Fans may have eaten up the Spice Girls' reunions in 2008 and 2012, but one Spice Girl did not.

Victoria Beckham, better known to '90s girl-power adherents as Posh Spice, recently revealed to Vogue Paris that her feelings going into the group's Return of the Spice Girls tour weren't as spirited as she'd expected.

"I realized it was finished for good in 2008, when we reformed for our reunion tour," Beckham said of the group. "It should have been the best moment of my life, but I just wanted to be elsewhere. It wasn't a lack of respect for the girls or the audience, but the passion just wasn't there. By contrast, in my new career, the passion grows every year. I still want more."

Beckham's comments may shine a light on the potential reunion Mel B. teased earlier this year. During an appearance on "Ellen," Scary Spice said she hoped to assemble the quintet "in the next year or two, when everyone's cleared their diary a little bit." She even agreed to stage the reunion on "Ellen."

"I did actually have a conversation with Geri [Halliwell, a.k.a. Ginger Spice] a couple of days ago saying wouldn't it be cool to do a Vegas spot," Mel B. told Ross Matthews last week. "I already had my show in Vegas. I am championing them to get back together by hook or by crook."

If that comes to fruition -- and it seems like Beckham could create an impasse -- it would serve as a follow-up to the ladies' 2012 performance at the closing ceremony of the London Olympic Games. Their set lasted less than five minutes, but hey, a reunion's a reunion, right?

Maybe the show can go on without Posh Spice. What do you think? Watch the group's recent performances, then chime in below in the comments.
