ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: We wrote last week that, based on the initial clip distributed by Oprah Winfrey's shop, Sarah Palin seemed to be seeking a ceasefire with the father of her grandson. Now that the full Oprah interview is out — not so much. 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."Asked about Johnston's relationship with his son, Tripp, Palin said: "He hasn't seen the baby for a while, but we will let that be the discussion between Bristol and Levi, as they work out their relationship. Because Levi will forever be the father of this beautiful little baby, and I continue to hope for the best, and pray for Levi."
