It was Geri’s big day on Friday, but where were her former bandmates?
Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell finally said ‘I Do’ yesterday, in a lavish ceremony at the historic Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire. The pop star married Formula One team boss Christian Horner in front of a host of famous faces and at the recepition she even indulged in a solo rendition of Spice Girls hit ‘Wannabe’. But why was Emma Bunton the only ex-Spice Girl in attendance?

Sporty Spice Mel C failed to make Geri’s big day thanks to her job on the other side of the world. The singer was unable to make it back it back in time for the ceremony after appearing as a judge on 'Asia's Got Talent' which aired it’s finale espied on May 14th.
Would Eva Longoria make the perfect fifth Spice Girl?
The Spice Girls are back together! Ok, that was misleading. By “are” I mean “were” and by “together” I mean “in the same room, taking pictures for a couple of hours”. Also, there were only four of them. But other than that...
Posh, Sporty, Baby and Ginger reunited at David Beckham’s glamorous birthday party on Saturday, in Marrakech, Morocco. It was the presence of Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm and Emma Bunton that really spiced up the party, though.
Four songs recorded in 2000 emerged on SoundCloud on Wednesday, before being removed less than 24 hours later.
The internet briefly went into meltdown on Wednesday as four previously unreleased Spice Girls songs appeared online, only to be taken down early on Thursday morning.
The songs are believed to have been recorded at the same time as their third and final studio album Forever, which was released in 2000. Their titles are ‘A Day In Your Life’, ‘Pain Proof’, ‘If It’s Lovin’ Your On Mind’ and ‘Right Back At Ya’. The last of these is an alternative version of the one that actually appeared on Forever.

We reported earlier this week how Emma Bunton had hired a real-life pet detective to help find her missing dog Phoebe, who ran off while on its daily walk on Monken Hadley Common between Barnet and Cockfosters. Unfortunately the former Spice Girls singer has received bad news, with the six-year-old Labrador being found dead today (February 6, 2013), reports the Evening Standard.
Two days after the dog disappeared in London, Bunton tweeted, "Our precious Phoebe has been found and it's terrible news, we are devastated." The singer instantly received floods of messages from well-wishers on Twitter, "Oh no Emma, I'm so sorry! I've been praying for her safe return. Such sad news. Thoughts to you & your family," said one. Bunton had made an appeal for Phoebe's safe return on Tuesday, saying, "I'm desperate and so upset and worried sick. She's a big softie and I know she will be so scared. My two gorgeous dogs were on a walk yesterday and Phoebe disappeared. We were out there for hours until late last night looking for her and she still hasn't come back." Band-mate Mel C also posted an appeal on her own Twitter followers, offering reassurance that the dog would be found and returned.
A spokesman said, "We were out there for hours until late last night looking for her and she still hasn't come back. Regretfully it was very sad news. Our thoughts are with Emma, Jade and the family." Emma's partner Jade Jones paid tribute to the couple's dog via his Twitter page after hearing the sad news on Wednesday, saying, "Thank you everyone for your amazing support. Our precious Phoebe has been found and its terrible news. Devastated.. Love you Phoebe always."

Some people just never change, and Victoria Beckham is one of them. At least thats what she claims, as she believes that she will always be 'Posh Spice.'
Despite the ongoing rumours circulating that say that Mrs David Beckham is doing her best to keep her distance from the girls - Mel C, Geri Halliwell, Mel B and Emma Bunton - according to a newly released snippet from an upcoming documentary about the girls, she is doing quite the opposite.
In the forthcoming documentary, Victoria reveals: "I was called Posh because I liked the nice restaurants, and the nice clothes, and that was my character. I didn't smile, even in those days. There was this very strong image. And I am very much that person, even now. I get ready to go out sometimes and I catch myself in the mirror and I'm like, 'Oh my God, I've turned into that person'."

The Spice Girls' renaissance - which began with a performance at the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony - has continued with the musical, Viva Forever! Of course, no musical premiere is complete without an after party, but did four of The Spice Girls give Posh Spice the cold shoulder?
"Victoria sat on her own table away from the rest of the girls. They didn't speak the whole time she was there," a source told Metro. "She came out of the loo singing Spice Girls songs to Romeo who went in after her,' said another source, "She was giggling with her friends while waiting for him to finish," they continued. "When the DJ played some Spice Girls hits, Posh was nowhere to be seen. Geri, Emma, Mel B and Mel C all got up to dance and tried to remember the moves to Spice Up Your Life, they didn't seem to care, or notice, Victoria was missing."
Mrs Beckham was widely criticised for her role in The Spice girls. People said she couldn't sing, dance or act, but that's really an accusation you could level at most modern pop starts, let alone the rest of the band; a band, which, according to Ginger Spice, isn't done yet. Geri told Heat magazine: "This is a great excuse for us all to have a party tonight! The musical was incredible, we all got really emotional watching it. I just want to see it again now. It was brilliant, it was emotional, funny, exciting, empowering... it was girl power!," adding, "we're going to be around for a long time. You haven't seen the last of us."
The world premier of The Spice Girls musical VIVA Forever took place in London last night, but the group were upstaged as the Beckham family attended in full - minus youngest Harper - to take the glare of the snappers' bulbs away from the remaining members of the Fab Five. Indeed, you'd be hard pressed to find a picture of Victoria Beckham with her old group mates Melanie Chisolm, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Melanie Brown, the pop star-cum-fashion entrepreneur sticking largely with her husband and sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
After the great success of their brief reunion for the Olympics opening ceremony, the Spice Girls have another great feat to add to the CV- they have been parodied in a hardcore porn film.
The movie has been made by 'Juicy Entertainment', a company that seems to specialise in parodies, having also spoofed the adventurously named Tomb Raider XXX, Saturday Night Fever XXX and Zorro XXX. Their Spice Girls movie is titled OMG... It's The Spice Girls Parody, and includes romps with bods of the business, such as music execs, bodyguards, and each other, reports Gigwise.
The director hired look-a-likes to fulfill the role, Danii Jensen played Ginger Spice, Allie Haze was Posh Spice, Baby Spice was played by Jessie Rogers, Misty Stone took on the task of Scary Spice while Sporty Spice was played by Dani Daniels. A spokesperson for the film said "It's just a bit of cheeky fun. We hope the Spice Girls will see the funny side." They have even offered to send copies of the film, which will be released next month, to the real Spice Girls. However, many people are predicting that the company will have a lawsuit on their hands.
