Still remember this as if it was yesterday :inlove:

Too funny, too cute, too sweet, and too spot on for words

They immediately understood what the male presenter was about

And refreshing to watch one of the few Italian TV stars who can actually master some decent English

They were really feeling comfortable with her and making a case for the bloated middle aged midget to be suppressed stat

Love the Dita inspiration for the gold tooth

And many other mini Madonna moments both in the Spice Girls as well as in their solo careers

You can sense all the influence Madonna had on them personally, before they replied to that ad

Surprisingly, Vicky B got an OBE yesterday for God knows what but, thanks to David's recent revelations of just doing charity work to try and become a sir, she couldn't turn this into a media circus! :rotfl:I bet she's fuming.

She got it for her very successful fashion label and for being a UN goodwill ambassador focusing on paediatric HIV/AIDS.  Very well deserved

You mean that UN role she got which she decided to announce on the same day she got David to open her new shop? So using sick children to promote her crappy clothing company?

vile woman, vile couple!

She didn't "announce" anything - David and her parents showed up for the opening but there wasn't even press there.  It was really low key and she didn't even mention it until interviewers brought it up weeks later.  Both events are huge and it's not like she could've delayed one or the other.  And the only time she used "sick children to promote her crappy clothing company" was when she put out a tshirt for World AIDS Day last year with all the proceeds going to UNAIDS, whom she's worked with for years.  With that same logic you can argue that Madge used her Tears of a Clown fundraiser to get herself headlines and to promote the Rebel Heart Tour on Showtime tbh

and I'm assuming you know very little about fashion cuz her "crappy" clothing "company" gets regular acclaim from the super tough fashion press and celebs are always wearing her clothes.  Lest we forget Madonna was the first celebrity to wear one of her dresses in W

Mel B's nanny Lorraine Gilles says she was seduced into threesome by former Spice Girl NOT her husband

The former childminder alleges that she and Mel had a seven-year sexual affair

By Emmeline Saunders, 23 APR 2017

PROD-Lorraine-Giles.jpg

In the aftermath of Mel B's allegations against estranged husband Stephen Belafonte, her former nanny has stepped forward to make some shocking counter-claims.

Lorraine Gilles, who was employed by the married couple aged just 18 in 2009, has filed court documents that allege Mel was the one who seduced her – and that she and Belafonte never slept together without Mel's knowledge.

She also confirmed she did have an abortion in 2014, but said she fell pregnant to a one-night stand, not Stephen, as Mel had claimed in her own documents.

Gilles claimed that Mel had seduced a "naive and curious 18-year old" with "alcohol, fame and casual sex" shortly after Lorraine had arrived in the States, and that their sexual relationship continued for seven years.

Her court documents claim: "From the onset, Brown and Gilles developed a friendship and sexual relationship with one another that was separate and apart from Brown's relationship with her husband.

"Brown explained to Gilles that she and her husband had an open relationship."

Lorraine's legal team allege that Mel's previous claims - filed in order for her to take out a temporary restraining order against both Belafonte and Gilles - portrayed her as "a home wrecker, prostitute, and extortionist, maliciously describing Gilles as being impudent, unscrupulous and exploitative".

Mel B has just left with £961

Mel B 'forced to ask her friends for money to help her buy a house'... after blowing her £38 million fortune on 'extravagant lifestyle' and Stephen Belafonte divorce

By MailOnline Reporter

Published: 09:46 BST, 9 July 2017  | Updated: 12:26 BST, 9 July 2017

Mel B has resorted to asking her friends for money following her financial woes and costly divorce from Stephen Belafonte, new reports claim.

According to the Mirror, the former Spice Girl has put down a six-figure deposit on a lavish £1.5million mansion in LA - but is afraid she will lose it, if she cannot drum up the remaining amount needed to pay for the pad.

Having reportedly blown her £38 million fortune on her 'extravagant lifestyle', a source revealed that she has now 'turned to pals' for financial help, in the hope they will save her from losing any more money.

420AB6C700000578-0-image-a-32_1499589680

Earlier this month it was reported the 42-year-old had just £961 in one of her bank accounts, after squandering the £38million fortune earned from her pop career.

Only making matters worse, it is now believed that Mel is struggling to find cash to pay off her new £1.5million home - and is having to call on her friends to help.

A source revealed to the paper: 'It’s well-known Mel’s finances are not great, but if the house deal falls through she’ll be in an even worse situation.

'She just can’t afford to lose any more cash. So she’s turned to pals in her hour of need and they’re trying their best to help.'

The expensive move is only made more stressful by the fact that she is struggling to sell her previous home, which she shared with ex Stephen Belafonte until their split in February.

The pair put their property on the market in March for £7.2million, but reduced the price by a whopping £800,000 two weeks later.

The house is still on the market. MailOnline has contacted representatives of Mel for comment.

The reports come after it was claimed the Spice Girls star has just £961 left in one of her company accounts.

Mel's British account Moneyspider Productions, which was set up in 1997, holds the small amount of funds, as revealed by The Sunday People.

Its nature of business is listed as 'Sound recording and music publishing activities'

A source told the Mirror: 'Mel is an international superstar, still working as a judge on America’s Got Talent, but she only has a small amount of money in the bank, according to Companies House. People may be very surprised.'

Mel also owns 20% of Spice Girls Limited which held £109,987 as of August 31, 2016. Her fellow bandmates own the remainder. 

She owns 16% of Octopus Direct along with the other Spice Girls and music mogul Simon Fuller.

It held £10,549 as of August 31, 2016.

The singer's money woes were revealed when she attended court in Los Angeles on Friday for the first time to face Stephen, who she says subjected her to years of physical and mental abuse.

The pair both have outstanding tax debts after making 'improvident' lifestyle choices, Los Angeles Superior Court was told.

She was revealed to be making between £147, 000 and £150,000 a month.

Belafonte, who claims his income is zero, is asking for backdated wages of around £90,000, an estimated £1,729 in perks, around £54,000 in spousal support and more than £150,000 to pay for his ongoing legal costs.

His lawyer, Grace Jamra, asked Judge Lawrence Riff to order the sale of the couple's Los Angeles home if necessary. It is currently on the market for just over £6 million.

She said: 'Their lifestyle was extravagant and affluent.

'She wiped out all her Spice Girls money, approximately $50 million (£38 million) if not more'

In exclusive DailyMail.com pictures Mel looked confident as she strode into the downtown LA court building in black pants, a white shirt, lace tie and a pair of trendy black shades.

Flanked by her legal reps, the pop star stayed quiet as she entered the building.

The former couple, who were married for 10 years, are battling over money and custody of their child.

Jacalyn Davis, representing Mel, spoke of their tax problems, saying they were 'sustained through improvident lifestyle choices'.

'They never had money at the end of the year to pay their taxes,' she added.

'All their community income was being spent and then some.

'In this marriage that would be Miss Brown's income from the Spice Girls.

'Prickly things happen when the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) doesn't get paid.'

On Friday, Judge Riff told the former couple he was 'sorry they engaged in such a rancorous fight' as he concluded the spousal support hearing.

He postponed his decision on whether Stephen will be granted a total of $118,000 (£90,000) in spousal support - backdated to March - until Wednesday.

Judge Riff's decision to postpone came at the end of a bad-tempered hearing that lasted over two and a half hours - split into two sessions. 

Neither Mel nor Stephen spoke during the lengthy hearing, and both refused to comment afterwards.

Attorney Larry Bakman, who is acting for Mel in a parallel domestic violence case against Stephen told DailyMail.com that he cannot comment until Judge Riff has made his order regarding spousal support.

He said: 'No - I will comment when we get the order. I have no idea [of the result]. No idea at all which way the chips are going fall.'

Lawyers for both parties will return to LA's Stanley Mosk courthouse on Wednesday to collect an order detailing the judge's decision.

Mel previously won a temporary restraining order after arguing her husband is abusive and has links to the porn industry.

Her lawyers claimed he was a danger to their child as a 'convicted domestic violence offender' with an 'extensive criminal history'.

Ms Jamra argued the allegations were part of 'an ongoing smear campaign'.

But Judge Riff ruled Stephen could only see five-year-old Madison twice a week at a supervised center.

Brown, now a judge on America's Got Talent, married the film producer in Las Vegas in June 2007.

She filed for divorce on March 20, citing 'irreconcilable differences'.

Mel earlier obtained a temporary restraining order against Belafonte accusing him of mental and physical abuse, taking millions of dollars from her and forcing her into threesome sex, in explosive court papers.

The TV presenter also described how she was once so desperate she took an overdose.

And she also accuses her husband of having an affair with their nanny Lorraine Gilles which resulted in the woman becoming pregnant.

She said in the filing earlier this year: 'I have tried to leave the Respondent many times. Every time I tried, the Respondent threatened me with violence and threatened to destroy my life in every way.'

Stephen has denied the claims and said that he has been set up and made to look like a 'bad guy.'

Stephen, a producer, has claimed to be homeless, in debt and without income following the break-up of the marriage.

While he was granted access to Madison, Stephen lost his battle to regain contact with Mel's daughter Angel, who was born three months before the pair's wedding in 2007. She is the daughter of Eddie Murphy, but carries Belafonte's name. 

Mel filed for divorce on March 20 and said in court papers that she was the victim of 'multiple physical beatings' at the hands of her husband.

She also claimed he threatened to 'destroy' her career by releasing sex tapes of her. Lawyers for Stephen have branded the allegations 'outrageous and unfounded', and 'nothing more than a smear campaign'

Mel also secured a five-year restraining order against the couple's former nanny Gilles.
