Alison Roman food column on temporary leave and Chrissy Teigen not happy


The beef is crushed, but the drama continues.

If you’ve been on Twitter in the past month, you probably know all about the drama of Alison Roman and Chrissy Teigen. If you don’t know what I’m talking about but you still clicked on it, here is a summary of what happened:

Alison Roman, who is an outstanding cookbook author and food columnist for the New York Times, was taken aback for criticizing Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo.

In an interview with New Consumer, Alison was asked about the “fine line between consumption and pollution” after saying that she did not feel the need to create her own brand of kitchen products.

She pointed out that Marie Kondo of Netflix Ranger with Marie Kondo sells products on her site and accused her of selling.

But the comments that caused the most controversy concerned Chrissy Teigen and her lifestyle brand, Cravings.

“She had a successful cookbook. And then it was like: Boom, line at Target. Boom, now she has an Instagram page with over a million followers where it’s just, like, people running a content farm for her. It horrifies me “and it’s not something I want to do. I don’t aspire to that. But like, who laughs now? Because she makes a ton of damn money. ”

Needless to say, Chrissy was not happy. She went to Twitter to call Alison, expressing how bad she felt.

it was a huge disappointment and hit me hard. I’ve been making her recipes for years now, bought the cookbooks, supported her on social media, and praised her in the interviews. I even signed on to produce the show she talks about doing in this article.

Alison tweeted a short apologies and then shared long formal apologies in depth to Chrissy and Marie.

I have been thinking a lot this weekend about my interview and the things I said. I know it’s a long note (conciseness has never been my strong point). Thank you for taking the time to read.

Chrissy accepted his apology and everything was apparently resolved.

thanks for that, @alisoneroman. To be clear, it never occurred to me to apologize for what you really thought! The comments stung, but they were more spicy because they came from you! It wasn’t my usual news break from a random person hating everything about me!

That is, until Daily Beast reports that Alison’s New York Times column is now on temporary leave after his controversial comments have gone viral.

Chrissy, who has now made peace with Alison, was not satisfied with the news.

@rock_hawk @Olivianuzzi @bariweiss @alisoneroman I hope we can laugh about it one day, but I’m not happy with the NYT vacation so she can’t laugh about it yet. It just sucks in all directions.

Alison has yet to comment on the situation with her column.
