There are rumors that Yankees girlfriends Kate Hudson and Minka Kelly do not get along. The New York Post reports “visible coldness” between Minka Kelly and Kate Hudson.
Minka Kelly, who has been dating Derek Jeter since 2008, keeps a relatively low-profile, cheering for him in his private seats at Yankee Stadium. Kate Hudson, on the other hand, is more high-profile as seen with the photo of her smooching Alex Rodriguez. Kate Hudson sits in the family section of Yankee Stadium with the Yankee wives who have given her their stamp of approval.
Neither Minka Kelly nor Kate Hudson have commented on the story, but some media sources seems eager to pounce on any potential conflict. Kevin Spence told the Post that “It would be the best reality show ever if they would allow a camera to follow them around. I think tensions and jealousy will grow in time.” Minka Kelly and Kate Hudson certainly have the potential for conflict as they are both high-profile figures who may not be used to being upstaged. There is also the Derek Jeter/A-Rod rivalry.
Kate Hudson is known for her roles in films such as How to Lose a 10 in Ten Days, Fool’s Gold, Raising Helen, and Bride Wars. Perhaps some would like to see a reenactment of Bride Wars at Yankee Stadium. Minka Kelly has appeared in television shows such as What I Like About You, CW’s Body Politic, and currently stars in Friday Night Lights.
If there really is a rivalry, I’m not surprised that neither would comment on it. In Mean Girls, Lindsay Lohan explains that “in girl world the fighting had to be sneaky.” Besides, publicly bad-mouthing the other could comes across as spiteful. Rosalind Wiseman’s book Queen Bees and Wanna Bees suggests that men tend to be more direct than women about expressing anger towards each other. With high school female cliques, the fighting is usually done indirectly.
Of course, the Minka Kelly vs. Kate Hudson rivalry could really be much ado about nothing. Even those who are not best friends can still find ways to coexist without outward animosity. Rumored movie and television feuds have been around for years. Many of these cases tend to be exaggerated. There was the rumored feud between Julie Andrews and Audrey Hepburn over the casting in My Fair Lady, but both actresses denied any animosity. There was some truth to the Penny Marshall vs. Cindy Williams feud, though probably not as extreme as rumors suggested. There was also the rumored feud between Golden Girls Betty White and Bea Arthur, which suggested that they never became friends outside the show. Yet neither spoke ill of the other.
Hopefully Minka Kelly and Kate Hudson will be able to co-exist inside Yankee Stadium.
