Do not come for Chrissy Teigen’s family or food
Having strangers comment on all aspects of her life is nothing new for Chrissy Teigen. She’s been put through the mill on things as personal as how she’s conceived her child to basically every public parenting decision she’s made. Now that she’s about to deliver baby number two, she’s making it clear if anyone comes at her about a couple of sacred things, they better be ready to deal with the backlash.
“You can call me anything — you can talk about my face, my makeup, my clothes, whatever,” she told AOL. “But once you say my food looks bad or I’m not doing something correctly with my child, that’s when I launch.”
Of course, you really don’t want to be on the receiving end of any parent who’s getting criticized about their parenting style or choices they’re making for their family (or a chef about her food), but you definitely don’t want to be on Chrissy Teigen’s bad side. She’s the queen of snarky comebacks because sometimes people just need to see in written form how ridiculous they are.
Being a public figure means she’s developed a pretty thick skin, but she said sometimes it’s best to follow the old adage, “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” She told AOL that fans will often start out by saying, “’I know you’re gonna hate me for this, but I have to say it!’ and I’m like, ‘No, you don’t have to say it.’ I think a lot of people mean well, but it’s all about how things are said or presented.”
For someone who seems like an amazing mom, she still manages to get haters clapping back at her, but she’s made it pretty clear if you want to go toe-to-toe with her, prepare to get your ass kicked. Like when someone judged her for going on a date with her husband, John Legend, too soon after birth and passively aggressively asked her “How’s Luna?”
She also opened up in the interview about the anticipation of becoming a mom of two any day now. “I worry that Luna won’t be getting enough attention with the new baby, so I’m going to overcompensate and maybe give Luna too much attention and not give the boy enough,” she said. “So, for me that balance is going to be really tough. My biggest worry is the attention thing.”
We’re pretty sure she’ll nail the mom-of-two thing as well as she handles all other aspects of her life. And if someone comes for her food or kids, we’ll be here waiting for the fireworks.
