Asked by Oprah about Levi Johnston, Palin, R-Alaska, responded: “I don’t think a national television show is the place to discuss some of things he’d been doing and saying.”

She continued: “By the way, I don’t know if we call him Levi — I hear he goes by the name Ricky Hollywood now, so, if that’s the case, we don’t want to mess up this gig he’s got going…. Kind of this aspiring, aspiring porn — the things that he’s doing. It’s kind of heartbreaking.”

Oprah clarified that Palin was referencing Johnston’s decision to pose for “Playgirl.”

Said Palin: “I call that porn, yes. So it’s a bit heartbreaking to see the road that he’s on right now.”
