NEW YORK – Mariah Carey, Eminem and Jack Nicholson in the uplifted brow glare of The Foxlight.
When Mariah Carey checked into a hospital a little more than a year ago, she was described as having suffered a physical and emotional breakdown. Now, Carey says it was just a chance for her to catch up on some sleep. She makes the claim in her "let-me-get-it-off-my-chest, now that my album is coming out" interview with Matt Lauer. Carey says she checked in to the hospital because: "All I needed was, like, five hours' sleep." P.S. She never slept with Eminem.
And speaking of the real Slimster, stop bidding on his house if you're not going to buy it. Even though it is pretty funny. With ebay bids over $100 million, some Einstein decided they might not be legit. Guess what? The person who bid a shade under a $100 million for the place has backed out of the deal. Eminem lived at the house between 1998 and 2000.
Finally, that naked rear end shot of Jack Nicholson in About Schmidt was the actor's idea. The film also has a nude scene for Kathy Bates. That wasn't Jack's idea. Go anyway. It's a good movie.
