We’re glad to see Jennifer Hudson back in the limelight after the tragedy that rocked her family just a few months ago. Last night, the singer and actress dominated the NAACP Image Awards. Hudson won three Image awards — best new artist, outstanding collaboration, and album for her self-titled CD. The audience gave her a standing ovation as she accepted her award. “Now don’t start me to crying again, y’all,” she said. “It’s always an honor to come home and feel welcome and to feel the love.” Not only did Hudson win three of her own awards, but “The Secret Life of Bees,” which Hudson starred in alongside Queen Latifah and Dakota Fanning, won for the best motion picture.

Whoever killed Julia Hudson’s mother, brother, and son — the police have arrested her husband William Balfour — did so because he is a disgusting, depraved human being and not for any reason connected with the way Julia looks. Your headline, “The Hudsons Were Killed Over This Woman????”, not only makes light of a tragic situation, but it also shows a complete lack of understanding of the motivations behind domestic violence. And it’s just really, really effing mean.
