Hands up if you DON'T think that...
Kendall Jenner calls out her mother as a liar...
Kendall Jenner has been wisely distancing herself from her famous family for some time.
She has carved out a career for herself as a successful model; from catwalks to ad campaigns to magazine covers, she is a model in demand. She's tried to keep the professional side of her life away from her hideously narcissistic siblings and also her mother who, as we all know, will exploit every ounce of her children's life for fame and fortune.
Kendall's latest triumph is to land Vogue's prestigious September issue cover. It's the highpoint of her career so far and is a long held goal for the 20 year old.
Now Anna Wintour is not going to put a Kardashian (however beautiful) on her cover without a pay off, and the interview accompanying the stunning photo spread is Kendall singing for her supper.
Of all the usual yadda yadda yadda, the takeaway headline from the interview is that Kendall confirms what everyone else long knew but couldn't prove: That her mom, Kris Jenner, knew about her former husband (then) Bruce's gender identity issues from the start of their relationship and is therefore confirmed as being a barefaced liar.
The Jenners were married for 22 years before splitting in 2014 and Caitlyn Jenner has always maintained that Kris was aware that she had commenced hormone treatment to transition into a woman before meeting her. In fact, she only stopped the treatment because of their relationship.
Kris however, who has been proven many times to be a pathalogical liar, claims that she was "blindsided" by Bruce's transition to Caitlyn and was unaware of her husband's inner turmoil.
They had a disagreement about it on Caitlyn's show, I Am Cait. Caitlyn discussed with another trans pal on the show, Jenny Boylan how she was somewhat confused by the fact that Kris was more publicly upset by the "trans stuff" than she was when they were actually together.
When Kris joined the ladies on their road trip in New Orleans, the famous ex's clashed on the subject around the table in front of Caitlyn's squad.
Kris categorically stated that Caitlyn did NOT tell her early on in their relationship about being transgendered. She claims the ex-Olympic athlete only mentioned in passing that she thought she couldn't have any more kids because she "messed about with taking stuff in the '80s" which screwed up her sperm count. Kris reckoned this was the extent of the conversation and she just assumed that it was steroids being discussed.
Caitlyn was adamant however, that she was open with Kris about her struggles in more detail.
We are inclined to believe Caitlyn, mainly because Kris is a liar, but especially given one of Kendall's Vogue anecdotes about growing up in the Jenner household;
"My whole life we would, like, catch her, and we would be like, 'What is going on here? I think we know, but do we?' At one point Kylie and I thought he was cheating on my mom, because he had makeup and nail polish. One time we found these squishy boob things. We found wigs.
She would wake up really early just so she could dress up and move around the house and get that little kick for the morning, and then go back to being Bruce-take us to school, totally normal.
So one morning I woke up at 4 am so thirsty, came downstairs into the kitchen, and grabbed a bottle of water. And as I was coming back out, my dad was coming down the stairs in, like, a wig and makeup and shoes-the full nine. And she didn't see me. I literally froze. Please don't turn left, Because she could either turn left or turn right. Thank God she turned right and-to this day- has no idea what happened. That was the first time I had ever seen her."
Ok so Caitlyn left her women's clothing and make up around, sufficiently unhidden, that her young kids could find it, yet Kris, her wife who was sharing a bedroom with her for 22 years, apparently had "no idea" what was going on?
Kris wants us to believe that she was oblivious to the fact her husband was trans, when he was getting up early to dress up and walk around the house?
It beggars belief and we call bullshit.
It seems Kendall does too, saying to Vogue;
"My mom knew. She knew since their third date."
Kris Jenner knew her husband was conflicted, she knew he liked to dress up, she knew he had taken hormones previously. But yet she was "blindsided" by the Vanity Fair cover when Caitlyn was introduced to the world?
No, she was embarrassed.
Kris could cope with it while they were married and "Bruce's problem" could be kept behind closed doors and swept under the rug. She could continue to pimp out her family and be in control of the family image in order to build their fortune.
But the whole world knowing? Caitlyn standing loud and proud and actually having a chance of finding some inner happiness? Oh no that's different. No way could Kris deal with that, so she went down route of lie, lie, lie.
And it just keeps on coming back to bite her in the ass.
It's getting greener by the day....
When the Rio Olympics kicked off on August 5, some of the first events took place in the Olympic Diving Pool.
This is an open air pool and sits immediately alongside the water polo pool. The pools looked glorious, the water shimmering brightly and a beautiful shade of clear blue.
All was well during the initial diving events on Monday, however by Tuesday viewers noticed the water had turned a definite shade of green, getting murkier by the hour until the divers were practically invisible when under the water.
Obviously this set the internet alight with conspiracy theories...
The diving competition on Monday...
...and on Tuesday
Now the water polo pool is turning green too...
- Green ink from the banners next to the pool
- Shrek infested
- Kermit influence
- St Patrick's Day
- Fake tan
- The Hulk got pissed
The Offical Explanation
Rio officials have been desperately trying to find the answer and reassure the world and competitors alike that the water is safe. Bearing in mind the troubles that Rio2016 have been beset by (Zika virus, kidnap, rape in the athletes village, flooding to name just a few), it's hardly surprising the Brazilians were quick to undermine the risk;
The water quality at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre was tested and there were no risks for the athletes. We are investigating the cause.— Rio 2016 (@Rio 2016)1470780809.0
The embarrassed organizers quickly announced that their investigations had deduced that the water in the dive pool had turned green due to and excess of algae in the water.
According to FINA, the international governing body for the sport, the pH level in the pool dropped as some of the chemicals in the water treatment process ran out. The fact that the dive pool is kept warmer than the regular swimming pool, and the heat and lack of wind apparently meant a proliferation of algae.
Rather worryingly, the spokesman Mario Andrada admitted during a press conference Wednesday;
"We kept the same level of maintenance as we did before but we had far more athletes. We had more dirt in the water and that generated more algae."
Errrr....is this amateur hour? A 6 year old could work out the pool would be getting more use during the actual Olympics than in the run up to the Games!
Even more worryingly, the water polo pool is now going the same hue as the dive pool, and the athletes are struggling to see under the water or open their eyes due to the huge volumes of chlorine being pumped into the pools in an attempt to rectify the problem.
Anyone for water polo?
The latest theory;
British gold medal winning divers Jack Laugher and Chris Mears have their own theory and think that it's something to do with the decorative boards at the side of the pool.
They told an interview on 5Live following their win;
"We've got some big plastic boards that go into the water just for decoration and effect. But you can see on the waterline that they're blue when below the waterline, and above the waterline it's green.
And we think maybe a load of ink has run into the pool potentially. It's safe and the doctors have given it the all clear or whatever..."
However they did stress that they kept their mouths shut when in the water just in case;
"We wouldn't want to have swallowed that!"
Is it really safe though?
The Rio officials stress that the pools are completely safe. But then they would.
The vice-chariman of the Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group said;
"It's great that they're saying there's no safety threat to the divers. But I'm not sure that that means.
If it has gone green and it's due to a lack of disinfectant, then that means there is some sort of implied threat or risk."

More Conspiracy Theories....
A sick hoax video has gone viral showing 18 year old Jaden Smith apparently taking his own life.
Bearing in mind the new movie of Jaden's Dad, Will Smith is called Suicide Squad, it's a pretty macabre stunt that people have been taken in by.
The video doing the rounds on Facebook shows Smith Jnr tearfully gazing into the camera saying goodbye to his famous father before hanging himself.
What makes the video slightly more credible is that the spam app gets permission to post on the user's Facebook page, meaning it shows up in their news feed, and all their friends see it and think it's real and re-share it.
Thankfully though the rapper and actor is alive and well. and as Popdust previously reported, happily dating Sarah Snyder. She came under fire recently when old pictures of her in bed with her ex surfaced, and and it seems that rumors of her cheating on him gained momentum, which may have triggered this suicide hoax.
Jaden and Sarah look very happy together
Jaden has been appearing on red carpets alongside Will recently to promote Suicide Squad, and he is also working on a Netflix show of his own. The Get Down is a musical drama series created by Baz Lurhmann and premieres on August 12
What is weird though, is this isn't the first time there's been a rumor about Jaden Smith dying. In 2011 there was another fake story suggesting that he had died in a skiing accident. Why won't these rumors quit?
The latest hoax has been circulating over the last week and it seems that young Smith has got wind of them, posting in his usual profound way on Twitter;
