Spice Girls sing at Olympics. Kids enjoy HollyRod event.

The Spice Girls did indeed reunite to perform in the Olympics closing ceremonies on Sunday. They looked much more sophisticated than they did in the 1990s. Gone, for instance, were Emma “Baby” Bunton’s pigtails. Victoria “Posh” Beckham wore a short-in-front black dress, Gerri “Ginger” Halliwell a red dress with Union Jack detailing, Melanie “Sporty” Chisholm a white pants outfit and Melanie “Scary” Brown a bedazzled catsuit.

Stars from the worlds of sports, film and television flocked to Culver City Studios on Sunday for the annual “My Brother Charlie” Family Fun Festival fundraiser for the HollyRod Foundation. The foundation, established by former quarterback Rodney Peete and his wife, actress Holly Robinson Peete, provides support to families affected by autism or Parkinson’s disease. Trampolines, basketball hoops, a dunk tank, food booths and face painting kept kids like Rocco Reynolds, posing here with mom Jillian Barberie Reynolds, entertained. [Society News LA]
