1. Months after revealing her AFL-playing fiancé cheated on her, Abby Gilmore has had the last laugh.

Nearly five months ago, blogger, mum-of-two and former WAG Abby Gilmore gave an explosive interview with the Herald Sun, detailing the depths of her fiance’s infidelity and alleged gambling addiction.

In the interview, Gilmore recalled the moment she found out her fiance – Essendon footballer Jake Stringer – had been consistently cheating on her while pregnant.

“I was just chilling with [Jake’s teammate and Abby’s best friend Jason Johannisen] when I got this message and just went pale,” Gilmore said, explaining the message was from a 17-year-old schoolgirl who alleged she had been sleeping with Stringer.

“I showed Jason. We both had no idea.”

After calling the schoolgirl, Gilmore learned the pair had been sleeping together for more than four months.

Now, some five months after the interview and a year and a half after that message was sent, Gilmore has been announced as a regular columnist for the publication that broke the defining story of her life.

Because, as she wrote on Instagram on Saturday, the "universe works in funny ways".

Smiling, Foxx promptly took his headphones off, walking out of the camera's view:

Jennifer Lawrence is pretty relaxed about getting her gear off at work these days. While she has conceded to Page Six that she used to have "fear and insecurity" about on-screen nudity, the 27-year-old says it's no longer a factor in her decision about a role.

Speaking to the tabloid, the actor said her new-found confidence was in full-swing on the set of her upcoming thriller, Red Sparrow.

“Everybody made me feel so comfortable that I probably at a certain point started making everybody else uncomfortable,” Lawrence explained. “Because I’d be like, ‘I don’t want the robe. I’m hot. I’m eating.’ Everybody’s like, ‘She needs to cover up.’”

I'm... eating? Let's hope it wasn't hot.
