Happy hump day, everyone! It's a good day, considering the news that Bill O'Reilly is finally out at Fox News (more on that later), among other things. It's hard not to have a smile on your face upon hearing that, isn't it?
Read on for more info on O'Reilly's exit, Serena Williams' happy baby news, and more, in the recap of Wednesday, April 19 below:
Bill O'Reilly + A Long-Awaited Exit
Bill O'Reilly is leaving Fox News after it was revealed that several sexual harassment claims had been made involving the TV host over the years. It's good to see O'Reilly be forced out of the network, but don't be fooled into thinking that his exit is a major feminist victory. It's taken way too long for the host to be held responsible for his actions, and for Fox to take measures to let him go.
Reason to Hope: Planned Parenthood president and feminist hero Cecile Richards is helping to lead the fight against Donald Trump's targeting of Title X. Hell, yes.
People's Most Beautiful + Julia Roberts
And the star chosen for People's Most Beautiful Woman of 2017 is... Julia Roberts! This is the actor's fifth time getting this honor, and her winning this year's cover at 49 is pretty damn cool, considering how prevalent ageism is in Hollywood.
Baby News: Serena Williams is pregnant! Congrats to the champion athlete and mom-to-be.
Emma Watson + A New Book Club Pick
Listen up, book lovers: Emma Watson's new book club pick is a good one. The actor and activist has chosen Margaret Atwood's classic dystopian work The Handmaid's Tale as the novel to read for her book club, Our Shared Self. It's not only a great piece of writing, but disturbingly timely — so don't wait on getting yourself a copy.

OMG, you guys: the new season of Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is almost here, and the Season 3 trailer looks so, so good. Not only does it feature Hamilton breakout Daveed Diggs, but it also shows Kimmy going to college — which you know won't be a piece of cake. Count down the days until the show's May 19 premiere.
