So much for husband Nick Cannon stating "American Idol cannot afford Mariah Carey" as she just signed on to be the next judge on the show for $18 million dollars.

The deal is for one year and was made today at the TV Critics Association Summer Press tour in Beverly Hills.

Depending on if Randy Jackson stays, they still have at least one judge's chair to fill.

The rumor that Adam Lambert will fill that seat is still in effect.

Mariah just released this statement via twitter and facebook: "It's gonna be so much fun working on American Idol. As a singer-songwriter, I'm excited to help find and nurture new talent. LYM!" --MC

So was signing Mariah Carey to Idol a good move for the show to keep it alive?-DocFB

It must be nice to have the wedding you want and have a cable network pick up the bill for it and also make $18 million on your wedding day as well.  If you haven't heard, reality star Kim Kardashian married basketball player Kris Humphries this weekend in a very lavish and celeb attended wedding.

They were trying to keep Kim's wedding dress under wraps the day of but E! released video of it the day after and People Magazine will have Kim as their covergirl for the September 5th issue.

We knew a few friends who attended and everyone knew where the wedding was because it was all being filmed for E! for a 2 part wedding special that will air in 2 parts in early October.

I must say, Kim did look very pretty..and from the video you can see that Kris is very nervous.  I think I might be heaving on my wedding day.-Dr.FB
