McDreamy's Shocking Fate Revealed!

Plus: Miley kissed a girl, Chrissy Teigen is a pirate and more viral news.

What's going viral? Who's been the top trending topic on Twitter? And what are the news stories that had us obsessed today? There's plenty of can't-miss stuff out there beyond our Bravoverse. And every day, we're rounding up all the must-see stories, Tweets, Instagrams, YouTubes, Vines, and more in one handy place. Enjoy!

Grey's Anatomy Just Killed Off...
You know what's worse than when your favorite show kills off a main character? Almost nothing. And this is why Grey's Anatomy fans are reeling this week after the show killed Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd (played by Patrick Dempsey). It was a pretty shocking twist for a guy who made ladies swoon for years. Now Meredith Grey's longtime love will be pursuing other projects (IRL, obviously) and show creator Shonda Rimes promises big things are in store for the series. We just hope that however Patrick descides to spend his post Grey's Anatomy time, it involves a sequel to Can't Buy Me Love. Then all will be forgiven.

Chrissy Teigen Gets a Peg Leg
The Real Housewives superfan is proving she can look hot wearing just about anything—including a peg leg. She stars in the new Captain Morgan Rum's commercial as the sexiest pirate ever. And the clip just reminds us that with a perfect cat eye and Bridgit Bardot-worthy hair, any weird accessory automatically becomes super fierce.

Disney Gets the R&B Treatment
This is pretty much why YouTube was invented. This amazing video comes courtesy of former American Idol contestant Todrick Hall and singer Shoshana Bean who had the genius idea of taking Disney classic from The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and more and setting them to the tune of 90's R&B jams from Montell Jordan, Mariah Carey and others. It's the kind of video that you have to see to believe. Believe us, it's worth it if only to hear "Part Of That World" set to Ginuwine's "Pony." 

Furious 8 Confirms a Release Date
Following the epic success of Furious 7 comes the news that the eighth film in the Fast and the Furious franchise will hit theaters on April 14, 2017. Vin Diesel announced the Furious 8 news at Cinemacon where he promised to his late co-star Paul Walker (or, as he called him, "my brother upstairs") that with this installment, "we are going to make the best movie you've ever seen."

Miley Kissed a Girl and She Liked It
Miley is newly single and ready to mingle after her reported break-up from Patrick Schwarzenegger. But she's hardly settling down. The singer instead headed to Sin City and got her party on. And it was all documented on social media thanks to fashion photographers Mert & Marcus, who posted a snapshot of Miley snogging one of her gal pals on Instagram. She also snuggled up with supermodel Cara Delevingne at what has been dubbed a #secretparty. Hey, we all deal with heartbreak in different ways.
