Kat Von D

'LA Ink' CANCELLED

8/18/2011 12:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0818-kat-von-d-2BN
TLC has had enough of Kat Von D -- the network has announced her reality show "LA Ink" has officially been canceled.

A rep for TLC just released a statement, claiming, the network "has decided that the current season of LA Ink will be its last." The final episode will air next month.

The rep adds, "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."

The show originally premiered in 2007 -- and got a small ratings boost last month, after Kat split from Jesse James. But apparently it wasn't enough.

Kat writes, "I love how me deciding to not continue doing LA Ink, turns into being 'cancelled.' Thanks @TLC."

Wow! First Kate Gosselin and now Kat. TLC has decided to take the trash out. Now if only some of these other networks would do the same. (I'm thinking specifically of E! and all the Kartrashian crap.)

looks like tlc is doing some reality tv cleaning for kate plus eight and now Kat is going to have to do inking without camera's though odds are the public has not seen the last of Kat. for sooner or later she will return. and guess since Kat says she was the one who decided to end the show guess she got tired of being in the reality tv spotlight. mostly lately from being the latest conquest of jesse james.

Kat should be thankful the show lasted this long. She's famous for nothing, you can pretty much compare here to Paris & Lindsey at this point.
