We recently shared what we called “one last tidbit” from our exclusive scoop on Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s vow renewal, but then we heard this bit of juicy gossip and just HAD to pass it on. Days after her Lake Como ceremony, Chrissy gave an interview to People magazine where she blabbed that she and John didn’t exchange gifts for their 10-year anniversary vow renewal but an insider says that’s NOT TRUE. In fact, the couple exchanged new rings, with Chrissy scoring a 10 carat diamond sparkler and John getting a more toned down ring. Why did Chrissy fib? As we previously reported she’s desperate to be liked again and feared blabbing about some pricey ring wasn’t appropriate, especially now with so many people in the entertainment industry on strike and struggling to make ends meet. When she returned from Italy, Chrissy attended a One Fair Wage event (photo above) to “end sub-minimum wages” for restaurant workers- not sure if she wore the ring…
We couldn’t resist sharing one last tidbit from our exclusive scoop about Chrissy Teigen and John Legend‘s wedding renewal ceremony in Lake Como, Italy last weekend. According to our spy, a few guests were surprised that Chrissy and John brought along their children when the invitation specifically instructed guests NOT to bring their kids. The problem? Guests were expected to pay for their own airfare, ground transportation and accommodations, and with rooms at the resort going for over $6000 a night, the tab easily added up. My source says that some guests were miffed that they shelled out so much money to attend, and were forced to leave their kids at home with sitters. “It’s one thing to say no kids allowed if John and Chrissy were picking up the tab for everything, but it’s borderline obnoxious to ban kids and still expect people to pay their own way,” the insider explains.

It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind and that’s exactly what Chrissy Teigen did. We had the exclusive scoop about Chrissy and John Legend‘s wedding renewal ceremony in Lake Como, writing about it days before TMZ, People and Page 6. Our well-informed source blabbed about Chrissy’s plan to wear a RED gown to the renewal ceremony even though she instructed all of her guests to wear black and white – so SHE would really stand out. At the last minute, Chrissy realized it might NOT be a great idea. The LAST thing she wanted was to face any backlash because she was ALMOST canceled when some of her past tweets resurfaced. Long story short, Chrissy opted to play it safe and wore the black gown she packed as a back up. Smart move. The good news is she’s keeping the red gowns so you’ll see her as the lady in red in the future.
We had the exclusive scoop about John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s plans to renew their vows in Lake Como on September 16, and now we are hearing that the bride plans to wear bright RED when she remarries her groom! According to our source, John and Chrissy have asked their guests to dress in formal black and white attire for the renewal ceremony, and Chrissy plans to really STAND OUT by being the lady in RED! She’s bringing a total of FIVE floor length bright red couture gowns with her from various designers, including Dolce and Gabbana, Valentino, and Versace, and she’ll choose which one to wear on the day of her renewal ceremony…Oh, and she also might change a few times!
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are going back to the scene of the crime – they’re renewing their vows in the same place they married 10 years ago! The couple have a lot to celebrate after a rough few years. Chrissy suffered a devastating miscarriage and was almost canceled after some of her past unkind tweets resurfaced. Chrissy and John recently welcomed another baby and decided to mark their 10 year wedding anniversary with an over-the-top celebration in Lake Como, Italy. They’ve invited HUNDREDS of their closest friends and even developed a WEBSITE with instructions for their guests – they’re sticking to a specific dress code so the website includes a montage of photos advising their guests on what to wear to each event. The good times start on Friday, September 15th, and last for three days – wrapping up on Sunday the 17th. Chrissy and John are picking up the tab for the festivities, but expect their guests to pay for their own flights and hotels. On the agenda: a cocktail party on Friday, a lavish black tie reception where they will renew their wedding vows on Saturday, and then a pool party on Sunday afternoon before everyone says arrivederci.
On the plus side, Chrissy Teigen looked gorgeous at The Grammys. The over-the-top pink gown she wore was beyond beautiful and she didn’t flash too much skin or look uncomfortable. But WHERE did she think she was going? Her voluminous (Oscar appropriate) dress had a loooong train and it was totally the wrong thing to wear for the occasion. The Grammys dress code is RELAXED – they say “black tie is suggested” and no one was ever thrown out for not being dressed up enough. The event is young and fun and extravagant rock n’ roll attire is expected – NOT formal attire….
Exactly WHAT is Chrissy Teigen promoting in New York this week? Bras – or her Cravings cookbook? She’s been out and about every day and night – visiting the Wendy Williams show, appearing at bookstores etc, and apparently she left all her shirts at home in LA because she only wore bras- with everything. Granted, they were fancy and often colorful, but still jarring on a business day in New York. Chrissy is working on trying to be forgiven for her online bullying and the bras ARE a distraction. But doesn’t she get COLD?
We’re just about ready to forgive and forget when it comes to Chrissy Teigen. After all, she DOES have adorable kids and her husband John Legend seems like such a nice guy. Teigen HAS been held accountable for those cruel and nasty messages she sent to other women on social media around ten years ago. She lost a lot of work (her cookware was dropped at Macy’s and Target) along with other lucrative cooking related opportunities. Plus the image of her “perfect family unit” was shattered. She HAS apologized and certainly learned a lesson from all this. And if John can forgive her – so can we. The Legends with little Luna DO look adorable taking a stroll in New York this week…
How refreshing it was to hear Chrissy Teigen’s open apology and admission of guilt to the nasty bullying charges made against her by Courtney Stodden. It’s not often you hear an accused party totally admit to guilt and apologize profusely. Chrissy admitted she was “an attention-seeking troll “ ten years ago when she attacked Stodden on Twitter. She went on to say “I’m ashamed and mortified and sad at who I used to be” It was a nice apology, but was it driven by fear of what Chrissy might LOSE if she did not handle this delicate situation correctly? She does have books, various TV cooking projects, a modeling career and a Target deal that theoretically COULD be jeopardized by the present cancel culture. Keep in mind, Courtney Stodden is not a very sympathetic character- she WAS 16 when she married a 51 year old man ten years ago, but observers weren’t sympathetic because she dressed like a stripper. However, Chrissy’s tweets WERE inexcusable. We hope she really DID learn her lesson.
Chrissy Teigen posted the cutest video on Instagram of her kids playing, and they look like miniature versions of their parents. Miles, 2, is easily pushed around by his mischievous older sister, Luna, 4. Miles is already a dead ringer for his good-natured dad John Legend, and little Luna has the looks and traits of her playful mom. The upcoming baby #3 will be an interesting addition to the mix…
