The world would be a poorer place without Mariah Carey. The R&B princess works tirelessly for our collective amusement (today, for instance, sees the release of The Adventures of Mimi, the starlet’s concert DVD that features a performance from 2006). In 2005, she released The Emancipation of Mimi, the best-selling record of the year, and was named the sixth richest woman in entertainment, according to Forbes magazine, as of last January. The lady’s worth around $225 million, which, unless you’re Bill Gates and/or the Federal Reserve, is nothing to sneeze at. She’s currently at work on her next studio album, due out in the spring. But that’s not why we’ve included her here, today. No, the reason why she’s made our Hottie of the Week list is because she’s totally delectable. And that episode of Cribs, when she was on the StairMaster in lingerie? That’s been burned into our brains. Permanently.
