Chrissy Teigen still hasn’t apologized personally to Courtney Stodden, btw

Model Chrissy Teigen wearing a Georges Hobeika dress arrives at the 2019 Baby2Baby Gala held at 3Labs on November 9, 2019 in Culver City, Los Angeles, California, United States.

This Chrissy Teigen stuff is such a mess. I can’t believe there are still people taking her side about anything, and it’s crazy to see how many celebrities are still in her comments supporting her. Even if you put the Courtney Stodden situation to the side, Teigen is still a narcissist feeding on being extremely online, and not only that, she’s addicted to the melodrama cycles of “being controversial” and getting attention and then playing the victim. She’s still demanding to be in that weird cycle and instead of, you know, apologizing to Courtney Stodden for telling Stodden to “kill yourself,” Chrissy is writing Medium essays and Instagrams and Notes fauxpologies, all to get more attention. Stodden went to TMZ to talk about Teigen’s latest Instagram:

Courtney Stodden is tired of Chrissy Teigen talking like she’s a victim of cancel culture — they say she’s really just a bully trying to score sympathy points. Here’s the deal … Chrissy recently vented on social media, saying she’s the newest member of the “cancel club” in the wake of her cyberbullying scandal, but Courtney sees that as BS … because, as they tell us, “cancel club” isn’t even a real thing.

On the other hand, Courtney says normalizing bullying definitely is real, and that’s their concern — despite Chrissy’s online griping, if bullies don’t suffer consequences they’ll never change.

As you know, there’s a long history between Courtney and Chrissy … with Courtney claiming Chrissy bullied the hell out of them back in the day and even allegedly told Stodden to kill themselves. You’ll remember, back in June, Chrissy said she’d be privately reaching out to “people I insulted” to apologize for past conduct — but we’re told she still has not contacted Courtney or their team. She’s also still blocking Courtney on Twitter.

One celeb who has apologized to Courtney for previously making fun of her is Jason Biggs … who recently sent them a DM as an olive branch.

CS tells us they’re “done with the games” and they just want to focus on bigger issues, not on Chrissy feeling like she’s unfairly being canceled or victimized.

[From TMZ]

Yeah. Stodden has the moral high ground here, and it’s bonkers that Teigen still has not reached out to Stodden in any way. No DM, no email, no phone call, no card or note or flowers. That speaks volumes about Chrissy Teigen and how she actually feels about this situation. She would rather throw a self-involved pity party on Instagram, complaining about being “cancelled” than do anything substantive to change and become a better person.

    I agree with everything Courtney said.

  2. Piratewench says:

    Doesn’t Chrissy have some kids to raise? I never mom-shame but what the heck is she talking about in that latest post where she’s saying she’s stuck on the couch with nothing to do because she’s cancelled?! She has small children! Lean in to their sweet daily lives, do some extra learning projects or day trips with them, let their little lives distract you and engage you for a while. My god the amount of time this lady has on her hands is astounding. She needs to pick up the phone and apologize to Stodden, and then take stock of the immense blessings in her life and focus on them instead of always looking for asspats from Internet strangers.

    • Snuffles says:

      To be fair. She’s very hands on with her kids. During quarantine I was impressed with how inventive she was in keeping them occupied and engaged.

      That said, her very full life clearly isn’t enough for her and she’s addicted to social media and drama.

      • Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

        It *appears* she’s very hands on with her kids. I mean…while thousands of people were dying every day from a viral plague, she still kept on her full house staff to work.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        She had multiple members of her staff and entourage breaking quarantine to entertain her and her kids. This was not her being a good, involved and creative mom To her children. This was marketing.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      I have never known a mother of two little kids to have so much free time that she’s bored. Most of them barely have time to pee alone and uninterrupted.

    • Marcie says:

      She has nannies, probably one for each child.

  3. gilda says:

    Of course she hasn’t. Her apology was motivated by outside validation, she only ever cared about how her revolting actions impacted her publicly. I’m so pleased to see that Courtney is in a healthy place mentally, and that their bully’s actions no longer have a grip on them. Thrive away!!

  4. Elaine Stritch says:

    I’m amazed at how Stodden has come out of all of this. (Their whole life, not the Chrissy stuff…) I know we don’t know the specifics of their trauma, what they live with, etc, but they seem to be doing well and I really hope they have a life they love from now on.

    • Lucy says:

      Courtney looks amazing in that pic with no makeup. I hope for healing and joy for them as well.

      • clomo says:

        At first I didn’t recognize CS, they look great with not so much eye makeup. There is something so wrong with CT, how can you look at CS and want them to die? She needs to get off social media and as said above enjoy life, she can do anything she want with her millions and she chooses this misery, seeking validation from strangers is such an empty endeavor. On a shallow note, Chrissy’s cheeks look bigger than they used to be.

      • MerlinsMom1018 says:

        They do, right?????
        They remind me of that “classic California” look that was so popular when I was a teenager (waaaaaay back in the mid 70’s y’all 😎)

  5. NTheMiddle says:

    Tiegen has no interest in bettering herself. People that truly want to change don’t act like this. Coulda’ spent Italy $$ on some much-needed therapy.

    • DuchessL says:

      Chrissy is rich – i would think she could afford some manners. Apparently not, not even a bit of remorse. Im even disappointed that John Legend or even her mom, dont have enough influence on her to do the right thing? the advising team should be fired.

  6. Driver8 says:

    Courtney is so pretty in that picture with no makeup. Gorgeous, natural beauty inside and out. I don’t get wtf CT is whining about. She has people who could easily help her get involved with charities to promote anti-bully campaigns. She could literally change the whole narrative without putting in too much work. Plus, it would give her something to fill that empty void. She needs to get off social media. Jfc, lady, you have a life most of us would kill for, enjoy it!

  7. Jules says:

    of course she hasn’t apologized, she doesn’t mean it. all this drama-acting is giving her life. she keeps trying to crawl back into the limelight, and I have no problem with Courtney saying things like they are.

  8. Courtney B says:

    Wow, Courtney is looking so good. And age appropriate. It’s gross how they were dressed and made up when they were basically still young, a teenager. they’re just 26 now and looking fresh, healthy and happy. They even remind me a bit of Cameron Diaz in that photo. Looking at past photos and now—I’m glad they were able to escape their awful family and pervert ex-husband.

    • AmyB says:

      Courtney was essentially groomed by their parents and ex-husband to be some sex kitten; I wouldn’t put much blame on them for the way they dressed in the past. They were 16 years old when their parents gave permission to marry a 50 year old – so gross. I am happy too, to see Courtney flourishing, and emerging for all of that trauma. They look so beautiful with the minimal make-up, and natural look!

  9. Darla says:

    I thought Lainey had an interesting take on this yesterday, and those are words I rarely write. She gave me something to think about. Maybe we, as a pack, have a tendency to look for targets we can feel morally okay about bullying and attacking. And as I well know and certainly Lainey well knows, and people here should well know, an awful lot of people were attacking Stodden and many many other women back then. So…eh, I’m done with this story.

    • Sam the Pink says:

      Eh, partially agree. It is true that a lot of people were awful to Courtney. That is very true. However, I think the difference is that most people did not take time of out their day (repeatedly!) to DM those comments at a vulnerable teenager. Like, this was not telling some mean jokes or laughing to yourself. This was…something else.

    • detritus says:

      Lainey was awful to Stodden too, so when you look through it from that lens her take is pretty self serving.

      Some people will jump on any bandwagon. That doesn’t excuse them (Lainey) if it’s a shit one.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I stated yesterday on this very subject that CT hasn’t apologized, and never will. She is too shallow and narcissistic to sink to the thought of having to apologize! TC should STFU and stay that way. And, who do you know that takes a professional photographer with them on holiday? A self absorbed bitch, that’s who!

    • Robyn says:

      Lainey is problematic AF and has a terrible history with many celebrities, mostly women. She still has lots of work to do herself.

      • Darla says:

        No I know, that’s why i said she certainly knows…and also added that people here should know. Because I know what was happening here at the time. Aniston comes to mind. You want to turn your hair gray…that’s where you’d start.

    • A says:

      Plus, and while this might not be what a lot of people want to hear….how many of us actually had any sympathy for Courtney Stodden?

      No, most of us didn’t send them death threats through private message. But if that’s the benchmark for appalling behaviour, there’s a lot of things that are going to fly under the radar, including the things that many of us said/did/thought about Courtney Stodden at the time. Everyone piled on a teenager who was a victim of an abusive relationship and being groomed. Everyone laughed at them, for everything from their looks to how they talked to their age.

      Sure, no one explicitly wished them death, but the barrage of disdain and hate that people + the media participated in at the time would have been enough for a lot of people in the same position as Courtney Stodden to seriously contemplate suicide. They literally had no one on their side, not even their own family. They didn’t have the tools to even figure this shit out properly. And the world loathed their guts–something many, MANY of us contributed to. I’m pretty sure, at the time, if they had committed suicide, a good chunk of people would have just laughed and sneered and said good.

      There’s not nearly enough of a discussion being had about this, I think. People think they’re in the clear because, “At least I didn’t tell them to kill themselves through Twitter DMs.” But we all know that it doesn’t need to get to that level for it to be bad. While some of the conversation about Chrissy Teigen is actually quite good, a lot of it is just baseless moralizing, particularly from a lot of people who I KNOW for a fact think tasteless jokes about suicide are often funny. There’s not enough self-examination here about the actions that we all engage in that can just as easily contribute to a horrendous environment for a vulnerable teenager in the public eye.

      • Darla says:

        ^^^ agree and well stated!

      • Otaku fairy says:

        +1000. Courtney was clear that all of the misogyny put them at risk, not just what Chrissy told them to do. As important as it is to take what Chrissy Tiegen did seriously, it’s also important to not lose sight of the point you made too. Going forward, are we just going to keep repeating the same mistakes with girl after girl, woman after woman, person after person, over and over again? And if we do slip up in some way, how are we going to handle it?

  10. FancyPants says:

    It’s the Trump/narcissist philosophy- apologizing means acknowledging you are wrong, so Chrissy will never apologize more than the general “my bad” to the Twitterverse. Good for Courtney for doing what they need to do to move past it (and depriving Chrissy of any more attention), that takes a lot of strength.

  11. Soupie says:

    That first photo above makes me want to slap her face, but it’s clear that Chrissy Teigen will never snap out of it. I’m not canceling her. Just ignoring her from now on. Narcissists hate that. Suffer Chrissy. No sympathy from me.

    • Golly Gee says:

      She used to look attractive, but whatever she has done with plastic surgery, her face is starting to look like some sort of ghastly ventriloquist’s dummy. Maybe it’s a Dorian Gray effect come on to a person.

  12. Sam the Pink says:

    She hasn’t apologized because she doesn’t regret it. She’s not angry at herself, she’s angry that this is all coming out now and messing with her businesses, her deals, etc. I hope her businesses go under at this point – she deserves it. I will never purchase from a company that she owns, had a hand in, or shills for. I don’t care if she trots out John and her kids either. She has shown herself repeatedly at this point to be an awful person.

    I am near Chrissy’s age. If things came out about me like this – if I had spoken to people in the manner Chrissy did – online or otherwise – my mother would slap me silly. She would board a plane, fly in, hail a cab, get to my house, knock on the door, and when I answer, slap the taste out of my mouth. Chrissy’s mom lives with her – she has much less to travel! Slap her, mom!

  13. psl says:

    Chrissy, it’s all about her – isn’t it…..

  14. Liz version 700 says:

    Chrissy is probably mad at her bullying victim for outing her. Thus no apology. Chrissy isn’t sorry she is just mad she got called out

    • Otaku fairy says:

      This. How gross is it that she not only still hasn’t apologized to them while throwing her pity-party, but also still has them blocked on twitter? Sure it’s her account and she can do what she wants with it, but that in and of itself is an attempt from Chrissy to reverse their roles in this situation, and a failed attempt to limit Courtney’s ability to address what she did. But in Chrissy’s mind, it’s probably, “how dare this messed up little b bring this to other people? They were supposed to and keep it between me and them, like they had to for years!”

  15. Case says:

    That’s because Chrissy is a narcissist who doesn’t actually see what she did wrong and probably blames Courtney for her “being cancelled.”

  16. detritus says:

    It’s amazing that she feels she’s only done one thing wrong, basically.

    Not that for years she was an out of control bully behind the scenes, no.

    Her take away is the Courtney told on her.

  17. Gubbinal says:

    Narcissists always make themselves the victim–no matter what. And because they are the victim in their own minds, they want people to fawn over them. Stupid narcissists are rarely imaginative enough to think of anything redeeming to do so they are stuck in the “find somebody to bully” juvenile culture.

  18. Lucy says:

    *Mid spoilers for Never Have I Ever, in case you watch it* The free spot as guest voice star Chrissy left vacant was given to Gigi Hadid and, I have to say, she ended up being a much better match to it than I think Chrissy would have been. It just made a lot more sense.

  19. Arralethe says:

    The one time my school even made an attempt to address the severe bullying I went through, they got the ringleaders in a room and asked why they did it!, then fed it back to me as though it was my behaviour that needed to change.

    I’m extremely sorry to see that not much has changed in 30 years. Apart from the fact that PTSD from bullying is now recognised much quicker and the treatments are more effective. CT is a bully, plain and simple – there is no justification for her actions, none. As a society, we really need to apply “shunning” like the Amish – be a despicable human, be treated as though you don’t exist.

  20. Aimee says:

    What Chrissy needs to do is privately (Yes, PRIVATELY) invite Courtney over to her house (just the two of them), cook her a nice lunch or dinner and really APOLOGIZE to this woman. No posting about it on Instagram or Twitter or pap photos from TMZ. If Courtney wants to talk about it that’s up to her but Chrissy needs to do this on her own with no one watching.

  21. Rice says:

    I know that John Legend isn’t responsible for his wife’s narcissism and bullying (that’s all on her), but I’m genuinely surprised that he trots out to defend her whenever he can. If Chrissy were genuinely sorry, his tone and responses would be remarkably different.

    • A says:

      I think that John Legend probably knows his wife in a way that we don’t. It’s easier to make apologies and excuses for the people in our lives when they behave appallingly, when we think that we know the “reason” for why they do what they do that others don’t. It’s harder to try and understand that it doesn’t matter in cases like this.

  22. A says:

    I mean, if we want to talk cancel club, Courtney Stodden has been on it since they were 16 years old. They’ve always been treated as a freak on the fringes of celeb culture. Courtney Stodden is also a prime example of why cancel culture isn’t a thing. When you can parlay the public negativity and attention you receive from controversy to keep yourself continuously in the public eye, when you can make a living off of the negativity & controversy you’ve courted, how exactly have you been canceled? Hating someone isn’t actually canceling them. Hating someone requires focus on the person you’re hating. Actually canceling someone is when you stop caring about them, and when their message and their words subsequently stop having any impact on the public discourse.

    What I’m seeing with Chrissy Teigen is an actual reckoning of sorts with the idea of being a public figure, and publicity in general, especially in the age of social media. There’s something of a discussion being had about what constitutes performativity. What is a “good enough” display of public contriteness, and when is it necessary for catharsis, and when is it not welcome? Sometimes, you need to demonstrate an apology, bc it’s important for the perpetrator to publicly acknowledge their awareness of what they did wrong.

    In other instances, apologies are just performative, and not sincere in the slightest. In this case, people have gotten pretty good at recognizing that what Chrissy Teigen wants most of all is to get the public off her back so that she can seek validation from them again. The primary focus for her are her followers. She doesn’t seem to understand that what people are actually asking from her is to be sincerely sorry for her behaviour. She thinks that it’s just a matter of apologizing to the public, rather than Courtney Stodden themself, and it’s actually really good that people are calling out her bullsh-t on this, because she still simply doesn’t get it. And her utter lack of empathy or compassion or sorrow for the way she treated a teenager who was being groomed and put in the public eye like how Courtney was is just appalling.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      “…if we want to talk cancel club, Courtney Stodden has been on it since they were 16 years old.” That’s a good point too, because there can be double standards for what valid criticism and holding people accountable looks like. Even Reese Witherspoon, in all of her privilege, acknowledged that she and Jennifer Garner benefited a little from that when discussing Britney Spears. Cancel culture is not a thing, but using the wrongs or failures from categories of people deemed expendable as a pass to let out one’s inner Limbaugh definitely is. Courtney was definitely lumped into one of those expendable categories of kids. And it would have been even harder if they had been of color.

  23. SurvivalIsTheGame says:

    GFY Chrissy! At this point she is coming of truly as someone who is not well. I also think at this late stage she is humiliating her husband, and tarnishing his legacy and reputation. I’m so happy that my spouse doesn’t even know who any of these celebrities are, much less reaches out with the most vile, heinous abuse imaginable to them. At this point I hope I never see the name CT or her face ever ever again.

  24. Lunasf17 says:

    That first photo of Chrissy looks like a good advertisement for plastic surgery and fillers gone too far. She looks uncomfortable and ridiculous! Why is that what people want to look like now instead have a wrinkle? I don’t understand this world sometimes…

    • My3cents says:

      The first photo of her is like a Picasso painting come to life, all sorts of different angles and perspectives plastered together on one face.

  25. christina says:

    She often looks subtly sinister.

  26. Midge says:

    Her cheek implants are A LOOT

  27. Ai says:

    Chrissy has learned nothing and at this point, it is clear she doesn’t want to.

  28. Impress says:

    Chrissy looks like a scary caricature.
