Levi Johnston to Name His Daughter After a Handgun

Ready. Aim. Baby name!

Levi Johnston, an avid hunter whose girlfriend Sunny Oglesby is five months' pregnant with their daughter, plans to name the baby "Breeze Beretta" after the Italian handgun, the couple tell Inside Edition.

Johnston, 21, who also has 3-year-old son Tripp with ex- fiancé Bristol Palin, hopes to be a better father for Breeze, saying his relationship with Oblesby, 20, is stronger than the one he had with Sarah Palin's daughter.

"I'm actually in love," he says, "not doing it just because we had a kid together."

Sarah Palin & Katie Couric Head Back to Morning TV: Whom Will You Watch?

Originally posted 04/02/2012 10:50AM

As the recent HBO movie Game Change reminded the public, Sarah Palin had no love for Katie Couric after the infamous 2008 interview, when the vice-presidential candidate was pressed by the TV journalist to name even one newspaper that she read.

But now, the public will have the chance to see Palin and Couric in action again – not exactly together, but on dueling morning shows Tuesday, when both will help co-host the two top-rated network morning programs: NBC's Today (Palin) and ABC's Good Morning America (Couric).

On Tuesday, Palin called into Today to speak with hosts Matt Lauer and Ann Curry, saying she was looking forward to being with "you good people" on Tuesday.

"Are you reading some newspapers?" Lauer asked her – making Palin laugh and say: "That's a fine 'How do you do?' Here we go."

Sarah Palin, John McCain Disparage HBO's Game Change

Originally posted 03/12/2012 11:05AM

Neither appears to have seen it, but Sarah Palin and John McCain both took shots this weekend at Game Change, the HBO movie about their unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign. The film premiered Saturday night.

Palin, 48, portrayed in the film by Julianne Moore, told Fox News before the premiere that she was "not concerned about an HBO movie based on a false narrative when there are so many other things to be concerned about."

She added: "I believe my family has the right priorities and knows what really matters. For instance, our son called from Afghanistan yesterday and he sounded good, and that's what matters. Being in the good graces of Hollywood's 'Team Obama' isn't top of my list."

Julianne Moore Nails Sarah Palin in Game Change: Review

No one doubted that Julianne Moore would nail the physical details playing Sarah Palin in Game Change, about the Alaska governor's astonishing explosion on the political scene in 2008 as John McCain’s running mate.

So, yes, she does "the voice," which is flat yet nasal. But that's just the starting point. Moore is an unusual actress: At her best – and she is here – she's completely empathetic but also mysteriously remote. Her Palin from moment to moment is absolutely real – but always open to interpretation.

Moviegoers are getting a peek at Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in a theatrical trailer for Game Change, HBO's political thriller about the 2008 presidential race.

The movie, which will air on March 10 at 9 p.m., goes behind the scenes of Sen. John McCain's campaign and in particular his decision to pick the relatively unknown Alaska governor as his controversial running mate.

"We need to create a dynamic moment in this campaign," says Woody Harrelson, who plays McCain's adviser Steve Schmidt. "Or we're dead."

Get ready to see Sarah Palin nearly unravel.

In HBO's Game Change, which dramatizes John McCain's presidential campaign and what happened after he picked Sarah Palin to be his running mate, Julianne Moore plays the Alaska politician as fierce and highly flawed.

"I miss my baby," Moore says as demoralized Palin in a new trailer for the TV movie, which premieres March 10 at 9 p.m.

"She's on the verge of a complete nervous breakdown," says Woody Harrelson, who plays McCain's adviser Steve Schmidt.

Julianne Moore Performs as Sarah Palin in Game Change Trailer

Originally posted 12/22/2011 08:45AM



We knew she had perfected Sarah Palin's look. Now, in the first Game Change trailer, we see that Julianne Moore sounds just like the Alaskan politician, too.

Moore, 51, has just one line in the trailer – in which she accepts the Republican nomination for vice president in 2008 – but she delivers it in the classic Palin voice, one previously imitated to perfection by Tina Fey.

The movie, coming to HBO in March, also stars Ed Harris as John McCain and Woody Harrelson as his campaign manager.

Levi Johnston Claims Bristol Palin Got Pregnant Because Her Mom Was Expecting

Originally posted 09/14/2011 06:00PM

Did Bristol Palin get pregnant just to spite her mother, Sarah Palin?

That's what her ex-boyfriend – and the father of her 2½-year-old son Tripp – alleges in his new book Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs, according to a copy obtained by the Associated Press.

In the memoir, due out Sept. 20, Johnston, 21, says Bristol was angry when she discovered Sarah Palin was expecting a baby. Instead, she felt she should be having a baby and, according to Johnston, told him in March 2008, "let's get pregnant."

Will Sarah Palin put caloric caution on the backburner to take a bite of fried butter? You betcha!

Hitting the road Friday to resume her One Nation bus tour, America's best-known hockey mom will be stopping at the Iowa State Fair, where she says she's going to chow down on some not-so-nutritious grub.

What's on the menu? "I'm excited to try some of that famous fried butter-on-a-stick, fried cheesecake-on-a-stick, fried Twinkies, etc.," Palin, 47, wrote in an email to her supporters."

The war of words between two of Alaska's best-known families, the Palins and the Johnstons, is heating up again.

Following in the barefoot steps of her brother, Levi Johnston, who last year posed for Playgirl, Mercede Johnston, 19, goes nude in a four-page pictorial in the September issue of Playboy (on newsstands Friday), and slams the entire Palin family in the accompanying Q&A.

Mercede calls her brother's ex-fiancée Bristol Palin a "sociopath," and claims Sarah Palin used Levi as a pawn during the 2008 presidential campaign.
