First Madonna and now Kate Hudson? Two completely different women that have one thing in common: blond hair. Other than that, they couldn’t be any more different.
PageSix is reporting that NY Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is dating actress Kate Hudson. The Los Angeles-born actress, and daughter of Goldie Hawn, met A-Rod at the reopening of the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach last November. She was photographed at Friday’s game, but the real action came after the game at Mustang Grill in New York City. Sources say a bartender at the restaurant “was asking patrons not to go in the back room around 1 a.m. because A-Rod and Kate Hudson were back there making out.” A Mustang Grill staffer confirmed to Page Six the two were there celebrating the Yanks’ win saying, “Yes, they were here together” but didn’t witness any frisky business. The pair was spotted over the weekend outside 15 Central Park West, where A-Rod rents an apartment.
Hudson, 30, was previously married to the Black Crows front-man Chris Robinson for six years and has a son, Ryder Robinson. Rodriguez, 33, and his wife, Cynthia, split in 2008 after “an affair of the heart” with Madonna, but Madge dumped A-Rod for a younger, Latino toyboy Jesus Luz.
Hudson is a, earthy, bohemian, free spirit who lives in Malibu and is the essence of California cool. She couldn’t be any more different from Madonna who focuses on working out and expanding her career. But A-Rod certainly likes blonds considering that his ex-wife, Cynthia, is a blonde as well as stripper Joslyn Morse, who A-Rod had a fling with while still married.
Real Housewives of Orange County: Gretchen Rossi’s Fiancée, Jeff Beitzel, Daughter was on Rock of Love Bus
You can imagine my surprise when a little birdie told me this weekend about this, since I am devoted to both shows and never knew this.
One of the stars of “Rock of Love” Bus on VH-1 was none other than Jennifer Beitzel, daughter of the late Jeff Beitzel, who was Gretchen Rossi’s fiancée during filming of “Real Housewives of Orange County.” Jeff passed away from cancer shortly after filming finished and since then Gretchen’s love life has been making headlines. Now, I find out about the reality connection and think it’s strange that Jeff’s daughter went on “Rock of Love” Bus shortly after her father passed away.
Jennifer broke down over Jeff’s death while filming the show and told Rock of Love star Bret Michaels that she was in emotional distress. Her sister, Jill Beitzel, posted on her MySpace page about the filming: “Jenny was chosen as one of the original girls but our father died the day before they started filming so she came home. They then brought her back onto the show through the contest the girls participated in. It was set up, and my dad knew prior to his death that she was going to be on the show.”
Jenny was eliminated from the show early on due to stress over her Dad’s passing. Considering the rumors that surround Gretchen’s relationship with Jeff, Jenny’s behavior could have been more scandalous on the Rock of Love Bus, something I am sure the family doesn’t need at this point.
