LOL-- I'm also more interested in the Mariah-Beyonce meeting.
Anyway, Nick's got money. He may be an attention-seeker, but so are all celebrities, Mariah included. Nick does standup and gets in trouble-- so do all comedians. I never saw Nick as after Mariah for any reason other than she was his dream woman growing up and he finally snagged her. IMO it seemed like real love snuck in there too. I don't see their current outings as Nick's plea for attention any more than Mariah's. He quit his job on AGT and gave up that (easy) paycheck, so it doesn't seem like he's that desperate for money either.
