Alison Roman says Chrissy Teigen was never set to produce her new show

Desus and Mero writer Ziwe Fumudoh has been interviewing folks on Instagram Live, and one of her latest guests happens to be none other than anti-racism expert Alison Roman! During the interview Roman mentioned that Teigen was never signed on to executive produce her show (?!).

"It wasn't the time or place for me to correct that because the issue wasn't—like that felt really petty to be like, ‘Not true. Nuh-uh,'" Roman said.

Ziwe also asks Alison how many black friends she has.


Here are some other highlights:

-Ziwe and Alison played a game where they identified civil rights leaders.

-Alison Roman says there were no black people when she worked at bon Appetit (even though New Yorker writer Doreen St. Felix replied that she worked WITH Alison when she interned there). Alison said she contributed to a toxic culture at BA by doing and saying nothing.

-Alison tries to name 5 Asian people and it's a struggle.

ONTD, what a bizarre lie on Chrissy's part if true. Why do you think she would lie?
