More Car News!

Mel's younger brother Paul wants to be a race car driver.
His ambition is to race a formula one in a grand prix. Paul
got his racing license in March and has been driving a
scaled-down formula one car at the Donington Park circuit in
Derbyshire since last year. Paul is inspired by his older
sister. He says "I watch her on stage and think, Look at
how hard she works and how good she is, and try and do that
myself." He also reveals that Mel is not into motor racing
but encourages him with it. He did however wreck Mel's R-reg
Mercedes SLK when he lost control at 30mph and hit a lamp
post. He walked away with only cuts and bruises but admitted
that he was not looking forward to Mel's reaction. He said
"She'll batter me for this. I needed to get to work and
Melanie has always said she doesn't mind who uses the car."
All the Spice Girls got one of the Mercs for helping the
German firm launch the new McLaren Formula One car.

are only 250 manufactured each year. The car can go from 0

MelC Buys House

-=RUMOR WARNING=-
Mel C apparently splashed out 1,500,000 for a penthouse on
the outskirts of London's trendy Hampstead village. She will
be neighboring many celebrities at this new flat. It has a
stunning view of north London that Mel couldn't resist. Most
say that Mel wouldn't buy such an open non private home but
apparently the surrounding and view won her over.

Victoria Kicked Out...Again

Victoria was once again thrown out of an establishment
recently. She was in a branch of the WH Smith stores to
purchase some wrapping paper. As she tried to pay for it
she was mobbed by fans that had noticed her and wanted an
autograph. She started signing them and a line quickly built
up. The line was considerably long and after a small amount
of time the manager of the store asked her if she would move
out of the way because she and her line of fans were blocking
other customers from making purchases. Allegedly after asking
her 3 times to move the manager finally asked her to leave as
she was still signing autographs. Some say that Victoria
swore at the manager and left. Either way she was rather
embarrassed at the whole incident as she left the store.

Spice Girls vs. Nelson Mandela

The Spice Girls and American rocker Chrissie Hynde have taken
up the cause of releasing 30 young captive elephants in South
Africa. The elephants were captured last year as a population
control move and then sold to a game hunter. Hynde and the
Spice Girls sent a letter to Nelson Mandela about the matter.
Hynde wrote "I pray that their walk to freedom will not be
as long as yours was" and the Spice Girls later in the letter
said "Please help these frightened baby elephants feel the
comfort and love of their mothers once again." A South
African court granted the SPCA custody of the elephants after
questions were raised about the conditions in which they were
held. The game hunter has appealed the court order prompting
an on-site inspection of the conditions the elephants are
living in. The Spice Girls also called on Mandela to ask
Botswana to ban further captures of elephants in the large
but sparsely populated country.

WebChat Follow Up

Well the Emma and MelC webchat was today. I was there,
somewhat at least. I think everyone learned one thing at
least from today's webchat, and that is that WebChat sucks.
Especially the type that was used at the virgin site, pure
html, not even Java! It was nearly impossible to get in and
once you did when it went to reload the page to update the
conversation it was just like trying to get in all over again.
But the chat was cute because it was with Emma and MelC so it
was good to have anyway! The questions answered were all
pre-submitted ones and some of our colleagues from
#spicegirls got their questions asked!

Spice Girls C3 site at for the transcript.

Victoria Takes Action

Victoria aparently is extremely tired with the stories of the
affair between David Beckham and Emma Ryan and has been
quoted as saying:

"I trust David 110%. I've found the person I want to spend
the rest of my life with. These stories are so ludicrous
that we are going to take legal action. The truth is we are
stronger than ever and both looking forward to having the
baby. The reports haven't damaged our relationship at all.
The only thing that matters is that we love and trust each
other and our families are okay. If people want to believe
what they are reading, that's up to them."

Disney Spice

The Spice Girls are allegedly close to closing a deal with
Disney in which Disney will make an animated feature film
about them. It is also likely that there will be a TV
series after the movie as well as a massive merchandising
campaign. Disney wants to get started on the movie right
away so they are rushing to get the deal finished. The movie
will take a year to create and Disney wants to release it
for Christmas 1999. The girls left all negotiations to be
handled by Mel C.

Spice Girls Win Appeal

Paul Attridge has lost an appeal in court to turn over a
previously instated gag order against him by the Spice Girls.
The girls won a case which prevented Attridge from writing a
book about his experience with the Spice Girls. Attridge
apparently had some juicy secrets on the girls' personal
lives and the truth behind why Geri left the group. Attridge
was their limo driver and was fired earlier this year when he
told a tabloid about the Spice Girls' personal lives. The
girls lawyers rallied in the first trial that the gag order
should be put on Attridge to prevent an invasion of privacy
into their lives. Attridge is under legal order not to reveal
any information about the girls' spending habits, love lives,
or business affairs. The girls won. Paul Attridge still broke
the order because he would not hand over confidential material.
This time the lawyers were looking to jail Attridge for
already breaking the first injunction while he appealed the
entire gagging order. Attridge apologized and promised to
abide by the gag order and was not jailed.

terrible. Victoria gave David a cuddle at the Disney Kids
Awards ceremony that the couple attended. Victoria picked
up an award for the Spice Girls. Emma picked up an award
for best pop star, and David got an award for Favorite Sports
Star.

Foul On Beckham

There are reports that are almost confirmed true that David
Beckham cheated on Victoria when the Spice Girls were on
tour in the US. It was apparently with topless model Emma
Ryan. She has confessed to a newspaper about the incident
after she never heard from Beckham again after Victoria
returned to England. David apparently arranged many secret
meetings between the two during night hours and even gave her
seats to sit in the same section as his parents during his
football games. The two were aparently rather excited about
each other. It apparently got to the point that they were
kissing passionately on a couch and fondling each other.
Word has it that Victoria is obviously very very very angry
with him and associates close to her say that David will
get a literal beating.
