YIKES. What the hell is this look, bodybuilder-chic? Whatever it is, I’m definitely not on board with it (ha, get it? I said “on board,” and Mel B. and a dude are “on board” a boat. Lame, yeah, I know, but it’s Thursday afternoon despite the fact that my brain feels like it’s 6 AM on a Saturday instead).

Anyway, this is Melanie Brown, AKA Scary Spice, AKA Mel B., and not Mel C., as she was announced on the ‘X-Factor’ UK earlier this week, much to her chagrin.

From the Daily Star:

Spice Girl Mel B was left red-faced when she was introduced to the X Factor crowds as her bandmate Mel C.

The singer is a guest judge at auditions in Manchester.

But she was embarrassed by one of the show’s production crew who dropped a clanger by announcing: “Please welcome Mel C!”

Fans who had queued for hours to sit in the audience knowing Mel B, 37, would be joining the panel thought a Spice Girls reunion was on the cards.

But they were disappointed when the member of staff corrected himself. One onlooker said: “It was a bit awkward, everyone looked around for Mel C. The poor guy realised he’d made a mistake but Mel didn’t look pleased!”

Well that sucks. All those fans thinking that the Spice Girls were going to do an impromptu reunion show only to be let down in a major, major way? Gosh. I know how that feels, guys. I’ve totally been there.

Last, what is that guy even doing? Holding her upright so she doesn’t tip over BECAUSE SHE’S SO TOP-HEAVY?

As for Mel’s new look, what do you guys think?

Paris Attends Venice Film Festival With Cardboard Cutout

58238328parishilton972009110806am

Paris appeared at the Venice Film Festival this weekend with her on-again boyfriend, Doug Reinhardt.  Doug was looking very two-dimensional and was airbrushed within an inch of his life.

There were a few other notables there, but I’m willing to bet attendance was down at this year’s festival.  Damn economy.  I’m really, really hoping Eva Mendes hasn’t fallen off the wagon since her rehab stint, but ahhh … well, you can judge for yourself.  Mel Brown was looking very pink and Matt Damon was looking very goofy.  Nicolas Cage — don’t you love it when people get all familiar with him and refer to him as “Nick?” — and a very androgynous looking Tilda Swinton were there as well.
