After years of people saying her marriage to Nick Cannon was a sham, Mariah Carey is probably happy she can prove them wrong by pointing the finger to someone else. Like, for instance, Kim Kardashian.
To those unacquainted with the drama, a brief introduction: Kim Kardashian married Kris Humphries in August and reportedly made a fortune; she's now divorcing him and people are left wondering whether it wasn't just a TV stunt meant to make her even richer.
Mariah Carey would seem inclined to believe that this is the case.
The newly-slimmed down singer, now a spokesperson for Jenny, the weight loss program that helped her shift her pregnancy weight, attended a press event to unveil her amazing new figure.
At one point during the press call, she was asked about her marriage to Nick and how they defied all those who said they wouldn't last, by being happy and even starting a family, Us Weekly informs.
It was then that Mariah took a not-so-veiled swing at the curvy reality star.
“'I'm a real person, I'm not going to put on a fake face for Hollywood,' Carey told the crowd as she dished on her marriage to hubby Nick Cannon, with whom she shares six-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe,” Us writes.
She went on to say that, unlike marriages that didn't last more than 4 months, her and Nick's is solid because it's real.
“Sometimes we make each other mad, that's why we aren't divorced after four months,” were Mariah's exact words.
“The crowd audibly gasped after that remark. The most notorious quickie divorce these days, of course, is 31-year-old Kardashian, who filed Oct. 31 after just 72 days of matrimony with Kris Humphries,” Us writes.
Realizing probably what she'd said, the diva reportedly tried to mend things by offering half an apology. “I'm sorry, I'm just saying,” she told the crowd.
While it's not nice (to put it mildly) to make fun of someone who's going through something as hard as a divorce, most voices online seem to agree with Mariah for calling a spade a spade.
Kim Kardashian can say all she wants, but the overall impression remains that she faked her marriage to make money off the wedding and, of course, her reality show.
The only one who probably didn't deserve this was Kris Humphries, of whom people say he didn't know what he was getting into – while Mariah comes across as a “realer” celebrity for saying what's on her mind.
Assuming Mariah was really dissing Kim Kardashian in that comment, drop us a line to tell us what you think of it: is Kim fair game now that she's sold her entire life to E!, including her wedding, or was Mariah just a bit out of line?
