There may be bad blood brewing in Spice World! When Mel B mentioned Victoria Beckham in a new interview, she said something not-so-nice about her former Spice Girls bandmate. Is Mel upset with Victoria for not wanting to join the group’s reunion?
Mel B, a.k.a Scary Spice, has been eager to get her fellow Spice Girls together for their 20th anniversary this year, but Victoria Beckham, 41, doesn’t seem to be too interested — and Mel, 40, might have just declared that she’s not happy with V! After talking about the pending Spice Girls reunion on the Allegedly with Theo Von and Matthew Cole Weiss podcast, Mel referred to Victoria (Posh Spice) as a “bit of a b***h.” Yikes!
Mel discussed just about everything Spice Girls on the podcast, sparking a question about Victoria and her post-Spice Girls life with hubby David Beckham. “She worked hard for it. She deserves that lifestyle,” Mel said. “She’s very down to Earth. She’s just a little bit of a b***h to others, but she has a good sense of humor.”
Ohhh, so Mel B wasn’t dissing her former bandmate after all! The b-word came up in reference to Posh’s personality, not the Spice Girls reunion. She probably didn’t need to mention the fact that Victoria has a slightly b***hy side…but hey, can’t we all sometimes?
It has been reported that Posh is the missing link in the 20th anniversary reunion tour, though, so it isn’t totally far-fetched to think that Mel called Victoria a “b***h” while talking about it. In fact, she called all of her bandmates b***hes!
“We are in talks with each other closely — but until something’s official, there’s no point saying anything. Until there are tour dates to announce,” she said. “I do feel like it’s getting closer and closer. I’ve been trying to get those b***hes together for years!”
Oh, Mel — it sounds like she means no harm with the b-word in any context. Scary Spice clearly has no problem telling it like it is, so maybe she will be able to convince Posh to join the Spice Girls reunion before the 20th anniversary has passed at the end of the year. Mel should probably stay away from calling her a “b***h” to Victoria’s face, though!
What do you think of Mel’s comment about Victoria, HollywoodLifers? Do you think she’ll be able to get Victoria on board for the anniversary tour?
