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

1. What we all missed about the boys and girls night on Married at First Sight.

Ah, Married At First Sight.

Besides the endless drama, the intense fights and the very likely set up cheating scandals, there’s another aspect fans of the show are absolutely obsessed with – searching for editing fails.

And this week, eagle-eyed fans have spotted a doozy.

Remember the girls and boys nights on Tuesday night’s episode?

Well, it turns out the two groups were a lot closer than we thought.

According to a screenshot shared on a MAFS parody Instagram account, the venues the boys and girls were at – The Loose Moose and Roosevelt Lounge – are right next to each other.

Um, surely the boys could have overheard Elizabeth and Ines’ screaming match from next door, right?

2. Kim Kardashian has responded to the Tristan/Jordan cheating scandal in the best way.

If you’ve spent any time on the internet today, you’ll have noticed it’s gone into overdrive over a cheating scandal involving a very famous family known as the Kardashians.

Yes, people, Tristan and Khloe are OVER.

Which, to be honest, isn’t all that surprising given his heavily reported cheating ways since pretty much the dawn of their relationship.

What IS surprising is the fact that this time, he’s gone and done it with Kylie Jenner’s bestie and roommate, Jordyn Wood.

Whoa, right?

Well – the first Kardashian has now responded, and it’s Kim, because of course it is.

So what has she said exactly?

Well, nothing. But she has done what any good sister/girlfriend would do in such a situation.

She’s unfollowed them both from Instagram – thus initiating their swift ejection from the KarJenner circle.

Bravo.

3. “I’m crazy about her.” Married at First Sight’s Matthew has a new girlfriend.

Proving (yet again) that you probably do have more luck finding someone in the real world than forging a successful marriage with a stranger you’ve been paired with by a panel of “experts” on national television, ex-virgin Matt seems to have a new girlfriend.

After leaving the show, and his ‘wife’ Lauren Huntiss, Matthew Bennett has revealed he has a new lady in his life, and he’s “crazy about her”.

Speaking to Sunshine Coast Daily this week, the 29-year-old said he met his new girlfriend Annabelle after MAFS filming wrapped.

“It’s been months since the experiment finished for me. Since wrapping filming I’ve met a girl,” Matthew told the publication.

“I’m crazy about her. I’ve never been with someone who makes time disappear when I’m with her.”

Matt, who has been at the centre of a media storm since he and Lauren left the experiment, added that the scrutiny has made things tricky on the blossoming romance.

“Reliving the experiment on TV and in the media is certainly putting strain on this new relationship, we’re working through it and I’m optimistic for the future,” he said.

4. Channel Nine has fiercely defended Today host Georgie Gardner over “false” reports.

Channel Nine bosses have stepped in to vehemently defend Today host Georgie Gardner after an article claimed ratings had dropped because viewers found her “cold”.

Darren Wick, the director of news and current affairs at the Nine Network, called the vicious article "one of the most deliberate acts of bullying" he'd ever seen.

The piece, published by News Corp, claimed that focus groups had determined that viewers found banter between Georgie and her co-host Deb Knight "forced".

"The data shows she was accepted as a newsreader, then when she returned as host they never warmed to her," the article read.

"They find her cold, an ice maiden."

Nine labelled the article "irresponsible reporting", and issued a statement revealing details of their own focus group.

"Nine conducted a number of focus groups throughout the last six months of 2018, under my supervision, and the feedback from those viewers was overwhelmingly positive about Georgie Gardner," Wick revealed.

5. Every time Lady Gaga has a career high, her romantic relationships "implode".

Thanks to her attendance at the Grammys without her engagement ring, many fans may have seen Lady Gaga’s confirmation of her split from fiancé Christian Carino coming.

But the 32-year-old may have predicted as early as last October that her romantic life, once again was going to “implode”.

The A Star Is Born actress has experienced a pattern – which she herself has recognised – of having her relationships end immediately after she enjoys a huge career success.

Back in October, A Star Is Born was met with a rapturous reception both critically and at the box office. Now, just as the film looks set to pick up at least a few of the seven Oscars it has been nominated for at the Academy Awards next week, she and her talent agent fiancé have officially ended their engagement.

As Gaga pointed out in her 2017 documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two, this would not be the first time that a career milestone has seemingly impacted her love life.

"My love life has just imploded," she said while talking about the fights she'd been having with her then-fiancé Taylor Kinney during filming. "It's like a turnover."
