I spent a good chunk of last night in a restless sleep wondering what horse tranquilizer the non-Posh Spice Girls had fed Victoria Beckham in order to get her to sign on for another Spice Girls reunion, but now it looks like a reunion will be limited to Sporty, Baby, Scary, and Ginger buying Victoria’s Target line on eBay.
The Sun was responsible for a high-pitched shriek over much of America yesterday (and that was just from me) when it reported the Spice Girls are reuniting for a TV special and compilation album in 2018. I immediately scratched my head since Posh has said their performance at the 2012 Olympics in London was the perfect high note to go out on. Posh has always poo-poohed the thought of a reunion ever since they strapped her to the top of a black cab and raced around London’s Olympic stadium as she gesticulated with her microphone off. The others had even thought about reuniting for a tour sans Sporty and Posh. But The Sun claims that Sporty changed her mind and also changed Posh’s.
“The five of them have been locked in secret talks since the summer, and finally they are all on-board for a 2018 reunion. As it stands, they will be working together on a series of projects, which will include an album and a TV special celebrating the Spice Girls. And getting Victoria to agree has been a coup for everyone involved, given she has always been the person holding back on a reunion.”
I read The Sun article with a little bit of trepidation that suddenly shit was all hunky dory. It sounds like the doubts were for good reason. Gossip Cop says the reunion rumors are about as real as Posh’s WAG-era boobies that kept her off the cover of American Vogue! Someone called the whole thing “utter nonsense” while a Posh source gave a more PR-friendly explanation:
“Victoria has a lot of love and respect for the Spice Girls and the fun they had, but her future focus is fashion and family only.”
That’s a nice way of saying, “Posh already has plenty of reasons to pout in front of the cameras, and she’d rather not see that evolve into a full-fledged snarl after pretending to sing in front of casino guests who thought they were getting free tickets to see Celine Dion.”
