Chrissy Teigen Firing Back At Alison Roman After The Author Shades Chrissy’s Cooking Empire | Alison Roman Faced Backlash:
Alison Roman, who is well known in the lifestyle and culinary world for her bold and unique recipes, commented on Chrissy Teigen’s ventures in the food world in an article published by The New Consumer on Thursday, telling the outlet, “Like, what Chrissy Teigen has done is so crazy to me. She had a successful cookbook. And then it was like: Boom, line at Target. Boom, now she has an Instagram page that has over a million followers where it’s just, like, people running a content farm for her.”
“That horrifies me and it’s not something that I ever want to do. I don’t aspire to that. But like, who’s laughing now? Because she’s making a ton of f–ing money,” she added.
Alison criticized Marie Kondo for “capitalizing on her fame and making stuff that you can buy.” She said, “Like the idea that when Marie Kondo decided to capitalize on her fame and make stuff that you can buy, that is completely antithetical to everything she’s ever taught you… I’m like, damn, b*tch, you f**ing just sold out immediately! Someone’s like “you should make stuff,” and she’s like, “Okay, slap my name on it, I don’t give a sh*t!”
Chrissy Teigen Denies Alison Roman’s Claim | Alison Roman Claps Back After Chrissy Teigen Says Alison’s Bummer Comments Hit Her Hard:
Chrissy Teigen, 34, disappointed by Alison Roman’s criticism, responding: “This is a huge bummer and hit me hard. I have made her recipes for years now, bought the cookbooks, supported her on social, and praised her in interviews,” she tweeted on Friday night. “I even signed on to executive produce the very show she talks about doing in this article.”
Teigen also defended Marie Kondo, tweeting, “I don’t think I’ve ever been so bummed out by the words of a fellow food-lover. I just had no idea I was perceived that way, by her especially. And Marie, too. Marie is awesome.”
Roman faced backlash for her comments on Teigen and Kondo and fans got a taste of jealousy in Roman’s remarks and sent her angry online messages, prompting Roman to fire off some tweets on Friday.
“When women bully other women for being honest about money and how much they do or do not make, well, that’s amore,” The Nothing Fancy author tweeted. “Just wishing I had someone to hold my hand during baby’s first internet backlash.”
In another tweet, Alison Roman wrote, “I want to clarify, I am not coming for anyone who’s successful, especially not women. I was trying to clarify that my business model does not include a product line, which work very well for some, but I don’t see working for me.”
anyhow. now that that's out there, I guess we should probably unfollow each other @alisoneroman

Hi @chrissyteigen! I sent an email but also wanted to say here that I’m genuinely sorry I caused you pain with what I said. I shouldn’t have used you /your business (or Marie’s!) as an example to show what I wanted for my own career- it was flippant, careless and I’m so sorry
