PEOPLE: Levi getting ready to pose nude for Playgirl

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/03/16/art.levi.gi.jpg caption="Johnston's latest gig is with Playgirl magazine."]Levi Johnston has laid bare life with the Palin family. Now he's about to expose much more – himself.

Rex Butler, a lawyer for the 19-year-old father of Sarah Palin's grandchild, says it is a "foregone conclusion" Johnston will pose nude for Playgirl and is now getting gym-ready three hours a day, six nights a week, working out with an Anchorage body builder, the Associated Press reports.

    So now everyone can see what only Sarah Palins daughter saw. Also doesn't mind badmouthing Her mother but nothing written about His own mother who could face jailtime for dealing with drugs.

    Put this in the 'who cares' column. I'm thinking that Levi's 15 minutes of fame have long expired.

    Looks like he fell in with the right family–train wreck all the way to the bank.

    Levi is a joke and always has been, just like Sarah Palin.

    Surely nobody is paying any attention to this news snippet.
    With everything that is happening around the world and in your country you make this newsworthy .
    Shame on you to waste time and space on a little bottom feeder boy.

    The pathetic things is Playgirl obviously thinks this will increase sales.
    I can't blame Levi for taking the money. This is evidence of our celebrity-crazed culture once again rearing its superficial, short attention span once again.

    No more questions about this gem.

    He is going to stretch these 15 minutes as far as he can!

    Gosh, what is it about people associated with Palin who sell themselves out? He's ugly and gross, and it's pathetic that he feels the need to get naked just to stay in the spotlight for another 15 minues. How embarrasing. He has no shame, no morals, and no values. I'm sure his kid will grow up to be proud of his family history. Sad, and pathetic.

    Proof that everything he has done and said since entering the scene as the Bristol Palin sperm donor has been wanton self-promotion. We can now officially discount anything he says that he gets paid for....

    This whole family and their buds are such a bunch of stupid trailer-trash dirtbags! Vice President? I wouldn't vote for Palin for assistant dogcatcher.

    Seriously, isn't this guy's 15 minutes of fame up yet??? Why would anyone be interested in seeing him without clothes?? I'm not a fan of Sarah Palin or her politics, but I say her daughter is LUCKY to be rid of this guy. Go away buddy!

    Congratulations CNN, as they say, "You have jumped the shark" as far as your PUT OUT ANY PALIN STORY even it it has nothing to do with them, just allow for the sheep to bleat on about them endlessly.

    While your looking for hard hitting stories, how about MENTIONING Shelly Obama flat out making up the sitting on Daddies lap story in regards to Carl Lewis as she would have been in her twenties, MMMMMM Obama MMMMM.

    How about looking back at the debates and the ads run last year where Obama HAMMERED Hillary for being for making folks pay for NOT GETTING HEALTHCARE while he was AGAINST that idea????

    His ads and words back then are different than now bigtime.

    Lastly, how about the administrations photo-op fiasco where they were caught handing out lab coats to the doctors the other day as we are too dumb to listen and find out they were doctors.

    Selected, Elected and now cowardly Protected.

    What a loser. He tried to capitalize on his dubious connection to the Palin family, and now he resorts to posing naked in PlayGirl to try extend his 2 minutes of fame?
    Hopefully Palin'd daughter will snatch most of his payment for this photo shoot for child support. I can't see where he's getting money to pay child support right now. He must owe.
    Mothers teach your daughters to stay away from LOSERS like this.
    His parents are LOSERS too, to allow their son to behave in such reprehensible ways.

    He needs the money to take care of that baby now that Sarah and her husband have quit their jobs.

    Great. We get to see inside Levi's Levis to see the Palin babymaker. Sheesh, when did this become news? I just hope Tom Delay does not join him in a photoshoot.

    Sad, most of what he said was probably lies, he just wanted a career.
