in other reality tv-related news….

steppin’ to the big screen side
american idol contestant jennifer hudson is set to play effie white in the movie version of dreamgirls. she’ll be singing and I am telling you I’m not going, the song frenchie davis sang a bajillion times on entertainment tonight, after it was discovered that she posed for a naughty nudie site. btw, frenchie can truly belt out that song. I know because I heard it 8 times a week when I worked on the stage version of dreamgirls. beyonce knowles will play deena, jamie foxx is curtis, eddie murphy is james thunder early, and danny glover plays marty. as a self-proclaimed theatre geek, this is one of my favorite shows, and I cannot wait for december 2006.
