About Kristin Cavallari
American TV personality/celebrity Kristin Elizabeth Cavallari hasn’t had an easy life, but it has been interesting. Born on 5 January, 1987, in Denver Colorado, she had a stressful upbringing after her German mother Judith Eifrig divorced her Italian dad Dennis Cavallari and moved with her two kids to Barrington Illinois. She graduated from Laguna Beach High School in 2005, already a celebrity by that time.
Known for her appearances on reality TV shows, she also has interests in fashion, having created her own line Uncommon James, which offers clothing and jewelry for women on-the-go.
She wed former football quarterback in Jay Cutler on 8 June, 2020, but the couple announced their decision to divorce as a result of ‘growing apart’ in April 2020 before putting up their Nashville mansion for sale at $7.9 million in June. Together they have three children, Camden, Jaxon and Saylor.
Kristin first shot to fame during her appearance in popular MTV reality show Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County when she was still in her junior year of high school. Her romance with on-again off-again Stephen Colletti was central to the plot and caused a rivalry with cast member Lauren Conrad so that a love triangle, central to the plot, kept viewers glued.
Despite appearances in TV series and films, it is reality TV that Kristin does best. She has appeared in Very Cavallari, Get This Party Started (cancelled after two episodes), Laguna Beach’s spin-off series, The Hills, as well as the 13th season Dancing With the Stars where she partnered with Mark Ballas and reached third place.
As a hostess, she has presented red carpet awards shoes with E! News.
Films which feature Kristin include Fingerprints (2006), Wild Cherry (2009) and National Lampoon’s Van Wilder: Freshman Year (2009).
Despite different business interests, most of her wealth has come from reality TV – and it came early. She revealed that she bought her first pair of Christian Louboutin’s when aged 18 using her own money which flowed in through stings on reality television and accompanying endorsements.
What most people don’t know is that Kristin has a brain for business, She headed up a lucrative shoe collaboration with Chinese Laundry for six years and launched Uncommon James in 2017. She trudged through the early months working out of her home, however the business took flight once the reality show Very Cavallari premiered. She stopped the show after three seasons to avoid her divorce from playing out in the public eye.
Not many businesses are as entertaining to watch as Uncommon James so as to justify their own reality show, but Kristin knows how to provoke enough to get a reaction and serve some drama. It’s her good looks and talent for reality which has seen her rise from her villainous days as a bad girl on Laguna Beach to being a badass fashion boss on Very Cavallari.
Kristin can also spot an opportunity and uses reality TV to her advantage, whether it be promoting her business or two cookbooks. Her True Roots reached the New York Times best-seller list, whereas True Comfort was released in September 2020.
A self-proclaimed “go-getter”, Kristin has said she got her first job at 14 because she wanted rather than needed it. Since then, she’s not rested on her laurels and has steadily built her empire through sheer hard work and a drive to succeed.
