Spice Girls Victoria Beckham and Mel B fall out….but for how long?

They famously said ‘Friendship Never Ends’ but it would appear two of the Spice Girls are not so sure.
I can reveal Victoria Beckham and Melanie Brown have been embroiled in a behind the scenes row that’s been bubbling for the past couple of months.
The pair – who currently both live in Los Angeles – fell out three months ago when Scary Mel started filming her Bravo reality show It’s A Scary World. I’m told Mel bombarded fashion designer Victoria with phone calls and texts to borrow a vast array of her pricey designer gowns for the show but was turned down because Posh didn’t have any gowns to lend as she’d sold out of outfits to lend to her ‘pal’.
My Spice source reveals: “Victoria would have lent her outfits if she physically could have but she just didn’t have anything to lend. The samples were not the right size for Mel’s curves and the sizes she needed were not in stock.
“Victoria would have lent to her if she could, obviously. But Mel seemed to take major offence that she didn’t pull strings. And she was fuming.
“The trouble is that even if she had sent her dresses the likelihood is she wouldn’t have gotten them back. That’s what Mel is known for. And although that thought didn’t even come into the equation – Victoria got it in the neck from her.”
The source tells me the pair have yet to speak since the falling out – which involved Mel sending poor Victoria a few choice texts.
“They’ve not spoken for months,” says my mole. “The texts were very Mel and she was clearly very angry. She explodes and goes mental for a bit but eventually she simmers down.
“They will kiss and make up but for now they’re not on the best terms. Victoria’s not too worried about it – it’s Mel who’s still holding a grudge.”
The pair have always sparred off each other since the early days of Spiceworld. Mel even admitted recently that they hardly speak. She said: “Victoria and I are very different. People bracket us together because we live in the same city and we’re both interested in fashion. Victoria’s fashion line has been very successful and hopefully mine will be too. But that’s where the similarities begin and end.”
Fortunately I’m sure the pair will have to – or at least be forced to – kiss and make up soon when the girls are reunited for the premiere of the Spice Girls musical Viva Forever which is due to open later in the year.
Come on ladies – life’s too short to hold a grudge!
