Mariah Carey revealed in a new interview that watching footage of herself trying on her wedding dress for her impending wedding and upcoming reality show, Mariah’s World, has given her bittersweet 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.
The focal point of the show itself isn’t just her relationship, she explained in the interview posted online 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.”
As previously reported, Carey and the 49-year-old Australian billionaire called off their lavish wedding at the end of September following an ill-fated trip to Mykonos, Greece.
At a September 14 outing, the mogul looked agitated as Carey stopped to take photos with fans at a restaurant, according to an eyewitness. “It was a circus,” the source told Us. “She was taking photos with people. James was rolling his eyes. He looked irate. Every time she walked off, he asked, ‘What is she doing now?’”
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.’”
