In an unsurprising turn of events, publicity-loving Levi Johnston, has expressed a kinship with fellow high-profile deadbeat dad, Jon Gosselin. At the racy Fleshbot Awards in NYC, Johnston tells People magazine, “He’s a good guy…He’s a good dad and he gets a lot of bad press. He’s getting the same bad image as I am and it ain’t true. I can relate to that.”
Ya hear that? It ain’t true, I tell ya!
And Levi claims that he’s been focused on making money to help provide for his son with Bristol Palin, Tripp Johnston, by getting camera-ready for his photospread with Playgirl magazine. Levi advises, “People won’t be disappointed. It will be tasteful.” It will be a perfect stocking stuffer this holiday season for sure.
As for the public strife taking place between him and his baby mama’s mama, Sarah Palin, the former Vice Presidential candidate told Oprah Winfrey that despite it all, is “a part of the family.” Palin tells the talk show host that if he wanted to come to Thanksgiving dinner, he is more than welcome., “I think he needs to know that he is loved and he has the most beautiful child and this can all work out for good. It really can.”
She added, “You want to bring him in the fold and kind of under your wing.” Cause that’s the perfect position for getting him into a headlock and wrestling a muzzle onto that yap of his.
