Reality show host Kristin Cavallari is sadly divorcing her husband Jay Cutler after years of marriage. Even though the separation isn’t a good thing, the star revealed that she was excited about the next level of her life.


In April 2020, Kristin Cavallari, 33, and her husband Jay Cutler, 37, announced in a joint statement on Instagram that they were divorcing. The pair had been together since marrying in 2013.

The couple’s divorce announcement came after they spent three weeks self-isolating in the Bahamas. The trip included their three children, Camden, 8, Jaxon, 6, and Sailor, 4, and two friends.

The divorce news came as a shock to their fans but Cavallari admitted that their separation was something she’d been anticipating. She explained to “Entertainment Tonight (ET)” that she’d been mulling it over for the past two years.

The “Very Cavallari” host sadly confessed: "It was the hardest decision that I have ever made." However, she revealed that she knew it was the right decision because of some advice she’d gotten from her mother.



Cavallari’s mother, Judith Spies Eifrig, used to tell her that she’d know when it was time. The star admitted that she did know and had taken her decision based on that.

Kristin Cavallari host confessed that she too wanted a marriage like her mother’s.

The reality star explained how the decision hadn’t come from nowhere for her and her husband. She shared how they’d worked hard on their marriage for the sake of their children whom they will be co-parenting.



Even though things look a bit bleak with the divorce and the conclusion of her show, the star was still quite positive. The star, who announced the end of her show in May 2020, revealed to ET:

“I'm excited about the next chapter."



Cavallari is looking forward to her upcoming jewelry collection for Uncommon James and her new cookbook, “True Comfort.” She confessed to having hard days but revealed that she was focusing on her children.

The star shared how she was making sure her children were okay through this trying time. She admitted that the three children were currently handling it quite well.



The host shared how she was staying positive and keeping her focus on positive things. However, that didn’t mean she didn’t have days when she was sad.

Unfortunately, her marriage just couldn’t work. The star, who met Cutler when she was just 23, explained that they’d tried everything they could to make things work.



The reality star noted how she and Cutler had shared so much love together that no one could ever take away. Despite loving each other, the pair still couldn’t find happiness together.  

Cavallari also noted how life was just too short to stay unhappy. She referenced her parents’ divorce as being the catalyst that allowed her to see her mother happily married in a real union.



The talk show host confessed that she too wanted a marriage like her mother’s. Besides wanting happiness for herself; the star admitted that she also wanted it for her children.

The interview with ET was the first time the talk show host opened up about her divorce on-camera. Although her marriage was frequently profiled on “Very Cavallari;” the difficult parts in it were never discussed and she ended it to avoid that.



Another couple who caved during the novel coronavirus pandemic is country musician Kelly Clarkson. “The Voice” coach and her husband and manager Brandon Blackstock are going their separate ways.

Clarkson went public about her divorce from her husband of seven years. However, just like Cavallari, she too put her children’s wellbeing first and chose to keep her divorce details private.
