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

1. “The kiss was magical.” MAFS’ Dan has opened up about his affair with Jessika.

Just two weeks on from Sam and Ines’ controversial cheating scandal on Married At First Sight, there’s been yet another wife swap.

On last night’s episode of the show, Jessika, who is ‘married’ to Mick on the show, cheated on her husband with intruder Dan at the dinner party.

Now, speaking to 9 Honey, Dan has opened up about his controversial affair with Jessika.

Things... escalated.

"The kiss was the start of something special but I had to keep my cards close to my chest 'cause I didn't want to make a decision until I felt like she felt the same way," he admitted.

"The first kiss with Jess was magical. It just felt right and it was raining, to my memory, which made it that of a movie scene."

It seems Jessika and Dan's kiss at the dinner party wasn't a one off either...

Earlier this month, the pair were photographed kissing on the Gold Coast in photos published by New Idea magazine on Monday.

2. Taylor Swift just unleashed on Kim Kardashian and seriously, how long has this feud been going now?

It may have been a while since we last heard about it but the Kim Kardashian/Taylor Swift feud is back in the spotlight once again.

Speaking to Elle in a new interview, Taylor called out the bullying that went down at the time.

"A few years ago, someone started an online hate campaign by calling me a snake on the internet," Taylor told the magazine.

"The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than I’ve ever felt in my life, but I can’t tell you how hard I had to keep from laughing every time my 63-foot inflatable cobra named Karyn appeared onstage in front of 60,000 screaming fans" she continued.

"It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us, but maybe all I’ll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it and thrive in spite of it."

Just in case you forgot, Kim called Taylor a snake in a Snapchat video following a highly-publicised feud between the pair over Kanye West's song 'Famous', which involved Kanye rapping "I made that b*tch famous" in reference to the pop singer.

According to Kanye, he ran the lyrics by Taylor before the song's release, but Taylor disagreed, driving Kanye to release audio of their phone conversation to the public.

3. The “wise words” Billy’s mum told Susie that we didn’t get to see on Married at First Sight.

There's really no fooling a mum.

Even on over-produced reality TV.

This week on MAFS, the husbands and wives met the parents, and in Billy and Susie's situation, it was pretty awkward given she'd just almost murdered him on a beach for telling a white lie about the last time he went surfing.

But while Billy attempted to "dampen" the situation when discussing his, well, terrifying match Susie, with his mum, she was not buying it.

Speaking to 9Honey, they barista who may or may not have Splenda in his cupboard, admits his mum clocked that all was not well when she met aged care worker Susie.

"I think my mum kind of clued on a little bit but at the same time I dampened the situation to her," he told the website. "But I'm a man and I can deal with my own problems. I don't need my mother getting worried about my relationships. And also, my mother would have ripped Susie's head off if she knew what she was doing."

While Billy said lying to his mum about the toxic relationship he'd found himself was difficult, he added that she offered her own words of advice to Susie during the visit.

"It was really, really hard for me to say everything's OK, it's not that bad. But my mum did catch on a little and gave Susie some wise words about how to treat me kindly," he said. "That I'm only gonna be a gentleman for so long and then I'm gonna go, you know, or I'm gonna lose it really. So, she was pretty on point with her thoughts."

Ahh, nothing like a thinly veiled threat from a mum to set a misbehaving partner straight, right?

4. Khloe Kardashian shares series of emotional Instagram posts following the Tristan/Jordyn scandal.

The Tristan/Jordyn cheating scandal may never end.

We might still be talking about it when we're old and grey, and, look, we're not exactly complaining.

The latest?

Not even a week after the reality star called Jordyn Woods a liar after her interview with Jada Pinkett Smith, she's shared some pretty emo poetry on her Instagram, and it looks like she's focused on moving on from it all.

(Aw, does this mean we have to as well?)

Though she initially lashed out at Woods for kissing Tristan Thompson, who Kardashian shares daughter True with, she also tweeted that Tristan is equally to blame.

But now, it looks like she's taking the next steps in recovering from the entire situation.

...And by that we mean posting a bunch of pretty telling stuff to her Insta stories.

The first poem she posted this week, titled 'The Truth About Your Heart', speaks about the heart's ability to heal itself, while the second, shorter poem seems to mourn a lost relationship, suggesting she's well and truly turned her back on Tristan and his cheating ways. (Finally).

She also shared a picture of the moon, captioned, "People have a lot to say about lives they've never lived."

And we don't... get it.

Do we still hate Jordyn or no?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

5. Lisa Wilkinson just had the greatest dig at her former co-host Karl Stefanovic.

Lisa Wilkinson has taken an epic jab at her former Today co-host Karl Stefanovic.

She made fun of Stefanovic’s infamous ‘drunk’ broadcast the morning after the Logies in 2009, where he appeared looking a little… off, while slurring his words and gushing over how pretty Wilkinson looked at the awards the night before.

Although awkward to watch, the incident did little to harm Stefanovic’s career. In fact, he went on to win the Gold Logie just two years later.

To find out exactly what Lisa said, check out our earlier post here.
