OK! magazine reports that Reggie Bush may be ready to make an honest woman out of Kim Kardashian:
Sources have told the mag that the Saints running back and reality-show star with much back are reportedly engaged. The couple have been seen a lot together recently, from sharing some Christmas shopping to ringing in the new year at a South Beach celebration.
Although no rings have been spotted on Kimmy’s fingers, she had said that things were “getting serious” between the two.
How was Kim able to possibly convince Reggie to settle down? Through the way to any man’s heart - his stomach:
“I’m the best cook! People don’t know that, but I cook all the time. My best dish is surprisingly my soul food meals - my fried chicken and my macaroni and cheese and my sweet potato souffle.”
Sounds like a scrumptious reception meal. Wonder if Terrence Howard, Fabolous, Scott Storch or Ray J. will be awaiting Kim in the receiving line?
We can’t wait to see how the honeymoon goes - when the video eventually pops up online.
BOTTLE-BLONDE FATTIES COST THE FACE OF NIKE $160M: The LONDON TIMES, via DEUCE OF DAVENPORT, reports what all those blonde fatties over the years ended up costing Michael Jordan: $160M. And that settlement between MJ and former
maid wife Juanita is the largest celebrity divorce payout in history.
The Times has the warm, fuzzy details of how the Jordan’s relationship blossomed: “He was already a wealthy basketball star with the Chicago Bulls when the couple met on a blind date in 1984. He proposed a few months later but Juanita initially turned him down. A year after their marriage in Las Vegas, he signed a prenuptial agreement that entitled her to half his fortune, but she has claimed only a third.”
It seems somewhat preposterous that Jordan didn’t sign a more restrictive pre-nup with Juanita. But anyone who can continue to endorse myriad products and remain the face of Nike (how can anyone look him in the eye in Beaverton without laughing) in the wake of unending adulterous activity and notorious gambling losses deserves our undying admiration.
MOST importantly, he can still buy plenty of Purple Hooters for the ladies at the Holiday Inn piano bar in Laughlin with the loot he has left over.
STARS ALIGN AS WILLA FORD TIES KNOT WITH MODANO: Mike Modano faces off at the altar this Saturday, as the Dallas Stars star will be marrying “Dancing With The Stars” star Willa Ford:
The FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM reports the nuptials between the skater and money-maker shaker will take place in Athens. However, the article neglects to mention which Athens - Athens, Greece; Athens, Georgia; or the Athens Cafe in Astoria, New York. (We’ll assume there’s a Texas version, and leave it at that.)
It will be interesting to see how many in Stars management received invitations, considering the soon-to-be Mrs. Modano’s previous opinions about her soon-to-be husband’s employer.
But we’re not sure if Modano is really ready for the sacred institution of marriage. During his lengthy NHL career, #9 has been involved in only one fight - a matchup against Rod Brind’Amour.
However, Brind’Amour’s surname roughly translates to “sprig of love”. So, if Modano’s single bout of fisticuffs was really a matter of the heart, Mike & Willa have a chance, after all.
NOW-ANONYMOUS TENNIS PLAYER NETS MISS UNIVERSE: Fading pro tennis player Paradorn Srichaphan, who has seen his star plummet from #9 to #86 in the latest ATP rankings, is marrying former Miss Universe (and Canadian) Natalie Glebova.
Srichaphan, who is Thai, can thank the Miss Universe pageant being held in Bangkok 2005, which is the year, you guessed it, Glebova won.
Glebova to something called the GULF TIMES: “Ever since we met I knew that he was a down-to-earth, humble person.” The Canadian beauty then added in Thai, “Chan rak phi Bon,” or “I love brother Ball.“
Bon, the Thai rendition of the English word ball, is apparently Paradorn’s nickname.
BILL BELICHICK THE HOMEWRECKER STRIKES YET AGAIN: Not satisfied with breaking up one marriage (Sharon Shenocca - right in photo), Bill Belichick is working on gunking up another coupling - this time the marriage of someone named Linda Holliday (left in photo), who was seen with the Patriots cbilloach at the NCAA championship basketball game on Monday night.
BOSTON HERALD: “Holliday, we’re told, is in the process of divorcing Eugene Holliday, a 53-year-old Arkansas businessman who is her third hubby.“
