Geri Halliwell dubs Kim Kardashian 'Smart Spice'

Geri Halliwell has dubbed Kim Kardashian "Smart Spice" after she expressed her desire to be a member of the Spice Girls.

During an interview with E! News which was released on Tuesday, the singer-turned-author gave the reality star a Spice Girls nickname.

"She deserves something really good," Geri, 51, told the outlet. "She deserves something like Inner Strength Spice. I think she's Smart Spice. She's smart. It's brilliant that you're beautiful from the outside, but also she's beautiful with a book in her back pocket. I love that. We can all be things. Good for her!"

The Wannabe hitmaker's comments come soon after Kim expressed her love for the British girl group in a recent episode of The Kardashians.

"She's amazing," Geri, formerly known as Ginger Spice, continued. "I think she's a very, very good role model. She's smart. She's really been inspiring the way she's turned that business around and also for women to celebrate your curves. I really like that about her."

During a past episode of The Kardashians, the Skims founder revealed that she had once dressed up as Victoria Beckham, A.K.A Posh Spice, for a talent show.

"I was a Spice Girl for my talent show," Kim, 43, said. "I was Victoria. I was Posh, duh."
