I don’t know Mariah Carey’s new manager (I literally “I don’t know her”), but I’m sort of leaning towards Team Entourage. I mean, look at the dog tags on that necklace; there isn’t a single Hello Kitty head made out of pave pink sapphires to be seen. Anyone who dares to wear such uninspired jewelry around Mimi clearly doesn’t have her client’s best interests in mind.
But back to Team Entourage. According to Page Six, several people in Mariah’s team have handed in their two weeks notice because they can’t stand her new manager, Stella Bulochnikov. Sources say Mimi’s business manager Michael Kane, international publicist Connie Filippello, domestic publicist Chris Chambers, tour manager Michael Richardson, travel manager Gaylin Winkler, and stylist Wilfredo Rosado (who designed Mimi’s gorgeous engagement ring) have all quit. That’s too bad, because if anyone should be working for glitter candy butterfly diva Mariah Carey, it’s a person named “Gaylin Winkler.”
Mimi hired Stella last year after they were introduced by Brett Ratner. That alone is technically reason enough for why you wouldn’t want to work with someone, but there are a bunch of reasons why Mimi’s crew quit. Sources say Stella is “toxic” and difficult to work with, adding that “seasoned executives in their profession don’t want to put up with her.” She also brought in her family to help manage Mimi’s career. Her former team is also side-eyeing Mimi’s choice to hire a “complete stranger” to manager her career. They’re also not crazy about Stella acting as the puppet master for Mariah’s upcoming reality show.
As for that reality show, a source tell Page Six that Stella is using the show to talk shit and spread lies about Mimi’s former employees. Apparently Mariah’s reality show is Stella’s own personal Burn Book. She has also allegedly changed the focus of the show. The show was supposed to be about Mariah’s shows in Las Vegas. But the source claims that Stella has turned it into a trashy pile of fakery. Okay, I’ve officially moved over to Team Stella. Not only is she the reason for why we’ve been given the greatest gift of our lifetimes, but she’s also the reason for why it will be an over-the-top dramatic mess. Thank you Stella! You truly do care about Mariah’s legacy.
