A friend of mine sends out an entertainment newsletter through email every day. At the end she always includes some celebrity quotes for the day. Yesterday, she included the Mariah Carey quote: http://www.snopes.com/quotes/carey.htm

Of course I sent her to the snopes page....when I asked where she got the quote from she said the New York Post. I emailed her again to see if this was printed there recently and if she has a link.....haven't heard yet.

This was in her newsletter today:

I WAS DUPED! Even ShallowSue can be fooled sometimes.
Found out that the Mariah Carey quote I had yesterday is false. Seems a parody website made it up, but somehow it made its way into mainstream media, which is where I picked it up. Sorry about that. Hope it doesn't hurt my shallow credibility too much. Anyway, I think its funny that media seem to believe Carey would say something like that!

Still haven't found out if NY Post printed it recently.
