Kristin Cavallari may not be on reality TV for now, but the drama is still going on. She quit her E! Show “Very Cavallari” in 2020 after her split from ex-NFL player Jay Cutler because she didn’t want the divorce to happen on the show. Cutler appeared alongside her on “Very Cavallari,” where, with the help of their staff, they launched Cavallari’s line of jewelry and stocked Uncommon James. Fans noted that the couple seemed out of sync on the show as Cutler wanted Cavallari to play a domestic role while she was more focused on her business.
Even though Cavallari and Cutler stopped filming “Very Cavallari,” the headlines about their divorce still keep viewers in the loop. Cutler was briefly linked to country singer Jana Kramer in 2021, while Cavallari became the subject of an awkward name drop on “Summer House” in 2022. Speaking of Bravo shows, Cutler had his own drama with Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy. Despite the former couple’s efforts to escape reality TV, it always seems to find them.
It doesn’t help that they’ve been open about things ending on bad terms. Speaking on the June 1 podcast Uncut With Jay Cutler (via Us Weekly), the former athlete said: “When the settlement went through, I threw a party. I do not recommend divorce to anyone. I’m just going to go ahead and say this, but, um, it worked.” But wait, there’s more: Comments from Cavallari fan the flames even more now.
Kristin Cavallari Says Divorce Is ‘The Best Thing I’ve Ever Done’
On the June 29 episode of the School of Greatness podcast, Kristin Cavallari opened up about the finalization of her divorce from Jay Cutler. After a long custody battle over her three children, she has officially moved on and is ready for a fresh start. On the podcast, Cavallari said (via Daily Mail), “The scariest thing I’ve ever done is get a divorce, but it’s been the best thing I’ve ever done and it really kickstarted my journey to myself.” Got it going – love and finding out who I am now.”
Rather than getting professional help, Cavallari credits the divorce process to writing, meditation, and just talking to friends: “It’s interesting because I’ve been in therapy pretty much my entire life, but this was the one time I’ve didn’t go to therapy […] Sometimes I think friends are the best therapists on the planet.”
While the statement is framed in a mental health-positive way, Cutler might still sting to hear it. The couple dated for almost ten years, meeting in 2010 and wed in 2013. Either way, if they’re both as happy as they say this split might have been for the best.
