The tabloids love a good diva feud, and rumors had long swirled that Houston and Mariah Carey were rivals with an intense dislike for each other. In 1998, Houston and Carey were both schedule to present Best Male Video at the MTV Video Music Awards. The supposedly dueling singers showed up on stage wearing the same “one-of-a-kind” dress, resulting in a tongue-in-cheek standoff at the podium. After a bit of faux-catty banter, both women tore away their gowns, revealing different dresses, followed by a seemingly sincere hug. The two mezzo-sopranos worked together on the Academy Award winning Prince of Egypt soundtrack and Carey lead the tribute to her friend at the 2012 BET Awards.
