+ YouTube has made a deal with several of its most popular stars to create scripted video series for YouTube Red. Ten creators were taken to Sundance last year to work with industry professionals to develop their ideas into scripted series, and one of the shows that earned a development deal comes from bisexual writer/actress/advocate Gaby Dunn and her best friend Allison Raskin. Everyone’s a Liar is “a case-of-the-week series about a duo who start a private agency to investigate the morality of friends, business partners and significant others.”
+ The America’s Next Top Model reboot continues to exist and air episodes, and on Monday night, another cast member came out, more or less, when Marissa revealed that she doesn’t think love has a gender. She explored this genderless love for a three-hour fling with Kyle, who is 23. “There’s a lot of drama in the house right now. I just want to go and get away from all of them,” she confessed. “I didn’t expect to necessarily hit it off with anybody in this house. Marissa is only 18 — almost 19-years-old — but very confident in the fact that she has a somewhat alternative sexuality, and she has really no hesitation with any of that.”
