'[KrisJenner's] brain is just incredible in the way that it works. And I still find myself wanting to impress her so much.' Chrissy Teigen on working with the most famous momager, Miles's sensitive soul, and supporting the AAPI community.

Teigen talks about working with the most famous momager, Miles's sensitive soul, and what we can all be doing to support the AAPI community.

and Good American, brought this idea about how to shake up the world of cleaning products. We wanted to give something new to people that have been stuck inside their homes and been so bored of what they're using that aren't necessarily products that they want around their children and animals.

Everything that Kris Jenner does always takes so much planning and years and years and years. I don't know how she keeps anything a secret because I've been so excited about this for so long to the point where I posted too many photos the first day. They're like,"We have to space these photos for the entire run of the project. What are you doing?"

John, I always say, is a neat freak. He's not a clean freak. I'm a clean freak. John will look like the disappearing man when it comes to leaving his clothes out, with the shoes and the jeans left around, perfectly positioned over each shoe. He looks like he completely dissolved or something. And I'm the one that always cleans up. And then Kris is insanely clean. Kris is probably a cleaner clean freak than any of us. headtopics.com

I can genuinely say that I have some of the cleanest kids around. They are to the point where I have to wrap their chicken tenders in a napkin, so they can have something to hold onto when they're eating their food. Kids reflect the behavior that they're around. So they see me being like that, and they're like that too. And I do love it.

[Miles] was obsessed with brooms and Swiffers. My Miles is a sensitive soul. We took the Swiffer away, and it was horrific. He would cry and cry. He would hold it when I read him bedtime stories. His crib looks like the claw game. He is just in there with about 100 other stuffed things, and he sleeps cross-legged with his head poking above the stuffed animals and the broom.

I do. I do because I thrive on that. I was the kind of person that would go over to a friend's house, and I would be like,"Hey, Mrs. Johnson, do you need help doing the dishes?" And then my friends would always get so mad at me because I would be such a kiss-ass. I was always the teacher's pet. Of course, your parents are like,"Why don't you do this at home?" I flourished when I was at a friend's house. So yeah, I'd be the favorite. For sure, without question.

SafelyWill you be a momager to Luna and Miles?You almost get to the point where you're like, who will take better care of my children than me. But I won't because I know that I would much rather surround her with someone smarter than her. Plus, I wouldn't want to mix those two worlds.

I honestly don't think that with the way Luna is going and her passions, she needs a manager of sorts. She is very creative and artistic, but I don't think it will translate to TV or film. I see Miles needing a manager, though. He loves to perform and dance. He's a lot like John. Luna is a lot like me. Luna loves to perform too, but Miles was much younger when it became a part of him. I can see it with Miles, for some reason. Maybe it's because he looks exactly like John.

God, no. Are you kidding? I'm her manager. I have to do everything for her. She doesn't return a single email. You tell her what time to wake up the night before, and when she wakes up, and she's there. But no, she doesn't write anything down. She doesn't have a calendar. She doesn't have anything. It's us all carrying the Pepper train. This train has no gas without us. Do trains have gas? I don't know. Or coal. The train has no coal.

As an Asian-American, I’ve always been so grateful for you and your platform and visibility.

Thank you, that makes me happy to hear that. I'm happy to represent positively for the Asian-American community because representation is so incredibly important. Seeing yourself in the public eye and hearing that your voice can be echoed through someone with any following is an essential thing.

It's a needed conversation. For so long this has been a seed planted in people's heads, the coronavirus being called the China virus. Politicians led that conversation, essentially putting a target on Asians' backs which is horrifying. [My mom] could be seen as somebody that people would have these nasty thoughts about, and it makes me sad and angry.

I think it's important for people to know that there are so many different ways to support our community. It's not just reaching out and doing performative bullshit through"just checking in on you" texts. It's making sure that those local Asian businesses are supported, whether it's a market or a restaurant, or making sure that their Chinatown can carry on throughout the year.
