Mariah’s Meltdown
Mariah Carey

Three months after giving birth to her twins Monroe and Morocco, Mariah Carey appears to be struggling to get to grips with motherhood after stumbling her way through a live TV broadcast, complaining about giving birth and slurring her sentences leading many to worry she is on the brink of a meltdown.

The singer was invited onto the Home Shopping Network to help sell her jewellery range, however rather than promote her line of products she interrupted the show’s TV presenters, and listeners calling in to buy products, with stories of her painful and uncomfortable pregnancy.

A source said, “Rather than explaining the bits of tat she was flogging, Mariah used the presenter and the callers as an opportunity to moan about her troubles. Among other things, she said, ‘Honey it was bleak for me. I was so uncomfortable back then. Everyone was always saying to me, ‘Oh but it’s all worth it’. And I was like, ‘Yeah well it’s easy for you to say when you’re not the one whose feet are this big’.”

And it seems Mariah is desperate not to lose her freedom from her pre-children days, seemingly refusing to give up her partying lifestyle with a source spilling she recently splashed a fortune on a bar tab during a recent girls night out in New York. And maintaining her diva reputation it’s rumoured she demanded her beverages to be delivered to her in the ladies bathroom. A source said, “Aside from being fanned by a male assistant for most of the night, Mariah reportedly [spent]  $1,600 (Dhs5,760)and had [her order] delivered to the ladies toilet.” No wonder she’s told Simon Cowell she wants to be “the judge of the judges”. She’ll need the money after racking up a giant bill like that!
