Ah, married life is but a fairy tale for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon who renewed their vows on Tuesday at the “Happiest Place on Earth.”
The over-the-top event was a cause of double celebration as Mariah and Nick celebrated five years of wedded bliss, as well as their twins’ 2nd birthday at Disneyland in California.
The whole clan dressed the part, with Mariah donning a fairy princess frock, Nick as Prince Charming and the twins rocking costumes identical to Mom and Dad.
Naturally, the couple renewed their vows right in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.
“On our way to renew our vows,” Carey Tweeted. “I love you @Nick Cannon.”
According to Entertainment Tonight, Carey and daughter Monroe were picked up in a horse-drawn carriage from the Dream Suite at the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. They were then taken to Main Street to meet up with Cannon and son Moroccan. The group all walked down the aisle together as one big happy family for the outdoor ceremony.
Meanwhile, Nick, 32, has not exactly denied reports that Mariah, 43, made be replaced on “American Idol” with former judge Jennifer Lopez in order to boost ratings.
Nick tells Life & Style of the speculation, “These rumors come from anywhere!”
Though Fox denied it, the buzz isn’t sitting well with Nick. “My wife is the biggest superstar in the world,” he tells Life & Style, on stands now. Speaking in the past tense, Nick says of Mariah’s time on the show: “I know she had a wonderful time on Idol.”
He was a standout contestant when he appeared on season six of “American Idol”, but stardom hasn’t exactly beckoned for Sanjaya Malakar.
And the proof of that is in the pudding.
In a photo obtained by In Touch, the 23-year-old is seen earning extra cash by performing in NYC subway stations. “He was singing ‘(Sittin’ on) the Dock of the Bay,’” an eyewitness, who recently spotted Sanjaya inside the First Avenue L station, tells the mag, on stands now.
Apparently he still has the musical chops (but not the crazy hairstyles) that won him instant fame and a seventh-place finish in 2007. “A handful of people did double takes,” notes the eyewitness. “The guy’s still a decent singer!”
After his stint on “American Idol”, Sanjaya made numerous television quest appearances on pop culture parody shows.
Mariah snuggled Monroe as American Idol premiered on Wednesday night
She made her big debut on Wednesday night as an “American Idol” judge, but the role Mariah Carey relishes the most is that of wife and mother.
In an exclusive interview with In Touch, on newsstands now, Mariah opens up about her life as Nick Cannon’s wife and what it’s like to have 21-month-old twins, admitting that having kids wasn’t always in the cards for her.
“I never thought I’d experience motherhood,” she admits. “My career was my life.” But all that changed when she met Nick. “When you find the right person, you [want to] go through it,” she tells In Touch.
And now, the couple have finally settled into their roles as parents and are learning to embrace the unique personalities of their little ones.
“He’s my little buddy,” Mariah admits of her son, Moroccan. “We watch movies together. He can be a little more aggressive, but not in a bad way — he’ll give his sister a little tap when she’s trying to give him a hug. Monroe is just a sweetie.”
Regardless of their different personas, Mariah feels more adoration now than she ever has.
“I’m so in love,” the superstar admits of her new family. “Every moment is incredible.”
Mariah Carey fears for her life and Nicki Minaj is furious. Welcome to the current state of play between American Idol’s warring divas.
After their verbal smackdown on Tuesday at the Charlotte, N.C auditions, things have escalated and turned even nastier (if that is possible).
Carey has spoken to Barbara Walters and revealed that she has had to add extra security after she claims that Minaj did threaten to shoot her during their confrontation on Tuesday.
“She said she’s very concerned,” Walters continued. “She is with her twins. She doesn’t feel that anything would happen, but Nicki is unpredictable, and Mariah says she can’t take a chance and she has hired extra security.”
While the confrontation was captured on video, the threat of a gun was not.
But according to Carey, several “Idol” staffers, including hairdressers and producers, heard it, too.
Minaj is furious about Carey’s interview and claims and has taken to Twitter to rant her feelings.
“Barbara walters didn’t reach out from our team,” Minaj tweeted. “I guess we’re too dangerous.”
But she was just warming up.
She later took to the social networking site to unleash her fury.
“I don’t call tmz n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet,” she added.“Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave.”
Continuing on with her attack, she wrote:“ I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that nicki is the best judge we’ve had since simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn.”
“American Idol” producers are staying out of the duelling diva battle, most likely as behind the scenes, they are rubbing their hands with glee as they can foresee that the Carey/Minaj battle could equate to ratings gold for the show.
He’s been plagued by health problems, but Nick Cannon opened up to guests at the launch event of American Gentleman Magazine Presented by Hennessy V.S in L.A to reveal that he is feeling better than he has in quite some time.
He was overheard telling fans that his health had, indeed, been in jeopardy but he was now “doing much better,” as he’s been working hard to take care of himself and getting a lot of rest.
He seemed in great spirits, joking around with admirers and laughing. When a photographer asked him if wife Mariah Carey was indeed in talks to be a judge on the upcoming season of “American Idol,” he responded with a coy smile, saying, “I don’t know if she’s in talks, she talks to a lot of people. I’m not her manager, I’m her husband.”
And, as we know now, Mariah has just confirmed that she is taking Jennifer Lopez’s spot on the talent show.
The deal was announced with show biz flair at the Television Critics Association summer tour in Beverly Hills during comments by Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly about the exodus of Idol judges.
“I am so excited to be joining Idol,” Carey said via speaker phone. “First of all, I wanted to be there today and I wish I could’ve been there to tell you, but I think you know this all kind of just happened real quickly, so I can’t wait to get started in a couple months.”
The deal was said to have been struck earlier today.
Charlie Sheen is at it again, this time promoting himself through his new show, “Anger Management,” on the Ryan Seacrest KISS-FM morning show. But is it true he’s considering being a judge on A.I.?
Sheen: “It kind of came out of nowhere and I responded with a quote just to sort of check the temperature of it or test the waters, haven’t heard anything back. I guess it got some people curious.” It seems so out of the blue that it almost made perfect sense. I thought this could be a lot of fun. Seriously…I’m genuinely interested. It’s so different, it could be radical.”
On Leaving Twitter:
“There was something about it that never felt right and it’s hard to tell 8 million people: ‘Hey, don’t take it personally.’ It just never felt like it represented who I am and who my fans have come to know me to be. I’ve always been a really private guy and then to be reporting every 14 minutes about what kind of dressing you had on your salad?! There’s enough information out there as it is, for me to keep fueling that…I don’t know. I just lost a passion for it, I guess that’s what it was.”On Being Back On TV:
“It’s exciting! It’s not just coming back on, but to come back on with something that I’m really proud of. It’s really exciting to see the response and to see how people are really tuning into this thing and just not being let down. It’s a readjustment, because I left a show they were quite fond of and got very familiar with these characters and these stories and then one day it just got shut off, but I’m excited to bring something back. It’s so different, you can’t even compare the two.”
So, is Charlie having fun on the new set?:
“I am. It was the first time in a while that I was excited to get to work and then sad to leave. There’s an environment there that welcomes all types of input, myself included. I don’t feel like just a hired gun or a puppet. Everybody there is striving for the same goal, which is really exciting.”

The real reason behind Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler’s American Idol departure
Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler reportedly didn’t quit “American Idol”. The pair was said to be fired after demanding more money.
According to The Wrap, Jennifer allegedly received $12 million for her first season and $15 million for her second season. This time around, she was hoping for $17 million. Steven Tyler’s negotiations didn’t even get that far.
Is this the end for Idol? It sure seems that way.
Oprah opens up about the toughest year in her career
Oprah Winfrey has opened up about her tumultuous and tough year, which saw her lose her golden TV halo.
On Sunday night’s episode of “Oprah Builds a Network.”, she revealed the battles she has face since launching her OWN television network last year. ”I don’t know of a worse week of my entire life,” Winfrey says at one point in the two-part documentary of her first year as CEO of OWN. “I certainly did not expect the velocity of schadenfreude — meaning people sort of lying in wait for you to fail, or make a mistake.”
It’s official: Women are smarter than men
And, finally, here’s a great water cooler topic for today.
According to new research, women are brighter than men. For the first time in IQ testing, psychologists have found that women’s scores have surpassed those of men. One possible explanation for the rise is that women’s lives have become more demanding as they work between maintaining a job and raising a family.
With ratings down, and rumors long swirling that Jennifer Lopez wouldn’t return to “American Idol” for a third season, her admission earlier today that she thinks it’s time to move on, came as little surprise.
But what was a surprise and seemed to come as a bolt out of the blue, is the news just in that Steven Tyler has revealed he too will not be returning to the show.
“After some long, hard thoughts, I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress ‘American Idol’ before she boils my rabbit,” Tyler said in a statement. “I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back — but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band. … The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass.”
Mike Darnell, president of alternative entertainment at Fox, said that it has been a “tremendous honor” to have Steven on the show. “We are very sad that Steven has chosen to focus more on his music,” said Darnell, “but we always knew when we hired a rock ‘n’ roll legend, he would go back to the music.” He added that they would love to see Tyler back on the show in the future.
Which brings us nicely to our segue: Is there a future for “American Idol”?
