Most people who lose their virginity as teenagers rarely have a romantic tale to tell. Frisky high-schoolers are usually living with one or both of their parents, making it very difficult to find access to a bed that's not under the same roof as said guardian. Therefore, they must venture outside of the house to get it on—and so they do. We've heard stories of first times happening in cars, on roofs, in pool houses, you name it. So the fact that Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston (who were both teenagers the first time they slept together) did it in a tent, while on a camping trip with friends is nothing unusual—it's par for the course.
But what is hopefully unusual and somewhat heartbreaking is the fact that when it happened, Bristol "was drunk on wine coolers, didn't remember a thing, and when she woke up Levi had split." Now we're hoping this isn't a teenage trend, especially for your first time! But, sadly, this is what Bristol claims happened in her new memoir Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far.
According to US, after the incident, Palin wrote that she woke up in the tent alone, unaware of what had happened earlier, and that she could hear Levi as he "talked with his friends on the other side of the canvas."
Now, we have to wonder though, is Palin writing the truth? Bristol and her entire family have been out to get Levi since their very public and very bitter split, and with this book, Bristol is basically implying that Levi raped her (as she was too drunk to consent), which is a tall accusation. Don't get us wrong, we side with the woman in all of these instances, obviously, but we're just pointing out that the Palins aren't always the most honest, (or the brightest, frankly) people. They are a family of politicians and attention grabbers, after all.
Bristol also writes that she and Levi weren't going to have sex again, unless they were married. But they were teenagers, and of course they did it again anyway. And the next time, the result was an accidental pregnancy. Bristol writes that her parents were supportive when they heard the news, and wanted her to continue with her schooling. Levi, on the other hand, according to Bristol's book, told her: "Better be a f***ing boy." Bristol Palin Sues Levi Johnston For Custody
The memoir, which was co-written with Nancy French, calls Levi a "gnat" and a selfish bum "who cheated on [Bristol] about as frequently as he sharpened his hockey skates." The books makes stabs at Johnston's character, confronts the accusations he's made about the Palins after the election, and reveals his treatment of Bristol throughout their relationship: Bristol writes that she discovered Levi had been cheating on her via text and broke up with him. But, months later, the couple reunited, announcing their engagement. But it was short lived, as soon after, Bristol learned Levi had gotten another woman pregnant. Is Levi Johnston Playing Mind Games With Palin?
Levi, though, has a new book too, coming out this fall, called, Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs, which is sure to retaliate and take some stabs of its own back at the Palins.
And, can we all agree that Bristol has a completely new face since last we saw her?
