Kat Von D gets back with Jesse James after ‘LA Ink’ is canceled


My mom watches LA Ink. My point? My mother is a lovely woman, but she sometimes has crappy taste in television programming (she lives for the Real Housewives too). My other point? Kat Von D may play it like she’s so hardcore, but at the end of the day, my mother watched and enjoyed her show. Kat Von D is not as cool as she thinks she is. So my mom is going to have to find new tattoo-themed programming, because LA Ink was just canceled. In the lead up to this season’s premiere, Kat did everything she could to promote the show, including breaking up with Jesse James, bangin’ Bam Margera, and throwing hissy fits in interviews. All for naught!

Kat Von D’s LA Ink wasn’t permanent. The reality show centering around Jesse James’ ex-fiancee and her work at High Voltage Tattoo in West Hollywood has been canceled. TLC told Us Weekly in a statement that the “current season of LA Ink will be its last.”

“The network is proud of what the series has accomplished in its four seasons, following Kat Von D’s journey as an artist from Miami to Los Angeles,” TLC said.

Von D said that the decision to end the show was her own. “I love how me deciding not to continue doing LA Ink turns into [the show] being ‘cancelled,’” she tweeted. “Thanks, TLC. Regardless of everything, I remain grateful.”

Just last month the reality star, 29, and James, 42, called off their engagement. In an episode of LA Ink that aired just two days after announcing the split, von D (real name: Katherine von Drachenberg) got Sandra Bullock’s ex-hubby’s face tattooed on her body.

In a Facebook post last month, von D admitted the past year — which included her house burning down and the loss of her beloved cat — had been a tough one. “As much as I’d like to picture [myself] being this strong, independent woman, the truth is most of the time I’m not as strong as I’d like to be,” she said. “But I’m still trying.”

The series finale of LA Ink will air Sept. 15 at 10 p.m. EST.

Kat has been on Twitter, trying to convince the world that TLC didn’t “pull a Kate Gosselin” and fire her dumb ass. She ran to People Mag and had them update her “official statement” three times within an hour, and she finally got it perfect (in her mind), saying, “In an effort to capitalize on my recent breakup, the network has decided to focus their energy on re-editing events that didn’t happen while filming,. I have no regrets and am very proud of the original footage. In my opinion, any attempt to compromise the honesty of that would be an insult to my fans and viewers. As grateful as I am to have been a part of a show like LA Ink, I’m ready to end this chapter and want to focus on other projects now.” Poor sucky baby.

For the record, I do think TLC just decided to cancel the show. I don’t think Kat was all “It’s my decision, I cannot go on!” She’s such a drama queen.

UPDATE: So, after I wrote all that last night, this happened:

Kat Von D may no longer have her show, but she’s back with her man.

Even as TLC announced the cancellation of LA Ink, Von D and Jesse James – who had called off their engagement last month – posted on Twitter separate photos of themselves locked in embraces.

James went a step further and added the caption, “para siempre” – Spanish for “forever.”

In an interview with PEOPLE, James made it official. The engagement is back on, and Von D is once again wearing her ring.

“Sometimes you are only given one chance in life,” he says. “It was up to me to open my eyes and see it. That girl is my chance. I will never stop fighting and striving to hold on to her. Showing her how special she is, and how much I love her.”

They are two of the suckiest famewhore dirtbag douches EVER. Enjoy cheating on each other, d-bags.

    They deserve each other honestly.

  2. brin says:

    Your last statement said it all! They deserve each other.
    Kaiser….isn’t there a show called NY Ink? Your mom can try that.

  3. karine says:

    Thank the Lord! Cause all of us having been holding our breath until America’s sweethearts found their way back to eachother!

    I feel like a need a hepatitis shot just looking at them.

  4. Quest says:

    This woman is so “rancid” looking, probably smells like it too

  5. Christine says:

    I bet they try to get their own show. ~gag~

  6. Whatamess! says:

    *bowing head in prayer*
    May they never procreate

  7. tracking says:

    Just when I thought they might be on the cusp of oblivion. Too much to hope for.

  8. francesca says:

    @Quest – Finally THAT is the word I’ve been looking for to describe her. Rancid is the truth. She is physically repellant. Ugh.

  9. Samigirl says:

    @Christine-YOU BEAT ME TOOOOOO IT! A JJ/KVD reality show will happen within a year. Lucky for us, 100% of couples who do reality shows end up breaking up…give it 6 months, and we will be re-reading the break up story :) Is it wrong for me to revel in the misery of others?

  10. Original Bee says:

    Kat and Jesse are obviously both idiots. But, I wonder if part of Kat’s reluctance to let Jesse go has something to do with the tatoo of his face she got inked on her. Every day she has to look at his creepy serial killer eyes staring back at her from her shoulder blade. This is the reason I would never get a tatoo of a guy’s name or face on me. I don’t want to be stuck with some jerk I can’t stand because I don’t want to have to get him lasered off of me at some point.

  11. Kellie says:

    Does anyone know why she wears a wig?

  12. Jingo Jango says:

    OH this is so much fun. Count down to break up #2.

  13. Kelly says:

    Not sure it’s a wig – her part looks like a real one – but she has some ratty-ass extensions.

    ETA: can we all chip in and buy her some better sunglasses? We’d be doing a service to all mankind.

  14. lila says:

    She has way to many tattoos to wear a print dress like that. My poor eyes keep unfocusing like she one of those magic eye 3d pictures.

    They honestly deserve each other. I hope sandy is laughing merrily at this one.

  15. Thea says:

    Is it me or did anyone else think the tat of him she got on her side, he looked mentally challenged? I am trying to be politically correct and not say retarded as to insult people who may be and cant help it. I think the Centers for Disease control needs to be called because I think they have some strains of STD’s that havent actually been discovered yet.

  16. Mia says:

    Guess that publicity stunt of a broken engagement didn’t work.

  17. MollyB says:

    Wasn’t it on Family Guy that someone was described as looking as if they smelled like salty garbage? She looks like that.

  18. Sigh. says:

    I questioned the timing of that tattoo, the breakup, and the premiere. Something seemed…”Off.” A (failed) publicity stunt mayhaps, knowing very few to no one would be interested enough in their blossoming showmance to actually tune in on a reg basis?

    The way TLC went after Jon Gosselin when he tried to halt production of the now thankfully defunct “Kate + 8,” I SERIOUSLY doubt KVD has the power in her contract to just up’n'quit without TLC coming out ahead in some way. Her show was probably underperforming, and her departure was mutually agreed upon, if not facilitated by the network.

    Either way, let JJ + KVD be and stay together, para siempre, por favor. I’m sure the Center for Disease Control is very happy to know that their scuzziness will be contained to one general, less contagious area.

  19. Nancy C. says:

    I don’t know, but i like her!

  20. Stacia says:

    Cant believe she’s only 29. Think what she will look like when she’s 60 with all those tatts.

    And I thought as a tatto artist the rule of thumb is to never put a tatt of your BF’s name or face on you…you know that relationship wont last and will later reget that.

  21. Kelly says:

    @Stacia, I think about that all the time, seeing these dipshits with fairies (I apologize in advance if I’ve offended any fine CB readers who have fairy tattoos), Tasmanian Devils, “Chinese” symbols… Not to mention face tattoos (the new cashier at the natural foods store has a chain of Celtic runes in the shape of a cross all over his face – no shit). Man, there are going to be some incredibly ugly old people walking around in about 30 years.

  22. stella says:

    LA Ink was on the same time as Jersey Shore. What a way to go. At least she and Jess can be together now. Hey, everybody needs somebody. These two are peas in a pod.

  23. Phoenix says:

    Dammit, I loved ‘LA Ink’. I wasn’t a fan of all the manufactured drama Kat in general, but I thought it was a decent enough show. I’m glad these two are back together. They deserve each other. At least now no one else needs to date either of them!

  24. Goofpuff says:

    Wow famewhores much those two? Totally agree that they’re going to try to get their own show.

  25. Iggles says:

    Ugh. They’re a gross couple. It won’t last.

  26. yo-ho_ahoy says:

    why do u guys give fame whores like this publicity? I wudnt put it past her 2 have ‘arranged’ 4 her house 2b burnt & her poor moggy 2b ‘put away’ all 4 ratings & more publicity. Disgusting & shameful behaviour is no longer taboo – instead it is rewarded with interviews, photo shoots, reality shows & the like – case in point, Kartrashians, Octomomster, Paris, Linnocent. They’r all yours America, & the rest of the world couldn’t be more relieved.

  27. the original bellaluna says:

    “If the first (2nd, 3rd, 4th, 15th) publicity stunt doesn’t succeed, try, try again.”

    FYI, Kat, maybe TLC wasn’t amused by your diva antics when you were supposed to be promoting your show.

  28. DreamyK says:

    They were never apart. It was a ratings scam. These two have no shame. I wish them well.

  29. 4Real says:

    If she has hair why does she wear all those tacky wigs on the show? These two make me gag!

  30. original kate says:

    you’d think these two would have figured out by now you can’t shine shit.

  31. sluggo says:

    Agree about the possibility of a JJ/KVD reality show. They’ll be shopping it around: “LA STINK. The story of two overblown famewhores who are IN LUUUUUV: the drama of their famewhore lives as they tick out the last seconds of their fifteen minutes of lame, and the even bigger drama of their frantic search for a good antibiotic.”

  32. LeeLoo says:

    I was a fan of Kat before she began dating Jesse. I admired the fact she was open about her addictions. Now I think she’s allowed him to turn her into a piece of trash like him. I really hope Kat comes to her sesnes and they don’t get married.

  33. Penguen says:

    I can’t stand Kat Von D, but there was a time when I really liked her show. This was back before she fired her original staff, and it was all about the tattoos.

    Once they got rid of the other female tattoo artists, they started hiring actors to come in and start pre-scripted drama. TLC edited the hell out of everything, creating situations that didn’t even happen. That is when the show went to hell.

    So, as far as I’m concerned, this show was cancelled years ago. And I totally agree with the posters here who said that the breakup was manufactured as well. Blah.

  34. taxi says:

    All that ink is a health hazard too – hard to find any pre-cancerous lesions which may need removal. Unfortunately, inked-up people often get a lot of sun while they’re showing off the “body art”.

  35. Nikki Girl says:

    Good God they are stupid. JJ embarrasses himself every time he opens his mouth (or types on a keyboard for that matter).

  36. Happy21 says:

    LMAO “can’t shine shit”…love it!

  37. katie says:

    i adore kat, i cant stand jesse james but kat is awesome. i wish she had better taste in men. and i dont know why people say she looks dirty… her hair is clean, shes usually wearing glasses so you cant see her face to really judge, and shes wearing casual clothing that covers her body. i wouldnt consider her a famewhore at all, but i would be HIGHLY dissapointed if she and jesse start a show. that would seem like the opposite of everything shes saying right now and id really lose some respect for her.

  38. Bodhi says:

    “Unfortunately, inked-up people often get a lot of sun while they’re showing off the “body art”. ”

    People who don’t care about their tattoos get a lot of sun on them. People who do know how to cover them up if & when they have to be in the sun. In my experience, its the people with the shittest tattoos who show them off the most

  39. margaritachum says:

    @ bodhi
    i was about to write the same thing. people that have tattoos because it means something to them don’t show them everyday at every single hour. people that have them because ‘it’s cute and everybody has them so i’m getting one even though it has no meaning to me’, show them off like it’s a prize or something.

    i have tattoos and most of the times people don’t see it. now it’s summer and i wear a lot of dresses but i protect my skin and try to be out of the sun as much as i can.

  40. Memphis says:

    I feel like a need a hepatitis shot just looking at them. -Karine

    Love that! haha

    So sick of Jess ‘d0uchbag’ James and Kat F-ing Von D! He will cheat again and she will cling to him till for all shes worth, at least until the next unappealing man comes along that makes her feel all warm and fuzzy. I just hope they don’t have kids.

    The sad part is she has real talent as a tattoo artist but all that is being overlooked due to her incredible lack of good decision making skills.

  41. Camille says:

    The announcement of these 2 being back together makes me think the whole ‘we split up’ business was just a dumb way of them trying to promote whatever they have to promote, but when it didn’t work they ‘got back together’. :roll:
