Mariah & Nick Considering "Tasteful" Tabloid Pix Of Twins

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Mariah Carey is trying to make a deal with a tabloid for “tasteful” photographs of her twins. Mags like People and Ok! are vying to set something up, and a source says: “Mariah and Nick are more concerned with doing the right thing than going to the highest bidder… They’re talking to a number of publications about doing it in the best and most tasteful way.” Having a celebrity weekly print the first photograph of your child helps keep the paparazzi off your back — the “first” picture is usually very valuable. That said, Mariah and Nick will not get the $14 million Brad and Angie got for images of twins Knox and Vivienne in 2008 (which went to charity). A source explains: “Times and budgets have changed from the Brangie baby years.” [Page Six]

Lindsay Lohan‘s house arrest is going really well!

The company was offering $25K, which she turned down, but some sort of agreement was reached, and in addition, LL was given a $10,000 credit to spend on the website. Fittingly, the commercial, which you may view at the link, looks to have a budget of about a penny. [TMZ]
