A new report/rumor is making the rounds today that the Spice Girls are planning to reunite again but may do so without Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice). As you may recall, 4 of the Spice Girls (Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton and Melanie Brown) reunited for an impromptu dinner in London last month and tongues started wagging that the girls were talking up plans to reunite again. VB was noticeably absent from the reunion dinner … methinks this new report stems from that incident … so take it with a huge grain of salt:
JUST when the SPICE GIRLS outfits were safely tucked away in the loft, it’s time to start digging them out again. MEL B, with the help of her fella STEPHEN BELAFONTE, are masterminding a full-scale comeback. I say full-scale but one member of the line-up is resisting the invitation. VICTORIA BECKHAM has made it clear to the girls she won’t have the time – or desire – to uproot her family again for more fun and games with her old pals. But Mel B, MEL C and GERI HALLIWELL are getting together next week regardless, with fellow bandmate EMMA BUNTON. Baby is a little reluctant to commit to going on the road but the others are sure they can talk her round. A source said: “This time next year at least four of the five girls will be back on stage doing the Spice material again. Both the Mels and Geri are the driving force behind making it happen. They have agreed to meet up again next week and thrash out their plans for the future of the Spice empire. Emma is being cautious but the minute she’s with the girls they’ll talk her round. When Geri left the first time, she was arguably the band’s biggest star. If they coped without her, they are confident they can make it work without Posh.” But the popularity stakes have changed since the Nineties. Posh was definitely the star attraction on the 2007 tour. I revealed a couple of weeks back that Mel and Stephen had discussed a one-off Spice Girls appearance at the World Cup in South Africa next summer. It sounds like the response has encouraged talks about another big comeback.
HMMM. Moving forward down one Spice Girl is totally doable … as you should recall, Geri left the group after their second album Spice World and the remaining Spices soldiered on with a full scale world tour and album without her. It’s totally possible that they can carry on without VB. To be honest, Vicki B. doesn’t really need the Spice Girls anymore … she is much more famous without them and being married to David Beckham means she’s got more money than she knows what to do with. I can totally see VB opting out of a full-scale reunion … would would it be a success without her? Would any of y’all be excited to see the Spices together again sans Posh?
