    On today's episode:

    1. “Bachelor” fans got huge news this week. Former star Colton Underwood came out as gay, in an interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America. Around that time it was also revealed he was in the midst of shooting a Netflix show about his journey.

    For any non-bachelor fans, here’s some important context: Colton was the show’s lead. Yes, he was the virgin who became a meme for jumping the fence. And yes--he was later accused of stalking his season’s winner after they broke up. Clearly a very complicated situation.

    Joining us today to break it all down is Bachelor authority and co-host of Baby Got Bach, Brett Vergara.

    2. Karen Olivo is resigning from their Tony-nominated role in Moulin Rouge over Broadway’s silence on Scott Rudin.

    3. The team behind the 2011 Oscars is opening up about how Anne Hathaway and James Franco bombed.
