This time around she's trying to hook up with a guy she barely knows and only seems to vacation with, never looks like she's that happy to be around unless it's to pose to a camera, while freshly divorced, has two very young kids, who have never been pictured with as interacting with Shrek on any level, and who's own kids she's barely around. Nothing bodes well about this situation.

    And yes @Laurent, it's very sway that the first thing she did was call a tabloid.

    Nah, I don't think the money does anything. He doesn't need to marry her to infuse money into his family (then again one more screw up like his last venture). Vice versa Mariah is using his bank account status to floss but she doesn't actually need his money either. If they make it to the altar and then wind up divorcing I highly doubt she'd take any money from him. It's not her style. Plenty of couples, each with their own money millions even, get together only to head to Splitsville so it's never been a guarantee.

    Time will reveal all, and I could turn out to be wrong but I'm not holding my breath that, if they do make it to the altar, the marriage will last long. I think Shrek is taken with Mariah's celebrity but the novelty will wear off eventually, like any relationship. Even now, he, more than not, looks over it all. There are a few moments where he looks like he's eating it all up but overall he looks over it.

    I could see Mariah clinging because she wouldn't want to look like an idiot when the relationship reaches the end of the line. She likes to be seen as the victim and the victor. At the same time, she could just take the L and move on (as stupid as she's being now I don't know how to call it).

    Packer on the other hand, once the novelty wears off, he's on to the next. If that blind about the celebrity billionaire spending 45 minutes with an escort while his A-list GF got ready for a date, is anything to go by, he's been on to the next for quite a while already. Shrek may look like a Thumb Thumb but what he lacks in looks, he makes up for in money. I doubt he's had many, if any, women spurn him due to his looks. Many women, particularly the ones he likes to keep company with, will be the epitome of money talks and bullshit walks just so that they can get a piece of him - or rather his checkbook - if just for a while.

    Some old blinds about him and Miranda Kerr.

    This sometime Victoria's Secret model has a significant other forever. They won't confirm a breakup and maybe they are trying to work things out but on Valentine's Day she had a date with her Australian billionaire boyfriend at lunch and they spent several hours in a penthouse at the Beverly Wilshire and he bought her a diamond necklace. That night she went to dinner with her significant other. I think he got her some flowers, but that was about it.

    This A list supermodel who is technically still married flew to Australia to hook up with the guy she cheated with throughout most of her marriage. It was a surprise visit and of course she caught him with several other women at his estate. No one was wearing clothes. The model says she would have forgiven him if he sent the other women home right then but he told the model to leave instead. That was probably a long flight back home. She already found someone else though. Not as rich, but someone nicer.

    I forgot about the diamond necklace bit. Mariah turned up in that heart shaped diamond necklace. Then he/she/they made sure a celeb news outlet, I can't remember which one it was, printed that he gave her a 1,000 red roses. Funny because around the time Miranda and Shrek were trying to say that they weren't dating and were just friends *rolls eyes*, delivery guys were seen bringing bunches of flowers into her house. He certainly has a MO. Unless Mariah's going to forever turn a blind eye to his shenanigans, nothing bodes well that I can see, and even then Packer was the one that filed for divorce from Erica.

    Mariah Carey's 'Epic' Engagement Ring Is 35 Carats (PHOTO)

    01/22/2016 at 10:54 AM ET

    Mariah Carey‘s name is practically synonymous with “ridiculously huge diamonds in large quantities.” Her jewelry collection probably contains more carats than most jewelry stores, and she practically puts on sparkling chandelier earrings to go to the gym. So, naturally, when James Packer, her boyfriend of nearly a year, popped the question last night in N.Y.C., he came armed with an engagement ring that would blow the rest of the singer’s arsenal of mega-watt precious stones out of the water.

    And yes, the rumors are true: the Wilfredo Rosado-designed ring is beyond enormous. It’s 35 whopping carats, in fact. And sure, to some, it might be a tad over-the-top … until you remember that she is Mariah Carey and he is a multi-billionaire and the fourth richest man in Australia. This is essentially the billionaire’s equivalent of he pulled out of a Crackerjack box.

    Vogue.com has all the scoop on the ring, including an interview with Rosado, who, they report, has been a friend of Carey’s for more than 25 years — and thus, knows quite a bit about the diva’s exacting expectations. “I took the standards super high, and I wanted to create a ring that could not be measured up to,” Rosado said, adding that it took two weeks to create. “It was about mixing simplicity with volume, which is very difficult to do … It’s an epic ring for an epic time in her life.”

    And though he knew Carey would love it (“We have the same taste, and when it came down to it, I really wanted to create something for her that was about new beginnings,” ) he still felt the pressure of creating such a huge (literally and figuratively) statement piece. “This was the most challenging piece of jewelry I’ve ever designed,” he said. “I wanted to create the most gorgeous ring for my dear friend, but I also wanted to create the most stunning ring for one of the most iconic divas of our generation.”

    With this new iceberg cresting on her ring finger, Carey joins a rarefied club of mega-carat-sporting celebrities. Angelina Jolie’s “perfect” Robert Procop gem is equally knuckle-spanning, made up of the highest-quality conflict-free diamonds. Gabrielle Union’s $1 million, 8.5-carat cushion-cut ring from Jason of Beverly Hills can practically be seen from outer space.

    When Beyoncé advised Jay Z to put a ring on it, she would only accept the best and the brightest, which in this case translates to a $5 million 18-carat diamond in a setting designed by Lorraine Schwartz.

    And then, of course, there’s Kim Kardashian’s 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz solitaire so big it barely fit into a six-month-old North West’s fist.

    Don't you jut love when designers want to be deep but their work never belies the words they use to describe their creation(s). Nothing about that ring says new beginnings. I see more big, ugly, tacky, and flashy.

    We're already being given details on the engagement ring looks like and Vogue has the scoop? Mmkay. Joins the club? She's already been a part of it.

    Vulgar, vulgar, vulgar. Therefore perfect for these two. When will these morons learn money doesn't buy class. I give this marriage 2 years max. She will pop out an anchor baby for a share in his billions.

    Mariah is still a little girl trapped inside a woman's body looking for her fairytale. She's loving the courtship phase abs he's taken with her 'glamour' who knows? Maybe these crazy kids can make it work..

    Hopefully she'll stick to her original plan of no more kids after the twins. She's got Shrek's superficial attention, for now; so it obviously does not register with her that when he's traipsing around with her on all these conspicuous consumption vacations for weeks on end, on top of his regular trips to Australia and wherever else, that's time he's not in Los Angeles with his own kids. When this "relationship" goes belly up, she hightails it back to living in NYC while his American home base would still be LA, and he's sitting on that ugly yacht with his next, an any kid he has with her would hardly see him. Lord if that wouldn't push her daddy issues/insecurities and guilt off the meter.

    I actually think they've got a surrogate contracted and waiting to happen soon. She won't pop out another baby because she hated being pregnant more so than Kim Kardashian. But I am honestly shocked they're engaged.

    ^

    I've seen into their future


    It's not looking too bright


    So I hope not

    However,


    Just for indulging in this nonsense

    So you could very well be right. I still hope not though. I just have a major pet peeve about adults bringing children into their mess. Time will tell though, as it always does.

    Plus she's 45 even though she looks 30 something. She's had so much ps (and would need so much more) I don't think she could face it when she could easily pay someone to do it for her while she swans around looking 'delicate' in her heels exactly as before.

    won't it be awhile until they actually get married since both of them are reportedly still married to their last spouses.
