"You know, I wasn't allowed to do this show for two years after the first time I did it 'cause I got so blackout drunk," she told Andy after the two watched a reel of the booziest moments of the show's 10-year history.
When Cohen asked who placed the ban, Chrissy shouted, "Marisa! My publicist."
He then smiled and said, "Oh, my God! Thank you, Marisa, for letting her do it now."
In 2017, after just having attended a wellness retreat in Bali with husband John Legend, Chrissy opened up about her struggles with alcohol. At the time, she was looking to hit the reset button on her health, especially because she was getting ready to "do something super hard, which is the IVF process, all over again." Their daughter, Luna, was 16 months.
"I was, point blank, just drinking too much," the 33-year-old cookbook extraordinaire told Cosmopolitan in August of that year. "I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show. And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected. And that feeling, there's just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It's not a good look for me, for John, for anybody."
Teigen, who's been a spokesperson for Captain Morgan and Smirnoff, said, "Imagine everything we have. Everything is there, always. I don't know how to go to an awards show and not drink."
The mother of two explained she had a history of alcohol abuse in her family and that she was the type of person who "can't just have one drink." At the time, she was taking a number of medications for postpartum depression and anxiety, noting, "Alcohol is like the least thing that helps." She began to worry about where she was headed.
"Nobody really brought it up to me," Chrissy said. "They just assumed that it was okay because I always felt okay the next morning. I knew in my heart it wasn't right. It makes you very short with people. People think it's cutesy and fun to go on these boozy brunches, but there's more to it. I've never once been like, 'I'm sure glad I had that boozy brunch!'"
While in Bali, Chrissy abstained from alcohol entirely and said the experience was "really, really wonderful. I would wake up feeling amazing. My skin felt amazing. I was just so happy."
"I used to think it was kind of nutty to have to go totally sober," she added. "But now I get it. I don't want to be that person... I have to fix myself."
In April 2013, Teigen publicly announced she'd be taking a month-long break from alcohol, tweeting, "I feel like if I say this publicly, the chances of me succeeding will rise. I am going sober. First for a month, then taking it from there."
I feel like if I say this publicly, the chances of me succeeding will rise. I, am going sober. First for a month, then taking it from there.
