Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon, Dennis Rodman, Barbara Walters, Whitney Houston, Ellen Degeneres and Beyonce

Clark Dark here, your entertainment reporter, with another edition of my Celebrity Round-Up.

First up... the world of entertainment is all abuzz with reports of the nuptials of singer, cum actress, Mariah Carey and actor Nick Cannon. Everything seems to indicate they married earlier this week at Cannon's home in the Bahamas. If this is true and not a publicity stunt as suspected by some reporters, it will be the first marriage for Cannon who is age 27, and the second for Carey who is age 38. Suspicion of a stunt to garner publicity is well grounded in that Cannon has given engagement rings to several others including the big proposal to Victoria Secret Model Selita Ebanks on the Jimbotron at New York's Times Square last year. The couple parted after a few months.

Dennis Rodman, the former bad boy of the NBA has been arrested and charged with domestic abuse. Rodman who played on championship teams in the NBA, played for a brief time for the Los Angeles Lakers and was a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, was booked on suspicion of domestic violence. It is reported Rodman is not coping well with the aftermath of a recent divorce.

On Tuesday in an upcoming episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show, veteran television broadcaster, producer and reporter Barbara Walters reveals she carried on a secret affair for several years with the former moderate Republican senator of Massachusetts, Edward Brooke. Walters say she was involved in the adulterous affair during the time Brooke was in the senate and married to his first wife. Brooke has since remarried, lives in Florida and has been unavailable for comment on this blackbuster revelation. Barbara was involved in an inter-racial realtionship?? Another thing that makes you say, "Hmmmmmm!"

Sad news for the parents of Bobbi Kristina Brown. According to tabloid reports the
15 year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston has allegedly tried to commit suicide by slashing her wrists. If that news were not bad enough, her mother's recent concert in Tobago has been reveiwed by concert goers as "flat and listless". Many who attended said Houston's voice even cracked during the 30 minute set.

Finally Ameriican Express, the don't leave home without it credit card company, has new television commercials featuring stand-up comedienne Ellen Degeners with a cameo by the newlywed Mrs. Shawn Carter, Beyonce Knowles. The new campaign promotes access to entertainment events when one is a "Card Member". American Express Vice President of Advertising says: "We are thrilled to be working again with Ellen, the quintessential entertainer, who has been a part of the American Express family for years. Both she and Beyoncé truly know what it means to engage and delight audiences."

That's it for this edition of Celebrity Round-Up.I'm Clark Dark.
