Chrissy Teigen opened up about her ups and downs in what she described as a ‘rollercoaster’ of an Instagram post on Sunday, as she shared memories of her time in New York City, where she relaxed with her family over the weekend.

In a photo with the post, Teigen, 35, and husband John Legend, 42, smiled at they sat in a booth at the New York City restaurant Frank, with Teigen in a white top while Legend wore a short-sleeved patterned button-up top.

Teigen recalled how she and Legend have been patrons of the restaurants for ‘maybe 13, 14 years now’ as they ‘used to live just a couple blocks away’ in the Big Apple.

She recalled how Legend ‘had a basement apartment with a roommate,’ and she ‘used to sneak cigarettes (ew) through the little half window that lined up with the sidewalk’ which was ‘basically a window where you could only see people’s shoes.’

She said she would either take her late dog Puddy ‘to sit outside … or sometimes sit at the kitchen bar alone, reading Glamour and trying everything on the menu.’

Teigen recalled, ‘I’d sit there with my multiple double vodka sodas and get day drunk by myself (this is not a brag lol I was basically a functioning alcoholic) then buy hats I didn’t like or need.’

Teigen said she had been ‘just reminiscing about New York a lot lately, when things were simple, thinking about all the stuff I’ve done and been through not just this year but in my life.’

The star said she was ‘slightly down lately,’ as she was working on her latest cookbook (titled Cravings: All Together: Recipes To Love) in thinking of her late son Jack, after her pregnancy loss last September when she was 20 months into her term.

‘It kind of started when I was thinking of my book caption and typed out “my third baby is here!!”, as in cookbook, then realized my third baby will never be here,’ she wrote. ‘Then I realized I threw myself into the book to not think of the real, actual third baby.

‘I don’t really feel like I fully processed jack and now that I don’t have the alcohol to numb it away, things are just…there, waiting to be acknowledged. I guess what I’m saying here is life is so f***ing complicated.’ 

Teigen this year has dealt with a scandal for past toxic social media behavior, which led Macy’s to cease selling her kitchen line and her exit from the Netflix show Never Have I Ever. The model/cookbook author has said she could be ‘canceled forever’ professionally amid the career crisis.
