According to BANG Showbiz, Melanie Chisholm says she’d be part of another Spice Girls reunion if they were asked to play at the 2012 London Olympics, rejoining her bandmates Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton and Geri Haliwell for the games. “We’ve never actually been approached about the Olympics and it’s just rumors at the moment unfortunately but I’d jump at it if we were asked,” Mel C said. “I’m very excited about the Olympics being here in London. And it’d get me in wouldn’t it because I’ve got no tickets.”
Melanie Chisholm: Spice Girls Musical “Absolutely Happening”
March 22, 2010 – Melanie Chisholm spoke with ITN at the Olivier Awards about her excitement for the Spice Girls Musical, but admitted they are still looking for writers. “It’s happening, it’s absolutely happening,” Mel said of the project. “We’re working with Judy Craymer, who’s very famous for her successes with ‘Mamma Mia’, the stage production and the movie. So we thought she was a great person to help us get our dreams up on the West End stage.”
The singer added, “We’re currently looking for writers for the piece, and we really wanna be involved in as much as we want people to know us and experience the chemistry between us girls. We want to give lots of anecdotes. So even though we want it to be a fictional story, we want lots of the Spice Girls essence to go through there.” Watch the remarks via YouTube below.

At last you get to see my producer Poppy!…I took her to see Take That at Wembley after the show on Friday.

The Daily Star reports Melanie Chisholm has enlisted former Spice Girls bandmate Victoria Beckham to help plan her wedding to her partner of six years, Thomas Starr. Posh has since contacted Roberto Cavalli about the wedding dress. “Mel and Victoria have become very close since the Spice Girls reunited last year,” a source told the British tabloid. “And she knows that Victoria has the contacts and the ideas to make her big day extra special.”
Meanwhile, Mel C’s other bandmates have felt a bit left out. “Mel doesn’t feel close enough to the band to ask them to be bridesmaids or maids of honor,” the insider added. “So she and Victoria have decided all the girls should be invited as guests, rather than giving them special roles.”
Former Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@melaniecmusic) on Thursday (August 21), revealing she and her construction manager boyfriend Tom Starr are expecting their first child. Melanie C writes:
Some Happy News!
Well, I can now announce that Tom and I are expecting a baby and we are very happy.
As I’m sure you’ll understand we needed time to wait for results and tell our families. Thank you for all your kindness, good wishes and support (even if it was based on speculation!).
You all know how much I value my privacy so I’m sure I can rely on you to respect that, particularly at this time.
I will be taking it easy but am also excited to start writing for the fifth album. I’ll need some time off to be a mum but, before you know it, we’ll be back.
Also check back on the site over the next week or so – Uncles Paul, Greg, Nick, Scott, Vinnie (and me) are planning a UK gig somewhere ‘up north’ for a great cause (rocking out is not easy at the moment so it’ll be a full band acoustic gig).
Love Melanie xx
Former Spice Girl, Melanie Chisholm visited the Canadian talk show ‘The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos’ to talk about her blossoming solo career. Mel said the Spice Girls “was almost like this fairytale existence” and talked about how she was so nervous for her first solo gig, having no regrets about the reunion, how money wasn’t the deciding factor to return to the girl group, her mother still being in a band, her record label wanting to market her as the British Pink before she went independent, and the status of major labels. Watch the interview via YouTube below.
AOL Music Canada caught up with Melanie Chisholm for a Q&A, where she discussed the Spice Girls reunion. “When we finally decided, and we wanted to see what people’s feelings were about us getting back together and doing some shows, the reaction was incredible,” Mel C said. “We’d originally decided to tour for two months, but the demand was so great, especially at home in England, and in Canada and America, that it’s taken us really ’til the end of this month, and that was our limit because everybody has other commitments. We could keep going. We really could, so it’s been crazy. We’re all really grateful for the support we’ve received.” The full story at music.aol.ca has since been removed.
