Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are gearing up to throw a major Memorial Day bash -- and the 29-year-old super model is revealing why the duo is the ultimate party-throwing power couple!
“John and I -- we like to think of ourselves as the king and queen of BBQ hosting,” Chrissy told ET.
“This weekend of course, Memorial Day weekend, we’re going to have a big BBQ because we don’t get to see our friends that often,” she added before revealing that she and John would be cooking up half of the meal themselves while the other half will be catered.
“When you have that many people you just try to bring in as much help as you can get -- sometimes I take on too much. Last Thanksgiving I made 22 sides…. it took three days!” she exclaimed.
“So, now I’ve learned to bring someone in for things like ribs... I’m a ‘sides’ girl,” Chrissy added. “John will make his mac [and cheese] and fried chicken… I will do my potato salad and I have an artichoke dip that I love to do. There’s going to be a ton of food.”
“I’d say one of them is honestly to bring in some help and have some time with your friends,” she shared. “Start early and don’t do the ‘goodbye’ thing. if you ever been to one of my parties- I never say goodbye, I go - 'I have to go to the bathroom' and then I leave and don’t come back – it’s the sneak-away!”
But most importantly she says it’s important for her and John, 36, to make time for one another no matter how busy they are entertaining their lucky guests.
“I think paying attention to your significant other… John and I, we host these things, and we end up not really getting to speak to each other all night because were in all these different directions and I think it’s important if you’re a couple, to be a couple and host this together,” she said before adding, “and drink responsibly!”
