1. “I’m 100 times happier without you.” The feud between MAFS’ Jessika Power and Dan Webb continues.

Who would have thought that approximately 271 days after the last episode of Married At First Sight aired, we would be here, still talking about one of this year’s most controversial couples?  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yes, the feud between MAFS’ Jessika Power and Dan Webb continues to play out, after their now-infamous interview on Talking Married saw their relationship break down on live national television.

Despite parting ways after that, they continue to speak about each other in tabloid media, with Webb this week telling Daily Mail: “We met up and she explained her hurt and her heartbreak after I broke up with her.”

"I guess she still has some feelings there for me and the best way for her to deal with it was to slag me off."

But Jess Power didn't like those comments, hitting back on her Instagram.

"Lost the plot!" the 25-year-old said in an Instagram story with a screenshot of the original article.

"I'm 100 times happier without you," she continued, responding to Dan, 35. "End of story."

Jessika finished: "How many other washed-up cast members want to ride on my name this week?"

Something tells us these two won't be seeing eye-to-eye anytime soon.
 
 

2. Oh. Even Beyonce and Jay Z were emailed a protocol on how to greet Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

In case you missed it, The Lion King premiere this week was a right royal affair, with Queen Beyonce meeting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the red carpet.

It looked like a roaring good time. It has since been revealed, however, that even Beyonce was nervous to meet the Duchess of Sussex.

While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week, Billy Eichner, who voices meerkat Timon in the Disney reboot, shared exactly what meeting Royalty entails.

"We were all kind of nervous, even Beyoncé," Eichner, 40, said. "Really? They [Meghan Markle and Prince Harry] should be bowing to her" Kimmel joked.

"What makes you nervous is that in the days leading up to it, they email you a protocol of how you’re supposed to greet Prince Harry and Meghan and they are very intense about it," Eichner continued.

"You’re supposed to say, ‘Your Royal Highness,’ you can’t speak until your hands are in a handshake with his. My plus one, my friend I brought with me, they said he had to stand behind me and not speak unless he was spoken to."

"I was like, ‘Does that same rule apply to Jay-Z?’" he laughed. "I don’t know. I have a feeling it doesn’t!"

Although the email made him nervous, Eichner said when it came to talking to them on the red carpet, the Royals were in fact more casual they he expected.

The couple, who recently became parents to their son Archie, were apparently "very, very nice and totally chill and down-to-earth and lovely."

Despite the number of times Tristan Thompson reportedly cheated on Khloé Kardashian, the 35-year-old insists she does not hate the father of her daughter.

After Thompson kissed Jordyn Woods, the now former best friend of Khloé's sister Kylie Jenner, the reality TV star wasn't shy about her fury towards the pair.

But it seems Khloé is choosing forgiveness now, after responding to a tweet that read: "I know Khloé hates Tristan, but baby True starting to look just like him."

"Why would I ever hate anyone who helped create such an angel?" Khloé responded. "People make mistakes but I won’t hurt my own healing by holding on to hate. I’m too busy raising my beautiful baby and securing that [money] to hate any individual. Sweet True has always looked like her daddy. She’s beautiful!!"

Well then, it seems if Khloé is moving on from the scandal that rocked their family to the core, then perhaps it's time for the rest of the world to do so too. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Look. Any rumours of an imminent Royal wedding is exciting, so excuse me while I dust off my crown in anticipation.

According to Daily Mail, Princess Beatrice, 30, could be expecting a proposal very soon from her multi-millionaire property developer boyfriend, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 35.

The couple have been together since November last year, after being introduced by mutual friends at her sister Princess Eugenie's wedding.

After attending a friend's wedding this week, friends of the couple reportedly told the publication: "People were saying that it won’t be long before Bea does the same."

Looks like they may just be one step closer to wedded bliss.

Before Matty J gave his heart to Laura Byrne on The Bachelor, he was the victim of a catfishing ploy orchestrated by a woman named ‘Chloe Piper’.

“I was 18, I was very naïve, I was new to social media,” the new father told his Nova 96.9 breakfast show co-hosts Matt de Groot and Sarah McGilvray.

“I was friends with a girl called Chloe Piper. [She was a] beautiful, beautiful young lady. We were speaking for about three months, and every time we time we would tried to meet up she would then say, ‘Actually, I’ve just got food poisoning. I’m really unwell. I can’t do it, I’m so sorry,'” explained the 33-year-old, and ohhh… Matty.

It was then both ‘Chloe’ and Matty found themselves living in Sydney, where he once again tried to spark up a romance.

Spoiler alert: it didn’t work.
