Fans of Mariah Carey are wondering what's up with the lady besides her 45-pound gain?
"She is very much in danger of passing the 200-pound milestone if she doesn't get her weight in check", stated a source this morning after Carey made a brief but enormous appearance on a morning news show.
No one interviewing her even mentioned it, at least not on the air, perhaps because she could get up, eventually, and wobble off the stage.
The formerly shapely -I know, round is a shape -Mariah has packed on more than 40-50 pounds over the past year after her marriage to Nick Cannon, say her pals, who blame a combination of stress, drinking and fast-lane living.
"Don't blame Nick", stated the source. "He's trying to get her to lose some weight too as he's very concerned about her health."
Mariah is getting rave reviews for her great acting performance as a dowdy welfare caseworker in the new movie hit, "Precious" where it took no artifiacial fat for the role, as the 5-foot-9 singer has hit her heaviest weight ever.
She has finally taken Nick's advice to get professional help, according to the source.
"That's when a doctor told her she could have Kirstie's Disease!"
