Now, Spice Girls star Mel B has voiced her opinion.

The feisty singer turned media personality shared her take on the drama during a guest stint on The Real this week.

Interestingly, she was actually in attendance co-hosting the Dick Clark special when everything went down.

Sister Of Spice Girls Singer Mel B Slams Star’s Husband Over ‘X Factor’ Disappearance

mel-b-that-grape-juice-2014-900

Earlier this week, viewers of ITV’s ‘X Factor UK’ learned former judge Tulisa Contostavlos was to stand in for judge Mel B, called on to replace the ‘Spice Girls’ performer after she had fallen ill.

Today, they learned she was to return to the series for its final. Unfortunately, if tweets published by the star’s sister are to be believed, the general public knew more about Mel’s disappearance than her family did, prompting her to slam the star’s husband Stephen Belafonte.

Hot Shot: Cheryl Cole & Mel B Shine On ‘X Factor’ Panel

xfactor-2014-panel

The X Factor UK charges back onto the box this Summer and promises to be quite the “must-see”.

In looking to ensure that’s more than editorial rhetoric, the show’s producers have refreshed the judges panel – welcoming back creator Simon Cowell and Pop force Cheryl Cole (following their initial departure in 2010). Completing the 2014 line-up is Scary Spice Mel B, who replaces Nicole Scherzinger, and sole original Louis Walsh.

Though set to start airing in August, the ITV1 show saw its first filmed auditions take place today in Manchester – hence the first photo opp for the new panel.

**************

Looking good. Here’s hoping their critiques pack an equally enticing punch. Because, there exists ample irony in the fact (yes, fact), that the two “singers” on the panel struggle with the first four letters of that very word. We do love Mel, though. Who doesn’t?!

Eddie Murphy Ordered To Pay $10 Million In Child Support

Eddie Murphy Ordered To Pay $10 Million In Child Support
After a lengthy court battle with ex Eddie Murphy, Spice Girl Mel B has reason to celebrate – Murphy has been ordered to pay a whopping $10 Million in child support to the singer over the next 16 years:
Los Angeles, CA (CNS) – Eddie Murphy has been ordered to pay his ex-girlfriend Mel B $50,000 a month for child support to their 22-month-old daughter Angel Iris.
An L.A. court ordered the 47-year-old funnyman to pay approximately $51,700 per month until Angel reaches 18 years old, which would total about $10.3 million.
He has also finally agreed to see his daughter.
Murphy and Mel B – real name Melanie Brown – have spent 15 months fighting in the Los Angeles courts. Both signed non-disclosure contracts, preventing them from discussing the settlements in public.
Murphy originally questioned the paternity of the child, while publicly dumping the former Spice Girl in a 2006 impromptu interview, saying, “I don’t know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test. You shouldn’t jump to conclusions, sir.”
DNA test proved that he is indeed the father.
Angel Iris Murphy Brown was born on April 3, 2007, which is coincidentally also Murphy’s birthday. {Source}
I guess justice has been served. Yet, in saying that, many – including myself – will forever find it hard to look at Eddie in the same way again. What kind of person refuses to see their own daughter, even after the DNA test. SMH…

New Song: Mel B – ‘Who’s Is It’

*The comment section is currently experiencing some technical difficulties. We hope to have the issue resolved within the hour.*

Former Spice Girl Mel B has been in the studio for several months now prepping her latest solo assault on the music scene. This new track ‘Who’s Is It’, which was produced by Scott Storch, is said to be a track from the as yet untitled set. Though the production really does bite off the Pop/Electro/Urban fused sound that has been all the rage for the last few years, it’s the best thing about the otherwise terrible song. Mel, no doubt, has a great personality and whatnot, but this is a big reminder that she could never sing…that well. What’s more the lyrics are just…blah. Times have changed since her last major attempt at solo success and so have expectations. This crap just isn’t going to cut it.

Hit or Miss?

Official: Eddie Murphy & Tracy Edmonds Marry

Following much speculation, it has been confirmed that actor Eddie Murphy and longtime girlfriend Tracy Edmonds tied the knot yesterday. See the story below via PEOPLE.com:

Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds were married on New Year’s Day on a private island off Bora Bora in French Polynesia in front of 25 friends and family, their reps tell PEOPLE.

In a sunset ceremony on the beach Tuesday, Edmonds walked barefoot down the aisle to Gladys Knight’s “Makings of You.” The bride wore a custom-designed form-fitting dress by stylist and designer Sugia Nazel and Jill Baracci, designer and owner of Baracci boutique.

Murphy wore a cream suit and vest with an off-white handkerchief.

Among the guests were best man Johnny Gill, maid of honor Nicole Avant, matron of honor Julie Lev, as well as Edmonds’s parents Jacqueline and George McQuarn, her brother Michael, Murphy’s mother Lillian Lynch and his brother Vernon.

Hmmm. How Tracy has managed to look over Eddie’s callousness in the Mel B situation is beyond me. Kinda says a lot about her, unless there’s something we don’t know…
