Butterscotch Sundae, Kate on Top?
Was Owen Wilson the reason for Kate Hudson’s split from husband Chris Robinson? US Weekly seems to think so. Its cover story says that Kate and the Butterscotch Stallion got cozy during the filming of “Me, You and Dupree” and that Hudson has spent several nights at Wilson’s Santa Monica house in recent weeks. Kate does seem to like them scruffy, but it still seems like an odd match. Hudson’s rep had no comment, while a lawyer for Wilson says that any rumors suggesting Owen is the reason for the split are “absolutely false.”
On the subject of denials, US Weekly is taking great pains to prove that it often gets the story right, despite protests from publicists and the like. Last week’s issue featured an announcement of Jennifer and Vince’s engagement, a claim Aniston’s flak quickly denied. As a rebuttal, the magazine points to their cover stories on the splits of Nick and Jessica, Britney and Justin and Billy Bob and Angelina, as well as stories on Sandra Bullock’s wedding and Brad and Angelina’s budding romance. Inexplicably, they didn’t mention cover stories like the one on Britney moving out and dumping K-Fed, Britney faking her wedding to K-Fed, Nick Lachey dating Kristen Cavallari, Angelina canceling her wedding to Brad and Brad wanting Jennifer back.
