TCA Press Tour: Mel B dances her way to hosting gig
After her stint on "Dancing with the Stars," former Spice Girl Mel B can dance with the best of them. She's foxtrotted. Done the samba. The tango? That too.
Now she's taking part in a different dance competition. This time as host of the second season of Oxygen's "Dance Your Ass Off."
'I'm just so excited to be a part of it," she said. "Dance has always been a big part of my life. ... [It] helped me lose my baby weight."
The songstress -- who replaces another "Stars' alum Marissa Jaret Winokour as host -- revealed that she shed 90 pounds while competing on "Dancing with the Stars." Now she'll watch as a bevy of full-figured contestants get light on their toes in the dance/weight-loss competition.
"We wanted to find a host that really, really connected with our audience," said executive producer Dan Cutforth.
The second season will air this summer.
