Chrissy Teigen Receives Apology From Author Alison Roman
Feud alert! Make way, there are new feuders in the lifestyle industry, after Martha Stewart and Gwyneth Paltrow. This new feud is between cookbook author Alison Roman and Chrissy Teigen.
Alison Roman seemed to appear in a new interview with New Consumer where she made some specific comments. When asked to weigh in on Chrissy’s empire, Alison said, “”That horrifies me and it’s not something that I ever want to do. I don’t aspire to that. But like, who’s laughing now? Because she’s making a ton of f–ing money.” She said this while referring to Chrissy’s successful cookbook, Target line and Instagram empire.
However, Alison went on to receive major backlash from Chrissy’s fans. And the fans weren’t the only ones they got a reaction from. Chrissy Teigen herself spoke out about Alison Roman’s comments saying, “This is a huge bummer and hit me hard. I have made her recipes for years now, bought the cookbooks, supported her on social and praised her in interviews. I even signed on to executive produce the very show she talks about doing in this article.”
Alison Roman Apologizes To Chrissy Teigen
However, Alison issued a public apology, regretting her words.
“Hi @chrissyteigen!” Roman said. “I sent an email but also wanted to say here that I’m genuinely sorry I caused you pain with what I said. I shouldn’t have used you /your business (or Marie’s! [Kondo]) as an example to show what I wanted for my own career- it was flippant, careless and I’m so sorry.”

“Being a woman who takes down other women is absolutely not my thing and don’t think it’s yours, either (I obviously failed to effectively communicate that). I hope we can meet one day, I think we’d probably get along,” she continued.
Chrissy has yet to reply to Alison’s apology.
