Cantone: 'Hudson Will Be Stronger After Tragedies'

JENNIFER HUDSON's SEX AND THE CITY co-star MARIO CANTONE is confident the singer/actress will bounce back from the brutal murders of her mother, brother and nephew, because she's "just phenomenal".
The star's mum Darnell Donerson and brother Jason Hudson were found shot dead at their home in Chicago, Illinois on Friday (24Oct08), while the body of her seven-year-old nephew Julian King was found in the back of an abandoned SUV in the city on Monday (27Oct08).
Cantone admits he was rocked by the tragic news, and his thoughts are with Hudson as she mourns her loved ones.
He tells MTV, "Here she is - she's so sweet and lovely, she's brilliant, her album is on the top of the charts - and then this happens. I feel so awful for her. I just can't imagine what she's going through.
"If she wants to throw herself into her work, great. If she doesn't, she shouldn't. She should do what she needs to do and not let anybody tell her what to do. I just hope she takes all the time she needs and surrounds herself with everyone who loves her so that she can get through this in her own way and in her own time."
And Cantone is sure Hudson will emerge a stronger person from the tragedy - and he can't wait to work with her again one day "because she's just phenomenal".
He adds, "I hope, if we do the (Sex and the City) sequel, she'll be a part of it. There's time. It's still early, and I'm hoping that happens, because that would be nice. I just can't wait until she's ready to come back and sing for all of us."
Police have arrested William Balfour - the estranged husband of Hudson's sister Julia - in connection with the slayings, but he has yet to be charged.
