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

1. Michael has shared exactly what happened between him and Stacey after last night’s dinner party and yikes.

It didn’t take long for last night’s Married At First Sight dinner party to turn into the dramatic trash fire we secretly love. Especially after Natasha called out Stacey for cheating on her (fake) husband Michael with fellow contestant Mikey.

And now Michael has shared exactly what happened between him and Stacey after her ~alleged~ cheating scandal came to light.

Appearing on Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam & Browny earlier today, Michael shared that things ended quickly between the pair at the hotel after the dinner party.

“I said we all make mistakes, what I can live with is, I can live with the truth but I can’t live with a lie. She continued to tell me that it never happened, I go there is too much doubt for me to continue in this catastrophe so let’s just have a hug and I’ll see you later,” Michael said.

“She goes ‘I don’t need to hug you’. I was like wow okay, you can be bitter we don’t need to be anything, whatever. At the end of the day, I should be one sort of stamping my feet and saying, ‘I’m the victim, I’m the victim.'”

And just like that Michael found his happily ever after and skipped into the sunset #MAFS

Michael was also asked about his rumoured relationship with fellow MAFS bride KC. But he did a pretty good job at dodging the question.


“Everything will sort of come out there. I never cheated, know that, no one cheated in my corner of the ring,” he said.

He then diverted the conversation back to the cheating scandal, saying Mikey passed a lie detector test in flying colours.

Hopefully, we find out more about what really went down when Married At First Sight returns on Sunday at 7pm on Channel Nine.

Listen to The Spill, Mamamia’s daily entertainment podcast. In today’s episode, co-hosts Kee Reece and Laura Brodnik chat about the latest MAFS cheating scandal. Post continues below.

2. ‘She didn’t want to get involved.’ Why Vanessa didn’t attend the MAFS reunion dinner party.

Among all the chaos of last night’s dinner party, there was one bride who was noticeably missing.

According to the Daily Mail, Vanessa Romito refused to attend the reunion because she didn’t want to get involved in any of the feuds and was dreading seeing her (fake) ex-husband, Chris Nicholls, again.

Instead, Vanessa stayed in her hotel room after flying into Sydney from Perth ahead of filming on January 15.

“Vanessa had pretty much made her mind up before landing in Sydney. The producers allowed it under their duty of care,” a source supposedly told the publication.

“She made it clear she didn’t want to be in a setting as dramatic as the dinner party after the girls’ night in November, so they let her sit it out. She wasn’t a part of any integral story lines so it had no effect on the episode.”


On the other hand, Chris decided to attend the dinner party and was supposedly booked into a different hotel to keep him separated from Vanessa.

That said, Vanessa does attend the second reunion when the cast sit down with the relationship experts. So we’ll see her back on our screens next Sunday for the MAFS finale.

3. After two attempts at finding love on Bachelor in Paradise, Elora Murger is married.

The Bachelor favourite, Elora Murger has secretly married her fiancé Azriel Wratten, in an intimate ceremony on the Sunshine Coast.

The 29-year-old appeared on Matty J’s season of The Bachelor back in 2017, before searching for love on Bachelor in Paradise over two seasons in 2018, and 2019.

Elora has described her husband as “everything [she] was looking for on The Bachelor, but couldn’t find.”

“Azriel, you are truly the best thing that could have happened to me,” she wrote in an Instagram post back in October.


The pair wed at a courthouse back in January in front of just two witnesses. Speaking to the Daily Mail, Elora explained that elopements are commonplace in France, to separate the formalities of a marriage from the celebration.

“You have two weddings,” she said, which means we can be expecting the big, beautiful wedding pics after restrictions on travel and crowds have been lifted.

“We were thinking maybe Hawaii or here, but we were going to focus on getting the business on a good routine at first and then make a decision, but now it’s probably not going to happen until 2021, I guess,” she told the Daily Mail.

4. Drake has shared the very first photos of his two-year-old son Adonis Graham.

Drake has finally shared a glimpse into his family life after sharing the very first photos of his two-year-old son, Adonis Graham, on Instagram.

The 33-year-old rapper shared a series of family photos, with the pictures of Adonis being the first he’s shared since his birth back in 2017.

“When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright,” he wrote in a lengthy caption.

“Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up.”

He concluded the post with a message about his loved ones, saying: “I love and miss my beautiful family and friend and I cannot wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite.”

Oh, and Adonis is just SO CUTE.

5. A pub crawl and a gun scare: What we didn’t see during the MAFS reunion dinner party.

We know what you’re thinking – the Married at First Sight reunion dinner party last night was wild. And oh yes, it was madness.

KC and Drew decided to split, Ivan and Aleks are (sort of) back together, Seb and Lizzie are moving in together, and most importantly, the rumours surrounding Mikey and Stacey’s cheating scandal were finally addressed.

And yes, it looks like the pair did sleep together. On Mikey and Natasha’s wedding anniversary.

But that is not what we’re here to discuss.

There are a few things that happened before and after the filming of the reunion episode that might actually be wilder than the episode itself. Things that all occurred off-camera, but luckily for us, were documented and recently made public.

The pub crawl.

First off, there was a secret cast reunion.

On January 14, the cast of MAFS touched down in Sydney to prepare for the filming of the final dinner party the following day. And instead of having a singular vino and an early night, they decided to go on a pub crawl instead.

The night began with Natasha Spencer and Chris Nicholls meeting up with Hayley Vernon at her hotel room in Surry Hills, Sydney, for some pre-drinks. Before they joined cast members Steve Burley, Josh Pihlak and Drew Brauer at a pub nearby.

A source told the Daily Mail, “Producers went to great effort and expense to split the cast into separate hotels to avoid this happening, but none of them cared. It was a sh*t show behind the scenes. Once again, the best drama was off-camera”.

We can only guess what that lot got up to.
