Chrissy Teigen goofed but, you know, it didn't go totally awry. The Lip Sync Battle co-host accidentally posted her email address Tuesday on Twitter—making it available to her 11.7 million followers—and readied herself for the wave of FaceTime calls. And they came, Us Weekly reports. "Oh my god people are FaceTiming me, was 100% sure this would be a penis but nope just a nice stranger," she tweeted with a video of her and mom Vilailuck talking to a stranger. That stranger, Ricardo, asked how they were doing. "We're good, we're about to eat dinner, but just thought we'd answer one of these," Chrissy said.

But the calls kept coming and she posted three clips of herself looking exasperated. "Please stop I have a family," she tweeted. She also admitted it wasn't her first such blunder: "Not as bad as when I published my phone number on my dog's collar in my cookbook," she posted. How did this one happen? Seems the 33-year-old tweeted a pic of her MacBook with her personal email showing; now she has a new address, of course. But Mashable finds the bright side: "At least she made the day of that random guy who got to FaceTime with Teigen and her mom on a casual Tuesday." (In other celebrity news, Kevin Hart was sued over a sex tape.)
