Kristin Cavallari opens up on filming 'Very Cavallari' season 2 and how she's keeping it 'real' for her fans
Kristin Cavallari makes two things her priority: striking the work-life balance and staying honest to her fans.
Season 2 of 'Very Cavallari' has been emotional and quite dramatic, to say the least. With filming dates of the reality show centering around Kristin Cavallari coinciding with the death anniversary of her brother, fans have been able to see a glimpse of how the 32-year-old businesswoman and mom-of-three is coping with the loss in one of the more recent episodes. But at the same time, this season also saw Kristin having a shoulder to lean on as her NFL star husband, Jay Cutler, rose to husband goals extraordinaire when it came to consoling her and keeping the mood light all around.
"I feel like this season, we have a lot more heart," shared Kristin in an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW.) "We went to a lot of real places and I think that's because of who I'm working with behind the camera," she adds, telling us about the in general vibe of season 2 that has also largely focused on Kristin's lifestyle brand, Uncommon James. "I'm working with a lot of people that I really respect and they respect me, and I trust them," she adds, explaining how despite the challenges, she has always come out triumphant.
But even though Kristin keeps slaying with Uncommon James and otherwise, the one thing she insists is keeping it 'real' for her fans when it comes to the show. "There's a lot of hard work, but there's definitely more Jay and I this season," she remarks about how season 2 has been different from the debut season of her reality show. And that is true, as the former quarterback keeps bringing to the screen his signature Jay moments which are always hilarious thanks to his impeccable timing.
Putting your personal life out there for the public to see can be hard, but Kristin is not one to shy away from the camera, especially when it comes to offering an honest view of her life to her fans. "I was pretty honest this season about everything that was going on my life," she tells us, adding: "Even including Jay and I, when we were in the transitional phase - there were ups and downs, but that's what marriage is. So yeah, I just put us out there."
Speaking about transitional phases, this season also saw Kristin's move to the countryside along with her husband and three kids. But juggling her new life at a lavish farm alongside her constantly growing brand, Kristin believes she is a good mix of the quintessential country girl and city girl. "The one thing I love about living in the countryside is how different it is from my crazy life in LA or New York. I'm really loving the country life, it just feels like home," she spills.
But this is not Kristin's only home, as her fans recently saw her go on a trip all the way back to Laguna Beach, California, where she grew up with her family, and where her dad still lives. The trip was meant to check up on her father, as the dates coincided with the death anniversary of Kristin's brother, Mike. We asked Kristin how she's been holding up on that front, and she would like to reassure her fans that "It's up and down like everybody says: you think you're okay, but you're sort of nowhere." But she is surrounded by people who adore her and like the ever driven inspiration that she is, she's doing the best she can.
'Very Cavallari' airs on Sundays at 10 pm, only on E!
