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.
The 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.
But 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.
