Man, aren’t parental guilt trips the worst? It’s like, yeah, I haven’t called my grandma in forever, but would you want to call someone if all they said to you was “you’re going to hell, sinner”?
But Kate Hudson‘s parental guilt trip sounds a whole lot worse than the conversation I have to have every now and then with my mom, because, see, Kate Hudson’s dad wrote it in the form of a book that’s described as “not a Hollywood tell-all, but instead an emotional outreach.” And so it begins.
“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.”
Ok, I agree that in a solid amount of situations, it’s important to stick with your family, because in a solid amount of situations, they’ve done good by you. And I also agree that Kate Hudson seems like kind of a pill, but you can say that in a letter, you know, or you can write it in your diary or get a Tumblr or something. Ain’t nobody gonna take you seriously if you publish a book telling your daughter to call her grandma. Right?
