Since she's been dating New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush, Kim Kardashian has made it to the sports pages in addition to the gossip pages. The star of E!'s Keeping Up with the Kardashians will also appear at Wrestlemania XXIV this Sunday. She recently chatted with SI.com's Jimmy Traina about these things and more.
SI.com: You and Reggie Bush have been dating for a while now. How'd you guys meet?
Kardashian: We met through friends. Matt Leinart is one of Reggie's best friends and he introduced us.
SI.com: Reggie has already made a couple of appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians this season. Was it hard to get him to agree to be on the show? I've heard that he's not crazy about all the attention.
Kardashian: He hates the paparazzi, but he's such a big part of my life that you can't not be on the show if you're in my life. I'm glad we filmed the show during his season, because he was only on every now and then. The only times he was on the show were on the few occasions he was home in L.A. Plus, I didn't want to make it the 'Kim and Reggie Show,' and have him on all the time.
SI.com: You said that Reggie hates the paparazzi. How bad does it get for you guys?
Kardashian: We try to be super low key. We know if we go to an event, we're gonna be photographed, but he'll still say "ugh, I don't want to go."
SI.com: Funny, I just used a picture in our Caught in the Act gallery that sort of shows that.
Kardashian: Yeah, he's usually OK at events. He really only gets annoyed when we're out and about and we get followed. There's this really funny picture of us from Sundance a couple of months ago. We were walking down the street and he had this look on his face. He was mouthing to me, "I'm gonna knock one of these paparazzi out. And I was just smiling. And I have to tell him to calm down because he'll get in trouble if he does. That was our first time at Sundance and we didn't know it was going to be paparazzi central. That first day was so hectic and crazy and he was like "Where's the car, we're getting the car." But we were just going a block away.
SI.com: OK, I have to ask a very hard-hitting question that any self-respecting journalist would ask.
SI.com: Do you like the nickname you and Reggie have been given: The Bush and The Tush?
Kardashian: We laugh at it. It's definitely funny. Sometimes my family calls us Kush, but The Bush and The Tush is better.
SI.com: Did you go to any Saints games last season?
Kardashian: Yeah, I went to almost all of them.
