Before Nick Cannon was married to Mariah Carey he was engaged to model, Selita Ebanks. The former couple were both guests on Katie and were even seated next to each other and things were just a little awkward. Nick and the cast of Real Husbands of Hollywood were on the show to promote the new season and for some reason Selita was also there…Selita turns to Nick at a point and says, “Hi, how are you?”…Looks like their breakup with probably just a little messy, but over 5 years ago! Nick the told the audience, “So we’ll just clear this all up. We used to be engaged, so it’s not an awkward moment. They’re laughing that we’re sitting next to each other. But we’re cool. We’re friends,” putting his arm around Selita.
“Maybe we should have put you guys on different chairs,” Couric said. But Selita added Nick’s hot pink suit would have clashed with fellow guest Cynthia Kate McWilliams’ dress. Then Nick turned to Selita, “What? You didn’t want to sit next to me?” And She retorted, “It’s about to turn into a whole different kind of talk show!” Nick went on to marry Mariah just 7 moths afte rhis split from Selita.
Nick is so funny and Selita looked like a good sport about teh situation.
