Kim Kardashian Reaches Instagram Milestone, Sharing Shocking Pics

Kim Kardashian really is a changed woman.

And this is very bad news for horny young men around the globe.

Just over two years ago, Kardashian crossed the 27 million follower mark on Instagram and celebrated with a seductive photograph of herself in bed.

“27 mil!!!!! Thank you so much!!!! I love you all!!!!!” Kim captioned the very sexy snapshot in February of 2015.

When her follower count subsequently climbed to 42 million, Kardashian dropped a MASSIVE cleavage selfie on fans in recognization of the achievement.

When she hit 45 million not long afterward?

You guessed it: more cleavage!

But that was before Kim was a mother of two.

It was before she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris this past October and forced to truly re-evaluate nearly every aspect of her life.

Kardashian has understandably become far more guarded since this incident and, by extension, far more clothed.

Earlier this week, she accomplished a true Instagram feat, becoming just the sixth person to reach 100 million followers.

However, she didn’t strip down in celebration. She didn’t show off her boobs. She chose to show off her family instead.

“I CAN’T BELIEVE I’VE REACHED 100 MILLION FOLLOWERS ON INSTAGRAM, THANKS TO YOU GUYS!!!” she wrote as a caption to the above family portrait on her official website.

“TO CELEBRATE, I WANTED TO TAKE A LOOK BACK AT MY MOST-LIKED POSTS. I APPRECIATE YOU GUYS SO MUCH, MORE THAN YOU KNOW,” Kim added.

On Instagram itself, meanwhile, Kardashian not only didn’t reward followers with a new naked selfie.

She didn’t even feature a new picture of herself!

She went with the following image of daughter North West and wrote as another caption:

“She has no clue what 100 million followers means but she’s excited cause i’m excited lol thanks for the follows and the love.”

This brand new Kim Kardashian is probably good for the reality star’s mental health.

But is it good for her future as an actual reality star? Can a buttoned-up, responsible, conservative, more private Kim Kardashian remain a legitimate A-Lister?

No. Not if the failing ratings for Keeping Up with the Kardashians are any indication.

After the aforementioned robbery in Paris, Kim stepped fully away from the spotlight.

She didn’t share anything at all on social media and she didn’t go out in public.

Following several weeks of being on a self-imposed lockdown, however, Kim re-emerged little by little, posting various pictures of her husband and children at home.

“It was time for Kim to get back on social media and back to work,” an insider told Entertainment Weekly in January, explaining:

“That is a huge part of her career. She has obligations to support her family and has an entire team working for her. It was time to get back to normal.”

Well, not normal.

Normal would have previously meant a Kim Kardashian nude spread in honor of this social media milestone. 

The new Kim Kardashian normal is a portrait of her loved ones.

We’re sorry, fellas. But you had to know this day was coming sooner or later, robbery or no robbery.

As for where Kardashian stands in the grand scheme of Instagram, she still has a ways to go before she can threaten Selena Gomez as the most popular user.

That singer is the most followed person on the platform by far, with approximately 120 million fans.

She is followed by: Ariana Grande at 105 million; Taylor Swift at 102 million; Beyonce and Cristiano Ronaldo, both at 101 million; and then Kim.

Kardashian is a solid 20 million followers ahead of the next person in her family, however, although we could actually see Kylie Jenner catching up someday.

She has her own reality show coming out and she remains very open to taking nearly everything off on a weekly basis.

That’s a tough combination. It’s one Kim can’t really compete with these days.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on both Instagram accounts to see if Kylie can someday usurp her sibling. Stay tuned!

14 Shocking Secrets from the Scandal Set

Scandal has solidified itself as one of the most shocking dramas on the air since it premiered in April of 2012. 

There is no subject matter this iconic series will stray away from, and that's what makes it so fresh and exciting. 

But what about when the cameras are NOT rolling?

Based on an article in The Hollywood Reporter in celebration of the series airing its 100th episode, it turns out that just as many stunners have existed on the set as on the script pages.

To wit…

1. The Original Olivia Pope?

ABC originally wanted Connie Britton to be Olivia Pope, but the casting director and Shonda Rhimes were defiant that Olivia Pope was black. Could you imagine just how different the show could have been today? Kerry Washington emerged as the first black woman to topline a drama in 37 years. No, that was not a typo.

2. Shonda Was Against Making Another Show

Shonda Rhimes was a very busy woman. She had Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice on the air, and she initially thought it would be too much to have another show on the air. After sitting down with real-life crisis manager, Judy Smith, Shonda changed her tune, and the idea grew into Scandal from there.

3. Platonic Olitz?

In the original pitch there was no mention of Olivia bedding the Fitz. Paul Lee (Former Head of ABC) called Shonda to see if the relationship could be taken out, but Shonda said the show should not be made without that plot. Behold, the power of Shonda Rhimes.

4. An Internation Flop?

There were even some complaints that a black lead could hinder the show’s chances internationally. It’s great Shonda and company proved the naysayers wrong.

5. No One Wanted To Be President

During pilot season, most actors were spoken for and a lot of them were too expensive for the show. Tony Goldwyn was signed to a Fox pilot and Shonda called him as soon as he was dropped from the project, poaching him for some scandalous scenes with Kerry Washington.

6. Stephen, Is That You?

Scott Foley was a favorite of Shonda’s while he was on Grey’s Anatomy. She killed his character off after telling him she wrote the role of Stephen for him. However, the network rejected him and went with Henry Ian Cusack, who got the role because of his international appeal. Foley moved on to Fox comedy, The Goodwin Games and Shonda poached him to play Jake the day it was canceled. Things are certainly fast-paced in Hollywood.

Cavaliers complete shocking meltdown in OT loss to Hawks

The Cleveland Cavaliers squandered a 26-point lead in the fourth quarter on Sunday to complete an utter meltdown against the Atlanta Hawks.

The reigning champions would eventually lose 126-125 in overtime to slide back into a tie for first in the East with two games remaining in the season.

Credit the Hawks for an inspired effort and not throwing in the towel, but the Cavaliers did everything in their power to lose. In addition to uninspired offense and sloppy defense, Cleveland also reeled off a comedy of errors to produce their eventual embarrassment.

That starts with LeBron James, who committed a five-second violation, two shooting fouls, and tossed an inadvisable inbound pass to Kyrie Irving all within the final 20 seconds of regulation.

Several officiating mistakes also fed into the collapse. For one, Paul Millsap's buzzer-beating jumper to force OT came only after a jumpball was called when in fact two Hawks were standing out of bounds.

Later in the overtime period, James was called for his sixth foul despite minimal contact with Millsap.

Of course, the comeback would not have been possible without excellent play from the Hawks. They hung 59 points on the Cavaliers in the fourth and OT, using six threes, 17 free throws, and by forcing nine turnovers out of the Cavaliers when it mattered most.

Pat Riley: LeBron’s departure ‘most shocking’ part of Heat tenure

Having spent more than two decades with the Miami Heat, team president Pat Riley is more than familiar with the history of the franchise.

While there have been a number of significant moments since Riley joined the team in 1995, the Heat president says that nothing has been more surprising than LeBron James‘ sudden departure in 2014.

"Since I came here, we've had the same owner, same president, two coaches, same support staff," Riley told The Vertical's Harvey Araton. "We've got a bunch of guys working for us who played for us. Players come and go, great players. When LeBron left, that was the most shocking thing to me – not to say he was right or wrong – and the most shocking thing to the franchise."

James was nothing but spectacular during his four years in South Beach, capturing two MVPs, two Finals MVPs, four All-Star appearances, and two championships with the Heat.

Although losing James was a massive blow to the franchise, Riley believes the Heat have been successful in maintaining their identity without him.

"Our culture is the same," Riley said. "You have your up years and your down years, but what can't change is the way you do things."

While Miami has seen more wins than losses since James rejoined the Cleveland Cavaliers, it has yet to come close to recapturing its success, reaching the postseason just once since 2014.
