The Spice Girls have been riling up their old fan base with rumors of a 2016 reunion tour. However, when the Spice Girls rumors were brought up, it was indicated that Posh Spice (aka Victoria Beckham) has decided not to join — but is Caitlyn Jenner a likely candidate?
Caitlyn Jenner is the supreme choice of many Dancing with the Stars fans, and there has been a push to get Caitlyn Jenner in the show. Regardless, could there be another career trajectory in 2016 for Caitlyn Jenner as one of the Spice Girls.
Around the first of August, the media was bubbling with rumors that the Spice Girls would finally reunite.
BBC News reported the following on August 7 about how the Spice Girls reunion rumors got started.
“Last week, Mel B told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that ‘it’s about time’ for the group to get back together. She followed up her comments on US TV’s Today Show on Tuesday: ‘When you say it’s our 20th anniversary coming up, it does make you think, ‘Oh, my gosh, it really has been that long’.’ she said. ‘Hopefully, we’ll gather the troops around, and we’ll get to do something to celebrate it next year. It’s in my plan, I don’t know about anybody else’s.'”
Adding to that, it was declared that even if they did get back together for a 2016 reunion tour, the Spice Girls would not have Victoria Beckham joining them.
Jumping on board with the idea that Victoria Beckham would need to be replaced, Twitter and Mashable had many satirical suggestions.
Sadly, Emma Bunton (aka Baby Spice) was quick to announce to the press around August 7 that the rumors were not true — maybe.
While it seems like the end of the road for the Spice Girls reunion, the idea is not completely out of the question. If this is the case, the Spice Girls would need a serious replacement for Victoria Beckham — and Victoria would likely nominate Caitlyn Jenner.
Fans may forget that in June, Victoria Beckham was allegedly talking about Caitlyn Jenner in reference to a fashion career. With Victoria Beckham designing for Caitlyn Jenner, it is likely that Caitlyn would be the ideal “Posh” replacement for Victoria in the Spice Girls.
On June 21, the Daily Star wrote the following about Victorian Beckham’s “obsession” with Caitlyn Jenner.
“Top fashionista VB famously snubbed Kim Kardashian’s pleas to design her wedding dress, fearing it would ‘devalue’ her brand. But it appears [Caitlyn Jenner] has earned the Posh seal of approval… I’m told the former Spice Girl has told friends she’d love to style unlikely 65-year-old fashion icon Caitlyn in her latest collection… My source said: ‘Vic is a little bit obsessed by Caitlyn’s Vanity Fair shoot. She thinks [Caitlyn Jenner] looks absolutely stunning and desperately wants to style her and even include her in an upcoming fashion campaign.'”
But can Caitlyn Jenner do what is needed to perform with the Spice Girls? In addition to being a natural for the DWTS crowd, Caitlyn Jenner has been rapidly adding to a Spice Girls resume she never knew she had.
Along with being sighted dancing with her gal pal Candis Cayne, Caitlyn Jenner showed how great she could look on stage at a Spice Girls reunion concert at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. Introducing the 1980s hit singer Boy George, Caitlyn Jenner looked picture perfect in front of the band’s gear on stage on July 25.
Sadly, in the meantime, fans will have to wait and see if the Spice Girls are going to get back together — but it is clear that Caitlyn Jenner would have a vote of confidence from Victoria Beckham as a Posh Spice replacement.
