The Spice Girls seemed to leave the door open for another reunion when their tour ended in February, but Melanie Brown says that door has shut for good.
Asked whether the group would ever come together to tour again, Brown offered a quick and emphatic "No" to reporters Thursday night at the 8th Annual BMI Urban Awards in Beverly Hills, adding, "[last year's tour] was our final goodbye."
But Scary Spice still misses her bandmates – Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) – despite comments she made recently, which indicated she and the girls are "not in touch much."

Ginger Spice may look amazing these days, but she's more concerned with being a role model for her daughter than with spending her life at the gym.
"I want to have a healthy body image for Bluebell," Geri Halliwell tells the U.K.'s Glamour of her daughter, who turns 2 on May 14. "I think it's good to promote a healthy example, so whatever shape she is, she loves herself."
"I used to be an exercise freak," says the singer, who has batteld bulimia in the past. "[Now] yoga has always been a consistent, loving thing to do. I'm not into the Madonna-esque yoga-cising."

Geri Halliwell says her feud with Victoria Beckham ended with major help from some maternal bonding.
After a rift that began when Halliwell quit the Spice Girls in 1998 and continued when Posh left her off the guest list for her wedding to David Beckham, the pair speak regularly and their children are playmates, according to Britain's You Magazine.
"I have huge admiration for Victoria," says Halliwell. "She had her boys with her the whole time and she's done such a great job with them – they are all so well mannered and caring. Victoria and I are actually the biggest supporters of each other. We feel really proud of one another."

It's official! Using their song lyrics and blog, the Spice Girls bid a final farewell Wednesday to cap the conclusion of their successful reunion tour.

The letter to fans on the Spice blog was signed with love from Emma [Bunton], Geri [Halliwell], Mel B [Brown], Melanie C [Chisolm] and Victoria [Beckham] after concluding a song best summed up their feelings:
"Goodbye my friend, it's not the end ... So glad we made it, time will never ever change it ... "

Geri Halliwell flexed her goodwill muscles in Washington D.C. Thursday, as the Spice Girls reunion tour wound down.
Halliwell (a.k.a. Ginger Spice) stopped by the nation's Capitol to lobby Congress for maternal health care and AIDS relief as part of her work as a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA) – something she's been a part of for the past 10 years.
"We all are mothers or have a mother, so we need to support the mothers of the world," Halliwell, 35, told PEOPLE of her visit to Congress to "speak for people who don't have a voice."
