The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Feb. 6
I don't know about you, but I'm pretty over this winter now — cold and snow, be gone! So while we wait for warmer spring weather to creep in (sadly, I suspect it'll be a while), the news is here to distract us! There are updates from the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, rumors about Kylie Jenner's newborn baby, and Bachelor drama.
Here is what Bustle's editors have been discussing today, Feb. 6:
Kylie Jenner + Baby Name
Days after announcing that she gave birth to a baby girl, Kylie Jenner has revealed her daughter's name! Jenner took to Instagram today to share a sweet photo of her first child with rapper Travis Scott. There were so many rumors floating around about what Jenner and Scott would be naming their baby (many thought she'd be called Butterfly), so it's nice to have closure on that matter.

Quentin Tarantino + Kill Bill filming
On Saturday, actress Uma Thurman gave an interview to the New York Times in which she outlined abuses she endured from Harvey Weinstein, as well as a deeply disturbing instance on the set of Kill Bill. She recalls that director Quentin Tarantino insisted she drive a stunt car during filming. Thurman said that at the time she expressed concern that this wasn't safe, but was ignored. The stunt resulted in a car crash, in which Thurman was injured.
In an interview with Deadline, Tarantino expressed regret over that decision, saying "I am guilty, for putting [Thurman] in that car, but not the way that people are saying I am guilty of it.”.

Justin Trudeau + "Peoplekind"
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in the news again, after he requested that a woman, who was asking him a question, to use the word "peoplekind" instead of "mankind".

Bachelor + Drama
To be fair, every episode in the Bachelor franchise is dramatic, but Monday night's episode was packed with so many twists and turns, my head is still spinning. Between all the unexpected eliminations and a shocking revelation about Arie, it looks like the rest of the season is going to be a doozy.
