8. Struggles With Food
After becoming famous as a teenager, Kristin Cavallari was faced with the criticisms and bullying about her looks and weight from the public as many in the public eye do, and admits this affected her severely. She became sucked into the world of diets and fads, “Beyond the food itself, my eating habits were equally damaging. I would be super strict for 5 days, then binge eat for 2. During the week, I tried to stay around 1800 calories a day and would be hungry and unsatisfied most of the time. Then the weekend came, it was a free-for-all.” She explained that after getting pregnant for the first time with son Camden, she changed her ways and while she eliminates many things from her diet, she now has a healthy and regular diet.
7. Meeting Jay
Following the fame of Laguna Beach, Kristin, along with some of the other cast were lucky enough to keep their fame going with a new show —The Hills. She has remained in the spotlight too as the wife of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, and many have always wondered how the two even got together in the first place, which she finally explains was all thanks to her reality show fame. “When I was in the middle of filming The Hills, I got a phone call from my publicist that Jay Cutler wanted to fly me to Chicago and take me on a date.” Initally she refused because of a bad experience she had with a different Chicago athlete, but she ended up reconsidering Jay’s offer. “A year later, a year in which I grew up a lot and felt serious about meeting a good man… I called up my publicist and got us family passes to meet Jay after the game.” Their relationship was red hot from that moment on with Cavallari describing it as a “swift and intense romance.”
