Mariah Carey revealed in a new interview that watching footage of herself trying on her wedding dress for her upcoming reality series, Mariah’s World, has brought up an odd mix of feelings.
“All of those moments are bittersweet, but you just have to focus on whatever you’re focusing on and keep it moving,” she told Entertainment Tonight of rewatching footage of herself planning her nixed wedding to ex-fiancé James Packer. In some scenes, the pop icon can be seen trying on her wedding dress.
The focus for MC’s reality show itself isn’t just her relationship, she explained in the interview on Friday, November 25. “The stories [are] interesting because it shows the side of the entertainment world that’s not just the celebrity [aspect],” Carey said. “It’s real [and] I don’t feel like it feels like a scripted kind of reality [show] whatsoever.”
Carey and the 49-year-old Australian billionaire called off their lavish wedding at the end of September following a sour trip to Mykonos, Greece.
Another source told Us Weekly that Packer called off their engagement while they were aboard his yacht in Greece, planning their vows. “It was like Jekyll and Hyde,” a Carey pal told Us. “Suddenly he’s like, ‘I don’t think I can do this.’”
