Chrissy Teigen desperately wants people to pay attention to her mid-life crisis wig

Chrissy Teigen “left Twitter” last week, saying goodbye to the platform with a series of tweets about how she can’t handle criticism. I said at the time that she would probably be back on Twitter in about six months, and that for now, she would be very “extra” on Instagram. So easy to predict. She’s been ‘gramming like crazy ever since she left Twitter, and her new thing is trying to convince her IG followers that this silver hair is new, real and part of a “mid-life crisis.”

So, the hair… it’s not really grey hair, it’s more silver with a blue-white tint. It actually looks really good in general, and it kind of suits Chrissy. It weirdly makes her look younger? But I do think it’s a wig. I think she’s just been taking the wig on and off for several days because in some Instagrams on her timeline, her hair is back to normal and… whatever. All of this over a wig. She really is thirsty for attention. Another tell: if she really dyed her hair, she would have given credit to the hair salon, or the hair salon would have tagged her in some posts. WIG!

As for Chrissy’s deleted Twitter, Courtney Stodden spoke up a few days ago, saying it was pretty rich for a nasty mean-girl bully like Chrissy to complain about people being mean to her. Chrissy has a long history (dozens, if not hundreds, of tweets) of saying rude, terrible things to Stodden, including wishing death on her.

    I can’t stand her

  2. Maddie says:

    So obviously a wig and not a very good one, either.

  3. Alissa says:

    I just find her completely exhausting. and I don’t know who Stoddard is, but she’s right. Chrissy will say stuff fairly thoughtlessly but the instant that things turn on her she freaks out. granted, people have also been extraordinarily nasty to her on Twitter, but a lot of the time it seems like she courts it so then she can talk about how terrible people are.

    • Maddie says:

      Chrissy came for Quvenzhané Wallis when she was only nine years old. Whatever nastiness she receives on social media, is a direct reflection of her own words and actions.

    • MF1 says:

      Agree, I used to like her but now I found her tiring and kind of pathetic. She’s rich, an accomplished cook, with a beautiful family and adoring husband–doesn’t she have anything better to do than post on social media? Like play with her kids or develop a new hobby?

  4. Case says:

    The hair color, wig or not, looks pretty. She doesn’t have to keep talking about it though, lol. It’s not a midlife crisis to try a different hair color, calm down Chrissy.

    I went on a major Insta unfollow spree recently bc I followed too many people who don’t spark joy, and she was one of the first to go.

    • Lemons says:

      This is such a good idea! I checked out of Instagram for a while, but now that I am easing myself back in, I’m deleting everyone that triggers negativity.

  5. BK says:

    I truly think she’s a deeply unhappy person. Pretends to have the perfect life yet is online 25/8 seeking constant validation from strangers. Why aren’t her kids and her husband and her friends and her giant piles of money enough for her to have a satisfying life? This is not normal for a grown adult in their mid 30s. She needs help.

    • Kebbie says:

      It may not be healthy, but it’s pretty common. Millions of unhappy women with kids and husbands perform happiness on social media for validation.

      • Hell Nah! says:

        @Kebbie – Yikes! but I think you’re right.

      • Lolawolf says:

        Right, but do millions of them have access to tens of millions of dollars and almost any experience in the world? I think Chrissy’s situation is pathological and worthy of scientific research. Most people use the internet as an escape because they have nowhere else to turn. This woman could literally do ANYTHING ELSE and she still chooses to sign up for online admiration/abuse from random strangers.

  6. Sunnydaze says:

    What she has said about others, especially the horrific statements to stodden (who openly wishes death on someone?!)…I can’t. I would love to see her talk about how her experiences helped her understand the pain she’s caused others, cuz growth is always celebrated, but nope. And I think the wig makes her look orange. That’s all.

    • Case says:

      It’s disturbing she’s been named People’s “Most Beautiful” for this reason. She’s objectively a pretty woman, but her behavior makes her so ugly. That shouldn’t be ignored.

  7. Mina_Esq says:

    That’s a wig for sure. And her attacks on Stodden were disgusting. Stodden was literally a child trafficked to a gross old man. She deserved our help, not our cheap shots. But anyway, I enjoy some of Chrissy’s shenanigans (having to do with food, fashion and cute kid stuff) and think that Insta is probably a more tolerable platform on which to follow her.

    • ClaraBelle says:

      Yes, Stodden is pitiful and a very sad case. And she was cruelly played by Megan Fox’s husband shortly after Megan left him. I guess Stodden just wasn’t in on the joke. For Teigen to go after her is really low. I never paid that much attention to Teigen but thought she was kind of an appealing person (loved her anti-Trump tweets)….but going after Stodden was a last straw for me. She needs to get “woke” and apologize.

  8. lobstah says:

    She feeds off attention — good and bad. She loves the adoration, the likes, and the nasty comments that allow her to “clap back”. Grow up, get off social media, and go spend time with your family, Chrissy.

    • Kelly says:

      I agree, and this is why I find social media in general (and twitter in particular) to be so toxic. People start molding their personalities after what their followers want to see, and what unhappy people want to see online are catfights and bringing each other down. When you live with a phone glued to your hand, this kind of mentality is so toxic. It gives you the opportunity to be the high school bully, except worse, because you also get to play that role when you’re at your house in your bed at 3AM.

      When you’re the sassy one with the receipts and the comebacks you feel like the queen of the world, until you make a mistake like humans do and suddenly you find yourself in the middle of the hurricane and all these followers who loved you are now telling you to f*ck yourself. That’s what makes searching validation online so toxic – you can go from everyone’s favorite to public enemy #1 in a minute.

      Instagram in general is a lot less toxic than twitter imo, but what this woman needs is to log off the damn internet for a bit. Figure out what her actual personality is beyond the facades she puts online.

      • Jules says:

        Social media is not toxic on its own, it’s how people use it. So it is simply a way for toxic people to be toxic publicly. The root of the crappy behavior comes from humans.

  9. Oh_Hey says:

    I personally can’t stand Chrissy but I always hear about her because she’s my husbands hall pass.

    She’s…something and I’ll be glad when she fades into obscurity. But given the hubby I’ll be sick with her until she’s 90.

  10. MsIam says:

    Ugh, again with her? I think the Kardashian’s are less annoying than this one and they are uber thirsty.

  11. whateveryousay says:

    I honestly think that she should listen to her therapist and just stay off of social media full stop. She seems desperately unhappy and seemed to get some sort of boost when she got likes/retweets and even if people were having a go at her, she seemed to thrive on it. John is barely on Twitter unless using it to discuss an upcoming project/music video, etc.

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree. I don’t know why she’s not taking that very good advice, other than she’s addicted to it and feeds off of the attention. It’s not good for her, or her family. If she wants to maintain a presence for her career, she should hire someone to do her work stuff for a while and leave it alone.

  12. psl says:

    Why does she look like Kylie Jenner?
    Everyone looks the same now. I hate it.

  13. Midge says:

    She needs to go away for a little bit and get better.

  14. Winter Day says:

    Chrissy is an energy vampire. Every time I look at her I feel exhausted. Like nap time exhausted. I can’t imagine having a friend like that. She is more exhausting than trying to potty train a little puppy.

    • coffee_coffee_coffee says:

      yes, never thought of it this way, but yes! She has it all, but it feels like it’s never enough and if she was my friend, we’d have an intervention of sorts about the constant thirst. At first i thought it was a social media strategy, but now it’s just desperate and i have second-hand embarrassment, which is hilarious considering I am working from my basement and she’s who she is!

  15. L says:

    Does she have borderline personality disorder? Or is she just deeply unstable?

    • TD says:

      This may be my personal sensitivity as someone with mental health issues, but I’m a little uncomfortable projecting a diagnosis onto bad behavior. As the poster above said, she’s definitely an energy vampire and obviously has issues, but I don’t know that they line up with with BPD. Ymmv!

    • Jules says:

      I don’t think it is a stretch at all to wonder if she has a personality disorder…

    • Amando says:

      Didn’t she get sober recently? Could be adjusting to sober life. A newly sober addict’s emotions are all over the place. Besides that, she does seem like a very unhappy person who constantly needs validation from others.
