Model and cooking expert Chrissy Teigen is Twitter’s favorite outspoken celebrity. The author of the cookbook has a growing 13.1 million followers on the social media platform, following her every thought, joke and TV obsession.
The model regularly participates in social media to share cute videos of her two children Luna and Miles, cooking workshops and the latest in her binge-watching journey through 90 Day Fiancé. In March 2020, Chrissy Teigen made the most of the opportunity to get in touch with such a large community by offering a loaf of her homemade banana bread for the romaine lettuce. Comedian Chris Klemens came to the rescue with a socially distant exchange.
But as with all social media, for Chrissy Teigen there is a downside to Twitter. The former Sports Illustrated model has been the target of trolls linking celebrity to “Pizzagate” conspiracy theories. The hate comments affected her mental health, according to Elle.
With millions hating her at the same time that millions love her, it’s only natural that the model would want to take some time off the platform, and apparently her therapist thought so too.
Teigen’s Therapist Encouraged Her To Get Off Twitter
In an interview with Marie Claire in September 2020, Chrissy Teigen opened about building her desires through Teigen’s lifestyle brand and raising her children despite all of the social media hatred that comes with being the “queen of Twitter”.
To manage her new businesses and family, the model decided it was time to create some boundaries between her and the internet. “I’m barely online anymore, and that was at the request of my therapist,” said Chrissy Teigen to the magistrate.
The author of the cookbook continued: “I didn’t start therapy until the quarantine. I avoided it and made fun of the idea, then I found the right person and it changed my world”. People think I am tough, but I am so empathic, and I take the pain and sadness of others as if it were my own. And when I let people down, I’m hyper-aware of it. Sometimes I get the feeling that people won’t be as hard on me as they are on myself. So it’s good for me to take a break”.
