Chrissy Teigen: Why I Love Yolanda Foster
The model gushes about her obsession with the Real Housewives.
When Chrissy Teigen isn't busy looking beautiful in front of the cameras, the model makes some time for TV. And the SoCal babe's go-to programming is none other than our Real Housewives franchise. In fact, she's opening up about her obsession with each region.
"I grew up in Orange County, so my heart is in Orange County," she tells Women's Wear Daily. "I feel like Jersey is very dark. I don't know if I like that. Orange County and Atlanta are my favorites. Beverly Hills I love, too. They are f---ing rich and unrelatable. With Orange County, I’m like, 'I’ve been to that restaurant.' Beverly Hills, they just have a huge party at Yolanda [Foster's] house."
Chrissy also shares that Yolanda has had a huge impact on her. "Yolanda is like my biggest inspiration in life," she says. "The love that Yolanda and David [Foster] have… I would love to see myself as Yolanda. Just throwing parties and being like, 'Guys, let's just paint today'."
That love also extends to Yolanda's model daughter, Gigi, who is this year's It Girl in the fashion industry.
"I love Gigi. She is my baby. She’s brilliant. Not only is she the sweetest person, but she’s so smart, she’s so down to earth, she goes to school, she is in Tom Ford ads," Chrissy says. "She is what I wish every young model would be. I wish there was a Gigi in my time, when I was modeling."
Chrissy shares that the Real Housewives have served as a big inspiration for her forthcoming cookbook.
"I’m not going to make a traditional cookbook, with a recipe and a picture," she says. "I have to share a ridiculous, f---ing story. I have to show my weird Instagram. I have to show my failure and my success. I want it to be really relatable. I want girls to be excited to make a meal for their girlfriends, for their man, whatever. I want people to have fun cooking, That’s it. My biggest goal is to have people who say, 'I can’t cook,' understand that they can cook — they just won’t. It’s all about your own taste and adding your own flair. I want people to stay in and cook on a Friday night and not have f---ing FOMO. Just stay home, watch '[The Real] Housewives, and be happy."
