Why you so obsessed with them?

It may not be Oct. 3 (National Mean Girls Day), but regardless, it's always the perfect time to remember how deep Mariah Carey's love for "Mean Girls" is -- especially now that she's directing a Christmas film starring Lacey Chabert, who played mean girl Gretchen Wieners.
