The New York Times has decided to suspend Alison Roman's column, shortly after her drama with Chrissy Teigen – and the former model turned cookbook author is "not happy" about it.

In case you missed it, Alison did an interview with The New Consumer in which she criticised Chrissy's business model. Of Chrissy having "people running a content farm for her", she said: "That horrifies me and it's not something that I ever want to do. I don't aspire to that."

Chrissy went on to say she was really "bummed out" by what Alison said, mainly because it was not true and she puts her heart and soul into what she does. After Twitter got involved, Chrissy put her account on private, and much back and forth, Alison wrote an apology letter and Chrissy accepted. All's well that ends well, right? Well, not quite.

A spokesperson for The New York Times confirmed to E! News on Wednesday that, for an unspecified reason, Alison's column has been put on "temporary leave".

Of course, fans flocked to Twitter, assuming it must have something to do with their very public twar, so Chrissy responded to defend herself and share her thoughts on the latest drama.

"I don't agree with what the NYT has done, I am not them," she said. "I didn't call them, I didn't write, and most of all, I'd like her back."

In another tweet, she added: "I hope we can laugh about it one day but I'm not happy with the NYT leave so she def can't laugh about it yet. It just sucks in every way."
