Solo And Famous

Geri Halliwell

geri-halliwellNewly single Geri Halliwell has been embracing her solo status in a big way, hanging out with fellow newly single Guy Ritchie at a recent movie premiere (there is pictured at it with her boobs hanging out). But fear not, the artist formerly known as Ginger Spice is not about to hook up with the former Mr Madonna any day soon. No, she has, in fact, imposed a year long man ban on herself after splitting from her fiance Fabrizio Politi, who she had been dating for all of three months. And if anyone can go a a man fast, it’s yo yo dieter Halliwell, who appears to be capable of giving anything up in a bid to better herself.
When news of her latest split hit the headlines, word was put out that it was Halliwell who did the dumping after waking up one morning to realise that she wasn’t the marrying kind. Indeed. You have to wonder if she is persistently in and out of short term relationships for the simple reason that she is a bit high maintenance and something of a pain in the ass.
Geraldine Estelle Halliwell was born on August 6, 1972 in Watford, Hertfordshire in the UK and after making a stab at fame as a dancer, model and presenter, she eventually hit the big time when she joined the Spice Girls in the 1990s. Ginger, Scary, Sporty, Posh and Baby burst onto the scene with their own brand of pop and girl power and became a sensation, selling millions of records worldwide. But Halliwell was never a team player as such and abandoned the group prematurely, going on to become a solo performer in her own right. Although not a very good one.
While professionally Halliwell is now known for doing a reunion tour with the Spices and for, em, penning children’s books, personally she is still famed for her fluctuating weight, love life and ability to remain in the spotlight. Like the rest of her band members, their ‘fans’ are only really interested in their private lives, a lot of which are still played out in the public arena. (Yes you Posh).
And Halliwell’s private life has always been more interesting than her working one, which was generally bland following the Spice era. After her last solo album bombed, she headed off to Los Angeles to work on unnamed projects (that’s a euphonism for doing nothing in showbiz circles – Peter Andre is at it all the time) and managed to get herself pregnant by script writer Sacha Gervasi, although she never confirmed this. Regardless of who the father was, her relationship with Gervasi didn’t last beyond her first trimester and she gave birth in London in 2006 without a man in sight. All very 21st century.
A couple of flings and one very brief enagement later and now Halliwell is single and garnering headlines again, the latter which she must be delighted about. Along with all her other documented issues and addictions, it was always obvious that publicity is one of her biggest habits of all. Please God the fact that she’s just been papped with Guy Ritchie doesn’t mean anything because no matter how much of a man diet she’s on, we reckon Halliwell wouldn’t resist bagging Madonna’s ex if she could.
