Kendall Jenner admits younger sister Kylie was 'jealous' of her modelling career

Just like any other siblings, models Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner also experienced a rivalry while growing up. The latter says her younger sister used to be jealous of her modeling career.

“She’s a Leo so she loves attention, and at certain points when we were younger, it bothered her that I was getting attention in terms of my modeling,” Kendall told Cosmopolitan magazine, reports

“I think that’s a natural younger-sister thing – to be jealous. I was jealous of her at times too,” she added.

Nevertheless, now that they are growing up and have their own budding careers in showbiz, they become very supportive of each other.

“Now she loves what I do and supports me. She’s very into fashion and always texts me when I’m doing a big show like ‘That is the sickest thing ever! How were the clothes?’ It’s as much a part of her as it is mine,” Kendall said.

Pregnant Kim Kardashian reveals she may have diabetes

Kim Kardashian has made no secret of the fact that she hasn't enjoyed being pregnant, but the reality star hinted in the promo for Season 11 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians on Sunday, Oct. 11, that she could be diagnosed with diabetes as she carries her second child.
The 34-year-old, who is expecting a son in December with husband Kanye West, 38, suffered from potentially deadly preeclampsia when she was pregnant with daughter North West in 2013, and on routine doctor's checkup, she learned that she could be in even more trouble this time around. 

"Once you have preeclampsia, you are at risk for having it again," Kardashian's doctor warned her in a scene from the upcoming season of the reality show.

Then Kardashian told her mother, Kris Jenner, and big sister, Kourtney Kardashian, "They saw more fluid than usual in my placenta, which can mean I have diabetes."
The shock was clear on Jenner's face.

How I survived getting pregnant in the university – Waje

Waje with daughter, she's all grown.
Singer, Waje, went nostalgic and socially conscious on Sunday, October 11, when the ‘girl child day’ was commemorated.
In an emotional note on her Instagram page, Waje shared the tale of how her journey as a single parent has been so far.

Waje revealed that after getting pregnant in the university, she considered quitting, but her strong support system, made things easy for her.
The singer also issued a clarion call on all women, especially those in authority, to support and empower the female gender.
Waje wrote:
“Today, the 11th of October, is the International Day of the Girl Child and I really want to celebrate my childhood and thank God for how blessed I am to have the mother that trained me. I want to celebrate my daughter… The best thing that has ever happened to me and the most important person in my life!
When I was still pregnant with my daughter, I had very tough decisions to make; would I have to quit the university to raise my child? Would I be able to live my lifelong dream of being a musician? Would I be able to raise my daughter single handedly? How would I make ends meet?
I was one of the lucky ones, the ones with a support system of mothers, of parents pushing their daughters to pursue an education, to continue to dream, to work towards their dream and to continually inspire, motivate and push other young women to excel.
I look around me and I worry about the future of women and girls. I worry about the world I am building for my daughter and her friends. I worry about how our legislation affects girls. I worry about our girls being married off to men their fathers’ age when they should be in school. I see inequality everywhere and I wonder how these young girls who we are celebrating today will cope if we sit and do nothing about their future. Does every single woman have to fight her way through and with everything to remain honourable and respected in her field? I wonder about all these things… But nothing bothers me more than the inaction by women in power and authority.
Too often women fail to empower each other. We forget that our daughters too will follow our actions and not just our words and as the world shrinks into a global village, it will also be our fault that our girls are not sitting on the table and contributing to decisions that ultimately affect them.
There is so much work to do to re-educate the modern day woman to remind her that we are not each other’s adversaries but that there is strength in sisterhood. To teach the generations that come after about those that paved the way for us. Now it is time to open doors for our daughters and sisters and to embrace our weaknesses together and turn them into strengths.
We can blame legislation. We can blame men. We can blame War but if we do not take responsibility for our future, we only have ourselves to blame! I am speaking directly to everyone, especially women in positions of influence and power. What are we doing to educate, enlighten and empower young women and girls to compete equally in the society?
It is time to take responsibility and save the world… It is time raise more women! In our case, It is time to educate and empower the African Woman!”

Woman abandons six-month old baby on trash bin after quarrel with husband

One Owhoghovo Annabel, a native of the Isoko speaking area of Delta State, on Friday, allegedly dumped her six-month-old baby at a dump site after having a quarrel with her husband.
PUNCH reports that the quarrel degenerated into physical combat, where the couple allegedly traded punches.
On Thursday evening, when Annabela’s husband returned from work, he asked her to massage his feet. Annabel, who was reluctant to carry out the task, was alleged to have used abusive words on her husband, which led to heated exchange of words and physical combat.
The fight was said to have continued on Friday morning after some neighbours who got wind of their quarrel moved in to settle the dispute.
Reports claim that the woman was said to have told her husband that she was visiting her mother in Abraka, only for her to allegedly dump the baby on a waste dump midway. The cry of the baby was said to have called the attention of passersby, who took the baby to a police station in the community.
Mrs. Celestina Kalu, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the state command, confirmed the arrest, saying Annabel is presently helping the Police at the Police division in their investigations.
The PPRO also added that the accused will be charged to court on completion of investigations.
