Chrissy Teigen Goes Off on Fox News’ Laura Ingraham Over Time 100 Rant, Calls Her a ‘White Supremacist’

Fox News host Laura Ingraham was clearly appalled that Chrissy Teigen was named one of Time magazine’s top 100 influential people. “Speaking of glamour, model and wife of John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, was also chosen as one of the 100 most influential,” Ingraham said on her program, making air quotes when she said the word “influential.” The Fox host went on to describe Teigen as “also known for her vicious attacks on President Trump.”

But Ingraham, who was not on Time’s list, seemed most infuriated that Teigen’s write-up included a reference to food and the word “fuck.”

“She was chosen, according to the profile, because quote, all her life Chrissy Teigen has liked to eat. She’s not shy about that or anything else really.”

Some of the most outspoken political grifters of the Trump era want to sell you books—if anyone is interested in buying.

The success of political commentary books like Fox News reporter-turned-Trump-booster Greg Jarrett’s The Russia Hoax and tell-alls like Omarosa’s Unhinged have inspired B-list political media celebrities to take time out of their tweetstorms and attention-starved antics to pen the next great American rant.

Multiple sources confirmed to The Daily Beast that far-right political activist Laura Loomer, for example, has been trying to shop a book, and has told associates that there may be interest from major publishers.

SNL’s Laura Ingraham Goes After Nancy Pelosi and Mark Zuckerberg


Two weeks ago, Saturday Night Live kicked things off with a sketch featuring Kate McKinnon’s Laura Ingraham losing her mind over the migrant caravan inching its way toward the U.S.-Mexico border—and included a dig at its own Donald Trump, aka Alec Baldwin, over his recent parking-lot-brawl arrest.

On tonight’s SNL, McKinnon’s unhinged Fox News host welcomed her equally wacky colleague, Judge Jeanine Pirro, onto the program to rant about imaginary instances of “voter fraud,” before thanking her “few remaining sponsors,” including FASHIONCatheters and Reverend Whitaker’s Home Dog Baptism Kit—a nod to all the sponsors that left her show after she mocked a teenage school-shooting survivor.

After Judge Jeanine, Ingraham welcomed a guest who’s been under “intense scrutiny for letting Russians use his website to spread lies”—none other than Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

This Is Us’ Laura Niemi on Her Return as Jack’s Mom: ‘I Knew Her Journey Was Going to Be Tough’

Laura Niemi is opening up about her big return to This Is Us.

Niemi, who plays Jack Pearson’s (Milo Ventimiglia) mother, Marilyn, says her character’s journey as a working class woman who finds herself in an abusive relationship was difficult to play on an emotional level — but was familiar on a personal level.

“I tapped into some personal experience,” Niemi exclusively tells PEOPLE of how she prepared for the role. “I was in a relationship that was pretty toxic and just wanting to be able to get out and not having a voice. I was just in a dark place — I think a place a lot of woman have been in. I could relate to wearing those shoes when it came to Marilyn’s marriage to Stanley. Also the subject of alcoholism was relatable. I’ve seen what it does and the hostages are taken under that disease. I knew her journey was going to be a tough one.”

As far as Tuesday’s episode goes, Niemi says her “journey of now having two boys” will come into play, and viewers will soon see how the Pearson family dynamic impacts Jack’s life.

“This is a big episode for Jack,” she says. “There’s a lot of reveal on our family history. I think it’s going to be a pretty wonderful episode to be able to see how he became who he is. I think it starts with our parents.”

In the season 3 premiere last month, viewers were transported back to the ’70s and found out more about Jack and Rebecca’s first date.

“I always said I was born in the wrong era,” Niemi says about her character’s time travel. “My best friend growing up was my grandmother. This is her generation. I spent New Year’s Eve with my grandparents. I just feel like I’ve always had an older soul and that period of time was such an incredible time. It was wonderful to dive into that period of history.”

And working alongside Ventimiglia has been far from dull.

“I’m on a show that everyone watches ,so people are constantly texting me, ‘What was it like?’ It was fun being able to feel the enthusiasm in my personal life as well,” she says. “Milo is my boy. He’s such a lovely and wonderful man. He makes my job so easy. He’s such a lovable guy and sets the bar so high with this character.”

As for what’s to come this season, the cast previously told PEOPLE that things will begin to fall together come midseason — with the obvious curveballs.

“Episode four is a doozy. We’re going to see a side of Kate we haven’t seen so far. Kate hasn’t felt her feelings deeply and a lot of them are bubbling to the surface. As humans, we don’t always know how to handle them or express them. Sometimes anger is sometimes just sadness masked,” said Chrissy Metz, alluding to Kate’s miscarriage last season as well as Toby’s battle with depression.

This Is Us airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on NBC.
