The Alabama election upset. A possible Destiny's Child reunion (!!). What the internet searched for in 2017. Netflix's January streaming list. Aliens?! What a Wednesday, huh? The good news is that you're likely wrapping up work for the year and starting to focus on holiday festivities.
Read on below for absolutely everything Bustle's editors were talking about Wednesday, Dec. 13:
Doug Jones + Alabama
It's official: Democrat Doug Jones beat Roy Moore, an accused sexual predator, for the Alabama Senate seat. Jones' win is largely due to black women voters, and people near and far were celebrating on Tuesday evening. Even Donald Trump tweeted something nice (well, kinda). This is the first win for a Democrat in Alabama since '92, but liberals can keep the momentum going right now.
ICYMI: This is the clip of Jake Tapper & Roy Moore's spokesman that everyone is talking about. SMH.
Google + 2017
Another day, another best of 2017 list. This time around, Google released its most searched lists of 2017. The most surprising search on that list? Matt Lauer is 2017's most searched person, followed by Meghan Markle, Nadia Toffa, Harvey Weinstein, and Kevin Spacey. That's right, three out of five names on that list go to alleged sexual harassers. Says a lot about 2017, huh?
Life Hack: Shutting off from work in the evenings and on weekends is actually good for you. That's right, answering work email after hours can actually impact your health.
Khloé Kardashian + Baby
Is Khloé Kardashian pregnant? That's the question on fans minds as the world waits for an official confirmation. One rumor said that Kardashian would reveal the pregnancy on the family's Christmas card, but it looks like that's not happening now. But now this new Keeping Up With Kardashians preview might the biggest clue as to when the announcement will happen.
Now we just need the scoop on Kylie Jenner's reported pregnancy!
Congrats! John Stamos is going to be a dad and his announcement is so Uncle Jesse.
Salma Hayek + Harvey Weinstein
In an essay for The New York Times Salma Hayek claims Harvey Weinstein threatened to kill her, among other heartbreaking allegations. Hayek, calling Weinstein "my monster," claims that he once told her, "I will kill you, don’t think I can’t" and made working on Frida a nightmare.
Weinstein's spokesperson, Sallie Hofmeister, told The New Yorker, "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein."
WTF of the Day: Umm, this asteroid might actually be proof that aliens exist. NASA is set to announce "major" alien news on Dec. 14 so I guess we'll know soon enough...
What to Watch: OMG, your favorite '00s movie is leaving Netflix in January. Hurry up and watch soon!
