The Spice Girls Story Documentary

This is the story of the Spice Girls who went from being young hopefuls to global pop icons. This doc talks about the musical that featured but reinvented their songs back in 2012 called Viva Forever.


Geri went back to the location of their first video, Wannabe 16 years later. It was the song that put them on the map and launched them into superstardom. And  Mel C went back to the recording studio where they recored Wannabe.

Victoria said it really well when she said, “I think the Spice Girls songs really have stood the test of time. The lyrics are good, the melodies are really good, they’re catchy. And the Spice Girls song take people back to a really happy time. People hear the songs and it takes them back to having fun and being young and that’s what we were all about.”

The producers of the musical Viva Forever wanted the show to be a modern fable about girl power, fame and celebrity, and not about the Spice Girls themselves but their spirit.  Judy Craymer, one of the producers, was the genius behind the hit show Mama Mia.


Emma shared a sweet story talking about how she was really homesick in the beginning of the band and how she got the name Baby Spice because she was a big baby, as well as being the youngest of the group.

The girls talked about how they were poorly managed in the beginning of the group and how they were so eager to achieve stardom and decided to leave their management.



Mel C’s mom was also interviewed about her memories of their early days and knowing they were going to make it. Victoria’s mom also talked about how the girls would say when we are famous instead of if we are famous.

The girls said they wanted to have a musical because there are so many stories to be told. They began meeting with producers and wanted Judy Craymer. Judy and the writer listened to the songs and found themes among them for the musical.


Geri shared the first picture ever taken of them being the Spice Girls. She said her favorite photos are the ones from the early days because they represent such hope, and the dream, and the beginning.

The girls talked about liking and identifying with their Spice Girl names, particularly Posh, Baby, and Scary. Mel B talked about how the girls different personalities balanced each other out.

Listening to the new versions of the songs gave me goosebumps literally every time. Geri said that too. She said it was like passing the songs to a new generation. When she watched the rehearsal of the musical Geri had tears in her eyes.


The Spice Girls were relatable and that’s what they say their success came from. They were real girls and were down to earth. Girls wanted to be them and boys wanted to date them.

The girls talked about the height of their fame and how incredibly busy they were and how overwhelming and how overworked they were.

Geri said looking back she understood that the girls were upset with her and rightfully so and how awful she felt and how painful it was for her.


This doc also talked about their 2007 reunion tour and also how they reunited again for the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony. The doc shows the opening night of the premiere of the musical with all 5 girls in attendance.


The girls talked about what being a Spice Girl meant to them and how close they still all are. It’s a really sweet and heartwarming doc that I really enjoyed. Girl power is really contagious.


Spice Girls Giving You Everything Documentary

loved this documentary! I grew up with the Spice Girls and in my group of friends when all picked which Spice Girl we were and I was Posh Spice. She was my favorite and I still love her to this day. What’s not to love? She’s married to gorgeous David Beckham, she has 4 adorable kids, and runs a fashion empire, and she has a British accent.


But I love all the other Spice Girls too. The message was girl power and positivity and the whole world had Spice Girl fever. I am so happy they made this doc, it’s so much fun to look back and hear their old songs.

They interviewed all the girls separately. They talked about their childhoods, how they got into the Spice Girls, and all their fame and success. It’s so interesting to hear what they thought and how they dealt with all of the pressure and their successes differently.

There was lots of great footage of their early days when they first formed the group. They all lived together in a house and bonded and got to know each other very quickly. And something I never heard knew was there was a different girl that was in the group but she didn’t fit in as well so in came Emma.

It’s crazy to hear how quickly things happened for them. Wannabe was their first single and it launched them immediately. And Say You’ll Be There, their second single transformed the girls from a one hit wonder into a band.


The girls were incredibly ambitious and wanted to be the biggest girl band in the world. And they achieved it. They were known world wide and had number one hits in multiple countries.

They also talked about how surreal it was to meet famous people like Nelson Mandela and Prince Charles.


The group dynamic was also discussed. They talked about how they were together all the time and how sometimes they needed a break from each other. And how when there were arguments and how they would gang up on each other and different personalities clashed at times. They also discussed having eating disorders for two of the girls.

Once they were successful they were getting to be overworked and weren’t given many days off. There was so many opportunities and travel and things were going at such a fast pace that the girls said they weren’t able to fully appreciate their success and what was going on because they were so exhausted. Due to this the girls decided it was time to fire their manager, Simon Fuller.

In 1998 was the year Geri, aka Ginger Spice, left the band and broke the hearts of millions. Geri discussed the events leading up to her decision to leave and the other girls talked about how they dealt with it and how they had to keep going without her. Victoria said it was never the same after she left.


Melanie B aka Scary Spice and Victoria became pregnant at the same time in 1998. In the early months of their pregnancies they still performed. The pregnancies meant it was time to take a break. The girls started doing solo stuff, but knew they wanted to come back together.


They showed footage of them announcing their reunion tour that was in 2007.  Mel B said she always knew they wold get back together. They showed the girl reuniting and talked about how good it felt to be back together. Geri called it the reconciliation tour. They also decided to bring their old manager, Simon Fuller back. They talked about being older and wiser now and how they appreciated being a Spice Girl and were so proud of what they achieved together.


And the doc ends with the girls preparing to get on stage for their reunion tour back in 2007, after 10 years they were back together again as the beloved Spice Girls.

If you loved the Spice Girls I think you will love this documentary. So get watching and spice up your life! 🙂

Fashion Designer Victoria Beckham



Where to start? Victoria Beckham has got a lot going on. Let’s start with who she’s married to, a one Mr. David Beckham. That is a fete in and of itself. She’s a lucky lady for that alone. But she also has 4 beautiful children, 3 boys and 1 girl. She used to be a Spice Girl. She is successful high end fashion designer. And she’s got a banging bod. She’s got quite the life. I love the way she dresses, she always dresses in clean lines, form fitting clothes, and solid colors. She knows what works for her and sticks to it. Good for her!
