Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon will throw their third “wedding”

Photo by: RE/Westcom/ 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED 3/7/10 Mariah Carey and Nick

Sometimes I think derogatory things about Nick Cannon. I’ll be looking at photos of him, and I’ll mutter “Purse carrier.” Or “Mr. Mariah.” Or “You poor bastard.” But as Nick and Mariah Carey approach their second wedding anniversary, I have to admit that whatever their relationship really boils down to (purse carrying, feedings, helping her drunk ass into bed), it’s working for them. I think Nick might have actually known what he was getting into when he married Mariah. And I think that as long as he treats her right, she’s going to spoil him. Plus, it seems like both of them enjoy a sense of whimsy, an old-school joy of celebrity exploitation. They seem to think they exist as gifts for all of us to enjoy. Which they kind of are. Anyway, all of this to say that Nick just announced that he and Mariah will be having their third “wedding” for their second anniversary. They’re going to renew their vows and Mariah will probably get drunk and Nick will pour her into bed, just like their honeymoon.

So nice, they’re doing it thrice!

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon will be tying the knot for the third time on April 30, which is their two-year wedding anniversary. Expect a similar blowout in 2011, 2012 … and beyond, as long as they’re together.

“We get married every year! That’s our thing,” Cannon explained to at Monday’s PepsiCo Feed America Volunteer Day event in NYC.

“So it’s going to be our third wedding this year. That’s what we’ll be doing on the actual [anniversary]…We’ll do something…A party or event, just to celebrate.”

The Grammy-winning singer is definitely getting more bling from her spouse. Cannon confirmed to Us that he’ll be getting his wife another diamond ring for the occasion.

“That’s totally right,” he said. “This is the third ring I have to buy…It’ll be something different. Something good.”

Carey’s engagement ring from Jacob & Co. Jewelers reportedly cost $2.5 million. After dating for just six weeks in early 2008, Cannon, 29 and Carey, 40, wed on the singer’s private island in The Bahamas in a surprise bash.

“It’s nice,” Cannon gushed. “We like being married every year.”

What’s the traditional gift for the second anniversary? Pink diamonds? I wish. Or sapphires. Oh, wouldn’t that be heaven? Your husband would have to buy a different spectacular jewel for every anniversary. Oh, but Nick isn’t really shelling out his money for all of these “presents” right? Mariah buys them for herself, and Nick “gives” them to her, correct? She’s the one with the big money. Plus, she probably doesn’t let him pick anything out.

Here are some of their greatest hits from two years of red carpet appearances:

    They are sooo over-the-top, but if they’re happy I guess that’s all that matters.

  2. souths_sweetest says:

    This couple does some ridiculous things IMO.

    However – I disagree on the “it being her money” bit. It’s THEIR money and sure, Nick doesn’t have *MARIAH* money but the dude isn’t hurting for his own money either…like K-fed was with Britney.

    Just a thought!

    And my Mariah is quite the yo-yo dieter isn’t she?!

  3. bite me says:

    wrong Nick his own money, and the tone of this article leaves a bad taste in my mouth

  4. Tess says:

    Good God, she looks like she could squash him like a grape.

    But as long as they’re having fun, no problem.

  5. Bodhi says:

    The vitriol is palpable today, isn’t it?

  6. moe says:

    I think Mariah just likes being the center of attention.

    She is looking pretty thick in some of those pics.

  7. GatsbyGal says:

    Just think…when Nick Cannon was a younger man, he probably DREAMED of hooking up with Mariah. She was in her prime then, after all. I wonder if she’s all that he was hoping for and more…

    Probably not.

  8. Liz says:

    She keeps “spanx” in business!

  9. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Is it just me or does she look more like his drunk mom than his wife?

  10. sophia says:

    Moooriah is looking thicker than ever…and why is she always sticking her ass???gas problem..!i bet she smells.. hAppy anniversary farter..Mooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  11. bellaluna says:

    Actually, Nick, getting married every year is Seal & Heidi’s thing, but they seem pretty laid back so I bet they won’t mind. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    I’m happy for them. I just wish Mariah would own her “happily married weight gain” and stop stuffing herself into too-small outfits.

  12. Naye in VA says:

    He defenitely has quite a bit of his own money. he’s big in entertainment just like Ashton Kutcher. i belive he produces movies and a couple of shows, plus he’s VP over at Nickelodeon. He’s not even acting anymore i think thats how much money he makes. i dont think he “wooed” Mariah on her money, i think he was really dropping some dimes to get her. Now she really has quite a bit more that him but she’s also had 20+ more years to make it.

    But i think its something to say for this guy having his first million at age 15. Im happy for them. they seem idk, good togehter

  13. Hautie says:

    Sadly another pretty girl that can not dress herself, for her size.

    Yet, the media rarely points it out to Mariah, like they do with Jessica Simpson.

    And Mariah is intentionally wearing clothes two sizes too small.

  14. sandy says:

    nick is handsome and fun, he is his own man. i have a innocent crush on him.

  15. RHONYC says:

    you forgot to mention his other official function as husband (clause 13, para. 3):

    help squeeze Mariah into her Spanx before each red carpet event.


  16. kelbear says:

    I cannot stand Nick!! He has always gotten on my nerves for as long as he has been around ugh. And Mariah will never be the same again. She used to seem so fun, now she is just blah.

  17. tango says:

    Third ‘wedding’???

    That means they have BIG probs-and I’m not refering to Mariah’s size!

  18. flash says:

    Red dress pic: He’s so skinny and she’s so fat. It looks like she could eat him! Be careful Nick, be very careful. . .

  19. benny says:

    Mariah is emotionally retarded. She never grew up mentally – still dresses as if she’s 16 and slender, still wants to play “princess” and having a wedding every year. It’s kinda sad, actually.

  20. lucy2 says:

    There’s something oddly cartoonish about the two of them. But I guess if they’re happy, good for them.

    It does seem though that those who continuous have to convince everyone else they’re so in love with over the top gestures like that are usually the ones who split soon.

  21. Camille says:

    Ridiculous. If they manage to make it to 10-20-30+ years of marriage then I will be impressed. 2 years of marriage isn’t that amazing. Mind you I guess in HW it kind of is…and that is pathetic.
    2 year wedding anniversary is something like paper or cardboard or something like that, guess that isn’t ‘romantic’ enough for them LOL.

  22. yae says:

    Oh feed the poor or something.

    Or get some kid a needed tuition.

  23. Emily says:

    @benny, I don’t think she even made it to 16. Try an 8yo raised entirely on a diet of cupcakes and fairy bread, who watches nothing but Disney princess movies. Bitch probably thinks unicorns are real.

  24. RUFFNSWEET says:

    Man, Nick looks like her son standing next to her!!! OMG. And please ya’ll know Mr. Mariah don’t have money like that for $2.5 million dollar ring. People do the math. She pays for everything! Everything he wears she’s bought. Everyone knows it.

  25. temi says:

    they are soo cute togather,i just hope they start having them

  26. pinkbeats says:

    You got several more people excited than I have got been able to. I hope we secure more people o board and moving in all of your right beats

  27. Excellent site, keep up the good work
