How's it going, everyone? Today was certainly one crazy news day, but that's pretty much normal at this point. It's now started to feel weirder when there isn't some massive, breaking political news story occurring each day than when there is.
For more on the whole Donald Trump Jr. debacle and other stories, read on for a recap on all the events that had Bustle's editors talking on Tuesday, July 11.
Donald Trump Jr. + What We Know
More details have come out about Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer to gain incriminating info on his dad's then-opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The L Word + A Big Return
Rumor has it that a sequel to The L Word is in the works at Showtime, and some of the show's original cast members are not only on board to return, but might executive produce as well. Considering how important and influential the original series was in changing the game for LGBTQ representation in media, it'll be interesting to see what a follow-up will be like.

Nicki Minaj + Pregnancy
Relax — as far as we know, Nicki Minaj isn't pregnant. But that hasn't stopped fans from wondering. The rapper ignited speculation when she posted a baby emoji on Twitter without any other explanation. It's certainly possible that she was hinting at a pregnancy, but it's also likely that she was just referring to her music, or even actual baby and Instagram star Asahd Khalid. So mysterious...

Harry Potter + Fanfiction
Guys, this is amazing. Someone accidentally read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix fanfiction instead of the real thing, and was convinced it was totally legit. It was only when their friend was all like, "Uh, no, Harry and Hermione don't hook up" that they realized where they went wrong. LOL.

Great news, caffeine addicts. Two new studies suggest that people who drink coffee every day are at lower risk for things like heart attacks and cancer. But before you break out your next cup, know that scientists aren't exactly sure if coffee is the reason for these decreased risks. But hey, even a possible connection is pretty damn great.
