Sh*t just hit the fan!

Earlier this week, Ryan Lochte claimed that he and three of his teammates — Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger, and Jimmy Feigen — were robbed at gunpoint by thieves pretending to be cops.

However, the Brazilian government totally called BS, and wanted to question the athlete about his claims.

While Lochte and Feigen returned to the US before they can be interrogated, Conger (pictured left) and Bentz (right) weren't so lucky.

On Wednesday, the Team USA swimmers were yanked off a flight as they tried to leave the country.

As of now, the United States Olympic Committee is still trying to figure out why the two athletes were detained.

As we reported, there is a theory that Ryan lied about the mugging so he could get out of an argument with girlfriend Kayla Rae Reid!

Forget about swimming! The real drama is happening OUTSIDE of the pool!

Khloé Kardashian Detoxed From Technology During Her Visit To Cuba!

no title

Even a social media queen needs a break from social media!

As we reported in May, Khloé Kardashian and her family traveled to Cuba after Barack Obama lifted the ban.

One thing that KoKo had to get used to was the country's strict rules regarding technology!

According to the tall diva:

"Cuba is a beautiful country. The hospitality and kindness of the Cuban people even inspired me to learn Spanish again! But, one thing that got a little getting used to was the pace of their technology. We had WiFi in our hotel, but if too many people were on it, it kicked you off. We were all feening to get online, but as soon as someone else would connect to it, I'd get kicked off, LOL."

A Kardashian gal without Internet?! Sounds like a recipe for disaster!

What made things worse was that the entire K family couldn't use Snapchat!

"And social media is monitored by the government! Snapchat isn't allowed. Everything you post using WiFi has to be approved. They can even remove posts from your Instagram page. Snapchat is so instantaneous that it would be impossible for them to monitor so it's not even allowed."

However, not having access to technology was actually a blessing in disguise. The 32-year-old enjoyed not having her phone on her 24/7!

"I wasn't big on emailing while I was out there and I have to admit it was really refreshing not to have my phone glued to me. It was nice to call in to check in with people instead of text. I checked in on my house (I'm in the middle of some home improvements), called my business manager and made sure [my dog] Gabbana was doing OK."

Overall, Miz Kardashian learned to live life in the present!

"That week, I learned nothing is really that urgent or dire. Normally if I don't have my phone, I feel like I'm disconnected, but Cuba taught me to enjoy the present without distraction. Such a good lesson!"

Sometimes we all need to disconnect to truly appreciate our surroundings!

Bernie Sanders Pledges To Join Forces With Hillary Clinton 'To Defeat Donald Trump'! Did They Just Become Best Friends?!

no title

He's with her… almost!

Earlier this week, Bernie Sanders was mathematically eliminated from the Democratic race when Hillary Clinton scored enough delegates to become the party's presumptive nominee — leaving many to wonder if he would run as an independent.

But it looks like the Vermont Senator is embracing the whole "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" philosophy we all too often see in politics!

That's right! On Thursday, Sanders officially pledged to join forces with Clinton because — why else? — "to make sure Donald Trump does not become president of the United States."

Hillary Clinton Apologizes For Mistakenly Praising Nancy Reagan's 'AIDS Activism'

Filed under: Oops!PolitikHillary ClintonTwitterVogueLGBT

This is definitely NOT her best moment!

On Friday, during MSNBC's televised funeral for former first lady Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton spoke to reporters about the role the 94-year-old played during the AIDS epidemic in the 80s.

The presidential candidate said:

"It may be hard for your viewers to remember how difficult it was for people to talk about HIV/AIDS back in the 1980s. And because of both President and Mrs. Reagan — in particular Mrs. Reagan — we started a national conversation. When before nobody would talk about it, nobody wanted to do anything about it, and that too is something that I really appreciate with her very effective, low key advocacy but it penetrated the public conscious and people began to say, 'Hey, we have to do something about this too.'"

The only problem? Ronald Reagan's wife never did any of that. In fact, she did the opposite.

According to Teen Vogue, Reagan turned her back to the LGBT community as millions suffered from the illness.

In 2003, Michael Cover — an executive at a groundbreaking AIDS health-care organization in Washington — argued
