As Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong canoodle their way through Cannes and Monaco, Hudson’s ex, Owen Wilson, is left to drown his sorrows in the company of Hudson lookalikes, according to reports from OK! magazine.

Wilson, who has been in Philadelphia working on the film “Marley & Me,” is said to have been spotted getting cozy with a blonde lady friend at a local Rick’s Cabaret on May 15, then at club G on May 16. A clubgoer told OK! that the actor “looked pretty upset” and was “drinking and sulking.”

A friend of the former couple also told the magazine that they didn’t expect Hudson to be the one to break things off with Wilson. “We all thought it would be Owen breaking Kate’s heart, but it turned out to be the other way around,” the source said. “It’s sad because deep down, they love each other.”

Naomi Campbell to face flight-fracas consequences
Supermodel Naomi Campbell is reportedly set to return to London's Heathrow police station by the end of May to hear whether she’ll be charged for her British Airways brouhaha, where she allegedly assaulted a police officer.

Campbell was arrested for the April 3 incident, and a spokesperson for London's Metropolitan Police confirmed to Women’s Wear Daily, "(Campbell) will come back to the station in late May, there's no specific date." He added that while there, Campbell could also “be bailed (again), released with no further charges, cautioned, or issued with a fixed penalty."

Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings Campbell’s tempestuous temper is no secret, but some close to the model say she’s “really just misunderstood. She’s such a sweet woman.” Campbell’s rep didn’t confirm which airline Campbell would use for her travel to England.

Christian Bale talks about Heath Ledger
With the release of “The Dark Knight” just around the corner, Christian Bale, the Dark Knight himself, is opening up about working with the late Heath Ledger on the film.

“He was incredibly intense in his performance but incredibly mellow and laid-back,” Bale told Details magazine. “Certainly there was this great anarchistic streak to it — just getting dirtier than anybody’s envisioned the Joker before. … Naturally it was something I wanted to share with him — and expected to do so. And I can’t do anything else but hope that it will be an absolutely appropriate celebration of his work.”

Changing gears a bit, Bale, who lost 60 pounds for his role in “The Machinist,” told Details that donning the batsuit was a source of great consternation. “I was standing on the back lot where they were creating the suit, and I had a few minutes to myself, staring up close in the mirror, just thinking, ‘This isn't going to work. I'm claustrophobic, I can't breathe, I'm getting a headache already, and this is all going to go very badly.’”

Wesley Snipes follows Martha Stewart’s lead
Convicted tax cheat Wesley Snipes spent one of his last weekends of freedom frolicking in the celebrity playground that is the Hamptons. “He had no concerns, he was laughing and telling jokes and was loving life. Everyone said 'hi' and no one brought up the fact that he faces up to three years in the slammer,” the New York Post reported.

Some were surprised by Snipes’ easygoing attitude, but the routine sounds familiar to me. Martha Stewart, another celebrity who knows the meaning of hard time, also hit the Hamptons prior to reporting to prison.

In the weeks leading up to her stay at Alderson, Stewart was spotted shopping in the East Hampton Ralph Lauren store, and was even expected to attend P. Diddy’s annual white party. Perhaps Stewart has shared some coping tips with Snipes? Hopefully he gave her no accounting advice in return. Snipes is due to report to prison June 3.
