Talk about your short engagements.

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston, who got engaged on July 14, reportedly called it quits later that same day. And now their relationship – and rumored reality TV series – is kaput.

“It’s over,” Palin told People magazine. “I broke up with him.”

The reason? In her interview with People, Palin insinuated he was two-timing her and may have gotten that girl pregnant. She also expressed distaste for his fondness for the spotlight.

“The final straw was him flying to Hollywood for what he told me was to see some hunting show but come to find out it was that music video mocking my family,” she said. “He’s just obsessed with the limelight and I got played.”

One can only imagine the satisfied, I-told-you-so grin Bristol’s mother, Sarah, enjoyed. One can only imagine the celebrating that went on in the writers’ rooms of late night TV shows.

Reality show junkies will have to deal with their disappointment that the Palin-Johnston relationship wasn’t captured by cameras for a reality show.

Wait, can you have a reality show about an engagement that lasts less than 24 hours?

Probably not.

But here’s an idea: Put Spencer Pratt and Levi Johnston in a house together.
