Simon Cowell has always had a way with the ladies. He’s been blessed with a gift to make them scream without even taking their pants off. And then they leave right after without having to be asked. Current costar judge Mel B on America’s Got Talent was his latest victim. Simon in full Simon form commented on Mel B’s marriage. The marriage failed and she owes her ex-husband monthly alimony payments. It’s safe to say she might not be into dealing with men at the moment. And not just because she looked like a Mad Max technicolor discount dyke on the show.
Mel B had one dramatic night on Tuesday’s America’s Got Talent live show, when she and judge Simon Cowell got into a bit of a quarrel that led to the former Spice Girls star tossing her water in his face. ET’s Denny Directo caught up with Mel B backstage after the show, where she opened up on her frequent clashes with her fellow judge. “He should know, if you say something inappropriate he’s gonna get like, stuff thrown at him,” she explained. “In a friendly way,” she added quickly. “I made sure there was no ice in it this time… just fizzy water.”
Being sensitive is not why Simon secured a seat on the show. If being pleasant and respectful of others got ratings, cable TV would look a lot like Tumblr. Drama has been selling for centuries. Ask Shakespeare. No article of clothing was harmed during the event. The contents of the cup was only carbonated water. And things between Simon and Mel are cordial for now. The next time Mel B squirts on Simon Cowell it better be the NSFW version. Drama sells well, but sex sells even better. I’m glad these two can go back to breaking contestants hearts together. Who else has the balls to deny the 100th singer whose loved one has a terminal illness? You say prize money and a record deal would completely cover the cost of cancer treatment? Well, you can’t hit a high note, McDonalds is hiring. Good luck.
