Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's interview on today's edition of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" touched on all the topics, political and personal. Here's a run-down of the highlights:
As we saw in the teaser video for the interview, Palin insists that Johnston -- her daughter's ex-boyfriend and baby daddy -- is still "part of the family." But she was clear about her disapproval of his next career move: posing for Playgirl. "Some of the things he is doing is kind of heartbreaking," she said. Of Playgirl, she added, "I call that porn."
Our favorite bit: "I hear he goes by the name Ricky Hollywood now. ... He's quite busy with his media tours and he hasn't seen [his son] in a while."
As for Palin's claim that Johnston would still be invited for Thanksgiving dinner, Johnston himself doesn't buy it. Johnston said, through a Playgirl rep, that it was "a nice gesture but she didn't mean it," adding, "You could tell by her laugh she was full of it."
But Palin said she continues "to hope for the best, and pray for Levi."Read »
