The Palins might want to start thinking about moving.
Levi Johnston has teamed with a production company to shop a reality series called “Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor’s Office,” which will–just as the title implies–chronicle his life as he runs for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.
Or since the mayor’s job won’t be up for grabs until 2012, as his new campaign manager points out, maybe he’ll make a run for city council in the meantime.
This kid is the gift that keeps on giving.
This is really the type of situation that reality TV was made for – the type of people that are such trainwrecks that no screenwriter could ever possibly make this stuff up. Seriously, if this was a sitcom, we’d all say it was so out there that no one would watch it.
Former VP candidate (who ran on family values, no less) has teenage daughter who gets pregnant by boyfriend. Daughter and boyfriend get engaged. Daughter has baby. Daughter and boyfriend break up. Boyfriend tells family secrets and poses nude for Playgirl. Boyfriend sleeps with daughter’s friend and possibly gets her pregnant (DNA test results needed for confirmation). Daughter and Boyfriend get back together and announce it to their families on the cover of a tabloid. Daughter finds out Boyfriend slept with friend and possibly gets her pregnant and ends engagement a few weeks later. Boyfriend signs TV deal and decides to run for Mayor of the small town where Mommy VP candidate gets her start.
Now THAT’s what we call a plot.
