The producer of ‘La Ink’ says Kat and Jesse had a ‘fairy tale romance’ that plays a big part in the new season! Even Jesse’s proposal is documented.
Kat Von D’s whirlwind romance with Jesse James was no publicity stunt! The producer of her TLC show LA Ink said the 29-year-old tattoo artist was completely committed to saying “I do” before she ended their engagement last week. She was so ready to swap vows with America’s most hated philanderer she had already designed her dress, and the worst part is she now has to relive it all when watching the upcoming season of her show.
“We were really able to document what to all of us involved in the story is a fairy tale love story. We really got full access from the moment they got engaged [in January 2011] and how Jesse asked her father and how he proposed, to all the way through her looking for wedding dresses, talks to designers about wedding dresses. She was in love, madly in love.” said the show’s producer Gil Lopez to Us Weekly.
Eight episodes of the new season will feature the rise and fall of Kat’s relationship with Jesse. Kat was so swept up in their fast-paced love story she had already started designing her dress! The couple even started scouting out wedding venues! Now that all her efforts are foiled, Kat’s bummed that it ended but has a “great attitude” about her future.
“She’s bumming. They were both in love. There was the unfortunate distance that tears things apart but she really tried and gave it all… She really committed to it,” said Gil after saying it was the long distance that ruined their ‘happy ever after’ ending.
We understand that she was in love with Jesse and ready to sprint to the altar, but it’s hard to feel too compassionate for the woman who fell for an infamous cheater. Tell us what you think? Will you tune in to watch the ‘fairy tale romance’ between Kat and Jesse play out?
