Chrissy Teigen is absolutely delightful, just a real and true gem.

One of the things that we love about her — and let’s be real, there’s a long, long list — is her honesty. Girl does not hold back about anything, and it’s always wonderful to see.

And earlier this week at a promotional event, Chrissy really let some home truths fly.

See, she’s doing a new makeup palette in collaboration with Becca Cosmetics, and at a launch party for the product on Thursday night, she told reporters that she’d had plastic surgery.

Extensive plastic surgery, even.

One of the things she claimed to have done, odd as it may seem, is liposuction on her armpits.

“I had an armpit sucked out, which was one of the best things,” she said. “It’s a big secret, but I don’t care.”

“It was nine years ago or so,” she continued. “And it added two inches to my arms. Now it’s back though, so now I gotta pay for [liposuction] again.”

She said that it was “so easy,” and that “It made me feel better in strapless dresses, and I felt more confident.”

“It was the dumbest, stupidest thing I’ve ever done. The dumbest, but I like it, whatever. I have no regrets, honestly.”

It sounds weird when you first think about it — liposuction in the armpit, that is — but it sort of makes sense, doesn’t it?

And if it makes her feel more confident, then more power to that armpit fat removal!

But the liposuction wasn’t the only cosmetic procedure Chrissy admitted to — she also said “Everything else is fake, but my cheeks are real.”

“Women are like, ‘those fake-ass cheeks,’ and I’m like, No! This is my real face!”

She even pointed at her nose, her lips and her forehead, saying “Fake, fake, fake.”

Those who heard her firsthand say that she was obviously joking about having plastic surgery on her face, and most reasonable people reading it would figure that out, too.

But goodness knows that the vast majority of internet users are not reasonable people.

After her quotes began circulating, several outlets and readers took her joke as fact, so much so that Chrissy had to hop on Twitter to set the record straight.

“Reminder to never ever joke, ever,” she wrote. 

However, she did clarify that “I did to the armpits, no regrets except it clearly came back.”

She adorably added “You think I’d have this ass if I’d done extensive work? Like who would ask for this ass.”

Oh, Chrissy. Never, ever change.
