If this summer was the summer of splits (see: EVERYONE who took a match to their relationship), then December is the month of romantic reminders of decades past. First Richard Marx and Daisy Fuentes dug up our memories of the early 90s when they got married last week. And now I’m trolling the internet reminiscing about the best that 2007 has to offer (Juicy Couture terry cloth tube dresses and pictures of Brit Brit at the gas station) because two gems that got famous in the ’00s have confirmed they’re a thing.
Tattoo artist/former vanilla gorilla caretaker Kat Von D and Jackass star/human crash test dummy Steve-O have been working each other’s junk for a couple weeks now, but they recently let everyone know that their situation has made the jump from “Random Hookup” to “Full-time Fucking“. Earlier this week, Kat and Steve (or “OD” – something Michael called them at least ten times before I realized he wasn’t talking about Garfield’s best dog friend) started throwing up cutesy couple selfies on Instagram. Then Steve-O decided yesterday was the day they make it obvious and posted a picture of them sucking face outside of the Coral Castle Museum in Miami, Florida.
I was really hoping they would have stuck with the ’00s theme and taken a T-Mobile Sidekick picture in front of the FOR RENT sign where Les Deux used to be or the liquidation sale at Kitson, but this is fine too, I guess.
Speaking of the ’00s, this isn’t the first time Kat Von D and Steve-O dated each other. They hooked up for a bit back in 2009, and that ended with Steve-O dragging her on MySpace. MySpace! I take back what I said before – it doesn’t get any more ’00s than coming for someone on MySpace.
Hopefully it works out better this time, because I don’t totally hate these two together. They’re sort of like a Florida flea market knock-off Gomez and Morticia Addams, and I’m into it.
