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

1. The Bachelor’s Monique has claimed Matt Agnew is “two-faced” off-screen and wait, what?

Okay, so this season of Bach is looking more and more promising (drama-wise) each week.

We’d personally like to thank the producers for finding women so willing to openly b*tch about not only their fellow contestants, but The Bachelor himself.

In the latest tea-spill, former contestant Monique has called Matt “two-faced”, which brings the number of names she’s called the astrophysicist to three, given she already labelled him a disrespectful pig and dog c*** (allegedly).

In an interview with Woman’s Day, the lingerie designer, 26, claimed that away from the cameras, Matt swore like a sailor, which in her mind, means he shouldn’t have been fazed by being called a c*** for kissing another woman.

“Him saying to me that language is disgusting [was rich, he was] swearing like a house on fire when I was having time with [him] off camera. It was a bit two-faced,” Monique explained.

“Anyone who… purposely makes people look like sh*t for their self-gain, I think it’s disrespectful.”

Speaking after she was sent home from the mansion, Monique claimed Matt warned her she was going to look “like a fool” after she told him she couldn’t remember exactly what was said during the explicit conversation by the pool.

“I said to him, ‘Look, I could make it all better and sit here and just say, yeah, I said it, I’m sorry, but I didn’t come in here lying and I’m not going to lie now, and I’d rather leave and look like a fool than lie to you right now and make it all better’,” Monique told news.com.au.

“And he said, ‘Yeah you do look like a fool on TV’ and I was like, ‘You know what, I’m going to stay true to myself, so I’m OK with that’.”

So, while Monique still hasn’t admitted to using the c-word when talking about Matt behind his back, she thinks he’s a hypocrite for finding the language offensive.

Hmm.

2. Oh. It turns out Vakoo had a major wardrobe malfunction during The Bachelor.

Ahh, nip slips.

We’ve all been there.

Most of us… not on national television, though.

The same could almost not be said for Bachelor evictee Vakoo, who admitted there was a slight wardrobe malfunction during her single date with Matt that thanks to a strategic blazer, wasn’t caught on camera.

(I mean, we’d hope that wouldn’t have made it to the episode, but you never know).

While guest-hosting Have You Been Paying Attention last night, the 24-year-old NSW model said she accidentally flashed Matt, and he was a total gentleman about it.

“It wasn’t shown on camera, but there was a little scene where Matt came to get me, and I went to hug him, and I was wearing a strapless dress and my t**s fell out,” she admitted to the panel when asked about one of her most memorable moments.

“And then he took his jacket – because obviously the cameras would have seen if I had turned – and he took his jacket off and covered me with it.”

I went into the one on one time with the intention of showing Matt a different side of me. I can be very giddy and I laugh a lot. I don’t think those traits are immature, I’m just a very bubbly personality in a very unusual situation and he just happened to bring that out of me. We had a good conversation but the giggling was more entertaining to put ???? What an experience though ???? Going on @thebachelorau was one of the highlights of my year. I never thought i could live with a bunch of girls and have so much fun. I’ll miss all the laughs, cries, story times, dancing and eating a ridiculous amount of food. I may not have found love with the Bach but I found love with some extraordinary women. I can happily say I have made some lifelong friends. I learned so much about myself, while staying true to who I am and what I believe in. I wouldn’t change the experience for anything. I have no regrets and i am really grateful to have been chosen to be part of this season. Thank you to all the people who work hard on bringing something entertaining to your tv screens. Thank you to the sound guys, camera crew, producers, MUA’s, drivers, the two amazing women who took care of us. Most importantly, thank you so much to everyone who has been supporting me and rooting for me. I am so overwhelmed by the love and the messages you guys are sending me ????❤️

The incident more than explains why their date was so awkward. I mean, who wouldn’t be in fits of giggles after that?

3. Lena Dunham has finally shared the reason behind her split from Jack Antonoff.

It’s been over a year since Lena Dunham spilt from her boyfriend of five years, Jack Antonoff. And now we finally know the reason why.

Like all couples, finding a house and building your life together can be a struggle. But Dunham had no idea it would lead to the end of her relationship.

“Life happened and I fell in love and whispered those terrifyingly vulnerable three words: ‘Let’s buy something’,” Dunham wrote in an essay for Domino essay.

As the 33-year-old actress started planning her home with 35-year-old Antonoff, the couple started running into hurdles.

“My man was afraid of dust. So we bid on an apartment that hadn’t even been built yet, and I spent the year making obsessive scrapbooks just like my mother before me,” she wrote.

“He hated it,” she continued. “He didn’t want to hate it. He tried not to hate it. But he didn’t like living among the insides of my mind.

“The last time I saw that apartment was when we agreed, with love, that someone had to go. 'You can finally eat in the bed without anyone getting mad at you,' he said through tears.”

Dunham and Antonoff dated from 2012 until late 2017. After he moved out, Dunham sold their shared home and she now lives in a second-floor rental in New York which she loves.

"It was close enough to the art supply store, LifeThyme salad bar, and my therapist," she wrote.

“The space isn’t big but it’s perfect for pacing, and every day I do laps through all the doors like I’m in a slapstick comedy from the 1930s, amusing myself.”

4. Keanu Reeves and Carrie Anne-Moss are officially making a fourth Matrix movie.

We can all agree, Keanu Reeves is having somewhat of a moment lately, whether he's beating up bad guys in John Wick or playing Canada's greatest stuntman in Toy Story 4 or playing... himself in Always Be My Maybe.

And now it's been announced he'll grace our screens once again in a fourth Matrix movie, alongside fellow Canadian actress Carrie-Anne Moss.

The sci-fi movie will be directed by longtime Matrix helmer Lana Wachowski and produced by Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow.

“We could not be more excited to be re-entering The Matrix with Lana,” confirmed WB chairman Toby Emmerich. “Lana is a true visionary – a singular and original creative filmmaker – and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing and producing this new chapter in The Matrix universe.”

Reeves and Moss will both be reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity, which they played twenty years ago when the first Matrix hit cinemas.

According to Variety, production on the fourth movie is scheduled to begin in early 2020, which gives us enough time to binge watch the fist three movies — The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.

5. "I'm heartbroken." Nadia Bartel has addressed her rumoured split from husband Jimmy.
