Spice Girls Documentary Could Happen If Victoria Beckham Doesn’t Ruin Everyone’s FunS

TV producers are kicking around the idea of a Spice Girls documentary that would ideally coincide with the premiere of the group's new musical Viva Forever. The 90-minute documentary would feature one-on-one interviews with Mel B, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, and Mel C, who will each hopefully get a minute or two of camera-time to stare into the lifeless eyes of their respective doll avatars and contemplate the Spice phenomenon of the late 90s. Missing from that litany is Victoria Beckham, who will have the opportunity to throw a wet, mildewy blanket over the whole shebang if she refuses to take part. Producers wouldn't dare film a documentary without Posh Spice, because that would be like trying to summon Captain Planet with only four rings, i.e. impossible. [Mirror]

  • In a still-developing story, TMZ reports that Rodney King, the man at the center of the L.A. riots, was found dead at the bottom of a pool this morning. He was 47-years-old. [TMZ]
  • A woman named Lucy Pavlovsky, who claims to have suffered stitch-worthy injuries in the melee between Chris Brown and Drake, has hired a lawyer and plans to sue someone, probably the club, but her lawyer is definitely open to suing a celebrity. [TMZ]
  • Contrary to some wanton rumor-mongering, Drake isn't facing arrest for the bar fight because cops have "no suspects, complaints or arrest warrants at this time," and you sort of need most of those things to get the wheels of justice spinning. [TMZ]
  • After vanishing much to the dismay of friends and family, and then entering rehab, Nick Stahl has reportedly left rehab against his doctor's recommendation. Stahl was spotted in a Los Angeles club a few days ago, but nobody's quite sure where he is right now, which either means that he's taking advanced courses in magic at UCLA, or he's quietly falling off the wagon in private.

  • Everyone knows where the fuck Lindsay Lohan is — back on the set of Liz & Dick, getting paid. [TMZ]
  • That's not the only iron Lindz has in the fire, though — she's set to star in a Bret Easton Ellis "contemporary thriller" The Canyons alongside pornstar James Deen. Deen says that he's super-duper excited to work with Lohan, because "if her media image is actually correct, it's just gonna be very, very fun." In any other instance, Deen's criteria for a good working relationship, i.e. in this case tabloid rumors of career-threatening substance abuse, might be somewhat inappropriate, but since he's part of a Bret Easton Ellis movie about the pitfalls of Hollywood success, he probably realizes that Lindz will only help him get into character.

  • The Florida strip club where enduring American tragedy Nadya Suleman was going to go topless is threatening to sue the mother of the next children's crusade if she refuses to perform. Suleman and her boobs had agreed to a four-night appearance at T's Lounge in West Palm Beach until the club's employees called her "a little crazy" on the old talkie-box. Suleman's rep said that she won't be stepping into a club whose employees "defamed" her, because it'd be totally awkward and probably a little life-threatening. [TMZ]
  • In news of less marginal celebrities, Snooki and JWOWW have launched their eponymous spin-off show.

  • Kevin Costner won a multi-million dollar case brought against him by born-again-Baldwin Stephen Baldwin because Kevin Costner is a winner and Stephen Baldwin is Barney Rubble. A Louisiana jury deliberated for two hours before rejecting Baldwin's claim that he would have made $17 million if he hadn't foolishly sold his shares in Costner's company Ocean Therapy Solutions before BP put a deposit of some Gulf clean-up equipment.

  • Jenny McCarthy told Wendy Williams that she accidentally sent her 10-year-old son's dentist a naked picture of herself, probably because dental anxiety makes people do crazy things. [NYDN]
