Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has been making more and more forays back out into the public eye as the date of her memoir’s release grows closer. Now, with the book due out in just eight days, she’s been hit with news that’s probably going to put a crimp in her whatever plans she’s had for getting positive coverage during her book tour.
Levi Johnston, the former fiancé of Palin’s daughter Bristol — and the father of the former governor’s first grandchild, 10-month-old Tripp — reportedly plans to sue for joint custody of his son.
“It’s not working. I’m done,” Johnston told the Insider. “It’s going to have to go to court. They just finally pushed me over the edge.”
This could end up being a real headache for Palin. Johnston has previously said he has potentially damaging information about the woman who was once set to be his mother-in-law, and he’s already made some accusations that could hurt her. (Palin has denied them all.) Having more of them in court documents won’t help matters much, not as she’s trying to promote a book and herself. Plus, this means some outlets will be asking her about Johnston during interviews about the book. Palin’s booked for an interview with Oprah Winfrey, for example, who has enough power that she can ensure that no questions are off-limits; that could mean that Palin will be pulled off-message during the big launch of her tour.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
