Chrissy Teigen has expressed disappointment at the news that her former nemesis Alison Roman has been put on "temporary leave" from the New York Times. Chrissy Teigen revealed via Twitter recently that she makes "zero money" from her beloved Cravings website, which crashed just after launching in November 2019 because so many people were trying to access it. And then it was like: Boom, line at Target. "I don't want to be a person like that". Man, that makes it sound like she had to turn in her badge and her spatula. She had a successful cookbook.
"Like the idea that when Marie Kondo made a decision to capitalize on her fame and make stuff that you can buy, that is completely antithetical to everything she's ever taught you", she noted. "I don't aspire to that".
Because after the Chrissy's Court judge issued a verdict on Alison Roman's controversial comments about her, the food writer's column seems to have been 86ed from the NY Times' menu!
The comments sparked a wide-ranging conversation on social media about white privilege, white feminism, a lack of diversity in food media, casual racism, hollow apologies, women who take down women, online conspiracy theories, the inanity of celebrity feuds and other topics, some obviously more weighty than others.
Tiegen later said she accepted Roman's apology.
"My friends are literally writing, saying, 'Mine hasn't gotten here yet.' Well, that's because I didn't send it to you". Roman subsequently apologized to Teigen and clutter queen Marie Kondo, who also came in for some snark in the same interview.
Weissman said: "I'm sorry, but if the Times is going to suspend Alison Roman-which, really?-what's its justification for running a column by Bret "Disease of the Arab Mind" Stephens".
"I very publicly forgave Alison and that was real", Teigen wrote on Twitter. Roman brought up that Teigen had exploded as a cooking star despite a modest background in the culinary field. "When I said I don't believe in being cancelled for your honest opinion, that was very real". Responding to a Twitter comment asking if the "beef" was over between her and Roman, Teigen tweeted, "I hope we can laugh about it one day but I'm not happy with the NYT leave so she def can't laugh about it yet".
"Among the many uncomfortable things I've begun processing is the knowledge that my comments were rooted in my own insecurity", Romans wrote in a social media post last Friday.
