'Steps Reunion': Watch Episode 1

Alright, this is my third damn post about the first episode of Steps Reunion, which aired on Sky Living in the UK last week. But someone finally uploaded the whole thing to YouTube, so, as Steps #1 stan in the US for the past 14 years, I felt obligated to post this hot class.

If you never knew any of the behind the scenes drama behind the band — H was boinking their manager! The other girls had it out for Claire because she got all the solos! Britney Spears flew H around on her jet while the others had to take the bus during their US tour in '99! Lee was never given solos (though, in my mind, his Buzz co-write "Turn Around" remains their best non-single to this day)! — then you're in for total drama.

There are a lot of tears shed in this first part. And one thing glaringly sticks out: both H and Claire spend the entire time in their one-on-one interviews saying they wanted out of the band to have "normal lives" and "anonymity" again, yet seem to be in total denial over the whole bit where — oh, right — they launched their failed duo act immediately after leaving Steps.

I just can't wait till next week when they all kick H in the nuts.

    I've always thought H was obnoxious and annoying ten years ago, and its clear nothing has changed.

    I almost lost it when he kept saying he was "cute"...uh, no he's not. He's U-G-L-Y. He had nasty bleached blond muppet hair, an oddly shapped body, and a really obnoxious voice, hence why he was having a relationship with their nasty looking 50 year old manager. And his logic he's using to justify their split is retarded, to put it nicely

    Ugh - stepping off my soapbox now. Just chuck H out of the group and perform as a four piece - the world will be a better place.

    who knew being in a manufactured pop band could be so sh*tty?

    the first ep confirmed all my greatest fears about what we thought about steps was soooo not the reality....yet at the same time gave me SUCH a warm fuzzy feeling to see them all together again.

    here's hoping if it doesn't actually lead to a formal recording/touring reunion that they can at least put all the hard feelings to rest and legitimately move on with their lives.

    Adolfo, I think you mean they replaced "Words Are Not Enough," which was the double A-side with "I Know Him So Well"...?

    "Words Are Not Enough" was their official last single. I raised an eyebrow at its exclusion, until I saw an interview (I think the one you posted the link to) where Lisa says they didn't want to do the exact same collection as 'Gold.'

    I am so thrilled Steps have such wonderful things being said about them across America as well as Australia. This reality show is my everything now and that cover of Dancing Queen is the song of the year without even hearing it.

    rob

    comparing the tracklisting for gold and ultimate collection they have replaced 3 tracks (baby don't dance, only in my dreams, and, criminally, words are not enough)
    with you'll be sorry, i know him so well and dancinq queen.

    but you already knew that, didn't you :-)

    seriously, shame about words are not enough.....

    thanks for posting ep 2!

    Here, I do not really imagine it is likely to have effect.
