Paul Ryan's soup kitchen stop totally blew up in his face ... or did it?? Did Ryan really wash dirty pots and pans? Are the soup kitchen folks just playing CYA -- and most importantly: is a blown photo-op going to affect your vote, anyway? Plus, Britney Spears' ex-manager is suing her parents -- and now that the trial has begun ... all new details about Brit's crazy pre-breakdown days could be exposed in open court. Also, no Black people on "The Bachelor" -- totally cool! That's what a judge said, and the ruling applies to EVERY show on TV. If it smells like racism ... we'll explain why it's not.
