Chrissy Teigen Gets Candid about Her Struggles with Alcoholism

Famous singer John Legend‘s wife Chrissy Teigen has revealed her struggles with alcohol. According to the model, it has not been a good thing for her, for anyone around her including John.

The mother of one said it all started from one glass of wine while her hair and make up were done and then it became more glasses. Chrissy said she was point blank and just drinking too much.

“I was, point blank, just drinking too much, I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show.

And then a bunch at the awards show. And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected. And that feeling, there’s just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It’s not a good look for me, for John, for anybody.”

Following Chrissy’s ordeal, she was seen at Rose Café in Venice where she was seen sipping from a can of Red Bull instead of a cocktail. The stunning model hosted the rest of the guests at the restuarant.
