Celeb in 5: Sunday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. Um. It seems Brad Pitt is dating someone new and it’s not… you.

The very slim, very far-fetched chance a regular person like you or I might end up with Brad Pitt has been rudely snatched away from us.

Pitt, who split from his wife of two years Angelina Jolie in 2016, is officially off the market having reportedly partnered up with another of Hollywood’s elite.

Charlize Theron.

What an almost… offensively attractive couple, right?

The 55-year-old Allied actor and 43-year-old Mad Max actress were introduced by Theron’s ex-fiance Sean Penn, according to The Sun.

A source claimed they were “over over each other” at a showbiz event last week, which is just not on in our books.

He’s our imaginary boyfriend.

“They were ridiculously touchy-feely and his arm was around her back. At one point he winked at her,” said the eyewitness.

Sigh, that could have been us.

(In an alternate universe, maybe).

2. Drama pls. There will be “more than one” partner swap on this season of MAFS.

We are so close to the next season of MAFS we can almost taste it.

And it tastes like ~drama~.

According to a producer from the show, it’ll be even juicier than last season, if that’s even possible.

But how?

Well, apparently more than one couple will swap partners which spells potential fights, thus answering all our trashy reality TV hopes and dreams.

“If fans thought last year was ‘juicy’ they’d best prepare themselves for what’s in store, there will be more than one couple swap and some really juicy back stories!” an unnamed producer told The Sydney Morning Herald this weekend.

Meet Married At First Sight Groom, Sam. Post continues after video.

Further to this, the Nine Network has promised “the most outrageous cast in the show’s history”.

STOP.

This is almost too much for us.

It’ll span 44 episodes across 11 weeks, extending the series by an extra 12 episodes compared to last year.

It kicks off January 28 so start kissing goodbye to your midweek social life and buckle up.

3. Oh. It looks like Sarah Jessica Parker could be bringing Carrie Bradshaw back.


Sarah Jessica Parker of Sex and the City fame has shared a little clue which suggests Carrie Bradshaw might be making a comeback.

It’s not another SATC movie (which judging by the feud could be a good thing), but it seems like Parker is involved in a project which involves her on-screen counterpart.

The 53-year-old shared an Instagram clip, which was filmed in the style of the SATC opening credits with the iconic theme song playing in the background. Carrie can be seen walking the streets of New York City in her signature pastel tutu, white lace peep-toe boots, a gold top, and an embroidered fish bag.

“My old friend. She is making a brief reappearance,” she wrote.

“Partnering with a great brand and supporting a cause we all care about. More to come.”

She ended the video with the hashtag #pouritforward, and according to W Magazine, this could be related to beer label Stella Artois’ #PourItForward campaign which was co-founded by fellow celeb Matt Damon.

The charity initiative aims to provide safe drinking water to developing nations through the sale of limited-edition ‘Chalices’.

But how does Carrie Bradshaw factor into this? We’ll just have to wait and see.

4. Ariana Grande has posted a tribute to Mac Miller on what would have been his 27th birthday.


Celebrating what would have been the late rapper’s 27th birthday, Ariana Grande shared a tweet in honour of Mac Miller.

In a now deleted tweet, the singer simply wrote “miss u” in the moments after midnight.

The 25-year-old dated Miller between 2016 and 2018 and has shared multiple tributes on social media since his accidental drug and alcohol overdose in September 2018.

In the week after his death, Grande shared a video of the rapper with a touching caption.

“I adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen and I always will,” she wrote.

“I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. I really can’t wrap my head around it. We talked about this. So many times. I’m so mad, I’m so sad I don’t know what to do. You were my dearest friend. For so long.

“Above anything else. I’m so sorry I couldn’t fix or take your pain away. I really wanted to. The kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. I hope you’re okay now. Rest.”

Several fellow artists have also commemorated the day, with Thundercat, rapper Juicy J and Hi-Tek also tweeting their words of support.

5. Everything we know about the rumour Barnaby Joyce and Vikki Campion are expecting another child.

Eleven months after his spectacular fall from politics and the highly publicised $150,000 Sunday Night interview, Australia’s former Deputy Prime Minister, Barnaby Joyce, and his former staffer, Vikki Campion are reportedly expecting their second child.

Speaking to The Sunday Mail, a “close friend of the family” states the couple are expecting their second child – a boy – in June this year.

“The name is already picked out — Thomas, after Barney’s grandfather,” said the anonymous source.
