Jokes towards your significant other are like drunken words. There is always just a little bit of truth to them; at least I know that’s true for me! I know it’s terrible, but sometimes a comical jab here and there is the best way to cover up the insecurities you don’t want to plaster all over your face because you have too much pride. That’s how I feel about Chrissy Teigen’s latest comments, no matter how many times she tweets she was just kidding.
If you’re wondering what exactly it was that Teigen was joking about, it’s hot nannies. She told reporters at the New York Fashion Week event that whenever she and musical hubby John Legend have children, she’ll be cautious about hiring attractive nannies.
Teigen said, “It’s an ongoing joke in my house. I do want to have kids one day, so it’s something that I have to think about. But the rule is no hot nannies.” She added that no hot drivers or maids are allowed in the close vicinity of her husband either. Now as a joke that’s all fine and good. I don’t even like other women looking at my man through the sides of their eyes so I understand, but had Teigen left the joke there I may have believed her.
However, Teigen continued, “I trust John, but you never know with these men…These days it doesn’t really matter what you look like, sometimes cabin fever just strikes and men do the do.”
Maybe it’s just me, but how long have Teigen and Legend been together now? They dated for four years before getting engaged, the engagement lasted two years , and they have been married for three years. After almost a decade together, she’s worried about John Legend stepping out on her? If it was a joke, it was poorly structured and ended up sounding like a jealous girlfriend after she’s seen her boyfriend’s female best friend.
Even if it is in her nature to be a jokester, I still don’t think it was appropriate to make those kinds of comments about her husband. And it’s not just me. Teigen has received some backlash for her comment, to which she fired back on Twitter with the following tweets.
“Just like low carb diet of licking chips, my “no hot nannies” comment was a joke, clearly lost upon many. What is life, why must I type this.”
“I don’t just go into random rants about hot nannies. The Post asked, I jokingly answered. It isn’t that f*cking deep.”
Sounds a little defensive, eh? Personally, I wonder how John Legend felt about the comments, but he seems like his love for her is unwavering and they do make an adorable couple. One just has to wonder.
