Mel B still blames Ginger Spice.

Scary Spice just won’t let go.

Mel B (or Melanie Brown, if you want to be formal), of leopard-print-platform-shoe Spice Girls fame, has spoken out about the band’s 1998 demise.

And she’s blamed it all on Ginger (Geri Halliwell, 42).

Before you say “I ALREADY KNEW THAT” (which is fair, because we all knew that Geri packed up her little Union Jack dress and left the band first), this is the first time the details have been discussed. Mel, 39, spoke to Larry King in a recent interview.

“When Geri left the group it was bad. She left on my birthday and didn’t tell anybody. Just didn’t show up. We had the rest of the tour. The American part of the tour,” said Mel.

“We were all eventually going to go our own way, anyway … We always knew Victoria was going into fashion, Mel C was always gonna do music, Emma wanted to do radio, and I kind of wanted to do a bit of everything … but it did come early.”

Scary also revealed that, as the two natural leaders of the girl power group, she and Ginger “fought like cats and dogs” during the height of the group’s 90’s fame.

Sigh. They always looked so close.

Furthermore, Mel still isn’t letting Geri live it down. “I still remind her of it. I saw her a couple of weeks ago and I said, ‘Do you remember when you left on my birthday?’” She does say, however, that the bitterness is coming to an end.


Come on, girls. Can’t you just put on some platform shoes and drive around in a Union Jack-themed bus like the good ol’ days?

When they were good, they were so, so good. And this is where it began:
