BEVERLY HILLS — After catching the public’s attention on “American Idol” and winning an Oscar for “Dreamgirls,” Jennifer Hudson is returning to TV — as QVC’s next celebrity designer.
Professing a lifelong fascination with fashion that started with youthful T-shirt cut-ups and culminated in the wedding dress she designed for her upcoming nuptials to Harvard-educated lawyer-turned-pro wrestler David Otunga, the 30-year-old entertainer is introducing the Jennifer Hudson Collection for QVC in September. Hudson, who shed 80 pounds as a celebrity spokeswoman for Weight Watchers, said she is designing not only for her former size-16 persona but also for her new size-6 body — and all the fans who span that range.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
