Bristol Palin is a lying grifter who lies about everything, especially money & work

bristol4

Bristol Palin is almost eight months along with her second unmarried, unplanned pregnancy. This time Bristol is having a little girl. I can’t believe it’s been this long and we still don’t know the paternity of the second kid! Ugh. From what little I know of Bristol’s life, she lives pretty quietly in Alaska, working part-time (?) at a dermatologist’s office in Anchorage, which is quite a commute for her. She also blogs about politics, and her posts are often hypocritical, ill-informed, full of half-truths or outright lies and utterly stupid. A few months ago, she even had the audacity to blatantly lie about the way she grifted hundreds of thousands of dollars as an “abstinence advocate.” Why bring this up? Because the Daily Mail has a really interesting exclusive about Bristol’s money situation, including info about how much she gets in child support from Levi Johnson, and whether she’ll ask for child support from Mystery Baby Daddy #2. Some highlights:

Her child support battle with Levi has finally ended: Bristol “has come to an agreement with Levi Johnston over how much he should pay towards the upkeep of their 6-year-old son Tripp. But terms of the agreement, reached in court in Anchorage, Alaska, have been kept under seal… The deal with Johnston, her classroom sweetheart from Wasilla High School, was finally hashed out last month in front of Judge Mark Rindner, after three years of nasty courtroom fights, court records reveal.”

Levi always wanted the battle to be public: After their 2009 split, “That began a round of court battles which started off bitterly and only got worse. In an initial affidavit Johnston asked for the hearings to be public ‘as a check against anyone’s need to be overly vindictive, aggressive or malicious. Not that Bristol would be that way, nor would I. But her mother is powerful, politically ambitious and has a reputation for being extremely vindictive…So, I think a public case might go a long way in reducing Sarah Palin’s instinct to attack.’”

Bristol really did make money as an abstinence spokesperson: Bristol “received $262,000 in one year for her work, according to her tax returns.” Apart from the Candie’s money, she appeared on Dancing With the Stars, wrote a 2011 memoir and had a reality show, Life’s a Tripp, on Lifetime TV, which was cancelled after one season. She used her new-found wealth to buy a five-bedroom home in Arizona, but soon got homesick and moved back to Alaska.

But something weird happened: “By 2014, she was claiming she had not earned a penny in 18 months and pushed a judge to increase Johnston’s child support payments to $1,750 a month. Within weeks of that filing, it was Johnston’s turn to increase the heat, asking a judge to find Palin in contempt of court for taking Tripp out of Alaska without his permission.”

[From The Daily Mail]

Granted, the Daily Mail piece is really poorly written and edited and I felt like they were skipping around too much, so I was trying to make sense of the timeline. I knew Levi and Bristol had been engaging in a crazy back-and forth for a few years, but I didn’t realize that was still going on so recently – they only put this issue to bed back in September! I also would love to hear Bristol’s explanation for how she did not make any money for 18 months in 2013-14 when she supposedly worked at a dermatologist’s office for the past SIX YEARS? Oh, you mean she only posed for photos at the office once in a blue moon and that’s it? You mean she’s a lying grifter desperate to shill any line of conservative horsesh-t? Well, I never!

As for this second child… is the father Bristol’s ex-fiance Dakota Meyer? Or is it someone else? WE STILL DON’T KNOW. But considering the drama-queen legal theatrics she pulled with Levi and the fact that she’s never done an honest day’s work in her life, my guess is that Bristol is going to whip out her crazy when it comes to supporting the new baby. Then we’ll finally learn the identity of Mystery Baby Daddy #2.

    Sucks to be her

  2. Lindy79 says:

    $1750 a month?? Is this normal for a regular joe, which I’d assume Johnson falls into that category as opposed to a celeb. especially when I’d guess Palin is the higher earner between the two of them.

    • Cindy says:

      That was my thought too. How the hell does a schmuck like Levi Johnson come up with 1750 a month?

      • jwoolman says:

        Depends on what work he does. The cost of ordinary living is a lot higher in Alaska, but the pay scale has to be proportionately higher in decent jobs. But I’m sure the judge took all that into account in deciding the figures.

      • swack says:

        Most states have a formula to figure out child support. It takes into account both incomes. So am assuming this is how this amount came about.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        In Alaskan money, $1,750/month is not that much. It’s a higher cost of living and in turn, wages are higher.

      • EMC says:

        That $1,750/month figure came about based solely on the 2009 Playgirl photo shoot, a one-time attempt by Levi Johnston to earn some money to support his mother (on disability) and his sister (still in HS at the time). The Palins’ vengance toward Johnston for being the baby daddy involved putting the word around to their friends to blacklist the kid’s job-seeking attempts. So he took the only option his self-serving advisors (lawyer Rex Butler and bodyguard Tank Jones) offered.

        http://nymag.com/news/intelligencer/61873/

        I can’t imagine why Bristol Palin’s earnings from the Candies Foundation (about $250,000), a handful of “abstinence” or “pro-life” speeches (at $30,000 apiece) and her first of two go-rounds at Dancing With The Stars ($350,000 and $80,000) didn’t offset Johnston’s one major income source.

    • Jen43 says:

      That does sound steep. Plus, I think Levi has a few other kids with his wife.

    • Tifygodess says:

      It’s based on income so Levi must have a pretty decent job. That figure doesn’t seem too high for a regular joe in my opinion. Clearly some women get a lot less but there’s many who get more than that. Just depends on what Levi does.

  3. antipodean says:

    Bristol. please do the decent thing for once and take your abstaining self back to Wasilly. Try to live quietly and raise your kids to not be hypocrites or self serving grifters. Is her mouth moving? Then she’s lying.

        Cough it up mimif!

      • mimif says:

        Sorry! I completely spaced out. Okay, I have to be kind of delicate because… f-ck it.
        So my bf is a commercial fisherman up in Bristol Bay (occasionally I crew for him), and he fishes alongside Todd Palin in the summer. Additionally, one of our good friends is a longtime Palin family friend (we constantly tease him but by all accounts he swears Todd is a good dude), so I always get the insider stories and it’s why my face turns purple every time there is a post about them here.
        Anyhow, the year the Palins had their stupid documentary Sarah and her brood were crawling all over the town we fish out of. This town is teeny tiny btw, there is like zero anonymity. It’s also a very pro-Palin town too, as they have Alaska Native roots there, so one does not speak unkindly of them in public. A friend of mine starts telling me that she’s boinking James Palin, and I was like, yeah whatever, who cares. And then she starts telling me these stories…like super lurid stories of shit that he was into, stuff you wouldn’t make up unless you were a sociopath, but I was busy fishing and couldn’t be bothered. So THEN, she starts sending me screen caps of their FB convos and dude, a) the guy is a total dog (supposedly on a trial separation from his wife, whom eventually divorced him), b) not even going into the sexual details because it makes me want to com (NASTY), but c) he talked so much shit about Sarah it was unreal. That she was cheating on Todd (apparently James and Sarah had a fling too, something about being a knob gobbler, but she broke it off), she’s a total drunk who lets her kids do whatever they want, Bristol is the town bicycle and the rumors about Sarah’s last baby being Bristol’s were true, how her thirst for fame completely destroyed Todd & Sarah’s marriage, talk about swinging…should I go on? He sounded like a jilted lover, he totally despised her. So take that all with a grain of salt, people.
        Then this douche James invited my friend to Hawaii with his kids, wanted to marry her, (also wanted to f-ck her friends) guy was just a piece of work. FWIW, my friend isn’t exactly playing with a full deck so he was 100% taking advantage of her. Ick. The whole family is revolting.
        From personally experience, Sarah is a hag. Literally. I’ve met her more than once and her voice makes me want to rip my hair out.
        The End.

        P.S. I’m mad at all of you now for making me type that out AND I’m going to hell.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Damn girl! You supplied us. You supplied us well. I think I have enough here to chew on for many months to come. BTW “knob gobbler” and “town bicycle” are my new go-to phrases.

      • mimif says:

        Lol knob gobbler is pretty good, but I’m still mad at you (also keep remembering more tidbits!). It’s not too much of a stretch tho, is it? I mean, she’s just a horrible person, and so is her daughter. My bf’s FB feed is a gem of info, too, as most of his buddies are Alaskan. Very few people (outside some of the rural villages) hold them with any kind of regard. They are a disgrace to the great state of Alaska and I can’t wait for them to go far, far away.
        RANT OVER.

        ETA omg I can’t edit my OG post. **makes me want to VOM, not com. That sounds so wrong. 😫

      • mia girl says:

        mimif – As if I didn’t love you enough already! I’m sending you a day’s worth of emoji hearts and smiley faces for giving up the gossip. I am fascinated that you are in “social circles” so-to-speak with that family.

        And don’t feel bad. The juicy details first hand are great but in terms of the overall gossip, none of it is surprising.

      • SusanneToo says:

        Hmmm, sounds like every rumor that ever slipped out was 100% on the mark.

      • Crumpet says:

        mimif > I love you. ~(‾▿‾)~

      • mimif says:

        I’m trying to remember what year this was…2009 or 2010, so back when Palin was kind of a big deal (to some folks). But yeah, I wouldn’t be surprised if James Palin started the whole Sarah pretended to have Bristol’s baby rumor, dude was out to get her. Which was equally odd because he was technically working for her/part of her entourage, not to mention her BIL.

        Nothing but applause from me, Mimif. You rock. You rule.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        oh why oh why and I just seeing this… MIMIF!!!! Man, I don’t know anyone up there that actually knows the nasty sh*t on that family, they think they are WONDERFUL, CHRISTIAN PEOPLE!! Ugh.

        I’m glad you corrected “com” to “vom” because I instinctively added an “e” to the end… ha.

      • mimif says:

        There you are, NUTBALLS! I was freaking mortified when I saw that, especially considering how disgusting this dude’s sexual preferences were (I’m very liberally minded in that department, so I’m telling you, he was gross).

        @doofus, I have old gossip! Remember that movie Practical Magic? It was filmed where I used to live, on a teeny island, so most of us worked on the absolutely ginormous house they built for the movie. We were forbidden to interact with the cast, but of course we all did. Sandra Bullock was super nice (my friend was her stand-in and Sandra joked that my friend should be the star as she was much prettier), Diane Wiest is probably the sweetest, most gracious person I’ve ever met, Nicole Kidman ICYYYY, and….my friend screwed Aidan Quinn at the hotel she worked at while his wife was 9 months pregnant at home. Total dog, super hot. And obviously, all my friends are whores, yay! 😐

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Mims, you are officially the most interesting person I have ever cyber known. Deal = sealed.

      • Christin says:

        Mimi, YOU have very interesting tidbits! Just goes to show, that many rumors or just intuition about people is often true. I’ve always suspected SP was a hag and that Nicole is not shy, but cold as ice.

      • Bridget says:

        @size: you just had a baby and are ready to seal the deal again, huh?

        @mimif: we have some family friends that are in Alaska politics (and would HATE that I was gossiping) and they don’t exactly have the nicest things to say about Sarah Palin, so I believe this.

        And it was a big deal when Practical Magic filmed around these parts!

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Yep, mimif wins the internet today with all the juicy gossip she’s coughing up. I’ll never look at Aidan Quinn the same again. What a douche!

      • mimif says:

        @Bridget, I KNOW. If my friend knew I wrote all this…also I have a friend that works for one of the legislators and oOooOo that’s all I’m going to say about that!

        P.S. What happened to our blue and green boys? *sobs*

      • Trashaddict says:

        Oooooohhhhh mimif. You have just made me so sad about Aidan Quinn. I thought he was gorgeous and he came off so nice. Are they any men out there who are capable of being faithful? Another bubble burst- tears.

      • mimif says:

        The thing with Aidan was a major drama and my friend got flamed big time (sorry to break the news!). Also, my bf is so mad at me for spilling that Palin bs, so you guys are cut off! For now. 😛

      • Sparkly says:

        Ooooh, thanks for sharing! I have to admit, your comments about his disgusting preferences only make me more curious. But I’m into some pretty kinky stuff, so I’m just wondering what sociopath stuff would be. lol

    • phlyfiremama says:

      Beat me. Punch. LOL

    • phlyfiremama says:

      So basically, she is her mother all over again. GRAAAAYYTTT (best Office Space impression)

  5. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    What a mess of a woman.

    Also, whoever the afather is of this latest baby it sure isn’t Dakota, that much is clear. If she’s willing to fight Levi for years then I couldn’t see her tucking her tail and running away so quietly from this latest one.

    She cheated, got caught, and Dakota likely promised to put her on blast so throughly even her mom would go down in flames if she didn’t vacate herself from his life immediately. Just seems like she gtfo so fast and with such little resistance that something in the relationship – much like everything else in her life – was a rotten lie.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yeah, if the father was Dakota, they would have said so. Neither she or her mother can keep their mouth shut about anything else, but have been suspiciously quiet since that whole canceled wedding/surprise pregnancy thing happened.
      I’m guessing the father is someone scandalous or another PR push of a happy relationship would have happened by now.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        Yeah for a Palin she’s laying suspiciously low after just going through a media blitz with the relationship, seems like she’s not quite ready to stick her neck out.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Anybody else wondering if she tried to pretend Dakota was the father when she knew he wasn’t? I’m still wanting to know why they dropped the wedding at the last minute and no harsh words for Dakota? Seems very suspicious for the Palins not to attack anybody who might hurt one of their own. So, that leaves the only other viable answer – Dakota canceled the wedding bc he found out she was pregnant and it wasn’t his. That’s my guess. Set me straight if I need setting straight….about this.

      • doofus says:

        JenniferJustice, I believe that’s the most common (and logical) theory.

      • Sam says:

        Jennifer: I am not sure what Dakota knew/thought. I’ve seen it speculated that Dakota might have known going in that he was not the father. Think about it – you never heard anything that he and Bristol were even dating – not even from their families. And they got engaged and the wedding was scheduled really quick – like within a month. Most brides take at least a few months (3-6 is the suggested minimum, I believe) to plan weddings. Why the rush? Dakota has made no secret of his desire to go into politics (at least if you believe his online presence). Did he make a deal with the Palins to marry Bristol and claim the baby in exchange for their help with his political aspirations? It sounds crazy, but with that family, could you really put anything past them? And is it possible Dakota and/or Bristol got cold feet or decided to not go through with it and now here they are? Who knows!

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      In the most recent pregnancy photo she released, the dog of her ex-boyfriend (the one before Dakota) is clearly visible. At the time she announced her engagement there were rumours that the ex was not totally out of the picture while she was dating Dakota too. I think we can all guess who the baby daddy is and why Dakota booked it far, far away from her and her crazy family!

    • Bridget says:

      Agreed. And have you seen his Instagram/Facebook? It is so obvious he wants to head into politics, but he is such a moron. He and Bristol actually would have been a match, Sarah must have been pissed that Bristol blew it.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        Oh you know Sarah’s grinding her teeth. In their nutty political world there’s still not a lot of guys who would want to hook up with Bristol (because of past baggage and her mom) so for Sarah to have found a passionate Republican soldier with dreams of going into politics only to have it slip away…

        Yeah, I suspect she’s more disappointed/angry with Bristol than anyone else. With even Fox News washing their hands of her she’s got fewer and fewer media outlets to ramble to.

    • Sam says:

      A part of me wonders if Dakota knew going in. You didn’t hear anything about them dating, and then, BOOM, they’re engaged. Most parents I know would shout it from the rooftops if their daughter was marrying a Medal of Honor winner. That’s an actual accomplishment and honor and credit to your name. Most people would love to get that within the family. And the Palins are notorious PR hogs. Could they really keep that info to themselves? And Dakota supposedly has political aspirations of his own. Is it possible that Bristol got pregnant and the Palins and him cut some kind of deal for him to marry her, claim the baby and they’d help advance his political aspirations in return? I usually think that stuff is beyond belief and conspiracy stuff, but gosh if this isn’t making me think about it. Why else would she not identify the father? This is a down-the-rabbit-hole thing for me.

    • stoner says:

      I think she doesn’t know who the father is and that’s why she’s not saying one way or another. This way, if it does turn out to be Dakota’s, she can get indignant after the fact. She’s sneaky, but she’s not particularly bright.

      • Sarah says:

        How will she know even once baby is born? Unless she does DNA testing (which may require cooperation from the guy thus ruining the scheme), her ‘type’ seems to be white, brown haired redneck. Babies just look like blobs – you cant ever be totally sure who the dad is. Obvs unless she procreated with someone from a different race… but that doesn’t seem likely, knowing her.

  6. Nicole says:

    Let’s see. I’m looking at an Louis Vuitton purse, North Face Vest (on both her and her child), and Ray-Bans. Her ego would never let her have a fake. She’s getting money from somewhere. I’m guessing the Super PAC.

    • Le sigh. says:

      Thank you for this! I was staring at that picture thinking this “gal” has on at least $5K worth of accessories alone.

  7. Sam says:

    Well, in fairness, if you’re the parent of a child, you need to care for it. And usually, that means child support. She should get support from her daughter’s father. What I’m waiting for is the name. What last name is she going with? I heard a while ago that she petitioned the court to change Tripp’s last name to Palin, since Levi was such a deadbeat for a while. I have no clue how that actually ended up, though.

    What gets me about Bristol is that, in the beginning, you could actually feel bad for her. She was pregnant to a guy with little ambition while in high school. Lots of girls deal with that. I could actually feel for her, especially being forced into the public spotlight when her mom accepted the VP nomination. But she’s behaved so poorly since. If she had just had her son, stayed in Alaska and made a life for herself, I think people could like her, or at least forget her and leave her to her own devices. But she keeps on with this insistent trying to make people pay attention, having really uninformed opinions and making herself out to be a hypocrite. She’s burned up all the goodwill a lot of people had – even many conservatives, now that she’s gone and done the whole “second kid, not married” thing (since you know how it happens now).

    ETA: I will say something nice, and that’s that somehow, Bristol and Levi produced a very attractive little boy. He seems so happy in every picture he’s in.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Sadly, if their episode of Wife Swap is any indication, his life has no structure or discipline and he came off as a brat.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      It’s more than just getting pregnant out of wedlock. She made a small fortune shilling her “abstinence” BS and there’s no way to make her give it back. That really sucks!

      • Sam says:

        I don’t think promoting abstinence and having a child out of wedlock are mutually exclusive. Abstinence is really about waiting until you’re personally ready to have a kid and not risking it beforehand. I’ve known people who supported abstinence and had children without being married, and they saw no conflict. They waited until they were ready, and when they were, they had a child. Marriage is often a separate issue.

        If Bristol was honest and said, “I was in a committed relationship, we were engaged and the wedding was right around the corner and we wanted to have a family as soon as we got married, so we did start trying right before the wedding and it happened incredibly quick and things fell apart and now we’re not together but we’re going to co-parent this baby and make it work that way” – you know what? I’d at least respect that. I’d respect her willingness to be open and honest and just deal with the situation. I’d get what the thought process was and I could feel for somebody in that situation. But she’s SO defensive and nasty about it – still judging other women who choose to have their babies as single moms but not willing to criticize herself. And she seems to not get WHY people are angry with her. Even a lot of conservatives I know talk smack about the Palins now, precisely because they seem so unwilling to examine their own behaviors. Even conservatives can spot a hypocrite when needed, and Bristol certainly is one.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        I get what you’re saying, but I don’t see her as being “ready” with this child either. Not only does this latest pregnancy scream “oops!” but I have a gut feeling the suppose engagement to Dakota was either a smoke screen he was in on or he was being duped which is awful on so many levels.

        I don’t expect a young single women to be celebate. I do expect people to practice what they preach especially when they preach from a might high soap box, get paid for it, and have already made “the mistake” before. If abstinance is really about waiting until you’re personally ready, she’s still a hypocrate.

    • EMC says:

      Sam said, “She was pregnant to a guy with little ambition while in high school.”

      Not really. Levi moved in with the Palins and helped Bristol take care of Trig (Sarah’s alleged 5th child, who was really probably Bristol’s first, born several months before his announced birth date 4/18/08) the rest of 2008 and into the new year, then suddenly the Palins evicted him, Bristol broke their (first) engagement, and Levi moved back with his mother and sister.

      The Palins attempted to destroy the whole family by Bristol setting up Sherry Johnston in a drug sting by lending her Bristol’s cellphone (Google it; it’s quite a story; Sherry served time for “dealing” Oxycontin), and getting their powerful friends to blacklist Levi from getting any jobs on the North Slope. It took years for him to overcome the blacklisting.

      He’s worked in electrician jobs for several years now, supporting his wife and two children as well as paying that overly generous court-ordered child support for Tripp.

  8. SypherMomma says:

    I’ll go out on a limb here and say I don’t think her or her family want to name the babys father until they’ve gotten a paternity test after the birth. I think naming the father and possibly being wrong is a risk they’re not willing to take….they know people already think they’re trashy clowns.

  9. Anonymous says:

    I’m no fan of the Palins and I realize Bristol brought this upon herself, and also that this site is called Celebitchy, etc. But still, this is 2015 and shading a woman for an ‘unplanned, unmarried’ pregnancy seems over the line, as well as comments like “we still don’t know the paternity of the child”. There’s no reason we should know. Yes, I know Bristol is a hypocrite for advocating abstinence-only education and herself would have no problem saying such things. But you’re not Bristol, and I assume you don’t want to be.

    • Wren says:

      It’s only because of the ridiculously hypocritical nature of her life. She has made more money than a lot of us could ever hope to have by blathering about abstinence, a practice she clearly does not espouse in real life. She is rude, vindictive and publicly goes after people in nasty ways all the while acting like she’s some martyr.

      If she just lived her life, didn’t publicly condemn others for something she obviously does herself, and most importantly, didn’t take money for preaching abstinence while NOT being abstinent, nobody would care. It’s not shaming her for being an unwed, unplanned mother, it’s shaming her for being a raging, self-important hypocrite who has profited off her hypocrisy to an insane degree.

    • Jaded says:

      However Bristol has been hypocritical enough to take money for “abstinence advocacy”, then turns around and has yet another out-of-wedlock baby by an unnamed sperm donor. Plus she’s constantly trying to winkle herself into the public eye by spewing utter nonsense, no doubt recycled from her mother’s foaming-at-the-mouth rants against evil Liberals and Obama the terrorist. If there’s one thing that irritates me beyond anything it’s being talked down to by someone with an IQ of 12 and little-to-no grasp of world politics. So we’re not shading her for getting pregnant or being coy about who the father is, we’re shading her because she is a liar and a hypocrite.

      • Anonymous says:

        I get that, and I think it would be fine to write an article about how that particular behavior is hypocritical, but this post doesn’t do that. It kind of tosses around ‘unplanned, unmarried’ before criticizing her for something else entirely. And the expectation that she should announce who the dad is seems unrelated and unnecessary regardless of her hypocrisy. I agree she is a hypocrite and there’s a lot of context here, but I wouldn’t want someone else to read this and come away thinking there is something wrong with an unplanned pregnancy or that you have to reveal your child’s paternity to strangers on the internet. Maybe I’m just being overly sensitive because I am pregnant, but if someone asked me those questions, I’d be outraged.

    • anne_000 says:

      I don’t think CB means to shame every “‘unplanned, unmarried’ pregnancy,” but this particular one is beyond the mark, especially considering that she denies being an abstinence advocacy regardless of the money trail. It’s the cover-up and the hypocrisy and lies in this particular case (think Watergate and Martha Stewart – it’s not the ‘crime’ itself but the cover-up and lies that got them).

      Yes, “we still don’t know the paternity of the child” from her and her family who’ve been so self-righteous and lecturing of how other people they don’t like have fallen standards and no sense of self-responsibility and self-control. Palins up here *raises hand high up* and all those bad immigrants, Muslims, impoverished people on government support, and terrible liberals down there *lowers hand to the ground.*

      So it’s not a general criticism but a specific one to this particular case. Even the Watergate scandal bunglers…er burglars… weren’t this screwed up.

    • Bridget says:

      I have no problem with her having an unplanned, unwed pregnancy. I do however have a huge problem with her (and her mother’s) political views that would absolutely limit OTHER young, unwed, unplanned mothers’ access to Healthcare and public assistance, not to mention insistence on what they consider to be good old fashioned family values. It’s hypocritical and gross.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      She should get plenty of shade for bilking thousands from people and companies, SCHOOLS no less who paid her lying a$$ to speak about abstinence. She defrauded people out of their money. It’s like paying someone to talk to your kids about the dangers of drugs and alcohol only to find out after you paid them that they’re a very active addict. It’s lying and betraying trust.

      And I don’t care what year it is! It could be 3015 and I’ll still be disgusted with a woman who can’t swallow a frickin’ pill and has brought not one, but two innocent kids into the world – one we know with a deadbeat dad, and this latest baby, who knows. Accidents may happen once, but after once, it’s no longer an accident. Unplanned does not equal accidental – when it’s a pattern it’s just plain irresponsible and/or manipulative.

      • Trashaddict says:

        Eh, they kind of deserve it for even signing on with this concept. Not realistic, doesn’t work. Now if for philosophical reasons, one wants to apply it, so be it. It’s a free country. But they were delusional and the delusional and their money are soon parted.

      • EMC says:

        I see you’ve accepted the Palins’ slam of Levi Johnston as being a “deadbeat dad”. Would you call him that if you knew the Palins did everything in their power (and at the time, they WERE very powerful) to blacklist Levi Johnston’s ability to get a job after he was thrown to the curb by Bristol in early 2009? He was double-dealt by his greedy lawyer and bodyguard, who absconded with a lot of his entertainment-industry earnings, so, he went back to his electrician training in 2012 and has been working in that industry ever since.

    • Jaded says:

      None of us, not even Kaiser, are insinuating in the least that unplanned pregnancies amongst the younger, unwed generation are horrible or evil or that anyone should be castigated for it. Stuff happens. However, this is about a young woman who made several hundred thousand dollars preaching as an abstinence advocate and used her platform of “hindsight is 20/20″ to promote the issue. She scammed money from a subject she clearly has no respect for so she’s really no better than a TV evangelist who takes millions from their supporters then gets busted with a mistress or building a gazillion dollar mansion in the south of France instead of financing charities. Then she has the audacity to wag her finger at the rest of the world for calling her out. She is a hypocrite and grifter of the first order but doesn’t have the intelligence to carry it off. She should just shut up, stop the constant famewhoring, and raise her children quietly without embarrassing herself further.

      • Once bitten, twie shy says:

        I completely agree with Jaded. And the question of paternity comes in to play because Bristol tried to justify her hypocrisy by saying that it was a “planned pregnancy”. If that’s the case then there shouldn’t be any question as to who’s the father, yet she remains quiet. Which is not the standard Palin MO. Dakota Meyer would’ve already been crucified for being a deadbeat. It has nothing to do with her being unmarried with no knowledge of the paternity, but has everything to do the fact that she still tries to make it look like she still has some moral high ground.

        IMO you could get pregnant after having slept with the entire neighborhood and still have a moral compass that points truer north than Bristol Palin’s.

  10. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    Also this might sound ironic from someone who was taught ? suggested? abstinence till marriage and stuck with it but people like her who act as she does are the biggest jokes.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with teaching abstinence, lots of issues can come with sex at a young age for a multitude of different reasons but I ALSO think there’s absolutely nothing wrong with sex education. Maybe I just went to a super liberal catholic school but I was taught sex-ed in 8th grade and all through my 4 years of high school. It seemed like a great idea for girls to know more about their bodies and make informed intelligent safe choices. We even had a nurse come in to speak to us specifically about STD’s and our periods. All of his helped me become a person who felt everyone’s choice whether to wait or proceed with someone they consented to was acceptable.

    People like her who feel they’ve got a special ear up to God and that they can babble on about how precious and awesome abstinence is while claiming hundreds of thousands of dollars and unable to even keep their legs close AFTER their first accidental pregnancy (or politicians that rail against abortions but will sure as shoot whisk their daughters off privately to get it taken care of as soon as possible) really stick in my craw.

    Jesus Christ Bristol, it’s about self control. Something you apparently lack and can’t function with, one day Mommy won’t be able to con enough funds to cover your butt and what will you do then? Try a third or fourth sloppy marriage with another unplanned baby? I know it’s super fun for you but stop touting the party line and judging everyone else when it’s your soul and actions that clearly need an examination.

  11. the_blonde_one says:

    I just can’t. In any other circumstances except for who she was born to all this would be called welfare queening. These bitches would have literally taken the food out of my infant son’s mouth while i was working part time, in college and getting food stamps, child support (lol, $50 a month) and a couple hundred in ‘welfare’ all the while trying to take my birth control from me. that may not even read coherently, i’m *that* mad but I think y’all get my gist.

  12. DodieTn says:

    Or the dad’s married or famous. Lipstick alley thinks it’s Ben Affleck lol…..I am afraid to laugh just in case it is…it has been a weird summer/fall for shenanigans….

  13. nicegirl says:

    Wow, 1750 monthly is a crazy amount. How can that be correct? I thought child support was ordered based on the income of the parent – - – what does Levi do? He’s rich, all of a sudden? Hmmmm

    • SNAP says:

      That’s what i know too…she can petition for a million a month if she wants to, but there is a standard child support formula to calculate the amount and it takes BOTH parent’s incomes into account. Even if she didn’t work for 18 months (if that was true) there’s something called “imputed income” which takes into account how much Bristol made in her last job as her current income because that is the amount she could be potentially earning, at a minimum it is calculated based on how much she would earn with the minimum wage in her local area. Otherwise this world would be full of Bristols requesting ridiculous amounts of money to mantain their stupid lifestyle when they should be working to support themselves. I have no respect for women who become abusive in court and expect to never work again and live off child support. Yes mothers are entitled to it, but that should not be expected to be their sole source of income. As responsible adults we are to work for the life we want not to squeeze as much as possible for the sucker who fathered our children. Fair is fair.

  14. aims says:

    Five bucks that the guy she was going to marry isn’t the father. She just wanted to marry him as a cover that she was knocked up again.

  15. lis says:

    I’m embarrassed I even clicked on this link.
    Find this family even lower than the Kardashian klan.

  16. holly hobby says:

    I’m pretty sure she “works” at the dermatologist’s office. Only not as a receptionist. She most likely gives happy endings in the back. That’s how she ended up with mystery baby.

  17. Daria Morgendorffer says:

    I generally don’t pay attention to this trashy troll, but I noticed on her Instagram page a while ago that she is always decked out in expensive clothing and accessories. There’s one picture where she has well over $15k in Louis Vuitton luggage and handbags in one picture. Where does that money come from? She can afford all kinds of Louis Vuitton stuff but claims she has no income and needs her child’s father to provide more child support and claims to be broke? Even if she did work at a dermatologist for 6 years, she still wouldn’t be making enough to live like that. She’s such a train wreck.

    • Little_Me says:

      Don’t forget, she also showed off her many pairs of Louboutin (sp?) shoes – the ones with the red soles. Those cost a fortune, too. And her – so far only acknowledged – son got an electric gocart for last Christmas from her that costs over $4,000, and she has already owned several houses and a mansion down in Arizona!

  18. vanessa says:

    she is such a troll, she really needs to go away

  19. iheartgossip says:

    Well she did fall out of the greatest grifter of all time. Apple. Tree.

  20. anne_000 says:

    What a fool this one is. Making a big public show about having a steady six-year job at a doctor’s office, and then claiming in 2014 she’s made no income for 18-months. This is 2015. Can’t she even do simple math? Fool.

    • Christin says:

      And sadly, she’s likely raising another generation of spoiled, self-righteous grifters who cannot keep their stories straight.

      I realize that sounds harsh, but her son was out of control on that swapping houses episode. And what will the kids learn, given how the mother and grandmother operate?

      • Penguen says:

        I missed the episode – can you recap?

      • Christin says:

        It was celebrity wife swap, and Melissa (Joan R’s daughter) swapped with Bristol. The boy was an absolute terror in what little I could watch. He would actually hit his mother and aunt.

        I found it unbearable to watch all the way through, but there are parts online, I’m sure.

  21. Faun says:

    Technically, this is Baby #3.

    Trig is hers, too.

    • gogirl says:

      For sure. She even made a tweet recently about hanging with “her boys” with a picture of her, Tripp, and Trig.

    • Little_Me says:

      Don’t forget the baby she had after DWTS! She was highly pregnant on that show, and Tripp said something that he had a ‘baby sister’ at that time!

  22. CK says:

    I really hope this baby comes out black or noticeably hispanic. Can you imagine the heart attack that the conservative media would have?

    • Pinetree13 says:

      LOL while hilarious I actually wouldn’t want that for the poor child’s sake. They’d raise him/her to feel inferior which would be sad and wrong.

    • Little_Me says:

      They most likely already have a lily white substitute arranged!

  23. gogirl says:

    Please. We all know Dakota Meyer is not the father. If that was a planned pregnancy for two Evangelical people, they would not have separated at the very moment of their wedding and then acted all fucking weird about the whole thing. Dakota has never acknowledged becoming a dad. Bristol has never explicitly named him – why? She never sought to hide Levi’s identity. I just can’t WAIT to see how this unfolds.

    Also, this list of tags is PERFECT:
    Bristol Palin, Hypocrites, Lies, Paternity, Stupid

  24. Honeybee Blues says:

    Ok, yes she’s a lying liar who lies, and there was not breeze one the day that acorn fell from the tree, but this (emphasis mine) is what got me: she appeared on Dancing With the Stars, WROTE A 2011 MEMOIR and had a reality show….” Well, I was unaware of the 2011 “memoir,” and it immediately brought to mind one of my all-time favorite quotes. Bear with me. When artist Julian Schnabel published his memoirs at the tender age of 30, art critic, the now late Robert Hughes wrote, “If for Socrates the unexamined life is not worth living, then conversely speaking, for Schnabel, the un-lived life is not worth examining.” Wow, do I miss his wit…

  25. Meg says:

    i just can’t believe how different she looks since getting her jaw surgery for ‘corrective reasons’ ‘not plastic surgery’ even though when asked if she was happy with the results she said ‘i’m thrilled with the results! it it makes her look so much better.’ way to sell this ‘medical necessity’ line. IDIOT

  26. JRenee says:

    Have always thought Trig was her son as well, not Sarah’s. By the time Tripp came along, it was too late to pretend she had him as well. I can’t imagine how she will earn income now. Oh, a real job, smh.

  27. firstwife says:

    I totally believe Trig is Bristol’s baby. Photos of Levi and Bristol holding him the night of Sarah’s speech – they look like parents. Someone I know went to a foreign country on a Rotary High School student exchange that year, and met kids from Alaska who told her the baby was Bristol’s. That was before all the rumors started floating around the internets.
