It seems that Victoria Beckham was thisclose to NOT participating in the Spice Girls reunion show at the epic musical event that was the London 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony, because she is just SUCH a busy mamma-fashionista bee!
"The lone holdout during the entire negotiation process leading up to the Games had been Victoria. Victoria said her schedule just wouldn't permit it because of commitments with her fashion line and her duties of being a mother, including daughter, Harper, who just turned one year old. The ladies decided they would perform without Victoria because they felt it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to play for a worldwide audience at the Olympics. Once Victoria learned of their plans she was able to juggle her schedule to allow her to perform too."
Awww was someone feeling a little left out? And perhaps a leettle over-confident?
Ah well, we're just glad Mrs. David Beckham DID deign to grace the mother effing OLYMPICS with her spindly self, otherwise that black-cab craaaay performance wouldn't have packed quite the same nostalgia-inducing punch!
