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

1. Apparently the Bachelorette winner was promised $100K to stay with Angie for two years and WHAT.

We’re officially down to the final six in this season of The Bachelorette, and apparently there’s a feisty rumour threatening the sanctity of reality TV romance.

And we don’t like it one bit.

As reported by Now to Love, apparently the contestants were told the winner would be given $100,000 if their relationship with Bachelorette, Angie Kent, lasted for two years, with that amount increasing if they proposed on-air.

“At the start of filming, producers told the guys if they won Angie’s heart and their relationship went the distance, they could score a huge payday,” they reported.

“They promised to pay $100,000 if the couple were together for two years and got engaged – and said they could earn even more if the proposal was on TV.

It’s unknown whether Angie was given the same spiel.

We don't mean to poo-poo speculation, but in the words of Jamie Doran (this season's stage 5 clinger), we sense a "snake in the grass". Not only was there no source (anonymous, or otherwise), Osher would obviously NEVER allow this tomfoolery to happen.

More believable, however, is the hilarious admission that the bachelors had a $2000-a-day allowance to spend on food, but apparently "furious producers" significantly cut their budget after some contestants overate their share and "blew the budget on expensive protein powders".

2. "It is devastating." MAFS' Cyrell Paule opens up about raising her child as a single mum.

Last month, Married At First Sight's Cyrell Paule – who is expecting her first child in February next year – announced her split from her Love Island boyfriend Eden Dally after seven months together.

Now, speaking to New Idea, Cyrell has opened up about the pain of welcoming her child into the world following their split.

"I was desperate for our son to have a mother and a father – a happy home, a happy life," Cyrell said.

"Now I go into this all alone. It is devastating. It is the last thing I ever wanted. Everyone thinks this was an easy decision. It really wasn't."

During the interview, Cyrell shared that she decided to end her relationship with Eden.

"It's easy to break up with someone when you are no longer in love with them. It's much harder breaking up when you are still in love with them... I do love Eden," she said.


"Honestly, I just think we wanted different things. I was happy to stay at home and focus on the baby whereas Eden still wanted to go out and do his thing."

In recent weeks, Eden has been linked to 24-year-old Instagram model Nicole Shiraz.

Although the pair have been spotted at a number of events together, both Eden and Nicole have insisted that they're only friends.

3. Oh. After her ex Jess Origliasso's engagement news, Ruby Rose posted a bunch of cryptic quotes on Instagram.

In the past week, The Veronicas' Jess Origliasso got engaged to her partner of one year, Kai Carlton.

The couple both shared the happy news on their respective Instagram accounts - including a shot of Jess' gorgeous ring.


Interestingly, only a few days after Jess's engagement announcement, her ex-girlfriend Ruby Rose also posted on Instagram and uploaded some rather cryptic quotes - and we can't help but think they're related.

The images were uploaded to her now-expired Instagram story, and all three pictures contained quotes related to love and relationships.

The Batwoman star commented, "I love this..." above a quote that stated, "We fall in love with three people in our lifetime... Each one for a specific reason."

Another one read, "A real relationship has fights. Has trust. Has faith. Has tears. Has hurt. Has sweet smiles. Has genuine laughter. Has weird, stupid, unnecessary arguments. Has patience. Has communication. Has jealousy. And most importantly, has love."

While the last one read, "When nails grow long, we cut nails not fingers. Similarly when misunderstanding grow up, cut your ego, not your relationship."

Although none specifically reference her relationship with the Aussie singer, considering the pair have had their fair amount of ups and downs in the past, the timing seems awfully close...

4. "I tried to talk her out of it." The owner of the hairdresser where Britney Spears shaved her head in 2007 has spoken about the incident.

We all remember when Britney Spears hit breaking point in 2007. But at the time, it seems she was dealing with so much more than we knew - problems that lead to her infamously shaving off her hair.

In a new documentary, Britney Spears - Breaking Point, airing on November 10, sources close to the now 37-year-old revealed that she had people close to her putting her life in danger. They were apparently accepting bribes from the paparazzi in exchange for information on the American pop star.

Specifically, telling them details of where she would be - including on the day that she lost her hair.

A post shared by Britney Spears (@britneyspears) on

Esther Tognozzi, the owner of the salon where Britney shaved her head, mentioned in the documentary that the two bodyguards accompanying Spears to the salon opened the blinds on multiple occasions, allowing paps to snap photos of the Toxic singer removing her long, blonde locks.

“We looked out and it’s a bunch of white lights flashing and somebody knocked on the door, because we always keep the door locked, saying: ‘Hey, open the door, Britney Spears wants to come in,’” Tognozzi said.

“And of course, I said: ‘What for?’ And they proceeded to come in, she sat on my chair, I said, ‘What’s up, can I help you?’ She said, ‘I want to shave my hair off.’"

Tognozzi argued against doing it and said, “‘No, you don’t,’ and she said, ‘Oh yes, I do.’”

“She had two bodyguards, supposedly keeping an eye out to make sure the paparazzi were not getting any pictures and one of them kept opening the blinds.

“I tried to talk her out of it and I said, ‘You don’t want to do that, tomorrow is a different day, you’ll feel differently tomorrow, let’s talk about it.’”


Tognozzi goes on to explain how she had to leave the room and take a phone call, only to come back and see Britney with the buzzer, shaving her head.

“By the time I came back to her she had grabbed a buzzer and she was testing to see how it was going to feel or look to buzz her hair," she recalled.

Apparently Spears understood what she had done and said after, "My mum is going to be pissed."

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

They’ve gifted us with internet-breaking images, weird tweets and the best, bizarrest baby names. But on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians earlier this month, when West criticised Kardashian for dressing ‘too sexy’, people started to question how much had changed in the relationship in those seven years.

We go back to 2003, where it all began for Kimye. Read more about their relationship in our earlier post here.
