Mariah Carey dodged pregnancy rumors on ‘Ellen’

Every time Mariah Carey appears on Ellen Degeneres’ talk show, I just think she’s crazier and crazier. The last time she was on the show, she brought Ellen a bunch of very pink, girlie lingerie for Ellen to wear on her wedding night. Clearly, she doesn’t know Ellen very well. This time, Ellen tried to get the scoop on whether or not the singer is expecting her first child with new husband/manservant Nick Cannon. But Mariah wasn’t giving anything away.

“People are saying that you’re pregnant,” DeGeneres says.

“No, that’s OK,” Carey coyly replies.

Telling her she doesn’t have to answer, DeGeneres then tries to get Carey to take a sip of champagne.

But Carey tells her it’s “just fattening. That’s not champagne. You can’t have it on TV.

“I can’t believe you did this to me, Ellen,” she later adds. “This is peer pressure.”

DeGeneres then tells her, “let’s toast to you not being pregnant.”

Replies Carey, “Oh, my goodness! I can’t believe her! Why would we toast to that? How about to the future?”

Carey pretends to drink the champagne as she adds, “It’s too early for me. I only drink after 3 p.m.!”

“You’re pregnant,” DeGeneres flat-out tells her.

“I didn’t say that. No, no, no. My mother would be at home, like on the computer, like what are you talking about?” Carey replies. “We will let you know when we’re going to have a family.”

Can you imagine the diva demands if it’s true? A pregnant Mariah will make J-Lo look like a pioneer woman from the 1800s. We’re talking about a woman who has her microphones sterilized if anyone touches them. She’d probably only touch her kid with latex gloves and a surgical mask. And if the poor kid is a boy he’ll still be dressed in pink and purple and “Hello Kitty” gear. I wouldn’t wish that on a baby. Back in April, Mariah said she had ruled out being a mom because having children would make her feel violated.

    I’m truly torn about this one. I think it’s possible she could be pregnant, and yet at the end of the day, I can’t imagine Mariah doing *anything* that would pull focus away from her.

    So let’s play a game. Name Mariah’s alleged baby. My guess is “Butterfly Hello Kitty Carey Cannon”.

  2. Feebee says:

    Yes taking a sip of champagne (or not) is the ultimate test for pregnancy. Mariah has the voice but not the verbal skills, she should have just had the sip and for Ellen it’d be case closed. But that wouldn’t serve feeding the machine.

  3. Nova says:

    The way she dodged Ellen like that…I would say that she IS pregnant. For her to say its too early to drink…I’ve seen pictures of her out during the day shopping and drinking champagne. She is full of it! lol

  4. what is ever. says:

    Nick Cannon is the new K-Fed. I’m also pretty sure that that’s the closest he’s been to any kind of (positive) award.

    In her defense about the microphone thing – thats not so crazy. People doing sound checks on it and handling it, you dont know what bacteria is on it, and if you’re singing and it touches your lips, then you lick your lips, you could (possibly) get a cold, a flu, a bacterial infection which could hamper singing. And Since TBH her voice is the only thing Mimi has going for her, its sane to wanna protect that asset. As for being pregs.. SHE TOTALLY IS.

  6. Lauri says:

    Whether she is or not, perhaps she wants to make any announcements her OWN way, rather than when some talk show host tries to bully her. It was obvious that she had no intention of announcing anything, so Ellen was out of line to keep harrassing her.

    If I were MC, I would never go on her show again. There is entertainment, and then there is harrassment. She crossed the line this time.

  7. Jeane says:

    Why didn’t she just drink the champagne? A few sips won’t kill your baby.
    It seems to me she is either playing up the rumour, or she will become one of those horribly annoying pregnant women who won’t have cheese, sushi, red meat or sex because it could “harm the baby”.

  8. Obvious says:

    am i the only one who thinkins “mimi” should just go die in a corner somewhere? she drives me up the wall. and he voice is nauseating.

  9. Cinderella says:

    I know this is awful to say, but I can’t imagine her being a loving mother. She only loves Mariah. A baby will cramp her style.

  10. jess says:

    ellen cracks me up. people know that by going on her show, she is gonna push them to answer tabloid questions…but its also gonna be a ton of fun.

  11. nycmom100.. says:

    I love her voice, but only own her early cd’s. But just wanted to add I guess I was one of the annoying pg woman. Only had one small glass of red in my 7th month,no sushi, no soft cheeses, no caffine etc. It just didn’t seem worth the risk to me. Just my opinion, others are free to take whatever risk they feel comfotable with.

  12. Cari says:

    Kaiser, hands down, you win the name guessing game. It couldn’t possible be anything else! 😆

  13. tigerlilly85 says:

    Hey,Kaiser Roll,if you have children then you should know you don’t tell anyone about being pregnant until the first trimester is over,that way if any problems arise(like miscarrage)then you dont have to relive the suffering when people try to share in the terminated joy.And if the woman is prissy enough to sterilize her microphone,than she will make sure the baby bottles are sterilized,too!
