Mel B just gave a whole new meaning to the famous, well-quoted "Wannabe" lyrics, "If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends." As it was revealed this week, Scary Spice reportedly once had a fling with Geri Halliwell, i.e. Ginger Spice. While they only had one alleged sexual experience, Mel B claims that it was "a fun thing" and she wasn't afraid to reveal the details — even though, admittedly, Mel B had a feeling that Halliwell might not want this personal information publicized. Here is what Mel B said about her one-time romance with her fellow Spice Girl.
She's going to hate me for this because she's 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.
The suggested one night stand was confessed by Mel B during her appearance on Good Morning Britain, based on a clip that aired on Monday. The musician and television personality was asked about a longstanding rumor about her and Geri Halliwell, claiming that they got together during the mid 90s. While most celebrities would typically dismiss such notions, even if they were true, Mel B confessed that these rumors had merit. She went on to confirm the speculation that they had an intimate night together, although it only happened once in their lives and it was just for kicks and giggles. As Mel B went on to explain what happened that fateful night:
It was just that once. And hopefully, when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won't deny it. Because it was just a fun thing.
In addition to confirming this rumor, Mel B added that Geri Halliwell had "great boobs" and that it was "the past," and that they should have to be so modest about something that happened over twenty years earlier. Nevertheless, both Scary and Ginger Spice have both moved on in their lives, and this moment — as Mel B reiterated several times — was simply a one-time thing and it wasn't anything serious. Just a bit of fun, although it's a saucy detail from their pop music history that will surely cause quite a big splash among their many, many fans worldwide.

This incident might've been several years ago in the past, the Spice Girls are continuing to give their fans an opportunity to see them live with a brand new tour that is happening with the famous girl group minus Victoria Beckham, who is famously no longer involved with the pop music ensemble despite multiple attempts from the other members to reunite the whole band. Nevertheless, Mel B and Geri Halliwell will be spending more time with each other in the future, and while it's unlikely that anything will happen in a romantic fashion again, one should never say never. Because if it happened once, who knows if it will happen again?
