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

1. Jackie O is set to be the next Bachelorette, according to Kyle Sandilands.

It’s literally been a minute since we found out the winner of The Bachelor 2019, and names for Australia’s 2020 Bachelorette have already been thrown around.

Singer and actress Lindsay Lohan has put forward radio host, Jackie O, 44, and it’s a move that’s been backed by her co-host Kyle Sandilands.

“I just was wondering, since Jackie O is single and all, why doesn’t she be the next Bachelorette?” she said on KissFM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show.

Although Jackie laughed it off, Kyle said it’s an option that’s very much on Channel 10’s radar.

“You know what Lindsay, we had a lunch with Channel 10 the other day and they brought that up. I said, “YES!” he said.

“I’m just rooting for you [Jackie O], I think you should [be the next Bachelorette] because you deserve the best.”

Alas Jackie, was more hesitant.

The Masked Singer judge is currently single, after splitting with her former husband Lee Henderson, after 15 years of marriage. Together, they share an eight-year-old daughter, Catalina Mae Henderson, who they continue to amicably co-parent.

“It’s not something that happened overnight for us … We wanted to keep that private for as long as we possibly could. A separation is never easy so I feel lucky that we were able to get through that period of time dealing with it on our own,” she said on radio after publicly announcing their separation.

“It’s not a decision we took lightly at all. Lee and I have been so lucky that our separation has been extremely amicable.”

2. Demi Moore has written a tell-all book detailing how she regrets having threesomes with Ashton Kutcher.

GOSSIP PLZ.

Demi Moore is penning a memoir Inside Out and she’s talking about her former marriage to Ashton Kutcher.

According to Radar, the 56-year-old has written about the two threesomes her and Kutcher had during their marriage, stating that she regrets them.

“I wanted to show him how great and fun I could be,” she writes.

“Because we had brought a third party into our relationship, Ashton said, that blurred the lines and, to some extent, justified what he’d done.”

The Ghost actress will also be writing about her miscarriage, and relapse into drinking, which happened after her separation. She has, however, specified to The New York Times, she will not be pointing fingers or assigning blame.

"I’m definitely not interested in blaming anyone [in the book],” she said.

“It’s a waste of energy.”

Moore began dating Kutcher in 2003, and despite their 15-year age difference, their marriage lasted from 2005 to 2012.

3. Taylor Swift has given an interview about the demise of her Girl Squad saying it “hit me like a ton of bricks.”

From 2014 to 2016, Taylor Swift and her girl squad of powerhouse women dominated the headlines.

The curated selection of actresses, models, sports stars and musicians shared Instagram posts, concerts and featured the likes of Martha Hunt, Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Lily Aldridge, Lorde, Selena Gomez and Serena Williams, amongst others.

Now, three years later, it seems like the group has well and truly disbanded, with no explanation as to why.

Until now.

Speaking to Rolling Stone in a cover interview, the 29-year-old said she never expected their friendship to end.

"Holy sh*t, that hit me like a ton of bricks. I was like, 'Oh, this did not go the way that I thought it was going to go,'" she said.

"I thought it was going to be we can still stick together, just like men are allowed to do."

While Swift was seen and photographed with Lorde, Hunt, and Hadid just this year, the Lover singer is no longer as public with her relationships, but she goes on to say she never understood why there was so much (manufactured) attention of a feud within her 'girl squad'.

"The patriarchy allows men to have bro packs. If you’re a male artist, there’s an understanding that you have respect for your counterparts," she continued.

"It’s assumed that we hate each other. Even if we’re smiling and photographed together with our arms around each other, it’s assumed there’s a knife in our pocket."

4. Survivor star Luke Toki has closed down his GoFundMe page because he “didn’t think it was fair to keep going.”

Actress, Pia Miranda officially might have won the 2019 Survivor crown, but it was father-of-three, Luke Toki was the champion who captured Australia's heart.

Throughout his time on the show, the 30-year-old FIFO worker was adamant on winning the $500,000 prize money so he could support his wife and three children who have special needs.

His sons, Lennox, eight, and Nate, five, are both on the autism spectrum, and his six-month-old daughter has been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.

While Toki only made it to the top four, a GoFundMe page was started in honour of the young dad, with over 16,000 donations made, totalling to $550,460, $50,000 over the Survivor prize pool.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph's Confidential, Toki said he made the choice to close the GoFundMe page.

“We asked the guy that started it to close it because we didn’t think it was fair to keep going,” he said.

“The last two days hasn’t just affected me, my wife is also struggling to comprehend what it means for us.

“The whole trajectory of our life is changing and it is a weird one to process.”

Toki said the $500,000 will go towards his mortgage, and paying for his kid's medical bills, and the remainder will be donated to charity.

“I would love to be able to message everyone who donated to say thanks but thanks doesn’t seem like enough. The only way I can repay people is to make sure we spend the money right.”

5. "Stop saying we aren't together." Matt and Chelsie on those 'Blake Garvey' rumours.

After four months of secrecy and hidden rendezvous, bachelor Matt Agnew and his winner Chelsie McLeod can finally be open about their relationship.

Today marked many simple firsts for the couple, like the first time they could walk down the street together.

But a coincidence just last weekend almost blew their cover, days before The Bachelor finale aired, confirming that Matt had picked her over runner-up Abbie Chatfield.

The pair, who both live in Melbourne, told Mamamia they have done their digging and found a surprising lack of mutual friends, even though they frequent so many of the same places.

Then last weekend they were both invited to separate parties… at the same venue.

Considering no one could know they were together this posed a wee bit of a logistical issue.

“Our catch ups have all been made for us,” Chelsie explained to Mamamia. “We’ve had a few rendezvous, but we did almost accidentally bump into each other last weekend which is kind of exciting, but also sad that I couldn’t go run up to him.”

You can read our interview with the couple in our post here.
