In May, Roman slammed Teigen’s business in an interview with New Consumer, saying that the Cravings business model “horrifies” her. She made similar comments about organization guru Marie Kondo‘s business.

After receiving backlash for her comments, Roman publicly apologized to Teigen and Kondo via a letter shared to her social media. Not long after, Teigen called on the Times to reinstate the columnist, and Roman’s column resumed not long after.
