Mimi’s gone wild!
This has got to be the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard after the whole Anna Nicole paternity extravaganza.

"Just say the lines and don’t trip over the furniture," advised Noel Coward. One of my favorites has done it again! Outsmarted the people who are supposed to be "in charge." The very funny Mariah Carey, who signs her notes to me "The Diva Next Door," is down in Tennessee, appearing in a movie about two brothers on a road trip in search of their estranged dad. Mariah learned a Southern accent for "Tennessee," the movie that includes Bernie Mac, James D’Arcy, Bill Sage, Chris Browning, Luce Rains and Gregory Peck’s grandson, Ethan Peck & more. The director is Aaron Woodley, and the producer is my good friend Lee Daniels, who did such a masterful job helping Halle Berry win the Oscar for "Monster’s Ball." This movie is being made "on a shoestring," so Mariah was asked to fly down to location in economy class. Those who knew her just about fainted, saying, "She’ll never do that!"
Mariah had the last laugh.
She did it.
She bought out every seat in economy and flew alone in the economy cabin.
