While his almost-mother-in-law Sarah Palin hits the publicity trail this week for her autobiography Going Rogue, Levi Johnston will not be getting the exposure that originally had been promised.

Contrary to earlier teases that the 19-year would leave nothing to the imagination in his Playgirl photo shoot, "He did not give 'full frontal' as his manager Tank [Jones] reported he would," Daniel Nardicio, a spokesman for Playgirl, tells New York's Daily News. The pictorial spread was shot last week. NBC News reports that publication, originally set for December, has been pushed up to this coming Saturday, Nov. 21.

Still, said Nardicio, "We're thrilled with the photos we got, and are confident people will love them, but although there may be glimpses, we did not get full on frontal nudity."

For the record, Palin told Oprah Winfrey Monday that she considers Playgirl to be "porn." She added, "It's kind of heartbreaking to see the road he is on right now."

As for the former Alaska's governor reach-out to Johnston with an invitation to Thanksgiving dinner at her house, the teen reportedly told Playgirl that this was "a nice gesture, but she didn't mean it." The nude model also said having dinner with the Palins would be "awkward."
