It’s splitsville for Kate and Owen

Forget the engagement buzz. Not only are Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson not getting married, they’re not even an item anymore. After reuniting less than two months ago, the revolving-door relationship is over again, reports People.

“It was a pretty bad breakup,” a friend of Owen’s revealed to the magazine. “Owen said it was a tough one. He definitely doesn’t want to dwell on it. He wants to put it behind him.”

Those concerned the embattled actor could spiral into depression following the split (as he was said to after the couple’s first breakup in 2007) need not worry, according to one spywitness.

“(Owen) was pretty chummy with the ladies,” said an onlooker who spotted the “Darjeeling Limited” star out on the town recently. “He was certainly doing some sweet-talking. He looked happy to be there hanging with them.”

As for Kate, another People source claimed she “feels dumb thinking (the relationship) was so serious.”

Shiloh readies for big sis roleWith two new siblings on the way, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt will soon surrender her role as the youngest member of the Brangelina bunch. According to OK! magazine, her parents are already busy preparing their soon-to-be 2-year-old tot for the big transition.

“It’s increasingly important to Brad and Angelina, as they near the birth of their twins, that Shiloh be OK with being a big sister,” a family insider told the magazine. “They are always wanting to do special things for her so she feels included and bonds with the other kids.”

Luckily for Shiloh, she already has the perfect role model right by her side. “She looks up to Zahara, so everyone is hoping Z will teach her the ropes when it comes to being a good older sister.”

Jerry Springer wants to apologizeThanks to a round of “Dancing With the Stars” and a current hosting gig with “America’s Got Talent,” Jerry Springer’s undergone an image overhaul. He’s no longer solely associated for his daytime tabloid television antics, but, then again, he’s not ready to give them up, either.

When asked he if he was proud of his trash TV roots, Jerry told Parade magazine, “I want to apologize for it.” He added, “Sometimes I think I should have a show just called, ‘I’m Sorry.’”

Well, maybe it should be called, “I’m Sort of Sorry.” See, Jerry has no plans to turn his back on “The Jerry Springer Show.” “My show could be a lot more successful if it were publicly acceptable. Believe me; you make a lot more money if you’re Oprah or Ellen. But I really get stirred up when people call other people trash and I kind of almost enjoy it in a sick way. Obviously, I’m not the only one.”

Dish on the flyFollowing the public announcement that he and Scarlett Johansson are set to tie the knot, Ryan Reynolds shared the happy news with his pals via text messages. According to ContactMusic, when one pal, his “Definitely, Maybe” co-star Elizabeth Banks, asked if the engagement was for real, Ryan simply reached for his cell and wrote back, “Yes, we’re really engaged!’” … Victoria Beckham doesn’t wear her signature mile-high heels to make her look long and lean. No, Posh puts on the pumps so she can think clearly. In an interview with U.K. talk show GMTV, Victoria confessed, “I just can’t concentrate in flats!” Her dependence on towering tootsies even prevents her from working out. “I’d love to go to the gym, but I can’t get my head around the footwear.”
