    Mariah Carey talks baby weight

    Mariah Carey is showed off her post baby body on Rosie O’Donnell’s new talk show.

    The new mom has dropped 30 pounds on Jenny Craig, which she is now representing as the new brand ambassador. Mariah revealed to Rosie, though, that she has actually lost about 70 pounds. 

    "In the beginning, when I first had babies, I had so much edema, which for people that don’t know is water and swelling. Most pregnant woman have that just in their feet," she said. "One day I was doing my thank-you notes and I noticed it started rising up the leg, so I had edema. … I didn’t think I would ever be the same person."

    Once the babies came, Mariah admitted that she dropped an incredible amount of water weight even though she couldn’t exercise since her twins with Nick Cannon were delivered by C-section.

    "The first week, I lost 40 pounds … of just water," she said. "When I started with the program, I lost at least 30 pounds of weight that needed to be lost."

    Kim Kardashian hooked up with Kanye West?

    According to Amber Rose, Kim Kardashian may have been involved with her former flame, Kanye West.

    During the first season of "Kourtney & Kim Take New York," E! cameras caught Kanye visiting the sisters’ new shop. That led many to wonder whether Kanye and Kim were hooking up.

    Wendy Williams went to the rapper’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose for the goods, but she played coy. "I mean, come on, like, you know," Amber told Wendy yesterday. "Come on! We’ll keep it cute."

    And what about Amber’s own romance with Kim’s ex Reggie Bush? According to Amber, they were each other’s rebounds.

    "One thing about me is that I’m not a homewrecker. I would never date a man in a relationship or a married man. I just wouldn’t do it,” Amber insisted. "I broke up with Kanye and [Reggie] broke up with Kim and we met right after and we were both going through a hard time. ”

    Jackie Christie defends ‘First Lady’ comment

    Jackie Christie has caught some flack for, among other things, referring to herself as the "First Lady of the NBA."

    However, when she spoke to VH1 recently, she didn’t backpedal at all. She stood by her claim.

    “That’s how I felt at that time, meeting all the girls and what they were there for and me trying to mentor them and what I’ve done with Doug. I’ve paid my dues, I’ve taken hits from people all over the world not understanding us, and I definitely feel like because I paid those dues, what I represent for the NBA is family, structure, stability, and that’s the way I’m looking at it. Not as ’Oh, I’m better than this person or that person.’”

    Jackie’s “Basketball Wives: LA” co-star, Gloria Govan, doesn’t exactly agree.

    “I think that that comment is disrespectful to the real women of the NBA like Cookie Johnson and Juanita Jordan. Women whose men had been such a staple in the NBA and their wives have been around for years. Well before Doug. Don’t get me wrong, Doug was a great player, but for Jackie to refer to herself as the First Lady is silly. She may be the first ‘crazy’ lady. She definitely set the bar for overbearing wife.”
