Mel C reveals she was bullied during Spice Girls years
Former Spice Girls singer Mel C says she was bullied during her years with the British girl group.

The 42-year-old recording artist, aka Sporty Spice, claimed as much in the December issue of Attitude, and revealed her new solo album, Version of Me, was inspired by the experience.

"Version of Me is about being bullied. About being in a situation as a young adult where I felt bullied and how that has affected me, and molded me in a way," Mel C told the magazine.

"Unfortunately, being bullied can really damage people and even when you are stronger and over it, it can still be in the background -- undermining you," she confessed. "I hope people will identify with that track."

Mel C confirmed the bullying occurred during her years with the Spice Girls, but said she's "not going to name names." She and the person in question have reportedly put the matter to rest.

"It's been addressed, they were aware of what they'd done. They apologized," the star revealed.

"When we were kids we were so hard on each other and so determined to succeed that if anybody fell out of line they were quickly brought back in. That was quite a lot of pressure to live under," she reflected.

Mel C, Mel B, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Victoria Beckham formed the Spice Girls in 1994, and last released the album Forever, sans Halliwell, in 2000. Mel B, Bunton and Halliwell are planning a reunion for the 20th anniversary of Spice, but Mel C and Beckham won't take part.

"I made the difficult decision not to be part of a proposed reunion," Mel C explained in a piece for Love Magazine in August. "The hardest part for me was letting people down, the girls, the fans, civilization?! Unfortunately something didn't feel quite right and I had to follow my gut."


Shannen Doherty undergoes reconstructive surgery after mastectomy
Shannen Doherty is continuing her breast cancer battle by beginning the process of reconstructing the breast she lost during a single mastectomy last year.

Doherty has openly shared her journey on social media with pictures and videos of her struggles and triumphs.

On Thursday Doherty posted a video to Instagram during an appointment with Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Jay Orringer.

"Getting my expander expanded by my reconstructive surgeon @jayorringermd and the lovely Ana Marie," Doherty explained. "I consider myself very lucky and very blessed to have this man as my doctor. The last couple of days have been busy gearing up for radiation. #warrior #fightlikeagirl #cancerslayer."

Doherty said the temporary expander, which is used to prepare the muscle for the permanent implant, had to be made bigger ahead of her coming radiation therapy since the "radiation shrinks it."

Shelley Duvall to Dr. Phil: 'I'm very sick, I need help'
Shelley Duvall, best known for her role opposite Jack Nicholson in The Shining, opened up to TV's Dr. Phil McGraw about her struggle with mental illness.

Duvall, 67, who is almost unrecognizable in the promo for the interview, told McGraw that she knows she is ill.

"I'm very sick, I need help," she said.

Duvall has been living in Blanco, Tex., since retiring from acting in 2002. In the interview with McGraw, which is set to air on Friday's episode of Dr. Phil, Duvall described some of the symptoms of her illness -- including her belief that former co-star Robin Williams isn't dead but "shapeshifting."

"The man who is threatening me is the Sheriff of Nottingham," Duvall said in a clip from the interview.

Duvall's acting credits include Brewster McCloud, Nashville, and Popeye.


Nicole Kidman told Jimmy Fallon that he missed out on a second chance to ask her out
Nicole Kidman returned to The Tonight Show Thursday for another awkward interview with Jimmy Fallon and told him he missed a second chance to ask her out.

In a January 2015 appearance on the show, Kidman revealed she used to have a crush on Fallon and told a story about how the comedian missed an opportunity to ask her on a date.

Kidman returned to the late night talk show to discuss her new film, Lion, but instead told Fallon that he had another chance to ask for her number while the two were at a party at director David Fincher's house, but he didn't take it.

"It was a long time ago," Kidman revealed, saying the second encounter took place while Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were still married. "You could have asked for my number then... and you still didn't ask for it!"

Fallon seemed embarrassed that he didn't remember the second opportunity either.

Kidman then surprised Fallon with an appearance by her husband, Keith Urban.

"I get it, I get it," Fallon said.

Which actress hinted at 'Wedding Crashers 2', shares holiday prank involving Amy Adams?

Isla Fisher has spilled the beans regarding a possible sequel to hit comedy Wedding Crashers and a holiday prank she pulled involving the likeness of Amy Adams.

"I bumped into Vince Vaughn at a party and he said apparently we are going to be making a sequel," the actress said Thursday of her Wedding Crashers co-star during an appearance on NBC's Today.

"I'm excited to see what happened to Gloria," she continued about her character.

Fisher also said how she is often mistaken for fellow actress Amy Adams and how one year she decided to poke fun at their similar looks with help from husband Sacha Baron Cohen.

"One year for our holiday greeting card, I cut and pasted Amy Adams' face over mine," the 40-year-old admitted.

"So it was Sacha, Amy and the kids and then we said, 'Season's greetings from Sasha, Isla' - no one noticed."

Fisher and Adams appear together alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Tom Ford's thriller Nocturnal Animals.

Based on Austin Wright's book Tony and Susan, a trailer for the film follows Adams and Gyllenhaal as lovers who find themselves caught up in a dark and twisted revenge plot.
