“I Have to Fix Myself”
It’s been a tumultuous year for Chrissy Teigen and she is again coming out and speak up about her struggles.
Teigen has never been one to hide her feelings, taking to Twitter with what many would call over-sharing. That’s why it was surprising when she revealed in an open letter to her fans in March that she had hidden the facts she was suffering from post partum depression.
This time, the Lip Sync Battle star is talking about her over-use of alcohol, something she says became out of control.
Scarier still it that no one around her took note that it is an issue for her. She says, “They just assumed that it was OK because I always felt OK the next morning. I knew in my heart it wasn’t right.”
Earlier in the year she posted a video of husband John Legend helping her remove her jewelry after the Grammy awards when she was too drunk to do it herself.
Then, as the spokeswoman for Smirnoff, there was the sponsorship video that shows Teigen getting drunk with her mom.
Guys. It’s official. I’m in a relationship with @SmirnoffUS! I could have gone for a fancy vodka, but I didn't. I chose one that keeps it real instead. Smirnoff is actually a really great tasting vodka, and they aren't afraid to be a little unfancy sometimes. Samesies. Take a peek behind the scenes with me and my mom @pepperthai2!!
So before setting up a variety of travels and visits for a summer of fun with Legend and their daughter Luna, she first did a booze-free wellness visit to Bali, where she not only abstained, but took time to focus on diet and exercise as well for a full reboot.
Teigen has a long road ahead, telling Cosmo that she and John are going to try for another child.
“We’re going to have to do something super hard, which is the IVF process, all over again.”
