The paparazzi hasn’t seen or heard from Mariah Carey since her marriage to Nick Cannon, but those closest to her continue to come forward with first-hand observations about how she’s been doing since the nuptials.

She is very happy. I’ve spoken with her and she is superb. She is over the moon,” Carey’s friend, Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley, told People magazine. “I received an email from her [Monday] and she is so happy. She really sounds like someone on her honeymoon.”

Talley also gushed over Carey’s husband, stating: “I love Nick Cannon for Mariah. For Mariah, this is poetry.”


Wesley Snipes is hoping a judge will allow him to stay out of jail while he appeals his conviction and three-year prison term for failing to file income tax returns. According to papers filed in U.S. District Court in Ocala, Florida, lawyers for the actor argued that his appeal raises “substantial” questions that are likely to result in a new trial or a shorter prison sentence, and that he isn’t a danger to the community. They also argued that he’s not a danger to the community and he’s too famous to be a flight risk. The 45-year-old star of “Blade” was convicted Feb. 1 on three misdemeanor counts. U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges sentenced him April 24 to the maximum three years in prison. He was acquitted of two felony charges of conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service as well as three other misdemeanor counts of not filing taxes.


Turns out Barbara Walters’ secret affair with a black senator isn’t the only juicy part of her new book “Audition,” and it wasn’t the only bombshell from the project dropped during Tuesday’s appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” The veteran television journalist finally spoke out about what really happened during the final two years of Star Jones’ tenure as co-host of the ABC morning show “The View.” Walters, an executive producer and co-host of “The View,” confirmed previous reports that viewers began to turn away from Jones after she got engaged to Al Reynolds and began using “View” airtime to promote her wedding vendors as part of a deal to use their various services for free. As for Jones’s sudden and dramatic weight loss, Walters told Oprah: “She decided to have a gastric bypass operation, but then she decided not to tell anybody. Then we had to lie on the set everyday because she said it was portion control and Pilates. Well, we knew it wasn’t portion control and Pilates.” Winfrey agreed, stating sarcastically: “We in the audience go, that’s some damn Pilates teacher!”


Former NBA great Karl Malone – “The Mailman” – reportedly fathered a child with Gloria bell – a girl who was only 12 or 13 years old when she became pregnant. Malone was 20 years old at the time. Amazingly, the child Malone fathered is Demetrius Bell – a recent top draft pick for the Buffalo Bills football team. It appears Malone played no part in raising Demetrius. Another amazing aspect of the story is how little media attention it has gotten. Based on a scan of media reports from around the country, the Washington, D.C.-based Taylor Media Services has been able to find one broadcast outlet ( and only two newspapers which have mentioned the story – the Buffalo News and the Los Angeles Times.
