Kat Von D Posts Facebook Manifesto: "What Can I Say? I Suck"
Kat Von D's wallowing may have gone a little too far. The LA Ink star has had quite a rough week, beginning with her Twitter announcement confirming she and fiancé Jesse James had split. Then, her scheduled appearance of Fox 11's Good Day L.A. imploded after Kat stormed off set when the program showed a clip from her TLC reality show including Jesse — sparking a feud between Kat and anchor Jillian Barberie Reynolds. Now, Kat has posted a lengthy note on her Facebook page, addressing her recent actions.
In the note, entitled "What Can I Say? I Suck" Kat addresses her abrupt departure from the show and her breakup from Jesse.
"Most of the time I’m good at rolling with the punches when things don't go 'as planned,' " Kat wrote of her actions yesterday on the morning program. "But somehow, I allowed today to get the best of me. As much as I'd like to picture me being this strong, independent woman, the truth is most of the time I'm not as strong as I'd like to be — but I'm still trying.”
She added of the Good Day L.A. incident: "Although my intentions were never to offend or hurt anyone’s feelings, this isn't an apology for walking out on a silly morning show interview this morning — and this isn’t an attempt at justifying anything either."
Kat also wrote about dealing with the media's perception of her after she started dating Jesse — whose image was tainted by his very public cheating scandal while married to Sandra Bullock.
"In my relationship I never before felt as solid and strong— even though the world said different by all the criticism," she wrote. "Lost a lot of friends, and even caused turmoil within some of my family members because of the bulls**t the media put out there.
"Some fans even changed their perception of who they thought I was," she continued, adding that she "never planned on walking away from this relationship, let alone the timing of things."
