SMH: Publishers Would Rather Try To Make Money From The Hudson Family Murders Than J.Hud’s Slimmy Trimmy-Dom

- By Bossip Staff

Jennifer Hudson with her family

Maybe it’s because she wants a fortune to tell her story, but Jennifer Hudson can’t seem to get publishers to buy the “Feeling Good Now That I’m Not A Big Girl” book she’s been shopping since before she had dropped all the weight.

J. Hud and her ghostwriter literary agent have been trying to get a mil for her tale of conquering obesity for the past four years. And no one is buying it.

But while Hudson’s weight struggle and self-help tips are marketable, sources say because of her $1 million-plus demand for the deal, publishers are holding out for the full story about her coping with the horrific slaying of her family.

Hudson’s mother, Darnell Donnerson, her older brother, Jason, and her 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, were killed in October 2008, allegedly by her brother-in-law, William Balfour, who was indicted for murder.

Hudson has rarely commented on the tragedy. During a February appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s show, she struggled to speak about it and started crying as she said, “My mother right now would say to me, ‘Why are you always crying? Stop crying. You’ve got to keep going.’ ”

Sources say the 29-year-old “Dreamgirls” star met with a prominent newsmagazine journalist last December to discuss penning a memoir about the tragedy. But she backed out after the meeting, telling our source, “It’s just too soon.”

Another publishing insider told us: “It was disappointing. Her book about her diet is really appealing and wonderful. But if you spend a lot of money on the book deal, you want it to sell. With no talk of her family, we didn’t think it was worth it.”

Do you think Jennifer should write about her family’s tragedy? Which would you rather read or find more inspirational: her weight-loss tale or her survival story?

    Nobody wants to write about the tragic loss of their own family and them dealing with it but sadly that’s the type of stuff ppl want to read. We’ve all heard the weight loss stories of many ppl before on almost every talk show ever. they all sound about the same. but i love j.hud. I’ll support whatever she does.

    • Well Damn!

      I concur

  • Tesha

    IF she doesn’t want to talk about her family tragedy in a book then she shouldn’t. I guess since the weight loss books have been done a million times before it’s not that appealing to the publishers , oh well

  • Bossip's Resident Fab Homosexual

    I don’t want to read anything about this big brownbear in a lacefornt.

    • Well Damn!

      But guess what their is nothing ever printed about you have fun in h3ll Loser!

    • Bossip's Resident Fab Homosexual

      ^^Stupid bytch can’t even spell.

      @Well D@mn!: And there’s nothing ever printed about this big masculine looking ape either because nobody wants to hear about how she lost weight, all they wanna hear about is HOW HER FAMILY GOT MURKED’D! Sorry, but I’ll pazz if that’s what it takes to get a book deal.

      Geez, I should have known that as soon as I attacked a fat, masculine looking black woman with fake hair, all her fellow members of the “Bitter Black Bytch Society of North America” would come storming angrily in here, weave streaming in the wind, smelling like fried chicken and looking for blood!

    How can she write a whole book about how she lost weight, when its obvious that she had some sort of weight loss surgery. Because if she did lose all that weight naturally she would have some muscle definition to her body, which she doesn’t. Personally I wouldn’t want to read about either subject. Why is she even writing a book.

    • Tesha

      you’re wrong boo boo. If she’s gonna have surgery wouldn’t she get rid of all the stretch marks and everything to? yeah exactly. I bet you you’re big as a house or ugly as sin and are just hating

    • kalifa

      @Tesha….she probably had the lap-ban surgery….that would not get rid of her stretch marks….

      i think thats what honeybee meant🙂

    She did not have any type of surgery. It’s black and fat women like you that are too lazy to lose weight cause y’all too busy hating on those who do. Get a life.

    • IT'S A CARIBBEAN THANG...

      Glad you believe everything these liars say they do…even when Michael jackson said he had only 2 surgeries…celebrities mislead the public…NOT ME THO

  • yuuup

    Hmm maybe she can talk abt her nephews mom not giving a fck about her son bein killed…she was on myspace 10 min later posting pics of her & the guy they THINK did it!

  • diane

    No one wants to read a book of lies, she knows damn well she got the lap band and because her glut azz wasn’t hungry she followed points plus, no reason what so ever she has no muscle tone. And that makes it even more discerning that have the work was done with the lap band and all that harpo ho# had to do was hit some weights, her musics wack she’s extremely superficial and she’s an awful liar

  • Jazzy

    Ooooooo… you guys have gone and done it now. J HUD is pissed on Twitter!!!! I smell a lawsuit comin’ on you guys! She’s gonna get her millions now. BWAHAHAHA!!!!

  • DH1

    Jennifer is right. It is too soon to try to discuss something so painful, and the publishers are awful for trying to push her into talking about it. I have also dealt with major loss, and it still hurts more than a decade later.

    Jennifer- You already know that God has you in his care. God loves you and everyone on this forum. Be blessed🙂

  • diane

    Have u ever thought what if she lost some the weight from mourning the loss of her family? Btw people can lose as much as they can work for… I know people that have lost 100 lbs and more just eating right and working out… Leave her alone this is all lies. She would never try to get more money and write a memoir about the murders of her loved one. This is GOSSIP! Have some common sense, as one of her close friends I know this is BULLSHIT!!! Im not going to argue back because I do have a LIFE thank you!

    Uh oh. Jennifer Hudson just cursed y’all out on Twitter. She doesn’t like this post AT ALL!

  • Lola

    I agree.She sounds really hurt and upset by this. An apology definitely needed!

  • Lisa

    I really feel sorry for some of you folks, you come on these blogs and create such bad karma for yourselves and your kids or future kids. You may think that it is all fun and games, but once you put it out into the universe, it becomes a part of you and some of you are just simply hateful and disgusting and it will come back to you, and when it does please don’t ask why just look back on some of the things that you have said or written and you will know why. SNDH. Woww!! Some of you will live in some serious misery.

  • yuuup

    Her “weight loss” isn’t a sppecial one of a kind story…many get lap band.

  • Tesha

    so what ? so what ur an idiot that’s what lol

  • Me (I'm PRO-MARRIAGE & FAMILY.)

    One can lose 8 lbs per month, in a healthy way. Over a 10 month period, that would equal 80 lbs–a dramatic loss. If you’re changing your eating habits and exercising, you may be able to lose more than that. I think Jennifer has worked hard on WW program, and it paid off. With determination and adherence to the program, people can have dramatic weight losses. And, while a one-year weight loss may look like it happened overnight, it really didn’t.
