Alison Roman is setting the record straight.
During an Instagram Live interview with comedian Ziwe Fumudoh, the food columnist addressed her controversial comments about Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo‘s lifestyle empires, which were later met with backlash from fans on social media.
At the time, Teigen admitted she was upset on Twitter and said she was set to executive produce a show Roman was working on. But, while discussing the incident with Fumudoh, Roman said that Teigen had “never” actually signed on.
“So she’s not and she never was,” Roman said. “And I don’t know how much I can say on that, but that is true and you can consult the right people with that. But that was a challenging comment because it wasn’t true. And it wasn’t the time or place for me to correct that because the issue wasn’t—like that felt really petty to be like, ‘Not true. Nuh-uh.'”
