Jennifer Hudson Joins The "Women Paying For Engagement Rings" Discussion On "The View" + SPEAK ON IT!
While making her promo rounds today in NYC (shown above leaving "GMA") for her upcoming movie The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister & Peete, Jennifer Hudson chimed in on the new report that more women are putting money on their own engagement rings. Decide if you're feeling the new trend inside...
A new report is out about the trend of women splitting the cost of engagement rings with their fiances. NY Mag reports:
According to a survey on the Knot’s Facebook page, an increasing number of heterosexual couples are splitting the cost of an engagement ring. Female respondents reported putting money down on their own ring to help out a less financially stable partner, paying for a ring with a joint account, or, in a few cases, agreeing to contribute in exchange for a larger rock.
Since Jennifer Hudson and her fat rock were all over the promo scene today, she got in on the convo. Well, to the extent of answering a question about who paid for her ring.
After hitting the morning talk show circuit, Jenny headed over to "The View" for a chit chat.
At the 1:20 mark below, Babs gets Jennifer to chime in on their earlier discussion and asks (this gag worthy question) if David Otunga paid for that engagement ring. Sigh. Jenny played along and showed her ring saying "Uh huh" (confirming he did pay for it).
By the way, J-Hud revealed she's currently recording her third album.
So, should women pitch in on the engagement ring, especially if they have super specific requirements?
SPEAK ON IT!
