Former Dancing with the Stars alumni Melanie Brown and Kelly Monaco are trading the ballroom for a Las Vegas stage.

Monaco and Brown – a Dancing winner and runner-up respectively – are set to star in PEEPSHOW, a topless, burlesque-style performance that is expected to open in March at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.

Neither Brown nor Monaco will be topless, but the showgirls surrounding them will be. Brown will be "scantily clad, but in a classy way," she says.

Mel B: The Spice Girls Are Finished for Good

Originally posted 09/05/2008 09:30AM

The Spice Girls seemed to leave the door open for another reunion when their tour ended in February, but Melanie Brown says that door has shut for good.

Asked whether the group would ever come together to tour again, Brown offered a quick and emphatic "No" to reporters Thursday night at the 8th Annual BMI Urban Awards in Beverly Hills, adding, "[last year's tour] was our final goodbye."

But Scary Spice still misses her bandmates – Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) – despite comments she made recently, which indicated she and the girls are "not in touch much."

Friendship never ends?

That's not exactly true, admits Melanie Brown, who says she doesn't speak regularly to her fellow Spice Girls. "We're not in touch much," she tells the new issue of British magazine Closer.

And that includes Victoria Beckham – even though the two former bandmates live just a few miles apart in Los Angeles.

"Victoria and I are very different," Brown explains. "People bracket us together because we live in the same city and we're both interested in fashion. Victoria's fashion line has been very successful and hopefully mine will be too. But that's where the similarities begin and end."

"I'm going to go out to see about it next week," she said. And husband Stephen Belafonte, 33, showed his support by adding "She's done Rent before, she would be great!"

Brown, 33, added: "Then I have our sitcom we're working on and my Project Runway show. I'm launching my clothes line through that, hopefully this year."

Melanie Brown might be a Spice Girl but thanks to her new husband, she feels more like a Spice Lady.

"He is a man [and] I don't think I've had a man before," Brown tells the Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine. "Normally I'm the man."

Handing the baton over to her husband of nearly nine months, she says, has left her feeling quite girlie. "He makes me feel like a woman, a lady."
