Kim Kardashian was recently spotted out on a lunch date with Reggie Bush, prompting rumors that the couple might be getting back together. It might seem like a rather ridiculous idea, but Kim has plenty of good reasons to reconcile with Reggie (besides having a guy to give her a Valentine's Day gift, of course). Here's a look at why Kim might be plotting to win him back:
She's Jealous of Ray J
This reason seems silly on the surface, but think about it - Kim's old sex tape partner has been getting a lot of attention lately because of his relationship with the late, great Whitney Houston. It's got to be eating Kim up inside that a man that she can stand is getting more publicity than she is, and it probably also annoyed her that news of Whitney's death took the spotlight off of her little lunch date. Getting serious with Reggie again would basically be her way of whistling to the press and shouting, "Look at me! Look at me!"
She Can't Land a Quarterback
So far Kim's plan to start a Bible study group has failed to win over religious Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. She also had to begrudgingly deny rumors that she's dating New Jersey Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, who probably wouldn't look at Kim twice since he's allegedly dating Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl Kate Upton. So perhaps Kim should stick to trying to win over an NFL star that she knows she has a shot at instead of going after a quarterback. All the good ones are taken, anyway (except Tebow, of course, but it will only be a matter of time before Katy Perry wins him over).
It Would be Great for One of Her Reality Shows
Kim needs a love interest on one of her reality shows that viewers have a connection to, and what's better for TV than an on-again, off-again relationship? Just look at Ross and Rachel on "Friends." Getting Reggie onboard to star as her new love interest would definitely send ratings through the roof, but hopefully Kim doesn't actually see herself as the next Jennifer Aniston.
Kris Humphries Made her Afraid to Try Something New
Or maybe Kim isn't just trying to cast Reggie on one of her shows - it's possible that she's looking for a real relationship with him. Being with the Humph probably made her realize just how hard it is for her to adjust to having someone new in her life - she quickly found that she couldn't stand some of Kris' quirks, and she simply didn't like him once she really got to know him. Her experience with Kris might have scared her away from dating new guys, so she'd probably prefer to be with someone she already knows extremely well like Reggie. After all, Kim is all about keeping her life as comfortable as possible.
She Wants to Show her Old Navy Look-Alike Who the Real Kim K. Is
The last woman Reggie was linked to was Melissa Molinaro, who is probably most well-known as the Kim look-alike from the Old Navy "Super C-U-T-E" ad. It just had to kill Kim that Reggie replaced her with a lowly commercial star, and of course the fact that she sued Old Navy over the ad further complicated her feelings for Melissa. Kim might also be trying to butter Reggie up since he could be called to testify as a character witness when the Old Navy lawsuit goes to court - obviously he won't say anything negative about her if they start dating again, and stealing him back from Melissa would be icing on the cake.
So do you think Kim and Reggie are still in love, or is she plotting to win him back for one of the reasons above?
