The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Aug. 29
Happy Tuesday, all! It's hard to believe that there are only a few days left in August, and with that, the summer overall. Autumn will be here in a heartbeat, and I, for one, am seriously ready for those comfy sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
This month is going out with a bang, though, as shown by all the news and events that had Bustle's editors talking today, Aug. 28:
Joel Osteen + Houston
As Hurricane Harvey continues to ravage Texas, Houston megachurch pastor Joel Osteen has come under fire for not opening the doors of his church to flood victims. Twitter users were not pleased with the news that the megachurch wasn't acting as a refuge, but whether due to the public shaming or not, Osteen's church has now become a shelter for those in need.

The Bachelor + A Big Breakup
Last week, Bachelor Nation fans were heartbroken to hear that Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi had ended their engagement. Now, the exes are opening up about the split, with Nick telling Us Weekly that he still loves Vanessa and that they're still friends. Meanwhile, Vanessa posted an Instagram saying, "It's okay to feel broken. It's okay to cry. It's okay to lean on a friend. In the end, it will always be okay." Oh, man.
