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.

As usual, everything out of her mouth is a lie. TLC cancelled it. Before this season even aired, she knew it may be her last, if ratings didn't improve, which is why it seemed like the whole Jesse thing was for ratings only. Why would a network want to make someone on a failing show look bad? That makes no sense what so ever. She can't take not being liked or being the center of attention, so of course she's going to try to make it look like she was the one who didn't want to continue on with it. She deserves ever bad thing that happens to her and I am SO glad her stupid show was cancelled! Now she can go back to being a nobody/hanger-oner that no one gives a crap about.

Yeah. Sure it was your decision, Kat. If it was so successful that TLC couldn't walk away from, you would've been offered more $$ than you could refuse. Try again.

Thank God! I used to look at her show, but not this season. Her publicity stunt with JJ was the last straw. Good riddance.

She looks bad all on her own. Doesn't need the network to help her with that.

Lulz. Apparently she's back with Jesse James and they're engaged again. A lot of Kat Von D news today.
It's nice to see these two kids worked things out. They're the new JFK and Jackie O. Camelot has returned!

Ever since the original group of tattoo artists left, especially Corey the show and Kat has gotten boring. I am sure TLC is starting to clean house of the prima donnas. Kate and Kat.

I was fortunate enough to get a tat by Corey Miller @ L.A. Ink. Even he didn't like the "drama"!! The show should have stayed with the premise of doing awesome tattoos with incredible artists! No one wants to watch a soap opera in a tattoo shop. And the saddest of all was Kat turned into a raving selfish bitch as the show went on. Her art was NEVER as good as those around her either. Hopefully, TLC was put on something that is actually interesting and fun, instead of the made up garbage that is on now! Via con Kat Von D, you raging bitch!! You are SO PASSE!!!

i watched 2 episodes awhile back and COULD NOT STAND all the chick drama in the show.maybe if it was based more on tatooing and not who she is screwing it might have made it better!

If she did decided to end the show (which I doubt) TLC sure didn't waste anytime yelling about a contract, they were pretty quick to show her to door and announce the end!
