Mel B wants reality show to show “crazy family life” with husband Stephen Belafonte is marital bliss
The X Factor judge is reportedly keen to star in a warts-and-all show similar to It’s a Scary World, which aired five years ago, as she bids to quash split rumours
After all the drama of the past few months, you’d think Mel B would be keen to lie low for a bit. But the X Factor judge is planning exactly the opposite by reviving a fly-on-the-wall reality show about her personal life.
Sources say Scary Spice is keen to let the cameras back in – as she did five years ago for warts-and-all Mel B: It’s a Scary World.
And, lets face it, there’s likely to be plenty of material.
There were rumours of domestic violence and talk she was ready to divorce husband of seven years Stephen Belafonte. But Mel insists her marriage is solid and is happy to prove it.
She said: “I’d definitely be open to doing It’s a Scary World again. It’s just crazy family life everyone relates to”.
There’s no doubt it would be utterly gripping.
One TV boss said:
“Mel’s show would make Keeping Up With the Kardashians with Kim and co look like something from CBBC. Mel’s one of the hottest properties on telly with a personal life to match – and an access-all-areas show would be TV gold”.
It’s A Scary World starred Mel and Stephen, both now 39, and Mel’s daughters Phoenix and Angel. It focused on her life as a businesswoman, wife and mum and also dealt with her feelings about Angel’s father, A-lister Eddie Murphy.
Since then, Mel’s made a triumphant comeback as a judge on X Factor. She was praised for her style and regularly beat fellow judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini in the weekly “fashion-offs”.
Mel admits they have a fiery relationship but says Stephen is the love of her life. Recently she’s used social media to show unity and now it seems she’s offering the inside story.
