Bristol Palin dishes on cheating baby daddy Levi Johnston in new book
nydailynews.com ^ | June 18, 2011 | Mike Jaccarino

Posted on 06/19/2011 6:56:39 AM PDT by ilovesarah2012

Sarah Palin's daughter is proving hell hath no fury like an Alaskan scorned - especially one with publishing contacts.

A cheeky Bristol Palin writes in her new book, due out next week, that her romance with ex-beau Levi Johnston - he of Playgirl fame - was one of "deception and disappointment."

He "cheated on me about as frequently as he sharpened his hockey skates," Palin penned of the bad boy for whom she first fell in seventh grade.

The "Dancing with the Stars" vet goes on to denigrate her former flame as "the gnat named Levi Johnston," in the teenage tell-all, entitled "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far."

I remember how stupid I was at her age. I’m glad I didn’t have a publishing contract.

Bristol is a nice girl, and I wish her and her son the best.

Just my honest opinion but I have no intention of reading a book by a young woman simply because she is Sarah’s daughter. First, this book will do no justice to her Mother or Father and will only be used to hurt them. Secondly, get over yourself. Okay, you had a child out of wedlock. Now, do what a real woman is suppose to do. That is, get some education or life skills and get a job to ensure that your child is taken care of. The whole “the Daddy of my baby is a jerk” matters to no one but her. Sheesh!

Bristol went up against a lot of people with dancing experience on DWTS, did a great job, and made a lot of money.

Maybe she feels she needs to have her say. Maybe her book will resonate with many young women out there, trying to cope with these unmanly men our society seems to encourage.

Also agree, however, these tell all books are usually never a good idea.

Even if everything she says about Johnston is true, she should have enough respect for her son to keep it private. No kid should have to hear one parent speak so poorly of the other, particularly in such a public way. Take your money and go get an education or a real job, Bristol.

Books like this can have a positive impact on teenage girls. They need to hear this message from a young lady who actually went through it.

The scum called “levi” is no man. If he had an ounce of character he could have made the relationship work and have been a beloved father and had a strong supporting family in place of the empty hole of depraved behavior his life truly is.

What to say about this? At least she’s not dishing on her mom?

I wonder what we will hear from Sarah this week. I don’t think she should let another week go without advancing word of her running, at least. She could overshadow Bristol’s book (which IMO would be a good thing) by making news of her own in Iowa, but would that lead the overshadowed daughter plotting to retaliate? On the other hand, I could see Sarah making legitimate news being enough for the MSM to wrap it all up with gossip from Bristol’s book.

I think Sarah needs to forge on with her own business on her own schedule, which should include some news and an appearance in Iowa this week. (And yes, I know she’s 100x the political strategist that I am, I’m just opining here.)

“Maybe she feels she needs to have her say..”

Her say to what? To whom? Okay, I think we all got it. She was young and fell in lust with a young guy and got pregnant. I may have been raised a bit differently but public airing of one’s laundry was seen as not acceptable. My point is she needs to grow up and stop living her life in one event. The only thing this book will do is hurt her Mother. (IMHO). I also wonder what the “tell all” details will do to her child when he is older. The difference between a girl and a woman is a woman looks out for the people relying on her and a girl looks out for herself. She needs to do some serious growing up.

“Books like this can have a positive impact on teenage girls”.

Honestly, do you know about teenage girls? Do you really think that teen girls are going to run out and buy a book because they want to know what Bristol is saying? Let’s say for sake of argument that Bristol feels a need to educate the younger girls. Okay, proof is in the pudding. Get an education and show them what maturity is all about. Slamming the father of your child is not a mature way of handling this. Her main responsibility in life right now is her child.

Someone wrote this book but she didn't. Has she finished high school yet?

She needs to stop undermining her mother. Going back to school and taking care of her baby would be a good start.

First of all, you haven't even read Bristol's book, so you don't know how it will affect her mother. I just did a Google search on Bristol, and the MSM has nothing but negative comments about her.

The MSM hates Bristol and Sarah for even having their babies when they could have had abortions.

In spite of obama, it's still a free country, and Bristol has the right to tell her story. Young girls should read it so they don't make her mistakes.

Liberals out there hate Sarah and Bristol, regardless of what they do.

Bristol is trying to make a living for her son. Also she is trying to help others in her situation.

“First of all, you haven’t even read Bristol’s book...”

I read the excerpts. Do you really think it is an honorable thing to tell the world (and your child when he is old enough to read this stuff) that she was “deflowered” during a camping trip after she “passed out”? I understand that many do not like the Palin’s (the media in general). However, adding some gas to the political fire is not wise. Of course, she has the “right” to do what she pleases. I just wish that she would stop and THINK a minute about consequences of her actions.

I happen to like Sarah Palin. That is why I read the article! If she is trying to truly make a living for her son then she has to look toward the future and stop relying on her last name. That will only last so long. If she was truly trying to “help others in her situation” then she would so something to improve her life and the life of her child. A G.E.D. is a good starting point.. not a “tell all” book about her “deflowering”.

When Mama ain’t happy…ain’t nobody happy.

Actually, Bristol has been remarkably mature and restrained about all this. Especially compared to Ricky Hollywood.

After reading the negative comments from so-called Sarah Palin supporters here, I'm going to buy this book. Some people here on FR haven't even read the book, and they're trashing Bristol for writing it.

Her son needs to hear what his dad really is so he doesn’t expect better and have dreams of a guy who doesn’t exist.

If the jerk had cared about his son, he would’ve immediately set out to get a job, provide for him, and at the same time get an education and make something of himself. He chose instead to gig tabloid talk dissing the child’s mother and family and displaying the morals of an alley cat sniffing heat.

Bristol was a young girl taken advantage of by a jock with the ‘I love you and if you love me, you’d have sex with me.’ How many teenage girls have fallen for that old krap and been abandoned by the great jock lover?

Oh, he was just a kid, doing what kids do, you know, boys will be boys, you say? How many girls did you talk into the back seat of your Chevy with such NONSENSE?

Bristol can now raise her son with a better sense of responsibility for his actions than his father displayed. And she can teach young girls not to fall for this krap!

It was nice having Levi Johnston absent from the news. Now he and his innuendos about the Palin family will be back as the media seeks his response to the book. Thanks a bunch Bristol.

And don’t forget to tune in for her new reality show.

“You make alot of sense”.

Thank you! I am in no way bashing Sarah Palin. I truly like Sarah. What I am seeing is that this book will certainly give fodder to the media and anti-Palin people. I certainly can separate the difference between Mother and daughter but many can’t. That being said, when a young woman has a child out of wedlock and chooses to keep that child (not allow the child to be adopted) then she has to grow up and start living their life for their child instead of themselves. Sarah has to be in the spotlight if she wants to run for the presidency etc.. However, her daughter “chooses” to stay in the spotlight. That is the difference and concerning to me.

The biggest negative about the book is that, it is going to bring Levi back into the spotlight and to a second round in the interview and gossip circles, and he’ll end up being a “winner” with the money he’ll demand. Hopefully, some of that money will go towards support of their child.

She is Sarah’s daughter and I assume she makes her own decisions. Sarah isn’t responsible for what Bristol does or doesn’t do.

And, for those who wave the flag of go to school, get an education, are you aware of the number of college grads unable to find employment?

Bristol is providing for her son with the tools she has.

Some on here need to take their own advice, and STFU.

Some are just as bad as the haters - and I’m sure Bristol doesn’t give a rat’s patootie what some of you think of her. She needs to let the truth be known about that scumbage - he burned up the airwaves trashing her mom. Its good she is telling her side of the story, for those who care. I don’t, but, this is still a free country. I also just love the holier-than-thou attitudes from some people.

I kind of look at it as the girls made a load of money feeding the hate-filled liberals who feels their miserable lives are vindicated by any sordid tale they can scrounge up on Sarah or her children. All Sarah needs to do is say "Bristol is an adult and has her own life to live" and that settles the matter, IMHO. Ronald Reagan had controversial children, too. Didn't impact his effectiveness as a leader/conservative.

In the end, Bristol's doing just fine.

And she's not my problem via blood nor the tax dollars the feds have leeched from me.

It's time for the American public to NOT hear about their affair anymore.

This is cheesy tabloid fodder. I used to think the media were the ones perpetrating it; now it's Bristol herself.

This is good for no one, including her young son.
