Mariah Carey was ready to tell Ellen Degeneres “Bye Bye” after the Daytime host allegedly cornered the star over pregnancy rumors. According to E! Ellen pretended to let the “Stay In Love” singer off the hook after she denied the pregnancy rumors only to offer the singer a glass of champagne. “Let’s just toast with champagne,” Ellen offered. According to sources at the taping, Mariah became flustered, insisting that 3 p.m. was too early for her to start drinking. “I can’t believe you did this to me, Ellen,” laughed the Grammy winner, who married Nick Cannon in April. “This is peer pressure!” she continued, trying to avoiding drinking the champagne. “No, let’s toast to you not being pregnant,” Ellen insisted. “Why would we toast to that?,” Mariah replied. “How about to the future? For both of our futures, who knows what they hold.” According to E!, Mariah then pretended to sip the bubbly only to be caught by Ellen who said “You’re pregnant.” In related news, Mariah Carey may be up for an Oscar for “Right To Dream,” a cut from her upcoming film “Tennessee”. Several outlets are speculating a first time nod for the singer who had a bad run of luck with “Glitter” in 2001.
