Mariah Carey will get a whole lot of flak for the nursery she just added to her Beverly Hills home for $1.3 million. There is no doubt, it's posh in the extreme.
Carey, 40, and her husband Nick Cannon, 30, are due with their twins in March, and the new nursery will feature amenities even a royal baby might not receive. Carey put 18-carat gold trim on the ivory walls. She filled the room with soft furnishings and walk-in wardrobes full of Petit Trésor designer clothes. There is also a first-class sound system and both children have diamond-encrusted iPods and a flat-screen TV that comes down from the ceiling.
Extravagant? Yes. But then, she always has been. She has waited years to have her babies and even though it's wasteful, she has the money. I have to say, I would probably do the same thing. Who wouldn't? Here are a couple of the items she bought:
Chelsea Sleigh Cribs: $1,500 each.
Glam Glider Rocker: $1,900 each.
It's easy to say it's a waste of money and certainly, it is. But the fact is, most of us would do the same thing if we could. With all that money, why shouldn't she go all out? Especially now when the babies are so young. If this continues their whole life, maybe they will be spoiled, but right now? There is no such thing as spoiling. This is all about Mariah and her husband and their fun and enjoyment.
Usually, I judge spending superfluous amounts of money, but in this case, I say why not. Mariah Carey has loads of cash; she has waited a long time. She knows what it means to be poor and she is no longer. I say go all out!
What do you think of this nursery?
