All the rumors and speculation can end. The Spice Mommies have announced their reunion. The former all-female pop group attended a photo session at the The Royal Greenwich Observatory in London this morning to announce their intent to cash in on their former fame with a world tour to start this December. (Since they’re at an observatory, I’ll give them a pass for standing in front of a giant globe, which is so 1997, and kind of apropos for them I guess.)
Their poorly-designed website has more details:

A reunion has been rumored to be in the works for a while, with Sport Spice, Melanie C, rumored to be the sole holdout. She spoke favorably of a reunion in a recent interview and I heard that they’re going to receive a whopping $20 million each for the tour. I never really thought it would happen, although I’m looking forward to it now. There’s bound to be a lot of good gossip to come out of this one.
