It all started when Oliver, who had not spoken to his father in over a decade, posted an photo on Father’s Day with the caption, “Happy abandonment day.” Kate and Oliver were raised by their mom Goldie Hawn and father figure Kurt Russell.
Oliver appeared on Watch What Happens Live! on Tuesday (November 17) and revealed that he is now speaking to his dad! He was asked if he regretted posting the caption and this was his reply: “No, and I’ll tell you why. I was just talking to you guys about this. It actually started a dialogue that I haven’t talked to my father in twelve years. And my sort of dark, crazy sense of humor, I posted this happy abandonment day thing which everyone went crazy about and I was just trying to be funny and at the end of the day it was a good thing. We’re communicating now. had an amazing three day conversation with him and we’re texting and we’re trying to see each other. We might be mending.”
Andy Cohen also said, “Maybe your sister will get in on the action,” to which Oliver replied, “We’ll see.”
