Is Jennifer Hudson‘s life turning into a reality show?

The "American Idol" contestant just got engaged Friday night — on her birthday — to her boyfriend (of less than a year) David Otunga, also a reality TV star. Of sorts.

You may recall David Otunga, or you may not, from his appearance last year as "Punk" in the VH1 reality show "I Love New York 2."

If you watched the show, then you know that the Oscar-winning "Dreamgirls" actress is going to marry a guy who was rejected on the show by a woman named New York who was also rejected — twice — by Flavor Flav on his own reality love show called "Flavor of Love."


Maybe Hudson knows all too well the intricate and secretly scripted play-to-the-camera aspects of reality TV. Maybe that’s why she’s not bothered by New York rejecting her fiance.

Jen’s got a lot going on in her life right now. She’s engaged, has a wedding to plan, has a new album out and her new movie, "The Secret Life of Bees," is due in theaters Oct. 17.
