Noel says Spice Girls are no longer together
-= Rumor Warning =-

In an interview with the Sunday People, Noel (Victoria's sister's ex-boyfriend) claims that the Spice Girls will never work again. Noel claims Victoria told him that she doesn't like Geri, gets along with Mel B, is not as close to Emma as people think, and that Mel C hardly talks to any of the Girls now and has grown apart from the Girls as she is working on her solo career.

-= Rumor Warning =-

As it's a 3rd source, I would take all of this with a grain of salt. However, it is clear that all the Spice Girls have their solo projects as their first priority.

Mel B And Phoenix Meet Nelson Mandela
Mel B and her daughter Phoenix Chi met up with ex-South African President Nelson Mandela - for the second time, as Mel B first met him alongside the other Spice Girls during a trip to South Africa in 1997 - before she had to perform at London's Trafalgar Square concert on Sunday, which was held to celebrate South Africa Freedom Day.

Later, Mel B said:

"It was brilliant to be reunited with him. He's a legend. I'm not sure she really knew what was going on. But it was a great moment."

Click here to see a picture of Mel B and Phoenix Chi meeting Nelson Mandela.

Also, Mel B happened to cause a bit of a stir during her performance, with her low cut top revealing more than she intended as the lacing on her corset gave way to show part of her breasts.

Emma Admits Smoking
Regarding the recent story in which Emma was caught smoking at a restaurant, she later went to The Mirror's 3am girls (the people responsible for writing the story in The Mirror) with the following:

"Yes I do smoke but it's not something I'm proud of. I am a role model and I think it sets a bad example if I'm seen having a cigarette. It isn't something I want to be encouraging young people to do."

Emma Furious After Being Caught Smoking
-= Rumor Warning =-

Emma Bunton lost her temper with a camera crew when she was filmed smoking in a London restaurant, according to today's edition of UK paper The Mirror.

It reports that Emma was with boyfriend Jade Jones at Cafe de Paris in London for the launch of the venue's new club night, Sign. But also in attendance were a TV crew from Stars Behaving Badly - a TV program featuring the misbehaviour and extreme demands of celebrities.

Whilst the crew were filming at the restaurant, Emma inadvertently wandered into shot smoking a cigarette. Realising what she had done, she demanded that the crew give her the tape.

'Witnesses' to the event said that Emma shouted:

"Do you want me to sue you, do you want me to take you to court? I have a clean-living image to protect and I don't want to be filmed smoking a cigarette. I'm just here with some friends so don't you ever show that on television."

Emma's boyfriend, Jade then decided to get involved and the situation became even more heated. Then a member of the TV crew, suggested:

"Look darling, if you want to have a healthy image, here's an idea - give up smoking."

The report also mentions that Emma is a very light smoker and is trying to give up. Victoria smokes up to 10 a day, Mel B is said to have called in a hypnotist to help her give up a 20-a-day habit while the only member of the band not to indulge is the healthy Mel C.

-= Rumor Warning =-

Ahhh, God bless Melanie C.. :) Also, if there's any truth to this, the crew member quoted has got quite a good brain there, I think.

"She's seen as the least sexy [of the Spice Girls] and the one whom people know the least about. That's the reason there's all these stories about her - it's the Michael Jackson effect."

The documentary is to made by Melanie's C's own company, 'Red Girl Productions Ltd'.

Another Beckham Mansion?
David & Victoria Beckham are looking to purchase a 650,000 13th-Century 11-bedroom 3-story Trewornan Manor on the beautiful north Cornwall coast(UK). The house is just outside the popular resort Rock and is on popular demand as there have been 300 inquiries and 40 viewings in the past two weeks. A source has said:

"The asking price is in excess of pounds 650,000 but to be honest we are expecting a lot more than that. A lot of the interest has been people with addresses in rich areas of London."

The Beckhams have until April 27th to put in an offer for the house.

MelC On Eating Disorder
Melanie C talked more about the eating disorder she had(Story). Mel said:

"It becomes a complete obsession and all you think about is what you've eaten today, what you're going to eat today, what you're going to eat tomorrow and whether you're going to put on weight. It doesn't leave any room for your life, you may as well not be alive. I have to admit, putting on the weight, I feel more like a woman now. My hormone levels were all over the place because I was underweight. The physical effects on your body make you infertile. The best thing I ever did was face up to my problem and get over it. I may not have the perfect figure but at last I feel alive and free again."

"When we are together, it's complete chaos around us and that's never something I was completely comfortable with.

Emma VS Racism
Baby Spice Emma Bunton will be teaming up with her boyfriend Jade Jones to help battle racism. Emma is of course white, and her boyfriend Jade is black. The two plan to release a song about the issue of racism and take part in some TV interviews about the subject. Emma and Jade were inspired to do this in part because of the racist threats which Mel B recieved last year(Story). Emma says:

"My mum has absolutely no problem with me dating a black person and our friends and families have been very supportive. I suppose we are quite sheltered from the kind of people who would make comments. But we're not daft and I'm sure there are a lot of people who don't like it. Jade and I talk a lot about trying to do something to fight racism. We are a high-profile couple and in a great position to address the situation."

Victoria VS Tarts
-= Rumor Warning =-

Posh Spice Victoria Beckham allegedly had a big argument just before Christmas with a fashion boutique named Tarts, which is near her family home in Hertfordshire. Victoria & sister Louise were once big fans of the store, but are now boycotting it because they believe that the store was trying to use Victoria's name to attract publicity. The shop's manager Dimitri Stylianides says:

"Victoria phoned me directly. I don't want to go into too much detail about what she said because I'm scared of her. She's got more money than me, and I'm worried for my business. At the end of the day she got the hump with us because she thought we were using her name to get publicity. She thought we were cashing in. I think a lot of it came from her PR agents because we'd already had a call from them saying we should be paying Victoria for all this free publicity. I couldn't believe it. We've managed without her for over 25 years. We've been around for as long as she's lived."

The shop's co-owner, Brenda Gawen, who has allegedly been a close friend of Victoria's since her teenage years says:

"Victoria was really angry when Dimitri took the call from Victoria. She accused us of trying to sell stories to the Press for money. We are not like that. People kept phoning us and asking us to spill the beans and we always said 'No'. She asked for money and Dimitri told her, 'We've only ever been given pounds 20 by The Big Breakfast for petrol, but you can have half of that if you want'. He was quite annoyed because we work really hard in here, but she wanted a cut of the profits. She's just so greedy. We would give her free clothes and discounts all the time. That's what we do for all our loyal customers. We tried to treat her like we treat all our regulars. She was really, really rude and she was swearing."

"We have always said we'd have Zimmer frames and be saying 'I'll tell you what I want, what I really, really want.' We love working together. We love writing and touring together. We just thought we'd take this year to do our own things"

She said the band would be like the Rolling Stones and still perform together in their fifties.

Emma Set To Enter UK Charts at No. 1
Emma's new single, 'What Took You So Long?' is being tipped to enter Number 1 this week, in the UK charts.

Which means it will stop the 3 week reign by the UK Popstars, Hear'Say. Though Emma also has a couple of likely competitors which include Feeder, Ash, Li'l Bow Wow, Modjo and the Australian Popstars, Bardot.

But an HMV Chart expert, told Ananova that he thinks Emma's pretty much got it in the bag:

"Emma's single is a good song and has had loads of airplay across the board. Hear'Say's sales are slowing down now, and she is after all a Spice Girl, so her track should be number 1 on Sunday."

Oh, and don't forget Emma's holding a chat today on the Spice Girls C3 site at 6.30pm UK time, which also happens to equal 17.30 GMT. So, I hope you've already got your questions in!

MelC Bashes Hear'Say

"I think it makes everything we've done look cheap. I hope Hear'Say are happy. They're in a very controlled environment, I feel like they've already been exploited."

More Holiday Emma?
-= Rumor Warning =-

Emma Bunton will potentially be doing more holiday reports for BBC's Holiday show. She worked on the show earlier this year in the Bahamas as you may remember she had that dolphin scare(Story). A source for the show said:

"She's perfect for the job. She's bubbly, pretty and the viewers identify with her, especially the younger ones. Nothing has been finalised but she's being lined up for more programmes."

Emma & Jade Argument
Baby Spice Emma Bunton and her boyfriend Jade Jones had a bit of a bust up the other night causing Emma to miss her appearance at a celebrity auction to help raise cash for sick children at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Emma pulled up outside of Planet Hollywood in London but refused to get out of her limo and she was shouting on her mobile phone, and ended up ordering the limo driver to drive off. Jade at the same time was somewhere else also yelling on his mobile phone. Emma came back but again ended up not getting out of the limo and speeding off. She did appear however on Channel 4's(UK) The Priority an hour before all this. One onlooker said:

"When Emma pulled up, she clearly wasn't happy. She was shouting down her phone and then drove off. At the same time, Jade was having a row on his phone. It was obvious they were talking to each other and having a tiff. Emma's seat remained empty for the rest of the night. Jade chatted to his mates but didn't seem to be having a good time. He left as soon as the night ended, as if he had something to sort out. Emma is a big supporter of Great Ormond Street so it was a shame she didn't turn up. There were a lot of disappointed guests."

Posh VS Fake Autographs
Victoria was shopping at the Bluewater Shopping Centre, in Kent(England) when she spotted some autographed pictures of her husband David Beckham for sale at autograph shop, GT Recollections. Victoria accused the store manager that they are fakes and nothing like David's real autograph. The owner claims that they are real and he purchased them from a reputable collector. Victoria says:

"It's so unfair on parents who spend a lot of money buying these for their children, and they're not the real thing. They shouldn't be allowed to get away with this."

The store manager Tim McManus says:

"I bought these off a chap who collects autographs. He is the most reputable collector I know of. She seemed very upset, claiming it wasn't his signature and said some uncomplimentary things about us. We asked her to leave us a number so we could check it out, but she said she didn't have time. She said she knows what her husband's signature like, but it was explained to me that what he does now is not a full signature, but just a squiggle. I don't know if Victoria was aware of that or not. I've removed the one she complained about and intend to contact David. I want to apologise for upsetting her, but I also want to resolve this in a respectful and friendly atmosphere. But she wasn't very respectful in the shop, in all honestly. She was very aggressive... but this is a small family business and we like all our customers to be happy."

Victoria's New BMW
For British Mother's Day, Victoria got a four-wheel drive BMW X5. Her husband David Beckham paid 36,000 for it, plus 20,000 worth of additional features such as a DVD player, satellite navigation system, and all the wood fittings in the car were replaced with stainless steel. The car has a personalised license plate: Y1 DVB So if you are ever rollin' around England and see that plate, you know who's in the car!

MelC Scared By Fans
Melanie C ran off the stage when 15 Canadian fans at Calgary's Jack Singer Concert Hall rushed the stage to get close to Melanie.

"She was just singing 'Turn To You' when the kids climbed up onto the stage," an onlooker explained. "It must have been pretty scary for her."

The hall is usually just used for classical concerts so the security people couldn't expect something like that to happen.

"Poor" MelB
-= Rumor Warning =-

Melanie B plans to sell her 3.5 million house because she is out of cash due to her getting divorced and the lack of success with "Forever" and "Hot".

She paid 620,000 to her ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar, went on expensive holidays and bought gifts for family and friends - now she is concerned about her future and wants to make sure that her money lasts for the rest of her life.
