Mariah Carey emphatically confirmed on Tuesday night during Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live that she does not know Jennifer Lopez.
The two women clearly have different definitions of what it means to “know” someone, because according to Lopez, they know each other, but according to Carey, she does not know the “Big Booty” singer.
“Apparently, I’m forgetful because I don’t remember the fact that it was ‘hi I’m so and so’ and then move on. And then ‘hi’ and that’s it. If I had never had a conversation with you and someone asks me about you, I’d be like ‘I don’t know him but he seems cool’ or ‘I don’ t know him.'”
That’s when Cohen asked the follow up question, “Does she seem cool?” Carey responded, “I don’t know her. What am I supposed to say? I’m not going to put on a thing like ‘we are all Hollywood lets all pretend to we are best friends because we are in that land.’ It’s no offense to anybody.”
Both women attended NBC’s Upfront Presentation in NYC Monday night and according to our sources, avoided an awkward run in. Apparently, although both ladies attended the event, they were never in the building at the same time. Phew. We wonder how that conversation would have gone.
