What Led to Mariah Carey’s Axed Cameo in ‘The House’? The Cast Speaks Out!
Comedian Will Ferrell appeared on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” this week, where he opened up about Mariah Carey's cut cameo in his new movie, “The House."
When Meyers pried for details about her rumored diva behavior, Ferrell hinted, "There were suggestions that weren't executed. So, no. She was on our set, and, yeah, things happened.” Watch!
"Let's just put it this way,” Ferrell went on. "At about midnight, I got a knock on my trailer and [they] said 'You can just go home. We're not going to get to you.'"
Before her cameo was scrapped, Ferrell implied that Mariah showed up late to set, saying, "She eventually did show up.”
After Ferrell's television comments, co-star Cedric Yarbrough also slammed Mariah in a now-deleted Facebook post. He wrote, "This lady was unprofessional & borderline abusive to our director, who tried his best to appease her every wish. In the acting community, it's not very good form to 'tell' on your fellow actors. They could be having a bad day, going through some personal things, & maybe Mariah was, I don't know. But I do know that our crew didn't deserve that, our director didn't.”
Last month, Rob Huebel, who is also in the film, told SiriusXM's Entertainment Weekly channel, "We did some reshoots with a pop star named Mariah Carey. It did not go well. F**king what is going on with her? It was bananas.”
Mariah doesn't appear to be fazed by the criticism. She was seen on Friday flashing a smile while spending time with daughter Monroe in Paris.
