Mariah Carey shows off her lingerie closet on Oprah

Mariah Carey was on Oprah yesterday and she talked about her diet and exercise plan and showed some of her moves with her trainer. She does isometric exercises and water aerobics and her workout looked surprisingly easy. Oprah clarified after the segment showing Mariah working out at an indoor pool that Mariah does do 60-90 minute workouts and that those were just additional moves. Mariah said that’s true but that it’s more about diet for her now. She has a cook prepare low-calorie meals planned by her trainer:


After a close friend made a comment about her weight, Mariah says she was inspired to make permanent life changes and get into shape once and for all. Mariah says she has a secret weight loss weapon—her nutrition and fitness coach, Patricia. “Finally I just said, ‘It has to be a life decision if you’re going to really lose the weight,'” she says. “So Patricia created a number of things for me…one is a workout regimen.”

Mariah says her workouts typically last for 60 to 90 minutes and combine cardio with resistance training. To tone her arms, Mariah uses her own body weight and stretches to sculpt long, lean lines. She likes to hop into a pool for the cardio portion of her workout. “What’s great about working out in the pool is the water acts as resistance,” she says. “You’re actually exercising twice as hard without feeling it.”

Mariah says the most important part of her new, healthier lifestyle is her diet. Patricia tries to cook Mariah’s food without using oil and butter. She’s also helped her stop snacking.

When Patricia told Mariah to cut mac ‘n’ cheese out of her diet, Mariah says the news broke her heart. “That’s the thing that I have difficulty letting go of because that’s comfort food,” she says.


Oprah said that Mariah’s main closet is an incredible 3,000 square feet, and that she has a secondary walk in closet just for her lingerie in her new apartment in NY. The sexy sleepwear is arranged by color and includes items from one of her favorite vacation spots, Capri, Italy. Mariah said she also collects perfume bottles. Here’s the clip:

And here’s Mariah’s exercise routine. It’s like Pilates but it does look rather dainty. Oprah said that this pool wasn’t in Mariah’s new NY apartment.

Mariah Carey is promoting her new album, E=MC2, which is out in the US today. She now has more number one hits than Elvis, and is second only to the Beatles.

Thanks to for the pictures.

    I like her sure she’s crazy but only inward she’s not saying that the Gov was in a plot to inflict gangsta rap on us. If it makes her happy to pronce around in 2 sizes too small clothing then thats the worst she can do, no crotch shots no crazy driving skills no revolving door of men at her house. and she’s got a Jack Russell ..points !
    Oprah kinda looked jealous of her figure. I would say she had help from a plastic surgeon Her food and exercise routine sounds very pratical too I hate it when all the celebs say yoga and Pill-la–tes… and a strict diets.. please thats BS at least Mariah says she has a bite of Mac& cheese.

    I’d die if I had to give up the Blue Box!

    I’ve heard that water aerobics is really good for you. *Sigh, I’d love to have a personal trainer…

    yoga and pilates has done WONDERS for my body. Absolute wonders… but with out me eating right… it wont make me THIN. I wish I had a personal chef! lol. It’d make things easier. Its also hard to diet on a REALLY tight budget. Diet products- bars and shakes- are expensive. and so are salads etc when you’re eating out. Living in NYC makes it hard not to eat out!


    But Mariah TOTALLY has a “lipo belly” it just looks wrong… like its been lipo-ed

    Mariah’s problem has never been her weight. There is nothing wrong with her body that a decent stylist and letting going of the Wet Seal wardrobe won’t fix.

    Mariah is delusional. I don’t think she is at all attractive, and gives off the aura of being totally full of herself. I love the Wet Seal comment above. So true!

    Hi nice post, i have come across your site once before when searching for something so i was just wondering something. I love your theme, would it happen to be a free one i can download, or is it a custom one you had made? In a few months i may get my own domain, but i don’t know how to setup themes so i don’t mind paying someone to make me a nice one and set it all up. Do you know any good WordPress designer companies, thanks for your help. 🙂
