The Moment We Knew Jennifer Lopez Was Trolling Us
On the show today… The first trailer for the third season of the Emmy-nominated series (let that sink in) Emily In Paris is here and we have extreme thoughts about where this show is going next and when you should watch it. And it’s Spotify Wrapped day, meaning we now know the most streamed artists both across the world and in Australia, and this information might surprise you. Plus, The Spill hosts share their own Spotify lists and one of them is definitely getting fired. Plus, Jennifer Lopez has taken part in Vogue’s iconic 73 Questions series, and one of her answers, in particular, is really making headlines. However, we’ve figured out exactly what Jennifer Lopez is up to with the pattern of information she’s been sharing lately, and nothing is being done by accident.

Helena Bonham Carter, Amber Heard And An Upsetting Interview
On the show today…. Netflix has released some interesting news about their new Jenna Ortega-led series Wednesday. News that is sure to upset fans of the hit show Stranger Things. Plus, Hollywood’s awards season has swung into action this week with The Gotham Awards taking place in New York this week. A slew of A-list celebrities attend the prestigious film awards, but it was Adam Sandler’s now-viral acceptance speech that has divided viewers (and The Spill team). And in a new interview with the Sunday Times, Helena Bonham Carter has made some disturbing claims about Johhny Depp and Amber Heard, along with calling out her younger Harry Potter co-stars. But are her words just an honest insight into how the old guard of Hollywood really talks or alluding to something more sinister?

There’s Something Suspicious About Em Rata & Pete Davidson’s Relationship Timeline
On the show today…. The Hollywood awards season has kicked off with the announcement of the film nominees for The Independent Spirit Awards. The Indies are usually a good indicator of which movies will dominate awards season and it now appears the biggest frontrunner for the Oscars has already been knocked out. And Will Smith is on the promotional trail for his new movie Emancipation, his first release since the infamous Oscars slap earlier this year. In a recent interview, the actor revealed his biggest fear about the release and it says a lot about changing cancel culture in Hollywood. Plus, in a page taken straight from the internet’s dream journal, Pete Davidson and Emily Ratajkowski have made a very public appearance together just one month into their suspected relationship. Yet, when you look back at the first photos of them together as a couple, there’s something very suspicious about their relationship timeline.

The Story Behind Kim Kardashian’s New Fashion Controversy
On the show today… Jennifer Lopez is releasing a new album and one of the songs will be dedicated to the (surprise) love of her life, Ben Affleck. Here’s everything you need to know. Plus, over the weekend it was confirmed that Allison Langdon will replace Tracy Grimshaw as the host of A Current Affair, with Sarah Abo stepping into her role on the Today show. But before the news was announced, a video of Allison and Tracy went viral and it’s only now been addressed. And, in one of the most controversial fashion stories of the year, Balenciaga has apologised for their recent campaign and removed all traces of the images from their social accounts after an avalanche of backlash. The public then demanded that Kim Kardashian weigh in on the situation and she has only just released a statement, which has changed the dynamic around celebrity and fashion partnerships.

How A New Harry Styles & Olivia Wilde Conspiracy Was Born
On the show today... As anyone who attempted to score tickets to the Taylor Swift Eras Tour would already know, the situation turned into a complete disaster. Now the US Senate antitrust is holding a hearing to work out exactly what happened. And Kanye West has been accused of showing explicit pictures of Kim Kardashian to employees at Adidas, via an open letter from staff and an investigation by Rolling Stone. The allegations paint a brutal picture of how Kanye behaved while working with the sportswear company. Plus, it’s been reported by some pretty reliable sources that Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles have ended their two-year relationship. And while we can all agree a PR stunt was not behind this news, Kendall Jenner is now being named as the key person in a brand new conspiracy theory surrounding their break-up.

Lily-Rose Depp & The Unspoken Truth About Nepo Babies
On the show today… The Project departures have now become a trilogy, with Peter Helliar announcing that he too is leaving the desk. Peter has shared the one Project departure that shocked him, off the back of the first replacement being announced. Here’s what you need to know. And we already knew the next season of The Bachelor Australia was having a shake-up, with three lads handing out roses, but thanks to a new trailer we now know that an extra twist is waiting at the end and it’s a bit of a risky move. Plus, thanks to a new interview with Lily Rose Depp, a series of TikToks by Ireland Baldwin, and a searing post about the modeling industry from Vittoria Ceretti, the conversation around Holywood’s nepotism babies has gone into overdrive. Now we need to talk about how the nepo baby game really works and how we became part of the problem.

Lisa Wilkinson & The Takedown Of TV Golden Girls
On the show today… After abruptly calling off her Las Vegas residency earlier this year, making international headlines, Adele has returned to the stage of the Colosseum at Ceasar’s Palace. Here’s what went down at her first very tearful performance. And the first episode of the Kath & Kim retrospective aired last night, but it has been met with very mixed (mainly disappointed) reactions. So now we need to unpack where it all went wrong and why it might have damaged the legacy of this beloved show forever. Plus, Lisa Wilkinson announced last night that she is leaving The Project. During her announcement, she name-checked a number of high-profile Australian women in media who have also decided to leave their jobs this year and called out the rise in ‘targeted toxicity’. This leads us to talk about why we’re seeing a real thirst for the takedown of TV golden girls.

The Crown Season 5: Problematic Or PR For The Royal Family?
On the show today... Our teenage dreams have come true with Delta Goodrem announcing a 20-year anniversary tour for her Innocent Eyes album. Here’s everything you need to know. Plus, Emma Thompson's done an in-depth interview with The New Yorker reflecting on her life, but the main headlines coming out of that are all about her ex-husband's affair with Helena Bonham Carter. We dissect what she actually said. And we NEED to talk about The Crown Season 5. Dominic West's portrayal of Prince Charles has left us with complicated feelings about the monarch, but is that accidental? Or is the show more entwined with The Royal Family's PR spin than we thought?

Jennifer Aniston And The Worst Thing A Woman Can Be
On the show today… The long-awaited Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is out in cinemas today, so we need to give you a (spoiler free) run-down of how the film honored the late Chadwick Boseman and how the cast beautifully came together to remember him while making the movie.And Millie Bobby Brown made headlines this week when she said she’d love to play Britney Spears in a biopic. Britney responded by reminding us that ‘she’s not dead yet' and it’s led to an interesting discussion about who is allowed to tell these stories on screen. Plus, it’s the new celebrity profile everyone is talking about. Jennifer Aniston is Allure’s new cover star and for the first time she talks about undergoing IVF while the world assumed her two famous husbands had divorced her because she refused to have children. It feels like this should be the end of the prying headlines about her life, but unfortunately, she’s waded right into the territory of the worst thing a woman can be.

The One Problem With Selena Gomez’s New Documentary
On the show today… In some shocking TV news no one quite saw coming, the critical favourite series Westworld has been surprisingly canceled. The cancellation has to do with some behind-the-scenes drama that we need to talk through.

Now we need to talk through the legacy he left for our generation and the celebrity tributes that paired in for him. Plus, Selena Gomez’s new documentary My Mind & Me dropped over the weekend and has ignited a wave of conversations, and criticism.
