Kat Von D Attempts to Pretend She's Not a Media Whore

So the many-tattooed Kat Von D recently added another image to her fleshy landscape, and awkwardly enough, it's a picture of Jesse James. Awkward because 1) despite a ridiculously over-the-top courtship and engagement, they're now broken up, and 2) it's a picture of Jesse as a fifth grader. Creepy much? Anyway, it seems like an obvious conversation starter ("So, how exactly does it feel to have permanently engraved your former lover's 10-year-old face into your skin? I mean, on a scale of Oh Shit to Holy God Just How Drunk Was I, where would you say you stand?"), but when Von D recently appeared on Good Day L.A., she took such offense to the newscaster's mention of the tattoo that she stormed off the set.

Let's recap, shall we? Kat Von D, who is known for exactly two things—being covered in 40 bazillion tattoos and banging Jesse James—got pissed that a TV host brought up the topics that essentially define her as a quasi-celebrity?


Ladies and gentlemen, mark this occasion ... I think we've officially found the one famous-for-nothing douchebag that's even more clueless than Paris Hilton.

Apparently after Good Day L.A. host Jillian Reynolds introduced Von D and mentioned both the breakup and the James tattoo, Von D got up and walked out of the building. Kat then jumped on Twitter to post the following, presumably while searching fruitlessly for a spellcheck function:

Dear GoodDayLA, thanks for the waste of a perfectly good morning. Lack of compassion n respect for eachother never fails to dissapoint me.

Reynolds responded,

Why was it disrespectful? We said you guys broke up. (...) We showed the clip your publicist sent. It showed you and Jesse. Were we not supposed to mention you broke up?

At which point Von D wrote something about how it was disrespectful and blah blah blah bullshitcakes. Listen, I might actually have a single, solitary iota of sympathy for her if she and James hadn't self-publicized the living hell out of their relationship. They wanted media attention for their affair then—including James publicly gloating that sex with Von D was '100 percent' better than with ex-wife Sandra Bullock—and they don't want it now? Sorry, it doesn't work that way.

I mean, really. Did Von D honestly think she was invited on television at this particular moment in time because anyone gives a damn about her TLC show? No. The public doesn't care about L.A. Ink. They'd much rather hear about just how stupid she feels for that freaky-ass tattoo.

What do you think—was the host's mention of Von D's new tattoo inappropriate?
