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

1. The nine-year family battle that Jess says still affects her mother-in-law Fatima.

On Bride & Prejudice, Fatima Abazovski has been labelled the “mother-in-law from hell”.

And it’s not hard to see why, over the course of this season Fatima has described her son Seyat’s fiancée Jess as a “prostitute” and a “wh*re”.

But according to Jess, there may be a deeper issue lurking behind Fatima’s behaviour on the reality show.

Speaking to New Idea, 21-year-old bride-to-be Jess said that she “feels sorry” for her mother-in-law.

Fatima has made it clear that she isn't a fan of Jess.

"I thought it was really sad and I felt sorry for Seyat and his mum and his family, but I didn't treat anybody any differently because of that," Jess told the magazine.

Jess explained how an event nine years ago has taken a toll on Seyat's family.

Speaking about how his 22-year-old brother was diagnosed with schizophrenia at age 13, Seyat explained: "He used to be a normal kid and now he doesn't have a normal life... he just chills at home and does nothing."

Jess and Seyat's wedding will air on Bride & Prejudice tonight.

Erm.

This is awkward.

In a new extract from her upcoming memoir Brutally Honest, Mel B has shared the incredibly embarrassing details of her sexual encounter with a very famous man.

According to The SunMel described how she used a "secret website" to select a famous man based on a photo of "erect privates lined up against milk cartons".

Uh, OK then.

Mel wrote: "I was in Soho House on a night out with a couple of girlfriends when the images came through.

"I shut my laptop. Then, obviously, opened it again. We spent the next few hours laughing and gawping," she continued.

"A few days later, I met him (young, handsome, very famous) in a hotel room. It was horribly awkward and nothing happened (it was obviously easier with a milk carton)."

Mel added that she later tried again with "another famous penis in another hotel room", but experienced the same disappointing result.

3. MAFS star Tracey Jewel has penned an emotional open letter to her trolls.

After a difficult year, former Married At First Sight star Tracey Jewel  has posted an open letter to her trolls on Instagram.

The 35-year-old said she'd been "debating posting this for a while", but ultimately, felt she really needed to draw some boundaries around the bullying she's experienced.

"I don't have limitless energy to fight this every day," she wrote in the post.

An open letter to my trolls (And I’ve debating posting this for a while) I’ve been very open about my struggles with anxiety partly caused by the ongoing barrage of messages and emails I receive. I’ve lost sleep, sworn to close my accounts, been defensive, run away and outted them. Some are strangers and some I have a very good idea who they are.. and they’re known to me. I don’t have limitless energy to fight this every day. I’m just an ordinary woman trying to express myself. I’m not perfect, I’ve made mistakes and I just want to connect and make the world a little less lonely and share our struggles together. I can’t spend my days waiting to block another one. One in particular messages me every day, I report and block and they just come back with a new fake account. They know where I live, when I see my daughter and tell me they won’t stop until they ruin me. They screen shot and message me the fact they contact everyone I work with with the desire to bring me down and prevent me from working and living my life. To this person: through our days of pointless messages, I’ve thought about you a lot, I picture who you are (because you keep saying you are very close to me) - and not just the person behind the computer who messages me but who you really are. You endlessly open new email accounts to replace the ones I’ve blocked, typing your messages, getting relief by the thought of the hurt they will cause when I read them Through your personal attacks I can see why you dedicate your life to expressing yourself in such a negative toxic way. A desire to abuse. And I am overwhelmed with compassion for you. one of my purposes for being on social media is to show and share compassion and even trolls need compassion. The world is so much bigger than social media. But social media has brought me so much love and warmth. It has brought me new friends, the many followers who have supported me and rushed to my defence even if they don’t know me personally. “We will never change someone by breaking them down, only by building them up.” My account will probably lose some followers over this.. but that’s ok... I hope we all find peace x

And ultimately, the bullying has taken its toll.

"I've been very open about my struggles with anxiety partly caused by the ongoing barrage of messages and emails I receive. I've lost sleep, sworn to close my accounts, been defensive, run away and outted them," she wrote.

"I'm not perfect, I've made mistakes and I just want to connect and make the world a little less lonely and share our struggles together. I can't spend my days waiting to block another one."

Jewel explained that the cyberbullying is a battle she just can't seem to win.

"I report and block and they just come back with a new fake account. They know where I live, when I see my daughter and tell me they won't stop until they ruin me."

Jewel said that whilst social media can be a warm community, the negativity is immensely draining.

"The world is so much bigger than social media... My account will probably lose some followers over this... but that's OK... I hope we all find peace x."

4. The Sex and the City 3 movie plot has finally been revealed and now we’re glad it wasn’t made.

The mythical third instalment of the Sex and the City movie has been consistently teased right in front of our faces, but considering the potential plot line, we're kind of glad the film never made it to production.

Thanks to the Origins podcast, headed by James Andrew Miller, the latest episode 'Sex and the City: 1, 2, & Out' takes a deep-dive into exactly why the third film was never made, despite the filming date set for October 20. And the very public feud between Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker, might have had quite a bit to do with it.

We don't know how we feel about the possible SATC story line. Image: HBO.

"People close to Kim believe that the script didn't have a lot to offer the character of Samantha," said Miller.

"They point to the fact that it calls for Mr Big to die of a heart attack in the shower, relatively early on in the film, making the remainder of the movie more about how Carrie recovers from Big's death than about the relationship between the four women."

To be honest, we don't know how to feel about a Mr Big-less SATC, but Chris Noth seemed to be all for the potential demise of his character... perhaps another reason why it's a good the third film never saw the light of day.

"I really hate corny stuff and it could be because I'm a little bit of a cynic. Like, the whole thing at the end of the movie in the shoe closet - hated it," Noth said.

"Hated the thing at the end of the movie after I felt she deceived me and then I say, 'Well, it's time I give you a bigger diamond ring.' Hated it. I just hate the cornball shit and I thought it was just really sentimental and overly romantic without any feet in realism."

And while we see his point... there's no need to be killing off much-loved characters for the sake of #drama.

5. Mandy Moore just wore a totally non-traditional (but absolutely beautiful) wedding dress.

In it, Moore is wearing a beautiful tiered tulle Rodarte gown in… wait for it…

PINK.

Yep, it’s pink and has ruffles and flowers and is just super gorgeous and unexpected. And from the photos, it looks like she also had matchy, glittery pink makeup.
