Former SPICE GIRL MELANIE BROWN has snubbed ex-bandmates Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell from her planned New Year's Eve (31DEC04) party.

Brown, 29, hasn't invited Beckham and Halliwell to see in 2005 at her $1.6 million (GBP900,000) Los Angeles pad, despite asking former colleagues EMMA BUNTON and MELANIE CHISHOLM along.

A source says, "She originally wanted to host the party to see in the New Year with her nearest and dearest. She has a hunch that 2005 will be a fantastic time for her.

"But as far as showbiz pals go, there are only Emma and Mel C who are on the list.

"Mel B has moved on since the days of the Spice Girls."
