On last week's episode of Hulu's The KardashiansKim Kardashian shared that during her teenage years, she once performed as Victoria Beckham, AKA Posh Spice, during a talent show (Can we get a video of that, Kris Jenner?). And it just so happens that Geri Halliwell-Horner is making news these days with the release of her new book, Rosie Frost and the Falcon Queen, as well as for her tenure in the famed girl group. Speaking to E!, Halliwell-Horner offered up some very cute Spicy nicknames she'd give to Kim K. — and they're as empowering as you'd hope for a mom, mogul, and reality royalty.

"She deserves something really good," Halliwell-Horner told E! News. "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!"

Halliwell-Horner also spoke about how proud she is of Kim for embracing her body and also being a successful — and inspiring — businesswoman.

"She's amazing," Geri added. "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."

Kim also dropped another fun Spice Girls fact this week in addition to sharing her talent show role. 

"I was a Spice Girl for my talent show," she said to her son Saint on Oct. 19's episode of The Kardashians. "I was Victoria. I was Posh, duh."

She shared that when she'd met Mel C., who fans know as Sporty Spice, she offered her a spot in the lineup since Victoria Beckham had broken hearts everywhere when she said that she wouldn't be joining the group if it ever went on tour again.

"Sporty Spice wrote a book and signed it inside and she sent it to me saying that they're going on tour and they need a Posh and would I be the Posh?" she added. "I mean, I'm sure she was joking. But like, when I was in high school, would I ever have thought that this was, like, a thing? I'm just, like, a girl from high school who lived the Spice Girls and now they're asking me?"
