Sarah Palin’s Alaska

If it seems just like a few months ago that Bristol Palin, her fiance Levi Jonhston and their son Tripp graced the cover of UsWeekly magazine declaring their love for one another, it’s because it was.

But so much as changed since then. The couple abruptly called it quits just weeks after the magazine cover came out, Bristol appeared on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, and Levi went back to doing whatever it is he does.

Now fast forward to today as Levi has a new girlfriend and Bristol also has a new boyfriend. In fact Bristol appeared on the The Bob & Mark Show a few days ago, during which she reluctantly confirmed she is indeed dating Giancinto “Gino” Paoletti, a 20-year-old Alaska pipeline worker.

When asked about her new Arizona resident and 5-bedroom home, Bristol expressed nothing but joy. “I love the town that I live in. I love my house. Tripp’s happy; he’s healthy.”  It has been rumored Bristol moved to Arizona to be nearer to her new beau Gino, who also resides in AZ.

And when it came to the Levi topic, Bristol, 20, did not hold back.  When asked about the name change rumors which stemmed from a recent facebook posting by her in which she wrote, “Tripp Easton Mitchell Palin… PALIN!!!”  Bristol revealed if it were up to her, Tripp’s last name would be Palin and Levi would no longer be his daddy.

“I’ve asked Levi [Johnston] to do it many different times, just get it out of the way,” said Bristol. “Just sign over his parental rights, but I don’t know if he will or if he wants to right now.”  And just as an extra incentive to get Levi to abandon his child,  Bristol adds that she’s willing to forgo any child support in order to keep full custody of their son.

So far, it seems Levi’s not budging.

Has Sarah Palin decided to pull the plug on her TLC hit show Sarah Palin’s Alaska? You betcha!

According to a new Entertainment Weekly report, the former Governor of Alaska has no plans to return for a second season of the hit TLC reality show, which averaged over 3.2 million viewers per episode.

EW adds that Sunday night’s two-hour finale will conclude the show. So for what reason is Sarah, who reportedly stood to earn millions from a second season, choosing to walk away from the show?

Well according to TMZ, it all comes down to politics. Doing a second season would pretty much indicate a clear sign that she’s not running for President in 2012. While not doing the show leaves the door wide open for a presidential run.

In fact, sources tell TMZ that TLC “would green light another season of Palin’s show in a second.” Though unlike the EW report, TMZ states Sarah has yet to make a final decision.

Plus Sarah not returning to TLC would likely mean more air time for her fellow network star Kate Gosselin. So the question of the day is…

As we reported yesterday, Bristol Palin, who isn’t at all famous for having a famous mom and being a teen mom, and would have definitely been asked to do Dancing With The Stars even if she didn’t have a famous mom, recently purchased a home in Arizona, making plans to move there with her son Tripp while also enrolling in Arizona State University.

A new report by TMZ today reveals Bristol will have one small hurdle to overcome in other to make the move with Tripp. “According to court officials in Alaska, in order for a parent with primary custody — like Bristol — to relocate a child, she would need either consent from the other parent or she could file a motion for approval from a judge,” TMZ reports.

It however seems Bristol’s ex Levi Johnston will not be putting up a fight over the move. Levi’s rep states, “Levi is not at all upset that Bristol is going to Arizona” … adding, “After the holidays, Levi and Bristol will get together and discuss plans for Tripp.”

Bristol has also accused Levi of being an absentee dad recently. Earlier this month, when it was reported that Levi was in a new relationship, Bristol had the following to say — “I have to be happy for Levi’s new relationship because it sounds like his new girlfriend is influencing him to want to actually spend time with Tripp. I sincerely appreciate her influence because [Levi] hasn’t asked to see Tripp in over five months, so I’m happy for this new development!” Ouch.

In other news, Popeater is also reporting today that Bristol might not be the only Palin moving out of Alaska. A source close to the Palin family tells the site that the entire Palin clan is planning to leave Alaska, with Sarah Palin also eying property in Arizona.

The above photo of Levi, Bristol and Tripp was taken during happier times this past July, when the two reunited and sold told their engagement story to UsWeekly. They ended up calling off their engagement again just weeks later.

Bristol Palin continues to reap the benefits of her hard work which includes getting knocked up, having a famous mother her recent appearance on Dancing With The Stars. An appearance she reportedly received $345,000 for.

TMZ is now reporting that Bristol just purchased a home in Arizona for $172,000! And get this, she paid in cash! The 3,900 square foot home, which has 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a 3 car garage, is located in Maricopa, AZ.

It seems Bristol got a great deal on the home as the Huffington Post reports the home was built in 2006 and was bought for a little under $330,000 at the time.

So why purchase a house in Arizona? Well, according to TMZ, Bristol is telling friends she wants to attend Arizona State University, which is just miles away from her home.

The HollywoodLife however has a different take on Bristol’s purchase as the site’s reporting Bristol’s move to Arizona is also so she can be closer to her new boyfriend and fellow Alaskan Giancinto “Gino” Paoletti. Gino is described as a 20-year-old pipeline worker who splits his time between Alaska and Arizona. Gino reportedly also dabbles in real estate and helped Bristol find her new Arizona home, which is not too far from his.

A year and a half after quitting her job as the Governor of Alaska for reasons we’re still uncertain of (her rambling speech didn’t quite make it clear), Sarah Palin continues to ride high.

An ABC news report estimates Sarah has earned over $12 million dollar since quitting her gubernatorial position last year. $7 million of that amount came from her book deal with $2 million coming from TLC. Sarah reportedly received $250,000 per episode for each of the eight episodes of her TLC reality show – Sarah Palin’s Alaska. No wonder she agreed to go on the camping trip from hell with Kate Gosselin. Sarah also earns $100,000 per speaking engagement.

According to a new Popeater report, Sarah’s show was a major success for TLC and the network is now trying to sign her for a second season. Her show debuted to over 4.96 million viewers and the episode with Kate Gosselin brought in over 3 million viewers. Kate Plus 8 on the other hand is only bringing in 1.3 million viewers per episode this season.

“For sure the network is doing everything it possibly can to convince Sarah to do another season, but at the end of the day it looks like it will all come down to money,” a TLC insider tells Rob Shuter of Popeater.

“Sarah knows to strike when the iron is hot and started talking about season two right after the show debuted to huge numbers,” a friend of Sarah reveals. “She knows that celebrities get millions of dollar for each episode of their shows and thinks she’s worth it too. Jennifer Aniston took home millions from ‘Friends’ and in Sarah’s eyes, she’s no different.”

A TV expert adds that if Sarah plays her cards right, it would not be impossible for her to get $1 million an episode for a second season, though we at Reality Tea highly doubt that.
