Unlike her ex-fiance, Bristol Palin still has a few more things to lend to tell-alls about what happened right before election 2008--specifically when she drank wine coolers, got pregnant and took veiled swipes at Meghan McCain and Cindy McCain. All of the above gossip from her book comes from ABC News today right before the inevitable memoir hits shelves this Friday. So, in honor of reliving the last presidential cycle, here's what we unfortunately now know about the over-sharing Bristol Palin:
- She doesn't like Meghan McCain: "Every time we saw Meghan, she seemed to be constantly checking us out, comparing my family to hers and complaining," she writes. "Oh the complaining."
- Or Cindy McCain: "I'd never seen people with so much Louis Vuitton luggage, so many cell phones, and so many constant helpers to do hair and makeup."
- Or Levi Johnston, whom she deems a 'gnat':
Palin refers to Johnston as a "gnat" and claims he "cheated on me about as frequently as he sharpened his hockey skates." She writes that while her parents accepted her pregnancy, he wasn't so supportive, saying the child "Better be a f**king boy."
And, finally, she also shares about the night she lost her virginity: "Palin was drunk on wine coolers when she lost her virginity to Johnston while camping. She writes that she 'didn't know that girly flavored wine coolers were just as likely to get you drunk as the hard stuff.'"
The longer versions of those points are here, but we're guessing you've heard similar anecdotes in some form or another over the past three years. Conveniently, however, her book does beat out Levi Johnston's aptly-titled memoir by a few months. We look forward to continuing to relive election 2008 when his Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs arrives this fall.
