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

1. Married At First Sight hasn’t even started and there are already feuds. Obviously.

If the pre-season is any indication, strap yourselves in, it looks like this season of Married At First Sight is going to be one of its craziest yet.

2019 MAFS star, Jessika Power, has come out a day before the new season airs to expose new bride, Stacey Hampton for… something?

After spending a night out in Melbourne with 2020 MAFS bride, Haley Vernon, 27-year-old Jessika Power shared a series of Instagram stories calling out Vernon’s presumed rival, Stacey Hampton.

“What I see here is a girl who’s 25, gone on this show and just gaslighted the s*** out of a girl (Haley) who has actually worked her entire ass off to be fit, healthy and brought herself out of the darkest of places,” Jessika wrote alongside a picture of Stacey.

“All to be labelled and slandered by someone who is clearly insecure that someone may bag more ‘air time’ than her. This girl even wrote to me that she thought she was the new ‘me’ on the show.”

Power then shared a private response to her story, that was implied to have been from another 2020 contestant, affirming Jessika’s statements.

“Babe, you always see people’s true colours eventually,” the anonymous co-star wrote.

Jessika finally shared a screenshot of her messages with Stacey Hampton, where Hampton wrote: “I thought I was the next you”.

Cryptic.

Now, excuse us as we sit and wait for the new season to premiere, tomorrow night on Nine at 7.30pm.

2. Just all the photos from Stormi’s ridiculously extra second birthday party.

If you’re a fan of over-the-top kid parties like I am, you may remember one year ago Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott threw their then one-year-old daughter an extravagant birthday party, aptly naming the event “Stormiworld“.

Well, Stormi is now two, and double the age, double the fun right? Here’s all the photos you need to see courtesy of Kylie and her sisters, Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Khloe Kardashian, from Stormiworld 2.

Goodness. We are one day away from the premiere of the new season of Married At First Sight and no I am not ready.

The level of drama is rumoured to top last year which is... alarming.

Executive producer of the show, Tara McWilliams, has also now admitted that the contestants aren't really looking for love on the show, which sounds... entirely counterproductive to the premise of the show. But also very self-aware of the production team.

"I think the experience is probably the main driver now," McWilliams told Sydney Morning Herald of the reasons people go on the show.

"Being on television, being part of the experiment and whatever that brings. I don't think it's so black and white as either love or fame," she added.

"But even if people are coming on to increase their profile, or to get Instagram followers, or to get some sort of public profile out of this, I genuinely believe that everyone who comes on hopes they are matched with someone they like and potentially could have a relationship with."

Whether the contestants are there for love or fame, I think we all better buckle ourselves in for the next season of MAFS.

4. Oh. Pamela Anderson and Jon Peters have split less than two weeks after their wedding.

Less than two weeks after saying 'I do', Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and Hollywood producer Jon Peters have decided to split.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Saturday, the 52-year-old actress said, “I have been moved by the warm reception to Jon and my union. We would be very grateful for your support as we take some time apart to re-evaluate what we want from life and from one another.

“Life is a journey and love is a process. With that universal truth in mind, we have mutually decided to put off the formalization of our marriage certificate and put our faith in the process. Thank you for respecting our privacy," said Anderson.

An inside source supposedly told  Us Weekly that Peters was the one who called things off and the couple never actually got a marriage license.

The pair, who have both been married four times before, tied the knot in a secret Malibu wedding late last month.

“Pamela has never seen her full potential as an artist. She has yet to shine in a real way. There is much more to her than meets the eye, or I wouldn’t love her so much,” the 74-year-old told The Hollywood Reporter after their wedding.

“There are beautiful girls everywhere. I could have my pick, but — for 35 years — I’ve only wanted Pamela. She makes me wild — in a good way. She inspires me. I protect her and treat her the way she deserves to be treated."

5. In 2007, 21-year-old hairdresser Aleisha Cowcher won Big Brother. This is her life now.

It was a Big Brother romance that lasted for two years after the couple left the house. But 2007 winner Aleisha Cowcher – now Collins – says she and fellow housemate Billy Bentley probably never would have got together in the outside world.

“I feel like we probably just connected because we needed someone in the house,” Collins tells Mamamia. “And we did connect in the house, I’m not taking that away, and we ended up staying together for a couple of years. But we’re definitely two different people that I don’t think in normal circumstances probably would have had a relationship.”

When Collins tried out for Big Brother, she was a 20-year-old hairdresser from country Victoria.

“I was visiting my sister in Melbourne,” she remembers. “I happened to walk past the auditions and I thought, ‘Oh, maybe I’ll have a go.’”

She never dreamed of a career in the media.

“I feel like that’s probably where Billy and I differed,” she explains. “He was chasing that lifestyle whereas I was chasing normality. I did a few photoshoots and a couple of TV commercials but my passion was always in hairdressing. After the show had aired I just wanted my normal life back.”
