Watch: Bristol Palin’s Son Curses On Their Reality Show And Levi Johnston Seeks Full Custody

Someone's Misplaced Her Copy Of 'Bringing Up Bébé'
Try Not To Judge...

Okay. Y’all are gonna have to help me out with this one. I know very little about the Palin family drama/saga. I do know the basics, and I remembering hearing about Levi Johnston‘s forthcoming bundle of Beretta when Trent reported the story a little while back. But other than that, I’m still kinda lost in terms of the historical significance of today’s news, lol. I understand that Levi Johnston, father of Tripp Palin and ex-fiance of Bristol Palin has told TMZ that he’s none too pleased with the goings-on of the new reality show Life’s A Tripp. I haven’t seen the show (not sure that I’m missing out terribly) but I’ve just seen this clip that’s been making it’s way around the interweb for a couple of weeks and it pretty much looks like MTV‘s Teen Mom only… worse? Is that even possible? Check out the clip, and get deets about Levi‘s attempts to get full custody of a little boy who’s fond of the f-word. And the h-word.

TMZ has the report:

Levi Johnston believes Bristol Palin is a TERRIBLE PARENT — and the proof is in her reality show … in which she lets their son Tripp run wild, talk back, curse, and show no respect to his elders … so he’s decided to take action … and seek full custody.
In case you’re like most of the country, and haven’t been watching Bristol’s new reality show “Life’s a Tripp” –  her and Levi’s son has been a little ball of trouble … and in one recent episode, even called his aunt Willow the f-word.

During the same episode, Bristol admits, “I’m doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp.”

Now, Levi’s had enough — telling TMZ, he’s been watching the show and is “disgusted” by his son’s language and behavior. Levi says his son is on a “downward spiral” and getting “no real parenting.”

Levi tells us, Tripp “deserves a better family” than what Bristol and the rest of the Palins are providing — adding, “I love my son more than anything .. and I will do whatever it takes to make sure he is raised the right way.”

To ensure that happens, Levi dropped by the courthouse in Wasilla, Alaska this week to pick up all the necessary paperwork to obtain full custody of Tripp — and he plans to file it ASAP.

Calls to Bristol were not returned.

Oh boy. Now again, I have no clue who these people are (really); I don’t read their books, watch their shows, or listen to their parents’s speeches. But after watching one minute of that clip, I feel like I know everything I need to know. About everything, lol. That woman (girl? Mother?) is not that interested in raising her baby, which is slightly different from having a baby or even taking care of a baby. It’s hard to have a baby, it’s harder to take care of a baby… it takes an entire village (lmao) to raise a child. Because that ish is no joke! And because you may want to laugh when they say something bad (although, IMO what little Tripp is saying is more complicated than just ‘bad’), but you can’t.

Also, I read that Bristol came forward later and said Tripp did not use a homophobic slur; the f-bomb he dropped was the uh, traditional curse word. So there’s that.

I suppose you could say that she’s at least admitting to doing a bad job, and that’s a start… I suppose you could say that. But when you say something like that on your own reality show it makes it seem like you want to showcase your terribleness at motherhood, not work on it for the good of your family.

So there! That’s me judging a mom! I try not to… but… ughhh, she’s on TV! And this is why I would never want to be on TV mothering my children! Because everyone would have an opinion and all my mistakes, faults, flaws, and bad decisions would be out there! I’d like to think that I’d look like a better mother than Bristol does right now (again, based solely on  one minute of footage), but who knows?

Anyway, I know some of you have been following this family more than I have. Any thoughts on the clip? Are people making a big deal out of something that is normal or semi-normal for a kid to do? And how ’bout that Levi? Is Tripp better off with him (and his newly prego lady, Sunny)?

P.S. My favorite part of the clip is when Bristol starts to say “God’s watching you,” and then busts out laughing. I thought that was really interesting…

  1. I am NO Palin fan but can’t imagine that Levi Johnston would be a better parent. I’m pretty sure last we all heard there was another baby on the way and he didn’t have a job. Poor kid…

    Levi DOES have a job (electrician) and he has his OWN house…you can’t believe the stories about him living in his mom’s basement and spending a million dollars on “toys”. Bristol leaks all those stories to the press- just like she tells everyone Levi won’t see Tripp when in reality she won’t LET HIM see Tripp. Same issue with child support. Levi’s last attorney Rex Butler was secretly working FOR the Palins, musguiding Levi at every turn. When Bristol told Levi she wanted to reconcile for the sake of their small son in July 2010, Levi believed her. He did not know literally the only reason she was doing it was because her mother told her she HAD to get Levi to retract the things he’d said about their family. So he did it, because Bristol said they had to have a “clean slate”. Hours after Levi made the retraction, Bristol dumped him via text message, changed her locks, and changed her cell number.

    But BEFORE that- in the few DAYS they were “back together”, they did a cover and photo shoot for US Weekly…for which they were to be paid FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS…EACH. Bristol said since they were back together and “a family”, the money should just go in her account and she would add Levi to it so it would be a joint account.

    Yeah, right- coincidentally, the day the check cleared was the day Bristol dumped Levi after their weeklong reconciliation which was initiated and ended by her.

    So when Bristol says Levi hasn’t paid child support- keep in mind she got a fifty thousand dollar “advance” payment by way of STEALING from the father of her child.

    Bristol is a horrible parent and has TWO NANNIES even though she has no job. (her “dermatology office” job- a JOKE. She’s been there two days in two years) She leaves the camera crew of her show to deal with Tripp while she texts for hours on end. She said her show would be a chance to see “the real” Bristol and boy, have we.

    No matter what Bristol says, you can clearly tell he did not say the “f word”. It has two syllables and CLEARLY you can hear the “T” sound. He used the same gay slur his mother and aunt have been saying for his whole life.

    The sad bottom line is that she hates Levi more than she loves Tripp.

    Yeah, I’m no fan of Bristol Palin (or any Palin for that matter) and I wouldn’t let my kids talk or act like that but I don’t think hearing your son say the F word is necessarily grounds for full custody. I personally think Levi just wants to take the opportunity to grab the spotlight. And I agree with Katie, I doubt he would be a better alternative.

    I think I’m the only one watching. I don’t know why I watch – I guess I like a good train wreck. Started out of curiosity and now I keep watching every time my Tivo picks it up. I think because I was a single mom with no help from a no good dad and I just kinda wanted to see how she handles it. I can’t stand a lot on the show, they use the term “liberals” like it’s a dirty word, clearly they don’t know how to handle anything other than mostly white, mostly straight Alaska. She went to LA once and it seemed like she was in hell with all the differences around her. She has a lot of money it seems and doesn’t struggle for much. Clearly a lot of it is set up for her to make her look like she has it all together and that she’s got great morals and upbringing, it all looks really staged though. They do show parts of her trying to get Levi to connect with Tripp and again based only on what they show it never happens. However, going only off of what they show, she actually seems like a pretty decent mom. I don’t know a Mom who hasn’t laughed a something naughty a kid did when they should be disciplining them instead, it happens. I thought he said the regular “F” word there too, just because the other word fits no where in my vocabulary or my kids unless they want to have a very bad day. Clearly if he said the word it looks like he said she should have gotten angry and wondered where he learned it from. Which brings me back to how you can just see that they are very closed off from any sort of difference. But I could point out a lot worse Mom’s than her and she does seem like a caring, responsible mom aside from her multicultural ignorance and obvious ease with bigoted language. I would not think that someone who chose to be absent would do a better job parenting. #Can’tBelieveIJustSemiDefendedaPalin – some one slap me.

    Yep! I have read the books and watch web my DVR picks it up as well and Levi is just looking for his name in the news. He would be FAR worse. Not being a teen mom I can only imagine but geez Louise it would be hard to be SO young and to understand the long term effects of not getting after his naughtiness. Levi and Bristol are both kids themselves. Give the girl a break she is present unlike Levi. And no that doesn’t mean don’t do a good job but exactly like Shannon mentioned when you are on reality they are going to pick up things on camera you wished hadn’t been caught. Live and learn.

    I am childless by choice, but I have help raise my 3 nephews since my lovely brother decided to “find himself” after the youngest was born 15 years ago. I have never watched to show,just dosen’t interest me, but I have watch the clip. Kids at that age see and hear everything and suck it up like sponges, so to me it’s obvious where he got it from. It dosen’t matter what “f-word” he said, at that age it’s inapporpriate. Now, I’m not saying that I never swear in front of the nephews, far from it, but the boys called me on it everytime. (“You said an f-word Auntie! To them, all swearing was an f-word). The one thing I did pass aling to the nephews is something that my Nan passed on to me, and it still works for me. If you are in an awkward situtation, always think “Does this need to be said? Does this need to be said by me? If it does need to be said, defend yourself or others as best you can. If it doesen’t need to be said, keep your mouth shut and let someone else dig themselves a hole.” Wise woman my Nanny.

    She should be ashamed of herself and her poor parenting skills…You should be more strict with that little monster!!!!!!

    Having worked as a preschool teacher, I can tell you just by this clip that Trip would be a nightmare in my classroom. When a child that age not only uses language like that, says “I hate you,” and kicks at adults it is not a kid just being a kid, it’s the sign of incredibly poor parenting.
    I don’t want to hear the she’s just a teenager excuse. I feel really bad for that kid because BOTH his parents seem to only want one thing-Their moment in the spotlight and they’ll use their son to do it.
    Have I laughed at general naughtiness? Yes. But what’s happening and being said in that video is no cause for laughter. That’s a kid who is spoiled and crying out for serious boundaries and normalcy.

    I also have to say that being a crappy parent isn’t cause for her losing custody. If it were, over half the parents I’ve known wouldn’t have their kids anymore….
