Instead, Levi Johnston prefers to titillate America in a tell-all on Tyra Banks' show. My favorite slice from this article:
Johnston said the Alaska governor probably knew he and Bristol were having sex. "Moms are pretty smart," he said.
Which means exactly what? If this is supposed to signify parental consent, a lot of parents of sexually active teens would like to disabuse you of that idea, young Levi.
Tyra's promoters put it like this:
Find out if Sarah Palin knew Levi and Bristol were sexually active and what he has to say about practicing safe sex.
I agree - check out the clip. Then tell me if you "found out if Sarah Palin knew" they were having sex. And Levi's word on "safe sex."
But wait - a Chicago Tribune article words that bit about Palin knowing differently:
In an interview that airs Monday on "The Tyra Banks Show," Levi Johnston admits he and Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol were allowed to share a room at Mom's Alaskan home even though Palin probably knew they were having sex, Usmagazine.com reported Friday.
"I'm pretty sure she probably knew," says Johnston, "Moms are pretty smart."
Did I miss something? Was he reportedly allowed in the house after the birth of their not-immaculately-conceived baby, but then he was relegated to the couch?
That's not what I thought. 'Cause it's pretty clear the chastity ship already sailed. With a new baby waking up every few hours, how is that couch thing gonna work? It's silly. Moreover, until now nobody was asking.
I'm not surprised that so many reports misrepresented this quote.
