Interesting Love Secrets

Mel B's younger sister Daniel(17)is having a secret affair
with Mel C's younger brother Paul(18)! Mel C apparently
doesn't think the Idea is such a good idea. She thinks it's
"Too close to home." Especially since The two Mels can end
up sisters-in-law. Apparently they finally got together at
MelB's wedding.

Goodbye Comments

Mel B has commented about the Goodbye single:
"The song is called 'Goodbye,' but it's not goodbye-goodbye,
cause the chorus actually is 'goodbye my friend, it's not
the end.' So for all those people think we're breaking up,
we're not. So correct that. But it is a very sentimental
song, and the first time I heard it I cried. That was the
first time I've cried listening to one of our songs, the
first time I instantly cried. It's got a full orchestra on
there and it just sounds fantastic. [The song] is really
obviously about what's happened during the year, with Geri
leaving and then being strong."

Spice VS. Saints...or not!?

Mel B met face to face with All Saint's Shaznay Lewis on Jo
Whiley's music talk show on Channel 4(UK). The girls talked
about how the media really created a rivalry between the
Spice Girls and All Saints. They both said they want to use
their success to help others.

Saint Invasion

As fans left he Wembly Stadium Spice Girls concert last
weekend they were bombarded by All Saints representatives
passing out flyers about the All Saints tour dates and
promoting their concerts. This is due to major lackluster
ticket sales for All Saints concerts.

Yeah Right!

On the first day of her honeymoon Mel B called into CapitalFM
to tell them that they weren't playing her single! When she
called in the secretary didn't believe it was her and said
to Mel "Yeah, and I'm the Queen of Sheba" and didn't let her
through to James Canon(The DJ)! James Canon called Virgin
Music the next day to see if she really did call and they
said that she did. James will now be playing Mel's song a
bit more!

Girls Quash Rumors!

The Spice Girls came through and shut down rumors that they
are to split! During the final concert of their world tour
at Wembly Stadium Mel B said "We are going to quash some
rumours because I read today again that we are apparently
splitting up." Emma said: "We must have split up about 10
times by now." All the group said together: "We are not
splitting up. No, no, no!" Mel B added: "They can write
what they want to write, but we are not splitting up!" :D

- Monday, September 21, 1998 at 23:39:14 (MET DST)

New Split Rumors

Rumors are apparently flying higher then ever that the Spice
Girls are to split this week. The Wembly Stadium show is to
be their last performance according to rumors. Sources close
to the girls say that the end is indeed very close. Many
supports have been announced to the break up:

1. Goodbye just happens to be their Christmas single, a
slushy ballad all about how friendship goes on no matter

2. The band's contract with Virgin Records expires at the
end of this month. They have not signed another deal as a

3. The girls' crew are kept on a retainer so they are
available at short notice for concerts and TV shows. They
have been told retainers will end tonight.

4. No work has been done on the mysterious third album.

5. Mel B's solo single has left her wanting more success.
And Emma and Mel C have talked of teaming up on a single.

6. The Spice Girls have played in Europe and America but
never in the lucrative Far East-and NO dates have been fixed.

7. Mel B and Victoria are both pregnant. And they are
unlikely to relish taking their babies on tour or leaving
them at home with nannies.

Since this is a rumor I will vent my personal reaction to it.
While many points are correct to me this sounds more like
another attempt by people to bring down the group. The girls
are always "splitting up this week" as long as I can remember.
I have to give credit to the tabloids that this is their best
supported split scare out of them all, with all the support
and whatnot.

Mel C and Victoria have announced that they have become
vegetarians. They made this decision after Linda McCartney's
death during the US leg of their world tour. They talked to
Paul McCartney about giving up meat and he suggested some
dishes from Linda's vegetarian cookbook. The two have not
eaten any meat since.

Game Code

On the topic of the game since it was raised, I think it is
worth it just for the extra video footage that you get!
It's cute too, any true Spice Girls fan has it. I also
noticed I never posted this code for the game!
This code is courtesy "vErT":
After you select your Spice Girl, at the screen where she is
standing on the world hold start and press circle, triangle,
triangle, circle. Some buttons should come up on the screen
and a whistle noise should sound. Now hold start, select,
and press L1, L2, R1, R2 at the same time. At this point
the playstation will reset and the opening screen with the
copyright info will change to a background with the girls
sitting naked behind chairs like in their naked concert
performance! I know there are more codes out there so if
anyone has them email them to lj3971@devrycols.edu

Spice World on Playstation

This was taken directly from a magazine, NOT from me..
also, don't copy it because it IS copyrighted and all that stuff...

More than a non-competitive experience than a game, Spice World lets you choose your favorite Spice Girl and one of the five Spice "hit" songs. You then remix it by bouncing around nine sampling buttons. You'll use your song throughout the game (you'll need a memory card) while learning the Girls' dance moves via PaRappa-style button sequences. Eventually you'll choreograph all five Spices (yes, Ginger is still on the Spice rack) and watch them perform. There's also a lengthy video segment featuring the real Spice Girls. Visually, the polygonal Spice caricatures would terrify even Scary, and the dance moves are neither clear nor exciting. Clunky, confusing controls don't help, and the sound is...well, Spicy. Even devoted fans will exit Spice World quicker than Ginger did. [G]

More Mel News

to the wedding(photos, etc.) to OK Magazine.

Mel B Married.

Melanie Janine Brown has been married to Jimmy Gulzar. She
has become the first Spice Girl to get married. The wedding
took place at 3.30pm at the church next to her home. The
church was specially decorated with white lilies for the
occasion. Fans and journalists crowded outside the church.
A canvas tunnel stretching from the singer's garden almost
to the doors of the church screened wedding-goers from the
crowds. Marlow's vicar, the Rev Sue Irwin was escorted into
the church by 4 police officers. Jimmy arrived in a white
vintage cadillac, Mel B wore a white dress designed by
fasion company D2, and all guests wore white. All Spice
Girls were present, Geri Halliwell was not. Melanie was
given away by her father Martin. Congratulations Mel!

While Mel C was on BBC Radio she revealed that the name of
the Spice Girls Christmas single is "Goodbye". Of course
you can image everybody's instant thoughts and reaction, as
yours is probably right now. Don't worry, Mel said:
"I swear on my life it's not the end of the Spice Girls.
Goodbye is about friendship, relationships and when it's
time to say goodbye."

More Wedding Stuff

Mel B is to wed today according to many rumors. New support
for the wedding theory now is that there was a wooden
walkway being built frantically yesterday between her house
and the church a few yards from her house. Her parents
won't say anything about the wedding when questioned. The
church vicar is keeping his lips sealed not saying anything
about it when questioned! Geri Halliwell also arrived back
in england yesterday and when asked at the airport if she is
attending Mel's wedding she said "What wedding? I wasn't
invited." Probably the most convincing thing is a sign that
has been put up on the street where the church and Mel's
house are saying that there will be a special event on
Sunday between noon and 6pm causing the road to be closed!
I guess we'll find out the resolution to all this in just a
few hours! Expect updates tonight!

MelC Commentary

Melanie C was intervied on BBC Radio 1 and was asked if she
knew whether Mel B was getting married this sunday and her
reaction was:
"Of course I know. She's one of my best friends. I am not
saying anything. It's not my call."
Meanwhile at Mel B's mansion Lorries and vans arrived all
day on Thursday carrying goods and equipment including
portable toilets decked out in gold and green paintwork.
Hmmmm, does anyone else smell a wedding coming on, say maybe
Sunday? We'll see soon!

Spice Nurses

Emma and Mel C made a surprise visit to London's Great
Ormond Street Hospital. The girls talked to sick children
which had no idea that the girls were coming to visit them!
They were in total shock and very happy. The visit was done
under full secrecy. The girls said they wouldn't do it
otherwise. A spokesman said "The Spice Girls' visit came
about because one of our surgeons kept hassling them. Sporty
and Baby were brilliant. They took time out to visit some
really quite sick children." Melanie is quoted as saying:
"We wanted the day to be a genuine surprise for all the
children at the hospital, so we said we'd only do it if the
whole thing was kept hushed up. When you go to a hospital
like that it's really about the courage of all the children
you see there. They were all so upbeat despite the fact
that many of them were faced with serious problems. Those
children are an inspiration to us all."

MelB Sunday Wedding

Many newspapers are reporting that Mel B is indeed set to
get married this Sunday at St. John the Baptist Church in
the village of Little Marlow, only yards from where her new
mansion is located, despite her denying it. Apparently,
workers are frantically making renovations at her Buckinghamshire
mansion for the occasion. A wo-tier 120ft by 40ft marquee
was even put up to protect the couple's privacy. All the
workers have been invited to the wedding, and are told to
wear white apparently. Obviously the rest of the Spice Girls
were also invited. Geri Halliwell also has been said to be
invited but her representatives have said that they are
unsure whether she will be in the country at the time to
attend :0 Less than 100 guests are expected to the wedding.

Spice Baby Boom

All kinds of teachers and whatnot are going crazy and getting
all worried now because they think that the Spice Girls, role
models for thousands of teenage girls, are pregnant and
unmarried. Reports have shown that pop idols do not
influence their fans to copy such acts. It is now a big
thing going back and forth between the debators.

MelB Update

Mel B was on numerous radio and television shows in the past
few days in the UK since the Spice Girls came home. She
has confirmed that she is 4 months pregnant. Mel says she
doesn't want to know the sex of the baby yet even though she
can find out by now through scans. She is also considering
delivering the baby via water-birth. Mel confirmed that she
is to marry Jimmy Gulzar before Christmas and that she will
not have any bridesmaids or maid of honor but that the
wedding will take place in a church. Mel said that she and
Victoria were thinking of making an album showing the two of
them heavily pregnant - "We thought of a video of us being
big and pregnant but you don't know how you'll feel." Mel
has adopted cravings for peanut butter as well as
cheese-cake and ice cream. She also commented on the Geri
issue saying that they are still friends even when Geri left.
"We spoke a couple of weeks ago and she seems nice and happy.
You do have arguments but at the end of the day we do love
each other to bits."

Victoria's Sister Betrays Spice Girls

This was not posted earlier because it is ONLY A RUMOR, but
since it has blown up to be quite a big one, I figured I
might as well post it:

Mel B's pregnancy to a UK Sunday Paper for $11,000. A
friend of Mel's says, "Mel will be furious when she finds
out. She didn't want details of her pregnancy to be made
public until she and Jimmy had seen her doctor in England.

room because she didn't want any more photographs taken of
her. I bet she can hardly wait to get her hands on the

Victoria + Geri

Victoria Adams and fiancee David Beckham went out to dinner
with Geri Halliwell and her fiancee George Michael in the
south of France. They were all laughing and joking but also
seemed to have rather intense moments of conversation. The
conversation apparently got very serious between Victoria
and Geri at times. They were also laughing and joking so it
was a very mixed conversation. David and George seemed to
have gotten along rather well though.
