Mariah, Whitney in album race
Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, old rivals in the pop music world, are racing to finish
albums and release them this year. Carey looks like she'll be the winner. According to my
sources, she's nearing the end of recording for a CD to follow up her mega-selling

she had many painful experiences during her turbulent marriage to Bobby Brown.
