[Blind Gossip] This female celebrity is quite rich and quite vain. She recently had cases upon cases of coconut water delivered to her home.
She had read that coconut water was good for your skin… and wanted to take a bath in it.
She had [a member of her household] pour some of the cartons (it seemed like hundreds of them) directly into the tub. The rest was heated up on the stove and carried in big heavy pots and dumped by hand into the tub. She wanted the tub to be full and at the perfect temperature.
After bathing in it for an hour or so, she was less than impressed with the results.
She was complaining that she didn’t feel a difference. She went back and read the article again and realized that it said coconut MILK, not coconut WATER. Dummy.

[Optional] How much do you think that bath cost her?
Woman: Mariah Carey
Yes, Mariah Carey, the ultimate diva, bathes in liquids other than tap water!
Blind Gossip told you about the incident with the coconut water/coconut milk. In an interview published today, she talks about her preference for bathing in milk (or, in a pinch, mineral water)!
From The Guardian:
‘I bathe in milk’: Mariah Carey on bossiness, breakups and being bipolar
Mariah Carey is the most famous, or infamous, diva in the music business. And today she doesn’t disappoint. When I ask whether the outlandish stories about her are true, she becomes spectacularly diva-ish about her own divadom. “Are there myths about other people and their diva-ishness?”’ she asks. Of course, I say – but not as many. “So I have more myths about the diva-ishness?” Yes, but I’m trying to find out if they are true. OK, fire.
Is it true you once asked for 20 white kittens and 100 white doves as a rider? (In 2009, it was reported that this is what she had asked to be surrounded with when opening the Westfield shopping centre’s Christmas lights, but she was turned down on health and safety grounds.) “No, 20 cats is an absolute lie. I’m not a cat lady. I don’t have one cat any more.”
Fair enough, I say. Do you insist on a new toilet seat and gold taps whenever you stay in a hotel? “I mean, honestly? Golden taps! I could just buy a house for that!”
Please, can this next one be true – your reputation is at stake: do you only bathe in French mineral water? “No, I bathe in milk.” Really? “Yes, sometimes I use milk as a beauty treatment. I don’t want to give away all my secrets.” Hot or cold? “‘Cold milk.” So the mineral water is not true? She smiles. “Well, I guess if there’s no clean water and I had to use mineral water, maybe I would.”
You can read the entire article here.
By the way, we did the math. If Mariah Carey she used an average-sized bathtub and filled it up, she would require 100 gallons of liquid.
A bath in organic cow’s milk: $700
A bath in coconut water: $850
A bath in coconut milk: $500
A bath in Voss mineral water: $1200
Your mileage may vary.
Congratulations to EastCoaster andMaryQuiteContrary who tied for being first – and definitive – with their correct answers! You’ve both earned yourselves a milk bath and a glass of champagne!
