Mel has been presented the honor of being added to the Wembly Square of Fame for her continuing achievement in the worlds of music, television, and film. The Square which is ideally a British take on the Walk Of Stars in Hollywood, was inaugurated in 2006 to go along with the £35 million refurbishment of Wembly Arena, and holds several plaques with handprints belonging to such stars as Madonna, Cliff Richard, and recently Roger Moore.Melanie cemented her hand prints for her plaque hours before she was set to host the Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards at Wembly, which almost fell apart because she had forgotten her contact lenses back home in LA. Mel told reporters,
“I was late for rehearsals as I had to get to an opticians. I wouldn’t have been able to present the show if I couldn’t read it.”Her outfit of choice was quite the spectacle among the British press the next day having her compared to Grace Jones, but I personally loved it. Mel co-hosted the award show with Run-DMC member Reverend Run and was supported throughout the night by Stephan and her sister Danielle (pictured above) who were both present at the ceremony.
