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

1. Apparently The Bachelorette’s Angie and Carlin aren’t working out, and it must be true because ‘sources’ say so.

Look, we are all still shocked that The Bachelor‘s Matt and Chelsie recently split, but that doesn’t mean love is dead – and it certainly doesn’t mean all Bachie couples are doomed.

Alas, rumours have been going around that Angie Kent and Carlin Sterritt have been struggling to keep their relationship gong since filming ended on The Bachelorette.

A ‘source’ apparently told NW magazine that Angie and Carlin have found it a bit tricky to keep their relationship going post-show.

“They’re all smiles now, doing press, but the truth is that they’ve really been struggling to make things work,” the source supposedly told the publication.

“Angie is absolutely heartbroken that it’s not panning out.

“She and Carlin just had too many obstacles in their way. They also didn’t see eye to eye on a lot of the important stuff. They were butting heads over every little thing!”

While it’s not known whether the rumours are true or not, we can all agree these anonymous ‘sources’ seem somewhat… questionable.

WARNING FIRST CORNY COUPLE POST ALERT! I recently read from one of my favorite modern day poets @yung_pueblo ‘make sure the walls you build to protect yourself do not become your prison’ I built up some big ol walls over the years. I have my reasons. We all do. The reality is none of us are going to be a walk in the park to be with. We’ve all suffered or are suffering from something. That’s life. So when you meet someone willing to see past these walls and committed to understanding you and want to grow with you…. don’t let past conditioning, ego or pride get in the way. You knew. Even when I doubted you because of these walls. You were patient with me. Thank-you for fighting for us and knowing what we have was real and pure from the very beginning. You are exactly what I wanted and more coming into this. I love you my Noh Noh @carlinsterritt ???? Finally, thank-you for coming on this adventure with us. I can’t even begin to put into words how grateful I am for the people who put their heart soul into this show. Everyone works so incredibly hard. My dream team. You know who you are. Thank-you. The End….Fairytale style. The beginning of real life! x @bacheloretteau #bacheloretteau

Recently, Angie told Mamamia that she and Carlin are in a happy relationship and they aren’t just saying together because they are contractually obliged to.

“I would never in a million years sign a contract that would make me stay with someone and be in a relationship,” Angie told Mamamia’s The Spill podcast.

“That is not my idea of happiness. I would never do a TV show where that was the outcome. It’s all too raw and vulnerable and open.”

2. Oh. The Veronicas weighed in on will.i.am’s squabble with Qantas then promptly deleted their tweet.

2019 has not been a great year for Qantas and their celebrity clientele.

The Aussie airline is currently battling reports which claim a flight attendant racially targeted rapper and Black Eyed Peas singer, will.i.am, as well as other people of colour, while on a domestic flight from Brisbane to Sydney.

The 44-year-old said he was wearing noise-cancelling headphones when he was initially asked by the attendant to put his laptop away. While he initially didn’t hear her due to his headphones, he complied with her request once he was aware of the issue. Despite this, he was questioned by five police officers upon arrival but was released thanks to the testimony of his fellow passengers.

Since sharing his story on Twitter, will.i.am’s tweets have garnered international attention. Closer to home, Lisa and Jessica Origliasso of The Veronicas also weighed in on the situation.

In a now-deleted tweet they wrote:

“We support Will.i.am,” they tweeted.

“Sadly this female flight attendant was one of two attendants involved in our incident with Qantas.

“We feel sickened she was given no reprisal and has instead continued to abuse her position, discriminate, and misuse the full force and intimidation of the Australian Federal Police to her agenda.

“In this case to menace Will.i.am and other POC [people of colour] on this flight.”

They finished their message by telling Qantas’ CEO that “you need to do better”.

You might recall the singers also had a run-in with the airline in September of this year, in which they were asked to leave the aircraft over an overhead baggage storage issue. The confrontation resulted in the twins being accompanied off the aircraft by Australian Federal Police.

In a recent interview with the Herald Sun, Lisa called the experience intimidating and bizarre.

“Yeah, it was intimidating and we were very confused, we weren’t getting any answers and it did feel quite scary. No one was communicating with us,” she said.

“We got approached once (by Qantas staff) and then sat there for 15 or 20 minutes while they kept making overhead announcements saying there was a security risk on the flight and they had called the AFP. And we’re thinking ‘What?’”

Responding to the current controversy involving will.i.am, however, Qantas maintain the incident was a misunderstanding. According to news.com.au, the airline have sent a memo to staff, in which they reject all claims of racism, further stating that they've asked the rapper to retract this statement.

“The tweets claimed poor treatment from crew and discrimination on the basis of race. We replied that there appeared to be a misunderstanding on-board that was exacerbated by the fact will.i.am was wearing noise-cancelling headphones,” the memo apparently read.

“We rejected claims of racism and have since asked will.i.am for a retraction of that claim. We fully support our crew and the great work they do ensuring safety of all those on-board.”

3. "Girls just don’t even say hello." The Bachelorette's Timm admits he's been getting a lot of racy DMs on Instagram.

Although The Bachelorette fan-favourite Timm Hanly didn't win Angie Kent's heart in last Thursday's finale, it appears he is having no trouble with women - as apparently plenty are sliding into his Instagram DMs.

Appearing on the Kyle and Jackie O show, Timm admitted that his inbox has been "blowing up" with unsolicited nude pictures.

Well.

"Girls just don’t even say hello, it’s just ‘bang’ nude, straight up," he said.

In true Timm style, he seemed rather unphased by the unusual photos.

"I just send the fire emoji, don't even talk, just, bang, fire emoji.

4. MAFS' Melissa Lucarelli just shared her thoughts about not being invited to Cam and Jules' wedding.

Married at First Sight star Melissa Lucarelli has confirmed on social media that she wasn't at Cam and Jules' wedding - which she called 'the wedding event of the year'.

She also addressed rumours about why she was dumped from being a bridesmaid. 

In an Instagram story posted on Sunday afternoon, she confirmed that she was uninvited to the pair's televised wedding.

"As for why, I'm honestly not sure... she kept changing her reasons and none of them made sense," she said.

"It really all just came out of the blue and I didn't see it coming at all. Of course you're allowed to change your mind about who you want as a bridesmaid, but I just feel like the way it was done was really cold and rather hurtful."

Yes the rumours are true. Yes Jules dumped me as a bridesmaid. No I wasn’t at the wedding event of the year. ????

"In this case I was asked to be a bridesmaid in a public way, and also that the wedding had been sold to Channel 9 so was going to get televised, which is obviously a very public way of having a wedding, so I guess it just makes the public dumping of you as a bridesmaid for no reason that little bit more embarrassing, hurtful, confusing...

"I wish I was never asked to be a bridesmaid in the first place so I wasn't in this position."

5. 'She doesn't know why.' Everything we know about The Bachelor's Matt and Chelsie's breakup.

Uh oh.

We got so caught up in Angie Kent’s search for love on The Bachelorette we completely forgot about the astrophysicist we watched say “sexual chemistry” 2000 times during this year’s Bachelor season.

Bachie and space fan Matt Agnew ended up choosing chemical engineer Chelsie McLeod to be his girlfriend and that was nice. Then… nothing really happened, until Sunday, when they announced their split on Instagram.

“Chels and I have made some beautiful memories together that I’ll always cherish, and I wish her nothing but the absolute best,” Matt wrote.

“However, it’s with a heavy heart that I write this. For Chels and me, our relationship hasn’t translated from filming to the real, every day world as we had hoped.

The 31-year-old concluded his statement saying, “It’s no one’s fault, it’s just life.”

Chelsie also shared a post on Instagram thanking her followers for their support and kind words “over what was an incredibly exciting, rewarding, challenging, and emotional journey”.

The pair, both from Melbourne, had been secretly together since May when filming for The Bachelor finished and well… I have spent the morning living out my private investigator dreams and I have gossip, pls.

Was Chelsie blindsided by the breakup?

Remember Rachael? She was the one who was booted by Matt for having a ‘plan B’ and then, as she left, yelled “F*cking dogs”.

It was glorious and we love her for it, etc. etc. etc.

ANYWAY, she’s continued to be a god damn legend and has spent the 24 hours since Matt and Chelsie announced their split spilling some hot tea in the comments.
