"All of those moments are bittersweet, but you just have to focus on whatever you're focusing on and keep it moving," Carey told ET of seeing her happier times played back.

Though sources say Mariah has been in "self-destruct mode" following her heartbreaking split from Packer, the pop diva seems to have moved on already — to her backup dancer Bryan Tanaka!

Before their breakup, there was buzz that Carey's Aussie billionaire ex became extremely "jealous" of Tanaka, whom Carey had grown close to during their relationship meltdown.

When ET asked if the two were currently an item, Carey coyly replied, "You have to just wait and watch the show."

As for ex-husband Nick Cannon, with whom she has 5-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, Mariah revealed that the America's Got Talent host will appear on the show as well, but don't expect any drama.

"It's more like, he was coming to see the kids anyway so I was like, 'Do you mind being on the show?' and he was cool about it," Carey said. "It's just about being really nice with the other parent and not making it a competition or anything like that."

Mariah's World premieres December 4 at 9 p.m. ET on E!.
