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

1. “It was a disaster.” Kyle and Jackie O have recalled their worst interview to date and we’re sweating at the thought of it.

Over the years, Kyle and Jackie O have had some pretty, erm… wild interviews.

But their interview with Russell Crowe in the early 2000s was apparently pretty disastrous.

Earlier today on the Kyle and Jackie O show, the hosts recalled what happened when they first met Russell Crowe for a face-to-face interview.

“We went to his hotel to interview him,” said Jackie O. “We were pretty young and impressionable. We thought, ‘What can we do to get Russell on side and have a great interview with him?’”

The pair decided to give Russell a carton of beer and a carton of cigarettes before the interview.

But he didn’t’ take it… too well.

“It was a disaster,” said Kyle.

Jackie added, “He was offended! He said, ‘Is this what you think I’m like, is it? Is this all there is to me?’”

Yikes.

After that, the interview somehow managed to get worse when the pair began asking him questions.

“We started the interview … and he goes, ‘Have we started yet?’” Jackie O said. “And we’re like, ‘yeah’, and we kept going on and again he said, ‘Sorry, have we started? This is the interview, is it?’”

“It was so bad,” said Kyle.

Fortunately, the interview ended up picking up and Russell invited Kyle and Jackie O to hang around afterwards.

“We stayed there so late, chain-smoking and skolling beer, and I don’t even drink,” Kyle recalled. “I was legless. Then we had to get a cab back to the radio show and we went on air live blind drunk. I was rat-a**ed.”

2. "We're wonderful." The House Bunny's Anna Faris may have just confirmed her engagement.

It's been two years since Hollywood's funniest couple, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, surprised us all by announcing their separation after eight years of marriage.

The pair finalised their divorce the following year and have since moved on with new partners.

Pratt married Arnold Schwarzenegger's daughter, Katherine, in June this year, after less than a year of dating.

And now it seems Anna has confirmed her engagement to her cinematographer boyfriend, Michael Barrett. Well... sort of.

Over the weekend, Anna and her boyfriend of two years were approached by a photographer who asked how they were doing, as seen in footage obtained by E! News.

"We're wonderful," said Anna.

As the pair were posing for photos, the photographer said "congratulations" to which Anna replied, "Thank you!"

The photographer then asked if the couple were "ready for the big day?"  and Anna responded "no".

While Anna doesn't exactly come out and say she's engaged, it does seem like she may have just confirmed she and Michael are planning to tie the knot.

Hmmm, watch this space.

3. T.I.'s daughter unfollowed him on Instagram after his comments about her hymen and that sounds about right.

Well, we've done it. We've officially found the weirdest celebrity story of the year.

Last week, rapper T.I, whose real name is Clifford Joseph Harris Jr, admitted on the Ladies Like Us podcast that he takes his daughter – 18-year-old Deyjah Imani Harris – to a gynaecologist annually to check if she's still a virgin.

At first, podcast hosts Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham initially seemed to think T.I. was joking.

But then... the 39-year-old rapper kept going.

"So it’s this one time we go, I think this might have been after her 16th birthday. This is what we do. Right after the birthday we celebrate," he explained.

"Usually like the day after the party, she’s enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: ‘Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.'"

Now, a week on from T.I's admission, it appears Deyjah has unfollowed her dad on Instagram.

Although the 18-year-old hasn't yet publicly addressed her father's comments, her stance on the situation is fairly clear.

In recent days, Deyjah has liked a series of tweets calling her father "disgusting", "possessive" and "controlling".

Yikes.

4. Mariah Carey awkwardly eating chips in an ad she was paid $16m for will make you laugh and cry.

Mariah Carey has come back into the spotlight (of course, it's Christmas time - what would the festive season be without her songs playing everywhere), this time to spruik some chips.

This year, she's worked with UK chip brand, Walkers, to create an ad showcasing their new, limited-edition flavours for the holiday period.

During the ad, Carey performs her hit Christmas song All I Want For Christmas Is You, and then reaches for her ~favourite~ post-shoot snack - Walkers chips, of course.

And her reaction is... hilarious.

Although the ad combines two of the greatest things about the festive period - food and carols - the internet is going crazy over Carey's less-than-genuine take on eating chips, which she was paid $16 million to do.

Check out some of the hilarious Twitter reactions below.

5. "If Angie doesn't choose Timm, I'm going to burn my bra and protest in the streets."

Sweet Jesus.

We’re only days away from The Bachelorette finale and without a selection of long-haired men to fall in love with, what are we supposed to do with our time?

This week, Angie will face a tough decision. She will have to decide between:

a. A man with a beautiful face and a secret desire to appear on Neighbours

b. A man who could give her unlimited access to doggos but who also does a bit of a lie, or

c. A man who sometimes forgets he has a rose and needs to pee mid-sentence but also really likes her.

She will, of course, choose a or b when she should really choose c.

Timm is a ridiculous man who has a tattoo of his best mate’s mum’s name on his bum and loses his ability to function when wearing a top hat, but he’s also a sweet angel who we must protect at all costs.

Plus, what has Angie consistently said she wants in a man?

“I’ve always been the girl who loves to make everyone laugh, but now I reckon it’s time to have someone to laugh with me, rather than at me,” the 29-year-old said in a statement announcing her as the Bachelorette.
