Alaskan beauty Bristol Palin had some chilly words about her baby’s daddy Levi Johnston when RadarOnline.com caught up with the teen mom during Monday night’s announcement of the participants for the eleventh season of ABC’s huge hit, Dancing With The Stars.

“I haven’t heard anything, I don’t pay attention to the tabloids,” Bristol, 19, told us exclusively, when we asked about Levi’s recent comments that she is obsessed with fame and wants to be in the spotlight. Said Palin, “I don’t pay attention about what he’s doing.”
Bristol was first thrust into the national spotlight in the summer of 2008, after it was revealed that she was expecting a child out-of-wedlock just as her politically-conservative mother Sarah Palin was named as the vice presidential candidate for the Republican party. Bristol briefly got back together with Johnston this June, even getting engaged to him, but the reunion was short-lived.
Bristol said she doesn’t think her ongoing drama with Johnston will become an underlying theme of her appearances on DWTS this season, as she said she doesn’t think the show aims to cast “that kind of spotlight,” and that its rather “fun and positive,” instead.
“I want to get in shape, I want to learn new dance moves and I want to step out of my comfort zone,” she told us.
Bristol will compete on the popular show against other celebs such as Jersey Shore‘s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, The Hills Audrina Patridge, singer Michael Bolton, Brady Bunch mom Florence Henderson, Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey and former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner, among others.
Dancing With The Stars’ eleventh season premieres September 20 on ABC.
