter. We can only imagine with their future reality show is going to be like:

Levi Johnston's feud with Sarah Palin was well documented.

We'll see if his own mother makes that look like child's play.

The Playgirl model’s mom, Sherry, and his sister, Mercede Johnston, are not pleased at the way in which they learned of Levi and Bristol's second engagement.

That would be via celebrity gossip publications ... naturally.

“You would think that a normal family would call you and say, ‘We’re getting married.’ We found out through the media, which is heartbreaking and rude,” Mercede, who recently started up an anti-Palin blog, told Inside Edition.

Hard to argue with that, MJ.

Johnston, Sherry

After first hearing about her son’s decision to walk down the aisle in a tabloid magazine, drug dealer Sherry even fears she won't be welcome at the nuptials.

“I would be absolutely devastated if I wasn’t invited to the wedding it would be the last straw. They should elope if they can’t have both the Johnstons and the Palins together. But don’t leave us out of it. That would kill me,” she says.

Speaking of the Sarah Palin, she must have been too busy making up words and comparing herself to Shakespeare, because she was out of the loop as well.

She said in a vapid statement about the news: "Bristol at 19 is now a young adult. We obviously want what's best for our children. Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our lives."

What do you think? Will it last?
