Mel B Gets Her Own Show on Style Network
Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown has landed her own reality TV show on the Style Network. Billed as a "docu-comedy" the show, provisionally entitled 'The Mel B Project,' will follow her day-to-day life with second husband, producer Stephen Belafonte, and her two children from previous relationships.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Style has initially ordered 10 episodes of the show, which will start airing in the US in September. Salaam Coleman Smith, President of Style Network, described their latest reality star as "confident, hilarious, and outrageously entertaining."
A longtime tabloid favorite in the UK, Mel B shot to stardom in the 1990s as a member of the Spice Girls, and later found fame in the US as a contestant on the fifth season of 'Dancing With the Stars' when she and he and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy finished second. Earlier this week she walked the red carpet at the 'Shrek Forever After' premiere with former flame Eddie Murphy, and it's been rumored this will feature as an episode in the upcoming show.
Mel B's reality show stablemates at The Style Network include Kimora Lee and Giuliana and Bill Rancic.
