Fans hoping to see new American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj battle it out in an epic feud may be disappointed. The new panelists, along with host Ryan Seacrest, took a break from filming Hollywood week to chat with the press on Wednesday, and by (almost) all accounts season 12 is steeped in mutual admiration, sunshine and rainbows.
Despite her and Carey's heated exchange during auditions in Charlotte, N.C., Minaj had nothing but kind words for her fellow judges.
"We've jelled really, really well as a group," she told reporters. "We have a great chemistry. We have a great rhythm now together, and we really are taking it serious. ... We really are rooting for the contestants and we want to find a great American Idol."
For Idol veteran Randy Jackson, that means he'll play the hard-to-please role vacated by Simon Cowell.

Just two days into filming the upcoming season of American Idol, Mariah Carey laughed off reports of a feud with fellow new judge Nicki Minaj, who also said that everything was "wonderful, darling."
What a difference two weeks makes!
In a video posted on TMZ.com, Minaj is seen and heard yelling at Carey, who seems to be talking back – but in a quieter voice. Though it's hard to tell what they are saying in the fuzzy footage from the Charlotte, N.C., set, one thing is for sure – Minaj has been repeatedly bleeped out.
According to TMZ, Minaj says, "Don't lose your head. Don't lose your head ... Don't tell me I'm a gangster," and, "I'm not f–––in' putting up with her f–––ing highness over there. Figure it the f––– out."

It wouldn't be a Posche fashion show without the drama, and in the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, there's plenty of name-calling, finger-pointing and bleeping to go around.
After last week's episode, during which a man appeared claiming to have employed Melissa Gorga as a stripper, everyone is all riled up. Was Teresa Giudice involved in setting up her sister-in-law? Joe Gorga seems to think so.
But he's also steaming mad at Posche owner Kim D., who manages to insert herself in all the drama, too.
"You're the scum of the Earth," Joe tells Kim D. outside the show, while Caroline Manzo and Melissa look on.

No drama here – well, at least not yet!
Though Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj were just confirmed to be judges on American Idol's upcoming 12th season alongside Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson, the Internet is already abuzz with rumors of an on-set feud. Too many divas on the panel, perhaps?
"How can we feud in two days? I think a feud takes a little longer," Carey, who confirmed her participation on the show in July, told reporters at a press conference in New York on Monday, shooting down rumors of discord.
For her part, Minaj says she's just happy to be there, telling reporters, "It's wonderful, darling," when asked how she liked being on the show so far.
Added Jackson: "We're having fun, dude. We've been having a good time. There has been a lot of laughs."

Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita haven't exactly been close lately, but no one could have predicted that their issues run this deep.
Case in point: On last night's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, viewers were treated to a hefty Teresa vs. Jacqueline showdown which started innocently ... but ended disastrously.

Hatfields & McCoys, the History Channel's epic miniseries starring Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton as the heads of the famous feuding families in the post-Civil War South, comes to an end Wednesday after the trilogy's first installment Monday registered nearly 14 million viewers – a ratings record for cable.
Costner and Paxton play close friends Devil Anse Hatfield and Randall McCoy, whose personal conflict escalated into a decades-long rivalry between their families in Kentucky and West Virginia, and nearly led to war between the two states in the post-war years.
"Costner comes as close to a hero as this piece gets," opined the Los Angeles Times TV critic. "It is a truly brilliant performance, worthy of an Emmy for the pipe-smoking alone."
Meanwhile, The Washington Post said, "Paxton takes full advantage of his juicier role as Randall McCoy, a war camp survivor with a taste for vengeance and hellfire religion."

While some people were not happy about Chris Brown's performances and win at the Grammy Awards, his ex Rihanna seems to be in a good place with him.
Brown tweeted, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN!" to the singer (real name Robyn Rihanna Fenton) on Monday, her actual birthday, and Rihanna thanked him on her own Twitter account.
Likely to spark even more controversy than Brown, who pled guilty to assaulting Rihanna in 2009, appearing at the Grammys is rumors that he was at her early birthday bash last week and is singing on a remix of her track "Birthday Cake," called "Cake."

It may be her signature color, but Pink is upset about horses being painted pink for the sake of a music video.
"If there are any animal activists around Malibu – at Leo Cabrillo State Beach, there are horses being painted for a stupid music video. Shame," Pink said on her Twitter page on Thursday.
Turns out the painted horses were being used in Selena Gomez's latest video.
"Artists should be more aware and responsible for their actions," Pink later tweeted.
But Gomez's rep says the horses were not in any danger.
