Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are aware they run the risk of being that couple. “There are some famous couples I look at and I’m like, ‘Ugh, we get it. Stop trying so hard, you’re so lame,'” Chrissy said in the December issue of Vanity Fair, which she covers with her picture-perfect family.
She added, “I think people definitely think that about us but. .. that’s because I think of everything.”
The famously candid couple shared plenty of other gems like that in the cover story. For example, Chrissy admitted she used to haunt gossips sites for stories about John after they began dating in 2007. “He was kind of known at the time for either being in the closet or a modelizer,” she said. “I used to go on the websites and it was always either how I was his beard, or how he paid his past serious girlfriends, or how he was with some new model. Oh my god, I would read everything.”
As for John, he has a slightly more earnest perspective on the early days of their relationship. “It got serious pretty quickly,” he said. “She just entertained the hell out of me, texting me. What people respond to in her tweets today was the same energy in those texts. I didn’t know that I wanted someone funny until I was actually with someone funny.”
Chrissy’s charisma actually led John to bond with former president Barack Obama, of all people, at an Obama Foundation event earlier this year. “We joked about how much our wives are loved more than we are now,” John said, alluding to the public’s similar appreciation for Michelle Obama. John doesn’t seem to mind though: “I’m her biggest cheerleader.”
These are the ultimate self-care TV series for some much needed escapism
Between the onslaught of true crime dramas, the daily news (*ahem* Brexit) and harrowing nature documentaries highlighting the extent of climate change, our sofa sessions have become jam-packed with a constant stream of the bad, sad and scary. And sometimes a gurl just needs a break. The solution? Self-care TV.
Here at GLAMOUR, we’re defining self-care TV as the light-hearted, bingeable series that require little concentration. The type your boyfriend will refuse to watch and your parents might roll their eyes over but in actual fact, they’re the perfect antidote to the harsh realities of life.
Cancel your plans and make your way through our edit of the ultimate self-care TV series. They may not be good for the brain cells but they’re good for the soul.
Clueless is getting a modern-day reboot (but there’s a major character missing)
It’s the 90s cult classic film that gave us plaid co-ords and the insult ‘dur’ and Clueless will be back in our lives with hour long TV episodes, but it’s not exactly the same as before.
The show will follow Cher Horowitz’s best friend Dionne, originally played by Stacey Dash, and takes place in Los Angeles 2020. The cast hasn’t yet been revealed and the show is currently being pitched to networks, but the premise sounds like the best clueless reboot dream we could ask for.
“It is described as a baby pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sunglasses-wearing, oat milk latté and Adderall-fueled look at what happens when the high school queen bee Cher disappears and her lifelong No. 2 Dionne steps into Cher’s vacant Air Jordans,” according to Deadline.
There’s also a stellar team behind the show, with writers of classic comedy TV show Will and Grace, Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey, on board, as well as creator of TV drama, American Gothic, Corrine Brinkerhoff.
We’ll keep you updated with more details as they drop.
