Nick Cannon Gets 'High-Heel Queen' Mariah Carey to Wear Flats!

Picture Perfect

Mariah Carey is likely to have some aching feet as her pregnancy progresses, and her husband isn’t going to let her suffer –- even if it means he has to be her personal shopper. Nick Cannon described a mini battle the pair had the day before, admitting to being flabbergasted by his wife’s shoe collection. “I come home yesterday to help my wife get ready for her video shoots and she has these 19-inch heels on,” he grumbled good-naturedly on a phone call with his wife, who called into his 92.3 WXRM-FM radio show “Rollin with Nick Cannon” on Friday. Carey defended herself, explaining the heels were only for a job. But, Cannon continued, “So I go into the closet searching for some flats for my wife … She got a lot of damn shoes — it’s like a frickin’ Macy’s. [And] Mariah Carey does not own one pair of flat shoes.” Carey corrects him, “To be fair, I had some boots from Aspen, some Dior boots.” “Ski boots!” Cannon argues. Carey says, “And then we did find some flats and then they were a regular ballet slipper, like a beige, and I was like, ‘I don’t think so.'” Cannon says he finally got her to wear flats -– in the form of ski boots. “Basically, I got Mariah Carey, the high-heel queen, to put on some flats. And this is amazing. I’m going shoe shopping today, needless to say, to buy you some flat shoes.” Carey seemed charmed by the idea, but it remains to be seen if the glam singer — who even travels with only heels in her suitcase — will actually be out and about in flats anytime soon. — Sara Hammel

Sorry to hear Eddie Cibrian’s Ex, Brandi Glanville, was arrested for DUI, and I’m glad The Student, who was involved with Tyler Clementi’s Suicide, dropped out of Rutgers University!

I’m glad they both actually dropped out!

They are the same height in this pic, i’d love to see a pic of them together and her NOT in heels, just to see how much taller he is than she. How tall is she, by the way, anyone know?

If she has a baby girl, I bet her shoe closet will be huge by the time the baby is even 1! :o)

Not surprised he’s going shoe shopping for her. He’s never taken on the form of “husband” to me…in all the pics I’ve seen, he always looks like her waiter, her doorman, her helper. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for chivalry, however, there’s just something “extra” about them. And why does he always refer to her as “my wife”? We know who “your wife” is, and she DOES have a name! Just eww!!!

Nia, Jealous much? I think it’s sweet how he treats her. Most women spend their entire life searching for that kind of man. I think Mariah is a lucky gal! Sending them both the best wishes for a happy healhty family.

Please dont make this one of those celeb pregnancy cough Angelina Jolie cough were we are given every minute detail of her pregnancy. She is NOT the first woman in the creation of man to have a baby.

Wow Nia, have you never talked to a man with a pregnant wife? They often get protective and spoiling, it makes them feel more involved in the pregnancy. I’m coming on nine months and ‘my husband’ often teases about hiding my heels and how he need to get this or that for me.

Wives often will take care of their husbands, but it is weird that some husbands prefer to do that for their wives?

It kills me when I see celebs wearing heels, especially when they are in the last trimester. Really? Do yourself a favor and get some comfy shoes!! Do they ever think about what would happen if they fell in those heels? Pregnancy causes some balance issues, you know…
Best of luck to them, anyway!
