Chrissy Teigen has been known for years as someone who is open, honest, and very direct in her communication style. So when people gave her some flack for getting a second nose swab during the current crisis, she shared a topless post and explained that she had to be retested because she’s getting rid of her breast implants.
In fact, the popular Lip Sync Battle host took to social media to say goodbye to her breast implants and explain exactly what was going on. According to Chrissy Teigen, she basically is tired of being uncomfortable in her own skin, though she says her boobs have “been great to me for many years.”
The only reason we even know this whole thing is going down is because Chrissy Teigen, bless her heart, shared a video of herself getting a second nose swab test whilst home to make sure she wasn’t positive for disease. It’s an amusing video, but it prompted backlash from some given people have struggled and been unable to get tests. Meanwhile. Teigen has been tested twice.
As a direct result, Chrissy Teigen felt she needed to explain exactly why she needed to be tested and it’s all to do with saying goodbye to her breast implants.
It’s not that often that famous people will literally bare all on the Internet. The image Teigen shared isn’t exactly racy given it’s tastefully applied little hearts, but Chrissy Teigen is still sharing a lot of information many women probably wouldn’t prefer to be out in the universe, much less share with others personally. It is totally on brand for Teigen to defend herself amidst any questions or controversy, however, and it’s refreshing to see someone be so honest with themselves.
In the past, Chrissy Teigen has shown similar approaches to other aspects of her life. She recently shared exactly how her boobs ended up in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. She’s been open about the times she and her husband John Legend haven’t gotten along – including having a row at Kim Kardashian and Kayne West’s wedding. She’s also been open about struggling some with alcohol and figuring out how to imbibe responsibly.
In the meantime, she may be saying goodbye to her breast implants, but her boob job will live on in infamy for some time thanks to the former Sports Illustrated model's extensive modeling career, which included runway walking, multiple entries in SI and more. (She also is a TV personality and has written cookbooks.) So, as she noted, her breast implants have been good to her, but it's time she moved on.
My best wishes go out to Chrissy Teigen as she moves forward after making such a big decision. May the online haters take a breath and perhaps a rest from hating for a little while.
