New Family, New Body & New Attitude - Jennifer Hudson Tells 20/20 About "The Joy That I Have"

​ ​ ​ ​

On Friday, songstress Jennifer Hudson opened up on 20/20 and shared her tears and joys about her career, her son, and tragic death of her family. We have a clip from the intervew when you read on...

Jennifer Hudson, whose sophomore album I Remember Me debuts next week,  opened to ABC reporter Deborah Roberts about a wide range of issues including the murders of her mother, brother and nephew in 2008:

 “God is what I feel certain about. No matter what he’s always there—always. I feel like that is the greatest gift that my mother (gave me)-that no money, no fame, no nothing could give you at all."

She also opened up about the man in her life David Otunga and son David Daniel Otunga Jr., who she calls “munchkabunch:”

“He’s so sweet. He loves to dance, he loves music.  If my Weight Watchers commercial comes on he tells me, ‘Mama, that’s my mama!’”

And despite all of the pain and tragedy, Jennifer has still maintained an attitude of joy and gratitude. During her interview, she said:

“I have the greatest sadness to be sad over, but then look at the joy that I have too.”

Check out her interview below:

 

It's good to see that JHud had been positive throughout the roughest storm of her life. She is definitely a YBF woman.

Way to go Jen and yes Weight

Way to go Jen and yes Weight Watchers does work! However I am curious has anyone wondered if Jen has gotten any professional help for her loss. This was a lot to come back from. I am just wondering. I wish her the best in all of her endeavors and May God continue to bless her family.

I have always admire Jennifer

I have always admire Jennifer from her AI days. She never gives up on her dream. It's sad that her mother, brother and nephew aren't there to share it with her. I love the fact that she is more confident to choose good clothes that fit her new body. I wish her the best in both her music and acting career. Looking forward to hear great music and watch great acting from her.

I personally feel that anyone

I personally feel that anyone who don't think that plans like Weight Watchers and working out don't work really just want to lose weight without putting any work in. I personally know someone who lost over 200 pounds by joining a weight loss program that changed their eating and by working out and drinking water! People are just lazy now days. No one wants to work but they want the results. I've always believed that those surgeries should only be done as a last resort, IF the person is incapable of losing the weight on their own. There are plenty of people who have lost weight the old fashion way like J-Hud is doing.

I'm so happy for J-Hud that the Joy of the Lord is her strength. When achieve whatever it is we are each hoping to go, it is important to give God--Jehovah--the GLORY! when you've come out of the dark, the wilderness, and you know without a doubt, you ain't praisin' no "Universe"--you praise the name above every name: Thank you for victory, Jesus--for the light that is surely coming this morning. Somebody reading this needs to know: your morning is about to dawn. Don't you dare give up!
