'I remember living in Miami in this apartment with five other young models, and it was two bedroom and we were each paying like $4,000 a piece,' she said. 'Looking back it doesn’t make any sense, but for me it was so cool that an agency wanted to move me to Miami.'
The mother-of-one who is pregnant with her second child with husband John Legend said her new lifestyle at the time 'felt glamorous, and it felt cool.'
'I didn’t realize how many people pull fast ones on you and I would have definitely gotten a business manager a lot earlier as a young person,' she revealed.

Show your soft side in a velvet dress by Rhea Costa
The 2017 GQ Men Of The Year Party wasn't just all about the boys.
Emily Ratajkowski ruffled a few feathers in an outfit by Prada, Gal Gadot looked ladylike in red Dior and Chrissy Teigen showed off her blossoming baby bump in a blush pink velvet gown, which is by Rhea Costa.
We love the wrap over shape of this dress, which Chrissy wore off the shoulder and teamed with a Tyler Ellis clutch. And if you think the front is beautiful, you should see the back - it features a crystal embellished mesh panel which is just dreamy!
Click (right) to buy it in several different colours. Fans of the brand include Gigi Hadid, Vanessa Hudgens and Ciara, who has in fact worn the black version of this dress so you'll be in good company!

'When I started out in the modeling world I was bouncing around from agency to agency. I thought it was cool that agents wanted me and that I could get work,' Teigen shared.
Her eagerness to be in the industry at any cost may have backfired at times.
'I think when you’re young and excited to begin that world you don’t really think that anyone has any negative intentions,' Chrissy said. 'You just get so excited, you’ll do anything. You’ll do all the favors.'

The cookbook author did offer a few words to live by at the end of the chat, nothing that it's important to 'be humble.'
'The world is really small,' she shared. 'Word travels so fast with how you treat people. How speak to people. Little things go a really long way.'
Chrissy celebrated her four-year wedding anniversary to John Legend in September and recently announced she's pregnant with the couple's second child.
