Chrissy Teigen Updates: Chrissy Teigen addressed her past charges of cyberbullying in her first television appearance since her last public apologies. The model appeared on the Today Show on Tuesday to promote her new cookbook, Cravings: Altogether, which was launched on Tuesday, and told host Hoda Kotb that she has since thought about her behavior and taken time apart to learn from her mistakes.
Teigen was called out by Courtney Stodden (who uses they/them pronouns) in May, who claimed the Lip Sync Battle anchor was their bully when they were kids. Stodden told The Daily Beast that the model sent them multiple threatening direct messages and tweets at the time.
“She wouldn’t just openly tweet that she wanted me to take a ‘dirt nap,’ but she’d privately DM me and tell me to kill myself,” Stodden explained. “Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die,'” says the narrator.

Teigen has previously apologized for her actions, but on Tuesday she reiterated her commitment to improvement. “I think about what I want my kids’ morals to be and how I want them to treat people when I look at them, and knowing that I wasn’t doing it in myself was the most difficult thing for me.”
“There’s this cliche about ‘I’m glad that happened,’ but it genuinely made me a stronger, better person,” she concluded. “Today marks my 100th day of sobriety. I have a really clear head.” In her statement, the mother of two stated that she had tried to apologize not only to Stodden but to everyone else who had been upset by some of her unkind statements.
“I’m not the same guy who wrote those heinous words anymore. I grew up, went to therapy, married, had kids, went to therapy again, suffered loss and pain, went to therapy again, and lived a fuller life.
AND RECEIVED MORE THERAPY, “‘At the time,’ she wrote. She feels she’s put in the effort and is ready to start an afresh chapter now that months have gone since the controversy. “All I want is that these individuals forgive me and accept the fact that they’ve hopefully seen me improve,” she said.
