When Reggie Bush lines up across from linebacker Brian Urlacher on Sundays, he has no fear.
But place the NFL star next to a hormone-laden Kourtney Kardashian, days after she gave birth, and the running back cowers in trepidation.
Such was the case last week, according to sources that claim Bush was set to finally propose to Kim Kardashian - until an irate Kourtney stepped in and threw a fit over the possibility that this engagement news would overshadow her status as a new mother.
"Kourtney screamed at Reggie, 'You can't do this to me!'" a family friend told The National Enquirer. "Kourtney is extremely hormonal right now, and her emotions got the best of her. Reggie was stunned and caught completely off-guard."
The anonymous, clearly legitimate source added that Bush was so frightened by this display that he's shelved plans for a proposal until early 2010.
Flipping for Publicity, Touchdowns: Kourtney Kardashian and Reggie Bush.
There have been rumors for months that Kim is jealous of Kourtney's motherhood.
This friend says the hostility runs both ways.
"There's always been underlying tension because Kourtney feels like she's been playing second fiddle to Kim for so long. She was hoping the last days of her pregnancy and the first few weeks with her newborn would be all about her."
Kourtney hoping for things to be all about her? That's the only part of this story we actually believe.
