Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have rekindled their romance and hope to walk down the aisle later this year. However, the young lover sudden reconciliation after more than a year and a half of public sparring has sparked chat that the soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. Johnson are trying to attract press for a new reality show.
As a matter of fact, Gawker.com spies tell us that a deal is already done that will bring Levi, 19, and Bristol, 20, to the small screen before the close of 2010.
“Within the next four to six weeks Palin’s PR people will be releasing news that Bristol and Levi have signed on to “star” in a new reality show. All about young parenting. And yes, they will also work up to a wedding. This is part of the planned ’story arc.’ Sort of a Bethenny Gets Married but with a faux conservative/young Republicans spin. Levi will be promoted as young, decent, salt of the earth guy, Bristol will be seen dealing with the ‘challenges’ of young motherhood…”
In an interview with Us this week, Levi revealed that he’s ready to be a family man — despite his longstanding feud with Bristol’s mother, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin: “I wasn’t there for [my son] Tripp and Bristol, and now I am and it feels great. I love them both very much.”
Bristol added: “It just feels right to be a family.”
Us Weekly hits newsstands on Friday with Levi, Bristol, and baby Tripp posing together on the cover.
Meanwhile, comedienne Kathy Griffin — who Levi allegedly bragged about bedding the fiery redhead– has recorded and ode for the strapping Alaskan!
