Like many of you, I’m sure, I just tuned in to tonight’s episode of 20/20 on ABC hoping to catch a glance at #dembabies (AKA Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s 6-month old never before seen twins Moroccan and Monroe). Yes, the world did get to see those adorable (and chic!) little babies, but it’s what we witnessed before that moment that has me scratching and shaking my head.
Barbara Walters asked Mariah Carey if she trusts her husband Nick. Her immediate response: “Sometimes”. Both Barbara and Nick seemed perplexed by her answer, as was I as I sat watching from my bed at home. Nick’s response? “Sometimes!?” Mariah then says, “Do you think I should trust you?” Nick, says, “Of course.” Mariah goes: “Okay than I trust you.” Seriously, Mariah?!? When Barbara asked her why she felt that way, all she could come up with to cover her foolishly reckless and disrespectful comments about her clearly devoted husband was, “Come on Barbara, he’s a man. Let’s call it what it is.” Again, I say, “Really, Mariah?!” Wow….I’m speechless…really dumbfounded.
There are SO many women in the world who’d give anything to have a husband that adores them and tolerates their over-the-top diva-like behavior, and Mariah is lucky enough to have one who has adored her since he was a teenager watching her videos and she can’t even be bothered to pretend to like him on 20/20? I will always love Mariah as an artist, but every time I look she’s failing majorly as a wife. I doubt Nick would ever leave her, but I have to ask, doesn’t he deserve better? He should see that he does. You couldn’t pay me to go there. I love my husband too much to question his love for me and trustworthiness, period, and certainly not in front of others. Case closed!
UPDATE: Here’s exactly how the convo went down. (I found a transcription.)
Barbara: “Do you trust him?”
“Sometimes,” Mariah said.
“Sometimes?” Nick asked.
“Alright, can I trust you more than sometimes?” Mariah asked. “You tell me.”
“Absolutely,” Nick replied.
When Barbara asked if they are happy together?
“We are,” she said. “Especially when he’s nice. When he’s nice, he’s the best guy in the world.”
“Yeah, you know. He’s a man, Barbara,” Mariah said. “Let’s call it what it is.”
There you have it folks..blatant disrespect. If she feels that way, fine. Just say it to Nick behind closed doors in your home…not on 20/20.
