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

1. Oh. The Bachelor’s Abbie has responded to leaked footage of her ‘dissing’ Matt.

While we’ve all been recovering from last night’s heartbreaking episode of The Bachelor, Abbie has been busy responding to a leaked video that shows her supposedly dissing Matt.

According to the Daily Mail, Abbie Chatfield’s sister shared a video on Instagram from what appears to be a Bachie viewing party, where Abbie was watching the first episode of the season.

In the video, Abbie is seen making a disgusted looking face at the TV screen, adding: “That’s so cringe.”

It’s pretty unclear if she was talking about Matt or herself and why she made the face, but the video was soon taken down from her sister’s Instagram, possibly at the request of Channel 10, the Daily Mail reports.

But now Abbie has come forward insisting her comments weren’t about Matt at all.

‘The footage referred to is from a viewing party for episode one. The ‘cringe’ comment was in relation to seeing myself on television for the first time and the Gemini joke, and has nothing to do with Matt,” she told the Daily Mail.

It’s understandable, having to watch back a clip of yourself proudly and unnecessarily telling the world that you’re a Gemini would make any of us feel a bit awkward.

2. “It was pretty painful.” Renee Zellweger on hearing strangers talking about her face.

It’s never a nice feeling to hear someone talk badly about you, especially when it’s behind your back while you’re on a train.

Well, that’s exactly what happened to Bridget Jones star, Renee Zellweger back in 2014.

Zellweger recently recalled the “painful” experience when she heard a man and two women discussing her “silly” face while she was travelling in London.

“They were talking about Hollywood and how Hollywood ladies are so silly, especially that Renee Zellweger,” she told SiriusXM.

The actress overheard the three strangers saying, “‘How could she do that? Why would she go and have surgery on her face like we wouldn’t know? She doesn’t look like herself, and you can’t just do that where you go and don’t look like yourself.”

Zellweger still remembers standing up and waiting for the train door to open while the man was still “talking about how stupid I am.”

He eventually clued on and looked up at Zellweger saying, “Oh God, you’re not – you are! Oh my God, but you look just like yourself!” She replied, “Yeah, it’s funny how that works, isn’t it?”

Unfortunately, Zellweger is no stranger to hearing people talk about her appearance after plastic surgery rumours about her started in 2014 when she looked different stepping out on the red carpet.

But Zellweger tries to stay positive and not focus on all the comments and rumours.

"It’s only momentarily where you go, 'Jeez, wow, that’s pretty painful'. But I don’t live in that."


"It just visits my life here and there and I’m not really privy on that stuff until someone sends it to me. I don’t seek it out."

3. Kim Kardashian's shapewear line just made $2.9 million in minutes and woah.

In the time it took you to read this sentence, Kim Kardashian has made tens of thousands of dollars.

No, really.

Finally launching her much-anticipated shapewear line, SKIMS Solutions on Tuesday, TMZ reported that the 38-year-old Kardashian made $A2.9 million in minutes, with nearly all her inventory selling out.

Unlike other shapewear lines, SKIMS Solutions promised an inclusive colour and size range which spanned across XXS to 5XL, all at a price point that cost consumers under $A150.

The social media and reality TV star later thanked fans on her Instagram page, writing: "Thank you to everyone who supported our @skims launch day yesterday, it was beyond what I could have imagined and I’m so incredibly thankful!"

"For anyone that didn’t have a chance to shop yesterday, we still have some of the shapewear still in stock in colours Onyx, Umber and Oxide and many of my must have underwear and bra essentials that are perfect everyday basics."

Kim originally announced this endeavour in June this year, however it was initially called Kimono and she was accused of culturally appropriating the traditional Japanese garment.


“My fans and followers are a huge inspiration to me – I’m always listening to their feedback and opinions, and am so grateful they shared their ideas for a new brand name,” she wrote, in a statement on her Instagram.

"After much thought and consideration, I’m excited to announce the launch of @SKIMS Solutionwear™ coming September 10. I love the idea that the pieces will be the closest thing to someone’s skin, skimming with amazingly soft and supportive fabrics which accentuate the best parts of our bodies."

4. Maddox Jolie-Pitt has opened up about his relationship with his father, Brad Pitt.

It's long been surmised that Maddox Jolie-Pitt has been estranged from his father, Brad Pitt, however the teenager has publicly commented on their relationship for the first time.

According to Page Six, a video obtained by In Touch Weekly shows the 18-year-old being asked whether Pitt would be visiting during his time studying biochemistry at Yonsei University in South Korea.

In response, he said: “I don’t know about that [or] what’s happening”.

When asked whether he had ceased to have a relationship with his adopted father, he responded saying: “Well, whatever happens, happens.”

In September 2016, TMZ reported that Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, after him and Maddox were involved in an in-flight altercation which allegedly resulted in Pitt hitting Maddox.

The publication quoted sources which stated that Jolie had become "'fed up' with Brad's consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is "an anger problem," [she] felt it [had become] dangerous for the children".


5. "We're too different." The Bachelor's Elly Miles on why Matt Agnew really sent her home.

Elly Miles, 24, was the latest contestant to leave the Bachelor mansion and we are not okay.

Despite Matt choosing to spend extra time with her after a group date all about figuring out who he had the strongest connection with, he contradicted precisely everything we knew to be true and told her he had stronger connections with the four remaining women.

Speaking to Mamamia, Elly said she hadn’t received any clarification from the Bach about his decision, but she considered it to be more about their differences than because she vocalised her concerns about Abbie.

“I think Matt tapped out when I told him I wanted chooks,” she joked. “I’d like to think it wasn’t [due to the talk about Abbie] because I didn’t get that vibe off Matt.

“The day that I gave him that flanno [at the cocktail party], there was a part that didn’t make it to air where we were talking about our feelings and what not and I opened up a bit about being scared that I’d get all the way to the end and it wouldn’t be me because we were too different.
