Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are very happy together and they just celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary, as well as 11 years together as a couple. So when Chrissy saw a tabloid rumor that they are splitting up, she had to shut it down.
“Oh in touch go f–k yourselves, you exclusively dumb pieces of trash,” Chrissy captioned a screencap of their latest cover, which features the headline: “Chrissy & John: On the Brink of Splitting.”
John celebrated the anniversary on Thursday (September 14) by sharing the below photo. “Anniversa-date. Married 4 years today. Met 11 years ago yesterday. I love this woman deeply,” he captioned the pic.
Vilailuck Teigen is one of the Internet’s favorite moms. Living with model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen and singer-actor John Legend, she makes frequent cameos in the candid videos and pictures that her daughter posts, casually filling the kitchen with homemade sausages or reenacting scenes from Varsity Blues. But Vilailuck (or Pepper, as her family likes to call the spice-loving matriarch) has her own public presence, too, sharing pictures of her farmers’ market hauls, pepper-filled papaya salads, and, like any good mom, photos of her daughter and granddaughter.
Pepper worked closely with Chrissy on her first cookbook, Cravings, and made sure to infuse the whole book with a healthy dose of heat. In a tribute chapter titled “Thai Mom,” Chrissy writes about some of the spicier dishes her mom likes to cook for the family, like jok (rice porridge), pad grapow (stir-fried basil chicken), beef salad, and of course two different kinds of hot sauce. On a recent afternoon while Pepper and Chrissy tested out a new recipe for a soup called tom kha gai for Chrissy’s next cookbook, I called into the Teigen-Legend household to talk about nicknames, spice tolerance, and the importance of carrying ghost chiles around in one’s purse.
Who was the first person to call you Pepper? How did that nickname come about?
My husband. I love hot food, and my name is kind of long. Every time I eat, I have to have peppers or something spicy. Sometimes we even have a contest to see who can eat hotter, and I always win. Read More… Vilailuck Teigen Talks About Her Daughter’s Upcoming Cookbook
