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

1. “It became toxic.” MAFS’ Aleks on what really happened between her and Ivan.

No MAFS couple has played with our hearts quite as much as Aleks and Ivan. They went from being this season’s fan favourites to walking off mid-series together before eventually breaking up. For all of us at home, it was a lot to keep up with.

And now, Aleks has shared what really went down between her and her (fake) husband during an Instagram Q&A.

“Our lifestyle was just so different. We were just fighting a lot, it was becoming toxic,” Aleks said in an Instagram video on Wednesday.

“I’m ready to settle down and have kids and I just think our lifestyles wouldn’t match up with raising kids together.”

Aleks went on to explain that her and Ivan's values didn't align.

"I need my values to match up with a man. I need them to be similar to me on how they want to raise kids, etc," she said.

Despite their break up, Aleks said Ivan was "a great person" and the pair were simply "better off as friends".

After the MAFS finale aired last week, Aleks revealed her and Ivan split in February, just weeks after filming the episode.

"My MAFS journey was one that I will never forget. I learnt so much about myself and what I truly want and need for myself and in a partner. I do not doubt that my soulmate is out there somewhere," she wrote.


Here's hoping Ivan and Aleks both find what they are looking for!

2. "Give me a year to think about it." MAFS' Stacey addresses rumours about The Bachelorette.

Well, these are certainly unusual times we are living in.

You see, there's a few rumours floating around that Stacey Hampton from Married At First Sight could be our the next Bachelorette.

The 26-year-old law graduate addressed the rumours during an Instagram Q&A on Wednesday.

Stacey was asked, "Would you go on another (reality) show?"

"Give me a year to think about that. I need to get over this. I need a whole year to get over this and corona," she replied.

"But potentially. A lot of people have mentioned Bachelorette. I don't know, we'll see."

Stacey wouldn't be the first reality star to become The Bachelorette after Gogglebox's Angie Kent was on the show last year.

Then again, it would certainly be the first time a Channel Nine MAFS star has jumped networks to star on the Channel Ten dating show.

Only time will tell. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

3. Oh. It looks like Naomi Watts is having a rough time in self-isolation.

Look. Naomi Watts has had a bad day.

Aren't we all having a few of those...

But today was particularly rough because three of her appliances died... all on the same day.

Uploading a video to her Instagram, Watts screamed about the situation in slow-motion.

4. After splitting from I'm A Celeb's Ryan, Charlotte Crosby has confirmed her new relationship.

Following her short-lived relationship with former MAFS star Ryan Gallagher on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, Charlotte Crosby has confirmed her new relationship.


Speaking to Heatworld, the 29-year-old former Geordie Shore star shared that she is currently dating a 30-year-old videographer, who she met while holidaying in Dubai.

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, however, videographer Liam is currently stuck in self-isolation in Bali, while Charlotte is staying with her mum in the UK.

"It's going as well as it can be when you're stuck on the other side of the world. At least we've got FaceTime, I suppose," Charlotte said.

"The time difference isn't too bad; there's a good chunk of the day where we get to speak to each other. He's got plans to come home. There are still flights available, so it's all up in the air," she added.

"Hopefully we can hang out once he's back."

Speaking to Studio 10 earlier this month, Charlotte shared that she's no longer on speaking terms with I'm A Celeb's Ryan.

"I don't think Ryan really likes us as a person anymore," she shared.

"I did try quite a lot to speak with him the last time I was in Australia but he kind of just ignored us."

5. Demi Moore and Bruce Willis' divorce shook Hollywood. 20 years on, they're isolating together.

When iconic A-list couple Demi Moore and Bruce Willis separated in 1998, it shook Hollywood.

They’d been walking red carpets at film premieres in leather jackets and teashade glasses together since the late 80s. She, a ‘screen siren’ with leading lady sex appeal; he, a blockbuster action star known for playing handsome men living on the edge.


But behind all their joint success, their marriage was crumbling, with the couple officially finalising their divorce in 2000.

20 years on, and Moore and Willis are isolating together because that’s what we’re doing now. Instantly, everyone wanted to know: are Bruce Willis and Demi Moore back together??? But it turns out, in 2020, going into lockdown with your ex ain’t no big thing.

According to Instagram, the famous Hollywood exes have been isolating together for almost a month, along with their three daughters, two of the daughter’s boyfriends, another unidentified guest and many, many dogs.

Also, and this is important, the whole lot are wearing matching green and white stripped onesies. Yes, even the bloody dogs.

After seeing photos of the pair self-isolating today, we felt nostalgic for the story (and photos) of their relationship.
