Mel C aka Sporty Spice launched a verbal attack on her former band members from Spice Girls, in a TV interview to Orange Playlist on ITV.

The 32-year-old slammed her former mates for trying to get famous by writing autobiographies, when they are in their 20s, and said that it is outrageous to see them cashing on such literary efforts.

“It irritates me that people write biographies now, when they're in their twenties. It's just pound signs, isn't it?” the Mirror quoted her, as saying.

Sporty Spice added that her former band friends like Ginger Spice and Scary Spice did not have any hit solo numbers, and that comparatively, she had a successful single career.

"Geri released an album, which didn't do well at all, as did Mel B. And so you just get tarred with the same brush and then you become a bit of a failure as well. But I have made the best records. And I'm not joking when I say that,” Mel C said.

Mel C also revealed that she once got involved in a physical brawl with Scary Spice, and that when Geri Halliwell tried to intervene, she got punched.

And though Sporty Spice doesn’t remember the reason for the fight, she’s pretty sure that Mel B aka Scary Spice was the catalyst.

"We were drunk in LA and it got a bit pushy-shovey. Geri tried to split us up and got a punch. God knows what it was about. Mel was probably being a bitch,” she said.
