Whenever we see David Otunga aka ‘Punk’, it’s always confusing as to why a smart, educated and good-looking Harvard Law grad was trying to find love on a show like, ‘I Love New York’, however, it must have all paid off since that is how he caught Jennifer Hudson’s eye. Wendy Williams was interesting in talking to David about his ‘Come up’ with J Hud, so she recently invited him on the show as part of her ‘Hot Topics’ segment.
While there, David dished on his relationship with Jennifer, including how the first met through mutual friends (old school hook up style, too cute), how Jennifer said he saved her life because she was visiting him instead of at her mother’s house when her family was killed, and how he is prepping Jennifer to take the stand in her family’s murder trial.

It’s a blessing in disguise, you know —

David That’s where she would’ve been was at her mom’s house. That’s where she always was if I wasn’t there.
On Counseling Jennifer to Take the Witness Stand
I’m just here to support her anyway that I can — emotionally, just through everything. It’ll be nice to put it behind us finally.
On When They’re Getting Married
This is probably the second most popular question I get. The wedding is coming, but like you said there’s a trial we have to get through first. Some things we need to sort out in terms of that but it’s coming. It’s coming.
