SHAPE’s April cover girl Vanessa Hudgens has been showing off her amazingly toned body on the talk show circuit this week. We got the workout that got her lifting 180 pounds and ready for her role in Sucker Punch. DWTS contestant Wendy Williams sure looked sultry in this season’s premiere but pulled a low score of 14. This week, Wendy shared her fears with us about the upcoming season and who she thinks is her biggest competition on DWTS. Another TV competition that had tongues wagging this week was the Biggest Loser. Contestants wanted to go home and were upset with one TBL loser for actually losing weight!
