Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown finally opened up about Eddie Murphy, father to her baby daughter Angel Iris, on Wednesday night.

Well, sort of.

“Can I ask you one Eddie Murphy question?” late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel asked the pop singer and soon to be “Dancing With the Stars” contestant.

“So dumb. I don’t really talk about it, but go on. You’re gonna ask me anyway,” she sighed.

“I want to ask you one thing,” Kimmel said. “What did you think of ‘Norbit’?”

Brown exploded in fits of laughter.

She may not want to talk about Murphy, but she opened up a little, to “Access Hollywood’s” own Tony Potts.

“Is there any resolution? Is it all done and finished with Eddie Murphy,” Potts asked.

“No, it’s going to the courts and the things will get decided there, I guess,” she said.

And with that, Brown stayed mum on her child support battle with Eddie Murphy. What she did want to talk about though, was her upcoming “DWTS” appearance.

“I’m very nervous,” she said. “I don’t even want to think about it. See, I’m already getting a panic attack! I’m in it now. I’m gonna have fun and not think about anything else.”

Mel can expect some support from a certain Spice Girl.

“Victoria (Beckham) is gonna come to one of the shows,” Mel said. “She was excited. She said, ‘I have to design your costumes. We’ve got to sort that out!’”

Posh will handle Brown’s costume, and Sporty will lay down the law. On the upcoming Spice Girls world tour, Sporty Spice, Mel C., has banned booze and insists on lights out by 10:30 p.m., all in an effort to keep the girls focused on their work.

As for new work, however, Mel B. remained mum, once again.

“Can’t say anything about that,” she said.
