Mariah Carey to play Vanessa Hudgens' mother? Ouch.

Can you see Mariah Carey as V anessa Hudgens' mother?

Why not? She's 40 and Vanessa is 21. But that's not the point.

The point is whether Mariah wants to be seen as a 40-year-old mom in a new movie about a mother/daughter singing duo who audition for an "American Idol" kind of show. 

It could be a little more than the Diva can handle.
