Preview: Jennifer Hudson’s Emotional Interview On ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’

Published: Monday 27th Aug 2012 by Sam

After a slow start, Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network is becoming a weekly must-watch – thanks largely to the riveting ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’.

Having already scored major interviews with the likes of Rihanna and Bobbi Kristina (in the wake of Whitney Houston’s passing), the show continues its winning streak with a tell-all sit-down with singer/actress Jennifer Hudson.

Set to air on September 9th, the interview sees the Oscar and Grammy winner reflect on her meteoric rise, as well as the much-publicized tragedy which saw her mother, brother, and nephew gunned to death in 2008.

Stock up on that Kleenex, this one is sure-fire tear-jerker.

Watch the preview below…

We’ll be watching. Will you?

    I’m not a fan of her but this girl has suffered so much in her personal life, it is so sad, i wish the best to her.

    • X,Y, AND ZIDIOT August 28, 2012

      You didn’t have to preface with “I’m not a fan of her…” As if that makes you comment SO much more genuine. You don’t have to be a fan of someone to feel sorry for the hardships they go through in life.

    Oprah is such an insensitive vulture. I kmow this is her job but whatever happened to Jennifers family happened 4 years ago and didn’t Oprah already interview Jennifer about this? Oprah just desperate for the ratings.

    • MJ Lover August 28, 2012

      yess!!! i absolutley agree!!

  3. Benron (King Of The Navy) August 27, 2012

    Good for Oprah. Interviewing sucsessful and talented black women justlike herself, I might watch this!

    • mob: operation kill the b!+@# August 28, 2012

      Wow are you f*cking kidding? Crack smoking prostitute Oprah is doing nothing but exploiting youNG black people for ratings! The more they cry the higher her ratings. She doesn’t give a damn what type of damage she causes after her show. Look at the way ppl ATTACKED Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi-Kristina after her show? How about the way folks are now ATTACKING your girl Rihanna (e.g. busted face cat woman Joan Rivers)? Do you think Oprah Windfrey gives a damn about the pain she caused them? HELL NO!!

      • MJ Lover August 28, 2012

        yes preach!!!

      • mob: operation kill the b!+@# August 28, 2012


        I don’t give a damn about this old ass interview so why you elected to post something other than Rihanna discussing her actions that night is beyond me?

  4. Rihanna Navy August 27, 2012

    LOL by the time Oprah is done interviewing these celebs, she’s gonna need a mop to mop the floor UP!

  5. Spot Love August 27, 2012

    why does jennifer always hav swagg on a million, yet she cant get her sister looking fly for an oprah interview? i mean she really wore shorts and a t-shirt. SMH

    • Rihanna Navy August 27, 2012

      lmao looking all basic and s***.

    • I am Your Leader August 27, 2012

      THANK YOU!!! jeezus and she fat as f*** LIKE get yo f***** sister on jenny craig DAMN! I think she gained some weight cause that b**** is big as a f***** bus! SHIIIIT

      • Mely B August 28, 2012

        Always nice to read such kind & supportive comments (*heavy sarcasm). That “big as a f***** bus b****” lost her child, mother & brother so try to have a little compassion.

  7. Benron (King Of The Navy) August 27, 2012

    Jennifer is the most talented black female singer currently out. She should perform after her interview. First Rihanna, then Gabby Douglas, now Jennifer Hudson? These are balck women who made something of themselves instead of hating in a comment section, so it will probably attract a lot of viewers. Oprah might get this channel back and running again!

    Hold ur head up JHud.

    • Benron (King Of The Navy) August 27, 2012

      I still feel bad for her, Poor Jennifer!

  11. Shedding Light: No Stars EVER August 27, 2012

    Nice portrait shot of JHud and Oprah.

  12. MusicB August 27, 2012

    Oprah making EVERYBODY cry. No wonder Lauryn rejected. Lauryn said “No ma’am, you all are not about to see me break down over my taxes”.

  13. Hi5-slap on some diapers August 27, 2012

    JHud need to werk those eyes like Oprah. And forget mop floor, Oprah need to have a bucket ready since I think she on to something with these back to back tear festival interviews :). This strategy might work for this ratings game. Look at Oprah face, she know it and she look hungry for big ratings. Mitt the Twit might be next. Imagine him cry.

  14. joker August 27, 2012

    you wanna cry? watch oprah. there’s nothing else there anymore. 😀

    pathetic tv.

  15. Yesididbitch August 27, 2012

    Jennifer sister has a beautiful face, bu WTF is she wearing? Did they forget to tell her Oprah was coming, and did they forget to tell her that J-HUD endorses Weight Watchers??

  16. Yesididbitch August 27, 2012

    If Oprah can get a Chris Brown interview i think everything will be ok…talk about rating soaring

    • mob: operation kill the b!+@# August 28, 2012

      That b*tch is not going to get Chris Brown! So she can what, continue on her campaign of hatred against him? The b*tch did 9 shows and one crossover event with Tara ‘s***’ Banks using Chris Brown to disgust abuse? Rihanna hit 1st and he hit back now a fight between two young blacks in a teen relationship is labled abuse?

      However, this same worthless c*** interviewed James Taylor who beat wife Carly Simon yet never mentioned it. She interviewed Mickey Rourke who beat wife Carrie Otis and never mentioned it. She interviewed Sean Penn who beat wives Madonna and Robin and never mentioned it. She interviewed Jeff Goldblum who beat wife Gina Davis and never mentioned it. No if Chris Brown helps this witch get ratings OFF OF HIS BACK, I WILL FOREVER be against him!

    It is horrible what happened to J-Hud’s family. Keep strong and keep being successful; it’s what her family would’ve wanted.

    • Lax August 28, 2012

      @MC SO RIGHT ON.

  18. itsallright August 27, 2012

    Lol @ Oprah.

  19. spokentruth August 27, 2012

    Ophra already did a interview with jenifer about her family tragely and doing another interview is not cool. Just like with the Rihanna interview, that scene with Chris & Rihanna happen over 3 years ago move the f ***k on. Don”t care to watch this interview. Get me Alicia Keys/Switzz /Jay-z/Beyonce Mairah/Nick Cannon Monica/Shannon Brown & maybe Mary J. Bliedge/Kenu

    • mob: operation kill the b!+@# August 28, 2012

      But fat a$$ crack smoking Oprah Windfrrey cannot and will not exploit ADULTS. She goes after the young Blacks. She knows she can get them to cry and fall apart easily. The more tears they shed the more her ratings increase.

      • Lax August 28, 2012

        @MOB,,,,and yo can kiss my ass in advance, and this
        sure in the HELL is not pertaining to the Topic,,,but it
        don’t have to be it’s about life in Generally….and applys to all of us….One is that we are all responsible for our actions, our behavior, and our words, and we must take responsibility for everything we say and do. When you get your head wrapped around that, you can no longer think of life as a series of random events – you participate in life in a way you didn’t previously. I am the architect of my destiny. I am in charge. I bring that to me, or I push that away. You can no longer blame other people for things that happened to you. The other is that there is order in the universe, even though it looks like chaos. We separate the world into categories: this is good and this is bad. But life is set up to trick us. It’s a series of illusions we invest in. And ultimately those investments don’t serve our understanding, because physicality is always going to let you down, because physicality doesn’t last.

      • mob: operation kill the b!+@# August 28, 2012


        Lunatic, why are you addressing me with this FOOLISHNESS? You are not Nietzsche so have several seat! –> __/__/

        Everything @spokentruth and I said about Oprah Winfrey is true! She is not going to interview a couple as the two of them will know how to handle & back Oprah’s fat as* up off them. She goes after the young blacks b/c she knows she can trip them up easily and get them to discuss information they should NEVER TELL THE GENERAL PUBLIC! Look at your girl Rihanna and the constant attacks leveled at her since her interview!

        ***And if you want someone to kiss your ass WASH IT FIRST! 🙂

    • Lax August 28, 2012

      Operah has had sit downs with Jayz, Goldie, Kelsy, Reba, Gabby, and countless others and since Operah don’t have a gun pointed at yo Watermelon crooked heads making yo asses watch, i say so what? Let Opreah have a sit down with Porky Pig and the Hillbillies if she want to it’s her money and sho enough her OWN who’s getting all the Entertainer to show up for this. And as simple as this you can always turn the show off are don’t watch until it’s yo Fave you want to watch DUUUUUUUHA! and small minded folks love using those names they uses in their HOODS off and on all of the time.

      • Lax August 28, 2012

        And being the bias person i am i know that Kelsey,
        Goldie, and Reba are not younsters and neither is Jayz.

  20. Absolved August 27, 2012

    This one might actually be worth watching. Unlike…

  21. ThatGrapefruitJuice August 27, 2012

    Oprah know what she doing or rather what she got to do. She wouldn’t be Oprah if she didn’t have a plan to win at reviving her struggling network. JHud is just in time with this interview before her album and movie releases.

    • Lax August 28, 2012

      Right On.

  22. ThatGrapeFruitJuice August 27, 2012

    Unlike that interview with Gaga. This interview and Rihanna interview I enjoyed. They both had their own different tragedy they need to try and put behind them and move on. Sadly, I think JHud is doing a better job at it and she is the one who got to be much stronger. Rihanna can get over her ish but still not strong enough to do so. I sympathize though b/c the d***** was her first love, lol, some love.

    • mob: operation kill the b!+@# August 28, 2012

      Rihanna’s so called” tragedy” is of her own design.
      1)She broke into CB’s phone.
      2)She read a text message from another female.
      3)She repeatedly attacked him until he attacked back.
      4)Then she went on a damn near 4 year campaign of hatred against him only to now reveal he is the “love of her horrible life” 0_O?

      Had she doen none of that, her life wouldn’t be a so called tragedy!

      ****Jennifer Hudson actually suffered a TRAGEDY. RihNOTHING is simply a tragedy waiting to happen to another teenage male she can use and expolit to stay relevant!

      • ThatGrapefruitJuice August 28, 2012

        Another teenage BOY! And I dont think Rihanna looking for a teenager and any boy no more. Im sure she don with that. She looking for a man, a real man, a strong man, a man surely who doesnt have a pencil. 🙂

    • Lax August 28, 2012

      @THAT GRAPE,,,You are so right on these Tragedy’s and that Beat Down has been TRULLY aired and i hope that from now on “This Is It” Perhaps some one will want to have a Sit down with Chris if they can get him to sign a Waver saying he will only sit his hot ass down in a chair and PROMISE not to Throw That Sucker through a Window, again!

      • mob: operation kill the b!+@# August 28, 2012

        Poor thing, ill-infomred yet steady trying to make a failed point! CB never throw a chair through a window. The widow was gated/barred so that was all but impossible!

        Psss….Oprah will never get Chris to speak to her!! Again, Jen’s situation was an actually tragedy!

      • ThatGrapefruitJuice August 28, 2012

        🙂 Stop it already lax 🙂

  23. Hello world, US Republican poised to steal another election by lying their way there. August 27, 2012

    I’m curious what Oprah’s next interview will be.

  24. Owen August 27, 2012

    I respect Jennifer so much, I will see & meet her next tour, she’s so inspirational. I will watch.

    • Lax August 28, 2012

      @OWEN, ,,cosign and Jennifer is another artist,
      actress who came from the bottom up to achieve through
      and aganist “All Odds”, and that voice she seem to have been born with it.

  25. That B*tch (would you like a rihfund with that)? August 27, 2012

    Lmao @ Oprah thinking these celeb interviews will keep her channel running. What’s gonna happen when she’s interviewed all the stars in Hollywood? If Oprah would admit to the world that she’s in love with Gayle then im sure she’ll have no problem with ratings.
    Anyways good luck to J-Hudson.

    • mob: operation kill the b!+@# August 28, 2012

    MOB Yo ass is clearly HURTING INSIDE and these sit down
    Oprah is doing no matter if it’s to keep her “OWN” on track or
    not is clearly EATING YO ASS ALIVE, Poor thing KEEP YO
    MEDS CLOSE, because we would not want yo BITTER ASS
    to STROKE out then we will be missing all of yo cursing and
    name calling, now wouldn’t we. Now start “CLAPPING BACK”
    at me because u r Bitter, Pissy, Salty and all of those things
    that keeps a scumbag up set to the highest degree and when
    yo ass get a chance check that Video out on “RD” showing yo
    boy Chris leaving the same place where Rihanna was the
    other night Scumbag! #stay bitter, pressed, and pissed i don’t
    give a half a Phuck,,,,,

    • Lax August 28, 2012

      Mob yo ass right along with many talks shyt
      from sun up to sun down or RIHANNA and i don’t give a
      Phuck, because i know that through all of yo shyt talking
      and changing yo names on this site to come after Rihanna and even me for DEFENDING RIHANNA like i do the bottom line is Once upon a time i AGREED With yo ass on the FACT that i felt Jayz should give Chris a break and i see that Jay have wished chris and Rihanna well and that is/was a good thing and i also am not two years old are four WHILE i might not express myself like the rest of you who are well bread in english and grammar my point is i also know that if i as a human being would start calling Chris all kinds if SLANDEROUS names and this and that, it would not stop are slow Chris down as far as working hard and doing what he has to do as a young black man out there trying to make a living. If i would spend my time BLOGGING about chris’s shorting coming and let it consume my entire blogging experiences then that HATE would take away from my BLOGGING fun. Yo SCUMBAG ASS have got a FIXATION on Rihanna and to tell the truth i am not for certain is yo ass isn’t Chris’s mom because of the way yo ass types
      because that article i posted from Jezeble clearly stated that mamma breezy types in Caps off and on. I said all of this to say this yo ass are always bitter, pissy and salty and it seems to me that RIHANNA is the only person who TRIGGERS taht in you. I mean it has been a long time since i have seen yo ass type anything POSITIVE, but through all of my bad ass english and grammar i can still Act the biggest dam Fool on this BLOG SITE BUT,,,,,Then from time to time i can MUSTER up enough energy to post something POSITIVE even if it’s not pertaining to what we are talking about, are even if it does not PERTAIN are have a dam thing to do with who, and what the TOPIC IS POSTED ON AND ABOUT. hATE ON deery while these artist, Rihanna , oprah and others live their lives like ” IT’S GOLDEN” dam always negative even as
      hard as the BEY HIVE goes in on RIHANNA often times they still will give RIHANNA a pass in spite of themselves. It’s one thing to play, talk shyt and have fun with BLOGGIN on this site and it’s another when their’s a BITTER SCUMBAG, rising their ugly head up all the PHUCKING time and sprewing hnate and no Positivelty at all from time to time all of the PHUCKING TIMES, MOB you and a few others must live such a WORTHLESS MISERABLE ASS LIFE, REAL TALK,,,,

      • mob: operation kill the b!+@# August 28, 2012

        @Lax Don’t you find it interesting that a groups of disgusting feminNAZi’s would attack an actual victim of domestic violence? Hummm,….oh well! I love Mom Joyce she’s such as strong, beautiful and loving women. God was truly good when he blessed Christopher with her!

    • mob: operation kill the b!+@# August 28, 2012


      Please, you posted a thesis and I don’t have time to wade through your typical meandering. However,I will say none of what you posted changes the fact that Rihanna should have told the truth, stop lying, and move on as it’s been almost 4 years now! Either tell it all or say nothing further. She is giving everyone whiplash as they attempt to follow her chciken logic.

      If Chris had “soul less eyes” and was “so mean” to you, why would you want him back so badly after all these years? Oh, right the TRUTH is that he loved you, sacrificed everything to protect you and your actions on the night ,and you just now realized you wont find another who will ever be that loyal – or foolish – again! <– Lets just be honest shall we?

  28. Lax August 28, 2012


    I can try and shy talk any of the entertainer are artist and the clock on their
    lives still rolls on they are still making their $$$$$$$$ and they are still
    paying their bills. Yo thing is Chris Brown AND KNOW THAT I DON’T DISLIKE CHRIS
    I HATE what happende between him and Rihanna but i also know that shyt happens. I notice how when it’s about Chris yo ass RISES UP LIKE GOLIAH and
    always at the ready to defend chris right or wrong and i have noticed how when i posted the link about Chris buying RIHANNA roses and that 70,000 neclace YO
    ASS jumped on that like a dog on a bone, i also noticed how when i posted the link about Chris doing the MOON WALK with that chair, on “GMA” yo ass was to the ready to DEFEND like nobody’s business. But yo ass want to make things about Chris be not TRUE, but yo ass is always bring up all of these who has pohucked up in the pass and was given a slap on the wrist in other words a Pass, BUT you need to realize that this is about Chris AND HE IS STILL TRYING TO GET HIS GRIND ON AND STILL WORKING HIS ASS OFF AND BESIDES THAT CHRIS IS YOUNG AND Black WHAT I MEAN IS mob LIFE WILL GO ON AND OFTEN TIME WE ARE JUDGED BY THE COMPANY WE KEEP. Besides that i don’s
    expect people to treat RIHANNA, JENNIFER are any of the black artict like the treat say taylor, britney are gaga, but say what you want to say there’s still many black artist’s who can still get it up just look at Jennifer and rihanna and they have both come for the BOTTOM up no $$$$ so to say they both stepped out on Faith and ” Look At Them Now” so carry on with YO NAME CALLING just know that SLANDERING AND NAME CALLING AND ALL OF THE NEGATIVE vibes will not slow are stop, oprah, jennifer, rihanna are beyoince are chris for that matter, Real Talk….

  29. Lax August 28, 2012

    No MAN wants Rihanna. When you’ve sucked as many industry d***s and laid on your back to anyone who wants to crawl in btw your thighs, what can you expect? Couple that with the fact that EVERYONE KNOWS THIS CHICK IS LYING ABOUT CHRIS BROWN! She does nothing but constantly point the finger at him. After 4 years sweetie its time for you to either tell the truth or just SHUT THE F*CK UP!

    HEEEEEY MOB she must have did a hell of a job on yo boy Chris because
    there’s no report’s written are on Video where CHRIS has jumped from are ran from the Caribbean queen,SCUMBAG… i love these kinds of coomments from
    yo ass MOB because it let the world know that if nothing else RIHANNA has got the BEDROOM on Lock, SCUMBAG. and it’s great to know that RIHANNA can still get it up, scumbag.
