Stassi Schroeder Finally Got Engaged To Beau Clark Betches

Now that we all suffered through Brittany and Jax’s wedding, there’s finally some news out of Vanderpump Land that we can actually be happy about: Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark are engaged. Praise be, hallelujah. After almost a decade of watching Stassi fall all over herself for men who treat her like hot garbage (hi, Patrick!), she actually ended up with a guy who treats her like the princess she thinks she is. It’s actually pretty funny that she said she feels like Meghan Markle in her Instagram caption, because she’s definitely the royalty in this relationship. I also love the photo that Stassi chose to post, because they look happy, but also she looks like she could rip him …

This Is How Much Money Fake Instagram Followers Are Costing Advertisers Betches

Instagram is f*cking crazy. Even though this app malfunctions on a broad scale every damn week, it’s still incredibly lucrative. Kylie Jenner earns over a million dollars just for one post, so it’s no surprise that these days, everybody wants to get a piece of the pie. But that’s lead to some pretty crazy strategies by wannabe influencers. For instance, there are users who will buy themselves a product and post a picture with it indicating they received it for free or are working with the company. There are also people who will take the farce one step further and buy robot followers who will like and comment on their posts, all in the hopes of getting that sweet, sweet …

You dont so much interview Lyonne, I quickly learn, as herd her conversations like existential sheep. It is a precise chaos she has a lot to say and is aware of the many limits of time. Her voice crackles across the busy restaurant she moves like Joe Pesci as a …

At Cincinnati Rally, White Trump Supporters Want You To Know They Have Black Friends

CINCINNATI — Donny Hedge, a 42-year-old lineman from Eaton, Ohio, smoked a cigarette Thursday while waiting to get inside U.S. Bank Arena for his first ever campaign rally for President Donald Trump. No, he said, there’s no way the president is racist.  “Look at the support he’s got just from other races. If he was legitimately racist, he wouldn’t have this gentleman right here,” Hedge said, pointing to an elderly black man walking by. “And all these other Chinese, and there’s a multiple different types of races that are standing here in this line to see him.

Oregon Will Allow Students To Take ‘Mental Health Days’ Thanks To Teen Activists

But don’t call it coddling. The students behind the measure say it’s meant to change the stigma around mental health in a state that has some of the United States’ highest suicide rates. Mental health experts say it is one of the first state laws to explicitly instruct schools to treat mental health and physical health equally, and it comes at a time educators are increasingly considering the emotional health of students. Utah passed a similar law last year. Haily Hardcastle, an 18-year-old from the Portland suburb of Sherwood who helped champion the mental health bill, said she and other student leaders were partly motivated by the national youth-led movement that followed last year’s Parkland, Florida, school shooting. Hardcastle, who …

Russian Artist Sums Up What Instagram Is All About (6 Pics)

If you use Instagram regularly, you are probably familiar with the scenario. Someone has traveled to a scenic place, let’s say Rome. They want to show their followers all the beautiful sights in the eternal city – The Vatican, The Spanish Steps, The Colosseum. But do they, really? Usually traveling together with a long-suffering friend (who is mostly there to be a personal photographer), they faithfully tour the well-trodden path, looking not for historical and cultural inspiration but something far more important: a photo opportunity. They are feeling cute today! And so this ancient and atmospheric amphitheater – once used for savage gladiatorial contests at the height of the Roman Empire – is relegated to background fodder; a mere prop …
