Here are some exclusive snaps from Mariah Carey’s rehearsal at the Palms in Las Vegas. She’s doing shows there at the end of this week, and then two in October. Her “Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel” CD launches on September 29th.

Mariah finishes her Saturday night now, then flies directly to Toronto this coming Sunday morning. The big “Precious” premiere is on Sunday at the Toronto Film Festival, with Oprah hosting, and the “Precious” cast taking bows. Mariah is sensational as Mrs. Weiss, the social worker who tries to bring together the two main characters.

As I’ve told you, Mo’Nique will be the first Oscar nominee ever ‘ Best Supporting Actress ‘ with an apostrophe in her name.

For Carey, “Precious” finally shows off her acting side. All bad memories of previous adventures on film are wiped out.

This Tuesday brings the release of Mariah’s cover of the Foreigner classic, “I Want to Know What Love Is” with a full gospel choir. Can’t wait to see that live!
