As loyal celebrity gossip followers and ardent fans of Kim Kardashian, our staff was shocked by her break-up with Reggie Bush.
It sounds like we weren't alone.
"I loved them as a couple," Kim's close friend, Brittny Gastineau, told People yesterday afternoon. "I thought they were great. I always said that they were the same person. I never met a couple who were so great. They clicked well together."
Gastineau blamed the "hectic" schedule of both stars for the split, but added:
"They love each other so much, they're best friends, but whatever is meant to happen, happens."
Meanwhile, Kourtney Kardashian says her sister is doing okay.
"Kim is great. She is looking at houses. She is going to be living on her own," the star of an upcoming reality show with sister Khloe told In Touch Weekly.
Neither Brittny nor Kourtney offered suggestions about who Kim might date next. We thought she and Chris Brown might make a good pair, but readers don't seem to agree.
With whom would you set Kim Kardashian up with?
