The model revealed during an appearance on The Today Show on Tuesday, October 26, that she has been sober for 100 days straight.

The conversation about her sobriety came up as the cookbook author, 35, was reflecting on how she has changed since coming under fire for cyberbullying earlier this year.

The Lip Sync Battle host claimed that she has been trying to make up for her nasty tweets by working on herself and taking the time to make changes in her life: “I feel like I’ve done the work and I just hope these people can forgive and be able to welcome the fact that hopefully they’ve seen me be better.”

Courtney Stodden recalled the Cravings author telling them to take a “dirt nap” and suggesting they kill themself in private messages back in 2011.

She also caught backlash for similar tweets directed at Lindsay Lohan, who Teigen joked about having slits on her wrists after the actress previously admitted to self harming in the past.

As the bullying scandal escalated, Teigen — who is married to singer John Legend — eventually posted an apology to her socials in June, where she took accountability for her previous cruel words.

She claimed at the time that the experience was “humbling,” and that she had “been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate ‘sit here and think about what you’ve done.’”

Teigen told Kotb on Tuesday that the experience helped make her a better person, despite being a celebrity internet “troll” for years.

“I think you learn so much in the moments where you do lose so much, you lose it all, your world is kind of turned upside down,” she said. “For me it was a big moment of, ‘Wow, I need to find out how I can be better, how I can grow from this, learn from this.’”

“There’s that old cliché like I’m glad it happened, but it truly made me a stronger, better person,” she added.

Teigen insisted that she has tried to apologize to all those who she offended, and that she wants to be a better role model for her two children, Luna, 5, and Miles, 3.
