Maria Menounos is the heck showing off her fabulous hair, and the 42-year-old media personality didn't deliver it without a message. Maria, recently in the news for filling in for "Live! With Kelly and Ryan" host Kelly Ripa during her recent time off, updated her Instagram on Thursday with a stunning, wild-haired shot, one that included her pet dog, plus a strong warning to those evaluating success with smiling. The journalist and host of popular podcast "Better Together With Maria," definitely proved it's better together. Check it out below.

Smiles Not Compulsory

Scroll for the photo. It comes as viewers to syndicated talk show "Live!" praise the great "energy" Maria had with host Ryan Seacrest, with Maria seeming to prove Little Miss Popular with viewers, some of whom even wanted her for a permanent spot.

Today posting a selfie, the star shared a scrunched-up face as she posed indoors, in a dark sporty top, and by a window, with the gorgeous brunette showing off her tousled and bombshell hair. Dog Winnie was in front of her.

Proving that you don't need to smile for the camera, the Massachusetts native then took to her caption, and it was real talk.

"When asked by an interviewer what I was like growing up...mom said “maria was always smiling.” It’s true I smile ALOT hahha. But sometimes it’s ok not to," she began, adding:

"It’s ok to not feel great. That’s life. We are complicated. We are all having a human experience and that comes with a range of emotions. Now, this is just a fun pic of me and whinnie but it did make me think."

Maria then addressed her dog smiling, saying that she always chooses the snaps where "she's smiling."

"I’m learning a lot in therapy about how we are taught to shun or hide our angry sides because they aren’t acceptable. Ooh but if used properly-it can be so powerful," Menounos added. The star is fresh from yet actually showing off a slight smile as she flaunted a killer braid in a crisp white t-shirt and tight jeans for a "little braid action." See it below.

Maria, who boasts 994,000 Instagram followers, concluded with a little engagement-upping, writing: "So here’s my thought for the day-love all of your emotions. They are your teachers. More on this on @bettertogetherwithmaria for sure . Love you guys. Also-who wins the hair battle here? 😂."

The Emmy winner was quickly told: "Well said" and "true," the latter being said by more than one fan. If you missed Maria filling in for Kelly Ripa, scroll for it. The hoopla even came with her killer legs.
