Mariah Carey’s House Looks Like Manhatten Barbie Playset

I was reading MSNBC in my feedreader when I came across the above picture of Mariah Carey in her Tribeca triplex penthouse dressing room. The article was about how nice Carey was and how the diva bit is all an act and yadda yadda yadda, but I could not get past that the dressing room looked like a Barbie playset complete with the tufted gilt lounge chair and 30 pairs of plastic high heels (sold in the MBP accessory pack which also includes bottle of water and cell phone, faux gold of course).

Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    I really hate chandeliers. I just don’t get why American celebs love them so much.

    Makes me cringe. I’m more dark woods and dark colors.

    She’s got the cash to afford a triplex in Manhattan, but she can’t afford a shoe tree or other shoe storage container? Really?

    Sorry, that was bitchy of me, wasn’t it?
