Levi Johnston Now Concerned About Size of His Johnson?


Levi Johnston's every thought on his journey to the pages of Playgirl continues to be tracked.

Calling all fluffers. Page Six reports that Johnston is now concerned about the size of his Johnson: "We hear that the father of Sarah Palin's grandson has been telling folks at the magazine he is worried about how his manhood may look during the shoot. And to make matters worse, one location for the shoot is a chilly ice rink. But Levi's manager, Tank Johnson, tells Page Six, 'We haven't had any discussions of that nature at all,' and refused to confirm whether Johnson would go full-frontal during the shoot."

Entertainment Tonight followed Johnston to Wasilla and through one of his workouts, and William Shatner performed a reading of Levi's Tweets on The Tonight Show.

Watch both those clips, AFTER THE JUMP...

Boston Legal Finale SPOILER warning
William Shatner and James Spader in Same-Sex Marriage



In last night's Boston Legal finale, characters Denny Crane and Alan Shore got married. It was referred to as a same-sex marriage, not a gay marriage, since neither character is gay, but according to the LA. Times' Mary McNamara, "It was a fitting end to the most devoted, and deranged, couple on television."

I'm not a watcher of Boston Legal, but maybe some of you who are can chime in as to whether or not the treatment of this veered into Chuck and Larry territory. The marriage of convenience had something to do with medical power of attorney related to Shatner's character's Alzheimer's.
