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

1. We can’t stop thinking about the time Orlando Bloom got his penis out on a paddle board.

On Valentine’s Day, singer Katy Perry and actor Orlando Bloom announced their engagement on Instagram.

The couple who’ve been dating on-and-off since January, 2016 shared a selfie featuring a big ole $5 million flower engagement ring.

It’s lovely news. Just wonderful.

But… we can’t stop thinking about the time Orlando Bloom got his penis out on a paddle board.

Honestly, it’s the first thing we Googled after the couple’s engagement announcement.

Our internet search brought us to a 2017 interview Perry did on KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show during which the singer explained exactly why her now fiancé was paddle boarding with no pants on.

“I’ve had lots of therapy about that moment,” the Grammy-winning singer said at the time.

“He asked me if I wanted to [be naked] and it was just one of those things where I was like ‘oh, nah’. You know when you’re dating someone sometimes and it’s exciting, and you’re thinking should we try this…”

“I was just not in the mood, so I stayed with the clothes.”

Case closed.

2. “I was never Mrs Stefanovic.” What Cassandra Thorburn wants us to know about her marriage.

Cassandra Thorburn is about to make her reality TV debut appearance on the newly-rejigged Dancing with the Stars.

As each celebrity on the show does, Thorburn will be given a ‘job description’ that she’ll be introduced as every time she takes the dance floor. Despite being well-known as former Today host Karl Stefanovic’s ex-wife, that will not be what defines Thorburn on the show.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, the author and mum-of-three said she’s looking forward to the opportunity to present her personality to the public.

“There’s the Cass that people think of as the former Mrs Stefanovic. I was never a Mrs Stefanovic. I have always been Cass Thorburn,” she told the publication.

“It is a fresh start to a new year and a great outlook… I can control being able to present myself as me.”

Thorburn’s entire public persona has been linked to her ex-husband since it was reported Stefanovic divorced her in September, 2016 after 21 years of marriage.

Now, it’s her turn, and we can’t wait to see how she goes on Dancing.

3. Why so many people really don’t like Kim Kardashian West’s house.


In news that’ll surprise no one, Kanye West out-Kanyed himself to treat his wife Kim Kardashian-West on Valentine’s Day.

Kardashian-West shared the romantic (?) gesture on her Instagram account, showing jazz musician Kenny G playing the saxophone surrounded by individual rose stems in individual slim vases.

Aside from being truly bizarre (each to their own, eh?), the moment has reminded us of something we thought about when the couple gave us a virtual look inside their $60 million dollar home.

It’s… creepy.

The internet thinks so too, including Buzzfeed, who wrote this truly epic article about why their house is so bloody terrifying.

It might have something to do with the all-white furniture. Or the complete lack of furniture. Or the home’s many strange ‘art installations’.

Could also be because Kenny G trapped by floating roses looks like the beginning of a horror film.

We’re sure it was very romantic. And that Kenny G will have nightmares about this for the rest of his natural life.

Is it just us, or are 'the kids' having sex earlier than we were?

Thanks to Married At First Sight's 'Virgin Matt', the 'right' age to lose one's virginity is a topic of conversation.

In what we're sure is a complete coincidence, Friends actress Courtney Cox has spoken about losing her virginity.

Speaking on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Cox said she didn't have sex for the first time until she was 21, and when she did, she was armed with a pair of 'sexy' undies from her mum... which is kind of sweet, but also... mortifying?

“I shouldn’t probably say this, but I will. I was a virgin until I was 21. I think we can be proud of that," Cox said, People reports.

“[Mum] sent me a pair of underwear to try to, you know, womanhood. And they were called Olga, and I swear, the lace was about three and a half, four inches, and then the cotton part.

"They were pretty snazzy... I mean, not in this day and in age."

Not sure why we needed to know about how Cox lost her virginity, but here we are.

Season One of Yummy Mummies is streaming on Netflix, and if you didn’t catch when it first aired on Channel 7 in 2017, here’s the official description:

“Expectant mothers with model looks and lavish lifestyles pull out all the stops to prepare for their new arrivals”…but it is so much more than that.

There’s Maria Di Geronimo in Adelaide, who’s as Posh Spice as you can get – without actually being Victoria Beckham. Then there’s old friends Rachel WattsLorinska Merrington, and Jane Scandizzo in Melbourne, who are actually a small mums’ tribe.

But more importantly than any of that, there’s ridiculous wealth, doting mothers, hard-working husbands, and Range Rovers as push presents. Isn’t that what being pregnant is about, after all?

All women are due within a few weeks of each other, and the show follows their (at times, competitive) friendship as they navigate the journey to become new mums.

While Season 2 of Yummy Mummies us on 7Plus, many of us are ctaching up on the original series on Netflix two years on.

So what have the Yummy Mummies been up to since then?
