The game of “will they or won’t they” has been going on for too long, but now the Spice Girls will reportedly revive their long-awaited reunion, Page Six reports.
Almost a full year has passed since Geri Horner (Ginger), Emma Bunton (Baby) and Mel B (Scary) released a video saying we’d be invited to a party that would celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Wannabe.” This led to the announcement of a truncated Spice Girls reunion tour, featuring Scary, Baby and Ginger, but missing two integral members, Melanie C (Sporty) and Victoria Beckham (Posh).
The group’s reunion never came to fruition after Horner announced she was pregnant with her second child. And even after the birth in January, there was no update on when to expect our Spice Girls’ triumphant comeback. Now, Horner has confirmed they’re “not re-forming immediately,” but in the near future.”
The driving force behind the renewed interest in reuniting comes from Mel B’s recent split with husband, Stephen Belafonte. An unnamed source had told Page Six, “Stephen was always an unnerving presence. Now he’s out of the way, fun will return.”
The world, in its current state, is undoubtedly primed for some serious girl power. Hopefully this time the group will actually return and, if there’s any real Goddess up there, maybe she’ll bring back all five women to spice up our lives.
