Celebrities aren’t like you and me, they are rich and they are famous. But they can share one thing with us mortals – infertility.
Mariah Carey, 42, and her husband, Nick Cannon, spoke about their struggles with infertility in an interview with Us Weekly in November 2010. In 2008, the Maruah suffered a devastating miscarriage shortly after getting married, and as a result began taking progesterone, a hormone often prescribed to boost fertility and/or to support or maintain pregnancy in women susceptible to miscarriage.

We all know of the standard insurance policies which cover our day to day lives. We’re constantly exposed to TV adverts of a window cleaner falling from an unstable ladder or an innocent victim receiving whiplash courtesy of a reckless driver. However there is also a world that we’re not exposed to. A world so bizarre that it’s like the twilight zone of insurance claims. It’s incomprehensible to us normal folk as to why these policies exist but it goes that step further to ensuring that our A-list stars are held in a regard on an almost immortal level. But, when it comes down to it, even they realise that we’re all human and so they’ve taken every necessary step to ensure that their vulnerable bodies and lives are protected against the glitz, glamour and pitfalls of a celebrity lifestyle. No win no fee solicitors have truly got their work cut out with this bunch!

Dr. Cindy Bressler, the former veterinarian for Mariah Carey is suing her famous pop client for $38,000, claiming Carey ran up the monumental tab while Bressler was carrying 24/7 for Carey’s pups. She says she even delivered one of the pop star dogs babies.
Dr. Bressler filed the lawsuit today in Manhattan in which she states that she provided “extraordinary services” for three of Mariah’s Jack Russell terriers. According to Bressler, Mariah only paid her $8,000 of the $38,000 bill.
Remember when she had a penchant for butterflies, rainbows, and all things pink and purple? Now it’s all about angels for Mariah Carey.
The 13-year-old is forever in Mariah Carey. She’s always about butterflies, purple and pink, teenybopper ensembles, and princess-y clothes.
In last Thursday’s concert at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, the 40-year-old singer came out on a swing wearing a ruffled princess dress, reminiscent of those sweet sixteen parties on MTV.
It’s no wonder director Lee Daniels nicknamed her Princess Tippytoes. According to Wenn, Lee’s first meeting with Mariah gave him an unforgettable impression of her. “Mariah was born as an embryo in stiletto heels,” he joked. “She walks—even in her home—on her f**king toenails! I said, ‘This woman is not going to work if you’re walking like Princess Tippy Toes.’”
Smart comeback. After people poked fun at her apparent drunken acceptance speech at the Palm Springs International Festival, Mariah Carey announced the launch of her own special champagne, Angel Champagne by MC.
The singer blames her loopy speech on having too much champagne on an empty stomach that night. “[sic] Didn’t realize they put the champagne on the tables, So we WOULDN’T drink it! LoL. No, seriously ANGEL CHAMPAGNE (ROSE) by MC coming soon!” she tweeted last week.
This is Mariah’s second wine creation. Mariah Zinfandel was launched in 2006, after she invested in the Mariah Vineyard Zinfandel, a winery in Mendocino County, California. Angel Campagne by MC will hit stores towards the end of 2010. Cheers!
…at the recent Palm Springs International Festival is described by many as, well, drunken. See for yourself:
She won the Best Breakthrough Artist Award for her role as Ms. Weiss, a welfare caseworker in the urban drama Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire.
As presenter and Precious director Lee Daniels escorted her to the stage, she greeted him with a dance and a hug, after which she stumbled throughout her speech. “I have to say this is—and please forgive me because I’m a little bit, um… yeah. Oh my goodness,” she rambled in the beginning of her speech.
She tried to get to back to planet earth by talking about the people who made the movie possible, but she suddenly burst into an applause as she praised the director’s work.
I would love to focus on Mariah’s acting skills in Precious, which is a huge improvement from her Glitter days, but the video of her acceptance speech is just, well, precious. We still love you, Mariah!

It’s the Year of the Tiger, according to Chinese astrology. “Rawr,” I say! We spied on Hollywood’s party animals to see how they unleashed their inner tigers (and tigresses) on New Year’s Eve.
According to Kate Garraway of London’s Good Morning Television, that is. She details Mariah’s demands during a recent interview. First, the singer supposedly arrived with a HUGE entourage. Next, she wanted them to lower the sofa so her dress wouldn’t get crushed. She also brought her own toilet paper. That’s normal, isn’t it?
