As They Reunite, Access Looks Back At The Spice Girls' History

LONDON, England (June 29, 2007) — Ginger Spice and the rest of her Girl Power crew had a lot of fun leaving their mark on Prince Charles and the rest of the world back in the nineties. Now, after six years away, the Spice Girls are back for eleven shows in six continents with a $20 million paycheck for each of them.

Access investigates the Spice Girls then and now:

In 1998, The Spice Girls ruled the world. From shrill screams to smash singles, the late nineties were total Spicemania.

The fastest selling British act since the Beatles, selling over 55 million records worldwide broke up after seven years to pursue solo careers, so where are they now?

We all know Posh! A fashionista married to soccer stud David Beckham, mother of three beautiful boys and darling of the Cruise family, Victoria Beckham lives in a constant paparazzi presence!

The other four girls are settled down now, most are mothers, but back then it was pure madness,

America wanted the Spice Girls! After the smash single “wannabe” went to number one in 1997, their popularity soared.

The fever pitch kept rising, as their first movie, the mockumentary “SpiceWorld” took in nearly 80 million dollars. This girl power gang seemed to exude endless enthusiasm.

In 1998, Geri “Ginger” Spice left the band citing differences with the group. The parting, was not amicable.

“We’d be lying if we said we still spoke to her,” Posh told Access following the split. “I’d be gutted if it was me.”

Two years after Geri’s exit, the group released their next record, “Forever” in 2000 but just one year later, the Spice Girls were through. Until now – looking better than ever and still inciting screams, all five girls are back together for a reunion tour. Let the mania begin, again!
