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

1. Everybody relax: Angie Kent says she definitely picks a suitor on The Bachelorette.

Even though it’s been a whole year since the Honey Badger debacle and our latest Bachelor, Matt Agnew, actually did pick a winner, we still have a bit of trust issues when it comes to The Bachelor franchise.

And we need to know if our new Bachelorette Angie Kent picks a suitor or if we, as a nation, should starting preparing ourselves for inevitable heartbreak.

But now we finally have our answer.

Angie played coy when Ok! Magazine asked if she picked a final winner but she said she’s “very, very happy”. But we’re 100% sure that means she’s found someone.

“I’m totally glad I did it. I’ve learnt so much about myself,” she said.

The 29-year-old Gogglebox star also revealed that former Bachelorette, Georgia Love, gave her a few tips before starting on the show.

“Georgia Love gave me her number and we had a two-hour talk. She was very honest and had the best advice. She said to me, ‘Just think outside of the Bachie bubble, who’s gonna be there when Angie’s just Angie and not the Bachelorette anymore?’ and I thought of that a lot.”

In the end, Angie followed in Georgia’s footsteps and didn’t propose to the winner.

“I’m not into it [women proposing to men]. I’ve never planned a wedding, even though a lot of girls do when they’re younger.”

“I’ve planned my funeral, which is a bit weird,”she told the publication.

So there we have it, we can all rest easy knowing Angie does indeed choose someone.

And we are so excited to watch it all begin when the The Bachelorette airs next Wednesday.

2. “Co-parenting is a massive challenge.” Cass Thorburn’s struggle to raise kids with her ex has women everywhere saying ‘same’.

Three years on from her split from Karl Stefanovic, Cassandra Thorburn has opened up about the struggle of co-parenting her three children with the ex-Today show host.

Speaking on The Juggling Act podcast, the journalist shared that co-parenting has been a “massive struggle”.

"Co-parenting I think is a massive challenge. Even if there’s an amicable agreement between the parties, it still becomes hard," she told podcast hosts Sarah Harris and Melissa Wilson.

"You’re leading separate lives, you’re no longer in a co-environment. So co-parenting… that’s a big word," she added.

"There obviously is a way to navigate it. I don't think there's a textbook of instructions in point form [where] you can guarantee you're going to get that end result."

Cass and Karl have three children together – 20-year-old Jackson, 14-year-old Ava and 12-year-old River.

3. "When Sandra asks you to do something, you do it." The request from Sandra Sully that Andy Lee just couldn't refuse.

The Logies after-party back in June was filled with celebrity antics as always, but Australian film star, Stephen Curry, has revealed Sandra Sully's request for him and Andy Lee that left a literal mark.

“I was at a table next to Andy at the Logies and Sandra Sully came up to us,” Curry told news.com.au.

“She decided she’d wait until about 10.30pm when we might have had a little bit of Dutch courage in us... and said, ‘Right, you two, I’m on the board at Hockey Australia and I think you boys are going to come and help me do something."

The pair, who were both "very keen" on their hockey agreed because "when Sandra Sully asks you to do something, you do it." Obviously.

It didn't take long before Curry was regretting his decision though, not realising Andy Lee's great hockey skills which landed him two broken ribs.

“After this, I have realised that I will never put the pads on again and it’s for very, very good reasons," he said.

“I blame Sandra Sully, really. You could say it’s Andy Lee’s fault, you could probably say it’s my fault. Admittedly, it might just be that I’m a 43-year-old man who needs to pull his head in. I do feel like somebody owes me, though."

4. Kylie Jenner was apparently seen visiting her ex Tyga the day she broke up with Travis Scott.

While rumours are still swirling about Kylie Jenner's and Travis Scott's break up, Kylie has supposedly been seen visiting her ex Tyga.

Kylie was spotted visiting Tyga’s recording studio at the Sunset Marquis Hotel, with her friends Anastasia ‘Stassi’ Karanikolaou and Kelsey Calemine.

She was later seen leaving the studio at 3am, at the same time as Tyga.

Tyga and Kylie broke up in 2017 after they reportedly started dating in 2014.

TMZ claims an inside source told the publication that Kylie and Travis have officially broken up, which is why Travis was absent at Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s wedding over the weekend.

While we're still unsure if the rumours are true or not, we can all agree that rocking up to see your ex is a pretty bold move either way.

5. Twerking, flowers and A LOT of hair: Our first look at The Bachelorette 2019 contestants.

For the last two weeks, we’ve forgotten that reality TV is usually used to show good looking people trying to find Instagram followers and maybe also love ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ and instead enjoyed it being utilised to show a dancing and singing prawn.

It’s been fun, but the Insta models are back and we must pay attention.

The 2019 season of The Bachelorette begins next week featuring ex-Goggleboxer Angie Kent and a few dozen men who’ve taken a break from the gym, their Instagrams and dog parks to spend time in the mansion.

Before today, the only man we’d had a glimpse of was… Angie’s brother. Yep, Angie’s younger brother Brad is going undercover in the mansion to sort out the lads from the future husbands.

So that’s cool. But now we’ve been introduced to two of the real suitors and they’re really something.

Apparently their names are Ciarran and Timm with two ms, which both seem made-up and unnecessary, so we hereby only refer to them by their descriptive names: Balayage Tarzan and Lucius Powers (when you see it…).

For a look at the first two contestants, read our earlier article here.
