In particular, she says she wants people to stop with the common refrain of "How do you deal with your wife?" Because Chrissy is Chrissy, she took to Twitter to vent—and I can't say I disagree with her. "I feel like a very common question when interviewing john is basically 'how do you deal with your wife' and ... I don’t love it," she wrote. "It happens a lot. 'does she ask you if certain things are okay to say? ...it’s just very weird to me."
Not only is the inference behind the question (whether intended or not) low-key sexist, it's also a pretty matter of fact case of "asked and answered."
"He usually does the standard 'no...she knows what she’s doing...' but it’s not even that," she says. "It’s just that I am a different human than him? It is theeeee most common question with him. Please stop."
Check out a couple of recent examples of exactly what Teigen is talking about.
Ellen Degeneres asked Legend, "Does she run these [tweets] by you?" during his recent appearance on her show, where Teigen is also a regular and has even co-hosted.
Most recently, Legend has been on the publicity circuit promoting his new role as a judge on The Voice. Just yesterday on the Today show, Carson Daly said to Legend, "John, do you ever go on Twitter or Instagram and see something that she's written and you're just like, 'Aw, man, I don't need..' I mean, there was a time when anonymity used to be a thing you'd like..."
In case anyone is worried about getting flamed by Teigen on social media, that's not likely to happen. "I’m not mad at anyone who has asked this. I get that we are very different," she says. "It happens a lot though and I’m just not very into it. You don’t ask me how I deal with watching msnbc every night or what I do while he’s silent for a week."
Teigen just wants to see some more creative questions that don't involve whether or not she has permission from her husband to speak her mind. And I think we can all agree that that would be a good thing.
