Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon Attend The 2012 BET Honors


Earlier this month we learned that Nick Cannon was hospitalized with minor kidney failure while he was vacationing in Aspen, CO with his wife Mariah Carey and their twin children Monroe and Moroccan Scott. A couple of weeks later, we learned the happy news that Nick was released from the hospital after undergoing successful surgery so that he could recuperate at home. Today we learn that Nick made his first public appearance since his release from the hospital at the BET Honors in Washington DC last night. Click below to see photos of Nick, Mimi and their son Moroccan Scott at the awards show last night.

She has been following the Jenny Craig diet since she gave birth to her twins Moroccan and Monroe in April last year. So you could hardly blame Mariah Carey for showing off the results in an eye catching outfit at tonight’s BET honors event in Washington. The 41-year-old star smiled broadly as she escorted husband Nick Cannon, who has recently recovered from a kidney illness which saw him hospitalised. The singer donned a nude gown with eye catching black sequin detail as posed for photographers on the red carpet of the event, held by BET (Black Entertainment Television). The ambassador for the weight loss plan showed off her flat stomach underneath her maxi dress, but bared minimal flesh. Her long hair was twisted up into a long half ponytail style which cascaded down her back. And much to the crowd’s delight, Nick carried the couple’s baby son Moroccan out onstage. Dressed in a smart black suit, the cute youngster looked a bit bewildered at the applause. Nick looked a little tired but cheerful in black tie as he made his first public appearance since he was released from hospital earlier this week. He was put in medical care on January 4 for mild kidney failure, but has been ‘resting and recovering at home,’ according to a representative. Mariah looked thrilled to have him back, planting a loving kiss on the TV star in front of the cameras … Mariah was clearly excited about attending tonight’s event, in which she was honoured alongside Stevie Wonder, Spike Lee and Maya Angelou.

Awww … look at Nick looking so well. He looks really happy to be with his family at this event … I’m sure he’s really happy to be out of the hospital and on his feet again. I’m sure Mariah was very happy to be honored by BET last night but she looked most happy that her hubby is recuperating nicely from his scary illness. No word on why Monroe was not at last night’s event … maybe the little girl was having a diva moment? I wouldn’t be surprised in the least ;) In any event, I’m really glad to see Nick on his feet again. He really does look great, don’t he?

    i cant decided if i love that dress or not. i mean i like it and it shows off her amazing figure…but it makes her bust line look off.

    • Lexifer

  • Jose

    Nice couple. Horrible dress omg

  • cmc

    That dress is SO unflattering. Either it makes her look bigger, or she’s not as thin as she thinks she is.

    Did Jenny Craig approve of that dress?

    Excited to see the show though. Weird Monroe wasn’t there.
