Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston’s lives have the feel of a soap opera-the teen pregnancy, break up, Playboy shoot, public warring, abstinence campaign, and now marriage for the Alaskan star crossed lovers–so why not give them a reality show? It makes sense. Each of them has been doing the press rounds and achieved a fair amount of air time. They’re clearly willing and hungry to be on TV.
A source has told Gawker “Within the next four to six weeks Palin’s PR people will be releasing news that Bristol and Levi have signed on to “star” in a new reality show. All about young parenting. And yes, they will also work up to a wedding. This is part of the planned “story arc.” Sort of a Bethenny Gets Married but with a faux conservative/young Republicans spin. Levi will be promoted as young, decent, salt of the earth guy, Bristol will be seen dealing with the “challenges” of young motherhood (with Trig and the nannies kept carefully out of sight.) Willow will be on a lot. (Since it’s not like she goes to school.) They’ll attempt to boost rankings in the first few episodes by having Sarah cameos, maybe some Piper thrown in there, but the rest of the time will be a “conservative young marrieds who just happen to already have a baby” theme.”
Sounds like a plausible idea. I have my fingers crossed for Bistol and Levi Plus 1, complete with wildlife scenes. Would you watch? For a little preview of what this may be like, below is a video the pair made for Us Magazine discussing the big proposal.
