'Tyra' Appearance Sparks Palin-Johnston Scuffle
What’s a former would-be-son-in-law of Sarah Palin to do once his time as an adjunct member of the family is over? Why, go on “The Tyra Banks Show” of course, as Bristol Palin’s ex, Levi Johnston, has done in an episode slated to air Monday. This media-baiting move has clearly angered Mama Bear Palin.
After taking about sex on The Tyra Banks Show, Johnston – the 18-year-old father of Bristol Palin’s baby – was hit with a blistering response from Bristol’s family.
“Bristol did not even know Levi was going on the show. We’re disappointed that Levi and his family, in a quest for fame, attention, and fortune, are engaging in flat-out lies, gross exaggeration, and even distortion of their relationship,” says the statement from the Palin family rep, Meghan Stapleton.
