Mariah Carey made Nick Cannon wait till wedding night

Come on, you know you care.tjndc5-5j79lxb92vow7agvaxp_original.jpg

Ok, so maybe you don’t. But in case you do, Mariah Carey shelled out some juicy details to the Mirror about her current marriage to actor Nick Cannon. The former Bedford resident explains how the two fell in love and why she made Nick Cannon wait until their wedding night to have sex.

The story mentions the two have tattooed the names of each other on their bodies. Hopefully Nick still has some leftoever Nickolodeon money to afford the skin surgery in a few months.

Ok fine, I’ll play nice today and leave the two alone. But check out the interview here.

Mariah Carey wants hubby to ‘get a job’

Wednesday marks the three-month wedding anniversary between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. Woo hoo! Time to bust out the kiwi-strawberry wine coolers!


Not so fast. According to latest issue of Life & Style Weekly, Nick Cannon has slipped into debt trying to keep up with the lifestyle of his former Bedford resident wife.

By the way, I’m well aware I posted an insanely dated picture of Mariah Carey. Because as good as Mariah’s last two albums have been, nothing will get my Indian derrière wiggling like her 1995 hit “Fantasy.”

Anyways, it looks like Nick Cannon’s stash of riches from his Nickelodeon days is running low. He did have that Wild N’ Out show on MTV, but the network has put it on hiatus by essentially saying “You can’t do that on television.”

But according to the magazine, it looks like Mariah has double dared her husband to take on the physical challenge of becoming an underwear model. Is there any truth behind this legend to show off his hidden temple? Who knows, maybe Calvin Klein does want to salute his shorts.

(The Nickelodeon reference count is at 5.)

There has also been all sorts of speculation that the marriage between the two is on the rocks, which both have denied. Earlier this month, Nick Cannon told People magazine that the marriage was the “best thing that ever happened to me.”

Well, it definitely wasn’t the movie Underclassman.

Mariah Carey’s first pitch is juuust a bit low

Yesterday, we gave you photographic evidence of Mariah Carey’s first pitch. And that was worth a looksie or two.

mariah-pitch.jpgToday, we give you video of said event, which is worth dozens more views. It sets back the feminist movement back decades — long before the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, the one featured in “A League of Their Own.” More like when Mordecai “Three-Finger” Brown was all the rage.

Where’s Harry Doyle (Bob Uecker) when you need him? “That pitch was juuuuust a bit low!”

A League of Her Own: Mariah Carey throws out fashion sense, first pitch at Japanese baseball game

Regardless of what kind of grip she used for the ceremonial first pitch at a Japanese baseball game early this morning, Mariah Carey threw fans a curveball with her wardrobe.

mariah-pitch.jpgTaking the mound before the Yomiuri Giants and Rakuten Eagles squared off, the former Bedford resident sported a midriff-baring satin jacket, jean shorts and sunglasses from Kanye West’s reject pile. And strangely, I think she pulled it off.

After LaTroy Hawkins blews last night’s game for the Yankees, it’s only a matter of time before the team signs Carey to a lucrative deal. Hey, she’s already got more hits this year than Morgan Ensberg.

Then again, there’s that whole Derek Jeter thing. It was hard enough to patch up his friendship with A-Rod, so maybe bringing an ex-girlfriend into the mix isn’t such a good idea.

OMG! (Or, in Spanish, ODM!) Menudo to play Playland this Saturday night!

Ricky Martin might be long gone, but fans will be piling into Rye Playland this Saturday when the latest manifestation of Menudo comes to town.

ricky.jpgFounded in 1970, Menudo has sold more than 40 million records worldwide and had roughly 2,309 members spanning four decades. The newest version of the group, which includes 15-year-old Dutchess County product Chris Moy, was created on the MTV TR3S reality show, “Making Menudo.”

I’m not exactly a huge Menudo fan, but there could be tremendous comedic incentive for going if the group decides to bring back these winning outfits for no apparent reason.

I still happen to think Playland’s crowning musical achievement was the music video for “Fantasy,” which features former Bedford resident Mariah Carey and the late, great ODB.

All the buzz from Diddy’s latest party is about who DIDN’T show up

Former Mount Vernon resident Sean “Diddy” Combs can always land his share of A-listers for his notorious parties, but when it came to this weekend’s shenanigans at MGM Grand at Mohegan Sun, the real story involved the halves of celebrity couples that failed to show.

AP/Stuart RamsonThe Boston Herald reported that singer and part-time stand-up comedian John Mayer (raised in nearby Fairfield County, by the way) arrived without purported gal-pal Jennifer Aniston. Perhaps that’s because they’re keeping things as private as possible, or y’know, she just wanted to do something else.

mariah.jpgBut the stranger absence that the Herald hawed at involved former Bedford resident Mariah Carey, who was nowhere to be found near recent husband Nick Cannon at Diddy’s party. I suppose there’s an ebb and a flow to all this; keep the wedding silent, make a huge scene about the nuptials to People magazine, then play it low-key.

Unless Oprah Winfrey swoops in first, do you think Mariah’s next public appearance with Cannon will be for the season premiere of “Wild ‘N Out”? Methinks yes.

Oh, by the way, Mariah Carey got married again

Lost in Clooney-mania was the fact that Mariah Carey got married to Nick Cannon on April 30.

mariah.jpgTrue, we’ve waited a while to cover this, perhaps because we were stunned by the news. Or, y’know, we’ve been busy. But it doesn’t seem so long ago that Carey was married to Tommy Mottola and living the good life in Bedford.

I read the happy couple got tattoos to celebrate their eternal love before they exchanged rings. “Winona forever,” anyone?

For her, it might just be true love (ahempublicitystuntcough), but for him it might just a convenient way for his colleagues on “Wild ‘N Out” to stop making Christina Milian jokes.

I’m still rooting for them to stick it out, but not exactly holding my breath. In fact, this Suburbarazzo is setting the over/under for separation at one year. Readers, are you taking the over or under?

Empire State Building goes lavender, pink and white in honor of Mariah Carey

mariah.jpgSo if you could select the colors for the Empire State Building’s lights over a weekend, what palate would you pick? I might opt for raw umber, burnt siena and periwinkle, especially if the Crayola company compensated me accordingly.

While it’s unclear from this report if former Bedford resident Mariah Carey selected her palate, the Manhattan landmark was highlighted with lavender, pink and white lights over the weekend in honor of the songstress’ success, according to People magazine. I suppose those are the flood-light equivalents of her movie “Glitter,” except millions more people saw the Empire State Building this weekend.

Carey, who recently appeared as a mentor and performed on “American Idol,” sold 463,000 copies of her new album, “E = MC2,” in its first week, propelling it to No. 1 on the charts. Last month, she became the top-charting solo artist of all time, surpassing Elvis Presley on the Billboard Hot 100 list with 18 No. 1 singles.

This weekend, I wonder if Bally’s will celebrate her success by having all their personal trainers wear high-heels on Stairmasters to pay tribute to her legendary “Cribs” episode.

Unlike members of ‘Making the Band,’ Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs to be immortalized on Walk of Fame


Mount Vernon-raised Sean “Diddy” Combs will be the newest celebrity to be represented on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a ceremony scheduled for this Friday.

In a quote posted by Hip Hop Galaxy, Combs was thrilled about the honor during an interview conducted by Jaime Foxx on Foxx’s Sirius satellite radio show:


I’m from Harlem, New York, so to get a star in Hollywood is just mind-blowing. You can get a lot of things but when you see those stars on the ground… that’s something I can’t even say I dreamed of and to be getting recognized for it is definitely something I’m gonna have my whole family out there for.


I’m not taking anything away from Harlem, and he might have mentioned Mount Vernon at another point during the interview, but here’s hoping he shows more love for his Westchester roots.

Arguably, Diddy’s least relevant contribution to pop culture could be his rapping skills. (His most memorable lyrics might be a tie between “Uh” and “Yeah” on Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize.”) But as a music producer, clothing mogul and music icon, it’s hard to argue against his overall success. Even if he’s merely famous for being famous, he’s done it successfully for more than a decade.
