London was filled with the aura of girl power and thirst for a check last week when all five of the Spice Girls popped over to Geri Horner’s (aka Ginger Spice) house to eat sushi, pretend to feign interest in Victoria Beckham’s sunglasses line, and craft a scheme to get millions for agreeing to put photos of them from 1997 on lunch boxes for adults and hawk it to millennials for $49.99! Even though early reports made this reunion seem like one limited to branding opportunities and the occasional TV appearance, it sounds like the Spice Girls may take to the stage to “sing” after all.

I know, Spice Girls reunion rumors are about as prevalent (and believable) as Big Foot sightings. Actually, that’s an insult to Big Foot…we don’t know he isn’t real! But, this Spice Girls reunion rumor came with photographic evidence. All five of the gals posted a photo of them together on Instagram this morning, and most people started whispering about how it must be for a reunion. Tose whispers are correct. Continue reading
Mel C (aka “Sporty Spice“) was able to round up most of her fellow Spice Girls to appear in the video for her new track, “Room For Love.” The only holdout was Mel “Scary Spice” B. In her defense, she’s probably hiding from her terrifying psycho douche ex.
The “Girl Power” wasn’t actually resurrected in the same shoot for the video, though. This was one of those “get a bunch of people to record themselves lip-synching the video and cobblie it together for cheap” vids. But Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton, Geri “Ginger Spice” Halliwell, and Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham all pop up. Posh is kind of surprising, seeing as she’s got the most money and has no need to lift an expensively manicured, skeletal finger. But it’s nice of her to help a sister out.
Sadly, it wasn’t over the proper way to give inflection to “Zigg-a-zigg-ahhhh!” Geri Halliwell (or Horner, as she likes to be called these days since she married Red Bull F1 racing team principal Christian Horner) let it be known on Instagram she had a very good weekend. Not only was rubbing elbows with Kit Harington at the Italian Grand Prix, but he had cornered him into giving her elocution lessons on one of the most memorable lines from Game Of Thrones.
The Daily Mail says Kit tried to cajole a Northern accent out of the London-raised Ginger, but she was having difficulty. No shit. Did Kit get his Spice Girls mixed up? Because that’s Scary Spice’s wheelhouse.
Ginger has come a long way when it comes to man handling. It seems like it wasn’t THAT long ago when she was popping out of a pair of legs at the Brits to croon “Bag It Up“ and give me all the gay camp feels when my dad would have preferred I pretend I enjoyed playing basketball like all the other kids who lived on our block. Now she’s married with two kids and running lines with Jon Snow!!! Speaking of, just when she seemed to nail the line, she had to go and fuck it up again. Don’t give up, Geri! There could be a part waiting for you next season. You’ll surely do better than the last ginger pop star they brought ’round Westeros!
January 21st was Baby Spice’s birthday, and it was also the day that Ginger Spice gave birth to her second child, a son she made with her husband Christian Horner. Since Ginger birthed out a baby on Baby’s birthday, she should’ve paid tribute to Emma Bunton by naming her son Blond Pigtails Horner or Platform Sneakers Horner. But instead, Ginger and Christian got all Shakespearean with their kid’s name.
Seen above looking more natural and charismatic than usual, the Spice Girls are reportedly putting together a big tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their first single “Wannabe.” Yes, it’s been 20 years since “Wannabe” came out. Yeah, so when you get your nursing home van service to swing by and pick me up for the show, make sure they leave enough room for my walker. Because I’m going to need something sturdy to hang onto when I shake my replaced hip and drop it as low as my knees can take me when the Spice Girls perform “Holler.” Life Alert better double their staff, because we’re all going to be hitting that button when we’ve twerked and can’t get up at the Spice Girls show.
