The Spill: Thursday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. “I can’t do this.” It looks like The Bachelor Matt’s date with Helena… doesn’t go down well.

We’re more than halfway through this season of The Bachelor, and there’s two thing we know for certain… one, Matt clearly has a thing for blondes and two, Matt is hell-bent on getting married and having kids in the near future.

In a preview for tonight’s episode, Matt asks 25-year-old Helena Sauzier about her plans for the future, in the hopes the pair can “delve a little deeper”. But the pressure clearly overwhelms Helena.

“It’s a lot to commit to one person,” she tells Matt.

In the preview, Helena is asked to fill out a timeline board for the next 10 years… a pretty daunting task.

“This really is quite touching but I also have my guard up and I feel yeah a huge amount of pressure,” she says.

As Matt continues to ask questions about her future, it all seems a bit too much for Helena.

"Oh s**t, I'm literally drowning, I'm freaking out a little bit."

Helena is then seen walking out of the date to speak to a producer.

"It's just that there's a lot of pressure on this. I need to get out of here... I can't do this, I can't," she says.

In the final clip, Matt tells us the date with Helena isn't really going to plan.

We don't know what happens next, but one things for sure, tonight's episode should be a juicy one.

2. Oh. There's a rumour Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter had "a thing" last year.

Miley and Liam's breakup is back in the headlines again and won't be leaving anytime soon now that there's a rumour going around that Kaitlynn Carter and Miley were dating while Kaitlynn and Brody Jenner were still married.

We first heard about Kaitlynn and Miley when they were pictured kissing on a yacht in Italy, hours before Miley and Liam's breakup was announced.

The timelines all seemed to make sense. Both Kaitlynn and Miley were single.

But now Kaitlynn's co-star on The Hills: New Beginnings, Spencer Pratt, is saying the pair already had "a thing" going on while their show was still filming and before Kaitlynn and Brody had split.

“It’s tough for me to listen to Kaitlynn complain about people talking about her allegedly open relationship with Brody when we know she had a thing going with Miley," Spencer Pratt told Cosmopolitan.

"She already had something going on with her when these scenes were filming — maybe not physically, but definitely emotionally."


Miley has continued to deny claims that she was unfaithful during her relationship with Liam.

3. "This cover is insulting." Fans aren't happy with Jennifer Aniston's "unrecognisable" magazine cover.

Someone made the grave mistake of messing with Jennifer Aniston, and people are cranky.

Yes, an employee at fashion/beauty title, InStyle, made the questionable decision to go wild with the airbrush on America's sweetheart for the mag's October cover.

We're not talking typical minor touch-ups. We're talking making her appear, well, like an entirely different person.

"Ok but where is Jennifer Aniston? This ain’t her," one commenter wrote on the magazine's Instagram post featuring the cover.

"She is gorgeous [and] has natural beauty," another added. "What [you] did to her on this cover is insulting to her."

While many seemed offended on behalf of the former Friends star, another more crucial criticism was levelled at the image. Many argued that the obvious darkening of Aniston's skin is an example of 'blackfishing', a term used to describe the social media phenomenon in which Caucasian people attempt to (or are made to) appear mixed race or black using fake tan or photo editing.


As one commenter wrote, "In 2019, if you want a brown skinned woman on your cover, put a brown-skinned woman on your cover."

4. Australian DJ Flume has finally responded to THAT Burning Man incident.

Look. Aussie DJ, Flume, has made an admirable contribution to his genre, done wonders for the profile of the Australian electronic music scene, etc. etc. But that's not why we're here.

We're here because the 27-year-old Sydney-born superstar did a rather, erm, private thing in a very public place. That place was the US cultural festival, Burning Man (which as far as we can tell involves people with heavily dilated pupils getting together in the middle of the Nevada desert to dance, be nude sometimes, and set things on fire... or something).

Footage from this year's event captured Flume, or Harley Edward Streten as his mother calls him, inexplicably orally pleasuring a woman's rear end during a performance.

The video, which his girlfriend Paige Elkington had posted to her Instagram stories on September 2, was subsequently removed from the platform, but not before baffled followers circulated it online, in what has proven to be the viral event of the week/month.

Well, now the man himself has responded with a tongue-in-che... wait, NO! SORRY! With a humorous Instagram post in which he is smiling and biting a peach. It's captioned, "It was a joke (sorry mum)."

Aren't we all, Harley Edward. Aren't we all.

5. A Birkin-filled glam room and an office hair salon: Inside Roxy Jacenko's beauty routine.

They say Kris Jenner works hard, but Roxy Jacenko works harder.

Not only is the Aussie PR queen the CEO of multiple businesses – Sweaty Betty PRMinistry of TalentPixie’s Bows and Roxy’s Bootcamp, to name a few – she’s also a soon-to-be reality TV star, with her own reality TV show I Am Roxydebuting on Channel Ten next week.

The mum-of-two’s brand is over the top glam and when Roxy gave us an exclusive rundown of how she gets ready every day on Mamamia’s You Beautypodcast, we learnt her beauty routine is no different.

From how she outsources her twice-weekly hair washing to her surprisingly low key skincare routine, here’s how Roxy Jacenko looks like ‘Roxy Jacenko’ everyday.

Surprisingly, Roxy’s skincare routine is really basic.

“I am lazy when it comes to skincare, it comes down to time, so if it’s not quick and in front of my face, I don’t really use it… until I get to a situation when I look at myself and think, best you do something about that,” she said.
