Bristol Palin sat down for an interview with Good Morning America yesterday to promote her memoir “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far.”
What’s happened in Bristol Palin’s journey so far? She got pregnant as a teen, baby daddy Levi Johnston is a dead beat dad, and her mom, Sarah Palin, may run for president in 2012.
In the interview, Palin talks about her son, Tripp, and her history with Levi Johnston. Bristol claims that Levi Johnston “stole” her virginity while they were camping and she was drunk on wine coolers.
She’s quick to note that it was not sexual assault, saying, “That’s what it felt like. I’m not accusing Levi of date rape or rape at all,” Palin said, adding, “I’m just looking back with the adult eyes I now have and just thinking, ‘That was a foolish decision.'”
Despite placing blame on Levi for her pregnancy, she admits, “I should have never been underage drinking and I should have never gotten myself into a situation like that.”
Yes, Palin is selling her story – she says to help provide for Tripp, now two-years-old. But she also hopes that young women will learn from the” foolish decisions” she’s made.
Bristol Palin also thinks the book provides an opportunity for parents to read it and “open up a dialogue to their kids.”
What do you think of Bristol Palin writing a memoir? Doesn’t it seem like every pseudo-celeb is writing a book these days?
