Christmas came early in the form Mariah Carey‘s new show. Bless.
On Sunday evening, E! premiered the highly anticipated docuseries Mariah’s World — and it was EVERYTHING. Not only did the new hit give some behind the scenes looks at MiMi’s private life, but it offered quite a bit of footage of the Fantasy singer lounging about in lingerie. Did we mention we’re obsessed with this show?
Be sure to ch-ch-check out the highlights from the juicy docuseries for yourself (below)!
Mariah definitely knows how to kick off a show. As you may recall, the We Belong Together artist has an alter ego who is vaguely British and named Bianca Storm. So of course, Mariah had Bianca open the docuseries — who warned viewers about how “awful” the A-lister actually is. Cut to Mariah being pushed around in a rolling chair so she didn’t have to walk in her heels. Fierce.
Mariah And James Don’t Yacht Together
No wonder Mariah and James didn’t last. At one point during the episode, Mariah explained how it was “not easy” for her and her billionaire beau to spend time together as the Australian businessman “has so many responsibilities”. In fact, the episode revealed that while the duo were away on vacay, Packer stayed on his own yacht across the way from Mariah’s. Warning sign number one? We think so.
No Crying (Or Dating) Allowed
It’s an honor and privilege to be on Team Mariah — but that doesn’t mean it’s an easy job. It seems new tour assistant Molly Angany is going to have to learn that the hard way. During the premiere we saw Molly get hired by Carey’s manager Stella Bulochnikov, who told the newbie she wasn’t allowed to “cry or date (for the first year)”. Only problem is, Angany already has a boyfriend! Uh oh.
Welcome Back Bryan Tanaka
As you must know, Mariah is currently dating Bryan after splitting with her fianc├â┬⌐ not so long ago. And it looks as if Bryan and the famed diva have known each other for a long time. Still, at the time of filming, Bryan and Mariah hadn’t seen each other in a while. The backup dancer even noted at one point:
“It was around 2005, 2006 when I first met Mariah.├óΓé¼┬ª I think it’s gonna take some time to get back to that comfortability.”
Look how far you’ve come, bud!
Mariah Postpones Her Wedding
After a tough-love conversation with her manager about having a lot on her plate, the mother-of-two listened to her handler and decided to postpone her upcoming nuptials to James. After breaking the news to the 49-year-old, Carey was disheartened as she told the cameras:
“He’s waiting for me to figure it out.”
Stella seemed pretty happy about the postponement as she threw some shade about Packer and his prenup antics. Bulochnikov dished:
“I’ve been dealing with this prenup, and it’s definitely not the most romantic thing I’ve seen read, [I’ll] tell you that.”
Warning sign number two?
Drama On Tour
It wouldn’t be Mariah’s World without any tour dramz! In typical Mariah fashion, the hitmaker was three hours late arriving in Glasgow, Scotland for her tour. She was particularly pissed when her nanny packed her passport in her suitcase, as it caused all kind of delays! Of course, newbie Molly was in the hot seat too as she struggled to assemble her famous boss’ Apple TV. With pure fear in her eyes, Molly shared:
“The Apple TV, that’s the most important thing.├óΓé¼┬ª If she can’t have the Apple TV playing while she sleeps, then she can’t sleep.”
Obviously, the assistant cried — breaking ANOTHER rule designated for M.C.’s employees. Sigh!
Be sure to catch the rest of the Mariah’s World drama by tuning into E! on Sundays at 9 p.m. E.T.
