Thank you, Mariah Carey. Not only have you managed to keep us fascinated after all these years (I mean you named your kids Moroccan and Monroe, for goodness sakes) but you’ve come to our rescue in a time of need. You see, we have been inundated with Kim Kardashian over the past few days, what with her divorce from Kris Humphries, her divorce tour in which she talks about her divorce from Kris Humphries, and her eventual reunion with Kris Humphries. It’s exhausting to keep track of, and quite frankly, we’re tired of it. We’re not saying Jessica Simpson didn’t help wean us off our Kardashian konsumption with her pregnancy announcement, but that didn’t come as a big surprise. We needed something else, something unexpected.

So imagine our complete and utter joy when you — dear, reliable Mariah Carey — became the new spokesperson for Jenny and made an appearance on The Rosie Show on Tuesday. Not only did you show up to chat with Rosie looking svelte as ever post-twins, but you divulged all the details, including how 40 of the 70 pounds you lost was water weight. Better yet, you shared with your fans, honestly and refreshingly, about what pregnancy was really like for you. “I had a really tough pregnancy,” you told Rosie, “I was supposed to be on bed rest, but it was so bad that even bed hurt. I learned a lot being pregnant, watching my body change.” Top that, Kim Kardashian. (Better yet, please, for all that is good, don’t.)

Are you thankful Mariah Carey has given us a pleasant distraction, too, PopWatchers? What did you think of her Rosie Show appearance or her Jenny commercial? (Which you can watch below.) Share in the comments section!
