Kathy Griffin Has Lovey Dovey Date Night With Bristol Palin's Former Fiancé Levi Johnston
Could the Teen Choice Awards have gotten any more bizarre?
Controversial comedian Kathy Griffin certainly lived up to her kooky reputation by bringing none other than the fame-hungry Levi Johnston to Sunday evening's taping of the FOX Teen Choice Awards at Hollywood's Universal Studios.
Griffin and Bristol Palin's former fiance and baby daddy walked hand-in-hand down the red carpet to a sea of surprised expressions.
Despite the 29-year age gap between the two, Johnston seemed particularly smitten and was overheard gushing about how "beautiful" Griffin looked for the occasion. But that's about all he was able to say -- it appeared as though he'd been instructed to keep his mouth closed and instead Griffin did all the talking. Their date night continued inside the theater as the two flirted and laughed side-by-side throughout the show.
A source close to the 19-year-old Johnston told Tarts that he's loving the "Hollywood life" and his own future reality show isn't out of the question ...
Fashion Faux: Ed Westwick In Ballet Flats
British bad boy Ed Westwick lived up to his saucy rep by donning a tight James Dean shirt with jeans to Sunday's Teen Choice Awards. But we couldn't help but wonder what he was thinking with those black ballet-like flats ... Does this mean he's starting a new trend for males to get in touch with their err, graceful side? He even stood with his toes poised outwards like a pro in first position.
"Am I as sexy as James Dean? I'll let you answer ..." he crooned backstage.
As for the biggest female trendsetter of the evening, we're going to go with Kristen Stewart. Although she looked a little like she'd just rolled out of her bed, the "Twilight" starlet rocked out in a spiky skirt made from ornate pins that would make any punkster proud.
The Teen Choice Awards air Monday at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
