GERI BEGGED FOR FORGIVENESS

Message par Mess le Sam 7 Juil - 14:20

WITHOUT GERI HALLIWELL there would have been no SPICE GIRLS.

She was the driving force behind the world-conquering band and after she quit the rest found that when Five Became Four, it didn’t work.

So it should come as no surprise to learn that it was Geri who worked behind the scenes to get the warring Spice Girls back together for their worldwide comeback.

It was up to GINGER, the girls’ original mouthpiece, leader and figurehead, to persuade her former bandmates to dust down their platform heels and settle their differences.

Geri’s biggest hurdle was convincing VICTORIA “POSH” BECKHAM to get on board.

Unlike the others, multi-millionaire Victoria didn’t need the money from a reunion tour and she was the most devastated by Geri’s “betrayal” when she quit the band in May 1998.

So Geri was forced to go cap-in-hand to rebuild their friendship before she could even think about getting the other girls on board.

A top-level source in the Spice Girls’ inner sanctum — talking on condition of anonymity — told me yesterday: “Geri began getting in contact with Victoria again in 2004. She knew how hurt Victoria was but she also knew how to push the right buttons.

“Geri broke down in front of Victoria, apologised for leaving the band in the way she did and begged for her forgiveness.

“She also told Victoria how awful her life was at the time. She was lonely, confused, didn’t have a man and didn’t even have a place to call home. Victoria started to feel sorry for Geri.”

The girls were then regularly in touch and Victoria found she enjoyed spending time with her old bandmate.

So when it came to organising a Spice reunion the girls’ manager, SIMON FULLER, knew there was only one of the band who could get them back together — Geri.

When the band first formed, it was Geri who convinced them to sack original managers Chris and Bob Herbert and hire Fuller.

It was also Geri who urged them to sack Fuller years later.

I well remember one of my first few encounters with Geri.

She gave me a lecture on Girl Power and told me not to take any “sh*t” from men in the office.

She was feisty, charming and full of energy. But most of all she was desperate to be loved.

That desperation stems from her childhood.

Watford-born Geri came from a broken home, and although she has a good relationship with her mum Anna, a cleaner, she never got over the death of her father Laurence when she was just 21.

At first she thought fame would make her happy and stopped at nothing to get it.

Naked modelling shoots, dancing in cages in nightclubs, she did whatever she was asked if it meant a step on the showbiz ladder.

But once she did get what she wanted, she found it wasn’t what she really, really wanted — so she quit.

When she walked out on the girls Geri thought if she did something positive with her fame she would find happiness.

She began working for the UN as an ambassador and campaigned tirelessly on behalf of breast cancer charities. Yet still she was unfulfilled.

She achieved some success as a solo artist but her love life was beyond disastrous.

She embarked on ill-fated romances with ROBBIE WILLIAMS, who later went on to call her “demonic” in an interview, and DJ CHRIS EVANS, who dumped her after coming home to find she had moved all of his belongings around in his home, and moved in stuff of her own.

They had only been an item for a couple of weeks.

A source close to Geri said: “She was devastated when Chris dumped her. She sank into a bit of a depression and refused to leave the house.

"She has had well-documented problems with eating disorders and incidents like this one often sparked off binge sessions.”

Robbie and Geri had seemed the perfect match. They both had come out of hugely successful bands, had similar backgrounds — and similar difficulties coping with fame.

The source continued: “They spent a summer together and Robbie even wrote a song about her, but in the end she freaked him out with her mad behaviour.

“Robbie called her and apologised about the ‘demonic’ quote.

"He claimed he had never said it in an interview, but Geri was devastated and also incredibly hurt.”
The fact is, Geri is a great girl who is extremely caring and lots of fun.

She is also very needy. Geri’s crisis in confidence often manifested itself in binge eating. In her autobiography she has confessed to suffering from eating disorders and she once shrunk down to a skeletal size six.

Geri’s quest for personal fulfilment and happiness also led her to take up fads — diets, self-help books, yoga, you name it, she tried it.

I have always admired Geri’s single-handed determination to improve herself.

When she fell pregnant to scriptwriter SACHA GERVASI in 2005 it looked like Geri might finally have found the route to happiness — motherhood.

She had always wanted to be a mother but had struggled to find a meaningful relationship.

Sadly for Geri, Sacha was less than thrilled, and the couple split just six weeks into their romance.

A pal of Geri’s said: “She has left the door open for Sacha to be involved with baby Bluebell but they aren’t in contact.”

Bluebell may well turn out to be Geri’s saviour in the long run.

But for the moment she has turned to her old “family” — the Spice Girls — for support.

Yet her plan to get back together with her old bandmates could have disaster written all over it.





When they were a five-piece she and MEL B were at each other’s throats. They were either best mates or at fisticuffs. While Geri was the bossy, unofficial leader of the group, when it came to live performing she wasn’t as capable as the other girls.

Posh, Scary, Baby and Sporty had all had professional dancing lessons — Geri had just blagged her way in using her looks and personality.

I remember looking at pictures of Geri on that tour when she looked like she was about to burst into tears at any moment.

A well-placed Spice source told me in a phone call yesterday: “Geri was the leader of the band, the one who bossed the others around and really organised everything.

"So when she went on tour and struggled with the choreography the other girls got their revenge by giving her a hard time.

“The same thing could happen all over again this time round.”

I hope for Geri’s sake it doesn’t.

I’ve always had a soft spot for her, even if she is bit mad. She wouldn’t be a Spice Girl if she wasn’t!
