Mel B is promoting the Spice Girls reunion tour, sans Victoria Beckham, which starts in two months. Since we know that Posh is never going to join the tour, Mel can’t keep acting like Victoria is on the verge of signing, which was her press strategy for months. In a new interview with Piers Morgan, Mel reveals that she hooked up with Geri Halliwell for a one night stand at some point. There’s no time frame and this is reported by The Sun, which provides that part of the transcript for context. Mel just nods her head yes and then talks about how great Ginger Spice’s boobs were. Mel says that Geri won’t be pleased that she is talking about this, but each of the Spice Girls is getting £2.2 for the tour. I’m sure Geri will forgive her.
Mel B has revealed she enjoyed a steamy one-night stand with fellow Spice Girl Geri Halliwell.
She tells Piers Morgan’s Life Stories: “We were best friends. It just happened. Have you ever done that?”
But Mel’s bombshell revelation could infuriate her pal’s millionaire hubby — and rock the Spice Girls summer reunion
Friends say F1 mogul Christian Horner, 45, is unlikely to appreciate Mel blabbing about the bandmates’ night of passion.
Scary Spice Mel, 43, let slip while filming Piers Morgan’s Life Stories on Friday night.
Until now their romp had been so hush-hush that Mel had left it out of her upcoming autobiography Brutally Honest.
But pressed by host Piers, she admitted: “She (Geri) is going to hate me for this because she is all posh in her country house and her husband, but it’s a fact.
“It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.
“We were best friends. Have you ever done that?” And she added of Geri: “She had great boobs.”
Piers asked: “So just once?” Mel replied: “Yeah.”
Triumphant Piers added: “This is a bombshell. A Spice Girls bombshell. You have never admitted this before have you? People are going to be fascinated.”
Mel said: “Yeah and I have said it now. All done. She is going to kill me and so is her husband.”
She added: “Hopefully when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won’t deny it, because it was just a thing, a fun thing.”
Sources say Mel made a panicked phone call to apologise to Geri straight after the show.
Geri, 46, wed Red Bull team boss Christian in 2015 and has said: “To be married to Christian is everything I ever wanted.”
A source said: “The girls all know Mel struggles to keep her mouth shut but Mel C who was in the audience was visibly horrified when it all came out.
“The tour is just two months’ away they don’t want anything jeopardising it, but there were real fears this would upset Geri’s husband and cause serious issues.
Mel tends to be outlandish so I don’t know if she got the OK from Geri to tell this story. It’s calculated either way. Mel added that “I didn’t put it in my book because that wasn’t what my book was about. It was brutally honest in a different way.” Mel was probably saving this story for now, when they need to increase ticket sales ahead of the tour. Now she has everyone talking about how hot Scary and Ginger must have been together. Also, it’s true that sometimes best friends hook up and realize that they’re not meant to be together. That happens with people of all orientations. The verdict is often “That was fun but weird. We can’t do this again.” It’s sometimes easier to let it be a one-off instead of prolonging the inevitable breakup, especially if you want to remain friends and especially if you work together. Otherwise it could get really awkward.
However a “source” aka Geri told ET that this wasn’t true. Also ET points out that Mel C (Sporty) said this was the first she heard about it.
A source tells ET that Mel’s claims are “untrue,” adding that the supposed admission was “just Mel B being Mel B.”
Halliwell has been married to Christian Horner, the head of a Formula 1 racing team, since 2015. Mel was married to film producer Stephen Belafonte from 2007 to 2017.
According to Mail on Sunday, Melanie Chisholm — aka Mel C — was in attendance for the interview and Morgan asked her if she was aware of this supposed sexual encounter, to which she replied, “I don’t know anything.”
“Oh whatever, Mel,” Mel B told her.
“This is all new to me,” Mel C said, defending herself.
I would have liked it if Geri denied this on the record, but again she’s getting paid £2.2 million. You can tell a lot of stories about me, true and untrue, for a fraction of that.

2 became 1 and they spiced up their life with a little zigazigah.
Stop right now, thank you very much (I need somebody with a human touch).
I feel sorry for Mel B’s kids, they have gone through the ringer already with the coverage about her last divorce and now this in the press too. I get that she is a “big” personality and that this kind of stuff gets clicks in the press, but does she not stop to think about the impact on her school age children. Being a young’un can be tough enough without this click bait.
I agree with Vintage that a man saying this stuff would be treated differently, this also feeds into the neckbeards view of lesbian/bi-women relationships as performative for the male gaze.
Her just sharing it doesn’t feed into the view of lesbian/ bi-women relationships as performative for the male gaze. The problem is, just about everything a girl or woman does gets viewed through that lens.
Eh I was just having a bit of fun, also Geri brought it up first on the Howard Stern show (before she became Prudent Spice) And the rumor has been out there for years. If anyone thinks this is anything but a publicity stunt they should Tell Me Why and Move Over.
Really nice to sell out your friend for money if it’s 2.2 million dollars with a salacious story. If this were a man bragging about banging a friend I think there might be a little more outrage. And isn’t everyone sorry and ready with an apology AFTER the fact?
cough *ticket sales* cough
I’m here for high profile bisexual women consensually sharing whatever they have to share about their sexuality. It definitely will have homophobic slut-shamers on both sides crawling out of the woodwork. It can be easy to assume there are no problems on the left when it comes to treatment of members of the LGBTQ community and women, but there’s still a ways to go and a lot of jaded Roseanne biddies/ second-wave bigots who overstep. Then there are the hypocrites who will defend nonconsensual casting couch/rape rumors being spread about women and girls Because Gossip/they put themselves out there, but shame women for sharing anything about their sexuality themselves.
Mel B should have gotten Geri’s permission if she was going to go this route though. If she didn’t have it she could have changed the subject. Also, fuck Piers Morgan. I still hate him just as much as ever.
Agreed on all counts!
This wasn’t in her autobiography because that was about other ‘brutally honest’ stuff… what?
There’s no way she would have left something like this out of her autobiography! Pah!
I believe her autobiography was about her abusive marriage mostly, so devil’s advocate i can imagine not wanted to distract from that
I always thought these two had some sort of sizzling chemistry, moreso than friends so it’s kind of validating to know I might have picked up on it! It probably is true, but I can see why Geri wouldn’t want everyone to know especially as a wife and mother now. Also, loving the 90s eyebrows! So refreshing to not see 3D caterpillar brows!
