This could be a taste of what “American Idol” producers have to look forward to. Mariah Carey was appearing at a charity event for Russell Simmons at his home in East Hampton Saturday. But Mariah wasn’t really happy with the way she was looking that night and didn’t want any camera closeups on her face. So when it was time for her to appear on stage, she insisted that all the big screens be switched off. So who would want to sit next to this diva on the “Idol” judges panel? Not Toby Keith. He reportedly turned down the offer and now producers are talking to Brad Paisley. We hear they’re also talking to Nick Jonas and Pharrell Williams about filling that third seat.
Robert Pattinson moved out of the house he shared with Kristen Stewart and kicked her out, too. And Robert told her that she could take the cat, but the dog stays with him. These two adopted the dog they named Bear from a high-kill shelter in New Orleans and Kristen nursed Bear through a nasty battle with parvo. But Robert says since Kristen’s the one who cheated, he gets to decide where Bear goes. Kristen is hoping he’ll agree to joint custody. We shall see. Meantime, both Kristen and this director Rupert Sanders are saying they just kissed and fooled around for 5 or 6 months but they never went all the way. Robert’s not buying it for a second, but Rupert’s wife might be. He was photographed walking around LA yesterday and he was wearing his wedding ring………..
