A weight loss center on the south side of Chicago will bear the name of actress and singer Jennifer Hudson. The “Weight Watchers Jennifer Hudson Center,” which opened on Tuesday, will donate a portion of its revenue to an organization set up to honor Hudson’s deceased nephew.  “I never thought I would make it to have my own center,” Hudson told The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m so honored to be here and see this day.” The Oscar winner is a spokesperson for Weight Watchers.
