Actress Kate Hudson and her mother Goldie Hawn are about to be exposed by someone who was once very close to them.
According to RadarOnline, Bill Hudson, the estranged father of Kate and ex-husband of Hawn, has penned a scathing tell-all entitled “2 Versions: The Other Side of Fame and Family,” which he plans on releasing later this fall.
In addition to dishing on Kate and Goldie, the book, which you can pre-order through Amazon or Barnes & Noble, documents Bill’s ongoing issues with his “movie star” kids and explains “how parents can often become alienated from their children when they don’t have primary custody.”
Bill Hudson – most known for staring in the 70’s musical group, The Hudson Brothers – and Hawn married in 1976 and had Kate and her brother actor Oliver Hudson together, before getting divorced 18 months after Kate’s birth in 1979.
Following the divorce, Goldie married Kurt Russell, who then raised Kate and Oliver.
Though the book’s website claims Hudson desires a “healthy adult relationship” with his estranged children, he certainly isn’t going about it the right way by releasing tell-alls or verbally bashing his kids.
“I love Kate, but I think she has been contrived and destructive with me and with her other brothers and sisters. She has done stuff which is just awful,” Bill, 61, told Radar in a recent interview. “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.”
“I have called Kate and texted her dozens of times begging her to help her grandmother, but she hasn’t responded to me,” Bill continued. “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 Hudson’s 2 Versions: The Other Side of Fame and Family is scheduled to hit shelves on November 1, 2011.
