Hell hath no fury like a disapproving mother!
Khloe Kardashian-Odom is allegedly angling to bring her lovelorn big sis back together with her old flame Reggie Bush. But there’s a hurricane threatening to put the kibosh on a joyous reunion.
And her name is Denise Griffin.
Kim Kardashian has turned to her ex-beau for comfort after splitting up with soon-to-be ex-hubby Kris Humphries, if Hollywood snitches are to be believed. (Kim’s one-time publicist says she’s never gotten over Bush.) But Denise, Reggie’s mom, is certain the “damaged” reality star has ulterior motives for snuggling up to the NFL hunk.
Momma Bush is pulling out all the stops to ensure the beauty doesn’t snag her son again.
“For Reggie’s sake, Denise put on a smiling face when he dated Kim in the past, but she was never a fan of her or any of the Kardashians,” a spy confided in the Jan. 2 issue of The National Enquirer.
Bush, now with the Miami Dolphins, reportedly ended his relationship with the star because Denise was not pleased with the idea of her little Heisman Trophy winner marrying a woman who rose to fame after shaking her groove thang in a clandestine eff flick.
“Denise was horrified when Reggie first brought Kim home to meet the family in late 2007 because it was after her infamous sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J hit the Internet.”
Reggie and Kim’s separation came less than a month after the couple, who had been dating for almost three years, reportedly bought a $4.8 million love nest together in Beverly Hills.
“Reggie’s mom just could not get over the fact that Kim had a sex tape. Reggie and his family are very conservative and he told Kim that a marriage is never going to happen between them because of the tape,” a tipster said shortly after the couple’s split in 2010.
Denise, 46, who recently split from Reggie’s stepdad, Lamar Griffin, is very outspoken about the women her son dates, pals say. A soon-to-be two-time divorcée with Googleable nether regions just doesn’t fit the bill.
“Momma Bush wants her son to settle down with a wholesome, religious woman who’s out of the spotlight,” according to one loose-lipped informant.
“Denise loathes Kim more than you can imagine. She told Reggie not to take her back and added, ‘She’s not good for you!’… To her, Kim is not the right girl for Reggie. She thinks Kim is a two-time loser and nothing more than damaged goods.”
If Reggie’s meddling mom has her say, the world’s most recognizable reality vixen won’t be taking a third trip down the aisle with the gridiron star.
“Denise told a pal, ‘It will be over my dead body if Kim and Reggie ever marry!’ Reggie is a momma’s boy. He knows how his mother feels and doesn’t want to disappoint her,” the tabloid tattle says.
“Unless he can change his mother’s feelings. Kim has little change of getting back with him.”
Well, there’s always Kanye West!
