Issa Rae’s ‘Gossip Girl’ + Kendall Jenner Ditches Victoria’s Secret: Pop Bits
Issa Rae is considering developing a show that follows black teens, and Kendall Jenner finds herself as the face of a new lingerie company. These are today's Pop Bits.

Hopefully she'll be able to convince some network or streaming service to give her a shot at making that show a reality.
