Mel B is to star in her own Las Vegas burlesque show

Feature by BANG Showbiz | 19 Nov 2008

The former Spice Girl Mel B will play leading lady Peep Diva in the classy ‘Peepshow’ strip show next year.

Mel - who is married to film producer Stephen Belafonte - told People magazine: "This part is great for me. As a Spice Girl I would bring guys on the stage and whip them, so I think I've always been slightly naughty." A source said: “Mel can’t wait. She won’t go topless, but she will be showing a considerable amount of flesh in a range of sexy stage outfits. I’m sure Mel’s husband is hoping she will bring some of them home.”

‘Peepshow’ is set to open at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in April 2009. The production will feature Mel’s character leading another dancer, Bo Peep - played by US TV star Kelly Monaco - from a timid girl to a confident, sensual woman. Mel, 33, added: “This is an original show. The Peep Diva is a diva, but it's all about empowering Kelly's part."

Both Mel and Kelly have previously appeared on ‘Dancing with the Stars’. The show’s creator, choreographer Jerry Mitchell, said: “We have gathered 20 of the sexiest dancers from film, video, and Broadway to bring a truly American form of entertainment back to the strip.

“The art of the tease, mixed with humour, razzle-dazzle, and today's sexy music, with ‘Peepshow’ these stunning dancers will use their bodies to tell a story.”
Preview tickets for the show are on sale now.
