Kathy Griffin Taking The News of Levi's Engagement Well

From "Kathy Griffin reacts to 'former flame' Levi Johnston's surprise engagement to Bristol Palin:"

Sarah Palin wasn't the only person kept in the dark about daughter Bristol's surprise engagement to ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston – funny lady Kathy Griffin was taken aback as well.

Though they never actually dated, Johnston and Griffin have kept up a comedic charade about their so-called "love affair" since making a highly publicized appearance together at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards last August.

"Oh y did I trust my heart 2 a 19 yr old ice-fisherman/babydaddy from Wasila?" the comedienne Tweeted Wednesday about Johnston. ...

... "I just have so much in common with Levi. We can talk for minutes," Griffin once told Time magazine. "As long as I can quote 'The Bachelorette' to him, I'd say we have a connection." ...

... Bristol Palin and Johnston announced today on the cover of Us Weekly that they're back together and have decided to get hitched. The couple, who ended their rocky romance in March 2009 after a highly publicized breakup, pose together on the magazine's cover with their 18-month-old son Tripp.

The formerly engaged pair says they got back together three months ago after meeting to discuss a custody plan for their son. An intimate text from Johnston later that night rekindled the young lovers' romance.

From the same NY Daily News story:

Following news of his engagement, Griffin went on to joke on Twitter that she was putting herself "on a 5150 psych hold," the same involuntary psychiatric hold once forced upon Britney Spears.


Life is so much easier with a sense of humor.

But these are matters of state.

Yes, anonymouse, it's so sad that Levi and Bristol aren't waiting until they could have a White House wedding.

Glad she's taking the 'news' well.
Time can heal all, ya know.
