Jesse James And Kat Von D Are Engaged. Yes, Really.

I don’t know why this bothers me so much, but it does.

Super-Tat couple Jesse James and Kat Von D are getting married. I realize they’re probably a better fit than Jesse and Sandra Bullock were, but it still rubs me the wrong way.

Maybe it’s because they’ve only been together for a little over six months (if you visit my site enough, you’ll know I take issue with marriage after a year or less of dating), or maybe it’s because in the months following the breakup of his marriage to Sandra Bullock, Jesse James came off as a smug a-hole who seemingly didn’t care about all the pain he caused.

And apparently he still doesn’t mind coming off as a complete douche, because he basically sainted Kat Von D to the press while at the same time jabbed Sandra Bullock in the side. Um, hello Jesse! You were the jerk, not Sandra; there’s no reason for you to rub salt in her wounds.

“You know sometimes the public and press gets it wrong. This is one of those times. 2010 was actually the best year of my life because I fell in love with my best friend. An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs,” James tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day. My love for her is beyond description. So honored that she said ‘yes.’ Growing old with her is going to be a f—-n’ blast!”

I give it less than two years. Does Kat Von D really think Jesse James can be faithful? Is she in denial, or just stupid?

…“There is no one else for me. He’s the one,” The LA Ink star tells PEOPLE.

Asked if she will move from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas, to be with her fiancé, Von D replied, “If only it were that easy. Having two places we call home will be good for now. In the end, home is where the heart is, and my heart’s with him.”

James, 41, and Von D, 28, have been engaged in Twitter PDA in recent weeks. On Jan. 13, James Tweeted: “They say True love will always shine through. The only reason I started Twitter again? so I could publicly profess my love for @thekatvond.”

She responded: “Thank you always supporting me and believing in everything I do. But most of all, thanks for being my best friend.”

Barf. I guess everyone deserves to be happy, but still…..BARF.
