Louise Linton, the actress-wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin concedes she doesn’t spend much time watching his television appearances.
“It’s funny, in the beginning every time Steven was on TV I’d be like (gasps), I’d be videoing it,” she told Los Angeles Magazine. “But now it’s like…Oh, there he is again. I usually change the channel.”
But she acknowledged the transition to wife of a Cabinet member has not been easy.
“It all happened so fast: I went from regular girl, an actress trying to make it in Hollywood, to a Cabinet spouse in one of the most polarizing administrations ever,” she said.
“It was overwhelming. I love my husband and I wanted to support him, but the transition to Washington has been my hardest experience. I felt very lonely and isolated; I didn’t have any friends there. I never got much guidance.”
