We might soon be seeing two Mimis on the small screen.
ET’s Carly Steel sat down with Mariah Carey’s manager, Stella Bulochnikov, on Wednesday, where she dished all about Mariah’s World — and revealed that she and the singer are working on a “secret” scripted drama about her life.
“We have a secret project,” Bulochnikov revealed. “We do have a scripted drama that we are developing that has not been announced about Mariah’s life that’s going to be incredibly poignant.”
As for who would play the singer, who her manager describes as “one in seven billion,” Bulochnikov says she’s not sure.
“I don’t even know,” she confessed. “We haven’t gotten there.”
A secret biopic isn’t the only project Carey’s got in the works. The mother of two, who starred in and directed Hallmark’s A Christmas Melody last December, has signed a deal with the network to develop, executive produce, direct and co-star in three more original movies, as well as compose an original song for each.
“We’ll hopefully do, you know, holiday movies with them, and the first of which we were supposed to do this February, but of course we have this tour, so we had to push it. But we’ll get a good movie out to the public,” Bulochnikov explained, adding that “we’ll see” if Carey will participate in a second season of her E! docuseries, Mariah’s World.
Something else we’ll have to wait on? Finding out where that steamy kiss between Carey and her back-up dancer-turned-boyfriend Bryan Tanaka came from on the midseason teaser of the reality series.
“We’ve got a really strong team around us of good people. We support each other and love each other, and it’s going to stay that way in the New Year,” Bulochnikov teased. “We’re like a traveling family.”
It seems Carey is trying to focus on the positive after her disastrous performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest on Saturday, where the singer suffered technical difficulties before walking off the stage.
“I’m of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artist go through that and he would have been as mortified as I was in real time,” the songstress told Entertainment Weekly on Wednesday.
“It’s not going to stop me from doing a live event in the future,” she added. “But it will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team.”
