What exactly is her gain?
And what all did she said that made her look like a victim. As far as i remember she always said she loves being Spice Girls, how much they support each other etc ... she said she has eating disorder because of he stress, !but i do not remember her blaming anyone.

Mel C's gain is that she is attempting to explain why she doesn't want to go back into the Spice Girls. She knows many were disappointed she dropped out of the reunion, having teased it a number of times herself and is trying to explain it away any way she can in order to flog a few more copies of her solo album.

It's as simple as that really - dropping out meant much more exposure for her album than it would have otherwise got. She's in the news every few days now for the last few months because she's talking about the group.

Sorry I agree she's pretty full of it. This Little Mix thing...I know it's been blown out of proportion a bit but she literally done a shoot pretty much in udnerwear, slated them for wearing raunchy clothes then posted a naked instagram. She's always been speak before you think.

Her gain is headlines. Talking about the group which she has 'totally 100% moved on' from is the only thing which gets her attention.

Something about the Spice Girls' movie Spiceworld ended their momentum in the USA back in 1999-2000...

The lack of music being releasing and a key member leaving probably didn't help either…

I remember when their song Holler was released maybe in 2000, I was so young and innocent and that song made me survive that year. Ahhhh...1999-2000 was another phenomenal time in music as was 1989...

Not STEPS doing a better job at celebrating their anniversary and doing something FOR THE FANS better than the almighty Spice brand.
Don't get me wrong I'm a huge fan but since their reunion it's becoming more and more obvious that the almighty dollar drives most of the ladies, not that it's a bad thing, but it definitely sours some of the goodwill and memories I have for them.
Before I get pounced on no I don't expect the other 2 to return to the fold just because I want them to and Geri's pregnancy really threw a spanner in the works for G.E.M but an acknowledgement or something would be nice to give back something to the fans that have given you the life you're accustomed to.
I'm willing to be proven wrong but I don't see any new Spice work coming to fruition.
Happy endings are just stories that haven't finished yet...

Too many egos in the Spice Girls, but understandably as they each had post-Spice careers (some obviously more successful than others) whereas no member of Steps has anything else going on for them so it's easier to reunite

Yeh except you know make new music the fans want and do an arena tour to support it.
Anyways the rumoured Hyde Park show seem to have been a pipe dream and the G.E.M project gone silent and both Mel C and Victoria have nixed again reunion rumors in the past couple of days...

Mel C
Mel C revealed she wouldn't feel comfortable reuniting unless all her former bandmates were on board.

Melanie Chisholm won't take part in a Spice Girls reunion unless all five Spices are on board.
The singer, along with Victoria Beckham, has ruled out taking part in the celebrations for the band's 20th anniversary of the release of their first single Wannabe. 
When quizzed by host Davina McCall on Britain's The Nightly Show, Chisholm revealed she wouldn't feel comfortable reuniting unless all her former bandmates - Geri Horner, Mel Brown, Emma Bunton and Beckham - were on board. 

"That's where I'm at right now. In fact, that's where myself and Victoria are right now," she explained. "Everybody knows what an amazing thing she's done in the world of fashion.
READ MORE:

"I kinda feel like it's not really doing the band justice going out as a four-piece. Whoever is missing - it doesn't matter! For me, Spice Girls - it's like a jigsaw puzzle. It's not the same. It's different for other bands. Look at Take That: they're going out as a three-piece, I love the boys. 
"With the Spice Girls, everything about us is the individuality and what we created together."

And Chisholm admitted it would be hard to top the Spice Girls' performance at the closing ceremony at the Olympic Games in London back in 2012. 
Ad Feedback

"It was the best thing ever. In my history of the Spice Girls, that's my favourite thing," she beamed. "It was incredible."
Victoria
We already know that Victoria Beckham isn't up for taking part in the Spice Girls reunion, but now it looks like there won't be one happening at all.
Speaking on The Today Show Victoria said: "There won't be a reunion because I think that when we performed at the Olympics, that was so great and that was us celebrating everything that we'd achieved."
This makes us think that the GEM (that's Geri, Emma and Mel B) reunion may have been called off, after one of their songs leaked and Geri announced her second pregnancy.

Of course, you could say that Victoria is referring to a five-piece reunion and/or is so busy with her fashion stuff she has no idea that GEM is/was a thing, but she did add the following:
"I still talk to all the other girls. We're still very close, but I think you need to know when it's time to actually say 'that was great, we achieved a lot' and everybody moves on.
"But I'll always be Posh."

Victoria did have a mini-Spice Girls reunion on stage on New Year's Eve, as she joined fellow non-GEM-committer Mel C to perform their classic hit '2 Become 1'.
Speaking of Mel C, she reiterated that she's not up for a reunion either.
Meanwhile, Mel B is still very much up for it but is actually really busy all throughout 2017.
So just Emma then?

Happy endings are just stories that haven't finished yet...

Yeah a reunion is happening for a while, if ever.

I would love for a performance but I don't mind that they want to really end everything on a high note. I mean you can get any better than an olympic performance.

Mel B Files for Divorce From Stephen Belafonte After Nearly 10 Years of Marriage

Mel B (real name Melanie Brown) cited "irreconcilable differences" for the breakup and is asking the court to terminate spousal support to Stephen.
