31-year-old model Chrissy Teigen is opening up about the struggles she’s had with alcohol over the past few months! Seems like Chrissy likes to spend her free time drinking, and drinking A LOT!
Teigen spoke to Cosmopolitan.com at an event this past weekend, saying: “I was, point blank, just drinking too much, I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show. And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected. And that feeling, there’s just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It’s not a good look for me, for John, for anybody.”
The writer of the piece notes that the event where Chrissy was interviewed was open-bar, however Teigen kept to sipping her Red Bull, continuing: “Imagine everything we have. Everything is there, always. I don’t know how to go to an awards show and not drink. [It was] really, really wonderful. I would wake up feeling amazing. My skin felt amazing. I was just so happy. Nobody really brought it up to me. They just assumed that it was OK because I always felt OK the next morning. I knew in my heart it wasn’t right. It makes you very short with people. People think it’s cutesy and fun to go on these boozy brunches, but there’s more to it. I’ve never once been like, ‘I’m sure glad I had that boozy brunch!’” She finally added that she’s trying to fix herself: “I used to think it was kind of nutty to have to go totally sober. but now I get it. I don’t want to be that person. … I have to fix myself.” For more of Chrissy and her drinking woes click here.
