Mariah Carey Makes Waves in Aspen

Apparently the good people of Aspen aren't disappointed with the way Mariah Carey is smitten with London. According to today's edition of Page Six, sales people in a "high-end sporting-goods shop" in Aspen were overheard talking about how sweet Renee Zellweger was compared to Carey.

They griped about Carey's entourage, and her demands the store be shut down for her.

At that point, claim Page Six sources, "an older gentleman purchasing an orange ski jacket unexpectedly chimed in with, 'Yeah...that girl will really make your head spin!"

Page Six reports that one staffer did a double-take and recognized the man as Carey's ex, Tommy Mottola.
