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 a new interview, Todd Palin says the $150,000 spent on clothes and beauty services for his wife, Alaska Governor and vanquished Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign was "out of our control."

"She never went to Saks, any of that stuff," he says in Men's Journal. "You come into a campaign late, you put all your trust into the team, you got people who are working on VP ops for a long time, and we're just focused on debate prep."

"I couldn't give a rat's [expletive] about clothes," Todd Palin continues. "Please. I mean these are my Sunday go-to-meeting jeans!"

Sarah and John McCain came under fire after it was revealed thousands of dollars were spent to dress her family - $75,062 at Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, $49,425 at Saks Fifth Avenue and $4,902 at upscale men's store Atelier, etc.

The lavish shopping sprees contradicted Sarah's image as an average "hockey mom" - and even paled in comparison to relatively affordable Michelle Obama fashion.

Sarah Palin has said neither wanted nor asked for the clothes.

Todd says the Alaskan governor - who was routinely mocked on SNL while running for VP - was a seasoned politician before joining John McCain's ticket.

"You got to remember, it's not like they just plucked us off the fishing boat with scales still under our nails, you know?" says the father of Bristol Palin.

On a lighter note, during the campaign, Todd Palin, a champion snowmobile racer, had a blast chilling with his temporary Secret Service protection.

"They liked cruising around with me," he says, "we went to the Arctic Cat snowmachine factory and then drove up to North Dakota, went to a Penn State-Michigan football game, went to a NASCAR race. Rough duty, hanging out with me."

It is time to stop Sarah Palin. - Ashley Judd

No, Ashley Judd isn't a few months late, or a few years early, in the battle against Sarah Palin securing an office in the White House.

Instead, the actress is narrating a video that calls out the former Vice Presidential nominee for promoting the shooting of wolves.

The video below was filmed on behalf of Washington-based Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund. It blasts Palin for supporting an expanded program for the aerial shooting of wolves. Moreover, Judd claims that Palin has offered a $150 bounty for the foreleg of each dead wolf collected.

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.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin hasn't yet said anything publicly about her four-day-old grandson, Tripp Johnston, but she does want people to know that Tripp's parents – Palin's daughter Bristol and her fiancé Levi Johnston - are hard at work.

"You need to know that both Levi and Bristol are working their butts off to parent and going to school and working at the same time," Palin told People in a phone message Wednesday. "They are certainly not high school dropouts."

The former GOP V.P. candidate said she wanted to be clear about their continuing work toward high school degrees because suggesting otherwise "harms Bristol's reputation and Levi's reputation and their chances for good work opportunities."

Sarah and Todd Palin became proud grandparents when their oldest daughter Bristol Palin gave birth to her first child, Tripp, with Levi Johnston.

Bristol Palin, 18, who gave birth Saturday, is intending to finish her high school degree through correspondence courses. Levi, also 18, has said that he left high school to enroll in an apprenticeship program training him as an electrician.

Sarah Palin said at the time that she hoped Levi would eventually earn his GED, adding that "I respect that Levi is out there working hard."

We recommend that Levi follow the same career path as his mother, Sherry Johnston. Prescription drug dealing is a pretty recession-proof field.

Today is Christmas, but for many of the stars we know and love, the best present ever came earlier this year. We are talking, of course, about celebrity babies!

Here's a delightful photo sure to put you in the holiday spirit. Check out this poignant moment with Jessica Alba, Cash Warren and their daughter, Honor ...

Jessica and Cash are just two of the new parents of 2008, of course.

Jamie Lynn Spears became America's hottest unwed teen mom when she welcomed little Maddie Briann (below, left). Bristol Palin may compete for that title, but hasn't given birth quite yet - though Sarah Palin welcomed baby Trig in April!

Elsewhere, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves pooled their remarkable genes and created Levi, while many big stars, such as Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Nicole Richie and Nicole Kidman, became first-time mothers.

As 2008 winds down, it's time to reflect upon those - from household names to relative unknowns, from A- to D-list - who made this year so memorable.

The Hollywood Gossip is unveiling 10 finalists for its 2nd Annual Celebrity of the Year award. They've given us their best, their worst, even their nude pictures in some cases. Now it is time for us to give something back with this moving tribute.

We previously profiled the political Home-Wrecker or the Millennium, Rielle Hunter. Today, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #9 … The Palin Family!

When Sarah Palin burst on the scene at the end of August as the Republicans' nominee for Vice President, she took the political and celeb gossip worlds by storm.

Rumors that Sarah's daughter Bristol was actually the mother of Sarah's son Trig led to the revelation that Bristol Palin was pregnant with boyfriend Levi Johnston.

While Sarah invigorated the GOP base and ignited a media firestorm, incredible sound bytes from SNL look-alike Tina Fey and the candidate herself soon followed.

What a great ride it was. Click to enlarge more photos of the self-styled maverick, hockey mom and Joe Six-Pack candidate, along with her husband and kids ...

Two of the most famous women in the world aren't gettlng along well these days.

Oprah Winfrey told Extra earlier this week that she asked former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin to appear on her talk show. But the Alaska Governor snubbed Oprah, possibly because she was busy keeping an eye on Russia for us.

"I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over...I went and tried to talk to Sarah Palin and instead she talked to Greta [Van Susteren]. She talked to Matt [Lauer]. She talked to Larry [King]," Winfrey said. "But she didn't talk to me."

Oprah even got in a little dig at John McCain's running mate.

"Maybe she'll talk to me now that she has a [multi-million dollar] book deal," she said.

Snaps, yo! We're excited to hear Palin's rambling response.

Whose side are you on in this dispute?
