Mariah Carey Says Her Kids Should Have Their Own Reality Show: ‘They’re Hilarious’

Mariah Carey‘s twins are two tiny stars in the making.

When the diva’s new reality show, Mariah’s World, debuts in December, the singer’s 5-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, will also get some screen time.

“They can have their own show because that’s how funny they are,” the proud mom, 46, told reporters at a TCA panel promoting the E! show.

Though dad Nick Cannon has been “very supportive” of their children being featured on the show, the former couple is still figuring out “mutually” how big a role they will play.

“The truth is, they jump on the stage when they can,” says Carey. “The answer is we’re still in the process of putting everything together.”

And though they’re still toddlers, Carey says her kids have already seen more of the world than most adults.

“I try to have them do as many activities that they can that aren’t just like, the iPad,” she says. “I spend time with them. We travel together. I take them to different places. They love traveling.”

Despite her hectic schedule, however, the singer also tries to keep their schedule as “consistent” as possible — and they already take after Mom.

Says the star: “Yesterday, my son was being the deejay. Miss Monroe has a really, really good ear for music and a really beautiful tone, but I can’t force her to sing, so if she wants to sing, she’ll sing. I encourage her because it’s a great outlet.”

Why does she have her left hand always up her hair in every picture? So she can show off her ring? It’s crazy how superficial she is. Just very odd and sad, actually.

what any Pimp Mom-ager would say when trying to slore her offspring for $$ so she can cash in on them before they turn 18-and pleasssse hooker-your kids are jumping around and being kids and you are literally shoving out your veiny udders into the camera in front of them-thats just gross-MeMe the annoying whale obviously has no clue what it really means to sacrifice for your offspring-it’s all about what they can do for her-like her lame TV show–no kids no show-what does Nick say about her profiteering on his offspring? or does he just want his cut

I don’t see why Nick gets rave reviews from anyone where his former marriage is concerned. He cheated publicly, got on Stern’s “classy” radio show, and made a total idiot out of himself bragging about who he had slept with…he’s lucky Mariah didn’t knock him in the head! As far as the children are concerned, he doesn’t seem interested in custody, and is just fine with them being with Mariah, who seems to be doing just fine by her children. As for her being a “whale”…no, she is NOT. She has lost all the weight she needs to, she looks great, has talent, and has made enough money to enjoy life, so no need for insults; she’s doing fine for herself and her very cute children! Sheesh….sine if you need to fix your own house, and stop being so critical of others.

She’s an amazing mom! It’s beautiful to see her still doing what she loves while raising twins.

Dont try to profit off your kids Mimi. Let them have some privacy you are a rich woman, let your children have peace and privacy and hide your damn boobs.
