A revelation recently made by Mel B of the Spice Girls, would surely have you yelling ‘what the hell’. She as it turns out, she slapped Simon Cowell for calling her fat. Basically, this was at a time when Mel was pregnant. She had gone to a restaurant for a night out. At the restaurant Cowell teased her by ordering food all night, so as to suggest that she was eating too much. One can’t even begin to imagine ‘what the hell’ Cowell was thinking when he decided to tease her in this fashion, despite knowing that she was pregnant.

But, Mel unlike many who cow down to Cowell’s insults decided to hit back, and she did it literally when she slapped him for insulting her. “I kept saying to him, ‘Excuse me, I’m pregnant – do not be like that with me’, and then at the end of the meal he called me fat. So I just slapped him,” she was quoted as saying, while revealing the details of the incident. Where the hell are the paparazzi when you need them? Is something, one would ask at this point. The fact is, Cowell’s expression and his reaction after the slap, would have really made for great press.

But, the paparazzi was probably busy photographing Lindsay Lohan or Kim Kardashian doing something foolish at that point, and therefore missed out on this gem of an incident. One has to laud Cowell’s magnanimity though; despite this incident Cowell hired Mel B to be a guest judge on The X Factor earlier this year. In fact, her successful stint led to rumors she could join the panel permanently next year. “Mel was our first choice,” a source was quoted as saying. “She was so quick and honest. You can’t let everyone down gently or the praise is meaningless. There’s a lot of money on the table for her next year.”

Well whatever the history between Cowell and Mel, one thing is for sure, Cowell can sure spot talent when he sees it, something that we all knew from his ‘American Idol’ days. Therefore it isn’t surprising he made a smart move once again, when he chose Mel to be a judge. But, the question that still needs answering is: ‘What the hell’ was he thinking when he decided to tease a pregnant woman with raging hormones?
