Emma's No Whites Diet
Emma Bunton is going on a "no whites diet" in order to lose weight for the Spice Girls reunion tour after having her baby. This "no whites diet" means no bread, pasta, rice, or cream cakes. One may think this conflicts with her adverstising for Prego, but Prego supports her, saying:

"There are many alternative methods for Emma to use the Prego pasta sauces without the pasta. She can have pasta sauce over meatballs, use over sandwiches, and many other fun and creative recipes that Prego offers."

Victoria Depressed
-= Rumor Warning =-

Victoria is unhappy with her new life in Los Angeles. She is not having a good time and is feeling homesick. A source says:

"Things are not going well for them in LA. Victoria has been particularly upset and sobbed to David that their move may have been a mistake. She feels lonely and homesick. Jennifer Lopez and Victoria were getting on well but are no longer in touch. Jen doesn’t want to be caught in the hoopla surrounding the Beckhams. [But Victoria] is determined to make a go of it in LA and she and David will persevere."

Another source says:

"She's looking dreadful. Her skin's bad again and she's so thin and worn out. She's been complaining that the weight of the world is on her shoulders. Victoria's frail. And she hasn't even started her vocal lessons yet, it's been a long time since she last sang."

Posh Spice may be joining the Pussycat Dolls, who have asked her to join them for a few upcoming performances. A source says:

"They've been blown away by Victoria since she arrived in LA. They love her style and think she has the perfect figure for the group. They are all huge Spice Girl fans and can't wait to have her on stage with them."

Pussycat Doll Jessica Sutta recently said:

"I love Victoria! When I was 14, my mum actually bought me a Posh doll because she was my favourite Spice Girl. I still have the doll up in my house and I'm definitely going to see the Spice Girls concert in Los Angeles and get the doll signed. I have also been practising my Posh pout!"

Other singers/celebrities who have joined the Pussycat Dolls for performances in the past include Christina Aguilera, Carmen Electra, Jessica Simpson, and Britney Spears.

British TV War Over Spice Girls
Highly competitive British TV networks BBC and ITV are going at it over trying to get the girls to appear on their respective hit shows, Strictly Come Dancing, and The X-Factor. A source for ITV says:

"There have been discussions, but it would be difficult to get them on the final X-Factor because they are playing a gig in London that night. The solution is to do a live feed from their concert. They could also do a masterclass with the finalists and advise them on how to deal with fame. It would be a ratings winner for sure."

..while a source for the BBC says:

"The girls could perform a song or simply come down for the evening and give a few comments on the performances of the celebrity dancers. We would love them to make an appearance in some capacity."

David Beckham Designing For Spice Girls
-= Rumor Warning =-

Victoria's husband, David Beckham, is designing some outfits for the Spice Girls to wear on their upcoming reunion tour - an idea which girls are behind. He is making all black outfits, with a different theme for each Spice Girl. A source says:

"David has been helping out a lot ahead of the Spice Girls tour, which starts in December, and has offered to give them fashion advice. He has been looking at pictures of Julien Macdonald's collection on the Internet and has also studied other designer collections. He is drawing different strengths from various fashion designers, but obviously Victoria will have the final say."

He has also been helping Victoria practice her dancing for the tour, since newly assigned Spice Girls choreographer Jamie King has told the girls to ask their men to help them learn the new moves.

Mel B's Parenting Called Into Question
Tonia Lamere, a former housekeeper for Melanie B, says that Mel had left her children with her for days at a time, unannounced, when she eloped to Las Vegas with Stephen Belafonte. She was left to take care of the 8 year old Phoenix Chi and 2 month old Angel Iris. Tonia says:

"One evening of baby-sitting turned into four days! The child was sick, there was no nanny, and when Mel called, she never even asked about the baby."

Tonia also said that she had to buy food for both girls out of her own pocket while Mel was gone. A spokesperson for Mel B has denied the story, also saying:

"Melanie is a hands-on mother completely dedicated to the upbringing of her children and the well-being of her entire family."

Jennifer Lopez To Tour With Spice Girls?
Jennifer Lopez, who is friends with Victoria, may be the supporting act for the Spice Girls on the US leg of their tour. J-Lo says:

"I'd love to get back out there on tour and I'd really like to perform on the same stage as the Spice Girls. Even before we were friends, Posh was always my favourite."

A source close to the band added the rumor that tour organizers want to get similarly high profile supporting acts for the rest of the world tour. The source says:

"The girls want to appeal to all generations and produce a show that will go down in history. They have a hit-list of people they want and so far everyone is saying yes. They even joked about asking Robbie Williams (Geri Halliwell and Melanie Chisholm’s ex-boyfriend) to join them."

Mel B's Trainer Speaks
Melanie B's personal trainer Joey Kormier, 44, recently spoke about Mel getting back into shape. He says:

"Mel looks incredible. She's never been in better shape despite being a mum of two. She works hard, the results speak for themselves. Mel has been a joy to work with. I started working with her five days after her baby was born. Can you believe that? She was determined to get back her sensational looks, and she has. There's no single exercise that does it. It's a combination. Plus the right food and nutrition are vitally important. Everything Mel eats is organic, and she has flax seed oil, and salmon at least three a week, which help burn stomach fat. There is no magic bullet. You need to work like Mel has to get in great shape like her."

Her exercise regimen includes working out 6 days a week for a minimum of an hour each day, doing a combination of Brazilian martial arts and dance called Capoeira, traditional martial arts, yoga, water exercises, Joey's "marine boot camp" and lunges, and power walks in the Hollywood Hills. She eats six small meals a day of organic food including oatmeal, fruit, nuts, veggies, and grilled fish. She has also been doing dance practice preparing for her upcoming Dancing with the Stars appearance, for which she is said to be looking great on the dance floor.

Spice Girls To Release Diana Tribute Song
-= Rumor Warning =-

The Spice Girls are recording a song called "Lady", to be released as a double-A side on their reunion single "Woman". The song will be a tribute to Princess Diana and includes the lyrics: "Lady, you are an inspiration to us all, you made every woman stand so tall." There will also be a video for the song. A source says:

"They have always said how highly they thought of her and want to do something to pay their respects. Victoria in particular became the next big thing in the media after Diana and in some ways they feel guilty about that. Emma came up with the plan because she felt particularly guilty the girls were forced to turn down the chance to appear in the Concert for Diana earlier this summer due to her pregnancy. Geri was a huge fan and refers to Diana as the original Queen of Girl Power. She has been key in ensuring the single and video demonstrate that in a tasteful way."

More Girls Aloud Spice Fandom
Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud recently told The Sun (UK):

"We've all registered for tickets. We were the Spice Girls generation and I can't believe that I'm now in the same industry as them. I loved them so much when I was younger that I used to go to Spice Girl parties. My nan used to make my costumes. Geri Halliwell was my favourite because she had red hair like me."

She added that she hopes Girls Aloud fans can look up to her as she looked up to Geri:

"Maybe young girls will look at a bad picture of me sometimes in a magazine and feel they can relate to me. I'm normal, I'm just like everyone else."

Dear British Press, welcome to the truth.

Jamie King will be the Spice Girls' reunion tour director. Besides Madonna, he has also previously worked with Prince, Christina Aguilera on her Back to Basics tour, and Ricky Martin on his Black and White tour. Simon Fuller says:

"Jamie King was our first choice. He is one of the world's very best live show directors/producers & choreographers, having worked with all of the greats, including Madonna and Prince. He inspires great confidence in everyone around him. He is a terrific guy and the girls absolutely love him. Everyone has the same vision for this show, it will be a roller coaster of fun reflecting all the things that made the Spice Girls such a huge global Pop group."

Jamie himself says:

"Collaborating with the Spice Girls presents one of those exceptional opportunities to create a truly iconic live performance. As a group, their dynamic is provocative, compelling and undeniably sexy, which truly drives my creative inspiration. Their reintroduction to the world will, without question, be an unforgettable event."

Somebody managed to get into Victoria's yard, and hid in the bushes. Victoria's security team quickly noticed and gave chase, but the person ran off and escaped.

Adam Shankman, one of the top American Choreographers (featured on the show So You Think You Can Dance (US)), has been successfully recruited by Victoria to help the Spice Girls update their dance routines for their upcoming reunion tour. He has put a team together to teach the girls some new moves after he was told that he may not be teaching all the girls at the same time for the first few weeks. He and his crew will be coming along on the tour to help with the girls' dancing - Shankman was instructed to clear his schedule from October to January. A dance industry source says:

"Adam will be starting rehearsals in October in LA, but during the first month the girls have lots of other commitments with their own schedules. Emma won't be coming out until mid- October, because she has just given birth. Time is of the essence, so Adam is co-ordinating a team so they are all at the same stage when they meet."

Girls Aloud Squash Anti-Spice Rumors
The Daily Mail interviewed Cheryl Cole from British Pop Sensation Girls Aloud a few days ago, and buried in the interview was the question of if she thinks Girls Aloud will get back together in 2030. Cheryl responded:

"It just wouldn't be seemly. When we finish, we'll finish on top. And there'll be no comeback. We could hardly go out as Girls Aloud when we're old and wrinkly. We would have to call ourselves Old Girls Aloud, and that would never do."

Now a bunch of jackasses in the British press have for the past few days turned this into headlines such as "Girls Aloud Slam Spice Girls", in pathetic attempts to create a feud. Anyway, Cheryl became upset at the reports and delivered the following message on the official Girls Aloud website:

"Cheryl dropped us a line today to clarify some comments she recently made in an interview with Live, the Mail on Sunday magazine. Cheryl was discussing the future of Girls Aloud, and said she wouldn't want the band to reform further down the line if they split up. A few reports have since surfaced claiming that Cheryl was making a dig at the Spice Girls, who are reforming for a tour this autumn. Cheryl would like to make it very clear that she was in no way having a pop at the Spice Girls: in fact, she's a big fan of the Spices, and has registered on the website hoping to get tickets for their concert, along with some of the other girls."

Yeah I've been seeing this "Girls Aloud slam Spice Girls" bullshit in the news for the past few days, knowing it was because I also read the original interview. To the British fake-press: Get a life and a set of morals while you're at it, assholes - a degree in journalism might also help.
