In 2012, the Spice Girls gave fans a thrill when they reunited for a performance at the London Olympics. But those hoping to see Mel Brown, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm and Victoria Beckham (Scary, Baby, Ginger, Sporty and Posh Spice, respectively) get together again are sure to be disappointed. According to Beckham, all she really, really wants is to leave the world of Spice behind her.
"I won't ever do it again," she vowed in an interview with Vanity Fair Italy and Spain. "Doing the Olympics was an incredible honor. I was so proud to do it, proud to be British. That was a perfect time to say, 'That's great. Thank you to everybody, but no more.' Sometimes you've got to know when it's time to leave the party."
Beckham might be ready to say so long to the party, but TODAY's Tamron Hall, who just so happens to be a Spice Girls super fan, isn't ready. While she agreed "in principle" with Posh's perspective, she countered, "C'mon! The Spice Girls?!
"When they showed up in London, I won't even reenact what I was doing, but I fainted (and) got back up. It was amazing," she explained.
"So this is devastating news for you," anchor Matt Lauer offered sympathetically.
"Pretty much," Hall said.
No doubt other Spice fans feel the same.
