Mariah Carey was essentially evicted from the final cut of recent flop The House after her diva antics caused a “shit storm” on set.
That’s the term Will Ferrell used with Bravo host Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, while co-star Cedric Yarbrough chose “unprofessional” and “borderline abusive to our director” on Facebook. (Among the alleged challenges of working with Carey: She reportedly showed up four hours late, refused to sing the song that had been cleared and requested that her character deflect bullets like Wonder Woman.)
House director Andrew Jay Cohen didn’t speak poorly of Mimi to THR, gushing, “I love Mariah Carey,” before discussing her music: “I liked her early stuff but then she got bad with the third album.”
Nick Kroll, who co-stars opposite Ferrell and Amy Poehler, joked: “[Carey] and I have an ongoing feud about who is the bigger diva. We can both hit high notes, married Nick Cannon and requested to be sent stuffed animal lambs to our trailers on set.”
But with the film grossing $24 million worldwide, Carey may be having the last laugh.
