Chrissy Teigen Blames Utah For Her Extremely Swollen Mouth

August 19, 2019 / Posted by:

Chrissy Teigen went back to her home state of Utah for a wedding this weekend. But Chrissy got all messed up before she even hit the open bar, and it’s all Utah’s fault. The entire state! Utah, you better call your lawyers.

I visited Utah once, and here’s what I learned about Utah: there’s a lot of Mormons, the capital is Salt Lake City, and it’s called the Beehive State. The last two points are important, because Chrissy’s face looks like a metaphor for both. You could say her mouth looks like it was attacked by a state’s worth of angry bees, or that it looks like her mouth has sodium bloat. On Saturday, Chrissy explained that no, her dermatologist didn’t “accidentally” fall needle-first onto her mouth with 50 CC’s of high-density filler. According to Chrissy, altitude sickness is to blame.

Specifically, her lips swelled up because of something called angioedema. Angioedema is a swelling of the lower layer of skin and tissue just under the skin or mucous membranes. It can happen anywhere, but Chrissy experienced it in her lips.

According to USA Today, the most common way to treat angioedema is with antihistamines. Chrissy obviously decided the best course of action was to get some social media mileage out of her massive lip before popping some Benadryl, because here’s her lip in motion.

Chrissy tagged the bride and groom, which is kind, because having your Instagram handles shouted out to an audience of millions is truly the most generous wedding present one can receive. Chrissy’s husband John Legend Instagrammed a picture of the two of them at said wedding. And it’s not known if he took this picture before Chrissy’s lip went full hot air balloon or after.

I once went to a wedding in Colorado that was more than 10,000 feet above elevation in the mountains, and thankfully the only altitude sickness I got was the good old one-drink-will-fuck-you-ups. But Chrissy’s lip looks sore. That looks like the kind of pain you wouldn’t wish on anyone. Well, maybe not anyone. The Kardashians probably called up their friend Chrissy and begged her to curse them with such a condition.
