Summer is for lovers: Levi and Bristol edition

My first thought was: I can’t believe Bristol Palin wants to marry Levi Johnston after the way he tried to sell her mom down the river to promote his own name and bank account. Him?

My second was: If this is news, so help us God.

The funny thing is they used the exact same engagement-announcement cards that my wife and I did. The cover of Us Weekly, of course.

The pair say they reconnected about three months ago while working out a custody agreement for their 18-month-old son, Tripp. “I really thought we were over,” Johnston, 20, tells the magazine, which puts the formerly star-crossed lovers on the cover. But after a walk, Bristol says, she was stunned how different her former fiancé was. Later, Johnston texted her: “I miss you. I love you. I want to be with you again.” “I was in shock,” says Bristol, 19.

According to the magazine, Johnston and Palin secretly got engaged two weeks ago. Perhaps that explains the public apology that Johnston issued last week via People magazine, for lying about the Palin family. (No word yet on what celebrity periodical will be catering the reception, but our money is on OK!)
