Jesse James and Kat Von D Announce Their Engagement

Because clearly he’s an idiot for reasons too numerous to count here, Jesse James has officially announced his engagement to Kat Von D, but not before showing up at a high-profile event an entire week ago with a rock on Kat’s finger. So, my, what a complete surprise. People reports:

“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!”

2010 was “the best year of my life.” Jesus Christ. Did Jesse James seriously just say that? 2010, the year where it was revealed he gratuitously cheated on Sandra Bullock with multiple women – and whatever this is – was the best year of his life? Okay, maybe it was because it sounds like the guy had all kinds of crazy sex, but you don’t say that shit out loud to People magazine unless you’re some sort of moron who bangs Naz-

Never mind.
