Bristol Palin 'Ignores' Levi Johnston

Bristol Palin 'Ignores' Levi Johnston

Teen mom Bristol Palin poses in a new photo shoot with her son, Tripp, in the June 2010 issue of Harper’s Bazaar (with Katherine Heigl on the cover). Here’s what the 19-year-old shared:

On being pregnant during the 2008 presidential campaign: “It’s not like we all sat down and were like, ‘Alright, here’s the birds and the bees.’ Truly, my parents just assumed that I wasn’t doing anything. And it was a shock for us all… It was kind of humiliating… Great, I’m 17 years old, I’m 40 pounds overweight with a big belly on me, all my friends are at school watching this on the news. This kind of sucks.”

On ex Levi Johnston (and the father of her child): “I just ignore it. He is a stranger to me. I don’t want to get into it. It’s just dirty laundry.”

On taking responsibility as a working single mother (Bristol works as a medical assistant, serves as an ambassador for Candie’s foundation, and fully supports herself and her baby): “I’m on my own. I’m really proud of it. I’m a hard worker… I don’t have time for friends or anything like that. It’s just like, Right, crap, there is a hockey game tonight that I want to go to but I can’t. Or, I do have to go to work today, because I’ve got bills to pay.”

Sarah Palin on her daughter Bristol: “We’re very proud of her for taking responsibility. It’s not an easy road, but it’s the right road. Decisions were made, and we can’t unwind those decisions. Consequences are being dealt with. I’m sincerely proud of her.”

Why is she being featured in the mag? Are we so hard up for celebs we look to the single teenage mother…daughter of a former VP candidate (ok that was a mouthful) to meet the demand?
Seriously though, what has she done? What is she promoting??!!

# 7

I’ve now got even less respect for Sarah Palin than I did before. Seriously, just expect that your teenage daughter isn’t having sex and not tell her anything about that? Unbelievable.

# 8

Maaaan, I’m stupid, but even I’m not stupid enough to get pregnant if I don’t want a kid!

# 9

She keeps talking about how hard she works. Didn’t she just get something like $20k in back child support from Levi? Which, by the way, isn’t taxable income. And hasn’t Levi, the unemployed loser, been ordered to pay her mega bucks a month in child support? Then didn’t she do at least two speeches–and if she even got the bottom price she thinks she deserves–that would be $30k–about $18k after taxes since she is making enough to bump her up into a higher income bracket. And I bet she is getting paid for stuff like this.

Simply stupid.

You mean the daily Tommy Girl + the Beard + the Most Pimped?

The Palins are so offensive in every possible way. Please no more coverage of them JJ. Let’s stop glorifying hatred, prejudice and ignorance.

I’m over Bristol and her ignorant mama. Teen pregancy has been here for years and it will continue to be here especially since we live in an over-sexed, do what you want – think about the consequences later culture.

Bristol had the resources to get protection before she got pregant. I will say at least she is trying to take responsibility for her actions.

I really wonder about these governent officals that are making decisons that affect all of our lives.

She said it herself, ” My parents just assumed I wasn’t doing anything.” That’s what happens when you assume and tell teens to wait or else. That is unrealistic. That’s the problem I have with her. She is being a hypocrite. She should know better than to tell teens to don’t do it.

She’d better keep her kid out of the spotlights and allow it to have a normal life. For the level that is possible in such a family………….

Typical trashy parents, both of em. That poor kid!

There’s a new report out here in Canada that shows that teen pregnancy in my country is down drastically over the last 10 years. Why? Sex ed (not bullshit abstinence programs) and contraception! Meanwhile, the Palins are working hard to keep American teens uninformed and unprotected.

Is it just a coincidence that this is a Tea Party involving a Palin?

And with all the $$$ she makes for all the speeches, magazine spreads, tv show guest spots and whatever else she does to make money, I really don’t have any sympathy for her “it’s so hard being a single mom” chatter. She should try seeing how a regular single mom with no eduction lives and supports their child/ren. Levi just paid her in back child support what many single moms make in a year.


I’m sure the Obama’s got they’re little ho’s on the pill already!


What a despicable comment!

That little loser, Bristol, is just like her psycho mother. The apple does not fall far from the tree.

#19..Is that you Sarah Palin? You are a piece of trash for saying that.

And the fame whor e tour keeps marching on!

Yeah she works so hard trying to make $20,000 per speech like she’s Bill Clinton or something. What is she good for? She didn’t even practice abstinence which is what she wants all girls to practice and have her mommy charge rape victims for their own rape kits and take away access to contraceptives and abortion. F-ck them both.

She should have aborted that fetus had she not planned to include the biological father in its life and some day the biological rights of fathers will be acknowledged. Levi is no worse than the white trash Palin Family. Every child deserves to be loved by (two) parents and that young man has wanted to be a part of his child’s life. She’s such a moneygrubber that his $1800 per month is good enough for her baby but not the presence of the father in that little boy’s life. Bristol Palin disgusts me even more than her mentally-deranged mother. What a screwed up family and what screwed-up values of a certain segment of Americans who embrace members of that family by giving their monies away as they are doing!
