Levi Johnston's 'Playgirl' Shoot Leaves Some to Imagination

Levi Johnston did not reveal all in his photo shoot for Playgirl, a spokesman for the magazine tells

"Although Playgirl is ecstatic with the footage of the Levi Johnston shoot, and viewers are going to be pleased and surprised, Levi did not go completely full frontal, as was suggested by his camp a few weeks ago," Playgirl rep Daniel Nardicio tells Us.

In late October, Johnston's manager Tank Jones told Us that the 19 year-old Alaskan was "ready to shock the world." Johnston himself proclaimed: "I just get naked. That's what I do."

Alas, says Nardicio, "Levi looks great in the shoot, and was a consummate professional, and we look forward to releasing the photos very soon."

Responding to Playgirl's statement, Jones told Us simply, "People need to wait. I was on the shoot. I know what was shot."

After the excitement of his photo shoot Nov. 12 and 13, Johnston spent his Monday in front of the TV - watching Sarah Palin's appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

"We watched it together," Tank Jones tells Us. "He was really upset. He knew that it was all fake, even the laugh."

"I can't speak for him," Jones continued. "I thought she was very, very sarcastic." When Palin called Johnston 'Ricky Hollywood,' for example, "That was a joke between us," Jones explained. "This young man wants to let this go, but, if she wants to keep it going then let's roll. We're trying to move past this, but, she keeps bringing stuff up."

Jones added that Johnston plans to "address this stuff." On top of the list are Palin's claims that she didn't know Bristol and Johnston were having sex. "If you knew, what kind of parent are you? If you didn't know, what kind of parent are you?"

It seems to me that Levi Johnston is trying to play the role of rogue or bad boy. I'm entirely uncertain if Levi cares about Bristol and his young son. It seems all to easy for him to place the blame on someone else and move the interviewer away from the obvious.

Sure, he could blame Sarah Palin for knowing he was sleeping with Bristol Palin, and for Bristol Palin for not taking birth control pills. However I fail to see the joke when Levi is asked about why wasn't he practicing safe sex and using condoms.

What is this man doing. When does he stop ridiculing himself, firstly the child, secondly the ongoing feud with the Palin family. Lastly the playboy shoot. He will just not stop. What will he do next
