Cheryl Cole has taken a stab at the Spice Girls reuniting for a world tour, insisting Girls Aloud would never reform after they eventually split. “It just wouldn’t be seemly. When we finish, we’ll finish on top. And there’ll be no comeback,” Cole said, according to The Sun. “We could hardly go out as Girls Aloud when we’re old and wrinkly. We would have to call ourselves Old Girls Aloud – and that would never do.” Read more.
The Spice Girls posted the following message on their official web site:
Spice Up Your City!!
WOW! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! We are so excited about the fantastic response that we have had from everybody registering to come and see us on tour. It means so much that people want to see the 5 of us together again on stage.
Now for some really cool news! We’ve had loads of messages from people all over the World asking why we weren’t performing in their Country.

The City with the most votes will become “SPICE CITY” and we’ll definitely come and play there as part of our tour. It really is up to you to decide which City becomes “SPICE CITY” so get voting!

News of the World reports that Victoria Beckham takes a shot at her Spice Girls bandmate Melanie Brown’s ex Eddie Murphy on her NBC special ‘Victoria Beckham: Coming To America’. Asked who’s her least favorite celeb she replies instantly: “Eddie Murphy.” Then Posh quips: “Beverly Hills c**k.” Asked if she would spit in the actor’s food, Posh replied: “I’d spit in his food definitely.” The singer/designer added, “I’d chop his dick off too.” Murphy had contested paternity of Mel’s baby daughter Angel Iris until DNA tests proved he was the father.
The Sun’s Victoria Newton is dishing dirt on Melanie Brown and how the Spice Girls star has had several former lovers claim she was a sex addict. “Mel was at it all the time. She was always talking loudly to everyone about her sex life,” a source revealed.
Newton also hears that during the girl group’s heyday, she wasn’t the hardest of workers. “She never really took anything seriously,” a tipster said. “Sometimes the other girls used to get pissed off because she was messing around and not paying attention in rehearsals. She just wanted a good time – she was the real fun one out of the lot of them.”
