TALK OF THE TOWN: Nervy Posh & # 39; s fears about Mel & # 39; s & # 39; dynamite & # 39; book
Katie Hind for The Mail on Sunday
The relationship between Victoria Beckham and Melanie Brown has been frozen for years. And they are now set to reach a low point over Scary's upcoming autobiography, which I'm sure is the absolute dynamite & # 39; is.
Posh and those close to her are so nervous about what Mel is about to reveal that they've tried to find out what's in the book for publication later this month.
Their fears have been reinforced by the fact that the other band members – Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Melanie Chisholm – have received copies of the memoirs in advance.

& # 39; The girls look a lot like sisters & # 39 ;, tells a source near Victoria. "They quibble, they fall out and they invent it, but this book is going to be explosive, so of course Posh and her team are afraid of the worst. Victoria did not like it and Mel certainly has the reputation to finish it. & # 39;
Victoria and Mel's rivalry began at the height of the phenomenal success of the Spice Girls in the mid-nineties, when they often clashed with dance routines.
The relationship took a new turn in 2007 after Posh, husband David and their children moved to Los Angeles, where Mel had lived since the early nineties.

Mel had hoped she would be able to cope with her old friend and she felt shunned when Posh would rather talk to actresses Katie Holmes and Eva Longoria.
Mel also says that Victoria refused to borrow her clothing from her fashion range, and claimed that Posh thought she would lower the tone of the label.
The band – minus Victoria – announced a comeback UK tour last week. I can show that tickets for their Wembley Stadium show on June 15 – for sale at the official Ticketmaster agency for between £ 66 and £ 146 – will be sold for as much as £ 4,177 at the controversial resale site Viagogo. It also sells passes to the prestigious Golden Circle at the front of the stage for £ 2,636 – more than ten times the face value.
The high prices of Viagogo have made Ed Sheeran, Adele and Taylor Swift so outraged that they have forbidden the agency to sell tickets for their shows.
Spice Girls fans went to Twitter to share their disappointment and Shadow Culture Secretary Tom Watson said: "Again loyal fans are being ripped off by Viagogo.
& # 39; Even the standard price is steep for many fans, but these prices are simply extortionate. & # 39;
