Oh Boy, Chrissy Teigen Threw A ‘Squid Game’ Themed Party

Netflix’s Squid Game has become one of the streaming service’s most-watched shows and unsurprisingly, pop culture’s most recent obsession (that and a 13-year-old pug named Noodle that predicts the outcome of your day). It was a Halloween costume staple this year, and as Us Weekly has been telling us for years: Stars—They’re Just Like Us!,  it’s not surprising that many celebrities have jumped on the Squid Game train: Lizzo performed at the Outside Lands music festival in San Francisco dressed as the red light, green light murder doll and Kerry Washington donned a green jumpsuit as Seong Gi-hun (Player 456). And I get it—it’s a show that everyone has been talking about, a show that is aesthetically pleasing (in a “the colors and sets are great” kind of way, not in a “blood and death is pleasing to watch” kind of way), and we all just want to feel like we are a part of the conversation. But it’s also a show about the truly shitty reality of the world that we live in, the deadly impacts of capitalism on our society and the ever-growing wealth gap that is often accompanied by the growing complacency of those that benefit from it.  So sure, the show is called Squid Game, but it’s not all fun and games and we as a society shouldn’t be treating it as such—especially the super rich. 

Cue: Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s elaborate Squid Game-themed party this past weekend. First of all, we are well into Mariah Carey season and this party definitely should have taken place on Halloween. Second of all, never mind, this party should not have taken place at all. Don’t get me wrong, I love a themed party. In fact, I’m still mad at my parents for squashing my Jurassic Park-themed Bat Mitzvah party dreams. But super rich people throwing a Squid Game-themed party where they, as Chrissy cheekily put in her caption, “watch their friends fight to the death” is questionable at best, and out-of-touch for sure.

Squid Game is a critique of capitalism, a dark depiction of the class struggle which portrays the rich assholes who bankroll the games as literal (yet fancy) animals betting on the lives of the less fortunate. Squid Game should have been a giant mirror that rich people like Chrissy and John could see themselves in—not as the players, but as the aforementioned rich assholes bankrolling the game. And while I’m fairly certain that they didn’t murder their friends that participated in their little version of the games, I am 100% certain that they walked straight past that mirror without giving it even the slightest of glances. Newsflash, John and Chrissy: This show wasn’t FOR you, it was ABOUT you. 

That’s not to say they shouldn’t be able to watch and enjoy the show, but it’s truly wild to me that the same person who not long ago took a break from Twitter—not just because of the backlash she received for previously bullying Courtney Stodden, but also due to the general decline of the unique brand of relatability that made her popular on social media in the first place (see: spending $13,000 on a bottle of wine and “loving Parasite)—would think replicating a system that pits the lower class against each other for the enjoyment of the rich for her own personal entertainment, was a good idea. Did she learn nothing from her brief departure from the Twitterverse, or is she just doing her best Melania Trump in that army green jacket impression? 

Look, I don’t have a problem with their lavish lifestyle. I also enjoy the occasional splurge. Just last month, I went all out and paid for new brakes and an oil change for my 2008 Rav4. And boy, does it feel fancy to not hear a screech every time I stop—I get it, totally relatable! It’s just that maybeeeee you shouldn’t be spending that money on a party that glorifies the oppressive economic systems from which you benefit. 

So I guess Us Weekly lied to us, the column should really be called Stars—They Consume The Same Content As Us But Don’t Learn A Goddamn Thing From It! Anyway, I’m really looking forward to John and Chrissy’s White Lotus-themed Christmas Party!

A Comprehensive Explainer Of The Drama Between Chrissy Teigen & Michael Costello

One thing I’ve learned from the internet is that you can never trust what you read. The latest controversy between Chrissy Teigen and Michael Costello proves that, when it comes to internet feuds, before making any conclusions it’s imperative to, as Alec Baldwin would say, “consider the source.” What started off as a pile-on on Chrissy Teigen about which few thought twice has quickly turned into a convoluted tale of alleged faked screenshots, blacklisting, design theft, and more. How did we get here? And when’s the film adaptation coming to Freeform? I’m honestly not quite sure about the former, and the latter is but a mere pipe dream, but I’m here to attempt to make sense of it all.

The story starts, sort of, with Chrissy Teigen. The former Sports Illustrated model has had a rough year on Twitter, to say the least. The tides of public favor started turning against her during the pandemic, when her “I’m so relatable lol!” shtick began to wear thin with some Twitter users—notably, when she told an anecdote about how, one night at a restaurant with her husband, a waiter recommended a bottle of wine that, unbeknownst to the couple, cost $13,000.

one time john and I were at a restaurant and the waiter recommended a nice Cabernet. We got the bill and it was 13,000 dollars. HOW DO U CASUALLY RECOMMEND THAT WINE. we didn’t even finish it and it had been cleared!!!

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 3, 2021

After that, the pile-ons just kept coming, so she quit Twitter in March and later rejoined—at which point, her mentions got even worse. In an interview with the Daily Beast in May, Courtney Stodden mentioned how Teigen bullied them (Stodden is nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns), both publicly and privately. In addition to publicly tweeting that she fantasized about Stodden taking a “dirt nap”, Teigen also privately messaged them things like, “I can’t wait for you to die.” Stodden was a teenager at the time. Teigen apologized, first in a Twitter thread, writing, “I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel,” before vowing to “forever work on doing better.”

But Teigen’s Medium post, which was published a week ago, was what really got the ball rolling with this whole feud. In her 1,131 word mea culpa for her previous behavior and old tweets, Teigen wrote, “I’ve apologized publicly to one person, but there are others — and more than just a few — who I need to say I’m sorry to. I’m in the process of privately reaching out to the people I insulted.” This is where Michael Costello entered the chat, and where things took a weird turn.

Last week, the designer and Project Runway season 8 contestant claimed that he was yet to receive an apology from Teigen, whom he claimed bullied him to the point that he was “traumatized, depressed” and dealing with “thoughts of suicide.”

The incident over which Costello claims Teigen bullied him stems from a spat Costello got into with designer Maxie James in 2014. In a since-deleted Instagram post, James says Costello ordered one of her dresses, and then took the dress and, according to the post, “put it on HIS model took pictures in HIS showroom as if he designed this piece his self.” James also claimed in the post that she tried to reach out to Costello, but he blocked her.

Costello’s cousin Stephanie (with whom he also co-created his brand STELLO) later claimed in a statement that, in fact, James was the one who’d copied Michael’s design, and not the other way around. “I, Stephanie Costello, purchased the garment in question due to the apparent similarities between it and a gown that Michael Costello and I designed that was posted on social media over a year ago,” she said. She further explained that she photographed James’ dress in Costello’s showroom “as a sarcastic and inappropriate attempt to expose the designer’s garment as a forged duplication of our own”. Ms. Costello apologized for the “extremely unprofessional” reaction.

If that all sounds kinda suspect to you, you’re not alone. At the time, people criticized Costello’s alleged design theft, and his purported response is what led to the racism accusations both back then, and also all these years later. According to screenshots that Costello claims are fake, he appears to have written in a comment: “Your Just probably a dumb n***** defending her. I am royalty bitch! I dressed Beyonce! Who are they gonna believe!” (Costello dressed Beyoncé for the 2014 Grammys. He has also dressed the Kardashians and Tamar Braxton, to name a few.)

Back in 2014, Costello’s rep immediately slammed the screenshots as false. “The image was created using image editing software and in no way depicts the views of Mr. Costello,” a statement read. Costello added, “The hurtful screenshot circulating is fake and does not represent my views on society, nor do I condone the use of such a terrible term.” In a 2021 statement, he said the screenshots have “now been proven to be false by Instagram and since taken down,” however, a rep for Instagram told Insider that while Instagram does use third-party fact-checkers to identify and label false information, it does not remove false information. Furthermore, the misinformation policy wasn’t implemented until 2019.

The 2014 statement continued, “The image of concern was distributed by an Instagram account that has continually harassed and slandered Costello in an attempt to defame his character,” and put forth the theory that “a disgruntled intern, who is no longer employed with the company, created the account.”

Chrissy Teigen had something to say about the alleged comment back then, commenting, and later deleting, “So you say all that racist sh*t and get that horrible press with people using the hashtag #michaelcostello to call you out on it, then you create a contest where you beg people to use the same tag but in a positive light. Covered up all the negative press. Genius and shady all at once. Start a PR firm. Xx.”

Fast-forward seven years, and Costello claims that Teigen didn’t just leave that comment on his page, but that she also sent him messages saying things including, “You will get what’s coming to you” and “Racist people like you deserve to suffer and die. You might as well be dead. Your career is over, just watch.” Costello claims that Teigen made good on her threat (to end his career, not kill him!). He says that Teigen and her assistant Monica Rose effectively blackballed Costello and threatened not to work with any people or brands that agreed to work with him.

At first glance, Costello’s allegations seemed to track. Teigen, after all, had privately messaged another celebrity messages that more or less amounted to death threats before. Until people dug deeper into Costello’s purported screenshots and noticed some inconsistencies. Insider points out that, among other things, the verified check mark next to Teigen’s name was missing, and the messages have purple and blue backgrounds—a feature that wasn’t introduced until 2020.

No idea what the fuck michael costello is doing. He just released a statement where he didn’t at ALL acknowledge how fake the dm’s were, & now claims to have emails that don’t exist. So while he conjures those up (hopefully with someone more talented in fakes this time), here: pic.twitter.com/Y9FjJAY3Xw

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) June 18, 2021

In response, both Teigen and John Legend put out statements. Teigen’s team posted a statement on her Instagram on her behalf that said, in part, “Chrissy is completely surprised and disappointed by Michael Costello’s recent attack, which includes fictional ‘screenshots’ from 2014 of supposed private messages that Chrissy did not send.” It also said, “Chrissy has never conspired with anyone to harm his career,” noting that the stylist Costello accused Teigen of conspiring with to take him down did not even start working with her until 2016.

On Friday, Legend tweeted, “Chrissy apologized for her public tweets, but after her apology, Mr Costello fabricated a DM exchange between them. This exchange was made up, completely fake, never happened.” He added, “Honestly I don’t know why anyone would fake DMs to insert themselves in this narrative, but that’s what happened.”

(Costello’s reps were unimpressed by Legend’s response, saying in a statement to EW, “John has been complicit by observing Chrissy bullying many other people on- and offline for years. We are not at all surprised by his biased support of his wife.”

This clusterf*ck doesn’t only involve Chrissy Teigen, though, because after Costello inserted himself into this narrative, other celebrities came forward with… shall I say… less than flattering anecdotes about the designer. On Wednesday, Leona Lewis revealed that she felt body-shamed and bullied by Costello after an awkward run-in in 2014 (a busy year for this guy, evidently). According to Lewis, Costello was supposed to dress her for a charity fashion show. She wrote on Instagram, “When I got to my fitting I was made to feel very awkward and uncomfortable as the dress was a sample size and he/his team clearly did not want to alter it to fit me.” Lewis then says the designer failed to show up to her next fitting, offering the following explanation: “He no longer wanted to dress me and he abandoned his commitments to me and the show which made me well aware that I wasn’t the body type required.”

Costello paints a different picture of that incident, claiming that Lewis’s team simply didn’t give Costello enough time to fulfill their request. He told Page Six that he received the request on January 30th, a week before the fashion show on February 6. He said, “I thought it would be ideal to lend her one of my showpieces all for charity and then have it returned just in time for my show.” That piece didn’t end up working out, and they couldn’t make her a new dress because he was based in LA and the charity fashion show was happening in NY, but asserted, “we could have made something custom for Leona without a doubt” with more time. He also seemed to imply Lewis’s allegations had something to do with his speaking out against Teigen: “It’s bizarre how attitude towards me shifted as soon as I spoke my truth in regards to Chrissy Teigen and others trying to blacklist me,” he told Page Six. He also said, “I have always been a fan of Leona Lewis and she has always adored me. Her team has continuously requested for her to wear us from 2013 up until now.”

(They have since buried the hatchet—Lewis later wrote on Instagram story, “I love you guys so much for the support you’ve shown, there are always 2 sides to every story and that’s clear here but I choose forgiveness.”)

Lewis wasn’t the only one to share an unpleasant experience with the Project Runway alum. Makeup artist and photographer Jordan Liberty also called out Costello, claiming he sexually harassed him while Liberty was going through chemotherapy. Liberty claims that in 2017, Costello DM’d him, complimenting his work and suggesting they work together. Liberty says that as soon as they scheduled a meeting, Costello sent him “a collage of dick pics.” After Liberty generously said he was “flattered” but wanted to “keep things professional,” Costello kept moving their meeting time, eventually saying “really horrible things on the phone” (Liberty declined to get into specifics) when he called the designer for clarification.

On Friday, Costello set his Instagram to private (he has since made it public again). In, where else, an Instagram post, he wrote, “The fact that Chrissy Teigen and her crisis team are working so hard, so strategically to come out against the DMs she sent me, and to downplay the comments she publicly posted on my Instagram, only proves that she is the same bully she has always been.” He then reiterated that Teigen has “gone out of her way to close doors” to his career “by making calls, sending texts, telling colleagues” that she would not work with anyone who’d worked with Costello.

So after all that, where are we left? With two sets of screenshots that may or may not be real, and a whole lot of confusion about who’s telling the truth. Perhaps most hilariously to me, Costello’s rep insisted to EW, ”Michael hasn’t inserted himself into their lives. It’s quite the opposite, as it’s Chrissy who inserts herself into other people’s lives.”

While these two play a public game of “I know you are but what am I”, I need a Tylenol.

No More Cravings: The Rise And Fall Of Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen has been in the public eye, for better or worse, since her rise to Sports Illustrated supermodel fame and marriage to John Legend. Originally praised for her quirky persona on Twitter, her need to be perceived as relatable has been her own undoing as recent cyberbullying and harassment allegations have come out. However, red flags of her eventual downfall have been planted throughout the years by the Tweeting Teigen—so why are we just now holding her accountable?

Chrissy Teigen joined Twitter in 2009, before Lady Gaga wore her meat dress, and before Farmville had anyone in its clutches. It was a simpler time, but by 2014, Chrissy had unwittingly caused her first global controversy. While she was not the cultural juggernaut she is now, she threw herself into hot water by making an ill-timed joke likening an active shooting in Canada to a “Wednesday in America’‘.

At the time, Teigen claimed that she would leave the platform after receiving pushback from her followers attempting to hold her accountable for the flippant joke. Bye Twitter. Taking my talents to Instagram”, she tweeted on October 23rd 2014, basically throwing up a proverbial “get fucked” peace sign before driving off into the sunset her privileged life.

Obviously, that didn’t last. Teigen was back on Twitter by 2015—but not by her own accord. Chrissy’s cringey reaction to John winning a Golden Globe for Selma became an instant meme that suddenly portrayed her as a normal human being. Twitter users began projecting their own personas onto Chrissy (after all, who hasn’t made that face in an awkward moment?), thus making her relatable to them—a characterization on which Chrissy has capitalized for the better part of a decade.

Cementing her role as America’s tweetheart, Chrissy became an adamant anti-Trumper, clapping back at his tweets, as well as anyone who dared speak out against her, or her parenting abilities. Between 2016 and 2020, by playing the part of  “relatable queen”, Teigen gave us a curated glimpse into a part of celebrity life that had never before been presented in such a seemingly authentic way: unfiltered, blunt, and directly from a celebrity source.

But how realistic was that glimpse, truly? The illusion began to shatter in February of this year, after Teigen tweeted about drinking a $13,000 bottle of wine that she said “sucked”. Instead of being angry that such a commodity exists (thanks, capitalism), she instead could not believe that the staff recommended it. The overtly classist remark—in the middle of a global pandemic, no less—was such a deviation from her normal relatability™ that the juxtaposition instantly caused an internet frenzy.

While ordinarily this poorly received joke may have just been a blip on the radar,  millions across the globe sat in their homes struggling during the COVID pandemic, sharing one unique resource most weren’t used to having—time. Time to research. Time to reconsider. Time to re-evaluate. Time to move on from Teigen. After her initial wine tweet, suddenly dozens more tone-deaf and classist remarks resurfaced, like the time she completely missed the point of Parasite, or that time she said her mom treats AirPods like they’re disposable, or, possibly most egregious, the time she admitted leaving dog shit on the floor for her maid to clean up.

These tweets, while probably quirky and good-natured in her mind, were perceived as the exact opposite—out of touch, unrelatable, and even elitist—when brought to light during the largest global recession in modern history. For some celebrities, this type of aristocratic ignorance is expected, and even celebrated, but for Teigen, who built her brand on the mass appeal of being “just like us”, this revelation left many feeling duped, disillusioned and disgruntled.

Citing cyberbullying, and sensing the tides were turning against her, Teigen did what she does best and avoided any consequences of her actions by leaving Twitter in early March 2021. However, less than a month later, the prodigal Teigen returned—just in time for Courtney Stodden to discuss and resurface screenshots of Teigen cyberbullying and harassing them as a teen, going as far as sending them death threats.  Which, ironically, is the exact reason Teigen specified for leaving Twitter periodically throughout the years.

Now several others, such as Project Runway’s Michael Costello and Makeup Instagram Influencer MakeupCrayz have come forward with their own allegations of relentless bullying at the hands of the tyrannical Teigen. As more and more comes out about the model’s malice, the question remains “what took so long?” We hear constantly about “cancel culture”, but celebrities have long insulated themselves from feeling the devastating effects that a public reckoning from the non-celebrity class brings.

While Chrissy’s career possibly could have withstood public outrage, she cannot compete with the cultural coup the pandemic has incited between the haves and the have-nots, and the growing public consciousness of accountability. Courtney Stodden and Michael Costello may not exactly be “just like us”, but they poked holes in the accessible, and perhaps misleadingly unattainable, brand of celebrity relatability that we can identify with. In particular, Stodden being a teen and being told to “take a dirt nap” by a woman nearly 10 years their senior is inexcusable in every sense of the word. We may not be able to eat the rich, but we can hold them accountable.

All The Current Celeb Pregnancies You Need To Know About

Am I the only one who feels like every single celebrity is having a baby this year? In the last month alone, Katy Perry, Lea Michele, Hilaria Baldwin, Teyana Taylor, and Katherine Schwarzenegger have all given birth. Just in the last month!! But the 2020 baby train isn’t slowing down anytime soon. In the past several months, there have been many celebrity pregnancy announcements, from A-listers to reality stars, and it’s honestly too much to keep up with. But we can at least try, right? From the ones you’re sick of hearing about, to the ones you’re not sure if you ever heard about in the first place, here are all the celeb pregnancies you need to know about.

We are pregnant and we are so excited to share it with everyone. Baby #3 ♥ Thank you @clearblue #clearbluepartner #clearblueconfirmed During this unprecedented time, we know pregnant women may be under greater stress which is why we are supporting @marchofdimes Mom and Baby #COVID19 Intervention and Support Fund. Check out their Instagram page to see how they are helping moms and babies get the care they need now and in the future.

A post shared by Ashlee Simpson Ross (@ashleesimpsonross) on

Ashlee Simpson, who is now married to Diana Ross’s son Evan (tbt to Pete Wentz), announced her third pregnancy back at the end of April. You’ll notice that Ashlee’s announcement is part of a trend throughout this list: announcing your baby in partnership with a pregnancy test brand. We thought this was wild last year when Malika Haqq did it, but it turns out she was just ahead of the curve. In a nice twist, Ashlee and Clear Blue also partnered to support COVID relief through the March of Dimes, so this is one case of pregnancy test spon that I can really get behind. Ashlee’s fam is actually super adorable, so stalk her Instagram if you need some cute kids in your life.

HERE WE GROW AGAIN!!! It feels so good to be able to finally talk about this pregnancy! If you noticed I haven’t been on social media much the past couple of months, it’s because I was dealing with terrible nausea and fatigue, on top of taking care of two kiddos during a pandemic. Although this time has its uncertainties, we are so thankful and excited for this baby. I truly believe babies being born during this time are here for a special reason, to be light workers. We are beyond happy to love another baby, to give Emmy and Brooks another sibling and to have our children be so close! #partyof5 #babynumber3

A post shared by Jade Roper Tolbert (@jadelizroper) on

It’s baby number three for Bachelor In Paradise alums Jade and Tanner! After kicking off this year by winning, and then losing, a million dollars in fantasy football due to ~cheating~, things have taken a positive turn for the Tolberts, with their latest pregnancy announcement coming in May. Jade posted this week that she’s at 29 weeks, so we can expect another fall baby. Whether you closely follow these two or not, they seem to be one of the least messy couples to ever come out of Paradise, so I say cheers to that.

We’re having a baby girl 💕

A post shared by Stassi Schroeder (@stassischroeder) on

It was a tumultuous start to the summer for Vanderpump Rules OG Stassi Schroeder, who announced her pregnancy just days after being fired from VPR along with three other cast members for past racist behavior. For those who watched the show, the baby news seemed to come out of nowhere, and the timing of the announcement seemed… strategic. But regardless, Stassi’s pregnancy is definitely real, and she updated her followers later in June that the baby is a girl. As for Stassi’s next career move now that Pump Rules is off the table, we still don’t know, but next week, she’ll sit down with Tamron Hall for her first interview since her firing.

#Preggers 💛

A post shared by Barbie (@nickiminaj) on

Fans were skeptical last fall when Nicki Minaj announced she was retiring to have a family, but it turns out that was half true. She’s released music since then, and even scored her first two number-one songs, but she is, in fact, starting a family with husband Kenneth Petty. She announced her pregnancy with a typically over-the-top photoshoot in July, complete with yellow and blue wigs, bedazzled bikinis, and heels that I don’t believe anyone could possibly walk in. She hasn’t shared much about her pregnancy since then, but she’s been featured on new songs from A$AP Ferg and Ty Dolla $ign, so she still doesn’t seem too committed to the whole
“retirement” thing.

She may not be great at math but at least we know she’ll be well dressed 🥰

A post shared by Morgan Stewart (@morganstewart) on

It’s been a whirlwind summer for Morgan Stewart, who got engaged to Jordan McGraw (Dr. Phil’s son) in July, and announced her pregnancy in August. Honestly, she’s making the most of her time during this pandemic, which begs the question, should I be engaged and having a baby right now? Much to consider. Last summer, people (me) were heartbroken when Morgan announced she and her Rich Kids of Beverly Hills co-star Brendan Fitzpatrick were divorcing, but now she looks happier than ever, so good for her.

I’m pregnant!!! I couldn’t wait to share that my family is growing and we will soon welcome a new baby in our home. I decided to use @ClearBlue because this has always been the most important result in my life. I love how their digital pregnancy test builds excitement by showing a countdown feature, assuring your answer is coming… And for me it displayed PREGNANT! No time for guessing, I need accuracy. Thank you #ClearBlue for delivering this amazing news to myself, my family and friends! #ClearblueConfirmed #ClearbluePartner

A post shared by Khadijah Haqq McCray (@foreverkhadijah) on

This summer, Khadijah followed in her twin sister’s footsteps, and announced her pregnancy with a Clear Blue ad—it runs in the family! For Khadijah, this is her third child with husband Bobby McCray, a former NFL player whom she married in 2010. Khadijah flies under the Kardashian radar, but low-key it seems like she has the healthiest relationship of anyone in their circle.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend already have two of the cutest kids in Hollywood, and they recently announced that they have a third baby on the way. Chrissy did a classic bump reveal in John’s most recent music video, and later officially confirmed the news on social media. Naturally, Chrissy has been having fun with pregnancy content on social media, like when she posted this tabloid headline about herself. We love a queen with a Google Alert set for her name. This week, she shared that her doctor put her on bed rest for two weeks, so hopefully everything is okay, but she said she’s taking this time to learn how to sew costumes for her kids—can’t wait to see how that turns out.

Me…and my two favorite guys 💙💙

A post shared by Emma Roberts (@emmaroberts) on

Last spring, Emma Roberts began dating Garrett Hedlund shortly after ending her seven-year relationship with Evan Peters, and a little over a year later, she announced that she and Hedlund are expecting their first child. She shared that the baby is a boy with a cheeky Instagram caption, commenting that Garrett and her baby are “my two favorite guys.” To anyone thinking about doing an elaborate gender reveal that may start a wildfire—this is enough.

Bindi Irwin

Reflecting on when we found out that we are going to be parents. ❤️ Discovering that I was going to become a mother will forever be a moment where time stood still. I took a test and ran into the kitchen where Chandler was making us tea. He didn’t hear me come in so I speechlessly watched him pouring the water into my most loved hedgehog mug. This news would change the course of our future in the best way. I started crying tears of pure joy and told my sweetheart husband that my test was positive. We were beaming while our adorable puppy Piggy sat on our feet wondering what was going on. It reminded me of just how perceptive animals are. We sat together with tea talking about the future and how we were going to share such wonderful, life changing news with the people that we love. In that short span of time the gorgeous baby I’m carrying became the most important part of our lives. It is such a blessing knowing that this tiny person has chosen us as parents. Our baby Wildlife Warrior is going to be so very loved by our families and entire Australia Zoo team. I can’t wait to find out what this amazing new soul loves in life, and experience the world all over again through their eyes.

A post shared by Bindi Irwin (@bindisueirwin) on

In case you want to feel old today, Bindi Irwin—yes, the late Crocodile Hunter’s daughter—is now married, and expecting her first child. She’s dedicated her life to carrying on her late father’s legacy, including marrying her husband Chandler in a very intimate ceremony at Australia Zoo at the beginning of the pandemic. Chandler and Bindi both work at the zoo, and their baby will no doubt be wrangling snakes before it can form full sentences.

Lala Kent

It was only a matter of time before the Vanderpump Rules cast started popping out kids, and Lala Kent was the second former SURver of the summer to make a pregnancy announcement. She’s currently engaged to Randall Emmett (who already has two adorable kids), and with their wedding postponed until 2021 due t0 the pandemic, what better time to start a family? They announced the news on their podcast on Lala’s 30th birthday, and this week Randall posted an ultrasound—revealing that Lala is 10 weeks along—on his Instagram story. Cheers to these two, because they’ve certainly come a long way since the days of Lala only referring to Randall enigmatically as “my man”.

There’s no hiding this big belly anymore! We are elated to share our news with you! To say we are thankful is an absolute understatement ♥️ #RHOP

A post shared by Ashley Boalch Darby (@ashleyboalchdarby) on

We’ve seen Ashley Darby go through a lot on The Real Housewives of Potomac, and on the current season, she’s struggling with postpartum depression after giving birth to her first baby, Dean. But she’s come a long way since then, and this week, she shared that she and her husband Michael are expecting a second child in early 2021. Looks like her storyline for season six is all set—hopefully she can mostly steer clear of drama with the other ladies and enjoy a smooth pregnancy.

On September 24th, Mandy Moore announced via Instagram that she and husband Taylor Goldsmith are expecting a baby boy together in early 2021. Mandy and Taylor got married back in 2018, and they’ll both be first-time parents. Considering that we’ve known Mandy Moore for basically forever, it’ll be exciting to see her on the journey of becoming a mom.

Some Recent Developments Prove ‘Selling Sunset’ Is Mostly Fake

Since Selling Sunset first premiered on Netflix last year, fans have constantly questioned how real the “reality” show actually is. The show was created by the father of fake reality TV (The Hills’ Adam DiVello), and its storylines and production values all feel a little too perfect to be rooted in reality. The women on the show are in flawless glam at all times, they constantly hash out their personal issues at work functions, and their relationship timelines all fit neatly into eight-episode seasons.

Since the third season dropped earlier this month, Selling Sunset has really blown up, and people are more determined than ever to dig in to the truth of what we see on the show. One of the key storylines that is frequently questioned is Mary and Romain’s marriage. On season one, we saw them disagreeing about fundamental relationship issues such as having kids and buying a house, and then they magically got engaged the next episode. Their wedding was shown in season two, but there was speculation that they never actually got married. Turns out the truth is the exact opposite. This week, TMZ got its hands on a copy of Mary and Romain’s marriage license, proving that they are, in fact, married. But the license was issued in March 2018, more than a year before the first season of Selling Sunset was even released.

This really throws a wrench into Mary’s entire storyline for the first two seasons. She was already legally married to Romain before they even began filming season one, which means that all those scenes of them discussing their future together are basically 100% fake. It wouldn’t be that weird to plan a big TV wedding once you were already legally married, but pretending to be unsure about your future together, and then staging a fake engagement, is taking it to another level. We already knew her diamond was fake, but everything else? I have to admit, this news came as a bit of a shock to me.

Another interesting revelation from the marriage license is that Mary and Romain got married just four months after Mary’s divorce was finalized. The timeline here is obviously very murky, and I have a million questions for everyone involved. Mary hasn’t addressed the timeline on social media (who knows what kind of NDA she signed), but I really feel like the people deserve answers here. That being said, I will absolutely still watch this show until the end of time, because it is just that entertaining.

On top of the personal drama being a bit staged (to put it politely), the show’s portrayal of the Oppenheim Group agents as LA’s top team also seems questionable. Recently, the real estate agents from Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles appeared on Watch What Happens Live!, and Tracy Tutor threw some shade at the cast of Netflix’s show. She said that Selling Sunset “is not about selling real estate…it’s about dating bachelors in the Hollywood Hills.” She threw out an invitation to the women on Selling Sunset, saying “if you want to sell real estate, maybe kind of come on over to our show and figure out how that works.” Ouch. The other MDL agents added that they hadn’t come across the women from Selling Sunset in their real estate work.

Last week, reality TV connoisseur Chrissy Teigen finally binged Selling Sunset, and she also commented on the actual careers of the agents at the Oppenheim Group. She said that despite frequently looking at LA real estate, she has “never seen any of these people,” and added that neither had her agents.

I will say, I look at LA real estate a lot and have never seen any of these people lol either have our agents, who I have obsessively asked.

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 19, 2020

Unsurprisingly, the Selling Sunset cast feels some type of way about these comments, and many of them have spoken out in response. Davina Potratz and Maya Vander both spoke to People, with Davina saying that anyone who does their research will recognize that she is “quite serious about real estate.” Maya  acknowledged that things on the show can seem fake or overly simplified, but said this is because they’re trying to show complicated transactions in short scenes.

Jason Oppenheim responded to Chrissy’s tweet, giving out a nice backhanded compliment about her new home and her agent. In another tweet, he said that his team “works tirelessly,” and invited her to stop by the office any time.

Chrissy, thanks for watching our show! Regarding your agent’s knowledge of members of my team, I respectfully don’t know him either although that doesn’t mean he isn’t successful and didn’t just sell you a stunning home in Weho (seriously, I love your new house).

— Jason Oppenheim (@OppenheimJason) August 19, 2020

In a statement to PeopleJason further combated the idea that the professional side of the show isn’t real: “Any insinuation that the agents on our show are not experienced, successful, or licensed, evidences a complete disregard for the facts.” He added that “Even a superficial investigation would identify previous team photos, hundreds of millions in transacted sales, and more than 50 years of combined licensed real estate experience from these agents.” Damn, okay, we get it.

I understand why Jason Oppenheim is defensive about this, but I think he’s kind of missing the point. For the most part, speculation has revolved around the specific transactions shown in the episodes, not the idea that the Oppenheim Group is a generally successful brokerage. When Christine hops off a private jet after months of traveling the world and just decides to sell a house, it’s understandable that things don’t seem 100% real.

And just as some icing on the cake of questioning what’s real about Selling Sunset, we have this TikTok that recently went viral. On the show, Christine has a listing, and she says that the owner is in Europe, so she can’t get a hold of him. Turns out, the woman who made the TikTok IS THE OWNER. She clarified in comments that she did list the house at one point, but Christine wasn’t the agent, and she’s never met her. And no, she wasn’t in Europe. LOL.

@petite_sayoI had no idea this show became so popular and thought I’d share BTS ##fyp ##realityshow ##realestate ##luxuryhomes ##losangeles ##sellingsunset ##netflix♬ Happy Laughing – Sound Effect

So, let’s be real, Selling Sunset isn’t. And that’s okay! It’s still a great show, but you should definitely take it with a massive grain of salt. Just sit back and enjoy the ridiculousness, and don’t worry too much about what’s real and what’s not.

UPDATED: Why Are Chrissy Teigen & Alison Roman Feuding On Twitter?

UPDATE #2: It’s been over a week since the last update in the Chrissy Teigen/Alison Roman saga, which feels like a lifetime in whatever 2020 hellscape we’re in. Unsurprisingly, Chrissy and Alison both seem to have moved on. Chrissy is posting all over social media as usual, and Alison has been… radio silent for over a week. The last thing she posted was her formal apology note on May 11th, which is odd for her; she normally doesn’t go more than a couple days without posting on Instagram.

Well, it turns out that this whole situation isn’t as over for Alison as it seems to be for Chrissy. On Wednesday, the New York Times told Us Weekly that “Alison Roman’s column is on temporary leave.” They didn’t give any other details, but considering the NYT column is pretty much what put Alison Roman on the map, this feels major. While I felt like her latest apology was pretty comprehensive, it looks like she’s still facing professional fallout over the controversy. If the New York Times is questioning their relationship with Roman, other areas of her business could certainly be affected.

For now, she’s just on temporary leave, so this could blow over by tomorrow, but it’s hard to say. Chrissy Teigen is certainly someone with a lot of powerful connections, so it’s not surprising that Alison Roman’s comments could have a ripple effect on other things she’s involved with. Moral of the story: in 2020, it’s best not to mess with Chrissy Teigen.

UPDATE: It’s been a few days, and as with any good online feud, there have been new developments in the saga of Chrissy Teigen v. Alison Roman. On Sunday, Chrissy Teigen went private on Twitter and said she was taking a little break, but to the surprise of absolutely no one, that didn’t last long.

On Monday, Alison Roman took to social media with a long apology (not a Notes app screenshot, thankfully), in which she called her comments about Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo “stupid, careless, and insensitive.” She acknowledged that her remarks were tone-deaf, and that both of these women have “worked extremely hard to get where they are.” She also explored the toxic tendency to resort to tearing down other women as a way to deal with her own insecurities, and addressed the fact that she, a white woman, used her platform to disparage two women of color.

In the statement, she recognized her white privilege, and said that she aims “to lift up and support women of color,” and that her “actions indicated the opposite.” She included an email address in the post, vowing to read and accept any feedback that people wish to send her. That’s bold, because I can’t even imagine what some of the Instagram comment trolls are going to say to her over email.

Hi— ICYMI, over the weekend there was a bit of a twitter conversation where I was rightly called out for disparaging remarks I made regarding Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo. Even if you didn’t hear about it (!), I feel like this was too important not to share here. I know this is a lengthy note (succinctness has never been my strong suit). I appreciate you taking the time to read.

A post shared by Alison Roman (@alisoneroman) on

After Alison posted her message, Chrissy Teigen responded with a thread on Twitter, and she was receptive to the apology. She thanked Alison for her apology, and said that she just wants the issue to be over.

thank u for this, @alisoneroman. To be clear, it never once crossed my mind for u to apologize for what you genuinely thought! The comments stung, but they moreso stung because they came from u! It wasn’t my usual news break of some random person hating everything about me!

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 12, 2020

She also said that she and Alison “are alike in so many ways,” and talked about learning not to say whatever pops into her head in public forums. Even for someone who seems like she doesn’t give a f*ck on social media, Chrissy can’t just say anything she wants. She’s a public figure, with kids and businesses, and she walks a fine line between seeming unfiltered and saying things that could get her canceled.

Eventually, I realized that once the relatable “snarky girl who didn’t care” became a pretty successful cookbook author and had more power in the industry, I couldn’t just say whatever the fuck I wanted. The more we grow, the more we get those wakeup calls.

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 12, 2020

While Chrissy acknowledged that Alison Roman’s comments “stung,” it’s mostly because she values her talent and her opinions. At the end of the day, Alison Roman may not want Chrissy Teigen’s exact career, but it still seems like there’s a mutual admiration there, and that’s probably more important than one ill-advised comment in an interview. While this may issue may be a bump in the road, I think it’s safe to consider Chrissy Teigen and Alison Roman’s beef squashed for now. Who knows, maybe they’ll be collaborating once this whole quarantine nightmare is over!

As you’ve probably noticed, cooking is having a major moment right now. With everyone stuck at home during the pandemic, people are rediscovering the magic of cooking, stocking up on kitchen gadgets, and posting way too many photos of their banana bread. If you’ve been scouring the internet for recipes during quarantine, chances are you’ve come across many of Alison Roman’s creations. Roman, a New York Times columnist and best-selling cookbook author, has been blowing up, and over the weekend, she got in her first big online feud, with none other than Chrissy Teigen. Sadly, I’m not one of those people who gets excited about trying a new recipe, but this drama is just what I needed to finally get invested in the cooking world.

Last week, The New Consumer published an interview with Alison Roman, in which she talked about her cooking philosophy, Instagram live culture, and her business goals. This last part is where Chrissy Teigen came up. When talking about creating product lines and how there’s “too much stuff in the world,” she said, “what Chrissy Teigen has done is so crazy to me. She had a successful cookbook. And then it was like: Boom, line at Target. Boom, now she has an Instagram page that has over a million followers where it’s just, like, people running a content farm for her.” The phrase “content farm” already sounded negative enough, but then Roman turned the knife, saying “That horrifies me and it’s not something that I ever want to do. I don’t aspire to that.”

Personally, I think Chrissy Teigen’s whole situation sounds pretty f*cking phenomenal, but it’s fine if that’s not what Alison Roman wants for herself. But to call if horrifying? That seems a little dramatic. In this section of the interview, Roman also criticized Marie Kondo for capitalizing on her success with a product line, saying “damn, bitch, you fucking just sold out immediately!” Ouch.

Of course, once these comments were out in the open, it didn’t take long for Chrissy Teigen to be made aware of them. In a thread of several tweets, Chrissy addressed Alison Roman’s interview, pointing out that she’s been a long-time fan, making and posting her recipes, and even signing on to executive produce the TV project that Alison mentions in the interview.

She also hit back at Roman’s comment about Chrissy’s Cravings brand being a “content farm.” She explains that it’s just her and two other women, and that she started the whole thing because she wanted something that was just for herself. She also clarified that having a product line was one of her dreams, not some sell-0ut byproduct of her success.

Throughout the thread, Chrissy reiterated how much she’s loved and admired Alison Roman, and that she was genuinely hurt to read her words. She also added that there is “NO monetary gain yet” from the Cravings website, hitting back at Roman’s comment that “she’s making a ton of f*cking money.” TL;DR: Chrissy Teigen was blindsided and hurt by Alison Roman’s thoughts on her, and took issue with some of the specific claims she made.

No surprise, it didn’t take long for Alison Roman to catch wind of Chrissy’s tweets, and she went into full-on damage control mode. Rather than apologizing, she first tweeted a clarification, saying that she was “not coming for anyone who’s successful,” but that her “business model does not include a product line.”

I want to clarify, I am not coming for anyone who’s successful, especially not women. I was trying to clarify that my business model does not include a product line, which work very well for some, but I don’t see working for me.

— alison roman (@alisoneroman) May 8, 2020

That’s interesting, considering Roman spoke in the same interview about a product collaboration she’s currently working on. It’s a “capsule collection” of cookware utensils, which, although on a different scale than Chrissy’s product line, is still a product line. This just seems like semantics, but products being sold are products being sold!

From there, Roman segued into an actual apology, which makes sense, because I’d imagine her Twitter mentions were a f*cking mess at this point.

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.

— alison roman (@alisoneroman) May 9, 2020

She apologized for the pain she caused Chrissy, and acknowledged that she shouldn’t have used her or Marie Kondo’s businesses as negative examples. She added that “being a woman who takes down other women is absolutely not my thing”, and that she hopes she and Chrissy can meet one day.

I have a feeling it might be a while before that meeting happens, and it’s not just because of COVID-19 travel restrictions. Chrissy pivoted back to her signature spicy Twitter persona, suggesting that she and Alison Roman should probably unfollow each other. Reader, my jaw dropped when I first saw this tweet. It’s just so good.

For what it’s worth, it looks like Chrissy Teigen is still following Alison Roman, so maybe she wasn’t being completely serious, but I still appreciate the drama.

Sadly, Twitter has a way of ruining things, and it wasn’t long before people started coming for… Chrissy? Yeah, I don’t get it either. On Sunday, she shared that she’s been getting some crazy messages since this drama started. It’s one thing to choose sides in a celebrity feud, but there’s never a reason to be messaging someone crazy things about their kids. People are truly the worst.

In her message, Chrissy said she’s going to take a break from Twitter, and she’s since made her tweets private (hence the screenshots). The sh*tty thing about this is that I don’t think it was even that serious to begin with. Alison Roman made some ill-advised comments about Chrissy, but it wasn’t some vendetta against her. They both responded with their thoughts, and that could have been the end of it. But now Twitter trolls are sending threats, and Chrissy’s private, and just like that, the fun Twitter beef is ruined. Ugh.

When it comes down to it, I doubt that Chrissy and Alison will stay mad at each other for long. Especially if Chrissy is producing Alison’s TV show, it seems like it’s in everyone’s best interest for them to get along. Even if Alison Roman says she doesn’t want to be a sell-out or have a product line, I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t mind getting some of those Chrissy Teigen coins. Now that I’m invested in this drama, maybe I’ll actually try making one of Alison Roman’s recipes? *Opens Postmates*

Chrissy Teigen Is Getting Backlash For A Tone-Deaf Tweet

At this point, it’s not an unpopular opinion to say that Chrissy Teigen is basically the queen of Twitter. She’s hilarious, unfiltered, and Comments by Celebs literally does weekly roundup posts of her best tweets. Amidst all of her relatable tweets about marriage, parenting, and just life in general, it can be easy to forget that Chrissy Teigen’s life is like, very different from yours or mine. She’s very famous and very rich, and I’ll just speak for myself, but I am neither of those things. This week, she stumbled into some backlash on Twitter, and the tweet that caused it is pretty hilariously out of touch.

On Wednesday, Chrissy posted a tweet about her mom’s fraught relationship with AirPods, saying that she “buys a few a month,” and says that she wouldn’t lose them so easily if they had a cord. LOL. When I first saw this tweet, I just thought it was funny, mainly because the whole point of AirPods is that they don’t have a cord. Obviously that makes them easier to lose, but AirPods with a cord are literally just every other kind of headphone. Which, obviously, is the joke.

my mom treats her air pods like they're disposable. buys a few a month. she says they would be easier to not lose if they had….a cord

— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) November 6, 2019

But upon a little further reflection, it’s not that hard to see why people had an issue with the tweet. Aside from not having a cord, the other thing that everyone knows about AirPods is that they’re not cheap. Like, there was a time not that long ago when jokes about AirPods being expensive were pretty much the only thing on my Twitter timeline. It’s not like they’re $10,000 a pair, but most people definitely couldn’t casually just buy and lose a few pairs a month.

It’s not headline news or anything that Chrissy Teigen has an above average amount of money, but people on Twitter weren’t thrilled with the flippant tone of the tweet. Chrissy eventually realized this, and apologized in a way that some famous people could stand to take notes from.

Oh man I haven’t checked my mentions for a bit and I didn’t realize how many people were super pissed off about this. It was meant as a joke (and exaggeration) about how my mom doesn’t realize air pods are with a cord are headphones but it came across as super tone deaf and icky.

— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) November 8, 2019

Chrissy first clarified that the original joke was an exaggeration, implying that her mom doesn’t actually go through 30+ pairs of AirPods a year, which is a relief, because damn. But then she smartly owned up to the fact that the tweet “came across as super tone deaf and icky.”

Really, that acknowledgement and understanding is all we need from famous people when they do sh*t like this. No one expects Chrissy Teigen to apologize for being rich (but she could Venmo me if she feels like it), but apologies when you mess up and upset a lot of people are always appreciated. Chrissy continued in a second tweet, noting that she “will not always say the right thing in the right way,” but that she hates “disappointing or pissing you guys off.” She also owned up to the fact that she was kind of an asshole with her first tweet, which just feels satisfying. Everyone is an asshole sometimes, and the world would probably be a better place if we were all better at admitting it.

I promise I will not always say the right thing in the right way but I also promise I hate disappointing or pissing you guys off. I’m sorry and I will do better to not be such an asshole.

— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) November 8, 2019

Chrissy then finished off her apology with a return to classic Chrissy-on-Twitter form, by saying that her typo in the apology tweet is “destroying” her. This is actually me every single time I realize I made a typo in a tweet that already has more than two likes. Twitter, why the f*ck is it almost 2020, and we’re still waiting for an edit button?? I want answers, and so does Chrissy!!

The typo is destroying me

— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) November 8, 2019

In the end, I don’t think this backlash will affect Chrissy in any long-term way. First of all, the initial tweet wasn’t especially egregious—not nearly as bad as the old tweets of like, half the Bachelor contestants. But also, Chrissy owned up to and dealt with her mistake in a way that felt genuine and sufficient, and I can’t really imagine being mad at her after her response. In my mind, Chrissy Teigen is still the queen of Twitter, and that probably won’t change any time soon.

Chrissy Teigen & Donald Trump’s #FilthyMouthedWife Twitter Feud, Explained

Need the news explained, but like, in a hilarious way you can relate to? Subscribe to The ‘Sup and get our 5x/weekly newsletter straight to your inbox.

I love a good Twitter feud, and the more random the better. Today’s feud certainly delivers, pitting MVP Twitter troll Chrissy Teigen against our President, Donald Trump. Both super famous, both prolific tweeters, but how did this come about? Here’s what you need to know about this spectacularly random feud, and how #PresidentPussyAssBitch came to be a thing.

On Sunday, MSNBC hosted a town hall about criminal justice reform. The town hall was hosted by Lester Holt, and featured John Legend speaking to prison inmates about the impact their incarceration has had on their lives and families. During the event, they did not mention a bipartisan criminal justice reform bill signed into law by Trump last year, and he quickly noticed. He took to Twitter late Sunday night to complain about the lack of credit he was given, and the tweets were typically whiney and unhinged.

But in addition to complaining about the specific town hall, he also dragged Chrissy Teigen into the narrative.

Big mistake. Huge.

….musician @johnlegend, and his filthy mouthed wife, are talking now about how great it is – but I didn’t see them around when we needed help getting it passed. “Anchor”@LesterHoltNBC doesn’t even bring up the subject of President Trump or the Republicans when talking about….

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 9, 2019

Not only is Chrissy Teigen the only person mentioned in his rant that he didn’t tag, but he couldn’t even be bothered to use her actual name. Much like the infamous “nasty woman” phrase he used to describe Hillary Clinton, people have already taken ownership of “filthy mouthed wife,” and are using it to declare their opposition to Trump.

Of course, once Chrissy Teigen got mentioned in this whole mess, it didn’t take long for her to make her opinion known. And in that moment, something instantly iconic was born.

lol what a pussy ass bitch. tagged everyone but me. an honor, mister president.

— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 9, 2019

PUSSY. ASS. BITCH. Really, this is a flawless insult, and you know Donald Trump must have been so angry when he saw it. Over the last couple years, Chrissy Teigen has perfected her brand of shade on social media, and she knows exactly how to turn the knife without trying too hard. She seems completely unbothered, but is totally ruthless at the same time.

She followed up the pussy ass bitch tweet with another important point—there was no reason for Trump to even mention her in the first place. She wasn’t even at the MSNBC town hall, so why include her at all? And if you’re going to come for Queen Christine, at least have the balls to say her name.

the absolute best part of his tweet is I literally didn't speak in the special, nor was I mentioned. I'm cackling at the pointless addition of me because he cannot not be a bitch pic.twitter.com/9ZkV7bh4FA

— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 9, 2019

“He cannot not be a bitch” is an accurate description of at least 60% of the men in my life, so I can relate. While the word “bitch” can mean many things, it really is the perfect description of Donald Trump. He’s shown us time and time again that he has one of the world’s most fragile egos, which is 100% crazy considering that he literally got elected President. But in this case, he wasn’t even being criticized! He was so bothered by the fact that John Legend and Lester Holt weren’t talking about him that he had to act a fool on Twitter. It’d be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic and he weren’t running our country.

While Chrissy didn’t have much more to say about Trump (and why should she?), she literally quoted herself an hour later after getting pasta on her new couch. I am Chrissy, Chrissy is me.

fuuuuuuck I got pasta on my couch. karma is a pussy ass bitch

— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 9, 2019

The initial Twitter exchange was good enough, but then Twitter worked its magic and came up with some really excellent jokes about the whole debacle. Here are some of my favorite takes on #filthymouthedwife-gate, which only started 12 hours ago. I feel old.

attacking Chrissy Teigen is the closest twitter equivalent to invading Russia in winter

— maura quint (@behindyourback) September 9, 2019

Honestly, why does anyone in 2019 think it’s a good idea to come for Chrissy Teigen? She’s basically the Princess of Twitter, and her clap-back game is nearly unmatched. It just doesn’t end well if you don’t come correct. I don’t expect Donald Trump to understand this, but he looks like an assclown.

Can I still be a #filthymouthedwife if I’m single? Like I’m probably gonna die an old maid but still

— Carly Booth (@carly_booth8) September 9, 2019

Deep down, we are all filthy mouthed wives. It’s a badge of honor, whether you’re an actual wife or not. Chrissy would want it this way.

waking up to see that chrissy teigen called president fuck face a ‘pussy ass bitch’ is so calming to me https://t.co/zOfJ58WHUl

— lee??‍♀️ (@saltzmantwins) September 9, 2019

Ah yes, there’s nothing more soothing in the morning than lighting some candles, doing a quick meditation sesh, and seeing that Chrissy Teigen is clowning the President on Twitter. Namaste!!

Imagine being president of a whole country and spending your Sunday night hate-watching MSNBC hoping somebody–ANYBODY–will praise you. Melania, please praise this man. He needs you.

— John Legend (@johnlegend) September 9, 2019

Of course, John Legend had to jump in on this too, and he makes the most important point here—why is Donald Trump even watching this sh*t? And either way, why does he care? Bro, you are literally the PRESIDENT. Get a f*cking hobby. Or, here’s a crazy idea, do your job??? I don’t think Melania can save us at this point, but whatever.

And in one of the funnier twists in this feud, #PresidentPussyAssBitch is not trending on twitter, because it’s too profane to feature in the trending topics. But of course, it’s still trending on Twitter, because literally everyone is saying it. Naturally, people started to troll both President Trump and the Twitter rules by sarcastically begging for it not to trend.

I’m very, very serious.

Very serious.

Do NOT allow #PresidentPussyAssBitch to trend.

I’m begging you.

Begging. #PresidentPussyAssBitch

— andy lassner (@andylassner) September 9, 2019

Hopping on the trend, Chrissy even put out a plea, asking us to all stay out of her deeply intimate fight with the President. Hopefully it doesn’t trend, because Chrissy and Donald really deserve their privacy during this time!

no guys no please do not make this trend, for it is my fight with #PresidentPussyAssBitch, not yours!!!!!! https://t.co/hSJ0UxjbaO

— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 9, 2019

Luckily, Twitter is a deeply respectful place, and we would literally never let something so personal trend.

We’re all in this fight together, Chrissy. That being said, I’ll respect your wishes and do my darndest to help make sure #PresidentPussyAssBitch doesn’t trend!!!

— Jon Cooper (@joncoopertweets) September 9, 2019

Are you #TeamChrissy in this feud? I hope so, or else you probably wouldn’t have read this far. I can’t wait to see if Donald Trump comes for her again, but I have a feeling this isn’t quite over yet.

In the mean time, you can show your true colors as a filthy mouthed wife with our brand new Shop Betches mug. You need it, don’t even pretend you don’t.
