People had a lot to talk about at the Dreamgirls Premiere last night in NY. First,
Eddie Murphy showed up with new girlfriend Tracey Edmonds despite rumors that ex Spice Girl Mel B is pregnant with his baby. And then everyone was watching for any tension between Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson. Beyonce recently denied rumors of a feud between the two, saying she has no hard feelings against Jennifer for getting the better part in the film. The two posed for pictures together and everything seemed to be fine. She left the screening, however, soon after. Here's more:
Jennifer Hudson got a standing ovation in the middle of the movie when she finished singing "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going."
When the film was over, there was another standing O, and the entire audience stood still and watched the main end credits.
Co-star Beyonce was long gone by then. She worked the red carpet, did her publicity and then split with boyfriend Jay-Z. She [also said] she'd rented a private plane and was ferrying him off for a birthday surprise. Insiders were split on whether they went as far as St. Bart's or only Atlantic City.
You'd think she would have made an exception for the premiere of her big movie. Of course it has got to be hard when a newcomer is getting all of the Oscar buzz. Lots more people came out to support the Dreamgirls including Rosie O'Donnell, Terrence Howard, Vanessa Minnillo, Spike Lee, and more so read more
