MEL B. TO REPLACE SHARON OSBORNE ON AMERICA'S GOT TALENT

cary Spice Girl Mel B is taking over from Sharon Osbourne on America's Got Talent - and will leave NBC with one finger on the panic button as she joins outspoken Howard Stern and Howie Mandel on live TV.

The mum-of-three, 37, will join auditions for the talent show in Los Angeles this month, a source confirmed.

Mel has long been a favourite of show boss Simon Cowell, and was a popular stand-in judge on the X Factor UK last year.
America’s Got Talent is set to undergo a revamp for season 8 after ratings dipped in last September’s finale.


The show - which is the world’s biggest selling TV format - moved to New York from Los Angeles especially to accommodate radio star Stern, 58, who replaced Piers Morgan.
Sharon Osbourne, 60, announced her departure from AGT last July – and then declared she had left after the way NBC executives had treated her son Jack following his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis.
She told the New York Post that Jack had been axed from an upcoming NBC show called Stars Earn Stripes, saying: ‘I just can’t be fake. It’s discrimination, and it was badly handled.’
A source told MailOnline: 'Simon loves trying people out on his shows, Mel's already been a judge on X Factor Australia and it's too far for her to keep taking the kids.

'She did want to do X Factor UK, but Simon really wanted her to do America's Got Talent.

'She's outspoken and never afraid to speak her mind, she makes for good TV. NBC execs will be watching through their eyes - let's hope they won't be using the delay button on live TV.
Mel, who is married to Stephen Belafonte, is mum to daughter Phoenix, who celebrated her 14th birthday yesterday, as well as Angel, five, and one-year-old Madison.

TLC STARTER WIFE CONFIDETIAL CANCELLED

I know if you are like us,  we have never seen one episode anyway so there's nothing we have missed.  TLC's failed reality show "Starter Wives Confidential" -- featuring the exes of 50 Cent, Lamar Odom, DMX, and Funkmaster Flex -- was pulled off the air ONLY because the RATINGS SUCKED ... despite speculations otherwise. 

You'll recall, the reality show was cancelled a few days after its Jan. 29 debut. Many believed it was due to a slew of problems plaguing the show -- including 50 Cent's outspoken dislike of his ex's participation. 

Even one of the stars, Monica Joseph-Taylor (Flex's ex) was confused by the sudden purge, writing on her blog, "Is it ratings? Is it a change in network direction…or all the outside drama?!"
TMZ obtained a letter -- written from the network to the cast members -- which sets the record straight.
The letter states, "Unfortunately, due to the low ratings, the remaining episodes will not air on TLC, but will be viewable on TLC.com." 
It continues, "The decision by TLC isn't personal, although I know it is to you all, and for that we are very sorry.  You ladies gave your all to the show and everyone at TLC is very disappointed that the viewers didn't take this ride with us."

HERE'S THE CAST OF VH1 R & B GROUP TLC BIOPIC

Meet the cast of Crazy, Sexy, Cool...The network has officially announced the roles of Left Eye, Chilli, and T-Boz in the upcoming TLC biopic Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story.
In the film, KeKe Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee) will portray Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, Lil Mama (“America’s Best Dance Crew”) will take on the role of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Drew Sidora (Step Up, “The Game”) has been cast as Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins.

The full-length TV movie will explore the Grammy-winning trio’s rise to fame with their 1991 debut Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip and 1994’s groundbreaking album CrazySexyCool, which sold more than 22 million albums worldwide and made them one of the most successful female groups of all time.

Charles Stone III (Drumline, Paid in Full) will direct the biopic, which is penned by screenwriter Kate Lanier (Set It Off, Beauty Shop). The film is slated to begin production next month in Atlanta.

KHOLE KARDASHIAN...YOUR FIRED!..FROM X-FACTOR



Not a good start to the week for Khloe Kardashian. A report from the New York Post says Khloe will not be back for the next season of the singing competition "The X Factor," on Fox. Khloe joined Mario Lopez as co-host for the show's second season. Lopez has been asked back.
"The X Factor" was Kardashian's first hosting gig, and she often times appeared unprepared. Hosting expert Marki Costello says, "It was really hard for me to watch Mario with her. It made me, as a viewer, almost uncomfortable."
Britney Spears, a judge on the show, announced her departure in January. She's expected to end up with a Las Vegas residency. Another judge, LA. Reid, also left the show to focus on his job at Epic Records. Now, Fox and show creator/judge Simon Cowell are quickly trying to rebuild the show. 

One idea might bring a judge let go early in the season one audition process, British singer Cheryl Cole, back into the fold.

A spokesperson for the show confirms that no talent decisions have been made for this year's competition.


ALICIA KEYS CHATS ON SWIZZ BEATZ, EGYPT’S KISS WITH BLUE IVY ON ‘WENDY WILLIAMS’

The 32-year-old songstress said that she wants more children, but not for at least two more years as she chats with the queen of shade Wendy Williams.  Alicia Keys stopped by “The Wendy Williams Show” on Monday during her never-ending promo tour. The “Girl on Fire” cut loose and dished with Wendy about chopping her hair, her son Egypt, and husband Swizz Beatz.
“He’s kind of a little too ostentatious for my taste,” said Alicia, who saw beyond Swizz’ flashiness. “He really got me when I saw how far his mind went. He’s really, really intelligent and knows so many interesting things.”
She also shared a cute moment when her son Egypt put the moves on Jay-Z and BeyoncĂ©’s daughter Blue Ivy. “I think Egypt kissed Blue and I don’t think Jay liked it very much. He called my husband and he was like, ‘Watch your son.’”

Plus, she hit the stage to perform “Brand New Me.”
