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

1. “That’s why I ignored her.” Tash on the real reason she and wife Amanda were cut from the MAFS reunion special.

The Married At First Sight finale was certainly… eventful, to say the least.

But now it turns out there was even more drama that happened behind the scenes between brides Tash and Amanda, which led to them being cut from the reunion special,

Tash told Hit FM’s Krysti & Bodge on Thursday that the producers decided to cut out footage of a fight between her and her ex-wife.

“There was a storyline that was cut because at the girls night, Amanda – when asked where I was – said: ‘I don’t know, probably drunk in a gutter’,” Tash said.

Tash went on to explain she was angry when she heard about Amanda’s comments, especially because the pair had been ‘texting amicably’ the night before.

“That’s why I ignored her at the reunion dinner party, because I didn’t want anything to do with her,” she said

Look, I didn’t get what I came for, but surprisingly I gained much more than I could’ve from the experiment alone… This experience brought my friends that much closer, and it also drove those that didn’t serve my life further away. I stopped having doubts around my self worth, and realised just how incredible I was, even if those within the experiment couldn’t see it. I kept my distance, I watched closely with intent, I spoke when it was relevant, and I walked away, knowing I remained consistently honest throughout. I’ve gained an army of loyal followers, new opportunities and reshaped my perspective on life. Work is no longer something I bury myself in. Instead, I find solace in spending quality time with my closest people. Overall, considering it was a shit experience it sure as hell hasn’t been shit since. Here’s to big things, stay tuned. ???????? #MAFS

The fight was later brought up in front of the experts.

“When we got up on the couch, the experts were like, ‘So, why is there tension between you?’ And I said, ‘well because she said this…,'” Tash explained.

But the scene wasn’t shown because Amanda’s comments never made it to air and the fight wouldn’t have made a lot of sense to us watching at home.

Interestingly, Tash claimed the reason Amanda made the comment in the first place was because there was a rumour going around that Tash was going to walk into the reunion dinner with fellow contestant, Natasha Spencer.

Yep, it turns out there was another rumoured couple swap on our hands (we can barely keep up either).

Despite being a part of multiple Twitter feuds, not only with other celebrities but also defending herself against trolls, Jamil says she speaks out on the platform to create discussion.

Speaking to The Guardian, she said, “I think I’m less annoying in person than I am on Twitter. I live online as a provocateur. Sometimes you have to say things that are going to piss people off in order to create discussion.”

Jamil continued to explain that she knows she has made a few mistakes on the social media platform too.

“The worst I feel is when someone has misconstrued my tone, or I’ve misrepresented myself, and I’ve hurt a group of people by mistake. That burns me to my core. I can’t sleep and I can’t eat.

“I’m happy to be called out. I don’t mind learning in public. I’ve become a better person for it. What I find frustrating is that when you admit you were wrong people seem to attack you more. When I apologise there’s a hysteria of bullying.”

Some weirdo stalker started a viral conspiracy thread on my having munchausens apparently. She thought that because my car accident stories was “different” …. that’s because they were about two separate car accidents 13 years apart. In her rush to bully and drag, she forgot to read… ???? But after a few hours of feeling upset that I’m being gaslit and targeted for harassment… I sort of realized… oh. Ok. Some people have sad, empty lives. And doing this gives them some purpose. And I don’t have to do stuff like this because I have a purpose in @i_weigh and all our beautiful policy change and fights for legislation to protect young people. So now I think all of the accusations are hilarious and I’m starting my own rumors. Write your best rumor about me below!

4. “It totally attacked her lungs.” Carey Hart on Pink’s ‘intense’ coronavirus battle.

Pink’s husband, Carey Hart, has shared just how serious Pink and their three-year-old son, Jameson’s battle with coronavirus really was.

“It was intense,” Hart told SiriusXM’s The Jason Ellis Show on Monday.

“They both got extremely sick. My son probably got the worst of the two of them.”

Hart said the fact this his son contracted the virus, “debunks the whole theory [coronavirus] only hits old people.”

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.❤️

“My wife got it pretty bad, as well,” said the motorcycle racer. “She has preexisting — she has asthma. It totally attacked her lungs and her chest. She was having a hard time breathing.”

Hart went on to explain that his whole family has been on lockdown since he returned from Daytona on March 11. A few days later, Pink and Jameson started showing symptoms.

“I have zero symptoms, my daughter [Wilow] had zero symptoms. Unfortunately, we only had access to a test for my wife.” Hart believes all four of them had the virus even though he and Willow weren’t exhibiting any symptoms.

“We just kind of took the lead on my wife’s test.”

5. Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle is coming to fill the MAFS-shaped hole in your life.

Ever since Married At First Sight wrapped up last week, we’ve spent the last 5732 hours wondering what to do with our lives.

We weirdly find ourselves yearning for the time when our days were consumed by fake marriages, multiple cheating scandals and lots of manufactured drama. Well, luckily we might not need to yearn for much longer.

Enter: Netflix’s wild new dating show Too Hot To Handle.

The show, which is set to arrive on Netflix on April 17, basically sees attractive singles from the US, the UK, Canada, Australia and Ireland living all together in a tropical paradise.

Think MAFS meets Love Island but… trashier.

The trailer for the news series dropped yesterday. And it looks absolutely wild.

But Too Hot To Handle isn’t your ordinary trashy dating show, you see there’s one very important twist.

According to the show’s sassy artificial intelligence device named Lana, if the contestants are seen hooking up they will lose money from their eventual cash prize.

“There are conditions to your stay here: no kissing or sex of any kind,” she says.
