*What’s going on with the ever huggable, so loveable Ruben Studdard? Well Singersroom.com says he is scheduled to be a part of TV One’s “Life After.”

“Once a choir boy, R&B crooner Ruben Studdard became American Idol’s first African American winner during the show’s nail-biting second season, edging out runner-up Clay Aiken.

The show will explore the behind the scenes life of the star as he works to revive his fame and answer some of those questions music fans and Studdard lovers have been asking. Season two premiers July 19.
