Kristin Cavallari reveals why she decided to come back to reality TV shows after ‘Laguna Beach’
Kristin says it's not always about the drama and her new show Very Cavallari will also be seeing her husband Jay Cutler share screen space with her sometimes.
Kristin Cavallari is ready to take over television sets once again with her upcoming reality show, 'Very Cavallari'. Appearing on US Weekly's “Watch With Us” the reality star shed light on how things have changed from the time she first appeared on 'Laguna Beach' from 2004 to 2006 then 'The Hills' from 2009 to 2010. Kristin, who has since married former NFL star Jay Cutler and is a proud mother of three children, has been offered many reality TV shows projects in the past but there was something particular about the new show which convinced her to say a yes.
“It’s different when you’re 18 or 20 and it’s just you. But I have three kids. I’m a wife. It’s not just me anymore that I have to be responsible for and look out for,” she said in the interview. “So I have that security blanket just knowing I’m going to see everything beforehand, I can get things taken out if I want to. In that same breath, I want to make a good show. I know that I have to leave some stuff in there that may be personally is not my best moment, but I know that it’s good TV. As a producer, I’ve had to battle that a little bit.”
While there is no doubt that the show is going to be good, Kristin says it is not always about drama. “This is not the kind of show that we’re flipping tables. I didn’t want to do a show like that,” she said. Kristin revealed that Jay will also be making appearances on the show despite him not wanting to do so. “He never thought he would be doing a reality show, and he really wants no part of it but he’s doing it because he supports me of course," she said.
Kristin revealed that neither Jay nor her kids have seen The Hills or Laguna Beach but she wouldn't mind them seeing what the show was all about because, in her defense, she was a kid when the show aired. “It’s so innocent compared to what’s on TV now. I’m like, ‘God, we weren’t doing anything,’” she said. “[I was] 17 years old with a red solo cup! Then all of a sudden, I’m like ‘Woo!’ We were so innocent then. Simpler times.”
While the show was watched by many, Kristin was soon categorized as the villain on both of them and ended up often surprising people with her sweet nature, contrary to what has been portrayed on the show. “I’m excited for people to see me!” she said.
Meanwhile, she also had an advice for her teen self and that was, “Just calm down. I was so nervous, I started spouting away. If I wasn’t so nervous, I probably would have come out looking a little bit better.”
Very Cavallari premieres on E! Sunday, July 9, at 10 p.m. ET.
