If he wants real money real fast, Levi Johnston may have to forget about selling exclusive information and just pose for Playgirl again. And this time, it’ll be full frontal.
According to The Huffington Post, the baby-daddy of Bristol Palin is broke, living at his mother’s Alaska home, and currently expecting a daughter with girlfriend Sunny Oglesby. So Johnston resorted to a familiar plan to make money.
A TV insider informed the HuffPost that “Levi made over a million dollars selling TV and print interviews to the press” during his time with the pregnant Bristol Palin, during their break-up, and when they briefly reconciled. “And now he is hoping to do the same,” the insider said of Levi Johnston, “Selling access to his new daughter.”
Already, ‘Inside Edition’ -an outlet that pays for access- had received exclusive information from Levi Johnston. For example, Johnston revealed his new daughter’s name: Breeze Beretta, after the company that made his favorite gun.
But selling exclusive information may not make enough anymore. “Will TV shows and weekly magazines pay Levi?” a magazine editor familiar with Levi Johnston commented. ”Yes, but not the same sort of money he got when he was with Sarah Palin’s daughter,” the source said.
“He will be lucky to get $5,000-10,000 for pictures of his daughter,” the editor told The Huffington Post. “Even if he got back with Bristol [Palin],” the source opined, “I’m not sure anyone cares anymore.”
Daniel Nardicio, the former vice president of marketing for Playgirl, agreed with the magazine editor. ”Levi’s value has stagnated somewhat,” Nardicio informed The HuffPost, “due to his not being in the public eye except for missed child support payments.”
Outside of a full-time job, one of the ways for Levi Johnston to earn fast cash would be to pose for Playgirl again. Except this time, according to Daniel Nardicio, he needed to show everything on Playgirl.
“I believe if he were willing to go full frontal,” Nardicio said, “I could get him a pretty fair deal.” He cited a $25,000 paycheck for a full frontal nude layout on Playgirl. “I was privy to his endowment,” Nardicio added about Levi Johnston, “And can say he has nothing to be ashamed of.”

Bristol Palin doesn’t find any of the jokes Bill Maher cracked about her to be funny. In fact, according to her, Maher is “a joke”- and worse.
According to The Hollywood Gossip, the daughter of Sarah Palin will be the star of a new Lifetime reality show, ‘Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp,’ that is set to debut next month. That drew the attention of talk show host Maher, who recently joked that Bristol will probably name her next baby Colt 45.
“Levi Johnston having baby named Beretta after fav gun,” Bill Maher tweeted about Bristol’s baby daddy, who was expecting another kid on the way with new girlfriend Sunny Oglesby. “Bristol will name her next kid Colt 45,” he opined, “After what shes drinking when she gets pregnant.”
The Hollywood Gossip reported that all the jokes and attention got to Bristol Palin. ”I find it really weird that all these adult men,” she said in an interview with Zap2it, “That they’re always trying to say something about me.”
According to the ‘Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp‘ star, men like Bill Maher, who are “older than my dad,” are “just evil. They’re like little girls.” After saying that “I feel like I’m in high school with a bunch of teenage girls,” Bristol described the attention as “very strange to me.”
Asked by Zap2it what she would say to Bill Maher if they ever met, Bristol Palin admitted that she didn’t know. “I’m not sure what I would say,” she deliberated. “I’d kind of shake my head at him,” Bristol finally decided, and added that “I think he’s a joke.”
Her mother was reportedly more decisive on a plan of action regarding Maher. ”My mom just heard me say something about Bill Maher,” Bristol said. Former presidential candidate Sarah Palin reportedly said that “I’d punch him in the throat!”
Bristol Palin somewhat agreed with her mother’s sentiments about Bill Maher. “Someone does need to put him in his place,” she said. ”If my dad or any of my guy friends got a hold of him,” Bristol predicted, “He’d have another think coming. He really is a joke,” she repeated.

You can tell Levi Johnston that he’s broke and that he lives with his jailbird mom at her home in Alaska. Just don’t call the former fake fiance of Bristol Palin a “deadbeat dad.”
According to The Hollywood Gossip, sources said that Johnston is now broke after he wasted an estimated $1 million in earnings on “guns, boats, and four-wheelers.”
“Levi Johnston hasn’t paid child support in nearly two years,” a source told US Weekly in its latest issue. “And he has little contact with Tripp,” his son by Bristol Palin. The 22-year-old Johnson recently hit back at claims he is an awful father. “No,” he told Inside Edition, “I never will be [a deadbeat dad].”
“I love Tripp more than anything,” he added, “And he is my son- but I don’t feel like a dad to him,” Johnston admitted. “Not by choice, though…
Levi Johnston is best known for getting Bristol Palin -the daughter of former presidential candidate Sarah Palin- pregnant. The two permanently broke up after two engagements. Johnston is supposed to be providing Bristol Palin child support.
“Hopefully,” Johnston shared with Inside Edition, “One day I can be [a proper dad].”
If so, it will be with Sunny Oglesby, whom Levi Johnston got pregnant during a hunting excursion. The couple will reportedly name their daughter Breeze Beretta Johnston, after the firearms company that produced Johnston’s favorite gun.

Birthday boy Levi Johnston plans to name his new daughter by Sunny Oglesby after a balmy zephyr- and his favorite gun. ”Breeze Beretta Johnston,” Oglesby told Inside Edition when they were asked what they will name their baby girl.
“Like the gun, Beretta?” the interviewer asked, referring to the Italian firearms manufacturer.
“Yeah,” the 20-year-old Sunny Oglesby answered, laughing.
“My favorite shotgun,” Levi Johnston added. He then showed off the “Breeze” tattoo on his right bicep. Tattooed on his other arm is ”Tripp,” the name of his son with Bristol Palin.
Levi Johnston celebrates his 22nd birthday today. He first came into public attention when Sarah Palin announced that Johnston had gotten her daughter, Bristol Palin, pregnant. Johnston and Bristol later broke up; Bristol retains sole custody of their son Tripp.
Last month, Johnston admitted during an interview with The Insider that he and Sunny Oglesby were surprised by the conception of the future Breeze Beretta Johnston.
“It was unplanned. There was a time we went to the cabin and forgot the birth control pills and a month later we found out we were having a baby,” Levi Johnston related.
