'The Real' Hosts Say Mel B 'Dragged' Them After Spice Girls Royal Wedding Reunion Reveal (Exclusive)

The ladies of 'The Real' opened up to ET about how the singer reacted to accidentally over-sharing about the Spice Girls' involvement with the Royal Wedding.

When Mel B sat down with the hosts of The Real in February, the singer and America's Got Talent judge was gently prodded about whether or not the Spice Girls were invited to the Royal Wedding, and if they'd be performing -- which she seemingly confirmed with exasperation.

According to co-hosts Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley, Mel B wasn't really thrilled about that line of questioning.

"When Mel was on the show, we asked her was she going to the royal wedding? And she said, 'All five of us are going to the royal wedding.' We're like, 'All five Spice Girls?'" Love told ET's Denny Directo on the red carpet outside the 2018 Daytime Emmy Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium on Sunday. "So we thought, well if all five are going, and we know that Prince Harry was a big fan, well maybe they're performing at the reception."

"So when we asked her, she just looked down [and then] she threw her cards up in the air and we're like, 'We'll take that as a yes.'"

While she might have been more honest than she meant to be while on-air, the hosts said she wasn't giving up any additional details when the cameras stopped rolling.

"She knew she gave us a whole lot," Love said.

"She dragged us for a long time about it," Mai added. "She was like, 'Look what you guys made me do!'"

The hosts of The Real were bright and sparkly in color-coordinated gowns at the 2018 Daytime  Emmy Awards -- where they ended up taking home the coveted prize for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Hosts.

Before the show, however, the stars expressed their excitement and gratitude simply for being nominated.

"It just shows that our peers recognize us and we feel that it's a great honor just to be here," Love shared. "That's why we put all the effort into dressing and all of this cause we just wanna show that were appreciative."

However, getting recognized at the awards show is just one reason Mowry-Housely is celebrating -- her sister, Tia Mowry, is expecting her second baby with husband Cory Hardrict.

"This pregnancy has been a lot easier than her first," Mowry-Housely shared. "So that's actually encouraging because we're hitting 40, and yeah, she's killing it."

The expectant mom welcomed her first child with Hardrict, son Cree Taylor, in June 2011. The couple announced they were expecting baby no. 2 last November.

Meanwhile, people across the world are gearing up for the hotly anticipated Royal Wedding on May 19, when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will tie the knot at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.
