Carrie Ann: 'I Didn't Mean to Insult Mel B!'

“Dancing with the Stars” host Carrie Ann Inaba is speaking out about a comment she made to Melanie Brown last night that left the Spice Girl stunned.

“When you open your mouth, you’re kind of like a truck driver,” Carrie Ann told Mel B. after her dance number.

A shocked Mel responded, “What?”

Now Carrie Ann is telling “Extra” she wants to set the record straight.

“I didn't mean it in a negative way,” she insisted. “I wasn't insulting her, but she's kind of gruff when she talks. She's very strong, and I love that because I kind of speak my mind, too.”
