Kate Hudson Achieves ‘Bucket List Thing’ in ‘Celebrity IOU’ Clip

HGTV Kate Hudson joins Drew and Jonathan Scott on "Celebrity IOU."

Kate Hudson is kicking down walls and taking names. The actress has teamed up with Drew and Jonathan Scott to surprise her future mother-in-law with a renovation on “Celebrity IOU.”

It is demolition day in a clip of the upcoming episode.

“Demo is like a bucket list thing,” the 43-year-old explains in a confessional. “I’ve always wanted to take s*** down. It’s like the best feeling. So satisfying.”

She cannot hide her enthusiasm as she knocks down boards. Hudson exclaims in the clip, while tearing down the awning, “Thank you for all the wonderful shading you gave us, but you’re gone.”

As the clip continues, the “Property Brothers” stars are left to ponder if Hudson’s appearance on their show will be reciprocated.

“This is like the role of a lifetime for Kate,” Jonathan says in the clip.

“If we have her star in this movie, do you think she’ll have me come and star in her next movie?” Drew questions his brother in the clip. Jonathan responds, “No, I don’t.”

Kate Hudson Creates a ‘Low Maintenance Retreat’ for Her Future Mother-in-Law


The “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” actress is transforming the backyard of Melissa Linehan, the mother of Hudson’s fiancé, Danny Fujikawa. In a press release, HGTV referred to the space as “her sanctuary.”

“Melissa is a retired educator of 30 years who raised three boys as a single mom, and she is in need of a safer, more functional backyard to garden and spend time with grandkids after recently recovering from two broken ankles,” HGTV described the episode in a press release.

With the help of the Scott twins, Hudson will give her daughter’s “selfless” grandma a “low maintenance retreat,” according to a press release.

As the press release explained, the space will feature “an outdoor kitchen and fireplace, updated casita that serves as an art space, raised garden beds and bocce ball court.”
