Kristin Cavallari opened up about her divorce in a recent interview on the “School of Greatness” podcast, confessing that parting ways with now-ex-husband Jay Cutler was “the best thing I’ve ever done.”

The remark followed her explaining to the host how her three kids “have inspired me to be the best version of myself … I can only be as good to my kids as I am to myself. If I’m empty, I have nothing to give them.”

With that, she elaborated, “Being in a relationship where I was really unhappy, that wasn’t going to work for me. And I knew in my gut for a long time that I had to do it.

“That was the scariest thing I’ve ever done, is get a divorce,” she said, in addition to it being the “best” decision for herself. Earlier in the conversation, she reflected on the split and the broader impact it has had on her life as a whole.

Cavallari, 35, wed former NFL quarterback Cutler, 39, in June 2013. They share sons Camden, 9, and Jaxon, 8, and daughter Saylor, 6.

In 2020, Page Six exclusively reported that among the core reasons Cavallari ultimately filed for divorce was Cutler’s failure to see through his plan to secure a job in broadcasting after leaving the Bears in 2017, and had become “this lazy, unmotivated guy.”
