The Word: Tale of the fighting ovaries

Khloe, left, and Kim Kardashian

Now that the Reality TV?Wedding of the Century™ is over, what kind of drama will the Kardashians think up next? No, not trying to see who can do the most community service, or fighting over who can leave the smallest carbon footprint — that would be crazy! Instead, it looks like sisters Kim and Khloe Kardashian are involved in a “fertility battle.” Because, really, why wouldn’t their ovaries be dueling?

Yes, a “pal” tells Us Weekly: “Khloe is having major problems getting pregnant.” A “show insider” echoes this by saying, “If Kim were to get pregnant first, that would cause tension, because it would highlight Khloe’s struggle.” Yet another friend says, “There is some friction now because Khloe knows [Kim’s pregnancy] is the next step, and she feels terrible she can’t get pregnant herself. The competition has really got her depressed.”

Yeah, I’d be depressed if all of my “pals” and “friends” called up tabloids to squeal on my “fertility” issues, too. But really, I hope they both have happy, beautiful babies. And then they create a line of Dash diapers, which, of course, will come bedazzled.

Hudson’s sell-out dad

Bill Hudson, Goldie Hawn’s ex-husband and Kate Hudson’s estranged father, has some stories in his new book, “2 Versions: The Other Side of Fame and Family” — and chances are Kate won’t be too thrilled about them. “She has done stuff which is just awful,” Bill writes, according to Radar Online. “She is a spoiled brat in my eyes.” He claims Kate hasn’t been in touch with her grandmother, who is battling  Alzheimer’s. “Kate doesn’t have to give her a dime. All I want is for her to call and say, ‘hi grandma,’ before it’s too late,” he writes. In her defense, maybe Kate did call and grandma just forgot.
