Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston announced this morning that they are getting married. I am shocked by this news and would never have guessed that this girl felt so poorly about herself, that she would not only take him back, but agree to marry him.
I can only imagine what Sarah Palin must be feeling about this turn of events. According to Bristol and Levi, they “reconnected” during they custody battle, and have been engaged for 2 weeks. Bristol says she was scared to tell her mother she was back with her baby daddy.
Sarah and Todd released a statement saying they wanted what was best for their children, but they cannot possibly be thrilled about having Levi Johnston as a son-in-law. I imagine that beyond Sarah feeling embarrassed and pissed off, she must just be so hurt.
That her daughter would want to have a life with a man who was so hurtful to her, must be crushing. While Levi admitted recently that he lied about things he said regarding Sarah and her family, he was not lying at the corner bar to his buddies. He went public, and he went big, talking smack about Sarah.
The most shocking part of this story, is that Sarah and Todd found out about the engagement at the same time we all did. I think this little girl has no idea what she is doing. She is going to marry a man who could not have been more disrespectful to her and her family.
They say they both believe in abstinence, are not living together, and will not live together or have sex, until they are married. I’m not buying it. I think this is a bunch of crap, and I would be willing to bet that she is pregnant right now. Something is just not kosher about this story.
Regardless of what you think about Sarah Palin and her politics, you must feel for her as a mother. If my child decided to be with someone who had been so hurtful and mean to me, I would be devastated, and it would crush me. It is a very disrespectful choice for Bristol.
I can appreciate that it is romantic to think they could reconcile and be together, but come on. This guy tried to ruin her mother. How can they ever get past it? How can he ever think he will be welcome in her home? It’s only a matter of time before he messes up again.
If Bristol wanted to forgive Levi, she could have done that without marrying him. She could have fostered a relationship between him and his son, taken the high road, and been a great mother. Instead, she has compromised her credibility, and put her child in harm’s way.
That baby knows who his dad is, and spends time with him. He is of the age where he will now remember they are all living together, and will have a sense of family by having his dad there every day. When their relationship ends, and it will, Tripp will have a sense of loss.
Bristol did not tell her parents what she was doing because she knows it is wrong. They would have told her she was making a mistake. It is such a shame that children can have the capabilities to have babies, but not be smart enough to make good decisions.
I’ve got $20 that says there will be a reality show about the wedding of Bristol and Levi. Maybe Kathy Griffin will get ordained and marry them in Alaska. That would be reality television gold, and there are probably meetings happening about it right this second.
It will be interesting to see how this story plays out. I will watch the wedding special if there is one. I will continue to think Levi is a pig, and that Bristol is making a huge mistake. I feel bad for Sarah and Todd that this nightmare continues because as parents, this hurts.
I hope the wedding is televised and Kathy Griffin is there. I pray Bristol is not knocked up so when he dumps her again, she won’t have to support two kids alone. To delicious baby Tripp don’t you worry because Grandma has got your back, and I’m certain she is keeping the faith.
