Jennifer Hudson, who is currently in NYC doing promo work for her just released new album Jennifer Hudson, was snapped proudly showing off her new engagement ring (you may recall that J. Hud recently announced her engagement to reality TV personality David Otunga, better known as Punk on the VH1 competitive reality show I Love New York) around town so I thought it would be nice to feature it right here on the blog as well. I can’t help but notice how big the diamond stone is and she does seem pretty happy with it … I’m just curious how much a ring like that costs and who actually paid for it:
Now, I understand that Mr. Otunga is a lawyer in Chicago, IL and I know that lawyers make a lot of money … but how lucrative a lawyer can he be to be able to afford a rock of this magnitude? And if he really is this successful a lawyer, what the hell was he doing on reality TV in the first place? Y’all may recall that Britney Spears was the one who paid for her own engagement ring back when she wed Kevin Federline … mebbe that’s the same thing that’s going on here. And, for the record, I see nothing wrong with it. Jennifer Hudson really deserves to enjoy herself and her money, I think it’d be great if she did end up paying for her own engagement bling. What I’m really curious about is why J. Hud and Punk have never (to my knowledge) been photographed together. It seems odd to me that the couple would choose to never be seen together in public and yet, they are headed to the altar together. The whole scenario seems very strange to me … I’m not sure if I totally buy it all just yet. Doesn’t everything about the relationship between Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga seem really shady to all y’all?
