Chrissy Teigen opens and reads Rihanna’s mail that comes to her house

Chrissy Teigen Out And About In NYC

I certainly am no Sports Illustrated model (current or former) and I’m not married to a pop star, but I can kind of relate to Chrissy Teigen. She’s a foodie who can admit she likes a big ol’ burrito from time to time and she’s able to poke fun at herself. The 30-year-old Lip Sync Battle hostess just added another thing to the “celebrities are just like us” list when she confessed to opening some mail addressed to Rihanna.

On Tuesday’s episode of The Ellen Show, Chrissy told Ellen that she and her husband John Legend recently moved into RiRi’s former residence in Los Angeles, telling her, “I never in my life thought I would be cool enough to live in Rihanna’s pad.” And, as everyone who has moved into a new place encounters, you sometimes get mail addressed to the former resident. Most of us either merk the latter return to sender or toss it, but if you got something addressed to Rihanna, you’d probably be at least a little curious as to what’s inside the envelope. Chrissy admitted she received some mail addressed to the singer and tried to do the right thing but wanted to do it at an inconvenient time, telling Ellen, “I tried to bring it to the Grammys, but John was like, ‘No! That doesn’t look cool. Please don’t. You’re embarrassing me.”

So, of course, Chrissy ‘fessed up and said she opened a bill, discovering that Rihanna owed $18 to Bugatti. She may or may not may have checked out some of her fan mail as well. When Ellen told Chrissy that opening someone else’s mail was illegal, Chrissy seemed honestly surprised and said, “But it’s my house now! Can you not? Are we going to edit this? This is why I can never run for president.”

In addition to her confession of criminal activity, Chrissy also talked about her daughter, Luna, who at 5-months old is currently undergoing sleep training and is still adorable. She boasted, “She really is such a good baby because she has John’s temperament. Thank goodness!” She also briefly talked politics with Ellen, as she has used her Twitter feed to encourage her followers to register to vote. Not surprisingly, she and John are on Team Hillary. She hinted that maybe Hillary could legalize “a few things” that her younger fans might enjoy, once again knocking any presidential aspirations down another peg. Ellen joked that maybe she could legalize opening other people’s mail. It was a cute interview, which you can see here:

I know she can get a little annoying with her constant social media activity, but I think her heart is in the right place. As much as I am not a fan of Kim and Kanye, Chrissy attacked online trolls who were saying that Kim deserved to get robbed in Paris. That’s admirable.

    I know a lot of people do not like Teigen but I think she is fantastic

    • Wilma says:

      Yes, I really like her too. But…I’m not going to follow her on instragram and twitter. She might be a bit too much to follow. I just really enjoy her talkshow and late nght interviews.

    • amilu says:

      Me, too. I never followed her on Twitter because I don’t Twitter. But she’s always cracked me up on Instagram.

    • LWithHearts says:

      I love her !

  2. Locke Lamora says:

    She is not a little bit annoying. She’s incredibly incredibly annoying. Just like her husband.

    • Almondjoy says:

      She can be annoying and I do get why she grates on most people’s nerves but for some reason I can’t help but like her 😩

      Curious as to why you find John annoying though! Care to share? He seems so chill and sweet to me

      • QQ says:

        Not that I follow him in any way (his Voice is not my thing) but someone said #ONHere once that all the tryhard I find obnoxious about her Including that pressedness to give you Hey Hey Im Sexy But I still drink Beers and Burp! “Guys’ Girl” thing Is a Mirror of him doing the “Female Fantasy Super Sensitive bf” thing … andIt stuck with me.. maybe that’s what I don’t respond in him, Puppy eyes/whiny voice all the Vulnerables… it’s not attractive to me

        And YES Locke… she is such an Instant Eyeroll to me.. also her face is Striking on some angles but I either catch her on said day or most likely never do I have a couple gfs that tell me the same thing about her

      • Almondjoy says:

        QQ! You don’t think he’s genuine?

      • QQ says:

        Nope, She is that Amy Schumer Guy’s girl and Lake Blively, early aughts Olivia japanese Potatoes Munn VERY ZANILY Mixed all together LOL plus a Dash of the Twitter person that’s always giving you their unasked for Opinion

      • Almondjoy says:

        😂😂😂 well tell me how you really feel!!! I’m not on twitter so I hadn’t noticed!

      • QQ says:

        LOL YOU. Made. This.Happen

      • Almondjoy says:

        Also, four stars for using one of my favorite words: ZANILY

        👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

      • Bridget says:

        I feel the same way about John Legend. It was the Grammy’s performance of All Of Me that pushed me over the edge – that song sounds like something guys would say to sound sensitive. Blech.

    • elle says:

      Could not agree more. Tired of seeing her grumpycat face as she deploys her latest scheme for attention.

    • Abbess Tansy says:

      I find her extremely annoying too and awful. I will never forget that she basically agreed with that awful article The Onion had to say about Quevenzhane Wallis. Never.

  3. OSTONE says:

    I wish someday I could pull off her sweater dress and those boots.

    • Nancy says:

      Right. That outfit is amazing, especially the boots. Her personality is a bit too cutesy for my taste, really opening Rihanna’s mail, that’s pushing the envelope a bit far…lol

      • Anon says:

        Ha ha, pushing the envelope. Good one.

        Also, “merk the latter”? Typo of the week. I did a triple take when I saw that. Maybe even quadruple.

        I have no comment about Chrissy’s personality but I really don’t understand her modelling career. She doesn’t fit the look that you’d expect a model to have. Should she not be a model? That isn’t up to me, I know. I just don’t get it, and maybe I don’t need to, either. From some angles and in several photos I see it.. and then when I watch her in motion (like in the Ellen clip above), I really don’t.

    • doofus says:

      word…those boots are amazing.

  4. Michelina says:

    I like her and I love John. Their daughter, Luna, is gorgeous and I love her name. I was shocked to read that she’s only 30 because I thought for sure that she was closer to 40! Makes sense as to why she spends so much time on social media/finds it necessary to fight with people on Twitter all the damn time. I’ve always found her to be very immature, but her being 30 makes it at least a little bit more understandable.

    • Lindsay says:

      She made her Twitter and Instagram private. I wonder how long she will “quit” social media for. The ones that announce it don’t usually last very long… She can be quite funny though and posts some cute and entertaining photos from what I have seen.

  5. paolanqar says:

    She dresses like a Kardashian and that is an absolute no in my book. On the other side she seems more intelligent than the 5 sisters put together and with a lot more sense of humour.

  6. Runcmc says:

    For some reason I thought that was big-time crime, a felony even. Then I remembered my mom is the one who told me that when I went though a phase as a kid and opened letters then threw them out so…uh, it’s not actually a felony huh.

    • Annetommy says:

      It’s not acceptable to open other people’s letters. It’s a pain when they don’t put a redirect to their new address, and loads of people are far too careless about doing that, but if they don’t and I don’t know where they are, I stick them in the post with no longer at this address on them. Don’t open them.

  7. DIRTNAP says:

    Well, it’s been my observation that siblings may share parents but not temperaments. If she wants to live the joys of the sweet baby temperament life, she may want to stop with this one! I have a feeling the next baby would be a Teigen tempest in a teapot, the child that will teach her all the lessons.

  8. Swak says:

    Can someone please explain to me what sleep training is? Why would you need to sleep train a 5 month old?

    • Birdix says:

      It’s a method of letting them learn to self-soothe (aka cry it out) so they can get themselves to sleep and/or sleep through the night.

    • Lovemydmb says:

      You leave a baby to cry all night and not feed them so you don’t have to wake up in the middle of the night. A 5 month old is incapable of “self-soothing.”

      • Wiffie says:

        Uh no, it’s not letting a baby scream all night hungry. There are humane methods of sleep training. It’s teaching them to fall asleep without using you to do it.

        With mine, I sit by their crib on a stool until they fall asleep, hand on chest a couple days. Then it’s by crib but no touching. Every couple days I move my stool a few inches closer to the door into its all the way out. Then when I put them to bed, eventually i can lay them down, kiss goodnight, and walk out with no big elaborate nursing and rocking routine. I feed them every time they wake up, and then resume my post wherever it may be in that stage.

        I couldn’t ever do it, but even crying it out has rules, like checking in in five or ten minute increments. Even the guy who invented the method knows it’s harmful to a child to let them scream with no comfort for hours. That’s awful.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Wiffie – you’re doing bedtime fading, which is, in my personal and professional opinion, so much more psychologically sound than “cry it out.”

    • swak says:

      @Birdix & Lovemydmb, thanks. That does not sound good. A five month old should not be left to cry anything out. And not feeding them? Every child is different. I was lucky as by 5 months my children pretty much slept through the night. Buy my one daughter’s children had stomach issues and were up every 2 – 3 hours and had to eat. If that’s what Chrissy is doing, then that is horrible.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Psycholocigal research has shown that that doesn’t actually wotk. Kids don’t learn to self soothe, they learn not to cry for help when they need it.

      • Lexie says:

        What research is this? Google “sleep training research” and you’ll find quite the opposite. Lots of parents do it (including me) and find it works wonderfully. I have a toddler who is well rested and happy. No shaming, please.

      • Bridget says:

        What a lot of folks consider to be sleep training is the old school ‘leave the baby to cry all night so they learn not to bother you’ – which isn’t particularly great for babies. But sleep training used nowadays is usually far more nuanced than that, and usually still involves going to see the baby and just setting up good bedtime habits and wakeup habits, and some healthy boundaries.

      • Emilie says:

        Lexie the research is called Attachment Theory.
        Also, what you’re calling shaming is just someone having an opinion… They’re allowed to do that.

      • MoochieMom says:

        Sleep Training (it is more training the parents!) worked for my kid and we have zero issues her crying for help or anything else she doesn’t get. We did a timer and if she cried for more than a minute per month, we went to soothe her. It was hard but a good sleep schedule is important for their growth and brain development. She is 5 and will flat tell you, “I am ready for bed,” when she is ready. She usually wakes on her own in the mornings for school now too.

        If I’ve learned anything being a mom it is that everyone has an opinion and you just do what is right for your kid. It does help to listen to other moms though because they might be doing something that can help you out. Lots of opinions but most moms I know don’t let anyone define how they parent their child. Shame isn’t part of my parenting. I do respect opinions and civil discussions though.

    • eto says:

      HUGE eyeroll for the mommy shaming

  9. naomipaige says:

    I don’t like this chick. There is something very sleazy and annoying ,about her. She reeks of desperation. If it weren’t for her husband, I never even would have known who she was. Would anybody have known her without John Legend?

  10. OriginallyBlue says:

    I find her really annoying. It does seem that her heart is in the right place and she says lots of good things, but I can’t take her.

  11. Kate says:

    Not the brightest crayon in the box, this one.

  12. I Choose Me says:

    Aside from being illegal, opening someone’s mail is a serious invasion of privacy. I even feel bad if I open mail not meant for me accidentally.

    Anyway, I find Chrissy charming on the rare occasion but for the most part, I just can’t with her. She’s like Jennifer Lawrence for me in that I can only take them in small (very small) doses. Everything she does is just basically, Look at me! Look at me!

    • Lindsay says:

      Not to mention following it up with revealing the details on national television!

      Did Rihanna buy a key chain? How do you owe 18 bucks to Bugatti? What creepy fan are sending fan mail to her house? They always have official addresses.

      I agree with you. I was surprised at the very cavalier attitude some people have about mail that goes to the wrong address though!

      When I was in my first “used” house as Teresa from RHONJ charmingly calls them I was super attentive to the mail and would always write “Please forward” usually with a little note like Merry Christmas or Have a nice day because people were teasing me that the mail carrier would get annoyed and told to just throw it away. Right after the New Year a lady came to my door and asked if I wrote the note. I said that I did and she burst into tears and hugged me and said “Thank you so much!” It was a letter from her dad who she had been estranged from so he only had an old address. Her wrote her to apologize and tell her he was dying of lung cancer. I was so glad I didn’t just toss it!

      • I Choose Me says:

        I’m so glad you did that. You never know how important or meaningful someone’s mail might be. I always take the time to have mail sent to me by mistake to the post office and drop in into missorts. Once because I knew the guy in passing and he lived just outside my neighborhood, I dropped it off at his house.

      • Kat says:

        I’m with you guys. Who does not know it’s illegal? And then to throw somebody else’s personal details out to millions of viewers! Is she honestly that dumb? Or a Kardashian?

        What if not forwarding the mail meant that Rihanna would get into serious trouble? What if she owed loads to Bugatti, and could not pay as she never got the bill? Again, Teigen – thoughtless and not very smart!

        Creepy fans: I thought many tours point out stars’ houses so maybe that’s a way to obtain an address, or is that a misconception? In any case, I would be quite hesitant to open any fan mail myself (especially if potentially sent by crazy stalker), who knows what could be in it! But again – she’s nosy, intrusive and apparently not very smart.

        Lindsay, your story just proves how important respecting other people’s mail is. Sure, some people are just careless about giving their new address to everyone, but sometimes the other party has the wrong address.

  13. Colette says:

    I like Chrissy.As for mail I used to receive magazines addressed to the person who used to live at my house.I would read them and then donate to library.I also kept some Bed,Bath and Beyond coupons.
    There, I confessed.

    • swak says:

      Reading someone’s magazines or using someone’s coupons is different than opening someone’s bills and fan mail.

    • Lindsay says:

      I received a really fancy Grammy first round ballot and ticket offer. Couldn’t do anything with it you have to log in to vote and show photo IDs to buy tickets. That was cool but they now have the correct address.

  14. Josefina says:

    I like her. She can be too much at times, but she’s funny and nice. She’s enjoyable in smaller doses.

  15. Bobo says:

    Was she joking or is she really that stupid?

  16. cat says:

    I used to like her when she had less than 100K followers on Twitter. She was truly funny, also calling out everyone’s ridiculousness. Now that she’s friends with the Kartrashians, that’s no longer the case. She has morphed into an attention loving person (being nice here). I used to love John Legend because he just made amazing music and was never papped, now he is in a rag magazine week after week. Not to mention the constant political talk. He at least is educated, unlike her, but it’s still super annoying when celebrities feel the need to voice their opinion every chance they get.

  17. Penelope says:

    She’s only 30?? Gah.

    And I triple co-sign her being annoying.

  18. JA says:

    Annoying, Typical “I’m a model but I’m just like you guys…I like pizza, beer and cookies” try hard. Pass.

  19. Micki says:

    I like the coral/burgundy combo.

  20. elle says:

    Just watched the Ellen clip. OMG, what a dingbat.

  21. Naddie says:

    What an idiot. And why the hell people think Rihanna is so cool?

  22. Lana 567 says:

    I love Chrissy teigan she seems like a lot of fun. I don’t get why everyone on this site finds her annoying.

  23. BKittyB says:

    When she called a little girl a “C U Next Tuesday”, she really lost points with me. But since that time she has kind of grown on me slightly. I don’t think she’s as mean as I thought she was but I do think she’s brash and likely says things horribly inappropriate. Unlike Schumer I don’t think she is a racist, and u like J Law I don’t think she’s being fake. She’s just a jerk sometimes, and she maturing. Maybe now since she has a daughter she will chill with attacking children.

  24. Nibbi says:

    her boobs look amazing in that cream-colored sweater.

    i think she’s free-boobing and i wanna do that too. she clearly has amazing boobs that do well against gravity and not sure mine are quite there but man it would be cool if free-boobing becomes more of a thing, and not just for the tiny-chested.

    guess part of it is that i’m having some kind of feministy bra-burning hell-yes-i-have-nipples-why-should-i-be-ashamed? thing (i was in the states recently and was astonished at how hard it was to find just a basic lace or thin material bra, as everything is lined or padded for “coverage”). the other part of it is that i think it looks sexy, if it’s not a sloppy mess tho. fine line to walk i guess.

  25. Mew says:

    Don’t know who she is or what is her claim to fame but her opening other ppl’s mail makes me instantly dislike her very much. No respect.
