They’re not quite two months into their marriage, but Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon already face trouble, reports Life & Style. Sources tell the magazine that Mariah’s diva demands could cause the pair to split.

“I give the marriage six months, tops,” said a source close to the singer. “I can’t see it lasting.”

The insider claims that the reason behind that gloom-and-doom prediction is Nick’s need to do everything for his diva bride. While Mariah likes being waited on hand and foot, that routine won’t work in the long run.

“Nick does whatever Mariah wants him to — he’s like her puppy,” the insider continued. “It seems like Nick spends more time in the stores with Mariah’s credit card than he does with Mariah herself.”

A source close to the groom doesn’t see the problem, insisting, “(Mariah) needs someone to dote on her.”

Not so, according to Mariah’s pal, who believes Nick needs to be his own man.

“Mariah’s assistants and friends call him ‘Whipped Nick’ behind his back,” the Mariah insider told Life & Style. “They have little respect for him because he won’t stand up for himself.”

Speidi wedding plans
Don’t expect a long wait for the Spencer Pratt-Heidi Montag nuptials. During a red-carpet chat at the Boost Mobile Rock Corps, Speidi promised E! Online the event will happen “very soon.”

“Just got to get a nice $2 million diamond,” Spencer said of his pre-wedding plans. That was just before Heidi reminded her best beau that her rock should really be worth a whole lot more. “It’s $10 million now?” he asked.

Indeed, but Heidi was quick to show her social consciousness by interrupting, “But no blood diamond!”

While they still need to sort out the when and where of their big day, rest assured, when the knot does get tied, you'll know.

David Spade explains his appeal
Ever wonder what makes David Spade such a catch for the Hollywood hottie crowd?

Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings Despite the fact that he’s hardly hunky, David’s been romantically linked to Carmen Electra, Heather Locklear, Lara Flynn Boyle, Kristy Swanson and Teri Hatcher, just to name a few. In an interview with OK! magazine, the actor shares his secret.

“Everyone is so weird in L.A. that if you’re somewhat normal, it’s exotic,” David revealed. “That has been the only reason some girls have dated me.”

The “Rules of Engagement” star also admits the normal act only gets him so far.

“That goes a long way in a crazy town like L.A.,” David told OK! magazine. “If I moved to the Midwest, it wouldn’t work. If you live in a place where everyone’s cuckoo, that stuff somehow pays off."

Dish on the fly
They’re still hush-hush on possible wedding plans, but Jermaine Dupri and Janet Jackson are ready to start a family. In fact, Jermaine told People magazine they plan to pursue it “right after (Janet’s) tour.” As for whether the couple wants a boy or girl or both, “it really doesn’t matter,” according to the rapper-producer. “Janet would be a great mom. She was around so many brothers and sisters all her life, so she's got to know what that is (like).” … “Entourage’s” Jeremy Piven worked his magic on Megan Fox while hanging out backstage at the Spike TV Guy’s Choice Awards. Well, he tried to. According to the New York Daily News, Jeremy greeted the “Transformers” actress with the old chestnut, “I don’t know you, but I should.” When his line failed to impress, Jeremy continued, “I know you’re getting an award.” Megan asked him if he knew which one, but before Jeremy delivered his witty rejoinder (probably something along the lines of “hottest babe backstage!”), Megan hightailed it. … Watch out Vanessa HudgensZac Efron prefers voluptuous women. "I don't know the exact measurements but I like curvy girls — girls with hips,” the “High School Musical” star said in a quote posted to Showbiz Spy. “I'm also huge on legs. I love girls with nice, long, sexy legs.”
