Geri Halliwell, AKA Ginger Spice, AKA the best Spice Girl, got married to Formula1 racing team boss Christian Horner in England Friday (yesterday). Geri was obviously the best Spice Girl out of all of them for many reasons, the biggest one maybe being that she wore the iconic Union Jack dress. I dressed up as her for Halloween in high school and also again a few years ago, wearing a different Union Jack dress each time.
OH AND SPEAKING OF GINGER SPICE DRESSES, check out her STUNNING Phillipa Lepley wedding gown!
Don’t you just love it?? But the thing we all care about is, which of the Spice Girls bothered to show up? Did you guess Posh? If so you’re…ABSOLUTELY INCORRECT. Of COURSE Victoria Beckham didn’t show up. Girl considers herself way too much of a superstar to show up to some C-lister’s wedding, as endearing as this C-lister is. Oh but don’t worry, she sent out a tweet. Yeah:
Yo, if you’re ~so sad~~ you couldn’t be there, why aren’t you there? Classic Posh. But guess who else didn’t show? Melanie Brown, AKA Scary Spice. What the hell is Mel B doing that’s so damn important? I mean, really. It’s Mel B. Come on.
HOWEVER not only did Emma Bunton, AKA Baby Spice, show up, but according to Huffington Post, her two sons accompanied Geri down the aisle! That warms my cold, cynical heart.
Anyway, this gown is definitely one of my fave celeb wedding gowns. What do you guys think?
Mel B was asked – for some odd reason – if she’s “attracted” to her Spice Girls bandmates on the Howard Stern Show (oh wait, I see why now!), Mel actually said yes and revealed that she’d made out with every last one of them… to test out her tongue ring. Surprise! She also apparently SLEPT with a few of them! :-o
Here’s what she said when questioned if she ever fancied any of them (via DS):
“Always. They’re my homies. I kissed all of them, yes. I got my tongue pierced and I wanted to try out my tongue piercing and so I kissed them all.”
When asked if she had ever got into bed with any of the girls, she replied: “Back in the day I had fun.”
Okay, so let’s dissect this one. Out of the four other girls in the band, I think Mel B and Geri definitely had a fling because Geri just seems like she’d like a bit of lady on the side. Victoria is way too uptight to even consider going lesbo even once, so I don’t think that happened. Mel C has been in the closet for decades, so I can definitely see that having happened. Emma? I’m not sure, actually. Hmm… maybe if they were drunk?
Bikini season is upon us. ‘Tis the time of year where we get to see “BEST AND WORST BIKINI BODS OF 2013″ splashed all over celeb magazines, along with hints of “HERE ARE 100 PEOPLE HOTTER THAN YOU ARE, F-CK YOU!” So let’s get it over with and take the wind out of our sails with this post of celebrities in bikinis and get to the inevitable who looks fat and who doesn’t and let’s cry into our pizza. Our delicious f-cking pizza. I think all these ladies look great, although I doubt some of their bikini choices, simply because some of these are ugly.
The Spice Girls musical, Viva Forever, may be closing on the West End after less than a year, but that doesn’t mean it’s terrible! Well, not in Geri Halliwell‘s eyes, anyway. She went to see it again earlier this week and insists that it’s actually “good entertainment”.
It’s 11pm and I’ve just come back from the West End theatre show Viva Forever! – To say goodbye.
Over 4 years ago it started with a conversation in a Kitchen; Laughing… Joking… full of promise, dreams & optimism.
We managed to get one of the most successful Theatre producers to do our show! A great writer, our Spice music… I felt confidant – almost cocky it was going to be a huge success.
Opening night – In my Cinderella prom dress with my fellow Spice Girls, so proud of us having a West End show!
It didn’t work – 6 months later, it’s closing.
What went wrong?
Was I biased? Blinded because it was a show with our music?
Was it the lighting? The set? The choreography? The press? The story?
It had a bumpy start but the cast and director worked really hard, made great changes, and I can hand on heart tell it’s not shit! – It’s good entertainment!
She goes on and on about the project and how much it means to her, which is great and all, but it doesn’t change how poorly executed it was. It’s true, on the surface Viva Forever should have flourished. Jennifer Saunders co-wrote it, for Christ’s sake. Plus, who doesn’t love Spice Girls songs, even on just a nostalgia level? I mean, come on!
Ah, well, I guess Geri will have to go back to giving us all tube riding skills and doing weird dares with her former bandmates.
Viva Forever, a musical based on the works of the Spice Girls in London’s West End, was cancelled. Judging by that photo it looks like it was basically just a group of women dressed as Spice Girls singing Spice Girls songs, and it probably was, but now I’LL NEVER KNOW. It opened only last December. Mamma Mia it is not.
Emma Bunton/Baby Spice tweeted (via EOnline), “I am totally gutted that our wonderful show @vivaforever is coming to an end. Thank you to all our amazing fans for your constant support!”
Geri Halliwell/Ginger managed to put her truth or dare game with Mel B/Scary on hold to tweet “We love u all @vivaforever @emmabunton @MelanieCmusic @OfficialMelB @victoriabeckham #what a shocka , gutted .x”
Mel C/Sporty tweeted “Absolutely devastated our wonderful show is closing. Thank you to our brilliant cast and everybody who made the show so incredible.” that Mel B retweeted.
All this tweeting makes me realize even more that journalists can quite easily become obsolete. No one releases real statements anymore. Unless it’s an “I was drunk and I’m sorry” statement that needs more than 140 characters.
In conclusion, slam your body down a-zig-ah-zag-ah. (What’s YOUR favorite Spice song?)
You all know Geri Halliwell is one of my favourite people on Twitter, and that’s mostly due to her incredible inability to filter her thoughts and now also because we get to see the weird dare-a-thon she and fellow Spice GirlsMel C and Mel B seem to have going on right now.
It all started a few weeks back when Mel C apparently dared Mel B to go outside and moon her neighbours, which of course she did:
Then Mel B dared Geri to go into a pub and start singing ‘Say You’ll Be There’ before walking out again. Well, that sounds like fun – and it was! Geri is a good sport, so she walked ’round her local and went for it. It was mostly full of old men who didn’t know who she was and didn’t care, which makes it all the more genius:
This must mean Mel C’s up next. God, I feel like it’s 1996 all over again. Except an alternate universe where I care more about the Spice Girls than I ever did in the real 1996. I’m into it!
