Mariah Carey literally took a trip down on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' but managed to handle it with professionalism.
Mariah Carey's high-heels almost caused her an embarrassment on national television. The singer actress was the guest of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Tuesday, November 3 night and she took a tumble down the steps, nearly falling to the floor upon her entrance.
The little incident has since become overrated with some media outlets reporting she was probably drunk during the appearance. Carey has had difficulty since the very first second she came to the stage. Taking an effort to look down in the first almost-fall, she was ignorant of the next step to greet the studio audience. Nevertheless, Carey took it lightly and joked that she did it on purpose to keep Jay Leno from being nervous.
Mariah Carey visited the late night talk show to promote two things, her latest album "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" which was released in late September and her upcoming movie "Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire" which comes in U.S. theaters on Friday, November 6.
In the feature film project which was co-produced by Oprah Winfrey, Carey plays a social worker named Mrs. Weiss, a role which reportedly was offered to Helen Mirren before she walked out.
