Spice Girls Reunion Announcement Expected Next Week

Holy crap, they are actually going to do this.

It looks like the Spice Girls reunion has moved past the realm of pure hope and into reality. A press release today from the group's management team, 19 Entertainment, reads: "Following weeks of speculation, the Spice Girls are set to make an official announcement to the world regarding future plans on Thursday, June 28. Details regarding the announcement will be released in the coming days."

Earlier this week, a memo from the girls' management team urging them to "not become pregnant -- please!" leaked to a British tabloid, further fueling the rumors that there would be a reunion. The members of Spice have pursued solo careers since their last release as a group in 2000, and have been met with varying levels of success in the U.S. and abroad. None has been able to recapture the hype of the Spice Girls.

In related news, it's an extra good day for Spice Girl Mel B., who yesterday received the test results proving that actor Eddie Murphy is the father of her two-month-old baby. After the two split last year, Murphy told reporters that "I don't know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test."
