Mariah Gets Personal With TV Viewers….Too Personal
Mariah Carey's fans got to see more of
their idol than they expected
during a recent TV interview in Minneapolis. Mariah wore a really,
really short skirt when she appeared on NBC affiliate KARE-TV. She and
the guy interviewing her were perched up high on director's chairs and
Mariah kept trying to pull the skirt down. Well, all that squirming
around in the chair didn't get the skirt any lower, but it did reveal
that Mariah wasn't wearing any panties! Folks got a quick peek at her
kitty cat! Eventually, the producers threw a coat over Mariah's lap.
Mariah just smiled and said she'd have to be more careful in the future.

to a field sobriety test, but fell down and laughed while trying to
stand on one leg and count to ten. In another test, Ross skipped some
letters and doubled others when asked to write the alphabet. Breath
tests showed Ross's blood-alcohol level of at least 0.20 percent, more
than twice Arizona's legal limit of 0.08.
The 58-year-old singer was cited on three misdemeanor counts related to
driving under the influence, and has a January 13 court date.
A spokesperson for Ross said there was no comment being given on the
singer's arrest at this time.
