Chrissy Teigen told the magazine that she was developing an alcohol dependency problem. She said she was "point blank, just drinking too much," and our hearts actually broke when we heard about this news.
"I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine," she said. "Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show... I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected."
Teigen also admitted that alcoholism runs in her family, and that she has lack of self control when it comes to a one-drink only rule. So, after a family trip to Bali with her husband, John Legend, and her child, she realized that she doesn't need alcohol to feel good about herself. Since then, the model has cut alcohol out of her life for good and has focused on exercising and bettering herself.
"I used to think it was kind of nutty to have to go totally sober, but now I get it," Teigen said. "I don't want to be that person. ... I have to fix myself." We're so proud of her for changing up her lifestyle and being so dedicated to caring for herself! Keep up the amazing work, Chrissy!
