The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On May 16
How's it going, everyone? It's a gorgeous day here in New York, and the week is set to only get warmer and sunnier in the next few days. Summer is right around the corner, y'all!
And the news is just getting crazier with each passing day. Here's a recap of everything that had Bustle's editors talking today, Tuesday, May 16:
Trump + Russia
In case you somehow missed it, President Trump shared highly classified information with Russian officials, and everyone, understandably, flipped out. The White House denied the report at first, but Trump's tweets about the meeting on Tuesday pretty much confirmed it happened. And to make matters even crazier, it's now being reported that the classified intel came from Israel. To be continued...
Sigh: In a surprise to no one, "But Her Emails" has become a rallying cry against Trump and those who support him (and fought against Hillary Clinton).
ABC + The Little Mermaid
This is big, '90s kids: ABC is making a Little Mermaid live-action musical, with some animation mixed in. Celebs will reportedly perform classics like "Under the Sea" and "Part of Your World," so prepare to sing along all night long when the event occurs on Oct. 3.
Save the Date: Jimmy Kimmel will host the 2018 Oscars, which are set to be held on Sunday, March 4. Get your ballots ready.
Bachelor Nation + A New Show
As if there weren't enough Bachelor-themed shows already in existence, a new one is on its way: Bachelor Winter Games, a spinoff in the vein of Bachelor in Paradise that'll see contestants take part in winter-themed athletic challenges while searching for love. February can't come soon enough.
LOL: RompHim, aka male rompers, might be coming, and Twitter is not happy.
Instagram + Face Filters
The newest feature to hit Instagram is a doozy, and a big competitor to Snapchat. Instagram face filters are pretty similar to those used by the other social media app, and just as fun — so get ready to make your conversations on Insta a lot more interesting from now on.
