Mariah Carey finds her New Year's tea, takes Twitter by storm

Mariah Carey got another chance to perform during “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest” after bombing last year, but she didn’t just slay her performances — she became an internet sensation in the process, and it was all thanks to her love of tea.

>> PHOTOS: New Year's celebrations around the world

At Sunday evening’s event, after she had finished performing her first song, Carey noticed that there was no tea on hand to warm her up in the tundra-esque New York climate.

“I was told there would be tea. Oh, it’s a disaster!” she told the audience. “OK, well, we’ll just have to rough it. I’m gonna be like everybody else with no hot tea.”

Given Carey's diva reputation, the request was fairly mundane. But social media users had plenty to say:

But of course, Carey always gets her own way, and in the end, she found her tea.

The pop icon announced the news that she would be performing at the televised celebration in a joint statement with Dick Clark Productions, saying, “We can all agree that last year didn’t go exactly as planned and we are thrilled to move forward together to provide America with an incredible night of music and celebration on ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018.’ See you in Times Square!”

In a public spat, the singer blamed her disastrous performance last year on ear piece issues and later accused the production company of purposely attempting to sabotage her. Dick Clark Productions denied involvement in Carey’s meltdown in a statement:

"In very rare instances there are of course technical errors that can occur with live television, however, an initial investigation has indicated that Dick Clark Productions had no involvement in the challenges associated with Ms. Carey’s ‘New Year’s Eve’ performance. We want to be clear that we have the utmost respect for Ms. Carey as an artist and acknowledge her tremendous accomplishments in the industry."

“It is difficult to perform in Times Square,” Seacrest followed up on his "On Air With Ryan Seacrest" radio show last January, “[Carey] knows what Times Square is about. It’s complicated. Imagine every single TV outlet in the world was there. So, there’s all kinds of technical things going on."

Fans irked when 'Wheel of Fortune' contestant buys useless vowel

“Wheel of Fortune” isn’t usually a game show that incites outrage, but Wednesday night’s contestant did just that.

>> Read more trending news

Lisa riled viewers when she bought a pointless vowel while nearly having the entire phrase solved.

Kristopher R. (@cheesehead1976) pointed out that the answer to Lisa’s puzzle was clearly, “Pepperoni Pineapple Pizza.” Although she was only missing an “O” in pepperoni and two “Z’s,” Lisa still chose to blow $250 buying the vowel “O.” With her unnecessary vowel, she immediately solved the puzzle, infuriating audiences everywhere.

Another user called her out for wasting money on the spin, tweeting, “I hate when contestants buy vowels after their first spin.”

To top off the frustrating episode, a series of bankruptcies from the other contestants led to Lisa securing an unexpected victory. In the end, she went home with a car, but not without making herself unpopular in the eyes of viewers for her terrible move.

Blessing died Nov. 14 at his home in Chatsworth, California, according to the entertainment news site.

The actor joined the cast of the hit ABC drama “Moonlighting” in its third season. He played a character named MacGillicuddy who worked at the Blue Moon Detective Agency run by Maddie Hayes (Cybill Shepherd) and David Addison (Bruce Willis). His character had an office rivalry with Curtis Armstrong’s Herbert.

Blessing played Mr. Donner, an unbalanced building manager, in the sitcom “The Naked Truth” from 1995 to 1998.

More recently, Blessing portrayed Jack Powers on the ABC sitcom “George Lopez,” which ran from 2002 to 2007. Powers and his brother Mel (Mark Tymchyshyn) owned Powers Aviation, the business that employed George Lopez’s titular character.

­In addition to his extensive TV resume, Blessing also voice acted for characters in “Antz” (1998), “Open Season” (2006), “Bee Movie” (2007), “Megamind” (2010) and “ParaNorman” (2012), according to the Internet Movie Database.

Talks on for a 'Mad About You' revival: reports

Nearly two decades after its series finale aired, talks are on for a possible revival of NBC’s hit show “Mad About You,” according to multiple reports.

>> Read more trending news

“Mad About You” followed the lives of newlyweds Paul Buchman, played by Paul Reiser, and Jamie Stemple Buchman, played by Helen Hunt, as they built a life together in New York City. Its seven seasons aired on NBC from 1992 to 1999 and earned a Golden Globe Award and a Peabody Award, among other accolades.

Producers with Sony Pictures Television Studios have started informal talks with Reiser and Hunt about reviving the series for a limited run, television news site TV Line reported Tuesday, citing unidentified sources. The site reported that Reiser, who co-created the show with Danny Jacobson, has spearheaded the effort to bring the show back.

Sources confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Sony TV producers were eyeing a potential reboot of the series with Reiser and Hunt reprising their roles, although NBC was not expected to be involved in the revival.

The series reboot would be set in the present day and follow the Buchmans as they deal with life after their daughter, Mabel, is accepted to college, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Reiser hinted at the possibility of another season of “Mad About You” in October, while promoting the second season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” He plays a doctor in the series.

“If we can find the story to tell, and anybody’s interested, I’d be open to it,” Reiser said, according to People. “For years, I would’ve said, ‘Absolutely no. We never would do it,’ because I was very proud of how we ended it really well.”

The series ended with a flash forward episode set 22 years in the future, an episode that will likely be set aside if “Mad About You” gets an eighth season.

“Our thinking at the time was, ‘Let’s make sure we never get tempted to come back. Let’s tell them what happens,’” Reiser told People. “Now, because everybody’s talking about it, I started to think, ‘Maybe if there’s a story we could come up with. … To me, it’s interesting when I see my kids are growing and leaving the house. It’s like, ‘Oh.’ It’s like that moment when you get married. It’s like we’re in a new world that we don’t know the rules of.”

‘Real Housewives’ star Luann de Lesseps released from jail, accused of kicking officer

Reality star Luann de Lesseps of “The Real Housewives of New York City” was released from Palm Beach County Jail on Sunday following her arrest by Palm Beach police.

De Lesseps, 52, was released on her own recognizance shortly before noon. She was arrested on felony charges of battery on an officer, resisting arrest with violence and crimes against a person and a misdemeanor charge of disorderly intoxication. She was taken to Palm Beach County Jail at 1:25 a.m.

De Lesseps slammed a door and kicked at least one police officer, said an assistant state’s attorney.

“I’m going to kill you all,” the state’s attorney said de Lesseps told people prior to her arrest.

De Lesseps, who has no prior offenses, will be allowed to go back to New York, said Judge Ted Booras.

Booras, acknowledging de Lesseps’ fame, said she should hire a criminal defense attorney from Palm Beach instead of ignoring the charges.

“I don’t think it would be that hard to find you,” he said.

De Lesseps was advised by Booras not to incriminate herself by responding to him when he said she might have a drinking problem.

“Don’t say anything,” he told the reality star.

De Lesseps posted an Instagram story on Saturday about a friend picking out dresses. De Lesseps narrated and said, “Getting ready for pre-Christmas Eve.” In the courtroom and in her mug shot, de Lesseps wore a navy blue dress with yellow flowers on it.

“The countess” told The New York Post’s Page Six her behavior that caused her arrest this weekend was due to “long-buried emotions.”

She said this visit was the first time she was in Palm Beach since her wedding with Tom D’Agostino Jr. at The Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach last New Year’s Eve.

She apologized for the incident Sunday in a statement.

De Lesseps is a former wife of Count Alexandre de Lesseps and retained the French royal title after their 2009 divorce until her marriage to D’Agostino. She was married to D’Agostino until earlier this year.

Puppets from 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer' for sale on eBay -- for $10 million

Rudolph is pulling a lot more than Santa’s sleigh these days.

>> Read more trending news

A pair of puppets from the classic 1964 stop-motion Rankin/Bass TV special, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” were spotted on eBay for a mind-blowing $10 million. 

Up for bid are the puppets of Rudolph and Santa Claus, according to the eBay listing.

The seller is self-proclaimed “1960s Hollywood memorabilia collector” Peter Lutrario (lutcom4imh), who bought the pieces in 2010 from a friend of Rick Goldschmidt, a Rankin/Bass expert, WPIX reported.

His reason for listing the items at the staggering price?

“I was just curious to see what the market would bear,” Lutrario told WPIX. His decision to sell them is curious, considering he once told CNN they held a special place in his heart.

“I never thought I would get the opportunity to own these dolls,” he said in a 2015 interview. “(They) represent what Christmas is to me.” 

Goldschmidt is unhappy that the priceless items are being auctioned off. He hopes they go to a museum so they can be enjoyed by fans.

“It’s just sad to see the puppets being put on eBay,” he told reporters. “People love to see them. It’s something that’s a treasured part of Americana,” he said. “I’d like to see it in a museum -- not in someone’s briefcase.”

Regardless of where they end up, Goldschmidt doesn’t believe they will fetch anywhere near $10 million.

“No one’s going to pay $10 million,” he said. “Not even a museum or the Smithsonian.”

The eBay page for the items read, “These 2 puppets are Certainly one of the Most Iconic and Famous Collectibles in the entire World, and are certainly the Most Famous Holiday and Christmas Props In the History of Television. We are dealing with something Magnificent and Iconic on a Level all its own.”

It continues, “To many, they are Christmas. We all grew up with them, and they are recognizable in an instant by every generation. Couple that with the fact that they are ONE OF A KIND.”

For anyone who has several million lying around, you’ve got until 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 25 to place your bid. Shipping is $9.75, according to the listing.

And yes, Rudolph’s nose is still “oh, so bright.” It still lights up, Lutrario wrote.
