1. “I feel like an absolute twit.” MAFS’ Martha says she regrets defending Jess over her affair.

You don’t say.

And, despite her fiercely defending the controversial bride on the show, particularly during Sunday’s intense commitment ceremony, she now says she “regrets” the stance she took on the matter, and seemingly encouraging Jess’ behaviour.

How… convenient.

To get you up to speed (in case you haven’t been watching MAFS, but… pls) during Sunday night’s commitment ceremony, Jess and Dan opted to leave their partners Mick and Tamara respectively, revealing that they had been seeing each other in secret – which is why they had chosen to remain in their failing marriages for so long.

They ended up sending Mick and Tamara home in tears, re-entering the experiment as a new couple, breaking every sacred MAFS rule and p*ssing off the nation.

“Knowing what I know now, I feel like an absolute twit defending Jess because she was quite ruthless in the way she went about what she did,” Martha, who knew about the affair all along, told 9Honey.

“Like I did stress to her ‘There is a right way to do this and I think you should tell Mick and just be clear with Mick because Mick would be so happy if you said you wanted to leave and you were done with him,'” she added.

Did you though?

2. When Jameela Jamil was 19, she rejected a man and got punched in the face.


The Good Place actress and feminist icon Jameela Jamil just shared a downright terrifying story about how she was punched in the face by a man whose advances she rejected.

All when she was just 19 years old.

Speaking to Twitter about her experiences of being aggressively pursued by men, she began by recalling a recent incident in which a man shouted at her after she turned him down.

“Was out at the shops with my friend. Man ogles me. Man then approaches me to give me his number. I explain I have a boyfriend but thank him for the offer. Man then threatens my career, saying I better remember that I rejected him. And then Shouts at me that I’m low class...” she wrote.

A fan pointed out how "gross" it was that he wasn't discouraged by her revealing she had a boyfriend, to which Jameela added the shocking story from her teen years, highlighting the fact that it doesn't matter whether you have an "excuse" or not, and that "being a woman is truly, constantly scary".

3. We’ve found Jessika’s audition tape for Married at First Sight… and it explains so much.


Oh.

We've just watched Jessika Power's audition for Married at First Sight and well, it explains a lot...

The audition tape, which was shown on Channel 9's Talking Married last night, saw Jessika describe herself as "opinionated" and "a bomb thrower".

"I guess guys just go for me cause of how I look," she said in the interview.

"They all do say to me, 'You're the perfect partner', and it's always me that ends it."

Yikes.

She also admitted that she's been prone to lacking empathy in previous relationships.

"I'm not needy, it can put [men] off that I lack a bit of empathy in relationships sometimes and I just think it's ridiculous."

On last night's episode of Married at First Sight, Jessika went on her first official date with Dan after breaking the news of their affair to the other contestants and the experts earlier this week.

4. “I got you this.” Amy Schumer on the ‘whack’ way her husband proposed to her.


Amy Schumer's new Netflix special Amy Schumer: Growing is here and it's filled with the comedian's hilarious musings on her 30s, her pregnancy and married life with her husband Chris Fischer.

Although married life is going swimmingly for the 37-year-old, she admitted during the special that her now-husband's marriage proposal was far from glamorous.

"The proposal was whack," Amy said.

"He proposed to me in the morning. That's like when people in a nursing home get engaged. Not like at sunrise, like I was still asleep. I was sleeping," she continued.

"He just kind of threw the ring box at me and he goes, 'I got you this'," she said.

"And I open it and he goes, 'Do you want me to get down on one knee' And I'm like 'I guess not'. And then I went back to sleep.

During the special, Schumer also shared that her husband is on the autism spectrum.

"I knew from the beginning my husband’s brain was a little different than mine," she said.

"There were some signs early on."

5. Another Married at First Sight contestant has backed Ines' X-rated claims about her affair with Sam.

In case you missed it, Married at First Sight contestants Ines Basic and Sam Ball are in the middle of a very public fight about whether or not they had sex during their fling on the show.

Well, to clarify, Sam said they didn’t have sex, and Ines responded by telling her Instagram followers but also the nation that Sam did something else for four hours.

Then, Sam retaliated by saying, “I would run out of breath or more likely get hungry, tired or bored.”

WHY ARE WE SO INVESTED IN THIS?

Sam claims Ines started the ‘rumour’ (it’s about oral sex, to be clear) because he supposedly refused to have sex with her.

But now Ines has backup.
