Treasury Secretary’s Wife Posts Tacky-Ass Let-Them-Eat-Cake Instagram Post

The President spoke in primetime tonight. He interrupted Bachelor in Paradise basically to say that we have a new plan in Afghanistan but I’m not going to tell you what it is, but it’s basically the same plan that we’ve had all along, and also «we will win.» In other words: He announced that he’d engage in exactly what he’s argued against for years: An endless war.

«The President looked directly at the sun without any glasses, perhaps the most impressive thing a President has ever done.» An actual quote from Tucker Carlson. Tonight. On TV. In earshot of other people. With the intention of them hearing what he said. My God.

Meanwhile, here’s something we can celebrate:

Elsewhere, this Instagram post from Louis Linton — the wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin — may ultimately get more attention than Trump’s speech last night.

She provides consultations, trainings and speeches around the world on diversity and inclusion efforts with a particular emphasis, of late, on Kyriarchy. Anyway, she is super cool, and if I might, I’d like to direct you to her website and thank her for being understanding. Check it out: (CrystalHuff)

Elisabeth Moss Defended Scientology On Instagram

70th Annual Cannes Film Festival - 'Top of the Lake: China Girl' - Photocall

Elisabeth Moss is a talented actress who’s been in a number of quality projects (Mad Men, Top Of The Lake, that earnest yet somehow sensual Excedrin Migraine commercial). But talented people can have faults. Like being cultists! Elisabeth’s a big-time follower of what happened when L. Ron Hubbard obviously bet a pal he could make millions by starting his own wacky religion. She’s way dedicated. Hence, her reportedly bouncing from the room when Scientology Suppressive Personality #1 Leah Remini won a Television Critics Award earlier this month.

Page Six reports that Elisabeth was slightly more open to a civilian asking questions about the more fascistic elements of Scientology on Instagram. Elisabeth’s gotten raves for her performance in HULU’s The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s the series based on Margaret Atwood’s novel about a future where women are treated like brood mares. So basically it’s a story about the Duggars taking over. One of her IG followers asked about similarities between Scientology and The Handmaid’s Tale.

“Love this adaptation so much,” the fan commented on one of Moss’ recent Instagram photos. “Question though, does it make you think twice about Scientology? Gilead and Scientology both believe that all outside sources (aka news) are wrong and evil…it’s just very interesting.”

Elisabeth couldn’t exactly sneer up at the podium and haughtily flounce out of the banquet room here. So she answered with a riff about how Scientology is basically the It’s A Small World ride of religions.

“That’s actually not true at all about Scientology. Religious freedom and tolerance and understanding the truth and equal rights for every race, religion and creed are extremely important to me. The most important things to me probably. And so Gilead and THT hit me on a very personal level.”

Gilead is the fictional fascist country that’s the setting of The Handmaid’s Tale. This acknowledgment that she’s aware of her Thetans is rare for Elisabeth. Normally when she’s asked about it, like when Vulture asked her about it back in 2014, her answer goes something like this:

“I’m not going to talk about it anymore. I said what it meant to me, and anyone can go and look at that if they want to know what I feel. But now it’s private, off limits.”

I can’t blame her. Who wouldn’t want to keep it quiet? It’s a scary deal. It’s bad enough that Scientologists can end up imprisoned on cruise ships or allowed to die in awful places like Florida. But then you gotta pay homage to Tom Cruise. Nope!

McKayla Maroney Is Back On Instagram And She Wants You To Know It

Apparently, McKayla Maroney took a month long break from social media, specifically Instagram where she does most of her posting, after recently getting into a car accident with some friends. I didn’t really notice until she posted an IG story last night of her strutting that giant ass all over the place like she never left.

Then I went to her page and saw this post with the whole explanation.

So not only is she back on IG game, but she’s also planning on being a singer now? Who knew? All I know is the former Olympian back on the Gram is good for everyone. She’ll drop the occasional ass shot to remind us she’s still here and the world will be a better place. Welcome back.

Behind the Instagram Surgery Before and After

Last week, Kylie Jenner’s cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Simon Ourian, directly linked the recent spike in lip surgeries to Jenner’s popularity. While her bread and butter may be lipsticks, Jenner’s more permanent modifications are a less discussed but undeniable part of her heat-seeking brand, which has contributed not only to the rise of the Insta-famous makeup artist, but arguably to that of the Insta-famous surgeon. (Indeed, Ourian’s account boasts almost 2 million followers.)

Ourian, and others like him in in visually driven medical fields, from plastic surgery to cosmetic dentistry, are massaging the conventions of doctor-patient confidentiality by capitalizing on the visibility of social media platforms like Instagram. And as Jenner and others continue to be, at least implicitly, rewarded for unapologetic use of cosmetic facial or dental procedures, going public with going under the knife is less taboo than ever.

To be sure, behind every before-and-after photo lies a willing patient. But who they are, why they sought treatment, and whether or not they were a satisfied customer is never captured by the close-up shots of freshly plumped lips and capped smiles currently cluttering your Explore Tab.

Here, we talk with Dr. Ourian and Dr. Sam Saleh about everything from cost to recovery time – and to their mutual patient, Carlene Pride, who sought both for treatment and gives her thoughts – both positive and negative – about each doctor’s 21st century bedside manner.

Occupation: Cosmetic surgeon

Instagram: @simonourianmd1

Why did you join Instagram initially? 

I joined Instagram because it helps me reach a wide audience. Our Instagram posts give people details about my techniques and about the newest and latest treatments and technologies available.  My followers can learn about available treatments and see up-close results. It’s kind of a preview of possible results from our procedures.

What percent of patients are aware of your online presence?

About 80% of our patients are aware of our online presence.  We have very active online communications with our existing and potential clients.

How long is your waiting list to get an appointment?

Depending on the time of the year and the desired treatment, the wait time can be from a few weeks to several months.

What is the best and worst thing about being an Instagram-famous doctor?

The best part about Instagram is that it allows me to provide a lot of information and education to millions of people worldwide in a very short time. The worst part is that I receive hundreds of messages every day but I’m unfortunately not able to reply to everyone – even though I wish I could.

Have your patients skewed any younger since your Instagram took off?

Yes.

Do you recommend Instagram as a tool for finding doctors?

No, but I do think it can be useful for seeing doctors’ results achieved, aesthetic taste, and overall attention to detail.

How long had you been practicing when you joined Instagram?

Well I graduated school in 2000. And I’ve been on Instagram now for about 4 years. My wife introduced it to me more on a social level because I love taking photos, but then I realized that it’s a marvelous platform from which one can basically showcase one’s work.

Did the amount of appointments increase as your Instagram following grew?

Oh, yeah. I was always fortunate enough to have a pretty wide base of patients because I was on television and in the media. But with the advent of Instagram, it opened up a patient base that was literally worldwide. So now, I can honestly say that on a typical week, I’ll have as many patients that have flown here as have driven here.

How far do they come? It’s international? 

Sometimes more have actually flown to come to see me than are locals. They come from Australia, Qatar, and all different countries in the Middle East, Europe, Hong Kong, and Indonesia. 

Has there been a spike in interest in cosmetic dentistry in general with the rise of Instagram?

Oh, 100%. I think the whole advent of taking selfies and just being a lot more observant of our appearance [has made it so that] the average person who’s not necessarily on TV is now their own little celebrity. And of course there’s a lot of image-modifying technology that’s happening. And what I find that does is that almost acts as a precursor so it’s almost like they’re seeing what they could look like. There are a lot of applications where you rub on the teeth and the teeth become whiter. So they kind of get an idea of what they could look like if their smile was brighter or better. And once they see how nice it looks, that’s when they say, “I want to make this a reality.” 

Do your patients who find you on Instagram tend to skew younger? 

I would say, yes, there are demographics. I would say my biggest demographic is between the ages of 25 and 34 so that’s where I’m most popular. But from the analytics we have people starting at 13 all the way to 65. We’re not exclusive of any age but I would say the biggest group is between 25 and 34. 

Has framing dentistry as aspirational helped with people’s anxiety about going to the dentist?

Oh yeah, 100%. Because of like I said you’re able to post videos and things like that, you’re able to show patients your personality. So when I’m doing calls or doing a virtual consult or something like that, people will say, “I’ve been following you for several years now and I feel like I know your family.” So there’s a familiarity there. 

Have you experienced pushback from others in the medical community?

Yes, I’m quite sure that there are lots of people [for whom] this is not their cup of tea. That’s just the way the world is. There’s something for everyone. The nice thing about Instagram is that if you like it then come and follow and if you don’t then scroll past so it’s just one of those things. It’s not for everyone.

What’s the process of getting the before and after photos?

Any patient that comes to my office, it’s part of the consent forms that we give them to fill out. We ask them if they mind if we share the results of their treatment. If they give us permission, then they sign off on it, and if they don’t then we obviously respect their wishes.

Has that ever been a motivating factor for a patient who wanted to get on your Instagram?

Um, I think so. I’ve definitely had a lot of patients who have said, I found you because I saw a before and after photo and you changed my life, and I want to pay it forward and create that inspiration for somebody else who may be in a similar situation. And they may say, I want you to put it out my before and after so that if someone is in my situation, they know there is something for them that could help improve their self-confidence.

How did you come across Dr. Saleh?

I’m from Seattle, where cosmetic dentistry tends to be a little more conservative. They’re kind of more [about] just want[ing] to fix what you already have going on. I thought, I need to find someone down in L.A. who gets what my needs are and what I’m looking for so I Googled “top cosmetic dentists.” I thought, maybe these doctors are on Instagram. And Dr. Saleh really showcases the level of artistry that goes into his work. 

What procedure were you looking to have done?

I was going for full mouth reconstruction. I grind my teeth a lot due to stress and I wanted to have a better smile because I’m launching a separate company. I’m the face of my company and one thing that I thought that always held me back was my insecurity about my smile. So I wanted to make sure that I hired the best person that was out there for this because it’s so permanent and it’s so expensive. It’s a real investment.

How did you reach out to him initially?

I was obsessed for probably about four months on Instagram and then I decided to fill out his online [form] and they got back to me right away. I was like, “Oh my Gosh, this really cool doctor wants to talk to me on the phone.” And they were like, “No he wants to FaceTime you, he wants to see how you can talk, how you smile, what you’re looking for, let’s set up a time.” We FaceTimed, which I thought was really amazing, it made it feel really personal.

Did he diagnose you over FaceTime?

Somewhat. I already gave him my background and what I was looking for. He was just like, “Yeah I see exactly what you’re looking for and I can see exactly where we can emphasize things in certain areas to give you the smile you want.” So yes, he did diagnose me through FaceTime, which I think was cool.

Was there anybody that you were trying to emulate with your smile? Did you bring in a picture or something of…

I really like Kourtney Kardashian’s smile because she’s got like longer teeth and I really like how it frames the face and all of that stuff and he got it and listened to it and said, “Okay, we’re gonna do it so it fits your face really well.”

Was there any waiting list?

I booked, because I had to make sure I had all of my dollars lined up so I booked mine out probably a month and a half after my last consult so I didn’t have a waiting list.

What were the results of the procedure?

I can’t describe the feeling. I was still kind of hopped up on drugs and stuff so by the time I got back to my hotel and saw my teeth and smiled, it was so overwhelming. It’s almost like I had a facelift too because my teeth were so small and that was one of my problems. Genetically I have really small teeth. He elongated my teeth which I what I really wanted and to be able to see my teeth when I talk and all of that stuff, it was just so amazing and I called my husband up crying and was like, “it was worth every penny.”

Can you say what it cost? 

I knew that this was an investment and had been saving for a while now for it. I called him up and said, “Ok, I’m ready” and they just required a 50% deposit.

So when he gave you the price, it was reasonable enough for you to say, “Okay, and I’ll add on a plane ticket and a hotel room”?

No, it’s not reasonable. It’s not reasonable in that sense.  It was expensive. It wasn’t affordable in any way.

Would you consider finding other types of healthcare providers on Instagram?

Totally, especially for plastic surgery. I saw Dr. Ourian, too.

You saw Dr. Ourian on the same trip?

Yeah, when I was in Los Angeles. I wanted that laser facial that he does.

How did that go?

It wasn’t as easy.

Why not? 

I will tell you that my experience in Dr. Ourian’s office was a little rushed, which I was expecting.

Was it really crowded or what? 

Yeah, there were a lot of people and it was kind of like, “Oh you should try this procedure, you should try this procedure.” They give you a menu and all of that stuff and of course you want to sign up for everything because he’s amazing. The doctor did come and work on me, so he did come, but he sends his team out a lot, whereas with Dr. Saleh, it was just him and I. Dr. Ourian’s location is beautiful. It’s stunning. 

What were the results? 

Your face comes out kind of bumpy and stuff. But my skin is amazing.

Did Dr. Ourian propose a before and after for his Instagram too?

No, but maybe because I came in and had a little swelling from my other procedure, but I don’t think he asked. But they might be when I come back. 

Are you going to go back?

Yeah. Dr. Ourian and Dr. Saleh are close by. They’re like across the street from each other. Anytime I’m in town, I’m going to see both.

Elon Musk Confirms Breakup With Amber Heard Via Instagram Comment

amber3

Yesterday we learned the news that Elon Musk and Amber Heard had broken up after dating for just over a year. Now Elon has confirmed his breakup with Amber the old fashioned way: With an Instagram comment!

Page Six reports:

Heard, 31, posted a photo early Tuesday of herself sticking a fork into her red wig for her role as Mera in the upcoming “Aquaman,” comparing herself to Ariel in “The Little Mermaid.”

Her bemused ex commented, “Very cute.”

Musk, 46, then elaborated on the split in a subsequent comment.

“Btw, just to clear up some of the press storm this weekend, although Amber and I did break up, we are still friends, remain close and love one another. Long distance relationships when both partners have intense work obligations are always difficult, but who knows what the future holds.”

Put a fork in it 📸:@jessicakovacevic

A post shared by Amber Heard (@amberheard) on

Wow, romance truly is dead and Elon is one lazy emmer effer! You’d think a guy of his means would have an army of assistants that could put together and actual press statement for him. He probably broke up with her by sending a drone to her house that dropped a little telephone on which was a text message that read “we’re done. This phone will self-destruct in 10 seconds. x x x Elon”. He seems like the type.

At any rate, Amber must have something on him, because he made nice with his comments and a “source” has couched the break-up in “both are too busy” terms. According to People:

“They had fun for a few months, but are both very busy with work now. It was getting hard to find time to see each other. Elon’s is working day and night. This is his life and he loves it. He is in no position to be in a relationship right now and ended it.”

It’s quite a pivot from what the previous “source” said, which was that Elon bounced because Amber was a manipulative drama queen. I know which story I believe. Amber posted her own announcement on Instagram this morning.

Posting statements about your breakup is a funny way of “remaining more quiet.” But really, at this point, it’s all whatever. But about that Ariel picture; nah, girl. It’s a dinglehopper, you dingleberry! You are using it all wrong. And the movie is called Aquaman, not The Little Mermaid 2: Gettin’ Fishy With It. You have an actual lap not fins. Have a seat, Amber.

Kim Kardashian Doesn’t Need Instagram to Pose For NSFW Photos

The Kardashian-Jenner clan really love going bra-less, don’t they? On Tuesday, Kim Kardashian hit the town with Kendall Jenner in an NSFW outfit. While her half-sister flaunted her long legs in a floral dress, the mother of North and Saint had no qualms walking around NYC in a sheer top and camouflage shorts. Let’s just say, her revealing outfit left little to the imagination. And it definitely can’t be a coincidence that she pulled the same stunt in the big city exactly one year ago. Of course, we wouldn’t expect anything less from Kim. Her sexy selfies on social media are always fogging up our screens.

Iskra Lawrence’s Instagram Should Really Come With a Heat Warning

There really isn’t anything not to love about Iskra Lawrence. The 26-year-old English beauty is the global role model for Aerie, a lingerie and intimate apparel brand that is known for its «no retouching» ads. And Iskra is all about that body positivity. Not only can the model rock the hell out of a swimsuit (seriously, we can only hope to one day have those abs), but she frequently encourages her Instagram followers to do away with all that self-hate. Whether she’s posting a selfie, hitting a beach, or lounging in her sweats, Iskra always manages to look hot, hot, hot. She also almost always captions her photos with #NOretouching and #everyBODYisbeautiful, which should make you look down at yours and say, «You know what? Damn!»

Draymond Green And Conor McGregor Are Going At It On Instagram

Instagram Photo

Draymond Green threw that post up this morning on IG to make sure everybody knows where his allegiances lie in the upcoming Mayweather-McGregor fight. He figured since McGregor was rocking his jersey, he would let everyone know that he was riding with Floyd.

But I don’t think he expected Conor to respond, which is exactly what he did. And now we have ourselves a good, old-fashioned IG war. Conor hopped into the comments to set to record straight and let Dray know that he doesn’t even know who he is.

Is this just more promotion for the fight? Well, there’s a good chance. But I’m going to choose to believe it’s organic. Like Conor woke up, scrolled through IG, saw this, and decided to share his thoughts. Now we wait for Draymond’s response.

Let’s not forget about Floyd… he hopped into the comments too

Rob Kardashian Went Off On Blac Chyna Over Instagram (UPDATE)

robkardashianangry

So much for that rumor that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna were trying to work things out. In fact, there’s a greater chance of Rob being seen working out in a gym than working anything out with Blac Chyna.

There has been so much drama between Rob and Chyna pretty much since they got together, but today’s drama might be the most dramatic. Rob finally became the last person to realize he got played by Blac Chyna, and he’s pissed off. Rob’s accused Chyna on Instagram of cheating, scamming, and lying about how she lost the baby weight after she had their daughter Dream.

According to TMZ, Rob was contacted by a woman two weeks ago who had a child with a rapper named Ferrari. She claimed Ferrari and Chyna had been getting busy on the down-low for two months. This was all while Rob and Chyna were rekindling their relationship. Sources say Rob confronted Ferrari and Chyna, and they denied it. Over the weekend, Ferrari posted a picture of himself in what Rob claims is his robe and was taken in Chyna’s bed. Rob then allegedly went through Chyna’s phone and found more evidence Chyna and Ferrari were fucking around.

#RobKardashian still isn't done 😩

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

TMZ says that Rob posted pics Chyna sent him of her cooch (which was accompanied by a caption accusing her of recently accepting $ 250,000 worth of jewels from him) and tits (accompanied by a caption about how her nipples look different because she had botched post-baby surgery). But those have since been deleted. As has one in which he alleged she got her ass shrunk and that he pays $ 16,000 a month for her rental house. In this video, Rob claims he dropped $ 100,000 for Chyna to get plastic surgery after having Dream. You mean it wasn’t the flat tummy tea?

#PressPlay #RobKardashian is showing no mercy 😩

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

He also accused Chyna of treating him like a dial-a-dealer drug and booze delivery service.

#RobKardashian has had enough today 😩 #BlacChyna

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

He has also joked about making his own Lemonade (possible title: Lemon-Lime Big Gulp). Chyna has responded by Snapchatting her jewelry and implying that Rob is lying.

Rob hasn’t put in this much work since Khloe told him to move his unsold boxes of socks out of her garage. For example, T.I. left a comment for Rob on one of his many posts suggesting he might want to keep all this private instead of dragging it out on Instagram. Rob responded by accusing T.I. of having a threesome with Chyna and Tiny.

This situation has gotten even messier. Chyna accused Rob on Snapchat of beating her and telling her to keep it quiet or she’d send the Kardashians after her.

Technically Rob already gotten them involved. In one of Rob’s notes, he alleges Chyna only got with him out of spite because she was mad that Rob’s “little sister took her baby daddy.” Exposing Chyna as a gold digger and finding a subtle way to insert Kylie Jenner back into it? I’m sure Kris Jenner is beyond pleased. She’s probably engraving his name on an Employee of the Month plaque as we speak. “Sorry Kanye, I know you thought you might be getting it, but Rob just brought in so much more attention than you did.

UPDATE: Instagram clearly wasn’t having any of Rob’s foolery, like repeatedly posting Chyna’s nudes, and they shut his account down. Rob doesn’t appear to care, and he has since taken it to Twitter. TMZ says he has been posting her nudes there too (although those appear to have been deleted as well).
