    Actor Tim Curry (Rocky Horror Picture Show) has suffered a major stroke. The 67 year-old actor is said to be recovering nicely. I hope he makes a swift recovery and suffers no paralysis or speech problems, like Kirk Douglas.

    Was I the only one who saw Mariah Carey on the GMA concert in Central Park this morning?? This appearance was a hot mess, to say the least. I do love Mariah's voice and think she is a beautiful woman, but maybe she should stay in the studio. Although I don't want to believe so, she looked like she had been out all night and had just arrived in the park moments before. She was wearing this gorgeous sprayed-on dress that she couldn't really maneuver in....she looked like a statue. She said it was a Versace. She needed somebody to help her around to any point on the stage that she wanted to get to; she kept saying "Somebody help a lady out." The dress probably should have been the next size up, because you could see every roll she had. She was, obviously, not wearing any kind of figure-control garment since you could tell that she was probably wearing a thong; Spanx would have smoothed her out tremendously. Her breasts were hanging at 2 different levels, like one side of the dress had given away. Then she said something about the back of her dress having popped open....and it looked like the zipper had given away (she showed the back); a couple of assistants arrived on the stage to work on correcting the dress malfunction, and they went to commercial. Commercial is over, and she is there with the breasts, finally, at the same level, in the same dress, but still not moving very much. She was holding her mic pack in her hand, with the cord being obvious, and she admitted to not having time to put her mic on. THIS MADE NO SENSE!!! Another commercial....she comes back in another beautiful, looser flowing pink dress; she points out that she has taken off her shoes. She sat in a huge prop chair with her dress pulled way up on her thighs, waving her bare feet around and pointing her toes, and never got up again!! She performed a duet with singer Miguel (from her seated position), from her new album; he had the majority of the song, and toward the end of the song, she had a part in her upper range, and she sounded like she had laryngitis....she was no where near as stellar as she should have been. Definitely showed that the first couple of songs were lip-synched, and this one was LIVED. I WAS FLOORED!!! I could not believe what I had just witnessed.

    She was a total mess.

    OMG! I hate that happened to Mariah, but she knows better. She wore clothes that were way too tight on AI the entire season. I have commented on the AI thread about it. I don't enjoy watching performers whose clothes are so tight they can't move and their shoes are so high, they can't walk unassisted. To me it's crazy. Still, it's too bad. She's music royality and at her age, I like to see ladies look good and impress the crowd. She has the ability.

    I was turned off when I saw her new video that premired on AI. It was not appropriate, IMO. She's not 19 anymore. I think she's freaking out or something. Her and Madonna can't seem to let it go and just be a mature woman.

    I am sure she knew her breasts would *pop out* She is on some kind of drug, she sounded confused and stupid.

    As much as I don't want to think so, it did seem "druggy". I really don't want to believe that with 2 year old twins, she would be trodding down that path. That would just be too tragic.

    As I've observed Mariah over the years, I've decided that drugs aren't her major problem (though back when she had her TRL break down I think they were involved). I think she's just a bit stupid, and not a classy woman. She's surrounded by great handlers who create an image for her, and when well prepped, she can perform the role they create. But when she's not well prepped, we get what we got this morning. I may be totally wrong but that is my theory.
