Jennifer Hudson Threatened to BEAT Tweeter who said J-Hud had Liposuction & a Gay Fiance

Jenny Hudson has always been a pretty much open book with her fans and followers, so when she was on a Q/A binge chatting with her followers today, one follower got under her skin with a certain question.

The follower asked, “Did you get surgery to assist in your weight loss? Or is it all weight watchers?”

Jenny’s answer: Pls don’t ask me no more dumb ass questions . If u try ww u would know u don’t need any assistance . U people r so brain wash.

And after more insults/criticisms from the follower, Jen threatened to go Southside Chicago on that ass (read from bottom up)

Kellie Pickler Still Looking for Good Home for Rescued Pit Bull, Chunk

“Chunk was in a not so good situation, and so we just took him in until we find him a good home, ” Pickler tells Taste of Country. “It’s not a permanent thing, but he is living with us right now. We’ve kind of adopted him into the family until further notice, but it’s definitely not permanent.”

Pickler has made rescuing animals somewhat of a regular thing. “We take in animals all the time, but we can’t keep them all, ” Pickler says. “We take them out of the bad situation that they’re in and take care of them until we can find them a good place.”

Live at So You Think You Can Dance: And America’s Favorite Dancer Is…

We also got a chance to talk with Melanie who was simply glowing and said she wasn’t expecting to win!

“I was ready to take second very graciously, ” she said. “In my head I really thought Sasha was going to win because she has improved so much over the competition and showed so many sides of herself. and she’s such and inspirations to me. Getting to dance with her was such an honor that i was ready. I think all of us had a really even chance so being up and being named one of the final two I was like, ‘Wait is this really happening?’ and when she called my name i just started crying.”

As far as her future plans, with her new found fame and small fortune, Melanie is keeping it simple…at least for now!

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie: Will It Hit, Miss—or What?

“Maybe if this would have hit after the first season when Glee had just began, and people were really, really excited, ” Exhibitor Relations box-office analyst Jeff Bock said.

But opening when it’s opening, and against stiff competition, too, from Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the new drama The Help, forecasters just aren’t expecting much.

“Everybody will be surprised if it does more than $12 million, ” said Bock, who’s actually counting on a $8-$9 million Friday-Sunday Glee gross. “It’ll barely make the top five.”

Backstage With Nigel & Mary At The ‘SYTYCD’ Finale

But backstage after the finale, Nigel didn’t seem too smug. He freely admitted that Wednesday’s underwhelming episode had been a letdown for “SYTYCD” fans, and that he’d been wrong to come down so hard on the boys. (He apologized to Marko and Tadd on Thursday’s show, though he swore it was not his little “morons” on Twitter who’d convinced him to do so.) Nigel just had plenty of praise for all the dancers when I spoke to him–and he even revealed that he’s already planning to bring some of them back as allstars in Season 9.
