Jennifer Hudson has learned a valuable lesson in building her career: it pays to diversify your talents. Since she exited “American Idol” back in the day she’s known that success didn’t have to come through her singing alone. So we had JHud the actress and after that Jennifer Hudson the Weight Watchers spokesperson and after she lost more than 80 pounds, she added author to the mix. That’s a lot of hyphenates but she seems to make it work. So it comes as no surprise that she’ll be adding yet another title to the mix when she debuts her fashion…
This weekend, The Help star Octavia Spencer, walked the Red Carpet at The Palms Spring Film Festival in a black sequined David Meister gown. She was there to pick up her award as The Breakout Performance of the Year. But during her walk down the Red Carpet she revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that she hadn’t yet secured a dress for The Golden Globes this coming Sunday. It seems that designers aren’t beating down her door. Surprised? Me neither.
“I’m just a short chubby girl,” she announced on the red carpet. “It’s hard for me to find a dress to…
A sister getting a weight loss contract with a major company like Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers or NutriSystem is not unusual–Whoopi has pitched for both Slimfast and LA Weight Loss while the one and only Queen Latifah did a stint as a Jenny Craig Ambassador back in 2009. But the weight loss companies have been taking it to a new level starting with Jennifer Hudson’s amazing 80 lb. drop via Weight Watchers. She has become a walking, talking, singing advertisement for the program and gave it a hip new edge. And the most recent spot with American Idol JHud…
Jennifer Hudson has kept a pretty low profile and that’s understandable. But now she’s back on the scene in a big way. Last night she attended The Whitney Museum Gala in New York City. And then there’s that beautiful portrait of mom and baby in this week’s People. So happy to see Jennifer with a smile on her face.
It looked like most divas (both on the stage and in the audience) would much rather keep it short, sassy and sexy then go for the traditional elegance. Here are some of the sisters who did it their way.
Okay, this is not meant to be snarky but I am really scratching my head over the lineup VH1 has put together for the relaunch of their franchise “VH1 Divas”. Here’s the lineup: Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, Leona Lewis and Jordin Sparks. Apparently you only need one or two albums to qualify—such is the case with Adele, Lewis and Sparks. Yes I know new mom JHud only has one CD too, but I think she’s in a different league (so is Kelly Clarkson). Hudson also has an Oscar, a Golden Globe award and a few Grammys. Even teens…
Our favorite “Dreamgirl” has been wowing audiences in the cities she’s already visited on her tour with Robin Thicke. Tonight, she hits the stage at the Wamu Theater at Madison Square Garden. But if you act fast you may still be able to get tickets to that show as well as those cities that still have seats available this month : Norfolk (4/12), Charlotte (4/17) and Detroit (4/24).
