Well we can add this to the growing list of publicity stunts that don’t work out. As miracles would have it, Kat Von D is now back together with former fiance, Jesse James just a day after her suffering show, LA Ink got canceled. It seems highly convenient that the twosome have found their way back into each others’ tattoo covered arms so quickly — makes you wonder if there was really ever a break-up in the first place. This has publicity stunt written all over it and was just done in a desperate attempt to boost ratings for Von D’s show. I mean, her show gets the boot from TLC just yesterday and now the couple are magically back together? Come on! I mean, clearly this little tactic didn’t work, but nice try. At least now they can show their inked up faces walking around together in public again. But fine I’ll play along: everyone say it with me — hip-hip-hooray for the happy couple…now moving on.
How do we know the exciting news to be true? The pair, who called off their engagement last month, posted on Twitter separate photos of themselves locked in embraces with each other. James even added a caption under one photo saying “para siempre,” which is Spanish for forever. If he keeps up the sweet talk like that, Kat’s sure to get another tattoo of his face on her body. But if these photos aren’t enough to convince you that these two little lovebirds are back and better than ever, then you should know that James confirmed the news in an interview with People magazine, and maintained that Von D is once again wearing her ring. In a statement, James said “Sometimes you are only given one chance in life…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.” It’s true, love knows no boundaries, or in this case — no ratings.
