Our Editor's Take

The Spill offers a lively exploration of the latest celebrity gossip. Australian hosts Kee Reece and Laura Brodnik report daily on stories that keep people talking. The day's topic might be a celebrity court battle or a surprise divorce announcement. Either way, Kee and Laura have lots to say.

When she's not on The Spill, Laura serves as the entertainment editor for Mamamia. Cohost and social media influencer Kee joins in her amusing commentary. The duo brings fun, energy, and intelligent analysis to their daily chat.

Sometimes, a marriage looks ideal. That was the case with actors Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen. Since they've announced their divorce, Reece and Laura think there's more to the story. Are things not as amicable as they'd like them to appear? A comment from actress Rebel Wilson makes Reece and Laura question Cohen's character. Singer and mom of two Rihanna is also under scrutiny. How did she reveal that she was once an "internet troll" and who did she bully? Laura and Kee find out on The Spill.

Reality TV can offer celebrities an opportunity to redeem themselves in public. That may be why infamous fitness trainer Michelle Bridges appeared on I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! Did the former host of The Biggest Loser absolve herself of her troubled past? Kee and Laura haven't decided.

Celebrity love stories, like that of Ben Affleck and singer-actress Jennifer Lopez, fascinate fans. Lopez may have reunited with Affleck, but why is the star frustrating some of her fanbase? Many people are wondering whether her upbringing is as hard as she claims. Can she still brand herself as "Jenny from the block"? In one episode, Kee and Laura question Lopez's fate. The two acknowledge that she may be a "diva," but her story is hers.

The Spill provides listeners with a fun and engaging dose of daily celebrity news. Podcast episodes are 15-20 minutes long and air on weekday afternoons.
