Mariah Carey is blissfully unaware she’s about to muddy her career with a reality show about her personal life.
Carey is on cloud 9 since news broke of her engagement to wealthy businessman James Packer, and she wants everyone to witness it. Carey reportedly inked a deal to star in a reality TV show that centers around her life off-stage, and it’s leaving people in her inner-circle feeling unsettled.
“Someone of Mariah’s stature should not be doing this. Whitney Houston did a reality show and that was the real end of it. We hope that it doesn’t end up being like when Whitney did ‘Being Bobby Brown,’” a Carey insider told Page Six.
Carey’s manager, Stella Bulochnikov, is the credited “mastermind” behind the show, which she’ll also star in, but according to insiders… Bulochnikov is a handful.
“Mariah’s amazing and treats people with the utmost respect and kindness and Stella is the total opposite. She comes from producing reality TV and calls herself the Russian dictator,” said the source, who added, “I guess Mariah is just in love and not paying attention to what’s happening around her.”
Bulochnikov appropriately responded to Page Six regarding the story, saying: “If you’re trying to get into my good graces, you’re doing a wonderful job. Feel free to write whatever the f–k k you want, so all three of your readers can be amused. F–k off and lose my number. You are an idiot. Mariah is on fire.”
For the record, Packer’s rep denies he has any involvement in the show, but whatever Mariah wants… Mariah gets. #MariahIsOnFire
