This is so not surprising, and still so grotesque. Reunited couple Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin are shopping a reality series around Hollywood, according to TMZ. The couple, who are reengaged, reportedly have a few reality concepts in mind, some of which include the participation of their 2-year-old son, Tripp. No word on whether Sarah and Todd Palin are anywhere in the mix.
The arc of Palin and Johnston's relationship is so ... so... NOW. She's pregnant at 17, they break up and carry on a war in the media, he poses for Playgirl, he and her mother go at it in the media, the couple reconnect during custody hearings and get reengaged, and they vow not to have sex until after the wedding. And the reality show, if it happens, will be the fake jewel in the plastic crown.
