Tiffany Pollard slams Jennifer Hudson and fiance David Otunga
By John Bracchitta, 10/10/2008
Tiffany Pollard is showing off her "New York" attitude.
The I Love New Yorkstar has given a verbal lashing to former second-season suitor David Otunga and third-season American Idol finalist Jennifer Hudson, hisnew wife-to-be.
"He's really loving being Mr. Jennifer Hudson. I think he's loving the lavish things she brings to his life, he's seeing the world due to Jennifer's success," Pollard toldIn TouchWeekly in a Wednesday report. "[But] can you love this person if they lose all of this tomorrow? [Hudson] needs to find out. I just hope people are marrying each other for the right reasons."
Pollard went on to take an apparent not-so-subtle shot at Hudson's weight when speaking of her experiences with Otunga, a Harvard Law School graduate that Pollard called "Punk" while he competed on I Love New York's second season in 2007.
"When we were in Miami together, he didn't even try anything [on me]!" she told In Touch. "Maybe I wasn't his type, maybe I wasn't big enough for him."
Pollard was also openly skeptical about the couple's future.
"It's a mixed match, it won't work," she told In Touch. "He'll be in her shadow like Al Reynolds was to Star Jones, like Stedman Graham is to Oprah."
After making it to the show's penultimate episode, Otunga finished as I Love New York 2's second runner-up. During his elimination, Pollard cited a lack of passion in their relationship as one of her reasons for sending Otunga home.
Soon after his ouster from the show, Otunga met Hudson, who finished seventh in the third season of American Idol and won the best supporting actress Oscar award for the performance in Dreamgirls in 2007.
Otunga and Hudson, who have been dating for less than a year, both are natives of Chicago. Otunga proposed to Hudson in September. Prior to Otunga, Hudson had dated childhood acquaintance James Payton for eight years and been the subject of unconfirmed engagement rumors.
Earlier this week, Hudson's self-titled debut album debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 album sales chart, selling 217,000 units during its initial week of release.
