As she praises her new husband, Melanie Brown is still insulting her ex-boyfriend, Eddie Murphy. It's not hard to read between the bitter lines in an interview this Spice Girl recently gave Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine.

"He is a man [and] I don't think I've had a man before," Brown said of Stephen Belafonte. "Normally I'm the man."

So, what's the best quality of this amazing man? According to Brown, it's the fact that he makes her feel less like a Spice Girl and more like a Spice Lady: "He makes me feel like a woman, a lady."

Will Brown and Belafonte now make like Brangelina and add to their brood (which includes Phoenix, 9, and Angel, 11 months). According to Melanie:

"Definitely. If it had been up to me, I would have had five kids by the age of 20."

The Spice Girls kicked off their reunion tour last night in Vancouver.

A certain Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder was among those in attendance, although most screams heard throughout the evening were actually not directed at David Beckham for a change.

Great Britan's The Sun reviewed the concert and said reported that Posh Spice "was her fabulous self" and even sang a few short solos; Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice) was the strongest singer; and Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) "looked just as bubbly and blonde as ever."

The newspaper also reported that Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) performed her solo hit remake of "It's Raining Men," while Melanie Brown (Scary Spice) showed off some post-Dancing with the Stars gyrations during her solo performance of Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way."

"Just as it was ten years ago, the show wasn't about great singing or dancing. But it was about great entertainment," The Sun wrote. "And the girls delivered the spice."

Almost as well as the paper delivered that pun.

Another week of Dancing with the Stars, another perfect score for Melanie Brown and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

With Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas out of the competition, these two are clearly the favorites; although Jennie Garth has been coming on strong lately and performed well again last night.

At the program's end, Jane Seymour and All My Children star Cameron Mathison seemed most vulnerable. His energetic jive could save him after a disappointing quickstep, but even Seymour's cha cha cha may not be enough to stop viewers from bidding her farewell.

As for Mel B's paso doble? Bruno Tonioli said: "My jaw was on the desk... Top that!"

We mentioned the perfect score awarded on Dancing with the Stars last night.

Now, here's a look at the rumba routine that earned Melanie Brown and Maksim Chmerkovskiy a 30 from the panel of judges:

The Spice Girls may be reuniting for a slew of concerts in the near future.

But talk of Spice Kids is going strong right now.

For Emma Bunton, however, that talk has turned into an actual child. The appropriately nicknamed "Baby Spice" has become a mother for the first time, squeezing out a boy named Beau earlier today.

Bunton's boyfriend, Jade Jones, couldn't be more excited about his new son. He sounds like a quality, Larry Birkhead-like father already.

Speaking outside London's Portland Hospital, Jones said: "He is absolutely brilliant, and both baby and Emma are doing fine. In fact Emma is tucking into some flapjacks and Coca-Cola as we speak."

Meanwhile, Melanie Brown is talking about having more children.

According to People, she told Larry King that her and new husband Stephen Belafonte hope to have more kids â€" in addition to the three they already have between them.

"Yeah, I'd like to, of course," Brown said, in response King asking her about having more kids.

Besides 4-month-old daughter Angel Iris, whose father is Eddie Murphy, Brown is the mother of daughter Phoenix Chi, 8, from her marriage to dancer Jimmy Gulzar. Belafonte also has a daughter, Giselle, 3, from a previous relationship.

Add these to the three sons of Victoria Beckham and the Spice Kids could almost start their own baseball team.

Wow. And we thought it was news that Bruce Willis has a new girlfriend named Karen McDougal.

Spice Girl Melanie Brown has shot that piece of celebrity news off the front page by actually getting married to music producing boyfriend Stephen Belafonte. Two months ago. We can't say we saw this one coming.

The couple apparently tied the knot on June 6, according to a marriage license filed in Clark County. This was before Brown went off on Eddie Murphy for failing to pay child support for the daughter they created together.

In a statement to People, Brown's rep said: "Regarding the marriage, Mel and Stephen have know each other for many years and were great friends first. Now they are deeply in love. The two are very happy together."

Well, that's good. We just wonder how Blake Fielder-Civil feels about Belafonte perhaps taking over as the most popular, random husband in Hollywood.

According to Scary Spice, all the celebrity gossip attention doesn't bother her new beau: "We don't really play into that world. We just have our own little thing going on."

And that "thing" is now a union as official as that of Usher and Tameka Foster.

Melanie Brown has learned a lot from Brynn Cameron:

Complain to celebrity gossip reporters about your lazy baby's daddy and watch the money pour in!

Scary Spice, however, has taken it up a notch from lessons learned from the former girlfriend of Matt Leinart: she and her lawyer Gloria Allred, addressed ongoing paternity issues with Eddie Murphy during a press conference yesterday.

People reports that Allred, who claims that Murphy "has not paid one penny of child support" for the former couple's daughter, said she plans to ask the court to award child support and "to decide what is reasonable."

Allred said she has filed a paternity case against Murphy to legally establish that he is the father of their nearly 4-month-old daughter, Angel Iris Murphy Brown, a celebrity baby with far less air time than Sean Preston or Jayden James.

"We've had communication with his attorney, and now we're moving forward," she said at the press conference. The papers are sealed because they concern a child, she added.

"[The fiance of Tracey Edmonds] was promising to do the right thing, but to date he has not done the right thing," said Allred. "Mr. Murphy can have all the babies he chooses to have, but his responsibility needs to be to his own children. [Brown] is seeking sole physical and legal custody."

Allred referred to the "big diamond ring" Murphy bought Edmonds as proof that this actor is very well off... despite the performance of Norbit at the box office.

Brown, wearing a white dress and trying to look at innocent as Jessica Simpson, told the gathered reporters:

"I am here for one reason and one reason only â€" her name is Angel. Angel is my baby and Eddie's. She will always know that she was planned and wanted by both of us, but I want her to know that she has two parents who desire to be responsible for her during her life and who love her so much that they want to be a part of it."

Brown gave birth to the baby girl on April 3. She said from the beginning that Murphy was the father, but he reacted oppositely from Larry Birkhead, initially questioned that claim. He finally took the DNA test in June.

Stop hogging all the Spice Girls' headlines, Victoria Beckham! Scary Spice has something to say...

Melanie Brown says that ex-boyfriend Eddie Murphy not only knew about the baby the couple made together, but had promised to marry her after the birth of their now 3-month-old daughter.

"This was a completely planned pregnancy," Brown said, as reported by People magazine. "This wasn't some random, 'Oops I fell over and I'm pregnant.' I don't live my life like that. I'm a responsible parent and have been a responsible single parent since I got divorced."

The singer then got into detail regarding how, like Usher and Tameka Foster, her and Murphy conceived: "As soon as I had my IUD removed we proceeded to get pregnant. It happened quicker than we expected but it was perfect timing."

Well, maybe not perfect. You know, considering Murphy denied he was the father of Angel Iris Murphy until a DNA test proved it.

Like Larry Birkhead must have felt at someone actually not wanting to be a dad, Brown says that seeing the Dutch TV clip sparked a variety of reactions.

"I laughed because that wasn't the guy that I knew who told me he wanted to have a baby and get married," she said. "I just didn't believe it. When I saw it my heart dropped down to my gut."

In the end, though, Brown cryptically talked about the differences in her and Eddie's lifestyles.

"I have a house where it's about my kids and me. I don't have people knocking on my door at 3 and 4 in the morning."

We know that sounds shady, but it was probably just Lindsay Lohan wanting to know if Murphy was interested in a drunken, late-night drive.
