Chrissy Teigen joined Meredith Vieira on her show to discuss punching the President and a much talked about Instagram post of the model's "stretchies," a.k.a. stretch marks. It seems that the support Teigen has gotten for the super "real" photo has lead her to vow never to use body-altering apps again. She tells Meredith:
