(CNN) – Bristol Palin admits it was "stupid" to lie to her mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, about the night she lost her virginity to ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston.
"It was a night that I look back on with the adult eyes that I have now and I just realize that that was so stupid," Palin said Thursday on HLN's "Dr. Drew." "That was so stupid to lie to my mom and to have those series of bad decisions that I made all in one night."
"I was an idiot for believing that and thinking that," Palin said. "But, yes he had me convinced."
The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee's eldest daughter and author of "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far," said she used to fall for boys she "could fix," but now looks for men that are "into their families, that are on the same page with their faith as me."
Although she wishes she stuck to her abstinence pledge, she said it is important that sex education be taught in schools.
"I think it needs to be taught," she said. "But I mean, kids are going to do whatever they want to do at the end of the day."
HLN, like CNN is owned by Time Warner, Inc.
Always,Always,Always the victim. If anyone else had a daughter (Pres. Obama) that did what Bristol did, Momma grizz would be screaming bloody murder about family values and every other gospel thing she could irk out. Give me a break, these people want people to stop calling them on the things they say and do, but keep putting themselves out there for the criticism. I don't think Bristol even realizies what she is saying a good part of the time. Actually I'm not even sure she has read her own book. Wonder why it didn't seem to catch either her or her moms eye about the fact that according to her tale she was date raped. But momma grizz is sooooo proud of her.
She was an idiot not to have used birth control!
Easy like Sunday mornin'.
This is so pathetic America. Shame on us for giving this family money and attention. This woman has no understanding of life. Do people even know that her mom transferred 5 times to graduate from college. But Obama has to go to Harvard. The standards are not fair. The whole family needs to just read a book, get a decent education, lol it just amazes me.
SHE GETS 30K FOR THIS. WAKE UP AMERICA I BEG YOU.
you know whats stupid. the media wasting their time on stupid typical trailer trash tards like this girl.
A sad girl pandering for attention like her mommy. Levi would be a better influence on their child.
So Bristol is a liar. I fail to see the news in that, she is just following in her mother's footsteps.
This story is Politics? It belongs on a comedy page. This girl (yes, she acts like one and not an adult) is NOT A ROLE MODEL. What has she accomplished to be on HLN, DWTS, etc. What is the message the media is sending? That all you have to be is the son/daughter of someone that's on the spotlight and then CASH in as well. Give me a break. Bristol, gets a new look and now you give her space on TV, she writes a book (LOL). Bristol dear: GO TAKE CARE OF YOUR KID, GET AN EDUCATION AND A FREAKING JOB LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE. You are NOT an insipiaration to anyone. GO AWAY. And as for you CNN.......stop putting this and similar characters in front of our face. Instead give us the Duggard story or those that can lift our spirts – not this GARBAGE.
She "lied to her Mom?" Well, she's still lying. How convenient that all of her "sinning" was somehow compressed into "all in one night," when she further claims to have been so drunk she can't recall the details. In other words, she can still toe the Conservative party line of being a "good girl", because she wasn't responsible for her actions "that one time." Which, of course, also means Levi committed a felony.
It's like listening to Rush pontificate about how street drug addicts should get the death penalty – but his drug addiction, well, that's different.
"News" is about readership. Readers help profit. Find an in depth news article and look at the number of comments. Compare it to the number of comments for this garbage.
We should expect more junk "news" as long as we keep reading and commenting about it.
Why the fascination with this celebutante slut?
Bristol is not the only Palin to coceive out of wedlock. If you do the math on Track's wedding date and how pregnant his new wife looks, it's easy to see this was the result of some pre-marital boot knocking. Get right on it CNN – this should be on the Political Ticker too!
When did Bristol acquire "adult eyes?" Was that part of the plastic surgery?
Give us a break please!!!!!! WHO CARES???? She is as irrelevant as her mother.
Why publish this trash?
I happened to stop at 'Dr Drew' last night. After a few minutes, I felt so embarrassed for the poor girl that I turned it off. She really is as pathetic as her mother. I can't believe that she thinks that anyone believes that Trig (oops, that's the other one), I mean Trip was concieved the ONE TIME she INVOLUNTARILY had sex.
bristol – if you were an adult with adult eyes you would realize you don't lose you virginity – you give it away
Sex education is taught in schools and has been for years. Didn't she take it when she was in school. This is not a new concept at all. I have a very hard time believing her about almost anything. But that is me.
why is a story about a girl that lost her flower on a camping trip on Political Ticker? This happens probably 3 or 4 times a week nationwide. I guess it's because it's Palin's kid and CNN has to do some sort of Palin story.
Anyone in the disfunctional Palin family is front page news. The brain fart. Print it. They lie. Sleep around. Get knocked up. The media is the message.
A huge bomb was detonated in Oslo; a shooting occurred at a Labour Youth Camp there; and this is the drivel CNN posts under the "Political Ticker"????
That's just what I was thinking. Why is this on the political ticker? Last I looked Bristol Palin was not a politician or involved in politics. What a waste of bandwidth.
The girl should have just said she's as stupid as her mother and leave it at that.
HLN's "Dr. Drew." is a whore for the hollywood dollar ! When I see this guy shoot off with the rehab verbs and hipster lingo , his blond dye job and cooler then cool eye wear , i want to handcuff him to a piss in the sink hotel room with some real junky alcoholics. Then Dr Drew can ask them if they ever lied to there mother, , this guy is like Pat Boon singing Tutti Fruity in a world of disfunction and addiction .
Who gives a rats ass about some ex governors kid who lives la la land .
why does ANYONE care about this, stop giving this girl free press that then allows her to think she is somehow important!
