US Television to Get Spicier This Summer

Looks like women's television will be getting a little spicier (or scarier?) as Mel B takes on not one, but two gigs this summer.

Melanie Brown -- formerly known as Scary Spice -- will be hosting the second season of the Oxygen dance/weight-loss competition series Dance Your Ass Off. Brown will be replacing former host Marissa Jaret Winokur when the show returns on Monday June 7 at 11pm.

It was also announced that Brown will be filming a new reality show for the Style Network slated to air in early September 2010. The Mel B Project will follow the singer/host/actress/lady around Los Angeles as she juggles her career and family life. Her husband Stephen Belafonte and two daughters, Phoenix and Angel, will also be featured on the show.

Ever since I yelled into the back of Mel B's hair a few years ago I've been waiting to see her on a regular basis (um, you know, since we're friends.) I always said that NBC missed the mark by not turning Victoria Beckham: Coming to America into a full series, but at least another former Spice Girl is getting in with American TV audiences.

What do you think? Will you watch Mel B on Dance Your Ass Off or her new reality show The Mel B Project? Leave a comment!
