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


1. ‘I’m staying single in 2020.’ MAFS’ Jessika Power just shared how many men she’s slept with and vows to focus on herself next year.

Former Married at First Sight contestant Jessika Power just got very candid about her personal life, specifically, the number of people she’s slept with.

Despite being linked to countless people, including her MAFS husband Nick Furphy and Suleiman “Sam” Abdulrahim – a kickboxer who was formerly jailed for causing the death on an elderly woman after a high-speed car crash – she says her number is more conservative than people might expect. Not that there’s a right or wrong figure.

“I’ve probably only slept with like 14 people,” said the 28-year-old, speaking to Daily Mail Australia.

“Before my love life was in the public eye, I’d go on dates, sometimes two in a week. That’s what dating is. Finding out who you like,” she continued.

“But now I’m constantly being slut-shamed, and everybody in Australia seems to think I’m a whore. I’m constantly getting messages from older women saying horrible things as if they haven’t been on multiple dates before.”

Power added that that prior to going on MAFS she had been in a committed six-year relationship. However, with 2020 around the corner, the influencer said she wants to ‘stay single’ for the year.

“I’m looking forward to Christmas in Cairns with my family and I’m on a man ban. I’m staying single in 2020 and want to focus on myself and self-love.”

And power to her (pun intended).

2. “I had to pick it up.” I’m A Celeb’s Julia Morris’ bathroom confession is giving us second-hand embarrassment.


Julia Morris has shared the time her poo accidentally ended up on the middle of the road while she was filming I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, and this story is not for the faint-hearted.


The host of Channel 10’s I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! appeared on the McKnight Tonight podcast, in which she shared the… icky anecdote.

Occurring two years ago, the 51-year-old said she had been given a trailer with her own toilet, except there was some confusion as to whether it had been “connected to the system”. Initially she was elated.

“It was like a little cabin made out of a shipping container, it’s that sort of vibe. Beautiful. I couldn’t believe my luck. I’m like, ‘Who are we?,'” she described to host, Robert McKnight.

“A chap came to my door [and]… said it will be connected by tomorrow morning, my guarantee, and if it flushes, it’s totally working.

“Next morning I get in, I just did a little test flush, I’m like, ‘Oh good. It’s working. Oh my God, this is great.'”

After relieving herself and exiting the trailer she realised something was not quite right.

“I come out of the trailer and there’s a few people kind of standing around looking really strangely in the middle of the road. And like, ‘What’s their problem? What’s everyone looking at that’s so weird?’ And I turn around and there’s a little collection of my poo poo in the middle of the road,” she continued.

To make matters worse, she then bumped into Channel 10 Executive Producer, Stephen Tate, who admitted he saw the entire thing unfold. Or as he put it “roll out”.

“He said, ‘I’ve seen it.’ And I said, ‘Oh my God, Stephen, what are you talking about?’ He goes, ‘Not only have I seen it, I saw it roll out,'” she said.

“So apparently now, I’m such a huge star, I will just take a dump in the street whenever I feel like it.

“I had to pick it up, I was dying. They’re like, ‘You are in full wardrobe, don’t you dare touch that poo.'”

In the end, Stephen sorted the issue out for her (because not all heroes wear capes), and as a result, she did not have to make contact with her own faeces.


“He apparently went back down to the office and he said to one of the producers who said, ‘Listen, there’s a celebrity turd up there on the road that needs to be sorted,'” said Julia.

And our thoughts and prayers go straight to the poor intern or production runner who most likely got dumped (lol) with that task.


3. No drama here! The Bachelor’s Jarrod Woodgate appears to respond to rumours he’s feuding with ex Keira Maguire.

Jarrod Woodgate has responded to rumours he’s feuding with his ex Keira Maguire in the way all The Bachelor stars do best… with a cryptic pointed Instagram post.

On Wednesday, following weeks of claims that the pair are “locked in a bitter feud”, Jarrod shared a quote which read: “People with purpose, goals and visions have no time for drama.”

“They invest their energy in creativity and focus on living a positive life,” the message continued.

We can’t tell if this is meant to be positive or negative but… okay? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Earlier this week, Keira told the Daily Mail that any rumours that state she’s on bad terms with Jarrod are “absolutely rubbish”.

“All I would like to say. I didn’t know Jarrod had a girlfriend, but if he does I hope he is happy,” she said.

“I think Jarrod and Sam make a really cute couple if they are together.”

While Jarrod is reportedly dating Sam Royce, who competed on Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor, Keira has been linked to Alex Mckay, who appeared on Angie Kent’s season of The Bachelorette.

Both Keira and Alex are rumoured to be appearing on next year’s season of Bachelor in Paradise Australia.

4. Erm, are Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson starting a band together? ‘Cause it sure seems so.

Although Miley Cyrus has spent the past couple weeks on vocal rest following vocal cord surgery, it looks like the 27-year-old could be releasing new music next year.

Except… it’s not in the way we were expecting.

Thanks to the detective work of eagle-eyed fans, it looks like Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson are starting a band together.

Yesterday, TMZ reported that Cyrus had filed paperwork to trademark the band name Bandit and Bardot.

According to the publication, the trademark would cover “entertainment services, including live music performances by a band and live performances by a professional singer, musician and entertainer”.

The band also appears to have an Instagram page under the same name.

Yesterday, multiple publications reported that the Instagram page followed just Simpson and Cyrus. But today, it appears the page is following no one… which totally isn’t suspicious. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Earlier this month, Simpson told E! that the pair we thinking about collaborating.

"Yeah, definitely. We're looking at it," he said at the time.

"We are getting all the songs down [on my album] and then seeing who would make sense for what. It's going to be cool. It's going to be pretty much a rock album. A lot of guitar."

5. 'It was an awful delivery.' After giving birth to her son Saint, Kim Kardashian needed five operations.

Kim Kardashian West has always wanted a big family.

The media personality and entrepreneur, who has four children with her husband Kanye West, has always been open about her “wild” experience of raising North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

But the 39-year-old’s journey to motherhood hasn’t been easy.

Although Kim delivered her first two children, six-year-old daughter North and four-year-old son Saint, the reality star used a surrogate to deliver her youngest children, one-year-old daughter Chicago and seven-month-old son Psalm, after enduring life-threatening complications.

We cover her complicated delivery in our earlier post here.
