Hookup Alert: Kathy Griffin and Levi Johnston?

By: Betsy Waldman / August 10, 2009

Yes, Levi Johnston as in Bristol Palin’s baby daddy!!

Kathy Griffin took the 19-year-old to the Teen Choice Awards as her “date”.

The 48-year-old comedian told E!’s Marc Malkin, “Long-distance relationships are not easy, especially when he’s in his igloo and I’m in my Hollywood tower.” Levi didn’t say much, the only thing he managed to spit out was, “I just, you know, look at her, shut up and do what I’m told.”

What did Levi have to say? When he was asked what it’s like being Griffin’s date for the show, he admitted, “I just, you know, look at her, shut up and do what I’m told.”

But has Kathy visited the Palin family in Alaska? “I have played Alaska, but so nowhere near where he grew up,” she said. “I played a Rosie [O’Donnell] lesbian cruise there and I’m pretty sure Levi wasn’t on that cruise. I mean, I’m not positive, but I’m pretty sure Levi is not kicking it with the lesbian cruises.”

We love it.
