Donatella Versace To Design Tour Outfits
-= Rumor Warning =-

Fashion designer Donatella Versace will be designing the Spice Girls' reunion tour outfits. Her designs for the girls are supposedly quite risqué. A source says:

"Donatella was a big fan of the girls back in the day and as soon as she heard that a reunion was on the cards she submitted her ideas. There will be several different 'looks' for each of them and the clothes will be worth over £200,000. She wants the girls to retain their band personas but in a much less obvious way than before. Mel C won't be wearing ill-fitting sportswear - instead she'll have a really sexy wardrobe. Emma Bunton will wear stunning, elegant dresses with a playful touch. Donatella thinks they look better than many bands half their age and should show that off."

Geri On Fan Support
Geri yesterday had some words to say about the support of the Spice Girls' fans:
"I always felt in my heart the reunion had to happen and it was the right thing to do. Having said that, we haven't been together for many years, and so when we put up the availability to register to come and buy tickets, you don't know, maybe two people want to come [to see us], maybe lots. [3 million ticket registrations is] amazing and outrageous and beyond what we could have imagined. Of course that is, phew, it is very affirming and lovely to have that feedback. I feel very optimistic and positive. The point of this is to be a very fun experience and obviously the feedback that we have had is amazing and I think that the support and the encouragement from the world is almost like helping us to make this happen."

Hi Everybody!

WOW! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! We are so excited about the fantastic response that we have had from everybody registering to come and see us on tour. It means so much that people want to see the 5 of us together again on stage.

Now for some really cool news! We’ve had loads of messages from people all over the World asking why we weren’t performing in their Country. It’s impossible for us to perform everywhere but we thought why not let our fans decide where we play? This is your chance to turn your City in to “SPICE CITY”! All you need to do is tell us where you want to see us!

The City with the most votes will become “SPICE CITY” and we’ll definitely come and play there as part of our tour. It really is up to you to decide which City becomes “SPICE CITY” so get voting!

Lots of love

Emma Geri Mel B Melanie C Victoria

Spice Girls Tour To Extend To 50 Shows?
-= Rumor Warning =-

The Spice Girls' upcoming reunion tour, which was scheduled to have 11 dates, supposedly already has 14 more dates confirmed but their locations and details not released. Additionally, there are rumors that the girls are being pressured (primarily by Simon Fuller) to double that number of dates and do 50 shows. This is attributed to high demand for tickets, with over 2 million people registering for tickets at the girls' official site. The girls want to do a huge tour but are unsure of the expansion to a full 50 shows due to family responsibilities as well as Mel C and her solo career.

Geri has signed a contract with Spice Girls reunion management stating that she will not get pregnant during the reunion. She was the only one asked to sign such a contract. The contract was supposedly presented to her due to her being "loved up" with her new boyfriend Evgeny Lebedev, and talking about how she wants a sibling for her 14 month old daughter Bluebell Madonna. She was the only one management was really worried about getting pregnant at this time. Some sources say that she was either very upset that she was the only one asked to sign such a contract, and had to be calmed down by the rest of the girls, while another source says that "Geri is happy to sign anything that backs up her commitment as, even though she wants a baby, this reunion comes first."

LA Feels Like Home For Victoria
Victoria recently spoke to The Sun, telling them about life in L.A.:
"We've loved every minute so far. I can't see us going back. I already feel so much happier being in Los Angeles. This feels like a whole new start for us as a family. We can leave the negative stuff from Spain behind. The four years there weren't always easy. In Spain we didn't have much of a social life, whereas here we have got loads of friends and it just feels right. No one ever really came to visit us in Madrid, whereas everyone seems to want to come out here to see us. I was really nervous about David seeing the new house for the first time, but he loves it and so do the kids. David has no regrets. He's got a whole new challenge here in LA and that's what drives him. The decision to move here was very much about what would be good for the family and the boys have been so excited about it. They are getting ready to go to summer camp and make friends with kids from school."
Talking about personal life in L.A., she says:
"The fact is, David and I are very boring people. We don't go out much. A lot of the time we are at home watching telly and putting the kids to bed. I had to laugh recently. We were at Demi Moore's house with Ashton Kutcher and Penelope Cruz for dinner. We ended up playing dominoes, hardly rock and roll."
Regarding the bad reviews of her show Victoria Beckham: Coming To America, she says:
"I don't care. I'm not here to break America. My job is to support David and sort the kids."

Victoria Offered Royal Treatment By Galaxy Fan Club
"The Riot Squad", an LA Galaxy (David Beckham's soccer team) fan club have set Victoria Beckham up for royal treatment. They have purchased her a season pass and constructed a small, roped-off velvet throne for her to sit on at the game. They have also offered up bodyguard service. One of the few female members of the riot squad sends a message to Victoria:

"By all means, sit up in the box and eat a prawn sandwich before the game, but then come down and be with the people."

Another member says:

"What better way to see the Galaxy than with us? She'll have the time of her life."

No word yet whether Mrs. Beckham has accepted the offer.

"Coming to America" Gets Bad Reviews
Victoria's Monday night NBC special, Victoria Beckham: Coming to America, tied for second most watched show during its time slot, losing out to a rerun of Wife Swap on ABC and tying CBS's reruns.

The show has generally recieved negative reviews in the press, with some outlets saying that the show has "bombed". The New York Post gave it zero stars and described it as "relentlessly self-promoting", additionally describing the show as:

"an orgy of self-indulgence so out of whack with reality that you'll sit there slack-jawed at the gall of these people who think we're that stupid. If this weren't a one-shot deal and people were exposed to her vapid, condescending behaviour on a weekly basis, she'd not just be unwelcome in America, she'd be run out on a rail - whatever that means." "Excuuuuuuse me, but enough already with Posh and Becks, or Pish and Tush or whatever's the name of these over-hyped, over bleached Brits who came to take the colonies by storm."

The prestigious New York Times described Victoria as "somewhat famous for being sort of famous and is photographed a lot in Britain." and also said:

"She does appear to be pleasant and not without a sense of humour but that isn't quite enough to carry viewers through an hour of house hunting, sunbathing and applying for a driver's licence. There has to be something going on behind the scenes because there is no other way to explain so much time and videotape spent on the moving arrangements of Mr Beckham's wife. If she can retain viewers past the first commercial break, then the results will be conclusive: either there is a vast, media-controlling conspiracy afoot, or there is no such thing as celebrity ditz-fatigue."

-- July 21st: Corrected placing of show (from third to tying for second). Thanks Michael McBride.

Personally I found the show to be very boring, and it was really rough to get through it to the end. If I wasn't in this position, I would have turned it off probably half way through. So, the SpiceNews review is also negative.

Spice Tour Not Environmentally Friendly
The Spice Girls are being critisized by British environmentalists from greenhelpline.com for planning a very polluting tour. Virgin records is supposedly going to provide Learjets for each of the girls so that they can take their families, assistants, and entourages individually with them. The website calculated that the Spice Girls will generate an immense 9,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide due to flights alone. The author of the report says:

"It's everyone's responsibility to limit the damage we're doing to our planet. But clearly, some celebrities feel they don't count. While we have events like Live Earth to raise awareness, many stars are still taking huge liberties such as using private jets. Even small steps can help us cut down our carbon footprints - like turning off lights, insulating our homes or switching to greener energy. Let's just hope the Spice Girls have to rethink before they fly in the face of good advice."

Victoria Special Airs This Weekend
What was originally to be a reality tv show, Victoria's move to America will now simply be a 1 hour special on NBC. Posh spent much time in Europe where cameras didn't go along, and in the end there wasn't that much footage. Her children will not be shown in the special and her husband only appears for a short time. Victoria said of the tv special:
”This isn't a reality show, it's a documentary about me. It's funny. People really get to see what I’m really like. I have quite a dry sense of humor, which I hope is going to translate to Americans. I'm incredibly blessed and I wanted to show that to everybody. I'm just a normal girl from London living quite a surreal life.”
The NBC special is titled Victoria Beckham: Coming to America and airs this Monday (July 16th) at 8pm.

It will be rerun on Bravo on Thursday (July 19th) at 11pm and Friday (July 20th) at 7pm.

Beckham Move Coming Soon
Victoria & David Beckham are ready to actually move into their new house this month. Their new home is located in Beverly Hills, has 13,000 square feet of space, and is valued at $22 million. The couple will be neighboring Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes, who they are good friends with. Victoria says that the scientology issue has never come up in conversation between the couples. She also stated that her boys think they are actually moving to Disneyland and also mentioned that her husband David Beckham will be going on tour with the Spice Girls. Victoria denied any intent to gain stardom after the move, saying:
"I must be the only person in Los Angeles who doesn't want to be in films. I had a lot of fun doing the documentary but I wouldn't say I'm going to be the next TV star. We'll see what people make of this. We (Spice Girls) are not starting out again. We are not making a new album. We are celebrating the past. I want my kids to see mommy up on stage doing what I used to do. I am excited about the tour but I am certainly not using this as a springboard to launch any form of solo career."
Victoria said that she is most interested in her family and her jeans, sunglasses, and perfume business. She also thinks that the paparazzi will not bother her too much in L.A.:
"They are probably going to realise that we are actually quite boring and that we don't do that much. We stay in a lot as a family and there are so many famous people in Los Angeles who are much more famous than myself and David. We're going to be quite low-key."

Geri Still Bulimic?

Geri At Live Earth
Geri was part of this weekend's Live Earth concerts. She introduced Duran Duran at Wembly Stadium. Geri said:
"Hello. How are you? I've missed you! Hello in the back, you alright? Can you believe I'm getting back together with those girls? What am I thinking, right? *laughs* Well, I have to be honest, I hadn't thought very much about climate change at all until I became a mother. And what with this freaky weather, well I can't really ignore it, can you? No. So, I really feel that we have a responsibility for our children to make a difference and really take it seriously. But, as well as that, it's an absolute honor to be here today, and, I know this is a bit cheesy but, I tell you what I really really really want, *ooohhh*, is to introduce a legendary band. They've been going much longer than the Spice Girls, over 20 years. They have a song called "Planet Earth". You may have heard of them. It's Duran Duran.
There is also a follow-up video interview with Geri here on MSN. Geri talks about her excitement to be on stage at Wembly stadium as well as the reunion with the girls.

Therapist To Join Tour
-= Rumor Warning =-

There will be a therapist going on tour with the girls according to the Daily Star Sunday. A source told the paper:

"This tour will be massive and record bosses do not want anything getting in the way - least of all the girls themselves. They want Girl Power to come back in style, not end in arguments between the girls. So taking a therapist along to smooth out any problems makes sense."

"The therapist will be available any time the girls need someone to talk to so that any disagreements do not get out of hand. It would be a disaster if any of them walked out mid-way through the tour."

Spice Girls Working On New Material
-= Rumor Warning =-

According to an article in Entertainment Weekly, the girls are working on recording new material right now. A representative for the group says that "Four or five new tracks have been worked on," and that the girls are waiting to see "if everything's right" before deciding whether to include the new songs on the Greatest Hits album.

-= Rumor Warning =-

Rumor warned it even though Entertainment Weekly is a reliable source because maybe the rep got the number of songs wrong or something. But very exciting if true.

Spice Girls To Rehearse In L.A.
As a provision in the reunion contract required by Victoria, the Spice Girls will rehearse for their tour in Los Angeles. Victoria would reportedly not have otherwise agreed to the reunion. The condition is least popular with Mel C, Geri, and Emma. Emma is the most apprehensive as she is scheduled to have a newborn baby next month and will be taking it along.

Emma Feared Infertility
Emma, like Mel C currently, had also feared infertility, though she was actually diagnosed with endometriosis (a fertility-threatening condition) in 2004. Emma said:
"I'm unbelievably excited. I've been worried for such a long time that I might not be able to be a mom. I thought, 'I've been so bloody lucky in my life that maybe not getting pregnant is payback.'"

Mel B Is The Poorest Spice
-= Rumor Warning =-

Melanie B is the poorest of the Spice Girls. The Sun newspaper reports:

"She spent so much money in the course of doing it that she now has very little left of the millions the girls all earned. Mel bought a huge house in the country which she had decorated with garish leopardskin. The matching his 'n' hers leopard-print toilets were so ghastly they put potential buyers off buying the place. She struggled to sell it on and was forced to knock down the price. But Mel was very generous with her family and friends. She bought them houses and was constantly on luxurious holidays with her entire family and 50 friends. She always picked up the bill."

A source close to Mel B says:

"Mel was really generous with all that. She often took stylists, hairdressers and entourage on holiday with her and she paid for the lot. It felt like she was on one big holiday when the band split. She just went all round the world staying at fabulous places." All this spending combined with her lack of a prenuptial agreement with ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar (having had to hand over a large portion of her fortune to him, buy him a house, and court-ordered financial support) has made Mel B the poorest of the Spice Girls.

Mel B's "Sex Addiction"
Some stories popping up again about Mel B's taste for sex. Even though this is pretty well known, I'm gonna wrap the warning around it as some of the details are rumor-esque.

-= Rumor Warning =-

Max Beesley, who she dated for 2 years starting in 2000, apparently told a friend:

"She's so rampant she leaves me exhausted."

Ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar said:

"She changed from being the unadventurous sexual woman when we first met to absolutely rampant and demanding."

A reporter for a new story in The Sun says:

"She is a real man eater, it is as if she is addicted to men and sex and she always had to have a boyfriend. Sometimes they even overlapped. She was spotted kissing DJ-turned actor Goldie at London's Ivy restaurant while still married to Gulzar."

An inside source at the time said:

"Mel and Goldie had sex. They were both bang up for it. He went round boasting that they were at it so much that Mel could hardly walk for days afterwards and damaged her back."

-= Rumor Warning =-

Nothing wrong with a healthy sexual appetite!! Well... maybe if you're hurting you're back then..

Melanie C Fears Infertility
Mel C, the only Spice Girl who has not concieved a child, has told England's The Sun newspaper that she is affraid that she may be infertile. She blames her eating disorder/obsession with maintaining her image during the earlier Spice Girls days. Melanie says:
"It took me a long time to recover from the whole experience that was the Spice Girls. I had put pressure on myself to look a certain way. I found it hard to feel worthy of what was happening because it was so incredible. I went to the gym constantly and trained constantly. I wasn't eating properly. I wanted to get as perfect as I could knowing that perfection is impossible and that got me very sick. I was underweight and my image was unhealthy. I was living off adrenaline and wasn't taking care of myself. There were kids who were looking up to me. I want to rectify any of the damage I caused. I got so thin when I wasn't eating my periods stopped and my bones became very fragile. I may have done permanent damage."

"We're all in our 30s so it's time to be focusing on family. The old clock is ticking. I'm happy with my situation but I want to be a mum and I'd like more than one child. I hope I'm still in with a chance."

Stop To The Top
As many of you may already be aware, there is a campaign by fans to get the Spice Girls' 1998 song Stop to the current #1 position on the UK Singles Chart. Stop is the only Spice Girls single to not have made it to #1, and now fans are trying to rectify that through the modern age of digital downloads. The singles week has just begun and the campaign is having some success, as the single is showing up on main pages of UK download sites. It would be pretty crazy (historic?) if a song that wasn't officially re-released made it to number 1. You help by downloading the song from one (or more) of these sites, but only download once per site or else it will not count:

Go to the official myspace campaign page for more details.

Victoria Claims 34B
Posh Spice gained quite a bit of attention at last week's Spice Girls reunion with all the cleavage she was showing. Back in the day, it was Geri and Mel B who had the biggest boobs. Victoria's response to the attention is:

Geri Had To Bed To Get Back In
-= Rumor Warning =-

Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell apparently begged Posh Spice Victoria Beckham to let her back into the group. It was not difficult for Geri to convince the other girls to let her back in, but Victoria was a roadblock. An "inside source" told England's The Sun:

"Geri began getting in contact with Victoria again in 2004. She knew how hurt Victoria was but she also knew how to push the right buttons. Geri broke down in front of Victoria, apologised for leaving the band in the way she did and begged for her forgiveness. She also told Victoria how awful her life was at the time. She was lonely, confused, didn't have a man and didn't even have a place to call home. Victoria started to feel sorry for Geri" ...and eventually decided to let her back in.

High Demand For Spice Girls Tickets
Demand is proving to be high early on for Spice Girls reunion tour tickets. According to the girls' spokesperson, there were over 1 million ticket applications registered with the official website just one day after the announced comeback. The site is getting over 10 ticket applications per second and representatives for the group expect 5 million applications by the middle of this week.

10 apps/sec seems a bit unbelievable, but who knows..

Spice Girls Fighting
-= Rumor Warning =-

British tabloid newspaper News Of The World is reporting Spice Girls infighting and promoters' struggle to keep them together. The article claims that on the outside the girls appear happy and excited, but that they have already started to fight with each others as there are too many egos in the group, especially now. Mel B allegedly refused to meet the girls at a hotel the night before the reunion announcement, instead opting to meet up with her boyfriend, and also showing up late to the girls' appointments, with Mel C apparently becoming upset enough to be asked to be seated away from her for the press conference. Geri pissed off the other girls by greeting fans first instead of waiting for the girls to come out at the same time as planned. Victoria is upset by Geri stealing the spotlight. Geri also apparently caused a high amount of tension when she saw Mel B's baby, Angel, and remarked that she looks so much like her father (Eddie Murphy), which almost caused Mel B to blow up, the other girls looking onward terrified. Oh, and Mel C wants to do interviews alone. Promoters are trying to not have all the girls in the same place at the same time for now, or having it occur as little as possible so that nothing bad happens before the reunion tour.

-= Rumor Warning =-

Sounds like some intense, serious-assed bullshit, as the article also claims Emma as not being supportive of the reunion, HAH. Stupid.

Emma Blog Update
Emma Bunton has recently updated her extremely cute website's blog, talking about her upcoming delivery and revealing that the girls had their first new official photo shoot the day after the reunion was announced:

29 Jun 2007

Hope you are all OK? Sorry I havent updated my blog for a while but I've been so busy preparing everything for my happy arrival (or should that be nappy arrival!). Not long to go now!
Oh, and there is the small matter of the Spice Girls getting back together. I know, I cant believe it either, I have really wanted to tell you all and it has been so hard not revealing the good news. I am so excited about being back with my best friends again, we had a really good time at the press conference yesterday, it bought back all the wonderful things we have shared.
Today we are at our first official photo shoot as a group and its brilliant. There are so many people here but once we get into the swing of the shoot we will forget about them and start to concentrate on the photos
Anyway I'd better go, Melanie is trying to nick my Ribena!
Speak to you all soon

News And Notes From The Press Conference
In case you haven't watched the entire Spice Girls Reunion press conference, some interesting notes from the conference include:
  • The girls talking about possibly recording new material.

  • They will be performing songs from Forever on the tour.

  • Stating that the purpose of this reunion is for the fans and to give the "proper goodbye" that they never did.

  • The girls are open to adding more shows if there is enough demand.

  • Mel C getting back at Daily Mail reporter Richard (Littlejohn?) for his article stating that the girls will be using new technology to make their voices on tune. The satisfying exchange occurred after Richard identified himself to ask a question:

    Mel C: I've got a bone to pick with you Mr. Daily Mail.
    Richard: Yes?
    Mel C: Was it your article yesterday about that new technology that we're using to make our voices on tune?
    Richard: That's correct, yeah
    Mel C: What.. a load.. of shit.

    She was followed up by the other girls critisizing the Daily Mail's articles about them in general.

Spice Girls Reunited!
The Spice Girls have reunited!! After months of rumors, all five original Spice Girls are back together. They held a press conference today at London's O2 arena at which they announced an 11 city world-tour. Check the tour dates and how to get tickets at their new website: thespicegirls.com. They have posted the following message on their site:
Hey everybody!! We're back!! Can you believe it!!

We've come together for an exclusive World Tour and this is the only place to register your details online! Just click the link below, choose which city you want to see us in, and fill in your information. Who knows if this will ever happen again, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity! To make it fair, we will randomly pick who gets to buy tickets. This is a chance for you, our real fans to come and see us - the last chance to dance!

Girl Power is back and stronger than ever. What are you waiting for.....

Lots of love

Emma, Geri, Mel B, Mel C, Victoria

They are truly going back to their roots, as they are partnered together once again with 19 Entertainment and Simon Fuller. The Spice Girls do not at this point plan to release any new material and say that they're getting back together for nostalgic purposes. They do not intend to stay together after the tour--Geri describes this as a probable one-time moment and it's "now or never", further describing the reunion akin to a one night stand. Victoria said: "For us we're celebrating the past, we're going to do a small tour and then that's probably going to be it."

They will, however, be releasing a greatest hits album to coincide with the tour, as well as a tv documentary. Rumors are already circulating that if the tour is successful, new material could follow, but Mel C has strongly stated in a recent interview that she does not want to record new Spice Girls material. In response to questions about her previously strong resistance to getting back together with the group at all, Mel C said: "A girl's allowed to change her mind. This is something that we've only seriously started discussing this year. We wanted to say thank you to our fans. It just feels very right for us."

The girls made some humerous comments regarding their old wardrobe. Mel B: "I will be wearing leopard skin and Geri will have her Union Jack dress on." and Mel C chimed in with "I want to wear my tracksuit again. I will be going down the market looking for a shell suit." Though there was some seriousness mixed in as Mel C then said "Hats off to our characters." Victoria added: "We didn't know what we would all be wearing, but we look the same as we used to. We still have the same images and they haven't really changed."

The girls are rumored to be getting cool few million dollars each for this tour.

Enough talk, time for some media!! Videos:
