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


1. ‘There was a crucial clue last night.’ MAFS’ Michael just hinted Stacey cheated on him.

After last night’s messy MAFS episode, Michael has hinted that his on-screen wife Stacey did, in fact, cheat on him.

Appearing on Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam & Browny earlier today, Michael was asked when he thought everything went wrong between himself and Stacey.

“There was a very crucial little hint that was said last night and that’s the little clue!” said Michael.

Which we all know is a reference to Vanessa’s claim that Stacey cheated on him.

Michael also pointed out how unfair Stacey’s supposed cheating would be after he has been “torn apart” by his fellow contestants for hooking up with Hayley.

“Imagine if that [Stacey cheating] was true,” he said.

“Imagine a guy that’s literally getting been torn apart every single week for a kissing allegation, changing his whole life, running around and jumping over hoops for this girl… I’ve changed everything, I’ve literally become a saint you know.”

We’re not too sure about the ‘saint’ part. But hopefully, we find out more about this apparent cheating scandal when Married At First Sight returns tonight at 7:30 pm on Nine.

2. Oh. Taylor Swift subtly responded to the new Kimye phone call leak.

Well… the Taylor Swift and Kanye West saga continues.

Yesterday, the full phone conversation of the singers discussing Kanye’s ‘Famous’ song was leaked online,  suggesting that Taylor was telling the truth about never hearing some of the final lyrics. And now it appears Taylor has responded to the revelation in a very subtle way.

How you might ask?

Well, according to the Mail, the 30-year-old has liked a number of Tumblr posts that side with her in the original 2016 feud between herself, Kanye and Kim Kardashian.


“Taylor told the truth moodboard,” one of the posts read, which Taylor apparently liked.

She also liked a post that read, “Who was telling the truth the entire time?” alongside a picture of herself.

Now we'll just have to wait to see if Kanye responds... only we're thinking he won't be so subtle.

Listen to Mamamia's daily entertainment podcast, The Spill, where hosts Laura Brodnik and Kee Reece chat about Taylor, Kanye and that ‘Famous’ call. Post continues after podcast. 


3. After 'taking her Instagram back from Nine', MAFS' Stacey uploaded proof she's able to practise law.

After Married at First Sight contestant, Hayley Vernon, questioned whether Stacey Hampton was actually a lawyer, the 27-year-old Adelaide woman has proven her accreditation on her Instagram.

For those who didn't watch last night's reunion special, this season's past brides and grooms returned to the show, and during a fight between the two brides, Hayley accused Stacey of lying about being a lawyer.

"Where did you get your law degree? Out of a cereal box? You're 25 and have had two kids. Have you practised? Please," she said.

"You're not a lawyer, you've just studied."

Now, Stacey has rebutted Hayley's argument with evidence.

"I've taken my Instagram back from Nine. I refuse to be defamed and have my account allowed to be hacked and used to produce stories to benefit others," she wrote, posting on her Instagram stories.

She went on to post photos of her Bachelor of Laws from the University of South Australia from August 2017, a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice from The College of Law in April 2019, and confirmation of her ability practice as a Barrister and Solicitor of the Court by the Supreme Court of South Australia.

However, according to The University of Adelaide, for Stacey to be able to practise law and give legal advice, she would still be required to apply for a practising certificate and indemnity insurance.

As it currently stands, we don't know if she has either of these documents.

4. "I don't give a f**k about your freedom." Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner may've just taken a jab at Evangeline Lilly.

Sophie Turner has some words for people who aren't social distancing - and we stand by her whole-heartedly.

Appearing on an Instagram Live with her husband, Joe Jonas, she encouraged her fans to "stay inside," admonishing people who weren't.

“Stay inside, don’t be f—ing stupid, even if you count your freedom over — I don’t know, what is it — your health,” she said.

"I don’t give a f*** about your freedom. You could be infecting other people, other vulnerable people around you, by doing this. So stay inside, guys. It’s not cool and it’s not big and it’s not clever. And that’s the tea."


Although the Game of Thrones star didn't call out anybody specifically, fans think she was referencing Marvel actress, Evangeline Lilly.

On Tuesday, the 40-year-old mum-of-two posted on Instagram that she would still be sending her children to "gymnastics camp," ignoring the US' social distancing measures which asked people to stay in their homes and avoid social gatherings of 10 or more people.


Tagging her post #morningtea (again, another reference in Turner's roast), Lilly wrote: "Just dropped my kids off at gymnastics camp. They all washed their hands before going in. They are playing and laughing.


Fellow celebrity Vanessa Hudgens was also critical of social distancing guidelines, which have been recommended to #flattenthecurve and lower the amount of people who are infected at the same time.

"It's a virus, I get it. Like, I respect it. But at the same time, like, even if everybody gets it, like, yeah, people are gonna die, which is terrible but, like, inevitable?" she said in an Instagram Live, earlier last week.

The 31-year-old has since apologised for her words, stating that they've been 'taken out of context.'

"I realised some of my comments are being taken out of context," she wrote on Twitter.

"It's a crazy time. It's a crazy, crazy time and I am at home and in lockdown, and I hope that's what you guys are doing too, in full quarantine and staying safe and sane. Yeah, don't take this situation lightly — by any means."


5. 'There was almost a couple swap.' Connie just shared Jonethen and KC hooked up during MAFS.

Holy mother of cheating scandals.

During Sunday night’s episode of Married At First Sight, Vanessa teased another cheating scandal apart from Michael and Hayley and pop the kettle on because Connie has tea.

This morning on radio with Hit 96.9 Goulburn Valley Connie confirmed her (fake) husband Jonethen hooked up with another (fake) bride during the experiment and excuse us, Channel Nine, why did we not see this?

“There was an almost couple swap between KC and Jonny that never came to air,” Connie told hosts Josiah and Herbie.

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

According to Connie, Jonny and KC kissed but it didn’t bother her all that much at the time.

“This guy had written leave three times. I don’t really feel like I was in a position to be upset or jealous. I was just like, ‘Yeah, cool’.” she said.

She added that the reason he asked to ‘leave’ the experiment three times “could be” because he was hooking up with KC on the side.

She also said she doesn't know why the almost-couple swap didn't air because "I thought it would have been good TV drama" and SAME CONNIE, SAME.
