On Sunday night’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Mariah Carey decided to throw some shade at her 12-year feud with Eminem when she took part in the show’s signature game “Plead the Fifth.”
“Mariah Carey, say three nice things about Eminem,” Andy said.
The mom of two didn’t plead the fifth – instead, she took the opportunity to talk about a different kind of Eminem.
“They come in a package that you can carry wherever you go,” she said referencing the “melts in your mouth, not in your hand” candy M&M’s.
“People love them around the world, and they’re tasty. You can have peanut or the regular kind,” she continued, as the crowd and Andy burst out laughing.

Their long-standing feud began in 2001 when Mariah and the rapper met up to discuss a possible collaboration on her Charmbracelet album.
The couple reportedly began dating for a brief time before their relationship quickly turned sour.
In 2002, Eminem hinted that she was somewhat clingy on his album The Eminem Show.
“What you trying to be? My new wife? / What, you Mariah? Fly through twice,” he rapped on “Superman.”
That same year, he confirmed their relationship. “There’s truth to that,” he told Rolling Stone. “But on the whole personal level, I’m not really feeling it. I just don’t like her as a person.”
Mariah, however, vehemently denied his claims.
She told Maxim there was never a “sexual relationship.”
“I hung out with him, I spoke to him on the phone,” she later explained to Larry King. “I think I was probably with him a total of four times. And I don’t consider that dating somebody.”
During her 2003 tour, she included a The Marionette Show, which parodied The Eminem Show.
Leave it Slim Shady to retaliate. While on tour in 2005, he played voicemails allegedly from Mariah with her questioning, “Why won’t you see me? Why won’t you call me?”
A close friend of the superstar’s said an “impostor” recorded those messages.
Em went after the “#Beautiful” songstress again on his Re-Up album in 2006 when he talked about sexting her.
He then took to the airwaves to put her on blast.
After calling her a bunch of derogatory names in a radio interview, he admitted they “did have a relationship for about a good six, seven months” and he was bothered by “the fact that she denied [they] ever had something.”
The pair went silent about the issue for a couple years until Mariah married Nick Cannon in 2008.
The 8 Mile actor wrote “Bagpipes from Baghdad” (Warning: NSFW) off his 2009 album Relapse about the marriage.
He calls the comedian a few inappropriate names and insults his once alleged girlfriend.
This led Nick to respond on his website and defend Mariah.
Later that year, the now mom of two released “Obsessed,” the first single off her upcoming album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.
She portrays a stalker that bares an uncanny resemblance to Eminem in the video.
That didn’t sit so well with the musician, who then went after his ex and her husband in a seriously NSFW diss track.
He goes into graphic detail about their sexual encounter and even threatens to release proof confirming their brief love affair.
As for the beauty, she's now enjoying the holidays with her man and 2-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, in Aspen, Colo.
And it wouldn't be Christmas without a pic or two of Mariah in a red bikini in front of the tree and in the snow.
