Levi Johnston wasted no time finding a date to the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday after breaking off his engagement to Bristol Palin. The Alaskan Romeo showed up on the red carpet at the event as the plus-one to singer Brittani Senser. However, sources tell me Levi actually had his eye on another lady in attendance: Sandra Bullock.
"All night long Levi was trying to get close to Sandra," an award show insider tells me. "He desperately wanted to get his picture taken with Sandra hoping it would show up on the cover of a magazine or at least be able to meet her in person and give America's sweetheart his phone number. Sandra was having none of it, telling everyone, 'Get him away from me.'"
Levi, who clearly has no idea just how smart Sandra actually is, was seen making several futile attempts to catch her eye, all of which failed. Once he realized Sandra was out of his league, Levi was seen approaching at least three other female celebrities who also all refused to have their pictures taken with the fame-obsessed Alaskan.
"Levi's 15 minutes are definitely up but it seems no one has told him that yet," a Hollywood manager tells me. "After what he did to Bristol recently he has gone from being a bad joke to just a bad guy. No one wants to be seen hanging out with him, and leaving everyone to scratch their heads asking how he actually got invited to Teen Choice to begin with."
So Brittani Senser, I'm not exactly sure I know who you are (besides being a singer who'll star with Levi in a music video), but if you want to be known at all, you are going to have to stop inviting men like Levi to award shows with you. Even Kathy Griffin knows that this joke is played out.
Next time invite a family member or one of those cute single guys off 'Dancing With The Stars,' anyone but Mr. Johnston!
I cannot believe I'm about to say this... could it be that I agree with (gulp) Gryphen? Mixed with his typical Palin-hatred yesterday was this (and no, I'm not linking it. You know where it is if you really want to have your computer almost crash because of how horribly that site loads):
However right now this whole thing is nothing more than a Tank Jones version of smoke and mirrors. Check out this unbelievable, unless you know Tank of course, quote:
Asked whether he believes people will take the run seriously, with TV cameras rolling, Jones said: ''People questioned Jesus Christ, so I definitely don't care about these mere mortals questioning Levi Johnston.''
Yeah, THAT is how Jones handles the media. Now do you know why nobody takes Levi seriously?..
Look I don't want to be mean, but I have stepped in mudpuddles with more depth than Levi Johnston.
Of course before Levi can start on his new "political career" there is ONE teensy little thing he needs to get out of the way first:
Reads the statement, "The docu-soap will follow the ever controversial, headline making, matinee idol, handsome father of one as he embarks on a run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska... [the] series will chronicle a 'no-holds-barred' period in Levi’s tumultuous life; co-raising his son Tripp, looking for love, and taking care of business for his fellow Wasillians. He will give us a real inside look into who he is as a father, a skilled hunter, an avid dirt biker, and of course his journey down the road of small town politics -- right after he gets his high school diploma."
That is almost like saying, "Hey I am going to be a famous race car driver, just as soon as I get my driver's license."
Look I really supported Levi in the past, and I do hope that he gets his act together in the future, but he has allowed himself to be turned into an absolute laughingstock, and that did not have to be the way this worked out for him. He has a young son to raise, does he really want to be known as the stupidest person in Wasilla, Alaska? Because I guarantee if he actually pursues this type of program, that is EXACTLY how he will be seen.
I say that's already how he's seen, but whatever. Of course Levi isn't even eligible to run for Mayor anyway, so this doesn't even matter. In the words of the current mayor of Wasilla:
“Well, it is a little early to declare. Usually most wait until the year the seat is up. But since I am nearly old enough to be Levi’s grandfather I think it would be wise for him to get a high school diploma and keep his clothes on. The voters like that!”
