It might hurt your feelings if your partner tells you you need to lose a little weight. What if your partner wanted to perform multiple plastic surgeries on you?

Meet Dr. David Matlock, who did just that. His wife first came to him as a patient, and the West Hollywood doc offered her what he called a “Wonder Woman Makeover.” (Via LAIst)

After several surgeries were completed, Matlock took Veronica out on a date and proposed. Now, Matlock says he watches both his weight, and his wife’s. They continue with procedures; he’s undergone some too. 

And they’ve appeared on TV several times, him on shows like “Dr. 90210,” and both were cast members on TLC reality show “Plastic Wives,” which aired earlier this year. (Via ABC)

VERONICA: “I know that my husband’s looking at vaginas all day, and it doesn’t bother me.”

DAVID: “A woman came up to me and said, ‘Dr. Matlock how are you?’ and I said, ‘I don’t remember faces.’” (Via TLC)

They both work out daily and enter bodybuilding contests. But it’s not totally a family affair. Veronica’s 9-year-old daughter Isabella says she can’t see herself having such surgeries.

“It’s not really you, like, I want to be myself.” (Via BarcroftTV)

In case you were wondering, Veronica is 38 years old. David is 49.

Veronica says she consider herself a walking advertisement for his business, and is even featured on his website.

She says no matter what people think, she knows David loves her for who she is, because he says when she first walked into his office, before all the surgeries — it was love at first sight.

U.S. President Donald Trump is clearly not a fan of the national anthem protests that have been taking place in the NFL over the past year.

While at a Friday campaign rally for Alabama Sen. Luther Strange in Huntsville, Alabama, Trump took on a number of things during his speech, including North Korea and Kim Jong Un, the crowd size of the rally and protests by NFL football players.

Trump considers the protests are disrespectful, and used colorful language to say so.

“Wouldn’t you love one of the NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a (expletive) off the field right now. Out. He’s fired!’”

The crowd applauded Trump’s comments.

Trump also referenced NFL ratings, which are down so far this year, and blamed the low numbers on the protests negatively affecting the game. He also blamed rule changes on hard hits.

Trump seems to be taking a shot at former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the driving force behind the protests last year. Many players across many different teams and sports have since joined in on the protest during the anthem, generating attention among sports fans and others at large.

Outrage from some of the country's top athletes isn't enough to sway President Donald Trump after he rescinded Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry’s invitation to the White House and used incendiary language talking about NFL players who peacefully protest during games.

Trump generated controversy early Saturday with Curry after the former NBA MVP said he had no intention of visiting the White House after his team won this year’s NBA championship. Trump responded that Curry wasn’t invited anyway.

At a political rally in Alabama Friday night, Trump called out NFL players who were protesting by sitting out the national anthem, saying that he would love to see an NFL owner “get that(expletive) off the field.”

In the time since, Trump has been called out by athletes across the NFL and the NBA, who expressed their frustrations with the president. Trump was not swayed, however, as he continued tweeting against protesting players Saturday afternoon.

"If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem," Trump tweeted later Saturday. "If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!"

A substitute teacher in Vermont is out of a job after she reportedly taught a group of 3rd graders a Nazi salute.

In a letter to parents, Franklin West Supervisory Union Superintendent Ned Kirsch wrote that a long-term substitute was released after demonstrating the Nazi salute to students at Georgia Elementary & Middle School in Georgia, Vermont, local paper Seven Days reports. Kirsch wrote that students were standing outside the cafeteria when the teacher modeled the position and said “and now we say, ‘Heil Hitler.'”

The superintendent told Seven Days, “I’m at a loss on the whole thing … 

People are shocked. People I’ve spoken to are at a loss for words.” 

Kircsh said that the teacher admitted to the remark and she was “immediately relieved.” He also noted that this is the first situation where the substitute, who is replacing a teacher on maternity leave, has come under scrutiny.

Up to 75 percent of the contiguous United States may provide suitable conditions for several species of disease-spreading mosquitoes according to a new study by CDC researchers.

The recent study, published in the Public Journal of Entomology, found 71 percent of counties in the 48 contiguous states were suitable for the aegypti species and 75 percent could support albopictus species.

Researchers found that the dengue, chikungunya and Zika viruses in particular represented a “growing public health threat in parts of the United States where they are established,” according to the journal’s report.

The maps show the CDC’s “best estimate” of potential ranges of where Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus mosquitoes could survive and reproduce if introduced. The maps do not show where the mosquitoes are currently nor where there is a risk of transmission, Rebecca Eisen, a research biologist with the CDC, said in a statement. 

“In other words, these maps show areas where CDC predicts Aedes aegypti and albopictus mosquitoes could survive and reproduce if introduced to an area during the months when mosquitoes are locally active,” Eisen told the publication.

Temperature is a key factor. If there were just one day in winter on average when the temperature exceeds 50 degrees Fahrenheit, the chances that the area would be suitable for mosquitoes increased. Areas with consistently cold temperatures, however, have reduced chances that the insects’ eggs would sustain through the winter, specifically for aegypti, according to Eisen. Rainfall had a significant influence on albopictus, as it relies more on water courses filled by rainwater to lay its eggs than aegypti.

The maps will help health professionals monitor for signs of the mosquitoes.

“Surveillance efforts can be focused in counties where Aedes aegypti and albopictus could survive and reproduce if introduced to an area during the months when mosquitoes are locally active or at least survive during summer months if introduced,” Eisen said.

The CDC suggested taking the following steps to avoid mosquitoes and potential disease:

  • Wear long-sleeved shirts and trousers
  • Stay in places with air conditioning or that use window and door screens
  • Use insect repellents approved by the Environmental Protection Agency, treating clothing with an insecticide, permethrin.
