Alison Roman’s NY Times food column ‘on temporary leave’ after cookbook author threw shade at Chrissy Teigen
She sparked a storm earlier this month when she threw shade at Chrissy Teigen over the Cravings cookbook author’s success.
And now, according to The Daily Beast, Alison Roman’s regular food column in the New York Times has been suspended.
Roman, the author of cookbooks Nothing Fancy and Dining In, has a biweekly recipe column in the newspaper but a spokesperson for the Times told The Daily Beast Tuesday the column is now ‘on temporary leave’.
Hiatus: Alison Roman’s biweekly New York Times column has been temporarily suspended following her controversial remarks throwing shade at Chrissy Teigen
The spokesperson for the Times did not elaborate further, The Daily Beast said.
Roman, who also has an incredibly popular Instagram on which she shares her recipe ideas, has been in the spotlight for different reasons since giving a controversial interview to the New York Consumer.
In remarks published on May 8, she described Teigen’s climb to the top of the food empire as ‘crazy.’
‘She had a successful cookbook. And then it was like: Boom, line at Target. Boom, now she has an Instagram page that has over a million followers where it’s just, like, people running a content farm for her,’ Roman said.
‘That horrifies me and it’s not something that I ever want to do. I don’t aspire to that.’
Shade: In an interview published May 8, Roman, the author of cookbooks Nothing Fancy and Dining In, called Teigen’s ascent to the top of the food empire ‘crazy’
Popular: The model and TV personality published Cravings: Recipes For All The Food You Want To Eat in 2016 followed by the equally successful Cravings: Hungry For More in 2018
Upset: Teigen responded to Roman’s remarks by saying she was hurt that the recipe columnist, whom she admired, would consider her a ‘sell out’ and diminish her achievements
Teigen, a successful model and TV personality who is married to singer John Legend, immediately expressed hurt at Roman’s comments in a series of Tweets.
‘I bought [Roman’s] cookbooks, supported her on social and praised her in interviews. I even signed on to executive produce the very show she talks about doing in this article,’ she shared.
‘I genuinely loved everything about Alison. Was jealous she got to have a book with food on the cover instead of a face!! I’ve made countless NYT recipes she’s created, posting along the way,’ she went on.
Teigen concluded: ‘I didn’t ‘sell out’ by making my dreams come true. To have a cookware line, to get to be a part of that process start to finish, to see something go from sketch to in my hands, I love that.’
Teigen co-wrote her successful cookbook Cravings: Recipes For All The Food You Want To Eat with author Adeena Sussman back in 2016.
In 2018 she wrote a follow up cookbook titled Cravings: Hungry For More, which was met with instant success.
Sorry: Roman has since publicly apologized twice to Teigen and also to Marie Kondo, whom she’d criticized in the same article. ;Both deserve better than my tone deaf remarks,’ she said
Roman has since publicly apologized twice to Teigen and also to Marie Kondo, whom she’d also criticized in the same article.
In a tweet, she wrote: ‘I shouldn’t have used you /your business (or Marie’s!) as an example to show what I wanted for my own career- it was flippant, careless and I’m so sorry.
She followed up with a more lengthy post a couple of days later in which she again expressed remorse, saying: ‘I need to learn, and respect, the difference between being unfiltered and honest vs. being uneducated and flippant.’
‘The burden is not on them (or anyone else) to teach me, and I’m deeply sorry that my learning came at Chrissy and Marie’s expense. They’ve worked extremely hard to get where they are, and both deserve better than my tone deaf remarks.’
