In July of 2016, the Spice Girls celebrated the 20th anniversary of their single, Wannabe. The single was the group’s first, paving the way for them to become one of, if not, THE biggest girl groups of all time.
To celebrate the song’s anniversary, three of five group members – Mel B (Scary Spice), Geri Horner (Ginger Spice), and Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) – recorded a special video for fans expressing their gratitude and inviting them to a “special party.
Though Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) and Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice) both assured the public they had no plans to join the rest of the girls for the reunion, the trio rebranded as GEM was excited to hit the stage for fans once again. Between Geri’s pregnancy and Mel B’s rumored marital problems, reunion plans were put on hold.
According to a recent report on in Page Six, we now have official confirmation that the reunion is back in the works!
While this is exciting news for Spice Girls fans everywhere, the reunion comes at difficult time for Mel B. According to the report, Mel B’s soon-to-be-ex-husband, Stephanie Belafonte, has always had an unnerving presence for the group. Now that he is gone, GEM is ready to move forward. Ginger Spice confirms that though the group is “not re-forming immediately,” they definitely will be “in the near future.”
