UPDATE 5/20/20 at 7:00 A.M.: In a thread on Twitter, Chrissy Teigen responded to the news that Alison Roman's New York Times column was on leave, saying she was not happy about it. Replying to a fan saying they loved Roman's shallot pasta, Teigen agreed, writing that "it is a very good recipe!!" Another person then asked, "Has the beef been squashed? That’s nice," referring to last week's feud and Teigen responded, "I hope we can laugh about it one day but I’m not happy with the NYT leave so she def can’t laugh about it yet. It just sucks in every way."


Fans of Alison Roman's bi-weekly recipes for the New York Times will have to plan their menus accordingly — The Daily Beast reports that her column is "on temporary leave" after the chef's scuffle with Chrissy Teigen on Twitter.

A spokesperson for the Times confirmed Roman's hiatus. Earlier this month, Roman made headlines after she criticized Teigen and organizing expert Marie Kondo. Times insiders also noted that Roman had a column ready to print last week, but the paper decided not to publish it, choosing instead to put her regular contributions on hold.

"She had a successful cookbook," Roman said of Teigen's success. "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. But like, who’s laughing now? Because she’s making a ton of fucking money."
