Video: Levi Johnston Dishes on Life with the Palins and Playgirl

Our favorite half-Mexican Alaskan is back at it! And this time, Levi Johnston is dishing to Vanity Fair on juicy details about Sarah Palin's failed Vice Presidential bid and what family life was really like for him when he lived with Wasilla's most famous family.

Apparently, all was not as it appeared in the Palin household, although Sarah tried to paint herself as a loving, doting mother to a large, tight-knit family. Levi says, "The Palin house was much different from what many people expect of a normal family, even before she was nominated for vice president. There wasn’t much parenting in that house. Sarah doesn’t cook, Todd doesn’t cook—the kids would do it all themselves: cook, clean, do the laundry, and get ready for school. Most of the time Bristol would help her youngest sister with her homework, and I’d barbecue chicken or steak on the grill."

But the best part of the article isn't the bombshells he drops about the Palin family, it's the behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot! In it, we get a glimpse of Levi's dry sense of humor and of his obviously tight relationship with his manager/bodyguard/father figure "Tank" Jones. He even muses about the possibilities of a spread
in Playgirl in the near future. Check out the video below:

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
