First, it was exes LeAnn Rimes and Dean Sheremet who were angling for the engagement spotlight. Next up was Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, the former Newlyweds who announced their pending nuptials within just days of each other. Could the next race to the altar be Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush?
Anyone who watches Keeping Up With The Kardashians (or follows pretty much any celebrity news outlet) is up to speed on all the dramz between Kim and her NFL-playing ex-sweetie. Though it was tough to keep up with their constant on-again/off-again status for a while, it looks like Reggie may have moved on for good - to Latin songstress Mayra Veronica. After just six months of dating, Mayra is sporting a sizable rock on her finger that looks suspiciously like an engagement ring. (In a Bachelor-like move, some are calling it a "friendship" or a promise ring, but either way, Reggie's been gifting her with some major bling!)

"Mayra is telling people her and Reggie are engaged," sportscaster Terez Owens told LimeLife.com. "Reggie's camp has not confirmed the news, but Mayra has been blabbing to everyone who will listen that she and Reggie have plans to wed next summer."

Reggie isn’t quite so effusive, going as far as to Tweet: "Me engaged? C'mon Son!!!!! Even [my dog] Rocky was like, 'C'mon Son!!!!'" But we all know that celebrity denials are often all about behind-the-scenes timing – after all, they could be negotiating a Life & Style cover exclusive!
So the question remains: will Kim apply pressure on new beau Gabriel Aubry to follow suit? After all, Khloe’s already happily married, Kourtney’s betrothed to Scott, and now Reggie appears to be spoken for by a brunette bombshell who's not Kim. Add up that equation, and all signs point to an upcoming engagement showdown! Keeping Up With Kim Kardashian's Dating Spree
