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

1. A Bachelor producer says Ali and Taite are already headed for a break up.

It seems The Bachelorette’s Ali Oetjen and Taite Radley might not be getting the fairy tale ending we were expecting…

Despite teasing a pregnancy announcement on Instagram yesterday, a Bachelorette producer has claimed that the pair will split “in less than six months”.

Speaking to Who magazine, the anonymous source reportedly claimed that 28-year-old Taite only applied to be on the show as he wanted to become next year’s Bachelor.

“Mark my words, [the split] will be framed in such a way that Ali ended it and that he is the one who is devastated so he can still try to win public support and get The Bachelor gig,” the source claimed.

Well, this is a little bit awkward.

Despite being one of the most famous actors in the world, it turns out Chris Hemsworth was actually snubbed by Leonardo DiCaprio.

The worst part? It happened twice.

Speaking on Nova FM's Fitzy and Wippa Show, Chris' personal trainer Luke Zocchi shared what went down.

According to Luke, while on a press tour for Thor 2 in Japan, Chris reached out to Leo's publicist asking if he wanted to grab a beer.

He never got a reply.

A few days later, Luke and Chris spotted Leo in the lobby of the hotel and tried to catch his attention.

"I remember Chris waving and I remember turning and DiCaprio's marching through the lobby with 15 dudes and he just walked straight past Chris," Luke told the radio hosts.

"I turned to Chris and I was like, 'Oh this is so awkward right now.' He's like, 'Oh God.'"

Eek.

4. Why the Kardashian family have decided to cancel their Christmas card this year.

Bad news, guys.

We regret to inform you the Kardashian family will not be gracing us with a Christmas card this year.

No matching denim and white t-shirt outfits. No matching space age outfits or tuxedos. No matching #blessed pouts.

After a fan voiced his concern about whether or not we would get a Kardashian Christmas card in 2018 thanks to all the drama that's been going on (you know, how Tristan Thompson cheated on Khloe, his pregnant partner, days before she gave birth to their first child), Kim practically confirmed it by re-tweeting the post with the caption 'Wow reading my mind'.

The Kardashians were sharing pre-planned, highly staged Christmas cards long before they began filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2007. You can take a stroll down memory lane to see the Kardashian Christmas cards through the ages here (scroll down to the end for the gallery).

It's truly a great loss we're sure Twitter will deeply mourn.

Us, not so much.

5. "She'd just be so proud." Sarah Ferguson on what Diana would've thought of Kate and Meghan.

Sarah Ferguson has shared what she believes Princess Diana would think of her daughters-in-law Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, had she still been alive today.

Fergie, the ex-wife of the Duke of York and a close friend of Diana before her death, said Diana would have been so proud of the “wonderful” Duchesses.

The Duchess of York said the Princess of Wales would’ve “loved every moment” of her son’s weddings.

“She’d really just be so proud,” she said on Good Morning Britain, as reported by The Sun.

“Even before they got married, Diana would have been just literally going ‘I can’t believe these boys have done so well’. They are such a credit to her."
