Was Mel B’s ‘You Will Never Own Me’ VMA Dress Addressing Ex or Simon Cowell?

Mel B wore a personally designed dress with a bold message on it to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday: a sequinned dress with the words “You Will Never Own Me” hand-stitched along the front, according to US Weekly magazine.

“The former Spice Girl arrived at the award show in a sparkly gold body con dress from Discount Universe with spaghetti straps, a V-neckline, and the words “You Will Never Own Me” written in rainbow hues down the front,” Emily Patrick, writing for the site wrote. “She ditched all accessories, letting her statement shift shine, pairing it with bright red pumps, minimal makeup, and her asymmetrical haircut swept over to one side.”

There is speculation as to who that message is addressing.

She is embroiled in a contentious divorce and custody battle with her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte.

A court ordered the America’s Got Talent judge to pay her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte $40,000 per month in temporary spousal support as well as $140,000 in attorney fees and forensic fees on Belafonte’s behalf. The two share a 5-year old daughter Madison. 

But others have speculated that the message was addressed to co-judge on AGT, Simon Cowell, who took a jab at her failed marriage during a broadcast last week.

After an embarrassing technical malfunction on a magician contestant’s performance, Cowell quipped: “I kind of imagine this would be like Mel B’s wedding night. A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.”

Afterwards, Brown jumped out of her seat, poured her glass of water onto Cowell’s lap and stormed off stage during the live taping.  throwing a glass of water at him, Brown stormed out of the studio despite it being a live taping.

At a red carpet event after that taping, Mel B said of the incident, “He should know that if he says something inappropriate,he is going to get stuff thrown at him.”

She was also already emotional from watching another contestant’s touching performance and hearing a personal backstory.

“[Evie Clair] really made me cry because it made me think about my dad, and my dad recently passed away from cancer also, with an almost eight to nine years struggle. So a story like that from such a young girl really touches my heart,” Mel B told E! News  “She just sounded so beautiful and I couldn’t stop crying, so I go from that to Simon saying something so rude and inappropriate.”

MILF Alert: The Mums at Maxim’s Hot 100 List Party

The Maxim Hot 100 List for 2016 isn’t out yet, but the photos of the celebrities that attended its party to celebrate this year’s list is. On it, we spotted five of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums.

Each came dressed in their most sexy attire because if you’re on the list, you have to prove you have a reason to be there right.

I think Mel B won the award for the most revealing. Her wine colored dress had a slit that revealed her bikini line. Wowza.

Eva Marcille also went with a wine colored House of CB dress only hers was made of the same latex type material as  the Givenchy Couture dress Beyonce wore to the Met Gala this year. Talk about hot, right? Literally and figuratively.

Draya Michelle wins the award for the best post-baby bounceback. I mean, she just had her baby  5 months ago in April! Whoa, baby!  She worked a black leather halter top and a floor length skirt with lace inset both by Lethicia and it too had a generous slit as well.

Nicole Murphy wins the award for the mom with the most kids with an awesome body. Check out her Grecian low cut dress from Camille Flawless.

Last, but not least, Amber Rose showed up and showed out in a wig and large Jackie-O sunglasses with a black halter top jumpsuit. It was  giving me dominatrix meets Bond girl, yes?

It’s been a long while since I last did my most expensive baby stroller post and since then the market has exploded with some amazing strollers.

One of the top strollers known and widely loved by tech aficionados is the  4moms Origami Stroller. It’s loved because it take the  stress out of traveling about with your kid. I mean it folds and unfolds automatically when you press a button and comes equipped with tech features like a built-in phone charger, thermometer, mileage counter, and LED headlights. If you had any doubt that this is the Rolex of strollers, the Origami Stroller even charges itself as you walk!

It’s on the pricey side but if you can afford it you’ll join the likes of a bunch of celebs who have been photographed out and about with their kids in them. about $850!

Kourtney Kardashian, Rachel Zoe, Tia Mowry, Kim Zolciak, Bethenny Frankel, Melanie Brown, Denise Richards, Kim Zolciak, Neil Patrick Harris and Mario Lopez all have been seen pushing their tots in it.

2015 ESPY Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

espy 2015 red carpet

Yesterday was The 2015 ESPYS at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California and as usual, we spotted some of the celebrity women we have featured in the past on the Red Carpet before the show. Halle Berry, Britney Spears, Ciara, Mel B and Lisa Leslie all made a turn on the crimson strip.

Kim Kardashian West attended but did not walk the Red Carpet but did have a great seat with all of her family to witness her Step-Dad  the former Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn Jenner, accept the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

Here is the rundown of what the five who walked the carpet wore:

ciara

I really dug the belted magenta ombre Elie Saab Fall 2014 goddess dress Ciara wore while accompanying her beau NFL’s Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. I thought her Jimmy Choo heels were hawt! She was working that side slit.

halle berry

Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry was on hand to present the Pat Tillman Award for Service to Danielle Green, a former Notre Dame basketball player, Iraq war veteran, and Purple Heart recipient. She went with a fit and flare flirty black lace and leather mini dress with bell cuffs.  It was cute. Not the best I’ve seen on her. I didn’t really dig the messy tussled hair with this outfit. I guess she was going for rocker edgy. Meh.

I did love her wrap around ankle Brian Atwood heels and the Sylva and Cie jewels.

britney spears

Britney Spears attended and presented the award to the Best Female Athlete. She looked cute but quite uncomfortable in a fringe sequined Davidson Zanine dress that looked like one of the numbers she wears in her Vegas show. All of the pics showed her with her hands covering her bum

mel b in red

 

 America’s Got Talent judge Mel B (Melanie Brown) looked super gorge in a simple pencil length red hot dress with criscross bodice, red pumps, box clutch and cherry red lipstick. The slick back is perfect for this dress. It’s simple and elegant.

lisa leslie espy

Former WNBA player Lisa Leslie was vibrant and bright in a sunflower draped dress. It contrasted perfectly against her skin. She accented it with a box clutch, gold arm asp, bracelets and fan earrings. The sports commentator went with ringlets but would have looked better if it was an updo. She didn’t present but is the only athlete among the bunch!
