Mariah's World

As I'm sure you've heard me mention before, Mariah Carey is my favourite singer! :) Her new reality show Mariah's World just started showing in the UK and it's been interesting to learn a bit more about her. I was surprised that she was doing a reality show/documentary actually because she seems like quite a private person. There are all the diva rumours but I don't know much about her day to day life.

Mariah's World follows Mariah preparing for the European leg of her world tour Sweet Sweet Fantasy and also getting ready for her wedding to Australian businessman and investor James Packer (now her ex-fiancé). Her twins with ex-husband rapper and actor Nick Cannon, Morrocan and Monroe also make an appearance. Other people featuring are her new manager Stella Bulochnikov and choreographer/dancer Anthony Burrell, who you'll know already if you're a Dance Moms fan. (Abby's arch rival Cathy brought him in to choreograph for her team Candy Apples). We also saw Mariah's nephew in the first episode last Sunday. Plus there are shots of Mariah lying around in skimpy outfits!

Here's the trailer:

Also here's a clip from the first episode:

I've only seen one episode so far but the series seems good. Mariah had to postpone her wedding to James because she was too busy with the tour. She then travelled to Glasgow but was late because the twins' nanny packed her passport in her suitcase, so didn't have it with her on the plane. Her new assistant Molly got upset because she couldn't plug Mariah's Apple TV in in the hotel room (she needs it to help her sleep) and Anthony threw a bit of a strop over costumes! lol. I don't hugely like the manager Stella but Mariah said she needed someone like her because she was being taken advantage of. I felt sorry for Molly getting so upset. :( I don't think I could do that kind of job, I'd find it really stressful.

Mariah seems to work hard. I remember reading years ago that she's nocturnal and we saw her arriving at the dance studio in the evening and rehearsing until the early morning. She was wary about being lifted by her dancers since she did that during a performance before and hurt her shoulder.

Since the show was filmed, Mariah and James have broken up. She's now dating Bryan Tanaka who was a dancer on the tour. He appears in Mariah's World; apparently more footage of him was added after she split from James. You can read an article about that here:

Mariah's World is on E! on Sunday at 9pm.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.

Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:



Brianna Jaramillo

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
