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

1. Oh. It seems MAFS’ Tash Herz’ new GF Madison Hewitt just took a jab at Amanda Micallef.

Well.

Married at First Sight‘s Tash Herz and Amanda Micallef may have appeared to go their separate ways on good terms, but things between the pair may not be as… diplomatic as what we saw on TV.

31-year-old Herz went public with her new girlfriend, Madison Hewitt, after she and Micallef split on the reality show. The pair have shared loved up photos on Instagram together and have been spotted kissing.

Now, Hewitt has shared an Instagram story that some fans suspect is aimed towards Micallef…

Hewitt captioned the pic: "This reminds me of someone... I just can't put my finger on it...."

"#Exwife" appeared in small text in the bottom corner.

People were quick to link the picture to strength coach, Amanda Micallef, who has been known to wear a strength belt.

In her first interview since announcing the news, Katy shared with SiriusXM that she was looking for a way to announce it, as she was running out of time.

"Honestly, I was getting way too fat to hide it, so I was like, ‘Well, I think this song would be a great reveal! Let’s start there’," she told SiriusXM's Mikey Piff.

"It wasn’t an accident," she said. "I’m so grateful for everything that I have been able to do and achieve, all the goals I’ve been able to check off my list, the life I’ve lived thus far.

"I’ve just been trying to create this space in my own life where I’m not running myself too ragged and creating space for something new to happen like this.

"We’re both looking forward to this new interval of life and sharing this. That’s kind of how it happens."

3. "Stand for what is right." Meghan Markle gave a speech on IWD and yes, it was very empowering.

Meghan Markle has celebrated International Women's Day by speaking to a high school in England and yes, it was amazing.

The Duchess of Sussex was back in England to conclude royal duties, which included a stop at Robert Clack Upper School in East London to speak at their International Women's Day assembly.

"When we thought about what I wanted to do for International Women’s Day this year, for me it was incredibly important to be with the women of our future," she said.

"And that is all of the young women here, as well as the young men who play a very large part in this. Specifically coming to your school made a lot of sense for me because of this social justice and the impact that it’s rooted in."

She spoke to over 700 students between the ages of 11 and 18, and encouraged men to stand for what is right.

"Continue to value and appreciate the women in your lives, and also set the example for some men who are not seeing it that same way.

"You have your mothers, sisters, girlfriends, friends in your life – protect them. Make sure that they are feeling valued and safe. Let’s all rally together to make International Women’s Day something that is not just on Sunday – but frankly, feels like every day of the year."

4. The Bachelorette's Ali Oetjen released her debut single and now she's being compared to Kylie Minogue. Yes, really.

Two years after finding love on season four of The Bachelorette, Ali Oetjen has released her first-ever single.

Ali dropped her song  'Never Knew Love Like This Before', a pop version of the '80s hit from American RnB singer, Stephanie Mills, a few days ago. And she's already being compared to Aussie pop icon, Kylie Minogue.

Yes, really.

"I think people are saying that the song sounds like Kylie Minogue is singing, because they can't mean that I sound like Kylie Minogue," Ali told 9Honey Celebrity.

"She is the ultimate pop diva so I'm so humbled to be compared to her. She has all the moves and she's a little pocket rocket ... She's a good Aussie role model for women."

A post shared by ALI WELLNESS ???????? (@alioetjen) on

And while it may seem like the song is a nod to her Bachie days, Ali says the message of the song is all about self-love.

"I've never been at a point in my life where I'm so comfortable and happy, and want to inspire other women about self-love as well," she told the publication.

"The song just sums up exactly how I'm feeling about myself and also my love life. I'm in a really good relationship at the moment."

Well, we know what we'll be listening to during tomorrow's commute.

5. "Amber’s face is EVERYTHING." Just all the best reactions to the Love is Blind reunion.

Warning: This post definitely contains spoilers for Love Is Blind.

Well.

Take. A. Seat.

The reunion of Love Is Blind has entered our lives and served us a delicious dose of tea. And it’s spicy.

Yes. Who would have thought, that a show whose premise requires participants to essentially fall in love with a stranger in three days and then, for reasons never explained, become engaged before they are allowed to see each other, would end in broken hearts.

At the finale, Jessica said no to Mark – basically because he is not, and will never be, Barnett – and also, did you know she’s 10 years older than him? Damien expressed to Giannina that moodiness is too much, causing her to quite literally… sprint away. Oh and Kelly left behind unsuspecting Kenny, breaking hearts everywhere. On the bright side, Barnett decided he didn’t mind marrying Amber and her unpaid debt, and everyone’s favourites Lauren and Cameron continued to be a beacon of light.

During the reunion, we discovered that Lauren and Cameron continue to love and adore each other, and Barnett and Amber – surprisingly – aren’t doing too badly either. In fact, they’ve made their relationship work for over a year now. Giannina and Damian are dating again, and Kelly wanted to rekindle her romance with Kenny after filming, yet Kenny is dating someone else. As for Carlton and Diamond, it remains a mess.

There are precisely 3673 tweets that perfectly sum up the finale. And yes, we obviously included them all.
