Oscar Worthy? Mariah Carey Fans Call Out “Fake Acting Scene” In Docu-Series

Published: Thursday 26th Jan 2017 by Sam

Oh Mimi.

Mariah Carey‘s E! docu-series ‘Mariah’s World’ set off to a promising start last month. Yet in recent weeks fans have been turned off by the increasing lean towards soap opera antics.

Indeed, as the singer attempts to spin her break-up from billionaire businessman James Packer, the show has focussed less on her ‘Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour’ and more on her blossoming “relationship” with dancer Bryan Tanaka.

And with the finale set to air this Sunday, a preview teaser has sent some fans into a fit of fury.

Find out why (and what they’re saying) below…

The following scene is supposed to depict Carey and Tanaka having a real moment. Yet, her own ‘Lambs’ (as she calls them) have deemed it really fake…

They took to YouTube in their droves to saying…


As the age old adage goes, “if you’re going to do something, always do it well.”

Like, if Mimi wanted to the reality route, go all out. Don’t brand it a “docu-series” to seem “above” the common-folk only for scenes like this surface. It’s rather embarrassing.

We’re not ones to knock anyone’s hustle. After all, sales (not just Mariah’s) are down across the board. Hence, it’s actually very smart and lucrative for her to be anchoring her name in the touring and TV arenas.

She should just be sure to do it right.

In any case, with new Mimi music due imminently, hopefully she can shift the focus to that help us forget this mess ever happened.

Your thoughts?

      Mariah’s Manager does NOT know what she’s doing, she is trying, but she falls short. 1. Mariah should NOT be opening for Lionel Richie 2. Mariah should have shown more SINGING on this show, at the piano, just sing and stop hiding 3. Faded or Make it look good should have been showcased – they are radio friendly

      Mariah Carey is extremely gifted but this show is non-sense – show some vocals, some singing, stop cut and pasting — the tribute to Prince was One Sweet Day – and that was not shown. Stella, what are you doing honey

      • Teflon Boy January 26, 2017

        I have to agree with everything you said, this show is a missed opportunity. 8 episodes in and we’ve barely heard her sing, which is insane as she sounded phenomenal all tour:/ Also, I agree with you re: song choices. This was the perfect platform to display some of her more recent material and instead we get Hero over and over and over. I don’t mind the acting or the scripted moments. I don’t even mind the James Packer spin or Stella’s frequent airtime.., but Mariah is Mariah because of the God Given talent and we’ve missed that. The focus is on the wrong stuff.

  2. Ashanti Does This January 26, 2017

    Better than Beyonce’s performance in Carmen.

    • Kevin c Francois January 26, 2017

      you have a point lmao

    • SMH January 26, 2017

      That’s not really fair is it? Anyone is better at acting than beyonce lol.

  3. S****** Blonde January 26, 2017

    See I knew this was a REALITY SHOW, not any docuseries.

  6. JOHNVIDAL January 26, 2017

    Sam is so ridiculous damn it. Always writing the most irrelevant posts he can think about when it comes to Mariah. That is when it is something negative. Of course tehre´s never a positive post about Mariah coming from him, which would be sooooo easy to do. I mean, it is Mariah freaking Carey. It´s easy.

    • FAF January 26, 2017

      How is it irrelevant when It’s about her show
      Why is it when it’s negative it’s them being pressed

      She performed on New Years and it was bad he was pressed

      When she performs at the wedding it’s bad he was pressed

      Damn so should he stop talking all together

      • JOHNVIDAL January 26, 2017

        No, The New Years performance was obviously a hot topic. But that wedding performance was absolutely irrelevant, as many of these other posts he does about her. Obviously. He never makes a post with her good performances throughout the months in her tours for example.

    • S****** Blonde January 26, 2017

      It’s not that serious, that was acting for sure, it was funny.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 26, 2017

        I agree it was acting obviously. Not serious at all. It´s just Sam always working extra hard to only bring negative essays about Mariah that chatches my attention.

    • KiiKii Palmer January 26, 2017

      Oh give a rest you miserable b*Tch! He’s completely justified in this post. Come on, this was ridiculous even by Mariah’s standards. Especially when she said she doesn’t want everyone to look at her, as if there isn’t an entire production crew in front of her.

    • 2shady4u January 26, 2017

      Right? It’s funny how much mess Sam talks about Mariah and then in other artist post totally unrelated to Mariah he’s using words like “Chanteuse” lmfao he’s a hating LAMB

    • SMH January 26, 2017

      Um, her own fans were calling her out on her bullsh*t. Don’t shoot the messenger, shoot the chick that created this mess to begin with…Mariah lol.

      • 2shady4u January 27, 2017

        I wish I could shoot the messenger he’s always hating. Everybody seems to forget she’s human, and she’s accomplished so much. Like you’ve never created messes in your life ….SMH

  7. Truthtea January 26, 2017

    All this show has done is expose these two as the reason why James Packer dropped her ass like a bad habit! Mariah knew what was happening and let it happen. She never cared for James.

    • LISA LEVINE January 26, 2017

      Girl. She should have married his ugly ass and got them coins. Yes she worth 500 million but he’s worth a billion. She could have F_ked the pool boy while he was at work

      • Al January 27, 2017

        Girl he’s worth 4.4 billion. But oh wells

  8. RhiRocks January 26, 2017

    This is a mess I mean come on she’s Mariah Carey ! She don’t need to be the next Kim kardahsian

  10. Max January 26, 2017

    This show is doing nothing for her image.
    I wonder if her relationship with the James Ogre was real

  11. Theman January 26, 2017

    For starters why are you bringing up sales when discussing her docu series? Two, you wanted this to fail badly and it didn’t. Part of this was like a docu series & the other portion was kind of like an acting gig. But this was decent for what it was. Sam needs some hits and went fishing for an irrelevant story once again. This site is dry. She has shown other sides of herself, so keep reaching for a story Sam. You’re an idiot. You exaggerate everything that she does. You’re embarrassing yourself with these pointless write ups. They always flop. Lastly, how does she go all out for this show? She’s done enough. So you failed again.

  12. smhdee January 26, 2017

    I feel like a lot of this was created after she ended it with James. It was supposed to be about her tour and her planning the wedding, but then they broke up. So a new “storyline” needed to be fabricated hence the whole Bryan Tanaka love interest.

  13. Chileplease (the first and only bih) January 26, 2017

    Not sure how the three fans she has left can defend this travesty

  14. KiiKii Palmer January 26, 2017

    hunnie i’m GAGGING, where is the Mariah troll account when you need her

    • Mariah Carey January 26, 2017

      “Just call my name…. and I’ll be there. Yeah”. But honestly dahhling! All you do is talk about me. I think you’re obsessed. See I wrote this song called “Obsessed”, which is really a song I made for girls who get their hair pulled in school by the boy who only does it because he really. knows he can’t have here. But anyway, you should listen to it because you’ve always got something to say dahhling! I think you need employment or you should meet a nice boy (or girl or whatever dahhling!) That might bring some positivity into your life dahhling! Anyway, #LYM ???

      • KiiKii Palmer January 26, 2017

        YASSSS you better cause a scene and show up on time!

      • KiiKii Palmer January 26, 2017

        *pours myself a SPLASH ?

  15. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) January 26, 2017

    I love Mariah dearly but she should not have not done this show. She keeps letting Stella talk her into doing these foolish stuff that is beneath her. Stella only wants this show to promote herself and her daughters. Mariah needs to wake TF up! I hope they cancel. Do not renew it.

  16. TheOne January 26, 2017

    Who cares??? I mean really!!! Fake or not it’s just entertainment. I just want good meaningful music from MC and that’s it.
    Delivery good music and all will be well with her and her true fans!!

  17. Caleb January 26, 2017

    Who watches this garbage?

  18. Love January 26, 2017

    I’m howling!

  19. ROCK January 26, 2017

    MC wants to be a pop star by all means.But someone needs to tell her that stars shine and dim.What she needs to do now is be the legend she is supposed to be.But all she is doing now is destroying her legendary status with her own bare hands.Anita baker has retired.Mariah should do the same.Retire or release duets..tour…live recording …a ballad once in a while to keep your name out there.But stop trying to compete with Ariana and selena.

  20. Theman January 26, 2017

    Lots of people watch it. You commented.. So you must be garbage too…… She has millions of fans. You’re one too which is why you played yourself by commenting. Mariah has been having fun which she absolutely deserves to. Keep hating if you want to..

  21. Tori January 26, 2017

    …This post is based of YouTube comments? So that means Sam was watching the scenes on YouTube and scrolled down to the comments and MADE a story! “I know that you’re ffaaaannnn”(in my Tamar voice) LMAO, SAM YOU ARE A PATHETIC LITTLE C** STAIN!

  22. Mimi January 26, 2017

    I feel the show had great moments. Her with her kids was a good look. And seeing her be vurunable. She’s actually not all that divaish. Mariah is a legend. And it does pain me to see her do d list things. Your music is classic. Stop with these antics. Humble yourself and stop being cheesy

  23. ?Yellow Diamonds? January 26, 2017

    Lmao!! The sprinklers are coming on

  24. Shaquiiii January 26, 2017

    Wtf. lol.

    I am the REALIST of MC fans but seriously?! This is NOT a documentary! And it has NOT focussed on her tour. It has focussed on TANAKA, STELLA, and her CHOREOGRAPHER. It has become trashy. I don’t believe Mariah would even allow this scene to be on the show if it was real…Truly.

  25. Danzou January 26, 2017

    This was horrible.

  26. Stephy January 26, 2017

    Reality shows are scripted. Mariah is not into that GAY man.

  27. Now time yca ritish wauyzbi January 28, 2017

    Lol hahahaha maybe she need to take acting class
