Chrissy Teigen says bullying scandal made her a better person as she celebrates 100 days sober

Chrissy Teigen has reflected on her cyberbullying scandal earlier this year saying it made her "a better person".

The 35 year old star apologised following claims she sent nasty messages and trolled model Courtney Stodden in 2011 when the reality TV star was a teenager.

The model and mum-of-two, who is married to singer John Legend, also revealed that she has since given up alcohol and is celebrating being 100 days sober.

It comes after a heartbreaking few months following the death of the star's beloved dog Pippa.

Speaking to presenter Hoda Kotb on the Today Show in America, Chrissy gave an update on all the work she’s done to improve and become a better person for her children Luna and Miles.

The Cravings: All Together cookbook author said: "I’m actually a hundred days sober today and I’m so excited."

"I feel so good, I feel very clear-headed," the model continued.

"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."

Speaking about the bullying scandal and how she looks upon the awful time now, Chrissy said honestly: "Truly it made me a stronger person, a better person."

In May, the star addressed her "behaviour" with a Twitter post holding herself fully-accountable for her past actions.

“Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls**t in front of the entire world,” she began. “I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll."

The star added: "I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behaviour."

Chrissy also delved further into the controversy and reflected on her actions in an essay on her personal blog, with further apologies in June and statements declaring she needed to "do better".

"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," the blonde beauty told her followers. "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 truly it made me a stronger person, a better person," Chrissy affirmed.

Now the mum-of-two is celebrating more than three months of sobriety, and said it has made her feel better than ever before and given her a new perspective.

She first considered giving up drink when she received a book about sobriety for her birthday in November.
