The drama unfolded after one of the show hosts, Jeff Michael, mentioned her ex Jesse James after they aired a preview of TLC show LA Ink.
In the clip, Kat is seen showing off a tattoo she had just got of James’s face on her arm. Von D was not happy when Jeff highlighted that she had had the etching done just before the break-up.
After storming out, Kat immediately took to Twitter, hitting out at Good Day LA for being insensitive.
Kat tweeted: ‘Dear GoodDayLA, thanks for the waste of a perfectly good morning. Lack of compassion n respect for each other never fails to disappoint me. [Totally] disrespectful intro you guys ‘snuck’ in.’
Just to clarify, she was on Good Day L.A. to promote her new show. Her people were the ones who sent the clip to the show in the first place, and said pre-approved clip consisted of Kat getting Jesse James’ face tattooed on her ribcage, then surprising Jesse James with the Jesse James tattoo, and then embracing Jesse James, then telling the camera she was nervous because she didn’t know how Jesse James would react to the Jesse James tattoo. What they hell else were they supposed to talk about? Her cheap-ass wigs? Her disconcerting gay man’s voice? The utter unwatchability of her show? There’s only so many directions you can go here. The Jesse James route was really the least offensive.
