We don’t want to get our hopes up, but…
It sounds like three-fifths of the Spice Girls AKA GEM are back on!
It appears now that Mel’s abusive husband Stephen Belafonte is out of the picture, the reunion doesn’t have anymore obstacles in the way.
“We’re not re-forming immediately, but in the near future.”
Meanwhile, regarding Stephen, a source said:
“Stephen was always an unnerving presence. Now he’s out of the way, fun will return.”
Unnerving is certainly one word for that asshole!
As for the other two members of the group, Mel C and Victoria Beckham, things don’t sound quite that promising. Mel C gave a tentative “maybe” during an interview back in January, and Victoria has said many times that she’s just not interested.
In November of last year, GEM’s reunion single, Song For Her, was leaked and met with mixed reviews. And then there was all that drama with Posh not wanting the girls to sing their iconic songs during the reunion, which she chose not to be a part of.
It’s been such a bumpy road!
We wish GEM the best for real! (And we’ll keep a 5 out of 5 Spice Girls reunion on our wishlist, too!)
