Sarah Palin’s daughter let it rip in a new interview to promote her book ‘Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far’ — and no-one escaped her fiery tongue!
Bristol Palin saves her harshest words for her ‘gnat’ ex-fiance Levi Johnston, the father of her son Tripp, who she claims took advantage of her when she was underage, told her he’d been cheating on her the day their engagement was announced to the world, and hardly ever sees his child.
In her book Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, Bristol, 21, claims Levi “stole” her virginity on a camping trip when they were teens.
Speaking on Good Morning America on June 27, she defends her choice of words: “That’s what it felt like. I’m not accusing Levi of date rate or rape at all. I should have never been underage drinking.”
Bristol says, “The magazine was released on a Wednesday. That day Levi came home and told me a girl might have his baby. That was definitely a punch in the stomach. (I said) ‘I just betrayed my family for you.’”
Their relationship has deteriorated since they split and Bristol accuses Levi of abandoning his son, insisting he “certainly (doesn’t see Tripp) as much as he’s entitled to,” adding, “I don’t know if Levi will be a big role model in his life at all. I’m not worried about it.”
And she hopes her book will help other women avoid guys like Levi: “I hope if women are reading the book with jerk boyfriends they will think ‘I don’t have to be with this guy.” Ouch!
Bristol’s teen pregnancy — which coincided with her mom’s presidential campaign — turned her into an advocate for abstinence, but she insists she “hates the word.”
“I’m not an abstinence preacher. (But) if you want to prevent teenage pregnancy, it’s the only way. I was on birth control and it obviously wasn’t used effectively. Abstinence is the only way. (But) If you’re going to have sex have safe sex. Very safe sex.”
Levi’s not the only man being bashed in Bristol’s book — she also fires off at her mom’s 2008 campaign partner John McCain, who she accuses of failing to support the Palin family when the press began to attacking them. She says, “They (the McCains) could have done more. They could have stuck up for our family more.”
Wow… what do you think about Bristol’s bashing book, HollyMoms, and her advice about abstinence? Is she right?
