Well, someone sure is a liar, liar, spice pants on fire. Not to knock a chick while she’s down, but Mel B has insisted the Spice Girls were reuniting for a tour WITH Victoria Beckham. There’s been about as many “Will they?” or “Won’t they?” stories about the Spices that it’s hard to keep track, but it did seem like Posh was focused more on fashion (and keeping her man away from the elementary school teacher’s lounge) than lip-synching to “Wannabe.” It now sounds like she’s getting the last zig-a-zig-ahh because there’s a report that the show will go on – Posh-less.
The Sun says the Spice Girls’ old manager Simon Fuller is orchestrating the whole reunion. He did the last one where they all had lunch at Geri Halliwell’s house (pictured above), and it seemed like something was going to happen. Posh must have gotten the runs from her lunch because she’s seemed to be unimpressed with the idea despite Mel trying to convince people they were going to all perform at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan. Mel is going to rehab for a slew of issues, including sex and alcohol addiction, but it’s reported that she’ll be out in time for the reunion. It’s a good thing, too, since her divorce and rehab don’t come cheap, and the gals are estimated to rake in £12 million each, assuming the tour does well. A source gave even more scoop:
“After much to’ing and fro’ing, a deal has been signed, and an official announcement will be made soon.The girls can’t wait to go back on tour, perform to the fans and sing some of their greatest hits.”
I mean, it’s not like Posh contributed much to those hits beyond the presence of a black dress in each music video, but, I mean, as much as Mel C, Emma Bunton, Ginger, and Scary are talented, we live in a world where Britney Spears sells out arenas around the world and Christina Aguilera is left to sing her latest album to an audience comprised of the coats in her closet. Nobody goes on Ticketmaster for the talent – it’s for the opportunity to be under the roof for a couple of hours with overpriced booze and a lifeless mop like Posh!
