    Default The Spice Girls need to make some more money

    Spice Girls set to reunite next year as judges in Chinese talent show to perk up Posh's fortunes

    The Spice Girls are set for a money-spinning reunion next spring after agreeing to use Girl Power to boost their dwindling spending power.
    Victoria ‘Posh Spice’ Beckham, whose eponymous fashion empire saw its annual losses double to £8.5 million last week, has always refused to sing again. But a source close to the chart-topping band revealed a compromise – she and the other four members will judge a Chinese reality show to ‘find the next global pop star’.
    The key to the reunion is music svengali and Pop Idol creator Simon Fuller, who is credited with the phenomenal commercial success of the Spice Girls and ‘Brand Beckham’.

    At the height of ‘Spice Mania’ in the late 1990s, there was a hit movie, Spice World, as well as dolls, stationery, trainers and even lollipops as part of a huge promotional push that saw them become the most merchandised group in history – and the most lucrative since The Beatles. The source said: ‘Victoria vowed she would never sing with the girls again, and she won’t.
    ‘But now they’ve found a way round that. They will go to China in the spring and do the television show. In terms of money, they’re not doing it for pennies

    ‘The plan is that lots of endorsements and other big-money deals will snowball from this.
    ‘Simon Fuller sees a lot of potential profit in their merchandise, as well as their back catalogue. We’re talking millions here.’
    The band members have enjoyed mixed financial fortunes recently. As well as Victoria’s losses, Mel B has just emerged from an expensive divorce, while Geri Halliwell’s solo company, Wonderful Productions, has seen its profits collapse from £179,258 in 2014 to just £4,568 last year.

    I'm guessing Mel B needs money for sure.

    Mel C looks like Kate Middleton in the top picture.

    She does and she doesn't because David is subbing her fashion fail. They have a lot of hangers on though - kids, parents, staff, properties, PR.

    Victoria looked very beautiful in the 2nd pic. In the 1st pick that does not look like Sporty spice at all. That is some bad ps. I don't understand how people think that throwing some bolt ons on a skinny body with no curves equals sexy.

    I think Sporty stopped eating and got some new teef which is not sexy either!

    I wasn't a fan of the Spice Girls, but Ginger was my favorite. She looked better with the extra weight on her before she went all anorexic looking for her solo album.

    Even with all the staff and hangers on, £8 million is chump change to Brand Beckham, although it wouldn't surprise me at all if this was 'deliberate losses' and propping up as part of a perfectly legal but immensely complicated tax write off plan.

    Pointless bit of boring gossip about Mel C. She grew up just a couple of miles away from where I am and I know someone who was friendly with her family and couldn't say anything bad about her, even after the Spice Girls exploded onto the scene. Seems she's a pretty nice person.
