You know when someone pronounces your name wrong or calls you by a different name & you just let it slide, but then it gets too far & you’re name is now Darlene, but it’s really Diana? Welcome to Chrissy Teigen’s life, except the entire world was pronouncing her name wrong. The cookbook author & mom of 2 took to Twitter yesterday to let us all know that she just can’t take it anymore! Her last name isn’t pronounced TEE-gen like we’ve been saying for years, but TIE-gen! She even gave us confirmation when she asked her mom if she was right, who quickly replied “Yup!” When asked on Twitter why she never corrected us, she replied “I don’t correct people, ever. They can call me Janet and I won’t. Wrong order? I’ll eat it. Taxi going to the wrong airport? I’ll change my flight.” Thanks for letting us know now. Some of us aren’t really into change, so this is a lot for us.
