Kat Von D was on Joy Behar’s CNN show (video segment above) to promote her new book, The Tattoo Chronicles. She seemed like such a space cadet to me, but maybe it was the accent, which Jesse seems to share. I’ve never seen an interview with her before and she seems just Jesse’s speed.
Earlier this week, we heard Kat deny that she was broken up with Jesse and heap praises on him, calling him “one of the most kind-hearted, intelligent human beings.” This time, she wouldn’t explain to Joy what she saw in Jesse exactly, but she say “we’re a couple” and called him her “boyfriend.” As in her earlier appearance, Kat wore a big diamond ring on her left ring finger. The NY Post says that her people made it clear ahead of the interview that she would not discuss whether or not she was engaged to Jesse.
Kat Von D bustled onto the set of “The Joy Behar Show” Wednesday with a huge diamond rock on her ring finger — but it was never mentioned on-air. The tattoo artist and TLC reality star confirmed her relation ship with Jesse James but refused to talk about if she’s en gaged to Sandra Bullock’s ex, according to a source on-set. Before the show, “she told Joy very emphatically she did not want to talk about it,” our spy said. “Joy asked some Jesse questions, just not about the ring.” When Behar prodded into the relationship on-air, Kat replied, “Yeah, we’re a couple.” But when Behar followed up with more questions, she threw up her hands and snipped, “Why? . . . I just figured by now ev eryone would be tired of talking about it, it’s so old and boring.” Reps for Kat and James didn’t get back to us.

I didn’t think I would find Kat as annoying as I did. I mean I’ve seen snippets of her show and was in no way impressed by her, but she bugged me here. She seemed just like the type of fool who would fall for Jesse, go on photo ops with him, wear a giant engagement ring and yet try and act all demure about it in interviews when she’s shilling something. It’s stupid and attention-seeking and she definitely deserves to be with Jesse. Good luck with that.
