In the midst of Chrissy Teigen’s parents’ divorce, we're learning some interesting facts about her mother’s finances. For instance, we recently found out that Vilailuck Teigen, who’s a very good cook, inked a hefty deal for a cookbook she’s currently working on.

Chrissy's parents will be officially divorced in May, according to reports. This isn't something she wallowed over because she long realized her parents were mere friends during their marriage.

CASHING IT IN

The Blast divulged this information along with details of the celebrity mom’s divorce from Chrissy’s father, Ron Teigen. They’ve reportedly settled amicably since splitting in 2017 after 34 years. And as part of this settlement, Vilailuck is expected to keep all her earnings in entertainment.

Among those listed in her personal earnings was the $100,000 she’ll be making for the cookbook as well as talent fees amounting to $25,000 for appearing in a promotion for Impossible Burger and a Hulu commercial. Add to that her earnings from guesting in her daughter’s show, “Chrissy’s Court” amounting to $60,000.

HER COOKING EXPERTISE

Details surrounding the cookbook were not further divulged but it’s an easy guess that Vilailuck, who goes by the nickname Pepper will feature her favorite Thai dishes. She admitted in the past that she fancied hot food and would often crave for peppers or anything spicy.

Vilailuck currently lives with Chrissy and her family with John Legend. Chrissy welcomes this because she delights in her mother’s cooking. The social media star told Us Weekly,

”One of the greatest things about it is she’s blessed us with Thai food on an all-day basis. Anything we want, she makes into this incredible creation, and no matter what we have in the fridge she makes it into something wonderful.”

Vilailuck also doesn’t mind that Chrissy wakes her in the middle of the night to whip up something for her. She recalled a time when the model woke her at 2 am and asked her to make noodles and she obliged.

She also delights in knowing Chrissy's children love her cooking too. “The kids like my famous fish with garlic and scalloped potatoes," she happily told Us Weekly. "And pad Thai! I can do that three times a week and it’s always eaten up for lunch!”

NOT MUCH ADO ABOUT THE DIVORCE

Chrissy's parents will be officially divorced in May, according to reports. This isn't something she wallowed over because she long realized her parents were mere friends during their marriage. She opened about it during an interview for Vanity Fair shortly after.

Chrissy is also happy that in spite of their separation her family remains close-knit. Her father lives ten minutes away from her home and would drop in regularly. 'It just works for them. It’s a good family life. We’re all very close, very tight-knit," she assures.

Chrissy's family is certainly a source of inspiration for those who see divorce as something negative. In the Teigens' case, it has only made them more comfortable with each other because the pressure of staying married is no longer on the table.

What we imagine are left on their table are the delicious dishes Chrissy's mother lovingly cooks. We're certain Vilailuck's new cookbook will be a hit once it hits the stores.
