The Fashion Police host accused the Girls creator and star of "sending a message out to people that it's OK to stay fat and get diabetes" by refusing to conform to Hollywood's super skinny stereotype. Speaking to Howard Stern on his Sirius FM radio show, the 80-year-old comedienne advised the 27-year-old Golden Globe-winning star, "Don't let them laugh at you physically. I'm saying if you look the way you look Lena, that's fine and you're funny, but don't say it's OK that other girls look like this, tell them to try and look better."

While Bill hated working with Bieber, he praised Justin Timberlake for his down to earth attitude. Speaking about the "Mirrors" singer, he said, "He's great. Also, the guy doesn't show up with anybody. Timberlake, it was just him. He's a real class act, that guy."

Mel B: ‘America’s Got Talent’ Judges Are Feisty

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Prime Time, Reality, NBC, Features,

Mel BMel B says the new America's Got Talent judging panel is a "discombobulated" but "feisty" group.

The Spice Girls singer is to judge on the new season of the hit talent competition along with supermodel Heidi Klum and says the panel - which includes radio personality Howard Stern and comedian Howie Mandel - all have unique quirks that makes for an interesting dynamic on set.

"They're really nice actually. We all get on. We're a bit of a feisty panel. We all hang out afterwards; so far so good. [Howard] is completely inappropriate and out of everybody on the panel, I get along with him the most! Howard is a bit grumpy sometimes. Heidi Klum is very sweet; we're really good friends. Howie Mandel is a germaphobe - he rides around in his private jet, and then me and Heidi get to ride around in his private jet, too, but you still can't touch his hands! So between the four of us, it's a completely discombobulated group that somehow get on."

"I just didn't like the fact that it got out that it was because of money. It's not because of money. They've asked Howard back, they haven't asked me back.

Howard Stern In Talks For America’s Got Talent

Howard SternShock jock Howard Stern is in talks to be a judge on America's Got Talent.

The radio host is said to be in "serious negotiations" with network NBC to replace Piers Morgan - who announced his departure earlier this week - and join the panel alongside Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel. According to the Wall Street Journal, if successful, Howard could earn around $15 million a year for the show, which is one of the most successful on US television in the summer months.

He has previously hinted he would enjoy being a panellist on a talent show like American Idol, but was unsure if it would ever happen. Discussing then-judges Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres, he said last year, he said, "They've got a bunch of people on there who don't have an opinion. Judging is an interesting thing. What I do for a living is a lot more complicated than judging. I have to wake up people. I compete in radio markets and to sit there and judge a karaoke contest, the one criteria would be to have an opinion. It seems that two or three of the judges barely have an opinion."
