What will Kathy Griffin say? Levi Johnston is not only back with Bristol Palin, he's asked her to marry him. And they've already posed for this Us cover (July 26, 2010). Apparently, they didn't even tell Sarah Palin about their engagement, though the Palins have issued a supportive statement that nevertheless reads as if it were scratched into steel by grizzly claws.
Levi, who was always good for some lampooning of the Palins, seems to have retired from common sense, noting:
"That part of my life is over. I'm never going to say anything bad about her or her family. And I will never leave her."
But perhaps it's more a matter of luring Bristol away from the dark side with a velvet glove. It doesn't sound too hard, considering Sarah Palin is finding out about this engagement from Us! Bristol says, of using the magazine to announce everything to her mom:
"It is intimidating and scary just to think about what her reaction is going to be. Hopefully she will jump on board."
