Why Didn't Any Spice Girls Attend Victoria Beckham's Birthday Party?

Geri Halliwell was in London with her new boyfriend.

Mel C and Emma Bunton I believe are in the UK, so that explains their absence, but Mel B WAS in LA this weekend, as she was seen leaving Mr Chow's.

Is all not well in Spice-land? I thought friendships never end.

Your thoughts please.

Great investigative reporting Fashion Critic..I hadn't even thought of the Spice Girls absenteeism (Mel B.) from Victoria’s birthday bash! Humm..personally I think the tour was mostly business anyhow. Even before the tour how often did Victoria get together with any of the girls while in the U.S or even while traveling to the U.K??

Well Mel wasn't pictured on the day of the party in Santa Monica, so maybe she was busy and couldn't attend? I find it hard to believe she wasn't invited as Phoenix attended Brooklyn's party last month and Mel B wished Victoria happy birthday on Access Hollywood a few days ago. Perhaps they just had a drink at her house in private? Victoria's parents didn't attend her party the other day either, so maybe all is not well with her parents and Victoria then?!

Somethings gotta be up. Seems when the tour ended- they act like there wasn't one. I haven't seen photos of any of the 5 together.

i think there is something wrong with Mel B and victoria, but i dont know for sure, what i know for sure is Victoria and Geri have a good relationship right now since geri talked about her relationship with victoria recently...

I hope it's not because Mel wasn't "A-list" enough for the guest list. She and Victoria seemed to be spending a lot of time together before and during the tour.

I thought Gwen Stefani was pretty random, incidentally.

I think they all put on a good show; on and off the stage. I'm sure that the "friendships forever" attitudes were all for show.

Ever since they did the Re-union tour it gave me the feeling that they weren't in the best of terms...somehow I always thought most of the girls (Melb&Geri) were Jelous? of Victoria...

I think the truth is we'll never know unless someone spills the beans. It's all probably back stage. Also, the spice girls reason for doing the reunion was to show their kids what they did, they never really mentioned it was becaue for them to get back in touch with eachother.

Mel B was very much available and could have partied up at Victoria's B'day bash instead of going clubbing the very same night at a celebrity joint called Foxtail i think. There is a video of her and her husband walking to and from the club in a thread on the website x17online where she stops to chat with Eddie Murphy's Ex Tracy Edmonds (the headliner). Whatever ""Friendship never ends" PR they shoved down our throats during the Spice girl Reunion tour did work for as long as it needed to last.

Why would Mel B give a birthday shout-out on Access Hollywood last week if they weren't on good terms? We don't know the facts. And I did not get the impression during the tour that Mel B and VB didn't get on, I saw loads of pix of them holding hands. And answering someones question, Mel C and Emma attended the Capital Awards together last year, so Spice Girls have been seen together after the tour. I am sure they do socialise in private more than in public for the fact that the media then makes stories about how "they are getting back together", when all they are doing is having lunch.

For all we know, Mel B might have simply gone to Victoria's house for a drink for her birthday, they can socialise away from the cameras living in LA actually! We all know they aren't joined by the hip and have their own lives though, but they'll always be friends.

Fashion Critic said...

Toni, I merely asked a question. Of course we don't know the facts which is why I asked you all for your thoughts.

Brenda said...

bbperfume, you are mistaken, Mel B was pictured at Foxtail some days BEFORE the birthday party in Santa Monica. I have researched in detail all the paparazzi pix and Mel B was not pictured out in the usual LA spots on the 20th April. She was at Foxtail on April 18th and Mr Chows on April 21st, but no such sightings on April 20th. Who knows, maybe she was just busy?

Janie said...

You know i have a feeling that the "big birthday bash" was a Hollywood thing for all the lets-hang-with-the-beckhams mob. I think her family and close friends ie the Spice's may have all seen each other privately/socialy at V&D's home. Just a thought.

I belive Mel B was busy shooting for her upcoming ultimo modelling career

They were in beverly hills at a mansion for the bra and nicker ad's

Fashion Critic said...

kaddy-babey...that shoot wrapped weeks ago and you can see the pictures here

As you can see from the pictures it was a day shoot, not a night shoot which is when Victoria's party was at night.

I know you want to believe they are still buddies, but......

Hi there!
Fashion Critic, I don't know if you remember me, I once sent you an email from Spain...
I just think Mel B couldn't go to the party because of her daughter...She could just be sick, right?
Or maybe they went for a lunch in Victoria's house! It's all possible...
Remember V&D don't go much out in the nights coz of their children...
Take care all of you,
Bye...
