Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
The actress accidentally confirms Carey's pregnancy but then backpaddles.
It was during a live interview on American talk show The View to promote her new film "For Colored Girls" that British actress let slip Mariah Carey is pregnant.
Newton took the role of Tangie, which was supposed to be played by Carey, at the very last minute, because, as she said "I think she's pregnant".
Realising her gaffe, Newton immediately backpaddled saying, "or something major is going on in her life, so I carried the baton for her."
There has been a lot of speculation on whether Mariah Carey is expecting her first child.
The singer has been looking increasingly bigger in the last few months, but has refused to confirm or deny the pregnancy.
