In an interview with Tyra Banks that will air on Monday, Levi Johnston says that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin “probably knew” that he was having sex with her daughter Bristol. Levi also tells Tyra that Mama Palin allowed the young lovers to sleep in the same bed at her home.
Well. As the Church Lady might say, isn’t that special.
It’s all well and good to scream and holler about how “the media” should “leave these kids alone,” as Angie Harmon recently did on Fox News. But someone needs to tell these kids to stop doing so many interviews. I mean, Tyra? Really Levi? Why? If the reason is “because they asked,” someone needs to point out to the young hockey player that “no thanks” is an acceptable reply.
Over at ParentDish, Susan Wagner writes that Bristol and Levi “clearly they haven’t been getting very good guidance from the adults in their lives. It’s our job as parents to help our teens mature into responsible people, and sometimes that means saying no — to sex and to interviews.” Funny how the advice from “the media” can be better than whatever these two seem to be getting from their own parents.
