American Idol Insiders Reveal New Judge Mariah Carey Was A "Nightmare" During Her Stint As Mentor In 2008!

| Filed under: Mariah CareyAmerican IdolReality TV


Well, hey!

Sometimes the diva needs what she needs!

Mariah Carey may be making a whopping $18M to appear as a judge for the next season of American Idol, but according to show insiders who worked with the singer when she appeared as a guest mentor in the show's seventh season, that's about the amount they deserve for having to put up with her!

That's right, sources reveal that Mimi was not only a "nightmare to work with," but she showed up insanely late, was nit-picky about tiny details, and just "not very nice at all."

In contrast, former judge - and fellow diva - Jennifer Lopez was praised as a consummate professional who never made a fuss or outrageous demands!

Perhaps she was having a bad day last time around!

And she's a mom now! We're sure she's realized there's no time to be fussy or nitpicky when you have two of them to care for yourself!

    How is this old lady relevant? Im not watching it anymore. They could have gotten somebody cool, instead they got some tired spoiled cliche relic.

    What do you expect from a RAGING ALCOHOLIC DIVA BITCH?

    This should be interesting, she's an alcoholic with the communication skills of a 10 year old on a live television show…It has train wreck written all over it :) ….

    I love Mariah! She may be a diva, but Jlo just has a VERY good camp then conceals all the diva stories. Jlo is NO picnic either! :)

  5. 5

    I guess Maria's camp isn't paying you, huh Perez? But Jlo is still giving you a paycheck to keep the "nice" stories of her going along :)

    Stop spreading the Hate Perez :)

    She is the new Paula Abdul. Let the cray cray begin.

    Mariah a bitch? Who knew! I'm sure being a Mom has not changed her behavior. How does it feel to be paid less then your rival Jlo? Nick Cannon was right. Once a celebrity of her stature has to take a judging position on a reality TV gig your career is over.

    Mariah's all used up; she'll be pulling a Whitney soon…

    Doesn't she have nightmares? I would have thought so from the way she warble in that thin sharp screechy voice when she sings.

    I would take these rumours with a pinch of salt. It doesn't seem very legit, considering her stint on AI was a good four years ago.
