Naughty or Nice? Chrissy Teigen’s Christmas Morning PJs Are, Well, Nonexistent

Tinsel, beanies, trees and knits: The Gap Factory holiday ads have officially gotten us in the mood for the holidays. And Chrissy Teigen (who stars in the upcoming ads with Victor Cruz, Chanel Iman, Noah Mills and longtime Gap Factory face George Kotsiopolous) is sharing a behind-the-scenes look at the sweet (and often silly) shoot, as well as sharing her thoughts on all things gift-y this season.

“I have actually never bought anything from Gap Factory,” Teigen shares with a laugh, “and thank God that now I’m an ambassador of Gap Factory, I don’t have to!” She’s equally candid about the worst gift she ever got (“Who would ever judge gifts? Aside from me!” she jokes, before spilling all in the video below) and the styles she’s going to borrow from set — all of which she shared on a break from the David LaChapelle-helmed photoshoot.

Teigen also confesses that she doesn’t often do much straight modeling anymore, but she couldn’t resist the chance to come out of her semi-retirement to work with the whole team. “I don’t wanna brag, but I don’t really do a ton of modeling these days, but when I hear something with such a wonderful group — Victor Cruz, Chanel Iman, David LaChapelle — how do you turn that down? It’s impossible, there’s no way,” she says. “I would’ve never met these people otherwise … I could work with any group of people, but I want to have a fun workday, I want to work for a company that I’m proud of, and clothes that I love, and it just happened to be the perfect storm of all these things.”

“My personal favorite wardrobe staple would definitely be my flat black boots,” Teigen says, “I have four dogs, I have to walk them all the time, they’re something I can throw on with any outfit and make it easy.” Watch the video below for some signature Teigen answers — including why she loves the black jumpsuit better than anything else she tried on — and know that she couldn’t even begin to start her holiday wish list, because husband John Legend spoils her so much that she doesn’t want for anything. And perhaps the best tidbit of all? Teigen’s Christmas morning outfit: “I’m naked,” she says. “I’m an adult now, so when I wake up for Christmas morning, I’m naked! Not a onesie, that’s for sure.”

Michael Sam Cut from Dallas Cowboys Practice Squad

10/21/2014 AT 10:10 PM EDT

Michael Sam will have to wait for a third team to give the NFL’s first openly gay player a chance to appear in a regular-season game.

The Dallas Cowboys released Sam from the practice squad Tuesday, dropping the rush end as they prepare for several potential reinforcements to return to the defensive line.

Sam spent seven weeks with the Cowboys after joining their practice squad Sept. 3, four days after he was among the final cuts by the St. Louis Rams at the end of the preseason. He was never placed on the 53-man active roster.

The Rams drafted the former SEC defensive player of the year from Missouri late in the seventh round in May. He was pick No. 249 out of 256. Sam had three sacks in the preseason with St. Louis playing mostly against second- and third-stringers.

Sam thanked the family of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Twitter, along with “friends, family, teammates, and fans for their support.”

“While this is disappointing, I will take the lessons I learned here in Dallas and continue to fight for an opportunity to prove that I can play every Sunday,” Sam wrote.

The signing of Sam by the Cowboys brought an overflow crowd to coach Jason Garrett’s daily news conference, and he was surrounded by about two dozen reporters in the only interview he conducted on the same day.

But he mostly blended in after that, making occasional appearances in the locker room when it was open to the media and earning praise from Garrett and defensive coordinator and defensive line coach Rod Marinelli the few times they were asked about him.

“Comes to work every day and practices hard,” Garrett said last week. “One of 10 practice roster guys that we have, so he’s working on his skills, trying to develop, but also doing a lot of other things. Playing offense, defense, playing the kicking game. That’s what a lot of those guys do.”

Sam came out to his Missouri teammates before his senior season. He told the rest of the world three months before the May draft. After Sunday’s 31-21 win over the New York Giants, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told USA Today that Sam’s sexuality was “a dead issue.”

While releasing Sam, the Cowboys added linebacker Troy Davis of Central Florida and defensive tackle Ken Bishop of Northern Illinois to their practice squad.

Kesha Accused of Previously Denying Abuse by Dr. Luke

The ongoing legal battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke continues to take new and surprising twists and turns.

Just one week after The “Timber” singer filed documents accusing her producer of mental, physical and sexual abuse, PEOPLE has learned that Dr. Luke’s legal team has successfully petitioned a judge to unseal documents from an unrelated 2011 case in which Kesha denies any such abuse.

“[Dr.] Luke’s latest legal maneuver comes as no surprise,” Kesha’s lawyer Mark Geragos tells PEOPLE.

Dr. Luke, 41, has adamantly denied the abuse claims since the accusations were filed on Oct. 14, but Geragos believes this request to unseal documents is just Dr. Luke making good on the threats they say the mega-producer made to keep Kesha, 27, silent.

“As detailed in our complaint, [Dr.] Luke walked Kesha down the beach and threatened to destroy Kesha’s life and the lives of her family if she didn’t cover up his sexual assaults in a 2011 deposition,” says Geragos.

In the documents in question, Kesha is quoted as affirming that she and Dr. Luke had shared a bed at least once, but she explicitly denies that they ever had an “intimate relationship” or that he ever gave her a “roofie.” Kesha’s mother Pebe Sebert is also quoted as denying that anyone – including her daughter – ever informed her that Dr. Luke had “slipped Kesha a date rape drug” or that “they had had a sexual relationship of any kind.”

Geragos suggests that Kesha’s 2011 denials stemmed from her close relationship with the producer, whom she signed with when she was just 18.

“Unfortunately, protecting abusers out of fear happens all too often with battered women,” Geragos says. “[But] after being driven to the brink of death and into rehab, she’s no longer going to allow herself to wither away at the hands of her abuser as he tries to blame the victim.”

Former Washington Post Editor Ben Bradlee Dead at 93

Ben Bradlee, the hard-charging editor who guided The Washington Post through its Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the Watergate scandal and invigorated its newsroom for more than two decades, died Tuesday. He was 93.

Bradlee died at his home of natural causes, The Post reported.

As managing editor first and later as executive editor, the raspy-voiced Bradlee engineered the transformation of The Post from a sleepy hometown paper into a great national one. He brought in a cast of talented journalists and set editorial standards that brought the paper new respect.

Bradlee got an early break as a journalist thanks to his friendship with one president, John F. Kennedy, and became famous for his role in toppling another, Richard Nixon, helping guide Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s coverage of the Watergate scandal.

Actor Jason Robards turned Bradlee into a box-office hit with his Oscar-winning portrayal of the editor in the movie All the President’s Men. Bradlee’s marriage in 1978 to Post star reporter Sally Quinn (his third) added more glamour to his image.

He was one of the few to know the identity early on of the celebrated Watergate source dubbed Deep Throat, finally revealed publicly in 2005 as FBI official W. Mark Felt.
