Celebrity couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are joining the likes of Oprah Winfrey and George and Amal Clooney in supporting survivors of the Parkland, Florida, high school shooting. The Blast reported that the singer and his cookbook author and TV personality wife donated $25,000 to March for Our Lives, the group started by some survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
“We support the students,” Legend told The Associated Press on February 27, 2018. “We’re proud of the students. We’ve already sent them money. We sent them $25,000 to help with whatever costs they have for organizing, and we believe that our gun culture needs to change in America.”
“We stand out among other major countries in the world when it comes to these types of massacres, but also in the everyday gun violence that people have to deal with,” Legend told The AP. “I don’t think that we should accept that as normal. I think we’ve decided that everyone having unfettered access to guns is more important than all of us being safe, and I think we need to reshape that balance a bit so that we’re all more safe. I’m glad these kids from Parkland are saying, ‘Enough is enough,’ and we support them,” John said.
The 32-year-old Lip Sync Battle host made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday (February 19). During her appearance, Chrissy speaks about attending Ellen‘s star-studded 60th birthday party, as well as posing in the photo booth with husband John Legend and longtime friend Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West.
Chrissy also reveals she’s expecting her second child in June! She’s struggling to come up with names for her son. Here are some stills from the show and 2 video previews.
Long, long ago, just a couple of weeks into Donald Trump’s presidency, Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen offered some hope for Americans: they announced that they were forming a book club, warming everyone’s hearts with the delightful prospect of observing the Kardashians engage in some hard-hitting literary discourse, no doubt accompanied by Teigen’s hilarious tweets.
The club was of course always going to be exclusive—sadly, we can’t all cozy up on the couch with Teigen and the Kardashians. Though from the start, the pair used their platforms to make it seem just a bit accessible. Kim, for one, told her millions of followers what it was like to speak to the author of the book club’s first pick, Embraced by the Light by Betty J. Eadie, a ’90s bestseller about the author’s near-death experience. Here’s a never-before-seen footage of their book club that Kim Kardashian posted on her official app!

Chrissy Teigen built a massive following with just 1 cookbook … and now it looks like she’s ready to build an empire around it.
The supermodel just applied to lock down the trademark, “Cravings,” to use on a bunch of home goods. The name comes from her 2016 cookbook “Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat.” According to the docs, Chrissy’s looking to slap “Cravings” on housewares like kitchen appliances, hair dryers, bed linens, towels, comforters, window treatments and more.
Chrissy appears to be branching into the blogosphere, too. Docs show she also applied to use “Cravings” for the name of a blog dedicated to homemaking, lifestyle, cooking and, of course, recipes.
If you’ve been following along with Chrissy Teigen‘s crazy story about her flight to Tokyo, you’re probably wondering how someone got onto the flight without a ticket. We finally have the answer!
Two brothers, who are American citizens, reportedly got onto the flight using the same ticket, which was duplicated. They both were traveling to Tokyo, but had booked flights on separate airlines so they were able to get through security without a problem.
One brother had a ticket on All Nippon Airways and the other had a ticket on a United Airlines flight, law enforcement sources told ABC News. The brothers have nearly identical names and used the same ticket to get on the ANA flight, though it’s not clear how the brother with a United ticket found a seat on the ANA plane. The FBI is considering weighing criminal charges against them.
“During the flight, the cabin crew became aware that one of the passengers boarded the incorrect flight and notified the pilot,” ANA said in a statement. “As part of the airline’s security procedure, the pilot in command decided to return to the originating airport, where the passenger was disembarked. ANA is researching the situation currently to determine how the passenger boarded the flight.”
Four hours into the 11-hour flight to Tokyo, the plane turned around and returned to Los Angeles.
Chrissy Teigen was on a flight to Tokyo on December 26 that had to be diverted back to Los Angeles after four hours in the air… because a passenger realized they were on the wrong flight.
Not only was the passenger on the wrong flight, the person reportedly had a ticket for a totally different airline. Chrissy live-tweeted what happened and instead of having the plane land in Tokyo, the plane rerouted and flew four hours back to Los Angeles.
“Why did we all get punished for this one person’s mistake? Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back? How is this the better idea, you ask? We all have the same questions,” Chrissy tweeted.
Thankfully, she doesn’t seem too upset. She wrote, “I don’t know why I’m not more upset about this. The pleasure I get out of the story is worth more to me than a direct flight to Tokyo.”
