Holy crap, they are actually going to do this.
It looks like the Spice Girls reunion has moved past the realm of pure hope and into reality. A press release today from the group’s management team, 19 Entertainment, reads: “Following weeks of speculation, the Spice Girls are set to make an official announcement to the world regarding future plans on Thursday, June 28. Details regarding the announcement will be released in the coming days.”
Earlier this week, a memo from the girls’ management team urging them to “not become pregnant — please!” leaked to a British tabloid, further fueling the rumors that there would be a reunion. The members of Spice have pursued solo careers since their last release as a group in 2000, and have been met with varying levels of success in the U.S. and abroad. None has been able to recapture the hype of the Spice Girls.
In related news, it’s an extra good day for Spice Girl Mel B., who yesterday received the test results proving that actor Eddie Murphy is the father of her two-month-old baby. After the two split last year, Murphy told reporters that “I don’t know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test.”
That girl is totally, like, the most badass two-year-old at the International Preschool in Prague.
It’s just that, you know, most two-year-olds like to wear shirts with kittens on them. Or puppies. Or a rainbow. Or Barney. Or something they can recognize. I really don’t think that Zahara’s in a position yet to appreciate the 1970s-British-heavy-metal coolness of her t-shirt. What do you think Brad tells her when she asks about what’s on her shirt?
And she is sooo adorable. Seriously, does Angelina have, like, a software program to help determine exactly how adorable a baby will be when she becomes a toddler? Or does spending that much time around the most beautiful couple in the world just make anyone hot?
Also, where’s Maddox in all this? Why doesn’t he have to go to school?
Despite the persistent rumors that their marriage is in trouble, Courteney Cox and David Arquette look happy as ever as they leave an event at Kitson in WeHo last night. I don’t know why the tabloids keep trying to break these two up. I think they’re the real thing.
Remember this chick? She was Al Lambert, the little tomboy girl, on Step by Step. She’s worked steadily in television guest roles since, but not in anything you’d remember. She was in Georgia Rule, which no one saw, and she’ll be in Paris Hilton’s upcoming The Hottie and the Nottie, which, God willing, no one will see. Anyway, she popped up at the Colette Jewelry party in L.A. on Thursday night, and she made damn sure the cameras caught her side boob. Because Paris Hilton is in jail and anyone can be famous until June 25.
Also there: Salma Hayek, who doesn’t seem to be too concerned about gaining a ridiculous amount of pregnancy weight, and I’d give her shit for that, but you know what? Good for her. And Brooke Burke, who is adorable.

Ah, Tokyo. Where the bars close when you stop buying drinks, there’s a one-to-one ratio between humans and vending machines, and Brad Pitt, movie star extraordinaire, shows up in a huge Tag Heuer ad. Whaddya figure they paid him for this?
PerezWatch just got interesting. After all the drama and all the lawsuits between Perez and X17, it seems as though actual changes are beginning to occur.
Perez’s longtime host, Crucial Paradigm, took the site offline yesterday after numerous threats from X17′s legal team. The site was dark for a few hours, and it’s back up now, hosted by Blogads. (Really? Um, does Blogads host anyone else? Because, like, they barely host the Blogads service. If you’ve never had to try to deal with that user interface, consider yourself lucky.) The current version of Perez’s site doesn’t include his archives or allow for comments. That last part is really too bad. Now there’s no place for the world’s intelligentsia to weigh in ever so eloquently on the trials and tribulations of the very famous.
But X17′s lawyers are already hounding Blogads about it and threatening legal action. “It’s a precedent that’s huge,” they say “When we were talking to Crucial Paradigm they were saying they were not responsible, dragging their feet. We had to threaten them and show them they were liable. His new host is Blogads, and we’re contacting them already.”
I have to admit, I’m a regular Perez reader (but you guys knew that), and I’m fascinated to see how this case plays out, and the impact it has on the rest of us.
Remember Club Paris? That super hot club in Jacksonville, Florida that was never anywhere close to actually being super hot, for reasons not unrelated to the fact that it’s in Jacksonville, Florida? Well it changed its name. To Dior. Whatever. [Celebrity Smack]

Not to be a huge bitch, but does anyone else find it interesting that Kelly Clarkson’s all like, “One time, I was bulimic for like five minutes,” right as her album and career are tanking? [IBBB]
Hey, for anyone looking to update the Gawker Stalker map, Jimmy Kimmel’s in the hospital. [SOW]
Mandy Moore’s new album may as well be titled Zach Braff Sucks. [Cele|bitchy]
Look, folks, Justin Timberlake’s banging Jessica Biel, so he’ll wear whatever damn pair of shorts he wants, no matter how ridiculous they may look. [A Socialite's Life]
