The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Apr. 3
Hope everyone's getting settled into April! The month may only be a few days in, but already it's filled with news — and Monday was certainly no exception. From the tragic St. Petersburg subway bombing to the allegations against Fox News' Bill O'Reilly (more on both those items below), this day was filled with nonstop action.
Read on for a recap of those events, plus much more.
The Russia Subway Bombing + What Happened
Monday got off to a tragic start, with news breaking that at least 10 people had been killed in a Russian subway bombing attack. Reportedly, over 50 have been injured, and photos and videos of the St. Petersburg bombing aftermath are chilling. It's not yet known if the attack was terrorism, but regardless, it's a horrific event.
How To Help: With so many people affected by the bombing, it's crucial that we do what we can to show our support. Here's how to help the St. Petersburg victims during this difficult time.
Bill O'Reilly + Disturbing Allegations
At least six women have claimed over a 15-year-period that Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly is guilty of sexual harassment, according to a New York Times report. O'Reilly denies the accusations, but the Times reports that five women have been granted a total of $13 million in settlement payments from the host and Fox over the years. These claims are highly disturbing, and hopefully, more information will come out soon.
Say What?! Almost 150 years after they were written, Susan B. Anthony's letters about women's suffrage have been rediscovered. These writings reveal more info about the movement, and are a huge get for researchers studying that time in history.
Big Little Lies + That Finale
If you tuned in for the finale of Big Little Lies last night on HBO, you're probably still reeling from the action, and I mean, same. But if you missed the episode and need a recap, here's what happened in the Big Little Lies finale. As it turns out, the murder reveal wasn't even the most interesting part. It's too bad Big Little Lies Season 2 is a no-go.

Kylie Jenner + Tyga
Another day, another piece of KardashiJenner news. According to People, Kylie Jenner and Tyga have reportedly split, at least for the time being. The on-again, off-again couple are apparently in an off period, but only time will tell if this break ends up being the real thing.
