The 20-year-old single mom writes in her new book of losing her virginity to boyfriend Levi Johnston on a camping trip after getting drunk for the first time on too many wine coolers.
She awoke in her tent, alone, with no memories of what had happened as Johnston “talked with his friends on the other side of the canvas.” She had vowed to wait until marriage. And she had lied to her parents about where she was going.
After that night, Palin vowed to her mother, Alaska governor Sarah Palin, that she’d abstain from sex until marriage. She continued to have sex and at 18 became pregnant.
“I’d just made a complete fool of myself and given my family the middle finger,” she says after learning Johnston was cheating on her. His side of the story will be told in his upcoming book, “Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs,” due for publication this fall.
Bristol’s memoir, co-written with Nancy French, is due out next week.
I’m not going to lie, at first I thought this was a photo of the real Sarah Palin but it’s actually a photo of Julianne Moore dressed up as Palin for her new HBO movie Game Change.
The movie, which went into production yesterday, follows John McCain‘s 2008 presidential campaign where he picked Palin as his second in command. Ed Harris will take on the role of McCain while Woody Harrelson will play Steve Schmidt and Melissa Farman will portray Bristol Palin.
We all know that Palin isn’t one bit happy about this movie but honestly who really cares about her opinion? I think the resemblance uncanny, what about you?
Teen pregnancy pays off, well that is if your Bristol Palin because according to new tax documents she managed to rank in more than $262,000 in 2009 for being a spokesperson for a teen pregnancy prevention campaign.
Bristol gave her name to The Candie’s Foundation back in 2009 not long after giving birth to her son, Tripp, when she was 18-years-old and that obviously paid off because she maid that amount of money. A source said:
“The money she received was from multiple projects she did with them, she shot PSAs, print and Internet ads and did town hall meetings, as well, and the money she made was an accumulation of all of that. This is not out of the ordinary for a celebrity to make an income off of a charity they represent.”
So even though Bristol helped destroy her mother, Sarah Palin‘s, presedntial campaign back in 2008 because of her pregnancy she still managed to come out on top with this amount of money from just this one campaign. No word on how much she makes from other projects but she is still working for the foundation.
We know her as a reality TV star, author, Bristol’s mom, GOP darling and ‘SNL’ comedy muse. But for years, Frank Bailey knew Sarah Palin simply as: the boss.
Once Palin’s trusted Chief of Staff, Bailey is breaking ranks and planning a new tell-all memoir– according to a new AP report out of Juneau, Alaska — based on his “thousands” of personal e-mails from his tenure working for the former Alaska governor, who was was inaugurated to the state’s highest office in 2006 and abruptly resigned from the job in 2009.
A draft of the book, tentatively titled ‘Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of our Tumultuous Years,’ has leaked to reporters, with excerpts circulating the Internet. Meanwhile, Bailey’s team deny involvement in the leak.
The manuscript allegedly states that Palin, before resigning as governor, wrote to Bailey and another aide, “I hate this damn job.”
Palin’s attorney did not respond Friday to news outlets’ requests for comment.
In a true “Did he just say that?” moment, ’30 Rock’ star Tracy Morgan set the Twitterverse on fire Thursday night with lewd on-air comments about Sarah Palin, and broadcaster TNT is not happy about it.
In a statement, Turner spokesman Jeff Pomeroy said, “It’s unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments. We apologize for any embarrassment or offense it may have caused.”
The comments came during Morgan’s appearance on ‘Inside the NBA,’ before the New York Knicks vs. Miami Heat game at Madison Square Garden. Kenny Smith asked Morgan to settle an argument he said he and co-host Charles Barkley “have all the time. … Tina Fey or Sarah Palin?”
What Smith thought Morgan was going to say after that is anyone’s guess, but as Morgan was mulling it over, Barkley quipped, “Sarah Palin, she’s a good-looking woman, isn’t she?” (Hey, who knew Barkley had a thing for the former Alaska governor?)
And that’s when Morgan dropped the M-bomb: “Let me tell you about Sarah Palin. She’s good masturbation material.”
As he talked about fantasizing about Palin, Smith and Barkley laughed nervously and an uncomfortable-looking Ernie Johnson tried to change the subject. There’s been no word from Palin yet, but it seems likely that Morgan won’t be asked to appear on another live broadcast any time soon.
Bristol Palin has a new boyfriend, and while the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ alum declined to name her new beau, she said she’s “thrilled.”
The 20-year-old daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin gushed about her new life in Arizona in a radio interview Monday morning, saying, “I love the town that I live in. I love my house. Tripp’s happy. He’s healthy.”
Bristol admitted she’s asked her ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston to sign away his parental rights to their 2-year-old son. “Have I asked him to change Tripp’s last name? Of course,” she quipped. “I’ve asked him to do that many times. Just sign over your (parental) rights. He just doesn’t want to sign them over because it looks bad on paper.”

She added that since her stint on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Levi has “seen (Tripp) at most three times,” and each visit lasted only a few hours. Bristol also brought up the possibility of a career in radio.
Joan Rivers says FOX News can “go f**k themselves” after canceling her Thursday appearance on the network’s morning show for what she claims is retaliation for some biting comments she made about FOX contributor Sarah Palin.
Why so riled up, Joan?
It all started when the loud-mouthed legend told TMZ over the weekend that critics were “right” to blame Sarah Palin for the tragedy in Tucson, Ariz. Reports surfaced on Wednesday that FOX heard the diss and nixed Joan and daughter Melissa’s visit on ‘FOX & Friends.’
“We get a call this morning,” Melissa told me on the set of my HDNet show. “You’re canceled on FOX because of what you said about Sarah Palin.”
The top-rated news network denies that Joan’s comments had anything to do with the cancellation, rather, the morning was simply overbooked.
Joan says that she’s willing to take a lie detector test to prove FOX canned her over her Palin comments, which also included calling the ex-governor “stupid and a threat” and blasting her use of the term “blood libel” in a video statement on Jan. 12.
Asked whether she’ll accept an invitation to come back to ‘FOX & Friends,’ Joan went hardcore, saying they can “go f**k themselves.”

“In life, it seems, there are people who break things and people who fix them,” Walters said of Petraeus. “This man is a fixer.”
