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

1. Kim Kardashian on the “dramatic” reason we won’t be getting a Kardashian Christmas card this year.

In a tradition as old as Christmas itself (give or take a few centuries), every year as the Christmas trees go up, so does the Kardashian family Christmas card.

Until this year.

You see last year, there was a bit of family drama between Kim and Kourtney over the family Christmas card. In her own sisterly way, Kim told Kourtney she was the “least interesting to look at”, and the oldest Kardashian did not take that well.

And thus a time old tradition swiftly died.

Speaking to E! News, Kim Kardashian confirmed the demise of the Kardashian Khristmas Kard.

“I have to say, in thanks to last year’s Christmas card, that really did just f–k us over,” she said.

“That was so dramatic.”

Instead the family is expected to reunite at Kim and Kanye’s who will host the annual Christmas Eve party, which to be honest, is a bit selfish on their part.

So in other words, Christmas is cancelled and bah-bloody-humbug.

2. Honey Badger just confirmed one of the biggest rumours about the Bachelor franchise.

We have news.

Big news.

A long-standing Bachelor rumour has finally been confirmed and it's all thanks to the Honey Badger.

Speaking to ABC Radio National, Nick Cummins confirmed what we've suspected for a very long time – Bachelor couples are forced to stay together for at least three months after the show.

According to Nick, this 'love contract' was one of the main reasons behind his controversial decision not to choose a winner on the show.

"People are so brainwashed, you're not going to get your fairytale ending every time," Nick said on air.

"And what's more important: me just saying 'yes' and going through the motions and dragging some girl through all the media about how we're in love and then three months down the track after the contract's over, we're allowed to break up?" he continued.

"That's happened [in the past]. I wasn't going to do that because I have respect for the girl."

3. A fan paid $20K for a date with Orlando Bloom. Then Katy Perry swooped in.

Well.

The ultimate prize was up for grabs at a charity auction over the weekend – a date with the one and only Orlando Bloom.

But while a fan pledged $20,000 for lunch and a motorcycle ride with the actor, her bid ended up being more than doubled by Kate Perry.

Um, Katy, you could have just called him and asked for a date...

The 34-year-old singer paid $50,000 for her date with Orlando, with the funds going towards those affected by the devastating California fires.

"Laura, I'm sorry. I'm buying it for $50,000," Katy told the fan she out-bid before dropping her microphone on the stage and walking off.

Although Katy and Orlando previously dated, it's not clear if they're currently dating.

4. Cassandra Thorburn has unleashed on the “bullying campaign by the media”.

Cassandra Thorburn has claimed she's being made out to be a "bitter ex-wife" by some sections of the media - and well, she has a good point.

The former journalist and ex-wife to Karl Stefanovic was at a mother and baby event in Sydney on Tuesday, where, according to the Daily Telegraph she took a "swipe" at his new wife-to-be Jasmine Yarbrough. (The couple's ceremony is this weekend in Mexico, but according to recent reports they've already signed the paperwork making them legally married, maybe.)

Here's what she said: "[Life] is not a fashion show, it's not a competition... It is not a competition on going out and dressing up."

We can totally understand how Cass got a bit upset that somehow got turned into a dig at Jasmine, who is a fashion designer, but... so?

The 47-year-old told the Daily Mail that she was actually talking about motherhood generally and encouraging women not to worry too much about their looks and judging each other.

"Anyone who knows me at all knows I have never believed following fashion is a good thing," she told the publication.

And well, that does make a lot more sense.

She also asked for the attempts to paint her as a woman all-consumed by thoughts of Karl and Jasmine to stop, now, please.

"The bullying campaign by the media to make me out as a bitter ex-wife is disgraceful."

5. Cass Wood was just snapped grocery shopping with a fellow Bachelor in Paradise contestant.

As the end of 2018 looms closer, we’re beginning to look to the year ahead and all the exciting new things 2019 has in store for us.

Perhaps the most exciting thing we have our sights set on is the next season of Bachelor in Paradise.

But before the season has even aired, the couple rumours are coming in thick and fast. (So if you’re not into spoilers, you should probably avert your eyes).

Just yesterday, paparazzi photos emerged of Alex Nation and Bill Goldsmith straight-up pashing in a Melbourne park.

And this morning’s ritualistic stalking of past Bach contestants may have outed another potential couple.

Sweet angel Cass Wood, who made history for many fans as the first contestant to make people cry while watching an episode of reality TV, and Nathan Favro, the guy Ali viciously booted out of the Bach mansion after hearing he was talkin’ smack about ~the stairs~, are the next rumoured couple.

The two were seen frolicking in a supermarket, being cute at the movies and dancing up a storm at someone’s actual house in series of flirty Insta Stories on Cass’ profile yesterday.

And, well, we all know putting your date in a headlock is practically admitting to the world that you are already married and have eight babies on the way.
