It’s official: Mariah Carey is getting her own reality-TV show, on the E! channel.
Mariah confirmed that she’ll be starring in an eight-part documentary series called "Mariah’s World."
[su_quote cite="Mariah Carey"]“I thought it would be a good opportunity to kind of, like, show my personality and who I am, even though I feel like my real fans have an idea of who I am, A lot of people have misperceptions about this and that.”[/su_quote]
She says it’s more about getting to know her better and not, “Here I am, getting my nails done.”
She adds that her 4-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, won’t be filmed much. Neither will Packer.
Filming for the reality
show began two weeks ago. It will follow Carey on tour in Europe and South Africa and as she plans her wedding to Australian billionaire James Packer. The wedding reportedly will take place this spring, but no date has been set.
Carey, who divorced Nick Cannon last year, explains that the series won’t be frivolous or exploitative. “I refuse to call it a reality show,” she told the Times.
The hour-long series is expected to debut later this year, possibly by late summer.
