Alison Roman Enters a New Chapter Following The Drama With Chrissy Teigen

Food columnist Alison Roman is moving on from her post at the New York Times following recent drama about Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo.

“This was a huge shake-up for me both personally and professionally, and I’m still processing so much, but know that I’m working on it and thinking about it 24/7,” she wrote on Instagram. “The issues brought to light by this whole thing won’t be fixed overnight, and the healing process for many will be long, but I’m committed to doing the work to make it better.”

“For the foreseeable future, you can find me in that newsletter I started 3 years ago and never sent out lol. There will be recipes, reader emails, recommendations, and discussions about things that I hope you will like or find helpful,” she announced, adding, “In lieu of the comments section or DMs, I encourage you to submit questions/comments/concerns to [email protected], the idea being to share some of them in the newsletter (I am learning ‘the comments section’ is not the best place for public discourse).”

As we previously reported, last week Alison’s column was put on temporary hold after she criticized Chrissy and Maria Kondo’s business trajecotries.

“What Chrissy Teigen has done is so crazy to me,” she told the New Consumer. “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. That horrifies me and it’s not something that I ever want to do. I don’t aspire to that.”

As far as Marie, Alison said, “The idea that when Marie Kondo decided to capitalize on her fame and make stuff that you can buy, that is completely antithetical to everything she’s ever taught you.”

Ouch… well, whatever happens we’re sure Alison is going to land on her feet.
