Chrissy Teigen soaks in family time with husband John Legend and kids on first sober Thanksgiving


Chrissy Teigen opened up truly being able to appreciate Thanksgiving with her husband John Legend and their kids after becoming sober last year. 

Before reflecting on past years when she overindulged in alcohol, the star admitted this is the ‘first time’ she’s been able to ‘enjoy everyone enjoying dinner’ during the holidays.    

‘I used to start my thanksgiving prep with a shot of tequila patron and I’d pretty much take another every couple of hours’ the 35-year-old cookbook author confessed in a lengthy caption on Thursday evening.

She concluded: ‘I didn’t even make any crucial recipe errors this year! Toot toot goes the horn! Anyhoo hope you had a beautiful holiday.’

Additionally, she whipped up a perfectly crispy and golden brown turkey, a pecan pie, and more Thanksgiving staples.

Earlier this month, Teigen and Legend were slammed for being out-of-touch for throwing a Squid Game-inspired party for her VIP friends. 

The group dressed up like the characters and played high-stakes children’s games, like in the dystopian series from South Korea, where indebted players take on a life-or-death competition for cash.  

The internet was quick to call out Teigen for her celebration, pointing out the irony of the ultra-wealthy masquerading as the poor, desperate characters from the show.

‘I’m sorry rich people are literally so tone deaf,’ one critic tweeted. ‘Squid Game was literally about people whose lives were so awful because of being poor that they’d rather play a game of literal life or death to escape going back to poverty and chrissy teigen is really reenacting it in her mansion.’

Another Twitter user said: ‘Taking personal offense at the complete lack of self awareness Chrissy Teigen must have in order to throw a Squid Game-themed party where she watches her rich friends “fight to the death.” The commentary just writes itself…’

Guests included Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Pretty Little Liars’ Shay Mitchell, according to People.

Servers were costumed as the show’s anonymous henchmen and the party was decorated with a huge piggy bank full of cash hovering above, just like in the show.

Social media from the event revealed that the guests had been competing for a trip to Napa and dinner at the Michelin-starred French Laundry restaurant. 

One person added: ‘Usually I’m a fan of Chrissy Teigen but there’s something super f**ked up and weird about spending the weekend cosplaying Squid Game with your incredibly rich friends.’

Teigen has been the target of backlash since her abusive tweets originally made in 2011 resurfaced online, including one that urged a then 16-year-old Courtney Stodden to kill themselves.   

Stodden recently claimed that Teigen has yet to personally apologize for her actions, but Chrissy told TMZ in September that she ‘reached out to’ Stodden via text.

During the same interview, Chrissy was asked about Addison Rae’s backlash for introducing herself to Donald Trump at a UFC fight, which she replied: ‘I have decided I’m not getting involved in anyone’s s**t ever again.’

Chrissy attempted to right a few of her wrongs with an apology shared to Medium in June — which was her first time speaking out since taking a social media hiatus after a host of bullying allegations came to light.

‘Hi all. It has been a VERY humbling few weeks,’ she wrote. ‘I know I’ve been quiet, and lord knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know I’ve been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate “sit here and think about what you’ve done.”

She added: ‘Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past.’

Back in action: Chrissy recently began her first media tour of the year to promote her latest cookbook, Cravings: All Together, a stark contrast for the usually public-facing persona who took some time to reflect on the past these last few months
