Where Are They Now: The Men of “I Love New York 1 & 2”
David Otunga was a Harvard law graduate from Chicago, IL and surprised his family with his desire to appear on the show. Even though he was named “Punk” he proved that his name didn’t define him by once almost yoking up Real and Chance when they made an appearance to interrogate the men. Making it to the final three, he was eliminated in favor of Buddha.
While on the show he caught the eye of American Idol contestant and future Grammy and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson. Being a fan of “I Love New York,” they talked, went out on a date, and the two fell in love, giving Hudson her first child. The engaged couple has kept it together through her familial tragedy, and she has been supportive of him not pursuing a career in law, but instead a career into professional wrestling. As of recently he’s signed on to do a movie with Halle Berry named “The Hive.”
