Chrissy Teigen may be constantly saying that she has no idea what she’s doing on this sober journey of hers, or even if she’ll stay sober down the road, but she’s clearly still committed to it and even marking milestones.
Taking to her Instagram page on Wednesday, the cookbook author celebrated her latest achievement with a series of stunning balcony photographs in honor of six straight months of sobriety.
Teigen had originally recommitted to her sobriety — she tried once in 2017 but ultimately slipped back into drinking — in December 2020 after she received the book “Quit Like a Woman” by Holly Whitaker for her 35th birthday.
The reason she’s not celebrating being a year or more sober, though, is because she’s admitted to a few “wine hiccups” over those first several months. That also indicates how seriously she’s taking this, honoring now her true sober streak of six months.
“6 months no alcohol!” she touted in her caption alongside seven — couldn’t trim it down to six for symmetry? — photos. “Honestly kind of sucks saying it because even though I don’t ever crave it now, time has not exactly flown by haha.”
“I prob won’t be excited til a larger milestone like at leasssst 5 years, and sometimes I don’t even know if I necessarily won’t ever drink again?” reiterating a sentiment she expressed at 50 days, as well.
“I have no idea what I’m doing honestly, but I do know a few things: I now have endless energy, way less anxiety (no more benzos!) and I am *happier* and more present than ever,” she continued. “It’s pretty cool. I look forward to having my full body reset after 1 year, then reevaluating to see my new hopes and wishes for the future! Let’s goooo.”
Teigen also celebrated 100 days of sobriety, a mark that came in October 2021 as she was being raked over the coals for past bullying behavior. Rather than allow that to be a trigger, the incident appears to have helped her remain committed.
“I feel like I’ve done the work, and I hope these people can forgive and be able to welcome the fact that hopefully they’ve seen me be better,” Teigen wrote in honor of that milestone in her life.
“So proud of you my love,” Teigen’s husband John Legend commented on her post, while she got love from some of her other famous friends as well.
Rachel Zoe shared a series of clapping emojis, while Katy Perry commented, “Beautiful ❤️,” and Brooklyn Decker told her she was “tough as nails, my friend ❤️.”
Octavia Spencer wrote a beautifully supportive comment. “6 months is something to celebrate,” she noted. “You hit a rough spot in the road and changed your tires. Now you’re enjoying the ride. That’s something to celebrate. ❤️”
Already sure to be a wild ride, Hulu’s “Pam & Tommy” is going to be even more out there than the tabloid fodder that was the tumultuous relationship between Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee.
And yet, hardcore fans of the duo — and the Motley Crüe drummer in particular — shouldn’t be too surprised to hear that there is a scene in the upcoming series that features Sebastian Stan’s Tommy talking to his own penis. It’s ripped from Tommy’s 2004 autobiography, “Tommyland.”
Fans won’t have to wait long for the bizarre sequence, either, as it hits in the second episode, taking place early in the relationship with Tommy wondering if maybe he’s actually falling in love with this girl — and consulting with his member about it … as you do.
This isn’t just a passive conversation, either, as not only did producers cast Jason Mantzoukas as the voice, they actually built a fully animatronic penis to really bring the scene to life.
It turns out it wasn’t just awkward conceptually, with director Craig Gillespie breaking down what it took to fully animate Tommy’s little friend. “You’ve got four puppeteers working with an animatronic penis,” he told Variety. “And then, how much is too much, and do you start to lose his emotional torment of what’s going on? Hopefully it works.”
Stan struggled a bit with the scene, too. We’d imagine trying to stay in character and focused was even more challenging than all that green-screen work he’s done as the Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At least there, he wasn’t staring at a talking penis.
Ultimately, though, he was able to disconnect from what his scene partner was and just focus on the meaning of the moment. “By the end of it, I treated it like it was an intimate buddy conversation that one might have when they’re falling in love,” he explained.
Screenwriter Robert Siegel admitted that the scene was definitely pushing what Hulu was comfortable with “I think it might be a first [for television],” he added. “There was gentle pushback, because you’ve got to push back a little when a talking penis is presented to you. But Hulu was extremely supportive.”
The series will also get into the nitty gritty of the four days from when they met to when they got married and that infamous honeymoon video that would go on to break the nascent internet over and over again.
Stan’s co-star Lily James said that they were very cautious and careful about approaching that material, focusing on what’s “necessary” to progress the story, and what moments are absolutely crucial to the character and where it’s all going.
“Then you work with the director and how you’re going to block it and the intimacy coach,” she went on. “I felt very supported in all those aspects. It was very collaborative; we really spoke through each choice of what we wanted to show.”
“It’s very choreographed, which is really important too,” she continued. “Certainly, with ‘Pam & Tommy,’ and those crazy four days, we wanted to revel in that passion and explosion of their relationship. But we also didn’t want it to feel sensational or unnecessary.”
The series will then explore the aftermath of the tape getting leaked, and the differing public reactions received by the real Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. Let’s just say that, as expected, the woman takes the brunt of the heat.
It’s hard to envision the tone of the whole project as it’s determined to offer a more nuanced exploration of the horrific media scrutiny the tape created alongside a deeper and more humane depiction of the very real people trapped in the middle of the storm — and a talking penis.
“Pam & Tommy” debuts with its first three episodes dropping Wednesday, February 2 on Hulu. Subsequent episodes will debut one per week.
Sia came under fire for casting Maddie Ziegler in the film as an autistic teen, its depiction of autism and her explanations for why she did not ultimately hire a neuroatypical actress.
