Former Spice Girls star Mel B has firmly denied any suggestion that Posh, Ginger, Baby, Sporty and Scary Spice don't get on as friends anymore.
The singer insisted that she is 'always up for a Spice Girls reunion' and gushed to the Daily Star, 'We are friends. Even though I call them my bitches, I love them.' In fact, it seems like the loud-mouthed Northern beauty is seriously missing being part of the biggest girl band of the '90s with their nine number one singles (out of eleven) and stereotyped personas. 'I have been to see the workshop for the theatre show and it did make me cry', she confessed in regards to the upcoming stage musical 'Viva Forever' written by comedienne Jennifer Saunders and featuring the quintet's biggest hits. 'Maybe it's me getting older', she joked.
Rumours of tension amongst the girls were recently floating around suggesting that Victoria Beckham's reluctance to reunite for the London Olympics closing ceremony was angering fellow Spice Girls Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell. However, any suggestion that Posh didn't fancy the idea has since been rejected by the stars. Mel B, who lives in the States, has also been accused of having a 'ridiculous' demanding attitude by sources in the Daily Star. 'She wants her friends and family flown from all over to see the gig and wants them to have backstage access', they said. 'And her rider, which includes a demand for a personal stylist to be flown wherever she goes.'
