Levi Johnston: Not Much Parenting At Palin Home

The father of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's first grandchild is speaking out in Vanity Fair magazine about what went on inside the Palin household.

Levi Johnston says in the magazine's October issue that the Palin home in Wasilla was different from what most people think. The 19-year-old lived with the Palins for two months awaiting the birth of the child he has with Palin's 18-year-old daughter, Bristol. The two were going to get married but called off the wedding.

Johnston says there wasn't much parenting. He says Palin's children pretty much took care of themselves, and did the cooking, cleaning and laundry.

Palin has four other children. The youngest, Trig, is 1 year old.

Excerpts of the interview were posted Wednesday on the magazine's Web site.
