Meet David Otunga, who successfully proposed to Jennifer Hudson on Friday night, her rep confirmed. They’ve been dating for less than a year.
Now, he’s not terrible looking — a little bit of a creep factor, but it could just be a bad picture — and he graduated from Harvard Law, so he’s not a dummy and he certainly has earning potential, but he’s also the same guy who was known as Punk on I Love New York 2.
I don’t have a whole lot of deal-breakers in my dating rulebook, but I’d be pretty wary of going out with a guy who appeared on any ultra-trashy reality dating show. I would be doubly wary of anyone who appeared on that show’s follow-up season.
It’s funny, because if I just heard Jennifer was marrying this buff dude with a Harvard Law degree, I’d be like, “Score, Jen! Totes jealous!” But add in that he appeared on I Love New York 2?
It’s like if someone said, “Listen, Beet. I have the perfect guy for you. He’s tall, he’s hot, he’s buff, he’s smart, he’s loaded, he’s funny, he’s sweet, he’s just amazing!”
I’d be like, “Woah, sounds great, when do I meet him?”
And then they were like, “Well, here’s the catch — and you just let me know if this is a deal-breaker, okay? — he died two months ago. But other than that? He’s ideal. What do you say?”
See, sometimes all it takes is one little piece of information to ruin an otherwise perfect guy.
Congrats, Jen, I guess.
