The Spill: Wednesday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. MAFS’ Amanda and Tash just gave an interview and uh… there’s absolutely no way they’re still together.

Last night, the nation fell in love with newlyweds Amanda and Tash on Married At First Sight. And for a few minutes our faith in reality TV romance, and most importantly the experts, was starting to be restored.

But that all changed today when Tash told NW magazine that she and Amanda are “so incompatible”.

“I’m quite quirky and edgy, and I’ll say things, then she doesn’t know what to do with me,” said Tash “She’s got a dad sense of humour and it’s dorky. Amanda can be very controlling too.”


Amanda also didn’t have anything too positive to say about her new bride.

“As soon as the cameras stop rolling, Tash doesn’t want to hang out with me. She doesn’t even want to watch a movie together – nothing! I can’t help thinking, ‘This is f**ked!’”

We did it ????????????️‍???? #MAFS

A post shared by Amanda (@amanda.m.micallef) on

And just in case we needed more evidence the couple won’t be making it to the end, Amanda previously shared a now-deleted Instagram post where she appears to call out Tash and her bridesmaids.

“Who you are and how you hold yourself through the bad times is what defines your character. Anyone can have an entourage of false followers to help mask your s**tty personality, but who you are alone says it all,” Amanda wrote on Instagram last year when the show was still being filmed.

Now it’s not clear that Amanda was speaking about Tash, but she did include a gif of Heidi Latcham from last season of MAFS, which could be a reference to the show.


Hopefully, we find out more when Married At Frist Sight returns tonight at 7.30 pm on Channel Nine.

Listen to Mamamia’s daily entertainment podcast, The Spill, where hosts Laura Brodnik and Kee Reece chat about Thomas Markle’s tell-all interview.  Post continues after podcast. 

2. “I was taken down by the world.” Jessica Simpson was body-shamed at size 8 and we’re absolutely ropable.

Back in 2009, singer Jessica Simpson became the victim of body-shaming, after pictures of her performing at Radio 99.9 Kiss Country’s annual Chili Cook Off went viral online.

“This picture that circulated and went worldwide broke my heart. Not the picture necessarily, but the caption. Like, all the captions. It was just viral,” the 39-year-old recently said on the Today show.

“I was taken down by the world.”

In her new memoir Open Book, Simpson shared how she felt “devastated and confused” by the comments made about her body.

At the time, Simpson was a size 8 and worried about how her then-boyfriend Tony Romo, would react.

“It was awful, but the worst part was this: my very first thought was not my pain at becoming a joke or everyone laughing at me. No, it was, ‘Oh no, I feel so bad that Tony has to be with the fat girl,’” Simpson wrote.


During her interview on the Today show, Simspon explained how the criticism she received about her body didn’t help her issues with alcohol.

“I definitely would drink. I’m like, ‘I need to’… when you hear somebody say that they need to that’s not a good sign,” she said on the show.

Mamamia would like to point out the obvious – no body-shaming is ever acceptable. Period. Bodies of all sizes deserve respect, love and care, and the fact that some drongos responded like… well, drongos, to an image of Jessica Simpson is not okay.

3. Justin Bieber just opened up about his substance abuse addiction in his new documentary series.

Justin Bieber has opened up about his struggle with addiction in his new Youtube Originals docuseries, Seasons, sharing that he often felt like he was “dying”.

The 25-year-old singer said it once got so bad, security had to check on him throughout the night to ensure he was still alive.

“My security would come into my room at night to check my pulse,” he said.

“People don’t know how serious it got. It was legit crazy, scary. I was waking up in the morning and the first thing I was doing was popping pills and smoking a blunt and starting my day.”

New episode out. Episode 3 #JustinBieberSeasons

A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

Bieber explained that he ended up quitting drugs as he was scared for his life.


“I know ultimately being the best me is going to help me be the best husband, the best father, the best friend I can possibly be,” he said.

“And for all the fans that want to enjoy the music that I make. I can’t do it if I’m not healthy, and I haven’t been healthy for a long time.”

4. Madonna offered up her NYC apartment to Harry and Meghan because ‘Canada is boring’ and woah, that’s a bit much.

Not only is Madonna a true musical icon, but she also likes to help out her friends. This time, it’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

In a bizarre video pre-concert, Madonna insisted that Harry and Meghan stay at her New York City apartment instead of “boring” Canada, as she puts it.

Uploading the video to her Instagram yesterday, she sat at her makeup table explaining all the reasons why her place trumps both England and Canada while preparing for her concert at the London Palladium.

She said, “Don’t run off to Canada, it’s so boring there. I’ll let them sublet my apartment on Central Park West.

“It’s two-bedroom, it’s got the best view of Manhattan. Incredible balcony.

“It’s a winner, it’s not even a deal-breaker. Buckingham Palace has nothing on CPW. Just a bunch of guys in woolly hats.”

Considering both Harry and Meghan publically stated that they chose Canada because it was away from the media, we assume they will politely decline… but here’s hoping.


5. We just found out exactly what Kylie Jenner eats in a day and WHY DO I CARE SO MUCH.

When we left the house this morning, after snoozing five alarms and dousing our heads in a can of dry shampoo, we expected today to be just like any other.

But then… we saw how much Kylie Jenner loves bone broth. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Kylie shared what she eats in a day in a video for Harper’s Bazaar and it’s really all we can think about.

Why? Dunno. Do we have actual work to be doing? Sure. But seriously, guys, she eats (drinks?) so much freaking bone broth.

Talking through her daily food diary, Kylie says she starts her day with bone broth, mixed with lavender and lemon, which sounds… horrendous, OR, a cup of fresh celery juice.

Both are objectively terrible ways to start a day, especially because Kylie says her two-year-old Stormi enjoys foods like blueberries, turkey bacon and BAGELS, a top tier food no matter the meal.

Kylie gets her caffeine fix from a peach tea or vanilla iced latte with oat milk, although she’s trying to cut down. We say the same thing every day but we’re definitely lying.
