Levi called the paparazzi to let them know he could be photographed leaving a courthouse this week, as he picked up papers to start the process of gaining full custody of his son Tripp. Apparently Levi has been watching Bristol’s show and has decided that Tripp is better off with him. At this point, Tripp’s chances of survival would be better with a pack of wolves in the Alaskan wild, but that’s just me.

The ambassador of abstinence is back and heading to a television near you…maybe. Bristol Palin has landed another reality show and will get a chance to play house with her boyfriend.
Right after her stint on ‘Dancing with the Stars‘, the daughter of Sarah Palin taped a reality show with brothers Kyle Massey and Chris Massey, but after a little bit of press, we never heard another word about it. Not that we’re complaining. Honest.
It seems Bristol moved back to Alaska and bought a house across the lake from mama Grizzly and she’s been working to fix it up. Naturally, Bristol smelled a reality show pitch in there and is now dragging her boyfriend of a year, pipeline worker Gino Paoletti, along for the ride. The two are going to film the adventure of moving in together when the house is finished this summer and give their relationship a “trial marriage“.
“Bristol and Gino are crazy about each other. They’ve talked about getting married, but they think it’s a good idea to live together before making it official.”
In my part of the world, that’s just called moving in with your boyfriend. But I guess it sounds more respectable to call it a “trial marriage”?!
The new show is called ‘Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp”.
No word on whether Levi Johnston will be making any appearances on the new show. He’s in the news this week for knocking up another Alaskan woman, though. And making claims that the Palins are blocking him from seeing Tripp. Mama Palin lashed back at him, calling him a liar and saying that they haven’t heard a word from him since the summer of 2010. So, it makes sense why all of them are back in the news airing their dirty laundry…Bristol has a show to promote.
It sounds like Sarah Vs. Levi would be a lot more fun to watch. But that’s just me.
One of the more controversial admissions Bristol makes in her book includes not remembering losing her virginity at age fifteen while drunk on wine coolers. This revelation led some to speculate as to whether Bristol was claiming to be a victim of date rape at the hands of her then-boyfriend Levi Johnston.
Bristol has taken to the media to promote her memoir set the record straight about these recent mumblings. In an interview with GMA, Bristol claims she was not raped or date raped by Levi, but insists her virginity was “stolen” not “lost.”
She states, “I am just looking back with the adult eyes I have now, and just thinking, that was a foolish decision. I should never have been underage drinking.” Bristol also stands by her decision to use the term “stolen” instead of “lost” regarding her virginity and the night she first had sex, as “that’s what it felt like.”
When questioned about her role to promote abstinence among teens (which some have said is hypocritical), Bristol, who reportedly earned $262,000 as an abstinent ambassador, reveals, “I hate the word ‘abstinence.’ I’m not an abstinence preacher, ya know?” Bristol was on birth control when she got pregnant and believes that abstinence is the only sure-fire way to prevent teen pregnancy, especially since she knew she took her pill improperly her method was ineffective.
During the interview, Bristol is asked what she believes will be her son Tripp’s reaction when he’s old enough to read her book. While throughout her memoir, she refers to her baby daddy Levi as a gnat, Bristol elaborates, “I don’t know if Levi will be a big role model in his life at all, so I’m not that worried about it.” She goes on to say that, while Levi does see Tripp, the time “certainly isn’t as much as he’s entitled to.”
Regardless of your opinions on Bristol and/or her infamous mother, I can guarantee you one thing: this certainly isn’t the last you’ve seen of Bristol’s summer media tour. And fear not, once she’s done hyping her (please say it won’t be!) future bestseller, Bristol’s got a new reality show she wants you to watch! Nope, she’s apparently not. going. anywhere.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON BRISTOL’S INTERVIEW & THE STATEMENT THAT HER VIRGINITY WAS STOLEN?
Bristol, 20, makes the shocking revelation in her upcoming memoir “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far.” In excerpts from the book, Bristol reveals she was drunk off wine coolers when she lost her virginity to baby daddy Levi during a camping trip. It gets even worse as Bristol also says she didn’t remember a thing when she woke up the next day alone in her tent.
And shorty after their first time, the two were intimate again. Bristol also states she was shocked to discover she was pregnant back in 2008 because she was on birth control pills prescribed to treat her cramps. She took eight home pregnancy tests in order to believe she was indeed pregnant.
Levi’s reaction, according to Bristol, was it “better be a f***ing boy.” Her parents were however very supportive though she adds that her mother Sarah Palin was shocked as she wasn’t aware she was sexually active.
There’s more Levi bashing as Bristol refers to him as a “gnat” who is “constantly spreading false accusations against our family.” Bristol also refers to Levi as a self-involved slacker “who cheated on me about as frequently as he sharpened his hockey skates,” citing he constantly came home drunk with hickeys on his neck.
All interesting because Bristol reconciled with Levi less than a year ago back in July when they announced they were engaged once again. Bristol however ended things less than a month later after Levi informed her he might have gotten another woman pregnant. “I’d just made a complete fool of myself and given my family the middle finger,” writes Bristol.
Bristol’s memoir is set to be released on Friday. Levi’s memoir (yes he also has one in the works) titled Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs will be released this fall.
TELL US – THOUGHTS? WILL YOU BE PURCHASING BRISTOL’S MEMOIR?
According to Popeater, Bristol, 20, is set to release a 304-page memoir during the summer. The PoliticalWire first spotted the currently titled ‘Untitled Bristol Palin Memoir,’ earlier yesterday on Amazon’s website (Amazon has since deleted the page) with the release date of June 21.
How many pages is Bristol’s memoir you ask? Just a mere 304 pages! Apparently getting pregnant at age 17, capitalizing of her famous mother Sarah Palin to appear on DWTS, and her custody battle with baby daddy Levi Johnston has given Bristol a lot of material to write about.
Bristol also spoke to E! News yesterday during which she discussed her close friendship with MTV’s Teen Mom star Maci Bookout.
Bristol told E!, “When you are having babies at my age, you can’t really connect with the same friends you had. But I do have a friend that had a baby a few months after I had Tripp. So we’ve become really close friends because of that. Yes, it’s Maci! She’s become a really good friend.”
And despite being rumored to have moved to Arizona to be closer to her new beau Gino Paoletti, Bristol revealed the two are taking things slow. “We are taking it really slow, we are not in a rush, where i was with Levi.” She added, “We’ve been friends for a really long time, he is just a good guy, he is Christan, we have a lot in common.”
It also seems Bristol has had a change of heart since the last interview she did begging ex Levi to give up his parental rights. “I would love Levi to be part of his life, but I know with Levi’s lifestyle right now its pretty hard for him to see Trip right now,” she said adding that when Tripp wants to see his daddy, she will take him home to Alaska to do so.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON BRISTOL WRITING A MEMOIR? WOULD YOU READ IT?
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.

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.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON BRISTOL’S MOVE & COMMENTS? SHOULD LEVI ALLOW THE MOVE?
TMZ reported this weekend that Bristol has been missing a lot of practice with her professional dance partner Mark Ballas. Sources close to Mark tell the site that he has been complaining about Bristol missing practices and is worried her performance on the show will be “embarrassing.”
Mark reportedly canceled last Monday’s rehearsal because of a party for his mother, then Bristol canceled on Tuesday because she had committed to giving a speech, and canceled on Wednesday because her son, Tripp, was ill. Bristol was also only able to practice a half day on Thursday.
The good news seems to be that Bristol did practice a full day on Friday, and Mark is said to have been impressed with her Friday practice.
In other Bristol news, Popeater is reporting that Bristol wants nothing to do with her exLevi Johnston, and is demanding he be barred from the audience.
“The last thing in the world Bristol wants is to look up from her cha-cha-cha and see his big goofy grin looking at her,” a family friend tells Popeater. “This is her time to shine and she doesn’t want him trying to steal her spotlight.”
