Mel B and Murphy to wed

According to reports Eddie Murphy will wed former Spice Girl Mel B in September. Yes, you did read that correctly.

The pair met at a Beverly Hills party last month and after a whirlwind romance have already booked the plush Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles for their "dream wedding".

Mel and Hollywood star Murphy, who is 14 years her senior, are planning an intimate ceremony for friends and family.

Both Mel and Eddie have been married before. Mel had a three-year marriage with dancer Jimmy Gulzar, which ended in 2001, while Murphy divorced Nicole Mitchell Murphy, his wife of 12 years, in May.

A source revealed to the Daily Star: "Mel just wants her and Eddie.

"But they will be inviting their friends to a lavish wedding breakfast reception at the venue afterwards."

Any Comments?

If this is true, I am actually really amazed! I didn't think anything of it when I heard they were together because celebrity couples happen all the time and never last long. I didn't think marriage would be in the equation! ohmy.gif

True, but when Eddie Murphy first came onto the scene in the early 1980s he was compared to the comedy genius that was Richard Pryor.

Mel B 'enjoyed lesbian relationship'
Friday, April 27 2007, 10:07 BST By Nick Levine, Entertainment Reporter

Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown reportedly enjoyed a two-year relationship with a woman.

The singer is said to have ended the romance with a film executive known only as Christine because she did not want to settle down.

Brown's friend Christa Parker told Closer: "Mel told me they'd split because Christine wanted more commitment."

Parker also claimed that she enjoyed a brief romance with the pop star, saying: "We had drunk quite a lot and it was late, so Mel suggested I stay over.

"Mel started complaining that she hadn't had sex for a while and was feeling horny. Mel said she needed sex and asked me if I wanted to. I'd had a bit to drink and said yes."

Brown has previously said of her sexuality: "People can call me lesbian, bisexual or heterosexual, but I know who's in my bed and that's it - I have a huge libido and a great sex life."

It has been confirmed that Mel B is a contestant on the US Dancing With The Stars!

Mel B, Jane Seymour sign up for 'Dancing'
Wednesday, August 29 2007, 13:25 BST (08:25 ET)

By James Welsh, International Editor

'Good Morning America' / ABC
Scary Spice Girl Mel B is to compete in the American version of Strictly Come Dancing, it was announced today.

Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron and reigning champion Apolo Anton Ohno made the announcement on ABC's Good Morning America.

Competing with Mel B will be Jane Seymour, Marie Osmond, Wayne Newton, Floyd Mayweather, Helio Castroneves, 90210's Jennie Garth, All My Children alum Cameron Mathison, model Albert Reed, The Cheetah Girls' Sabrina Bryan, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, and Josie Maran.

Explaining why she signed up to the show, Jane Seymour told GMA: "My mum's very ill in England and this turns out to be her favourite show ever... I just couldn't give up learning something new at this point in my life from the best in the business."

"It's incredible family television and a dream come true," she added.

The new season will kick off with three opening shows: the Monday night will see the all-men performance, the women on Tuesday night, and the first elimination on the Wednesday. Dolly Parton has been lined up for the first musical guest spot, with Avril Lavigne and Gloria Estefan appearing later in the show's run.

Dancing with the Stars season five kicks off on September 24.

I just wonder how on earth she can fit in that along with tour rehersals and possibily promoting the Greatest Hits and Children In Need Single (if that is going ahead)!!!!!!!!!!!

Mel B Cha Cha Cha - Dancing With the Stars, Week 1
Tue, 25 September 2007

Melanie Brown, aka Scary Spice, prepares to take the stage on the hit ABC show Dancing With The Stars on Monday.

Her new husband, Stephen Belafonte, turned up to support his wife in the dance competition. Belafonte began swaying his hips in response to Mel B’s sneak peak dance routine. When asked if Stephen, whom she married in June, also dances, Mel B purred to OK! “For me, at nighttime, he does!”

Pictured below: 8-year-old Phoenix Chi and her 5-month-old baby Angel Iris.

Watch Mel B's Cha Cha Cha from Monday’s episode of Dancing With the Stars. Not too shabby!

Wow she was really good!!!

Posted by: designer_label Nov 3 2007, 07:09 PM

Mel B has revealed that her husband Stephen Belafonte has been supporting her progress on Dancing With The Stars.

The Spice Girl has been asking Belafonte to practise dance routines with her at their Hollywood home, and the extra training has helped Mel to land a place in the final six.

"I make him stand there and I dance around him," Mel told WENN. "He's terrible. But he's a good stand in - he's good at standing there and staying still."

It was recently claimed that Mel's success on the show was causing tension between the Spice Girls.


Posted by: designer_label Dec 23 2007, 04:59 PM

Mel B has been criticised for demanding a £10K fee to take part in a festive fundraiser, according to a report.

The Spice Girl made an appearance at Selfridges in London this week, singing festive songs and collecting donations from members of the public for the Make a Wish Foundation, which helps terminally ill children.

Before the event, Mel's US agents International Creative Management had negotiated the £10K payment for her trouble - which led to her being branded a Scrooge at the store.

"All Mel B did was sing a couple of Christmas songs, sign autographs and mingle with the crowd collecting donations in a plastic bucket," a Selfridges insider told the News of the World. "And for that she pocketed £10,000 that should have gone to needy kids.

"Many people felt she should have waived her fee. It's the least she could have done to help raise cash for the kids."

"Everyone was thrilled when Mel B agreed to appear," the source added. "With the Spice Girls in town for their tour it was a real coup to get her. It's shameful shoppers gave up their hard-earned cash yet here was a Spice Girl giving nothing."

Mel's agents ICM initially refused to comment on the newspaper's story. However, the singer's representatives have since had a rethink and announced that her fee will be donated to kids' hospitals in America.

Mel B's assets enhanced by Branson?

Former Spice Girl Mel B seeks plastic surgery to enhance her chest in a new cinema advert.

The animated commercial puts Scary Spice back into her trademark leopard print catsuit.

Gesturing at her chest, the Leeds-born singer, 33, tells a German plastic surgeon she wants to make a "big impression in Hollywood".

The surgeon - Sir Richard Branson in disguise - prescribes a movie service from Virgin Media to help her "stand out from zee udders".

Mel B said: "I'm over the moon with my animated alter ego and the advert really made me giggle. It's definitely fresh and original".

Mel B married film producer Stephen Belafonte in Las Vegas last summer following a whirlwind romance as he helped her over her split with actor Eddie Murphy.

The couple live in the Hollywood Hills with Mel B's daughters Phoenix Chi, nine, and Angel, 16 months.

Mel B found fresh fame in the US when she came second last year on the TV hit Dancing with the Stars.

Mel B swears on Live & Kicking

Posted by: Kryptonite Kiss Jan 7 2009, 09:24 PM

Mel B. is trying to expand her brand beyond the former Spice Girls image.

"Scary" Spice will soon be releasing her own fitness video. And it's gonna scare you into shape!

Forget "Master Cleansers" like Gwyneth Paltrow does, working out is the way to get healthy and in shape.

And, judging by Mel B.'s killer body, we'd say she knows a thing or two about staying fit.

So, starting nationwide this February 3rd, Mel's three-DVD set of workouts, called Totally Fit, will be available for purchase. Though if you can't wait til next month, you can buy the discs now on the official site.

According to the video's description:

TOTALLY FIT is definitely not your average workout DVD. Mel's presentation is fun, inspirational, motivating and presents the secrets to her success to anyone who wants to change both their lives and bodies, including all kinds of lifestyles and fitness levels. "For anyone with jubbily bits, I'm going to tighten you up, make you laugh and enjoy your work out no matter what level of fitness you are," says Mel B.

TOTALLY FIT breaks down Mel's straightforward approach to staying in shape into a simple 28-day plan. The workout includes a warm up and a strong full body cardio routine great for all levels of fitness. Thanks to Mel B's TOTALLY FIT cardio workout enjoy the added fat burning effects as you concentrate on shaping up those targeted areas, specifically your arms, legs, bums and tums. Enjoy a well-deserved cool down at the end of the disc.

This is more A Melanie C thing. But it's nice to know that she's busy in 2009 happy.gif

I just bought it and it really kills you! Deffo a good workout lol! Mel's really entertaining through it so it helps keep you motivated.

Posted by: BounceBounce08 Nov 12 2009, 11:42 AM

I don't think she did the best job out of all the celebrities to be honest!

She just disappeared in the evening to the gym and then didn't come back til late, could she seriously not live without the gym just for 7 days for the programme, no one else did it!

And what was with the giving a gym membership to the family, I'm sure the family had more important priorities than a gym membership and would have appreciated something more worthwhile!!!

Messy Spice part 3018389:

Anyway, onto the most recent issue. TMZ says that Sisterhood of Hip Hop star and rapper Siya was prepared to testify on behalf of Stephen in a future court date. Siya filed a police report yesterday claiming that Mel B pulled some Mafia Spice tactics and allegedly sent some intimidating texts to Siya strongly encouraging her to keep her mouth shut. Siya’s testimony would have allegedly contradicted any claims Mel B made that Stephen was an abusive asshole.

Siya was also going to testify about Mel B’s alleged drug use. On September 1st, Stephen Belafonte filed documents accusing Mel B of spicing up her life with cocaine and booze. Mel B vaguely denied the accusations, saying that she refuses “to be a victim” and that the truth would come out in court. If the text messages on Siya’s phone are true, it sounds like Mel B might have been afraid of what alleged truths Siya was going to expose in court.

TMZ says that Siya went to the police with the text messages, and police have reportedly opened a felony investigation against Mel B.

William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, LLC, also known as William Morris Endeavor, WME or WME-IMG, is an American talent agency with offices in Beverly Hills, California, United States.

Posted by: sammy01 Dec 9 2017, 01:00 PM

I read some Italian news report she has signed with a Warner to release an album too.

Posted by: Jay ☆ Dec 9 2017, 01:42 PM

I fear the Warner thing might be crossed wires (i.e. misinterpreting WME as being WMG).

Posted by: Alberto! Dec 9 2017, 01:42 PM

From what I see it's just someone misinterpreted the acronym for WME assuming it was warner Music and Entertainment or something. And WME is a talent agency, not a record label, so this wouldn't necessarily mean new music.
I really hope I'm wrong, but for the moment I'm keeping cautious.

Posted by: MARIAH. Dec 19 2017, 01:39 AM

It's been a long, tumultuous journey filled with battles over custody, spousal support and even sex tapes ... but Mel B and Stephen Belafonte are officially divorced. According to new legal docs ... a judge granted the dissolution of their marriage as of December 15. All that's left to work out now is the division of their property. (Source: TMZ)

Mel B's latest Instagram post:

After my fathers death nothing could touch me anymore,
For example, Ive felt all morning I have the devil on my shoulder whispering in my ear “ your not strong enough to handle the storm “ so after I finished my morning routine,cooking my kids breakfast and feeding my two frenchies and my 2 fainting goats thought hold on a minute stop 🛑 then I started yelling back to this diablo “ I AM the frigging storm “ boom.
People often say to me (amongst other things haha but I will address those things in another post) ,”oh Mel B your so strong”and I have to think to myself, yes I am strong, but listen I’m only strong because I’ve been incredibly weak and during that weak time I taught myself how to access my inner strength,and I did,listen In my life I have been through many different situations that not many people know about,Ive have been close to death literally and paralyzed with fear which in due course over time has made me fearless extremely fearless,Some say “oh that Mel B is Spontaneous and CRAZY” plzzzzz,to that I say nooooooo,it’s called living in your truth and following your inner voice and trusting and believing that you are guided even when logic would say otherwise.
I use to think I was the strangest person in the world,then I thought,come on now there are so many people in the world, there must be some people out there just like me who think like me and aren’t afraid to feel they feel bizarre and flawed in exactly the same way I do,and embrace it,I would imagine and still do there are many people out there thinking just like me and are exactly like me too. So I hope and pray if your out there and you need this message, yes it’s true,I’m here and we all find each other at the end of the day, credence and faith. That’s just the ways of the world and the law of attraction. Yes I am different and always will be. I’m not black and I’m not white and I’m not pink and I’m not green. In the words of Earth Kitt “I have no colour” boom,”and that is how barriers are broken.”
So be careful who you invite into your soul,surround yourself with people that are only going to take you higher whether that be spiritually or physically.

Mel B's second autobiography 'Brutally Honest' is coming out 27th November 2018:

As one-fifth of the iconic Spice Girls and judge on X Factor and America's Got Talent, Melanie Brown, a.k.a Scary Spice, has been an international star since her twenties. Brutally Honest is an exposé of the struggles and acute pain that lay behind the glamour and success.

With deep personal insight, remarkable frankness and trademark Yorkshire humour, the book removes the mask of fame and reveals the true story behind the Spice Girls, as well as the horror of her most recent marriage and her 10 year struggle to be free.

Brutally Honest? As if! Telling Lies would have been much more apt. heehee.gif

I wonder which genre it will be. Fiction, maybe? rolleyes.gif

Melanie Brown ?
If you told the person on the street that Melanie Brown has a book out, they wouldn't know who you mean !
She's good looking, but I don't like the photo or the pose either.

Mel B statement:

“The past six months have been incredibly difficult for me.I’ve been working with a writer on my book, Brutally Honest, and it has been unbelievably traumatic reliving an emotionally abusive relationship and confronting so many massive issues in my life from the death of my dad to my relationship with men.

I've also been through more than a year of court battles which have left me finacially battered and at the mercy of the legal system which is ocmpletely weighted against emotionally abused women because it's very hard to prove how someone took away all your self-respect and self-worth.

I am being very honest in my book about drinking to numb my pain but that is just a way a lot of people mask what is really going on.Sometimes it is too hard to cope with all the emotions I feel. But the problem has never been about sex or alcohol — it is underneath all that.

I have recently been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and on August 9, after trying many different therapies I started a course of therapy called EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) which in a nutshell works on the memory to deal with some of the very painful and traumatic situations I have been through.I don’t want to jinx it, but so far it’s really helping me. I am fully aware I am at a crisis point.

No-one knows myself better than I do. But I am dealing with it. I love my three girls more than life itself.I have also made the decision to go into a proper therapy programme in the next few weeks, but it has to be in the UK because I am very, very British and I know that will work best for me.

I am still struggling. But if I can shine a light on the issue of pain, PTSD and the things men and women do to mask it, I will do.I am speaking about this because this is a huge issue for so many people.I’m not perfect, and I have never pretended to be.

But I am working on being a better version of myself for my kids, for my family and for all the people who have supported me in my life."

She's one brave human being. Coping with all of that in front of the world's media must be extremely challenging.

Most would be tempted to hide away or give up. But she's still working so hard. I'm sure she'll come out the other side much stronger.

That's girl power right there! heart.gif

So sad for Melanie.....I hope she will recover soon!

Guys I am thinking to build up a Mel's timeline with all her solo projects. What do you think?

I think she looks great. She is in her 40's and doesn't need to look like she's in her 20's all the time.

Has anyone else read this yet? I finished earlier this week. Spoilers ahead!

Firstly, I have to say the book's structure is quite unusual in that it's not written in any sort of chronological order. One moment you can be reading about Stephen, and then she jumps back to mentioning a situation with Jimmy, and suddenly you're back to her childhood. I think if you were reading it without having much knowledge about Mel to begin with, it'd be a bit of a disorientating read.

The main focus of the book is most certainly on dysfunctional relationships and signs of abuse, so it's understandably quite a heavy read. I'm glad that she has put her side out and explained how she felt/coped/reacted to various moments.

Everything regarding Stephen was my least favourite element of Brutally Honest, although I appreciate that this relationship is essentially the whole point of this book. I have to say, I struggled to ultimately understand why on earth she ever got involved with him, to the extent of marrying him within 2 months of meeting him. She says she felt vulnerable after having her baby and feeling burned by Eddie, but she doesn't give the impression that she loved Stephen in the run up to the marriage taking place. I think she implied that it was a bit of a rebound thing, to send a message to Eddie that she'd moved on. She says she didn't feel attracted to him in the run up to their marriage. The book doesn't really explain properly at what stage she genuinely felt that she was in love with Stephen (and she does say she was in love with him). Idk, the dynamics of their early relationship didn't feel fleshed out enough to get a true understanding of what she saw in him before it all went wrong.

I have to say in regards to her relationship with Stephen, the book does meander around describing rather similar situations between them, throughout... dare I say at points that made for a bit of a boring read. One of two of the scenarios could easily have been cut and you'd still have more than got the impression that their relationship was an awful time for her.

I think what I most enjoyed about the book was regarding her pre-fame years - more about her family/background and her drive/aspirations towards becoming famous. I can't remember to what depth she went into this in her 2002 book, but a lot of it seemed like new information to me! It's a shame she lost contact with her family for so many years... I think us fans knew over the past decade how strange that situation was, the warning signs really were there all along.

There wasn't too much about the Spice Girls really, although what was mentioned was quite interesting - particularly in regards to the 2007/8 reunion and how things ended up being a bit strained between the girls (Stephen being the root of the problem). Mel blames herself for the tour ending early, and she even says that they ended on a low point, rather than them "going out on a high". She takes the opportunity to apologise to the girls over it, so things must have been rather bad between them for her to feel the need to do that. There's also a moment Mel describes that happened on tour which is rather harrowing, I won't spoil that, but it's not nice to think back to that tour and realise that it wasn't a very happy time for her, when it really should have been.

Everything regarding her time with Eddie Murphy was pretty interesting to read, given that she'd never previously discussed him in any great depth beforehand. I'm kind of surprised that she refers to him as being the love of her life (as she has done in TV interviews too), because judging by her account of their time together he was quite unreasonable in certain respects, and then he was cruel to her at the end of the relationship (as we all know, re: him casting doubt on whether Mel's baby was his).

She didn't mention For Once In My Life! cry.gif ( laugh.gif ). In fact she didn't go into much depth about her solo career at all, a bit about her TV work (although mentions of X Factor and America's Got Talent were more in relation to how her personal life was going while on the shows), but nothing about music.

There was a few typos, and there was one situation that was all wrong in terms of time-frame. I'd have gladly offered my services as a proof reader before this was published! kink.gif

Overall I enjoyed it, at least as far as you can enjoy a book that describes some pretty horrific circumstances.

I'm getting the book for Christmas. I am looking forward to finding out more of her story.

Posted by: dannjohn Dec 31 2018, 10:34 AM

the typos in this book are outrageous considering the team of people she has behind her...

she also seems to really overplay her relationship with victoria... i know victoria is closer with the girls then the press let on but i feel like in the book, mel really oversaturates.

Posted by: TomHo Jan 4 2019, 01:10 AM

I'm really enjoying the book so far. I feel so bad for what she has been through. The writer has done a really good job of capturing Mel's essence with the writing.

Posted by: Spiceboy Jan 4 2019, 03:37 PM

I feel like the last book captured Mel's essence alot more than this one does. Enjoying the read so far though.

Ah I see, I didn't realise she had done books previously.

I have listened to both of her albums recently and I think that her music is very under rated. There are quite a few gems on her albums.

Also For Once In My Life deserved some success, the video is amazing, I love when she kisses herself.

To me, Mel B is the sexiest Spice Girl.

Yeah Catch A Fire, it's fantastic my favourite of all the girls autobiographies.

I agree her albums have some real gems, I do prefer her second one though there's something really summery and laid back about it. The first one I liked but it doesn't quite work as a whole body of art.

FDOML is epic, that kiss is cringey as hell though. laugh.gif
