1. Uh, so, apparently Married At First Sight’s Ashley said her husband Troy is a ‘paid actor’.

Remember when we thought that Troy was going to be our ray of hope in the marital sh*t fight that is Married at First Sight?

Well… boy, were we wrong.

According to The Daily Mail, Married at First Sight fan, Pennie Looker, met Ash on a Virgin Australia flight. Ash as we know is an air hostess. And she was more than happy to spill ALLL the secrets… which is exactly what we want.


“(Ashley) said Troy didn’t apply for the show but was selected via an agency,” she wrote.

“Ashley said they weren’t going to get rid of a main “character” early, so she had to play the game.”

In reality, this is not really news, because who actually pats people on the head like that, and who FORGETS TO TELL THEIR TV WIFE THAT THEIR MUM IS A COELIAC???

Either Troy is the weirdest man alive or someone at a talent agency has a lot to answer for.

2. Did Taylor Swift just copy a world-famous perfume ad in her new music video?

T-Swizzle’s latest music video just dropped and some people are already calling copycat.

The clip for Delicate sees the singer dressed in a fancy gown at a posh event, tire of her surroundings before letting loose and dancing crazily, making faces.

Some fans (*cough* haters) have pointed out that there’s a striking resemblance to a well-known perfume ad.

Spike Jonze’s 2016 short film for Kenzo also features a woman, dressed to the nines, letting loose and dancing bizarrely, making faces at a well-to-do event.

“The new @taylorswift13 Delicate music video is such an insanely blatant copy/rip-off of the Spike Jonze Kenzo World commercial. The setting, colour palette, choreography, everything,” tweeted one angry fan.

Others shared side by side shots of both videos.

We shall let you decide. Watch the Kenzo ad here, and Taylor’s new video here.

We need to talk about Taylor Swift’s new image because we’re not sure it’s a positive one. The Mamamia Out Loud team discuss. Post continues after audio.

3. Serena Williams is launching a cosmetics line because is there anything this woman can’t do?

In further proof that Serena Williams is real-life Wonder Woman, the tennis legend has announced she’s launching her own makeup line.

According to TMZ, Williams filed to trademark the name ANERES – that’s ‘Serena’ spelled backwards – in late January.

It’s official. My comeback is here. This Thursday I will start playing tennis again professionally for the first time since giving birth to my daughter. This whole month I am playing tournaments in California and Florida- both my home states. Thursday, the day I play my very first match, marks international women’s day. My comeback could not have come on a better day and I decided I wanted to do something different let you all be apart of my long journey back (if you want of course!!) So I created my Serena Gold toned “S” pin. When I am playing you can wear it and show support not only from me but also for my charity which supports the Yetunde Price Resource center. I want this gold “S” mean something special to you personally. What is one S word in your life that means something to you? Mine is Strong and Sure! So when I wear my “S” pin I am representing Strength, and Sureness. What would your “S” mean? They are for now only available for my fans that come see my at Indian wells, and Miami starting Wednesday as well as Thursday when I play!! Sooooo if you are watching me stop by the Serena booth to grab a “S” pin. Post pics of you wearing your “S” and tag me! Thanks for the support I look forward to seeing you out there!!

The Cut reports that according to the U.S Patent and Trademark Office, that means her range can include skincare, cosmetics, makeup kits, colognes and perfumes, lotions, and body washes.

Now, here’s the thing – she hasn’t actually confirmed what she’s doing or even that she’s bringing out her own cosmetics line.

But with all the pieces in the puzzle we have so far – and the staggering success of Rihanna’s Fenty range – you can bet it’s looking pretty likely.

Not to mention the fact that the tennis champ has always been a fan of beauty and is a qualified nail technician.

Our wallets await your next move, Serena.

4. Fiona O’Loughlin’s thoughts on celebrity psychic John Edwards are gloriously candid.

Now that she’s out of the jungle and back into the land of running water and processed food, comedian Fiona O’Loughlin is more than happy to get very honest about her fellow camp mates.

Getting into the nitty-gritty while speaking to hit105’s Stav, Abby and Matt she spoke very candidly about who she got along with and who she really didn’t.

There were was the unsurprising – like the fact that didn’t like former One Nation politician David Oldfield.

“I won’t be ever going out of my way — in fact I’d cross the road — before I’d ever be in contact with David Oldfield again,” she said.

However, when it came to what she thought about camp-fire physchic John Edward, she did not hold back, calling his readings a “performance.”

“I just think it’s an odd thing to do for a living, to charge people to tell them … personally, I don’t think the future’s ours to see,” she said.

“What makes me always get the giggles with that type of psychic is when he says, ‘I’m hearing a ‘J’ name …’ Like, if they’re going to come all the way from the other side, why wouldn’t they just give you their first name and their last name?

“Why are spirits just dropping these weird hints and directing him to one specific area of the room?

“Then he’d look at me and say, ‘You’re grandmother’s passed.’ Well of course she has — I’m 54, you idiot.”

5. Inside the curious and budding feud between Rob Mills and Kyle and Jackie O.

Will you accept this rose? The highvis bachelor ????#thebachelor #highvis #dapper

A post shared by Rob Mills (@robmillsymills) on

Celebrity feuds are a tangled webs of he-said, she-said and they-said tidbits gathered over many moons of built-up gossip.

And bloody hell, we shamelessly love them.

In the latest installment of the odd feud between ex-Australian idol Rob Mills, and radio duo Kyle and Jackie O, words were exchanged at the Book of Mormon. 

KIIS FM reporter Pete Deppeler caught the brunt of it. The word “loser” was said (harsh) and then Millsy claimed that he didn’t know who Kyle and Jackie O were (probably not true).

You can catch up on all the delicious drama right over here.

This episode of Mamamia Out Loud: Everyone Has A Get Off Scream, Mia, Rachel and Jessie talk about the viral sex column about masturbating after sex, Swedish death cleaning and just not being a morning person. It’s a thing.
