Cavallari was also married to quarterback Jay Cutler for nine years, but that relationship ended in 2020.
Recently, Cavallari was the focus of her own reality TV show, Very Cavallari, which aired from 2018-2020. The show followed Cavallari and her family, her then-husband Jay Cutler and their three children, as they lived in Nashville, Tennessee and learned about the ins and outs of running a business.
But in May 2020, the show was canceled, leaving Cavallari’s fans upset and confused. The reality star announced the end of the show on her Instagram in a post that read, “As I begin this new chapter in my life, I have decided not to continue with ‘Very Cavallari.’ I absolutely loved my time filming and I’m E! Entertainment so grateful for making this trip possible. To the fans: I can’t thank you enough for all your support and for keeping up with me over the years. I love her.”
