You got Punk’d! Turns out Jennifer Hudson is OK being the breadwinner. Reps for the star confirm that the Dreamgirls diva recently got engaged to David Ortunga, better known as the lovable, jerry-curled “Punk” from I Love New York 2. Ortunga, who is a Harvard law school grad, proposed to Hudson on her 27th birthday. Congrats to Punk for moving up from New York to the Hudson. And to Jennifer Hudson: WTF?!

Three-Ring “Circus.” Speaking of 27th b-days, Britney Spears has announced she’ll release her newest CD on December 2, the pop star’s 27th birthday. The CD will be titled, appropriately enough, “Circus” and is already underway. No word on whether K. Fed or Adnan will make a cameo appearance on any of the tracks-after all, what’s a circus without a couple of freaks?

Kanye West not a fan of Flashing cameras. The larger than life (in his own head) star reportedly went on the offensive and “attacked” a member of the paparazzi who was trying to take his picture, a source claims. Kanye and his peeps claim that the singer merely asked the photog to get out his grill and threw the shutterbug’s camera when he didn’t comply. Kanyeazy says that it was a matter of privacy and personal space. Which makes total sense, considering Kanye West is one of the most private and media-phobic celebs, eh?

Getting Even (Stevens). Transformers star and sleaze-ball Shia LeBeouf opened up to Entertainment Tonight about his harrowing car accident that almost cost him his life. LeBeouf claims he “could have died” when talking about being hit at 70 mph and flipping his SUV. The up-and-comer seemed more concerned with his bandaged hand than his irresponsible behavior and endangerment of his passenger while allegedly under the influence of alcohol. Shia, my friend-your wound will heal, but your douchebaggedness will remain with you forever.
