Because the world’s appetite for snowbilly antics will never be sated, noted Palin daughter impregnator Levi Johnston is shopping a reality show that will follow his attempt to run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, the seat of political power once held by baby mamma’s mamma, Sarah. And, following would-be family tradition, he’ll resign with two years remaining in his term.
Titled “Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor’s Office,” the show will have a three-pronged focus: Johnston vying for the mayor’s office, being a father to Tripp (the child he has with Bristol Palin, with whom he recently split up with) and attempting to pursue a career in Hollywood.
No one has ever accused the Wasilla electorate of being the strongest bolts in the pipeline, but when a mayoral candidate lists his nascent career in show business on par with his duties running your town, it’s probably best to throw your support behind whichever hockey mom is running against him.
I could see Levi having a Goldie Wilson-like moment of enthusiasm over this half-baked idea, but let’s not swear him in just yet.
Networks tend to be surprisingly wary of tabloid figures shopping reality shows (the Octomom, for instance, never landed a series order despite months of press stories about shopping one). Yet the attractive Johnston should be able land a potential buyer or two, particularly among female-targeted cable networks. [Live Feed]
Yeah, because women love guys who knock them up, only to leave and talk smack about their family. Though I can appreciate that cable channels would try to push that ideal on them.
