With rumpus rumblings regards Posh’s non-singing fee, “tarty costumes” and an expensive support act not “remotely in tune” with them or their “older” fan base as the girl power juggernaut prepares for another “final tour”, 12 years after the last one (dailymail.co.uk):
Spice Girl Mel B confesses she had SEX with Geri: ‘It just happened’ (dailystar.co.uk).
The pair enjoyed the steamy session when they were at the height of their fame.
It was kept secret for more than two decades but Mel, 43, has now gone public—and admitted it was just about sex.
Telling likeable broadcasting provocateur Piers Morgan in a “candid” recorded interview for his ITV chat show Life Stories set to be aired in the summer that:
“We were best friends. It just happened. It wasn’t a thing. It just happened.
“We just giggled at it and that was it. It just happens one time and then you talk about it and it does not really happen again.”
Cheekily adding “she had great boobs” and that “this is a bombshell. A Spice Girls bombshell”, and to further pimp it suggesting that “all of the Spice Girls became so close in the 90s that they regularly enjoyed snogs”. The only suprise being that Lily Allen has yet to Tweet that she was tonguing Mel B’s bum sometime during her lost and lonely period too. Perhaps for a future book extract serialisation (Latest Picks Sept. 2018).
.:: Update ::.
And with it a case of “Piers pushed on” seemingly smelling potential fallout blood in the water while “Mel tried to swerve the question, looking to bandmate Mel C in the audience for help” if not exactly doing any more than breaststroke to avoid shark:
“She’s going to hate me for this because she’s all posh in her country house and her husband. But it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it,’ 43-year-old Mel continued.
His experience as disgraced editor of the Daily Mirror and as winner of U.S. celebrity version of The Apprentice “reality” TV truly evident talking about it on Good Morning Britain:
Now Piers has admitted “it’s all kicking off” as he added today: “Geri is now briefing the ‘it’s never happened’. She’s slightly panicking about what Mr Geri [husband Christian Horner] thinks.”
And while Piers seems to have successfully stirred feud brewing pot with Geri reportedly “furious with Mel”, it seems their “it just happened” scissoring salacity was foretold:
During the [unearthed interview with MTV], Ginger Spice was asked who she would like to sh*g or marry in the group.
She responded: “I probably want to marry Emma and sh*g Mel B. She’s the top…are you allowed to say sh*g on MTV?”
But also seemingly suggesting Posh’s pins and Sporty’s abs and dynamism with a strap-on making her damp:
Asked what parts of her bandmates she would like to have for herself, Geri said she would like Victoria’s legs and Mel C’s “physicality”, referring to her love of fitness.
Speaking to US DJ Howard Stern in a 1990s interview, the singer, 46, decided not to name Mel, 43, simply saying her romp was with a “famous woman.”
“I had lesbian sex once, I realised quickly I was not a lesbian,” she said.
Seemingly not minding Mel’s baps but not so keen on Scary Spiced minge:
“I don’t mind boobs but the other bit is not my cup of tea, I didn’t like the lesbian thing. It is part of experimenting. I was drunk at the time.”

And non-plussed by Scary Spiced minge or not somewhat longer than a night may have been spent not minding sucking each other’s teats:
One [source who may have just turned up at same bar as Mail journo] recalls: “It was in the very early days of the Spice Girls and their relationship lasted far longer than one night—it was at least 12 months.”
Although it was apparently news to Sporty Mel C, who was in the audience and said: “This is all new to me.” But then again a few years back she claimed she was bullied during her time in the Spice Girls (dailymail.co.uk, Nov. 2016) so perhaps she was not in the loop despite Mel B’s admission on MTV of having the hots for her Sporty’s abs and dynamism with a strap-on. And after it was revealed Mel B describes Victoria Beckham as a “bit of a b****” in same interview (standard.co.uk), she seemingly is as eager to stir pot as Piers:
In the days following Mel’s interview, she is said to have called Geri in solidarity to tell her how appalled she was that details of her personal life had been shared so publicly.
With seemingly some ill feeling on Geri’s part at least in that the reunion was in part to help Mel B financially following her expensive divorce (see related stories):
“The view is that the others didn’t need to do the tour,” says the source. “Now Geri wonders why she bothered. Especially, she feels, because she has her young son Monty to look after.”

And finally having her say:
‘It’s been very disappointing… it’s simply not true’: Geri Horner finally breaks her silence on Mel B’s ‘hurtful’ lesbian romp claims (but insists she’s looking forward to Spice Girls tour!) (dailymail.co.uk).
Responding to claims that the fling lasted for a whole year, Geri, 46, has said that she feels “hurt” by rumours about the relationship and wants to move on.
Saying it has been hurtful for her family and the mother of four seemingly having saved her say for the maternal sympathy vote:
An official comment reads: “It has been very disappointing to read about all these rumours again, especially on Mother’s Day of all days.”
But careful to reiterate her love for all her former bandmates and say how much she is still looking forward to the tour.

And of the reunion Spice World tour’s first night in Dublin:
They had 24 outfits and started with the Spice Girls’ most iconic looks reimagined Baby wore a shimmering pink mini dress, Scary donned a glittering animal-print jumpsuit, Sporty had a shining Olympian outfit and Geri, who had already gone back to her Ginger roots earlier this week thrilled fans in a sparkling Union Jack gown complete with tiara in a nod to her infamous 1997 Brit Awards dress.
And with no bad feelings on display, although the red top keen for it all to get a re-mention:
And it all eyes were on former lovers Mel B and Geri, who showed there was no hard feelings as they shared a moment holding hands and exchanging looks during Let Love Lead The Way.
And the pair engaging in “playful banter throughout the show” and with Geri letting all into a secret about Scary Spice that had nothing to do with whether that Scary Spiced minge was shaved down there back then or not:
“She isn’t scary. She’s soft. She’s cuddly.”

And if you feel everything to be heard hasn’t been heard you can catch the “explosive” interview which started the whole thing airing on ITV tonight, regrettably keeping canny Piers Morgan relevant too:
The show hit the headlines back in March, after Morgan filmed an interview with Spice Girls star Mel B (real name Melanie Brown) in which she claimed that she had slept with bandmate Geri Horner (nee Halliwell) during the group’s 90s heyday.
Now, the explosive episode is set to air on ITV, coinciding with the start of the girl band’s reunion tour.

And with tour underway with Mel B reportedly demanding tequila shots for the entire Spice World family and Mel C bathing in ice in a Spice World hoodie and bikini bottoms at wild after-parties (dailystar.co.uk), Pier’s Life Stories did share more Mel B mischief:
Mel B used to answer room service NAKED during Spice Girl heyday (dailystar.co.uk).
When asked what she used to do when she stayed in a hotel, Mel B discussed how she would walk, covered in a towel, into the room where the hotel’s room service attendant would be dropping off her food.
While the other band members were either dressed in a t-shirt or a skimpy bra and pant set, the mum-of-three decided to strip down to her birthday suit by “accidentally” dropping her bath robe.
Playfully miming out the scene and saying “I found it funny“ turning to the room service staff saying “Let me sign that” presumably while chap came in his pants with Piers unable to “contain his glee as he erupted into a fit of giggles” and likely messing his own pants too.
Mel B’s fondness for exhibitionism is well known, mooning her neighbors when dared by Mel C (Pick of the Week 23rd Apr. 2013) and the business of having to ban her ex husband Stephen Belafonte from distributing their sex tapes during their acrimonious divorce (Blog 9th Apr. 2017).
