Melanie C: Scarlet's First Photo Op

Melanie has recently released the first photo of her and her new baby girl Scarlet via her official website.

The site reads:

Melanie & Scarlet have had their first photo shoot! Melanie is happy for a picture to be released as she knows her fans are eager to see a picture of Scarlet. She also hopes that any media interest will be satisfied and that her privacy will continue to be respected.

Isn't that the cutest picture you've ever seen? I think so.


Mel B: Closer Columnist

Jesus, this woman truly can do it all. She's a wife, mother, singer, dancer, actress, fitness guru, fashion designer, model, author, tv presenter, and now Melanie has a weekly column in Closer Magazine entitled "Mel B: The Spiciest Column Ever" which features news about her hectic schedule, certain fashion trends and ideas that she wants to share with the masses, and some of her views on the latest celebrity gossip from that week.

Here is the introduction from her first column featured in the February 21st issue of the magazine.


Surprise, it’s me, Mel B! And I’m going to be here every week with a glimpse into my life. Plus, you’ll be getting my views on all the latest news and celeb gossip. Right now, the family and I are preparing to up sticks to go to Las Vegas, where I’ll be performing my new revue-style show at the Planet Hollywood Hotel on the strip. As we speak, my name is in huge lights and tickets for my Peep Show are selling like hot cakes. The last time I was there was with the Spice Girls – so it’s quite a change to be going it alone this time around. I was dubious about living in Vegas – it’s a bit mental with all the gambling, isn’t it?! But my good pal, singer Toni Braxton, has lived there for years with her family. There’s actually a real suburbia away from the strip, but I won’t be based in a house – I’ll be living in a chic hotel until July! Cher and Bette Midler are performing
there too – and I can’t wait to meet them. I’ll be letting you know how I’m getting on each week in Closer.

The columns are featured on Melanie's official website each week so be sure to stop on by and have a look.

Geri Halliwell: Bride To Be?

Alright, I actually have more Melanie B posts for you all but it seems like I've posted only stories about her lately. She's a busy little thing.... well, that and I've been lazy. However, this post is all about Geri.

Our Ginger girl, who has been enjoying her success as a Children's Author since the end of the Spice Girls tour, recently got engaged to her boyfriend, Italian millionaire Fabrizio Politi over the Christmas holidays. The couple who had only been seen dating for a few weeks before their engagement, made the announcement through Geri's management company, 19 Management.

Though the proposal news was quite fast, the couple has announced that they have no plans for an immediate marriage as they are enjoying their engagement. Good idea Geri. It's best to know each other before you rush into something like marriage lol.

Congrats to the happy couple.
UPDATE: Geri is not engaged anymore and perhaps she never really was. It seems to be a rumour like all stories eventually turn out to be. Thank you, to two of my readers for bringing this to my attention. Much appreciated!


Mel B: On The Bonnie Hunt Show (February 2009)

Of course I can't add the Ellen interview without adding the interview that Mel did with talk show host Bonnie Hunt. Now, we didn't get much more information out of Mel about her new Vegas Revue "Peepshow", except that it is starting March 30th and it will run for 6 months. But what more do we need to know really? If it's Mel and showgirls, it will no doubt be fabulous.

What I want to know is, is her album release going to be pushed back until she finishes the Vegas show? And is the album even near done? We seem to be waiting forever with this album.

Mel B: On The Ellen Degeneres Show (February 2009)

For those of you who may have missed the very funny interview that Mel did with talk show host/comedian Ellen Degeneres last month, here is the video for you viewing pleasure.

Watch as Mel tries to teach Ellen some of the workout moves from her Totally Fit DVD and Ellen's hilarious comic touches to make them a bit more fun.

Totally Fit is available in stores now. I have it and trust me when I say it works.


Melanie C: A New Baby Spice Arrival

Well, she's been out of the spotlight preparing for the birth of her first child, and now I am happy to announce that at 4:10 yesterday afternoon (Sunday February 22, 2009) Melanie C and her longtime boyfriend Thomas Starr, welcomed a healthy baby girl into the world.

Melanie's official website stated that the proud Mom and Dad have named their 8lbs 3oz. bundle of joy Scarlet Starr, and that both Melanie and the baby are doing fine.

Congratulations Melanie and Tom!!!

Mel B: On The Bonnie Hunt Show (Tune In)

Mel is making more appearances in the American media but this time it will be on behalf of her new Las Vegas Revue show. That's right, our Totally Fit, Dancing Queen will be appearing on The Bonnie Hunt Show tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday February 24th) to talk about her latest endeavour which is a Las Vegas Burlesque Revue called "Peepshow".

The show which is being touted as a cross between Girl Power and Showgirls will be performed at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will be starting in the next few months. Check out your local listings to see when the Bonnie Hunt Show airs in your area and tune in to hear more information about Peepshow from the horses mouth.

Thanks Nicole for the tip.

PS. I don't know how many of you have bought and are using Mel's Totally Fit DVD, but I am. The workouts are a killer but I do feel so good after.


Victoria Beckham: Vanity Fair Cover (February 2009)

Our beloved Posh Spice is the cover girl for the February 2009 issue of Vanity Fair magazine's Italian publication. In it, the 34 year old fashion diva confesses her love for gay men.

“I love women. I like them as friends, as interesting people to speak with. But I love gay men. I always say it. Inside me there is a gay man who wants to come out! With heterosexual men I have nothing in common – excluding my husband, brothers and father, you understand.”

So, there's a gay man inside Victoria, well, at least one of us is getting off with her husband. Considering you work in the fashion industry, I would say that it's a good idea to keep us gays in your good graces. Well done.

Mel B: Appearing On Ellen (Tune In)

Hi everyone,

As some of you may have read in my post Mel B: On Virgin Territory, Mel will be appearing this Wednesday February 11th as a guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show. She will be interviewed while demonstrating some work out moves from her newly released Totally Fit DVD.

A reader of this page requested that I devote a full post to this information and I am more than happy to oblige (as I've said, this blog is just as much yours as it is mine). Be sure to check your local listings for show times in your area and visit http://www.ellentv.com/ for more information.

Thank you Nicole for your request.


Mel B: On The Today Show (February 2009)

Yes Ladies and Gentlemen. Another Mel B post. During her 2 day whirlwind promotional tour in New York Mel also stopped by The Today Show to speak with Kathy Lee Gifford (when the hell did she join the staff at the Today Show?) and Hoda Kotb (who has clearly never done a workout in her life). Hilarious stuff, check it out.

Mel B: On Regis & Kelly (February 2009)

I thought that Mel would only be doing an interview with Regis and Kelly when she appeared on their show yesterday, but instead she had the two hosts change into work out clothes and join her in a demonstration of the workout that you will find on her Totally Fit DVD.

More Mel news to come, she's the only one of the girls who has been busy recently.


Melanie B: On Virgin Territory

For all you fans in the New York area, Melanie is currently in your fair city of Manhattan for two days promoting her Totally Fit DVD release. She appeared on Regis and Kelly this morning and she will be appearing for a meet and greet (autograph signing) at the Virgin Megastore in Time Square (not the one in Union Square, they don't deserve a visit from Mel, Time Square!!!!!!) tomorrow evening at 5pm. So be sure to head on down for that.

Mel will also appear this evening at the New York Stock Exchange to ring the closing bell and has more US tv appearances planned for this coming week and a half including a visit to The Today Show tomorrow morning (February 3rd) at 10:15, as well as a visit to The Ellen Degeneres Show next Wednesday February 11th.

Be sure to check your local listings and tune in.

Melanie B: On Loose Women (January 2009)

While in the UK last month to promote her new fitness DVD "Totally Fit", Melanie stopped by the Loose Women set to have a chat with the four ladies about her family, the Spice Girls, her new Vegas show she is working on, and how her new DVD will help you to lose weight fast.

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately but my computer was busted and I just got a new one so more posts will be on their way as soon as I can sort them all.


Victoria Beckham: Wardrobe Website Up

It's been quite awhile since Victoria's official website has been updated with any new material, but now it is the homepage for her foray into the clothing business. The intro video shows many of her models (who have been previously shown in the original photoshoot for the line) running around a mansion and hiding about the house dressed in one of the 10 dresses that make up the collection.

Once past the video, you can choose between the numbers 1 to 10 and get more information on each of the individual styles. Or enjoy reading Victoria's introduction letter which reads as follows....

I am a woman who has loved fashion for as long as I can remember and over the years I have dreamt of creating a collection of dresses that embody my own personal style and embrace the female form. Here in my first 10 dresses, I have designed garments aimed to make women feel confident and timelessly stylish. Every detail has been taken into consideration from fabric through to structure with every piece construsted to flatter a woman's figure. I have enjoyed every stage and part of this process. I am blessed to be able to do what I love and am thankful beyond words for the opportunity I have been given and the support I am receiving. Thank you for sharing my dream and true passion. This first collection has been a lifetime in the making. I hope you enjoy wearing it as much as I have loved creating it.


If you are interested in purchasing any of Victoria's designs and are unaware of what stores they are being stocked in, you can take a look at the Worldwide Stocklist to get an idea of where they are being sold in your area. Be aware that these designs are not widely available yet.

PS. The photo's for this post are the new Giorgio Armani women's underwear print ads featuring the lovely Mrs. Beckham.

Emma Bunton: Something For The Weekend

Okay, she hasn't really been around but she's kind of the Spice Girl that's known for taking more breaks away from the public eye. But for all you lucky fans in the UK, Emma will be co-hosting the morning chatshow "Something For The Weekend" this Sunday (January 18th) at 10am with regular host Tim Lovejoy. It's not a performance, but at least it's something. Hopefully she'll put out more music someday. Until then, we'll just have to keep looking for her on the telly.

Sidenote: Isn't Tim Lovejoy the name of Reverand Lovejoy on The Simpsons?
