Hell hath no fury like a woman’s wrath.
The latest episode of “America’s Got Talent” was full of drama. When Simon Cowell decided to poke fun at fellow judge Mel B’s marriage, she threw a cup of water at him and stormed off set. Oh snap!
When it was Cowell’s turn to critiqued escape artist Demian Aditya after the magician’s trick failed due to technical difficulties, the TV mogul made a reference to ex-Spice Girl’s marriage. “I kind of think it will be like Mel B’s wedding night. A lot of anticipation, not much promise,” the 57-year-old Brit said. Ouch!
Mel B (full name: Melanie Brown), who is in an ugly divorce with her ex Stephen Belafonte, stood up and aggressively threw her cup of water at Cowell’s face in retaliation, soaking his shirt and face in the process. She then stormed off set right in the middle of the episode. It appeared that Cowell had hit too close to home.
“I just (wish) I would have had cranberry juice in there or something, and then his whole body would be really sticky!” the singer said about her confrontation with Cowell. “I told him he was an a**hole and that was it, and he goes, ‘Oh, whatever,’” she later added.
You can watch the drama here:
This is not first time Mel B had thrown a drink at Cowell. During the audition rounds, the mean judge had commented that the pop star managed to get famous without knowing how to properly dance. Cowell ended up getting soaked.
It’s nice to know that Cowell still has his sarcastic quip to him. It certainly makes for entertaining TV doesn’t it?
