"No, I have not had implants," she said in an interview with FOX News host Greta Van Susteren, who asked the former governor of Alaska point-blank about speculation she's had breast implants. "A report like that is about as real and truthful as reports that [my husband] Todd and I are divorcing or that I bought a place in the Hamptons or that [my son] Trigg is not my own child."
Calling gossip about her chest size "Boob-gate," Palin, 46, attributed the rumors to "bored, idle bloggers and reporters with nothing else to talk about."
She also offered some advice to anyone wondering whether she's enhanced her bust: "I think some of those folks, too, they need to perhaps grab a shovel, go down to the Gulf, volunteer to help, clean up and save a whale or something."
Apart from having to answer the embarrassing question, Palin said the speculation about her chest will also have her second guessing her wardrobe choices from now on.
"To be judged on or to be talked about on appearance – say chest size – it makes me wear layers, it makes me have to waste time figuring out what am I going to wear so that nobody will look at an area that I don't need them to look at," she said. "I want them to hear what it is that I'm saying. It just ends up wasting time and that's very, very unfortunate."
