She may be America’s new fitness queen – what with her latest workout video, Fit in Your Jeans By Friday, debuting at No. 1 – but Kim Kardashian wasn’t always so gung-ho about getting into shape.
Interviewed on World Talk Live!, Kim says she was until recently so lax that she had to hide her idleness from beau – and NFL pro – Reggie Bush.
When host Brett Cohen asks, “Does Reggie help you with your workouts?” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star replies:
“He used to write these workouts and leave them by the bed. Then he’d get up and go to training. And I would lie all the time and say I did the workout.
“But one time he called me and I was in bed, and he was like, ‘Oh, babe. How was the workout?’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, it’s good. I’m just here now in the gym. I stepped away to take the call.’
“And he called me back and said, ‘I got off work early and I’m gonna come into the gym and I’ll see the rest of your workout. I’ll hang out with you.’
“I had to get up so fast out of bed and throw on workout clothes and run down there and pretend I just had this crazy workout.”
Kim also puts the kibosh on rumors that she and Reggie are ready to amble down the aisle.
“I don’t know where these rumors come from, but we’re not engaged.
“We’ve been together for two years, so I think people are probably like, ‘When is it gonna happen?’
“But we’re totally happy in a normal relationship.”
