Victoria Is A Brunette Again!
Victoria has gone back to her old hair! She spent eight hours at the Jesssica Galvan Hair Studio in Los Angeles on Friday getting her hair done. She tried to keep it a secret but somebody snapped a low quality shot of her through the salon's window. A "friend" says:

"The girls have all changed since their heyday but Victoria feels it's important for the fans to see her as she was. Her dark bob made her the person she is. So she felt it was right to return to the same style. She's thrilled. It's made her feel and look years younger. Hubby David loved the blonde locks, but now she's a brunette again she's feeling sexier than ever."

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!! The blonde crap is over!!

Meet Beau!
26 Oct 2007

Hi everyone, So sorry for the wait, but here is out beautiful little boy Beau. As you can see from the picture he is a bonny little soul, and he makes us so happy, he's the best thing that's ever happened to us. He's 10 weeks old now and we can't believe how quickly time flies. We're all getting ready to go to L.A, we've packed his little bag with all his goodies. He's started to sleep through the night now so mummy is getting some well deserved sleep before the tour : ) I've been rehearing with Geri and Mel C the last few days, and I really think it's going to be a great show. We shot the video for Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) the other day and I didn't stop laughing all day with the other girls, it was great having the gang back together. I really hope you love the single as much as we do. Anyway that's all for now, will try to send you a blog from LA and let you know how the rehearsals are going. See you all soon, Lots of love, Emma xx

Spice Girls To Be Completely Naked At Concerts
Mel C revealed that the Spice Girls will be completely naked for a portion of their upcoming world tour, not just body-suit naked like before. Although you won't get to see anything (unless something good happens!) because the girls will be hiding behind various props. A source says:

"It is their raunchiest routine ever and they just can't wait. It is going to be no holds barred. But they're all in great shape, so why shouldn't they just go for it?"

Mel C said:

"We do actually go naked in the show, completely."

Mel B's Dancing Commitment Creates Tension
-= Rumor Warning =-

Mel B's continued success on Dancing with the Stars (US) is causing tension with the Spice Girls. Members are afraid that Mel's commitment to practicing for the show will interfere with Spice Girls tour rehearsals. A source says:

"The biggest tension right now is Mel B doing Dancing With The Stars. If it carries on into rehearsal time, it could be very difficult. No one really factored in her making it through to these latter stages of the show. She may well win the damn thing, and no one ever envisaged that."

Info On Tesco Ad

In a second commercial the girls go shopping for presents together but start ducking and diving to avoid being spotted. A Tesco spokesman said:

"We are thrilled to be working with the Spice Girls for our Christmas campaign. We feel that the new commercials really emphasise Tesco's commitment to offer something different and exciting this Christmas."

The first ad starts to air on November 12th, the same day as the Greatest Hits album release (UK).

Geri On Single Motherhood
Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell spoke recently about single motherhood:

"So many women today are single parents, I don't feel different. I think you get out of life what you put into it and Bluebell was a beautiful accident. I feel blessed to have her. I'm learning every day as a mother. I'm learning that she's like a flower that thrives when it gets sunlight, and the sunlight is confidence, and I feel that when I'm confident it gives her self-esteem. And that gives me motivation to go on and be the best. At first I was a single, young Bridget Jones kind of woman. I was operating in a selfish world. Now I'm a mother, my compassion has expanded."

Regarding the prospect of adoption, she says:

"I'm open about it and I'm educating myself at the moment."

Spice Girls To Pole Dance On Tour

The Spice Girls have been taking pole dancing lessons at London's Soho club. They are planning a sexy pole dancing portion for their upcoming world tour. The girls will be joined by an all-American male dance crew during this segment. A source says:

"The girls all agreed that a pole dancing section in the show would be fabulous and sexy. And they wanted to get some proper lessons from professional dancers. They chose the Soho Revue Bar with all its fabulous kitsch decor and they liked the idea of something a bit seedy."

Mel C Against Taking Babies On Tour
In an interview with Closer magazine (UK), Mel C says:

"Travelling around the world and living out of a suitcase is no place for a baby. I feel that if I'm lucky enough to be blessed with a kid, then I want to be a regular mother. I'd want to be at home taking them to school and being there full-time. I wouldn't want to be travelling all over the world with them strapped to my back. I'm not criticising anyone else. That's just how I'd want it. I am sure Emma is nervous about taking Beau on tour because he'll only be three-months-old."

Victoria Corset Training
-= Rumor Warning =-

Victoria wants to get into shape by trying corset training. This is a body molding procedure in which you wear a corset for extended periods of time. Victoria got this idea from her friend, burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, who used thist technique to change the shape of her own figure. Dita says:

"Corset training is perfectly safe, provided it is done carefully. By binding the waist and following a specific eating routine, you can gradually reduce the waist. I used to sleep in my corset. Body-molding is a beautiful and complicated art."

Husband David Beckham is said to be worried about the health implications for his wife, though.

-= Rumor Warning =-

Worried for good reason.. this is what they used to do way back in the day, that causes your internal organs to be squished, collapse.. and women would faint cause they couldn't breathe, and die early. I don't know what kind of "safe" version Dita does, but yuck, yuck, and scary! I really hope this story is all rumor, else vic may be nearing the stage of needing help! Note that Vic has already been wearing some corset-like clothing.. and has a lung infection that won't heal.

Spice Girls Reunion Would Have Happened Without Mel C
In an interview with Closer magazine (UK), Melanie C talks about her fears of her eating disorder returning and the Spice Girls reunion. Mel says:

"The girls approached me and said they were getting together to do a world tour, a greatest hits album and a big goodbye, and I was like: 'Oh, no.' It was the last thing I wanted to hear. All four of them had spoken about it and it was set in stone. They basically said if I wanted to do it great but if I didn't want to do it then they were going to do it anyway. I'd always said I'd never do it. But I didn't want to miss out and have regrets. I also didn't want to be the person that stopped it being the complete five. I was scared I'd be the villain. The depression and everything else was in my thoughts during the decision process of whether to do the tour. It took me a long time to decide because it was something I never ever wanted to do. It was hard, so I didn't say yes immediately. I changed my mind every day, it was difficult. I've been on the straight and narrow for four years. But I had to be sensible and evaluate what I wanted to do. And I want this reunion. I'm happy with my body. I've reached a good place. I'm healthy but I like Guinness and crisps. Life's too short to worry about weight."

Bad Time At Headlines Video Shoot

The Spice Girls didn't have the best time at their video shoot for "Headlines" on Friday. Problems kept popping up and the video shoot ended up running until 3am. Geri was constantly meditating, sometimes causing delays, Victoria was demanding an assistant constantly follow her around with champagne and fruit, Mel B was jetlagged, Mel C was complaining about the delays, and Emma Bunton broke down and started crying towards the late hours due to all the problems. A source says:

"Things were very delayed. The director was tearing his hair out and threatening to walk. The girls were so tired and Emma was crying as the shoot just went on and on. Geri kept slowing things down by meditating and doing strange spiritual stuff. It's just like before but now their egos are even bigger."

The show is being revamped into a general competition for "those desperate for one last chance to make it." An insider supposedly says:

"It's very disappointing for all involved. The new format has absolutely nothing to do with finding a new Spice Girls. It couldn't be further away from the original plan."

Spice Furniture
-= Rumor Warning =-

The Spice Girls have signed a deal with a Norwegian retail giant to design a range of "modern woman" furniture. The designs will include sofas and chairs, floral print wallpaper, and colorful mirrors. A source says:

"It can't fail to work. The girls have something so individual about them. The company believes all five of the Spice Girls can each bring something unique to the furniture industry. They are sure the girls will be hugely successful selling their own designs. As well as tasteful animal prints, floral wallpaper and patterned lampshades, the plan is to extend the modern, uber-cool range to include luxurious mirrors in every colour of the rainbow. There are several meetings set to go ahead which will be arranged around the group’s hectic tour schedule. No exact figure about what they’ll earn has been discussed but it will definitely be around the £1 million each mark."

Melanie C recently told Cosmopolitan magazine (UK) about going into depression at the height of the Spice Girls' fame:

"When I was diagnosed with depression, I was relieved because I'd been wondering what the hell was wrong with me. But I was also quite shocked because I never really saw myself as a person who would be depressed. I suppose for anyone who grew up wanting to be famous, there’s an underlying insecurity. So when you’re thrust into that world, there are going to be repercussions. I became secretive and quite isolated in the band."

I put on 65 lbs during my pregnancy, and I’ve lost 40 lbs. With any kind of ballroom dancing you have to hold in your stomach. Now, even when I am walking around, I hold it in so it’s becoming flatter and flatter."

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the first blog!

Wow, there is so much to tell you! Things are really hotting up now with the tour preparations. Emma, Victoria, Geri and I had a fantastic meeting with Roberto Cavalli's team last week, the costumes for the tour are going to be AMAZING!! It's so exciting to work with such talented and lovely people, we feel very lucky.

I hope you've all been watching Mel B on Dancing With The Stars, she's doing brilliantly and we are all very proud. She's flying over today and we're going to be shooting our video for Headlines (Friendship Never Ends). We'll also be doing lots of filming for our documentary. It's really fun reminiscing and it is actually quite emotional.

I've got a busy couple of weeks promoting my solo single, This Time. I was in Manchester at The Key 103 awards on Wednesday evening and on the breakfast show yesterday morning, announcing our new gigs. I'll also be on Graham Norton, Loose Women and The One show so tune in for plenty of Spice gossip!

We really can't thank you enough for your amazing support, this tour is going to be incredible.

Not long to go guys!! SPICE UP YOUR LIFE!!

Lots of love,

Melanie C

"At first that made me laugh because it wasn't something that ever crossed my mind. And then it kind of pissed me off when I thought, 'Because I have short hair and am quite muscular with a few tattoos, am I the stereotypical lesbian?' I don't think it did me any harm. I've always had a huge lesbian and gay following and I'm really proud of that."

"She was offered a cup of coffee by one of the staff. But she wanted to know what kind of water it had been made with: bottled or tap. Obviously it was tap water and she said 'no, thank you'. The staff were bemused. Water is boiled anyway, so people didn't understand what the problem was."

A new message has been posted on the official Spice Girls website. The message officially announces the two new London concerts, more American shows to come, rescheduling, and also claims that all US & Canada shows are sold out, which isn't true. How would this be possible if it was? Los Angeles tickets as of today have gone on sale to the general public, which also contradicts what the message says. Here is the message from the official Spice Girls site:


12 shows have sold out in the UK through fans registering here on the spicegirls.com. Due to phenomenal public demand the SPICE GIRLS are pleased to announce two more dates at the London O2 Arena.

TUESDAY 15th and WEDNESDAY 16th JANUARY – London O2 Arena

Due to public demand these shows are being put on general sale from SAT 6th Oct @10am. To buy tickets call the box office on 0871 984 0002 / 0871 2200 260 / 0870 444 5556. If you have already registered and received your codes you can still buy tickets by going to www.ticketmaster.co.uk.


Vancouver, San Jose, Los Angeles and Las Vegas have all sold out through Spice Girl online registrations. This unbelievable demand from fans has meant that the SPICE GIRLS have now had to rearrange their USA shows and add more dates. Details to follow. To ensure you don't miss out register here for updates, and keep checking this site for details.

The NYC Situation
The Spice Girls' tour date for New York City has been canceled. Psych. That means "just kidding" for you internationals. There's a lot of emails coming in concerned about the NYC date and a lot of cancelation rumors flying around online. It has not been canceled as far as anyone knows, and it is extreeeeeemely doubtful that they would cancel that show. It is possible that it might be rescheduled, however.

The fact that the word "New York" doesn't appear on the official site tour map anymore doesn't mean much, since the dot is still there, and "New York" does appear if you view the page in other languages. It's probably just a glitch, as it's been extremely hectic, and they've even been posting info on the official site with spelling errors, etc.

There is probably some hold-up with finalizing the deal with a venue in New York, like maybe they are trying to add more shows in New York and are figuring out how it will all work before releasing tickets there.

The Spice Girls sold out their first London reunion concert in only 38 seconds! This is a new record for them. Their previous fastest sell out was 12 minutes for Madison Square Garden in New York (1998).

This doesn't make sense. I know I used ticketmaster (like everyone) to get tickets, and though it wasn't for London, I didn't get my transaction done the first time, and that was TWO minutes of time alloted, so I'm sure there must've been some people like me, who after two minutes had their tickets released back to the pool, so, how could it be 38 seconds, EVERY person had a perfect transaction and no tickets were put back into the pool for others to grab? Doesn't seem statistically possible.

Even More Concerts Added, Some To Be Rescheduled
Two more London concerts have been added to the Spice Girls reunion tour, January 6th and 8th. January 8th conflicts with the previously scheduled Shanghai concert, and a new message from the Spice Girls indicates that the concerts for China, Australia, South Africa, Argentina, and Toronto might be rescheduled. From the official site:
We are absolutely overwhelmed by the number of people who have already bought tickets to see us in the US and UK. Thank you so much.

Even though we have been able to add some more dates in the UK, we know that there are still many more fans who would love to be able to see us live.

We have therefore taken the very difficult decision to re-schedule some of the dates on our World Tour, in order to be able to perform in front of as many people as we can in our own country.

New dates at the O2 in London have just been announced and full details of all our shows will be posted here on www.thespicegirls.com - so keep checking.

If you've got a ticket - well done - we're looking forward to seeing you at one of the shows. IIf you haven't got one - keep trying and good luck.

Thank you for your support. We are all so excited and just can't wait to be up there on stage. Lots of love

Emma, Geri, Mel B, Melanie C, Victoria

Reunion concert count now = 23
