Exclusive: Mel B Opens Up About Marriage + Spice Girls Reunion



Mel B isn’t just excited about the upcoming 10th season of America’s Got Talent, she’s also looking forward to the 20th anniversary of the Spice Girls!

We caught up with Scary Spice at the AGT red carpet and she hinted that the British Pop Group might be reuniting for this special anniversary. “You’ll see soon…we’ll see,” the singer told HipHollywood with a sly smile.

She also laughed off reports of any trouble in her marriage. Last year, Mel and her husband Stephen Belafonte faced rumors that he had abused her. But, Melanie (Mel B’s legal name) has defended her husband and refuted any issues between them. While on the red carpet, she showed us the new, huge ring Belafonte gifted her with and also told us that she loves her husband very much. “I married my best friend. I’ve known him for nearly 15 years. He’s great, quirky, funny, sexy and annoying, but I love him!”

Looks like Mel B has a lot to celebrate these days!


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
