1. A Bachelor in Paradise intruder has slammed the Australian contestants and HEY THEY’RE OUR REALITY STARS TO CRITICISE.
Can he not?
Incoming Bachelor in Paradise intruder Daniel Maguire has stolen our greatest, most prized hobby, taking it upon himself to criticise our Australian reality stars.
Maguire, a Canadian, joins the show tonight but told The Daily Telegraph the Australian cast is “boring” and “not as racy” as his former American Bachelor alum, as if drama is a competition and we lose.
“From what I could see, most people were just friends. There was no sexual chemistry or as many hook-ups as in the US,” he said.
“To be honest a lot of these people are boring. Eden was funny, Tara has been alright, Michael has been good on TV. Keira knew how things were edited, she was cool, I had a laugh with her.
“But the rest was like watching paint dry.”
Suddenly and somehow, we a feel a surge of bitterness: Criticising reality stars is our thing. Not yours. Thanks.

2. Why the internet is losing it at this story about Meghan Markle.
Marie Claire US, this week, published a story on Meghan Markle and her single grey hair.
“Who knows if Meghan Markle is choosing to just own it, not waste the time and money on such frequent upkeep, or, just doesn’t notice because it’s ONE HAIR. But, either way, it’s nice to see she’s a regular person with a few stray grays, just like everyone else!” the piece reads.
See! Exactly like you and me.
You can imagine, of course, a piece like this wasn’t met with warmth on the internet. Instead, it went viral because of commentary like this:
3. Tom Holland shares his painfully awkward moment with Madonna.
Tom Holland, who plays the spidery hero in the latest version of the franchise, told Graham Norton a lil’ story about the time he met Madonna.
Holland told the Graham Norton Show he was introduced to Madonna at the Oscars after party earlier this year.
“An old friend of mine who’s a manager comes up to me and is like, ‘Tom! Tom! Do you know Madonna?’ And I’m like, ‘Funny enough, no.’ So, he drags me across this nightclub and introduces me to Madonna.”
The friend then tried to help Tom out by telling Madonna about his dancin’ skills (he played Billy in Billy Elliot).
“(My friend) can see me panicking and goes, ‘Madonna, Tom is an incredible dancer.’ She goes, ‘Really? That’s something I’d love to see — show me!
“So, I take her hand and drag her out onto the dance floor and as soon as I took her I realised it was a mistake.
“I start dancing with her and — there’s not much arms involved, I’m just doing a little twostep to try to warm myself up — and she’s so unimpressed… I just bailed and left. I just leave Madonna on the dance floor.”
Yep, Spider-Man abandoned Madonna on the dance floor.
4. Leonardo DiCaprio has a new girlfriend and he’s older than her mother.
So, Leonardo DiCaprio has a new girlfriend and it’s not one of us.
Leo, 43, is now dating model Camila Morrone who is just 20 years old.
According to Page Six, the couple are holidaying in Japan at the moment with some friends and Morrone’s mum Lucila Solá, who, erm, is actually younger than Leo.
That is all.
5. Kendra Wilkinson has announced her divorce in a moving post.
Yep. Another celebrity couple has split up.
Former Girls Next Door star and Hugh Hefner’s ‘third girlfriend’ Kendra Wilkinson Baskett has filed for divorce from her husband of almost nine years Hank Baskett.
The 32-year-old announced the sad news with a moving Instagram post, saying the couple who starred in their own reality TV show Kendra On Top “have chosen to go [their] own ways”.
“Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man. I will forever love Hank and be open… I’m beyond sad and heartbroken because I did believe in forever, that’s why I said yes,” she captioned the image of herself and Hank at a happier time.
“We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy [and] never know the difference other than seeing mama smile.”
The mother-of-two also said they will continue to co-parent their two children Hank IV, eight, and Alijah, three.
“Marriage was just a piece of paper and a piece of jewellery but our hearts will always be real. U (sic) will prob see us together a lot but it’s because there’s no hate. Love wins in this case it’s just looks a little funny,” she wrote.
“Thank you Hank for a beautiful eight years of marriage and two beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed.”
