Out & About: New York

‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’ Television Appearance

Kristin Cavallari meets with Cosmopolitan

As any true early-aughts-era MTV stan knows: Kristin Cavallari was the best part of Laguna Beach and The Hills. And she’s back—this time on E! in Very Cavallari, premiering on Sunday and chronicling the high-drama goings-on of Cavallari and her staff at her Nashville flagship store Uncommon James, home to her jewelry and décor collections.

But don’t expect the same reality TV villain you’ve come to love/love to hate. “I've grown a lot,” Cavallari explained when she stopped by HQ this week to chat about the new series. “With Laguna Beach and The Hills, they really only showed one side of my personality and that's how it was amplified. On Very Cavallari, you get to see every side. As a wife and a mom. As a best friend. As a boss.” (OK, fine. You can expect a little of the old Kristin, too: “The boss side is the closest to the Laguna Beach and The Hills Kristin.”

Cosmopolitan did a short interview with Kristin about her upcoming reality show Very Cavallari:

On her new show:
"I launched my flagship store and my headquarters in Nashville because my husband retired from football. And with that, I felt like there was just a good opportunity to do a reality show where it's not just focused on my family. It doesn't rely on my marriage for the drama; I can leave it up to my staff. It's sort of the best of both worlds for me. And while Jay, my husband, is on it, my kids are not. I'm really excited because it gets me back into reality TV without airing my dirty laundry."

On being behind the camera:
"I'm an executive producer this time around so I have a say in what's going on, and I always know what is going on. I have some creative control and having that security blanket is such a great feeling coming from Laguna Beach and The Hills. I don't think I would have done it had I not gotten that just because, you know, it's one thing when I was 18 and it was just me to look out for, but I have three kids, I'm a wife, it's no longer just me that I have to think about anymore."

On prepping the Uncommon James staff for reality TV fame:
"I really just wanted to make sure that they were comfortable the whole time — I never had someone that I could go to during Laguna Beach or The Hills. Now with this show gearing up to premiere everyone has had their moment of freaking out about what's to come, which I get. Right now, I'm telling them to not to read any of the comments once the show premieres. What I've learned is, no matter what you do, you can't please everybody. So at the end of the day you should just do you and live your life. And who cares if someone in wherever doesn't like you. Other people do."

On being an executive producer — and learning about what’s actually going down behind the scenes:
"I've definitely had some moments of like, OK, I always knew these things were going on on Laguna Beach and The Hills. But now to see them firsthand — OK, got it. These were the discussions that producers were having about me at one point. Yeah, that doesn't sit well with me. These are discussions about storylines and specific things that we're trying to get for the show. Producers tend to look at these people as cast mates when really, they are people. And, for me, this is my real company. So there's that fine line of yes, we are making a reality show but this is also real life. But at the end of the day, we're filming a TV show and I get it. And that's also what I told the girls, too: If you're not going to fully embrace it, there's no point in doing it. Just enjoy it and have fun."

On why she wouldn’t let her kids do reality TV:
"I guess a little part of me just thinks I was so young to be doing some of that stuff. I was 17, I wasn't even an adult yet. But I don't look back and regret anything. I'm so thankful for my experience. And ultimately I have such a positive feeling towards both Laguna Beach and The Hills. I wouldn't trade it for the world. I just think about how young I was—I don't think I would let my kids do a show until they're 18 years old and they can legally make that decision."

On this classic Cabo clip from Laguna Beach:
"I wasn't even doing anything! I got so much shit for that — I mean, they made it seem like I was the only one up on the bar dancing that's what everybody does in Cabo. I still go to Cabo. People are still dancing in the bars. And I wasn't with Stephen. But no, I was the bad guy. Just living my life, man."

On where the evolution of her style and where she finds design inspo:
"I'm inspired, truly, by the modern woman. The modern woman doesn't have time every morning to, say, try on ten different pieces of jewelry. Everyone wants to grab and go. I want you to throw on all of my jewelry and never take it off. I don't want you to think about it. I'm drawn to simplicity with everything in my life whether it's my personal style, how I decorate my house, whatever. When I was on Laguna Beach I didn't even know what fashion was. And then I graduated high school and moved up to L.A. and I was in the entertainment business going to photo shoots and all of a sudden had stylists I was working with and getting to wear all these great clothes but because I had no idea what my style was, I just sort of conformed to whatever people wanted to put me in."

On what present-day Very Cavallari Kristin would say to 17-year-old Laguna Beach Kristin:
"Enunciate. Enunciate your damn words."

‘Wendy Williams Show’ Television Appearance

Kristin Cavallari meets with Elle

Kristin visits Elle to chat about her new show Very Cavallari.

"What would reality TV be like without Kristin Cavallari? We had to contemplate that particular void over the last seven years, during which the former Laguna Beach and The Hills star took a break from lifecasting. Instead, she brought up her three children with husband Jay Cutler, Camden, 5, Jaxon, 4, and Saylor, 2—without the glare of the lens.

But when Cutler, a former NFL quarterback, retired, the family relocated to Nashville and Cavallari decided to return to the reality roost. This time, it's with Very Cavallari, tracking the opening of her Uncommon James boutique—and the surprisingly recognizable everyday drama of office stoushes, car parking (seriously), and family–work clashes.

Cavallari dropped in to to Insta-stalk her E! colleagues and explain why she's back for another stint in the spotlight—but her kids are nowhere to be seen."

It’s been almost eight years since you stopped filming The Hills. What made you come back to reality TV?
A few things lined up. One is my husband stopped playing football. For the last eight years, I’ve sort of been on his schedule. Now, with him being done, we’re in Nashville full time. So we’re in one place, he can kind of help with the kids, where before he was working a lot. I decided to open up my headquarters, my flagship store of Uncommon James in Nashville. Which I think offers a great backdrop and "cast members"—it’s my real staff—for the show. My staff are all in their early twenties, they’re all living their lives. It’s the best of both worlds, where it gets me back into reality TV, but the real personal drama is centered around my staff, so I don’t have to air my dirty laundry.

Were you nervous about doing it?
I had a little moment right before we started filming of, "Oh my God, I think I made the wrong decision," but that quickly went away as soon as we started filming. I’m an executive producer this time around, so having that security blanket and knowing I get to see everything beforehand, and that if we really needed to we could change some stuff…that really put my mind at ease. Working with a team of producers that respect and value my creative direction with the show is such a dream come true. And it’s not about my family. Jay is on it, but my kids are not on it. So it’s not a show that is relying on my dynamic with my husband to be successful. While he’s a part of it, it’s not the whole show.

I read that you had to convince Jay to be on the show, because he’s more of a private person. How did that go?
He really doesn’t want anything to do with reality TV, to be quite honest. But he’s doing it to support me and he understands what a good opportunity it is for me. And so my biggest concern with filming the show was just making sure that he was always comfortable. Before we started filming we talked beforehand about what we were willing to put out there, what we weren’t where in the house we could film—you’ll never see the master bedroom, for example. We both just wanted to make sure we have some stuff that’s just for us, that’s private. And of course with the kids, that was a no-brainer for us, not putting them on the show.

Has Jay seen The Hills or Laguna Beach?
Only...I think MTV played them one summer and he put it on as a joke. So no, not really. He’s seen little bits and pieces but never a full episode.

So when you met, he’d never seen the show?
No [laughs]. It’s better that way.

Your kids aren’t on the show. But if they were teenagers and wanted to be on reality TV, what would tell them? What kind of conversation would you want to have?
Obviously, if they were 18, they could do it. I guess if they were teenagers and we really had a serious conversation and they really wanted to be part of it…like, let’s say I’m still doing Very Cavallari [laughs]. Then maybe I would have them on it a little bit. I would never let them do a show about just them. I would never trade in my experience, but I was so young doing Laguna Beach. I didn’t know what the hell I was doing. And while I’m so thankful for it, I just want my kids to be kids. There’s so much pressure already to be a teenager that I don’t think they should have to worry about cameras in their face.

That's based on your own experience on those shows?
Yes and no. Yes, in that I was so young and I was such a mess and…I had a lot of growing up to do. Again, I’m so thankful for it. But with my kids, I just want to keep them kids. Right now we don’t want to put them on the show, because we don’t want to rob them of the decision to have their lives blasted everywhere. We want them to be able to make that decision. And so what age is that? I don’t know. We’ll figure it out.

Uncommon James is a huge focus of the show. What will we learn about it?
You’ll see how involved I am. It’s my company, it’s only me. It’s truly my fourth child and I treat it as such. I think a lot of times people assume celebrities just attach their name to something, but this is my baby.

The show tracks the flagship store's progress before the opening. Is it open now? Can we go there?
It is! It’s been open for a few months and it's been really fun. It’s doing well. I’m so proud and happy.

How do your staff feel about being on the show?
Each person individually has had a moment of, "Oh my God, the show is about to premiere!" Which I understand. I remember going through that on Laguna Beach. So I’m just happy that I’ve been able to be there for them. I always wanted to make sure that they were comfortable with what was happening. For me it was tough, because this is a real business, everyone has a real job, so that should take precedence. But at the same time we also want to film a good TV show, and make it interesting. So that was a weird line to walk the entire time we were shooting. Ever since the camera stopped, it’s been a little bit of a relief for everybody to get back to real work. Everyone’s excited. But I feel for them because I remember being in their shoes.

Anything you learned from your former reality show experiences that you took to Very Cavallari?
Coming from two very successful reality shows, you just kind of know what goes into making a good show. I always looked at Laguna Beach and The Hills through a producer’s eye. I knew we were there to make a good show and I was all about that. I could separate me personally from the shows and say, "Okay, what do we need to make this a good TV show?"

It’s different for me this time around, because it’s one thing when I was 18 and it was only me. Now I’m a wife and I have three kids. So there’s a little part of me, even just watching some of the episodes now, that's like, "Ah, maybe I shouldn’t have said that. Not a good look for a mom but okay, here’s me and my best friend and this is how we really talk." I had a few little things taken out, but for the most part I left everything in because it's relatable.

Do you also look back at some of the outfits you were wearing on, say, The Hills, and go, "Oh my goodness"?
I don’t think there’s one outfit where I’m like, "That was a good choice." Everything is like "Why?" But at the time, 2005 or whatever…it was cool. We were all wearing the same stuff.

How is your style different now?
It’s evolved so much. I really had no style in the early days. Over the years, working with so many different stylists and being able to wear great designers, I’ve really figured out what my style is. I’m effortless all the way. I want to give the illusion that I just threw an outfit together, even though that probably wasn’t the case. I never want to look overdone. Simplicity is key with everything in my life. I know what works for my body type now and I don’t stray too often. I’m very short and very petite, so more form-fitting stuff on me looks better.
How does your style come through in the show?

There's two sides to me on the show. One is business me, me going into the office, which has been really fun to be honest—to be able to put outfits together every day and have an office to go to. Because I lived in leggings for so many years, just being a mom. Which is nice too. And then it’s me at home, more relaxed, just cooking dinner or hanging out.

There's this one scene where Jay is helping you pick out a sweater and he says, "I always help you pick out your clothes." Is that true?
No...[laughter]. I’ll definitely ask his opinion, and sometimes I listen, but sometimes it’s like, with any girl, "You don’t know what you’re talking about. You don't understand fashion."

Your cookbook, True Roots, came out earlier this year. Do you do any cooking on the show?
I’m cooking a couple times. Would I love to be cooking the entire time? Yes. But it’s more about what makes sense for a show. I mean, you film a scene for, let’s say 45 minutes—it has to be edited down to a minute or two.

So you're just chopping an onion?
Literally. I’m like doing dishes, but really I was cooking the whole time.

Kristin Cavallari meets with Us Weekly - Explains Why She's Going Back to Reality TV

Back to reality! Kristin Cavallari has come a long way since her days on The Hills and Laguna Beach. The MTV alum has retired her former "bitch" status and is replacing it with an executive producer title on her new E! reality series Very Cavallari. The Hills vet sat down exclusively with Us Weekly and dished on her return to television. Watch the video above to hear how she convinced hubby Jay Cutler to be on board with the show, and which areas of her life are totally off limits! And, for more on Cavallari and her new show, pick up the new issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands now.

Us Weekly Magazine did a short interview with Kristin about her upcoming show Very Cavallari:

Tell Us how this show will be different from The Hills and Laguna Beach.
This time around, it’s really nice for me because I am an executive producer, I sort of have that security blanket, and it allows me to just film freely and not have to worry about things I was saying. I have gotten a few things taken out. Just to be honest. I think as a mom, sometimes I need to watch myself a little bit more and so, I left a few things in that will probably get me in trouble. But at the same time, I am trying to make a good show, and I understand what goes into it. But yes, having some creative control and really working with a team of people that respect my decisions was really great. It was a really enjoyable experience for me.

Will your kids make cameos on the show?
My kids are not on it. Jay and I really, we just don’t want to rob them of that decision to have their lives blasted all over the place, but you still get to see me as a mom in some sense –Facetiming my kids or talking about my kids or whatever. But yeah, so I’m excited. It’s just my life in Nashville. It’s nice to be in one place now. We used to go back and forth between Chicago and Nashville, so just to be in one spot, and with Jay being done with football, I just felt it was a good time for me to get back on TV.

Did you have to convince Jay to do it?
Yeah. I did. He just told me I had to convince him to still do it. Jay is a very private person. And even though he played football, he really only wanted to play football, and he didn’t really like the whole media aspect of it all, so it was very new for him, but we were … we just talked beforehand about what we wanted to talk about and what we didn’t want to talk about, areas in the house that we wanted to show, and we didn’t want to show. I just wanted to make sure that he was comfortable. Obviously, my family is way more important to me than filming a show, so as long as he was cool, I was cool.

What areas are off limits?
Master bedroom. Off limits. You do see the master bathroom, but not the master bedroom!

Is there conflict between you and Jay on the show?
Well, no, because Jay and I really talked about what we were comfortable putting out there, and we let you into our relationship, but we still kind of keep you here, which is the only way that either one of use would do it. You see us battling about moving, moving houses and stuff like that, but it’s all in good fun, there’s no … we’re not really airing our dirty laundry on the show.

Why did you decide to settle down in Nashville?
Jay went to Vanderbilt. One of the first times we ever hung out, we came to Nashville for 24 hours and I completely fell in love. And we just decided that this was where we wanted to be when he was done with football. We just always knew this is where we wanted to raise our family.

Tell us about your role as executive producer of Very Cavallari.
I’ve seen seven of the eight episodes, and I really do think it’s good. I think this is the first show that I can really get behind and say this is in fact me. Even though coming from reality TV, I could never really say that. So that’s nice for me. It’s the grown-up Kristin, and you get to see me as a boss now, and sort of handing the torch over to everybody else to allow to take the lead on the drama front. It’s not necessarily about my personal drama, which is very nice.

Kristin Cavallari’s ‘True Roots’ Cookbook Is All About Quality Ingredients — And This One Is Her Favorite

She may have gotten her start as a lead cast member of MTV reality shows Laguna Beach and The Hills, but these days Kristin Cavallari is up to something a little different. Her new cookbook True Roots comes packed with different recipes that don't contain many common allergens like gluten and refined sugar, but are still full of flavor. The one ingredient she says she will never give up? Sheep's milk Manchego cheese.

I just love cheese. I always have. It's one thing that I could never give up — but I have a sensitivity to cow's milk that just makes me feel awful when I eat it. Sheep's milk, though, is easier on the digestive system, and this Manchego cheese is very mild and similar to Parmesan, so it's a great alternative that's really easy to incorporate in so many different ways into so many different dishes. It's very versatile.

I have known about my sensitivity for eight years or so, but I only discovered this cheese three or four years ago. I went to my grocery store and I just tried every single kind of sheep and goat milk cheese that they had to offer, and this was my favorite.

My dad is full Italian, and I grew up with my full Italian grandma always making pizza fritte, the best apple pie on the planet, and just pasta and meatballs — all that really great stuff. Her apple pie recipe is actually in my cookbook. I cooked a lot with both of my parents while I was growing up, too, and my mom made dinner for us every night. I used to bake with my mom a lot too, and I always knew that that was the kind of mom that I wanted to be: I wanted to be the mom that cooked dinner for her children every night.

So, once I had kids, I really just started cooking all the time, and I wanted to cook healthy, but I wanted it to be good, too. I think there's a stigma that eating healthy means being boring and like you're missing out on stuff. I eat everything: I eat pasta, I eat cheese, I eat sweets. And that's why I like the sheep's milk Manchego cheese — it's so versatile, but also healthy.

I'm by no means a chef, I'm just a mom who likes to cook healthy. So, I worked with a private chef, Mike Kubiesa, in Chicago, who helped me with the cookbook — he gave me a ton of private lessons and I truly credit all of my food knowledge to him. He is a food genius, and he really helped me a lot, and helped elevate me as a cook.

One of my favorite ways to use the sheep's milk Manchego cheese is in the cookbook: It's a cashew ricotta cheese that I make a veal braciole with. While I don't use milk or cream — I make the ricotta with cashews — I do put some of this cheese in there, and it gives it a great flavor. It's so good, I could eat the ricotta with a spoon.

My kids and husband also enjoy it — they eat the same way I do, so the cookbook is a very good representation of how my family eats on a daily basis. I frequently make most of the recipes for them, and they love it.
