MARIAH FALLS FOR TRICKY ELLEN

Everyone wants to know if newlywed Mariah Carey is pregnant, including Ellen DeGeneres! So the talk show host devised a plan to find out.

Ellen offered Mimi a glass of champagne in hopes of catching her guest off-guard. Well, it worked! Flustered Mariah clumsily refused the alcohol, insisting that 3 pm was too early for her to start drinking.

"I can't believe you did this to me, Ellen," said shocked Mariah, who married Nick Cannon earlier this year. "This is peer pressure!"

Still playing coy, Mariah suggested they toast to "both of our futures, who knows what they hold."
