It seems as though Chrissy Teigen is ready to lay it all down on the line…
Because the model and former social media personality reportedly wants to “salvage her reputation” via an Oprah Winfrey interview.
Sources close to the star told Rob Shuter’s Naughty But Nice podcast that even though she’s “being advised to go into hiding and lay low”, she’s got other plans involving a Meghan and Harry-esque tell-all interview.
“Chrissy is in talks with Oprah to do a Meghan Markle sit-down type interview and tell her truth,” a source claimed.
“Chrissy is a fighter and believes that she is such an excellent communicator that there isn’t a mess she can’t talk her way out of!”
The news comes after Teigen issued a lengthy written apology due to the ongoing accusations of bullying she’s been hit with. Multiple former child stars came forward to accuse the thirty-five-year-old of bullying them on Twitter and in private direct messages while they were still children.
One of her biggest accusers was Courtney Stodden, a former model who rose to fame after marrying fifty-nine-year-old Doug Hutchison while they were only sixteen.
Stodden maintains that Tiegen constantly bullied them, tagging them in lots of abusive tweets, which were recovered by fans – one of them even prompted them to take their own life.
“She has sent me so many different tweets. Private DMs, up ’til a couple of years ago. It’s so damaging when you have someone like Chrissy Teigen bullying children,” they said in an old video.
But Stodden hasn’t been the only victim of Teigen’s vile harassment.
Michael Costello from Project Runway is one of her latest accusers who has come forward with his story about how the mom-of-2 tried to ruin his entire career over a misunderstanding involving fake “racist” tweets.
Costello, who is an American fashion designer, shared screenshots of some messages between him and Teigen, in which she threatens his career saying: “You will get what’s coming to you.”
In another horrific exchange, she says “Racist people like you deserve to suffer and die. You might as well be dead.”
In her apology, she claimed she is a “different person now.”
“There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn’t deserve them. No one does. Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding, and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor,” she wrote.
Finishing off the 5-minute read, she says she’s going to “focus on things that are most important,” which includes her family and taking care of herself before thanking everyone for listening.
