Time to bury the egos: Bickering Spice Girls delay musical as they send Jennifer Saunders 'crazy'
14:53 GMT, 3 April 2012
You'd think after two decades they may have made their peace.
But the Spice Girls bickering has caused their musical to be delayed.
The latest ruckus between Mel B and Mel C, who are disagreeing on details for the upcoming show, are sending Jennifer Saunders 'crazy'.
Squabbling: Spice Girls are preventing their musical from hitting the stage
The British comedienne is penning the
script, but the opinionated Scary and Sporty are preventing the
production from moving forward.
All of the girls, including Victoria
Beckham, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell, are involved in the project,
although none of them will star in it.
A source told the New York Post:
'Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm just cannot agree. It is
driving Jennifer crazy.'

The insider also revealed Posh's intense work
schedule with her fashion line, while juggling four children and living across the Atlantic is
also hindering progress.
The musical has been in the works since 2010 and was due to debut in London by the end of this year.
Similarly as Mamma Mia is not actually
about Abba, but rather features their songs, the Spice Girls musical is of the same format.
The show will follow the story of a
mother who takes her daughter to a talent competition, against the
backdrop of the girls' soundtrack.
Despite being known as the outspoken one once upon a time, it seems Geri has been keeping her head low as she concentrates on her own reality TV show.
It's time for the Kardashians to scoot over, as Ginger has signed a deal with Sky Living and agreed for the cameras to follow her every move.
The fly-on-the-wall show promises to feature her bandmates as they prepare to launch their musical, while showcasing a portrait of her life.
A source told The Sun: 'Geri is keen to do some TV as she's seen the other girls doing bits and bobs.
'Sky Living reckon she fits their female-skewed brand. Geri is really excited about the project, which is at the very early stages.'
