TCA Press Tour: Mel B dances her way to hosting gig

January 10, 2010 |  3:29 pm

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.
