Aside from Sarah Palin, there wasn't anyone more surprised at the engagement of Bristol Palin and her baby daddy than the other woman in Levi Johnston's life - Kathy Griffin. Bristol and Levi announced they were engaged a year after their break up and subsequent fights in the media. The couple used the media once again to announce they are engaged on the pages of UsMagazine, before they told their families.
Comedian Griffin had crafted a "romance" with Johnston, visiting him in Wasila, AK on an episode of "My Life on the D-List" and brought him as her date to the Teen Choice Awards. In true Kathy fashion she used him shamelessly for promotion. That is one of the things I love about Kathy, she's a shameless promoter and not afraid to admit it.
Griffin took to Twitter to inform her fans of their break up, tweeting, "Oh y did I trust my heart 2 a 19 yr old ice-fisherman/babydaddy from Wasila?"
Griffin also released a video on YouTube, lamenting the end of their romance. Weeping over a copy of Johnston's Playgirl, she interrupts crying jags with plugs for her Twitter page, "My Life on the D-List", her book Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin, and of course her mother's book Tip It. At the end of the video, she seems to have found a new love in Twilight's Taylor Lautner. An excellent choice to make you forget about the ice-fisherman/baby daddy.
