For Sarah Palin, Bristol’s marriage to former ex Levi Johnston is not a good idea. The former governor’s daughter told US Weekly in an interview last week that her mother is “not 100 percent” in support of the new engagement, and has serious doubts about Levi’s character. To be fair, the one-time playgirl model hasn’t given her much cause to think otherwise! Check out the full story, with pictures and video below!
The former Alaskan Governor’s daughter captured the nation’s attention during her mother’s bid for the Vice Presidency by getting pregnant with Levi. The two were briefly betrothed before calling it off.
Now re-engaged, the couple it attempting to restore Levi’s image in the eyes of Sarah Palin. Bristol’s marriage would at least be a step in the right direction, proving the embattled Levi can at least follow through this time!
“My mom is not 100 percent backing us up right now. She’s apprehensive and concerned about this. She doesn’t want to see me get hurt again,” the teen mom said to the magazine. “What I’ve done is starting to sink in, and every family member of mine has some concerns — and that is scaring me. My dad is on the same page as my mom: they don’t want to see me get hurt. They don’t want to see again what I already went through with Levi.” Adding, ”people are more worried for me than excited for me.”
In a tensely worded press release from her parents earlier this week, kind words masked what appears to be a poor opinion of their daughter’s judgment in men.
“Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives.”
How can Levi ever hope to regain a scorned mother’s trust after leaving her daughter with a baby and cancelling the marriage to go pose for a nude magazine? It looks like they have a plan. The young mother said Levi will have to earn her mother’s trust by “stepping up and getting his education, GED and whatnot, him getting a job and supporting us emotionally and financially and whatnot then I think [my mom will] accept it and be happy for us.”
We’ll see if he’s able to do that, but I’m not sure he’ll ever really get back into her good graces. What’s more, with the former Alaskan Governor widely rumored to be bidding for a presidential run in 2012, her actions may be decided by what her conservative base would more readily embrace. What do you think of the disapproval of Sarah Palin? Bristol’s marriage is planned within the next month. Do you think her mother is right in being apprehensive? Is any of this politically motivated?
