Was Anything on Mariah Carey's Reality Show Real?Rich Juzwiak1/30/17 12:25pmFiled to: Mariah's WorldMariah CareyBryan TanakaStella BulochnikovE!Reality TVTelevison485EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThe soapy scene Mariah Carey shared with her back-up dancer/co-creative director (?)/love interest (???) Bryan Tanaka that was widely mocked when it hit the internet last week in preview form was far from the only moment of contrivance in last night’s season (????) finale of Mariah’s World. In fact, that scene was par for the course on a show that had about the same grasp on reality as someone who bathes in diamonds and devotes as much of her life as humanly possible to being prone. That’s to say that though its particulars were frequently dubious (if not routinely staged), there could be a way to read Mariah’s World as an interpretive reflection of the reality of a life that would be considered by the vast majority of humans to be utterly unreal. Or something! It’s not like I learned anything about Carey’s actual life over the course of her show’s eight episodes. I’m just guessing here.
