Jennifer Hudson says she’s prouder of her weight loss than her Oscar. She told “Self” magazine that she didn’t realize she was plus-sized until she was on the red carpet for “American Idol”. She said, “an interviewer asked, ‘How does it feel to be plus-sized in Hollywood?’ I looked around, like, Who is she talking to? Oh, me? I’m plus-sized? In the neighborhood I’m from in Chicago, a 16 is normal But in Hollywood, everyone looks exactly the same, so I stood out.” Jennifer didn’t think about losing weight until she was pregnant with her son, because she wanted to set a good example. She ended up losing 80 pounds, and went from a size 16 to a size 6.

He was 47. No word on what Bravo will do with the next season, which is supposed to premiere September 5th.
Dr. Phil will interview Casey Anthony’s parents for the start of his 10th season, September 12th. He said that he “asked them some very tough questions” and “nothing is off limits during this interview.”
