No More Morning Radio For Nick Cannon Unless He Wants To Die


I give Nick Cannon a lot of crap about being the lap dog of Mariah Carey, but the fact is he also works like crazy. He does about the same amount of work as Ryan Seacrest and he has Mariah Carey to deal with everyday too so that puts him well beyond anything Ryan has going for him. All of this work and flying back and forth across the country is killing him though. Literally. There was the kidney shutdown. Then, last week it was discovered he had two blood clots in his lungs. Umm, those are a killer. His doctors told him that if he does not stop working so much, he will die. So, he has decided to stop hosting his morning radio show in New York. He will still have a weekly countdown show plus America's Got Talent, plus all the other stuff he does. Oh, and the nightly feet scraping for Mariah.


I hope he gets better soon. Nick, you have two kids and a wife and all the money you will ever need. Enjoy them.

I like this guy, but health is true wealth.

BigMama said...

I have always liked him, even when he was a kid on Nickelodeon. I hope he gets better.

Patty said...

Everything in the world means nothing if you are not healthy. Do what you need to do so you can be there for dem babies!

MISCH said...

Slow down Nick...

Barton Fink said...

I sometimes wonder if he would be so popular if he weren't so goodlooking, suave, charming, sexy and totally overwhelming. Then I realize I'm in coming dangerously close to falling in love, so I have to stop thinking about him. Damn. I hope he stays healthy forever.

Vicki Cupper said...

Wow. I'm starting to like this guy. He seems like he actually cares about Mariah.

Why can't he do the radio show from LA or wherever he lives?

Mango said...

He seems like a nice guy and being married to Mariah can't be easy.

Borg Queen said...

I also appreciate that fact instead of living off of Mariah, he goes out there, hustles many gigs and earns his own money.

Sadie said...

A blood clot to the lung is deadly. many people have died from it. I actually survived it at 20 yrs of age. I now have whats known as a greenfield filter in my jugular vein that strains my blood and keeps clots from going to my heart and killing me.

Good Luck Nick!

timebob said...

He would get up at 3am when he was in LA with AGT to do the show live for NY that is crazy.

Nick told Howard Stern he would sleep in corners of the stage during AGT tapings since he couldn't get any sleep.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Agreed w/ @Mango & @Borg Queen.

Get some R&R Nick. Nothing should be more important than your health & family. <3

DixieTheNoble82 said...

^wow @Sadie! Glad you are still with us!

Layna Day said...

The whole "Nick bums off Mariah" was silly. The man has always worked. Mariah could have done a lot worse for a husband. Hope he gets to feeling better.

bumbumgirl said...

Sadie - you are the first person I have heard talk about the Greenfield Filter. My dad had one, and very few people were familiar with it, doctors included. It is a lifesaver and anyone that has clotting conditions should consider getting one.

That aside, I totally adore Nick. Here is this kid, who fell in love and married one of the wealthiest woman around and instead of riding her coattails, he works his ass off to make his own money. Bravo. Others should take note and follow his example. I’m looking at you, Jessica Simpson’s baby daddy. (What the heck is his name anyway?)

Love this guy...although, he better divorce Mariah if he wants to live. She's going to put him in an early grave.

parissucksliterally said...

Oh my Lord! Nick, take care of yourself!

I have no feelings about him either way, but he needs to slow down.

Lori said...

loooove Nick!! I also like the cute "chairman" commercials he did for Teen Nick. Seems like he is a super hard worker and he has a very affable and charming air about him. I wish him health.

anita_mark said...

I'm pretty sure my husband would deal with the crazy to get to sleep with Mariah.

LeeLee said...

I find him really likable too! He needs to slow down and enjoy his blessings.

Idiot Watcher said...

Damn, I actually really like his radio show whenever I tune in on my commute. He needs to slow down for his health, but I'll miss hearing him on the air!

RenoBlondee said...

OMG, scary! I hope he settles down. I hope that him and Mariah make it all the way too, they seem great for one another.

Ellen said...

I think his talent is way underrated. He has such great comedic timing and charisma. It must take someone with a great sense of humor to be with a diva like Mariah!

Ms Cool said...

I had clots in my lungs and they are so damn scary. I feel lucky to be alive. I hope he is ok. I wonder if he feels he has to prove himself because he doesn't want to be known as Mr. Mariah.

auntliddy said...

Thise are alot of very serious illnesses for such a young person! Yikes! Take a break man!

Sadie said...

Thanks Dixie!

bumbumgirl - did you know the Greenfield Filter is actually named after the man that created it, Dr. Greenfield? I actually met him at the U of M many moons ago.

Sorry to hear that Ms Cool - glad to see your alive and hopefully well :)

JoElla said...

I think they both really love and adore eachother.

I hope he can be in good health soon.

Chrissy Buns said...

I really hope he slows down. Like everyone else is saying, he is a likable guy, and he seems to be a VERY hard worker. It seems like he has worked pretty hard to make sure Mariah isn't his meal ticket, and it is catching up with him. STAY HEALTHY!

Marisa said...

I was kinda upset when i tuned in this morning on my way to work :(

I'll miss him every morning. He's a smart guy.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Take care of yourself, Nick! Your wife and kids all need you!

Del Riser said...

It's so refreshing to see a guy married to a megastar and Diva that actually works. I think he is truly in love with Mariah, and she him.

He is also charming and glib.

Slow down guy, there needs to be more people like you around.

therealjadedentrepreneur said...

Can't hate on anyone with that kind of work ethic. "Feet scraping" just about made me gag.

MadLyb said...

He seems like a cool and very likable guy. I hope he slows it down. He's too young to go out like that.

PollyPureBred said...

I like the guy, and he makes Mariah likable - no easy task! Take it easy buddy. You have all the money you need. Enjoy the wife and babies.
