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

1. “We did end up hooking up”: MAFS’ Jonethen claims he had a thing with KC. After the show.

Oh wow, this is where MAFS drama gets complicated. But were things really ever simple with this lot?

So basically, earlier this week, KC Osborne announced that she and fellow castmate, Michael Goonan, are indeed dating. And have been for the past five weeks.

Jonethen was married to Connie Crayden on the show (we know, this is all very confusing) but those two ended while the cameras were still rolling. And now, during an Instagram Live, he has announced that he and KC did, in fact, get together.

“The rumours about KC and I hooking up while filming, we didn’t hook up, we had a date. But we did end up hooking up after the show,” the 27-year-old FIFO worker revealed.


And not only that, Connie confirmed it too.

During a radio interview last month she said, “There was an almost couple swap between KC and Jonny that never came to air.

“There was a little something going on there, I don’t know the full extent of it though.”

Oh my.

Listen to The Spill, Mamamia’s daily entertainment podcast. In today’s episode, co-hosts Kee Reece and Laura Brodnik take you through all the movies and TV shows you should be watching this long weekend. Post continues below. 

2. Tiger King’s Carole Baskin has finally spoken. And she’s maaaad.

Carole Baskin is not happy. And why should she be?

All she wanted to do was to shed a light on the cruelties of private big cat breeding. But no. Tiger King just had to go and paint her as a possible villain.

The bizarre and hugely popular Netflix documentary series, presented rumours that Baskin murdered her millionaire ex-husband, John Lewis, and fed his remains to the tigers at her Big Cat Rescue animal sanctuary.

After a few weeks avoiding the media, Baskin has responded in her first interview since the series launched last month.

Sharing her thoughts with the Tampa Bay Times, Baskin explained that she was depicted inaccurately throughout the series and now lives in constant fear as drones circle her home.

“I just feel so angry that people have totally missed the point. And the point is these cubs are being abused and exploited and the public is enabling that," said Baskin.

“There’s almost no way to describe the intensity of the feeling of betrayal,” her husband Howard Baskin added.

Since filming, Baskin has noticed dozens of people at their front gates, drones flying above their home and she has been sent countless threatening messages too.


Luckily, Big Cast Rescue closed four days before the release of Tiger King, due to the coronavirus outbreak.

In response to the Netflix series, Baskin also released a statement on her Big Cat Rescue website.

It wrote, “(Big Cat Rescue) provides natural vegetation, pools, added enrichment. From Tiger King, you would not recognise this as the place where our ex-circus tiger from Peru, Hoover, stepped through the woods and into the lake and began to swim for the first time in his life; such scenes were not shown.”

3. ‘This is the scariest thing I’ve ever been through’: Pink shares how she and her son are coping after their COVID-19 diagnoses.

American singer and songwriter Pink has opened up about testing positive to COVID-19, one week after first announcing her diagnosis on Instagram.

The performing artist, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, spoke to Ellen DeGeneres via video chat for an upcoming episode of The Ellen Show, to reveal how she and her three-year-old son Jameson are coping with their illness.

Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive. My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative. It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible. This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities. In an effort to support the healthcare professionals who are battling on the frontlines every day, I am donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center. Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund. THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home.❤️

"We're doing alright. We're doing OK this week," the 40-year-old said. "I don't even know what day it is but this is a better week than the last previous ones have been for our little household."

"It was just all over the place," she continued. "Every day was some new symptom and then his fever stayed, it didn't go, and then it started going up and up and up and at one point he was at 103F [39.4C]."

"It was terrifying," she added. "This is the scariest thing I've ever, ever been through in my whole life."

The 'So What' singer also responded to the backlash she received over the fact that she was able to obtain a test, despite a shortage in the United States.

"I would say you should be angry that I can get a test and you can’t," she admitted. "But being angry at me is not going to help anything, it’s not going to solve the issue of the fact that you can’t get your hands on a test...

"We should work together to try and change that."


4. North West, please. Mummy is trying to do a makeup tutorial for people who can’t leave the house.

Kim Kardashian West's kids are giving her the s***s just as much as yours are.

I mean, gosh. The poor woman just wanted to do a makeup tutorial for her 165 million Instagram followers who can't leave the house. But no. North West had to act like... well, like a six-year-old in a pandemic, and ask if she could wash her hands.

"I'm hiding in the guest room, you guys," the reality TV star/beauty entrepreneur/documentary maker said, clutching her KKW Beauty products (label to the camera. Naturally.). "I'm hiding in the guest room because my kids will not leave me alone."


Cue a "Hey, that's mean!" from the lingering child.

"North, can I please just do my little tutorial?" Kim pleaded. "It's all I want to do. One little fun thing for myself."

Yes, sweetie. Really. The people need to know how to achieve a flawless, natural look with Mummy's Classic Shimmers Blush Palette.

Looking half-decent on Zoom meetings is all we have right now.

5. Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are having a baby. And hang on a minute...


We just discovered our favourite celebrity couple to ever exist, and we’re only sorry we weren’t aware of them earlier.

Harry Potter star Rupert Grint is expecting his first child with long-term girlfriend Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging actor Georgia Groome and… how did we not even know they were dating?

News broke on Saturday that Georgia is pregnant after images emerged of them going grocery shopping while in lockdown in London, in which the 28-year-old has a very visible baby bump.

Their representatives then confirmed the news in a statement: “Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome are excited to announce they are expecting a baby and would please ask for privacy at this time.”

In case this is the first time you're learning of the couple's existence, we put together a few things we (now) know about Rupert Grint and Georgia Groome’s relationship.
