Kardashian West seems like a larger-than-life personality to many people, and Teigen admitted she initially thought so, too. However, Teigen shared that when they first met, she realized something extremely “normal” about Kardashian West.

“The night Chrissy and I first met, we bonded in the bathroom while she helped zip me up,” Kardashian West wrote on her app in 2016, according to E! News. “We became good friends pretty fast after that, LOL!”

In a video of Teigen and Kardashian West chatting together, Teigen said, “I remember this because I was so nervous to meet you. I don’t know. I’d been watching. I knew all about you. I felt kind of like a weirdo.”

She added, “”You made me feel so much better because we went to the bathroom and you had me zip you up. [I was like] ‘Oh my gosh! She has spanx on. She’s cool. She’s normal.’ Yeah I remember that pretty well for some reason.”

As many fans might know, Kardashian West is going through a high-profile divorce with West. She filed for divorce in February 2021 after seven years of marriage.

Speaking to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Teigen said, “Kim is doing OK. I know Kim gave her all for everything. It’s honestly a shame that it didn’t work out because I saw them being a forever relationship. I really did, but I know she tried her best.”

Teigen shared that she has “definitely been in touch” with the KKW Beauty mogul, but Legend and West have not been communicating as much.

“If anyone knows Kanye, it’s that he goes off the grid,” Teigen said. “It’s hard to ever contact Kanye.”
