Reggie Bush may not realize it, but he was at his best when he and Kim Kardashian were dating, so should he just marry her? After carefully looking at where Reggie was during his three-year run as Kim’s boyfriend, there’s no doubt that she made him better. Reggie definitely needs to reunite with her, stat, AND put a ring on it. Here’s why:
When Reggie was with Kim, he was winning on the football field and was a major player in the New Orleans Saints Super Bowl victory in 2010. But his career hasn’t been the same since they broke up.
Reggie now plays for the winless Miami Dolphins and hasn’t been the impact player this season that he was for the Saints. He reportedly had lunch with Kim on October 29th, and the next day he rushed for over 100 yards in a game against the New York Giants. (This was only the second time he accomplished this feat in his five-year career.) Coincidence?
Being with Kim Kardashian means a lot of media exposure, which can be quite attractive to companies looking for a spokesperson. (Kim’s made millions off of her selling her brand, and no one quite knows what she does.) Reggie Bush looks good, speaks well, is a professional athlete, and has remained controversy-free, if you ignore the shadiness surrounding his Heisman Trophy. So he could definitely get some endorsement money by getting back together with Kim. And if the Dolphins keep losing, he’s going to need to do something to elevate his brand.
Before Lamar Odom married Khloe Kardashian, he wasn’t known by non-sports fans, but that’s no longer the case. He’s bigger than ever now, co-starring in a reality show and starring in commercials. Being managed by Kim and Khloe’s mom Kris Jenner has definitely helped, so Reggie should just follow Lamar’s template of marrying a Kardashian, getting managed by Kris, and watch his fortune and fame increase.
The Real Thing
Reggie reportedly started dating Melissa Molinaro in June, a woman who looks a lot like Kim after their break up. It completely appeared as if Reggie was trying to make Kim jealous, and it seemed to have worked. Kim filed a lawsuit against Old Navy in July for running the ad below, where Melissa appears very Kardashian-like. Why waste time on an imitator when you can have the real thing, Reggie?
Best Of Both Worlds
Kim is clearly focused on her career, and it’s not likely that she’ll completely leave Los Angeles. Since Reggie is playing football on the other side of the country in Miami, he can have the stability of being in a relationship while enjoying some of the freedom of being single. Or Kim could tape a season of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami.”
The career span of an athlete has a very limited shelf life, but there’s no telling how long a reality star can get money. It’s been said that Reggie isn’t comfortable in the spotlight, yet his discomfort isn’t noticeable in previous appearances on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Reggie doesn’t have to play a major role in a reality show. He could just make occasional appearances with Kim on one of her shows after he retires from his football career and keep up enough of a public image to make money of his own.
If Reggie Bush can accept that Kim Kardashian puts her career first, there’s no doubt that their marriage could last longer than Kim’s 72 days with Kris Humphries. Do you think they should get back together? Let us know in the poll below.
