And they all lived happily ever-after! I mean, what possibly could go wrong with Sarah Palin in the mix? There is just no commentary that is needed for this crazy bunch from Wasilla, Alaska. To put a large group of dysfunctional trailer-park types in one family and let them struggle for the top is just too hilarious. I think someone, somewhere must be thinking….this would be a great reality TV show. Anyone care to make a bet? There is always money and opportunity when any of these Alaska hillbillies hatch ideas.
The most amazing real-life soap opera of our times has taken a new twist: Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are engaged.
Make that two twists: They apparently shared the news with US Weekly before her mom.
There they are on the magazine’s cover, holding their 18-month-old son Tripp and explaining how they got back together after the most famous teenage breakup ever. Engaged during her mother’s vice-presidential campaign, they parted shortly after their son’s birth, and the split quickly turned tabloid-ugly. But they said they bonded again while trying to work out a custody plan three months ago.
“I really thought we were over,” he told the magazine, but feelings changed when they went for a walk with their son. Nothing really happened then, she said, but he later texted her saying that he misses her and wanted her back. “I was in shock,” she told US.
This begins to explain Levi’s recent public apology to the Palin family. Bristol acknowledged that her mother didn’t know they were back together yet: “It is intimidating and scary just to think about what her reaction is going to be.”
