Mel B continued to be my favorite Spice Girl on Thursday, appearing on the UK Narstie’s Big Show casually throwing out a list of famous assholes, including herself. When asked by host Mo Gilligan to identify the “biggest asshole” she’d ever met, the singer had names locked and loaded, starting with none other than notoriously obnoxious restaurant boss James Corden.
“So there are a few. James Corden, Geri Halliwell, Jessie J and I,” B said. It seems like a few of them — presumably her and fellow Spice Girl Halliwell — were jokes. Halliwell, she said, can just be “really boring.”
But Corden’s shadow seemed to be very serious. “I think you always have to be nice to the people you work with, whether it’s production, cameramen, sound, lighting,” Mel said. “We all work for the same thing so you should always be nice and he wasn’t very nice. »
For the many Jezebel readers who are die-hard Corden fans (sarcasm!) and who are in disbelief, mind you, Mel B appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden not so long ago in 2016. Based on her comments Thursday to Gilligan, it does seem like she saw some things.
And Corden doesn’t exactly have a clean track record when it comes to his treatment of non-famous people. The ‘comedian’ spent much of October very publicly feuding with Keith McNally, owner of posh New York restaurant Balthazar, who called Corden a ‘little moron of a man’ and ‘the most abusive towards my servers Balthazar since the opening of the restaurant. 25 years ago” in an Instagram post. This led McNally to briefly ban Corden from his restaurant.
At the time, McNally told Page Six that he was “reluctant” to publicly call out Corden, but made the decision to do so “out of loyalty to restaurant servers around the world.” And if we are to believe Mel B – personally, I do!! — it sure sounds like Corden isn’t exactly a charmer for the production team, either.
Corden eventually apologized to McNally, but he has yet to respond to Mel B’s comments. Either way, the late-night host’s self-constructed image as a “nice guy” Everyday has been the subject of intense scrutiny for years, from its very public anti-Asian jokes to rumors that it moves “overweight” studio audience members backwards. . A big asshole, indeed!
