The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Oct. 30
Welcome back, everyone! If you thought you were coming back from the weekend into a slow, relaxing day, you couldn't have been more wrong, because this Monday was packed with news.
From the Manafort indictment to the Kevin Spacey allegations to the Selena Gomez interview that'll leave you in tears, here are all the news and events that had Bustle's editors talking today, Oct. 30:
Paul Manafort + Indictment
This is huge. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has brought charges against Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, and his associate Rick Gates, including "conspiracy against the United States." These are the first indictments in the Russia investigation, and the results could be massive. Meanwhile, George Papadopoulous, Trump's former advisor, pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents in relation to the investigation. Nothing like a slow news day, right?
Hell Yes: Need another reason to smile? Trump's transgender military ban has been blocked by a judge. Nice going, Monday.
Kevin Spacey + What To Know
On Sunday night, actor Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of allegedly attempting to molest him back when he was a 14-year-old. In response, Spacey released a statement in which he apologized for his alleged actions and came out as gay. This statement caused outrage from many, as it seemed like Spacey was using his sexuality to deflect from the allegations. On Monday, Netflix canceled the actor's show, House of Cards. You can bet there'll be more to come on this.
Quote Of The Day: "I am sorry that Kevin only saw fit to acknowledge his truth when he thought it would serve him — just as his denial served him for so many years." — Zachary Quinto, in a statement.
Selena Gomez + The Weeknd
Sad news, celeb fans: looks like Selena Gomez and The Weeknd have broken up after ten months of being in a relationship. The duo reportedly had been having trouble for awhile now, with their busy schedules apparently making maintaining a romance hard. But don't worry: Gomez and Justin Bieber aren't getting back together. Phew.
