Might Mariah Carey join husband Nick Cannon in the reality show spotlight?
Sources say Mariah is in serious talks to join The X-Factor this fall as a mentor to contestants, with one mole telling Entertainment Weekly there's a decent chance to comes on board later in the season.
“Mariah and Simon are great friends, and now [that] she has had her babies, it’s very possible that she will be involved," the insider said. "She has always said she wanted to work with the show, so it’s something they will certainly be discussing ideas for soon.”
Cowell, as is his way, was far more blunt: this IS happening.
“She’ll be involved in some form," he said. "I literally adore her. I love her to bits.”
The X-Factor premieres on Fox on September 21 and will feature Nicole Scherzinger, L.A. Reid and Paula Abdul as judges. Look for a sneak peek at the competition to air during the MLB All-Star Game on July 12.
