Emma Bunton, better known as "Baby Spice" from the Spice Girls, came in today to promote her new solo album, "Free Me," in stores now. Howard started asking her questions about the Spice Girls.
Like was she mad that they broke up because they were making so much money? Emma said she wasn't that upset because she always wanted to her own career anyway. Howard asked if she was bitter towards Geri Halliwell because she was the one rumored to have broken the band up, but Emma said she wasn't upset and didn't blame anyone for their break up. Howard was looking at pictures of her from the new CD liner notes and kept saying how smoking hot she looked in them. Artie thought they should have called her "Ass Spice" instead.
Howard wanted to know why the one black Spice Girl was called "Scary Spice." Howard said that he thought it sounded racist to him, like white people should be scared of the black Spice Girl. Emma said that wasn't the case at all and said that a magazine had named them. She said she thinks that Scary Spice got her name because she's so confident it kind of scares people. Artie kept making jokes about her racist spice girl name by listing other names they probably rejected first, like "Criminal Spice" or "Car Jacker Spice".
Howard got her to reveal that she lost her virginity at 16 but she wouldn't say when she started puberty. She said she also never had a lesbian experience and never fooled around with any of the other Spice Girls. Emma said she did keep in touch with a lot of the Spice Girls though and was just visiting with Victoria and David Beckham. Victoria was Posh Spice in the group.
Newspapers have reported that David Beckham was caught cheating on Victoria, so Howard asked if Emma ever brings that up when she's around them? Emma said that she talks to Victoria a lot but wouldn't comment if they ever talked about David cheating on her. Emma seemed to get a little uncomfortable with all the sex and Beckham talk and told Howard that he was being rude. Howard said it was just his way of flirting with her. Howard asked Emma if she would break up with her boyfriend if she found out he was cheating on her? Emma said she would so Howard asked if that was the advice she gave Victoria? Emma didn't answer.
