The Hollywood Gossip staff is proud to bring back Tale of the Tape, in which we break down prospective matchups within the celebrity gossip world.

This edition of TOTT takes on special meaning with the beginning of the World Series in Yankee Stadium tonight. One of our participants will be there.

The other? She’ll just be updating her blog and begging for attention. But she is also back together with her NFL star boyfriend as of earlier this year!

Kate Hudson. Kim Kardashian. Two hot stars. Dating star athletes. Who’ll prevail when they duke it out in a grueling, 10-round battle? We’ll find out.
