Ex Spice Girl, Mel B, has signed a reported $1 million deal to co-host Australia’s Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) alongside Daniel MacPherson.  Mel, whose actual name is Melanie Brown, will grace the show with her effervescence and be in charge of the green room interviews when the new season begins.  She replaces Sonia Kruger who moved on to host the ‘Down Under’ version of the reality show Big Brother.

Mel was a DWTS contestant stateside in 2007.  The former Scary Spice who was a favorite on the widely popular dance show made it to the season finale and wound up taking second place.

In 2010, Mel’s now defunct reality show, Mel B: It’s a Scary World followed her everyday life with daughters Phoenix, Angel and husband Stephen Belafonte.  Angel is the daughter of famed comedian Eddie Murphy.

Murphy began dating Mel just two months after his divorce from ex-wife Nicole Mitchell. Reportedly, he suddenly — and without warning — called off his relationship with Mel five months into her pregnancy and initially denied paternity because of the short-lived nature of their romance. The funny-man chose to totally disassociate himself from Mel throughout the rest of her pregnancy with his child.

It was widely reported that the reason why the father of eight gave Mel the cold-shoulder during her pregnancy was that he was waiting for the birth of the child in order to have a DNA test to prove paternity.  Two months after Angel’s birth, a DNA test proved that Murphy was indeed the father of Mel’s baby and the couple soon became embroiled in an extremely bitter and public war of words over the child.  Murphy, who wound up reimbursing Mel for her pregnancy costs, remained noticeably absent in the child’s life until she was age 3-years-old.  The exes have since mended their relationship.

Mel, who has been quoted as saying that she finds dancing “intoxicating” was also a judge on the Aussie version of The X Factor. After welcoming a third daughter to her family last September, Mel now plans on uprooting her brood from Los Angeles to Australia.

The 36-year-old performer, who hails from Leeds, England says, that she and her family have embraced Australia and think that life is actually better there than in L.A.  “I feel like it’s going to be my Aussie, Sydney year,” she revealed to Female First Magazine.
