Kate Hudson's dad is a real gentleman
Bill Hudson is the newest graduate from the Michael Lohan School of Douchey Fatherhood and has written a tell-all book about his children and former wife, Goldie Hawn. The book is called 2 Versions: The Other Side of Fame and Family. Although, when you click on the Amazon link from Hudson's website (which looks like it was brand-new in 1998), you're taken to a page for a book called So You Are A Star. I'm not entirely sure what's going on there, but the books look equally cheap and bitter, so whatevs.
Radaronline has this:
"Goldie Hawn and daughter Kate Hudson are about to be exposed by someone who was once very close to them. Goldie's ex-husband and father of Kate, Bill Hudson, has written a tell-all that will be released this fall and RadarOnline.com has obtained the cover of the book titled 2 Versions: The Other Side of Fame and Family. Bill, 61, married Goldie in 1976 and the couple had Kate and brother Oliver Hudson together before divorcing in 1980, and the children were ultimately raised by Goldie's life partner, Kurt Russell, who she met shortly after her relationship with Bill ended. Reports surfaced earlier this year that Bill was shopping his tell-all book After seeing his promising venture into stealing copper wire fail, it was his only option for making money, and RadarOnline.com has learned pre-orders are already being taken online and it will hit stands on November 1, 2011. "Life in the spotlight is not without its consequences, and the Hudson family was no exception," the book's website touts. "While enjoying success as a part of the 1970s musical group The Hudson Brothers, Bill Hudson fell in love and married actress Goldie Hawn. "After their divorce, Bill found himself in the middle of the controversial issue of parental alienation. His rights as a father to see his children were often played out in the media because Oliver and Kate became actors themselves." Devastating secrets and salacious details of both Goldie and Kate's lives are expected to be revealed. As RadarOnline.com was first to report, Bill accused Kate of not visiting or calling her dying grandma, who is battling Alzheimer's disease. "Kate doesn't have to talk to me and she doesn't have to give her a dime of her millions. All I want is for her to call and say, 'Hi grandma', before it's too late," Bill said. "I love Kate, but... She has done stuff which is just awful. She is a spoiled brat in my eyes and at the end of the day, she should meet her little sister. I should meet my grandchild and she should help her grandmother." Along with Goldie, Bill also had a marriage to Laverne & Shirley star Cindy Williams, and promises to dish on stories about her as well. Because why stick to making money off one really old relationship, when you can exploit two? That would be like ignoring the benefits of double-coupon day. "Now Bill is ready to share his fascinating Hollywood stories of life as a teen idol and husband to two famous women, Goldie Hawn and Cindy Williams," the book's site says. "His book also talks about how parents can often become alienated from their children when they don't have primary custody. Or when they're vindictive losers. You know. Either one. Hopefully, at some point, this family will be able to have a healthy adult relationship before it's too late."
