Moving forward! Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag and Audrina Patridge are totally “Team Kristin” amid Kristin Cavallari‘s divorce from Jay Cutler, and they hope it means she’ll come back to The Hills
“I think Kristin is going to be better off,” Pratt, 36, said on “The Speidi Podcast” on Monday, May 18. “I’m excited for her new chapter — hopefully on The Hills, you know, dating.”
Patridge, 35, also admitted that “it would be nice to have her on The Hills” whenever the show comes back. However, she understands that Cavallari, 33, will most likely stay in Nashville, where her three children are. The Very Cavallari star and the former quarterback, 37, share Camden, 7, Jaxon, 6, and Saylor, 4. The duo announced their split in April after seven years of marriage. Us Weekly confirmed that the pair have since settled on a custody agreement for their three children, giving each parent 182.5 days a year with the kids.
Patridge noted on the podcast that she can relate to Cavallari, having gone through a divorce in 2017 from her husband of less than a year, Corey Bohan. The pair share a 3-year-old daughter, Kirra.
“We talked a little bit, two or three weeks ago when it first all came out but she just needs time to process and heal,” the Prey Swim designer said. “It’s literally, almost like mourning a death, going through a divorce. There’s highs and lows of fighting and being so sad and thinking, ‘Did I do the right thing?’ It’s like an emotional roller coaster.”
Luckily, Cavallari’s former costars definitely have her back. “She’s a tough girl,” Patridge noted, with Montag, 33, adding, “She is one of the most resilient, awesome, powerful women.”
Spencer, 36, agreed with the women about Cavallari’s strength. “I guarantee you she writes a New York Times bestseller, How to Divorce and Win,” he quipped.
On April 24, Kristin Cavallari filed her own divorce papers three days after her ex Jay Cutler did and cited their date of separation as April 7. So much has been said about their split via anonymous sources and unsurfaced videos, but Kristin just broke her silence and opened up about it for the first time.
During an Instagram Live, Kristin suggested that she actually hasn’t returned to her family home in Nashville since she and Jay returned from the Bahamas on April 7. She told her stylist, “[My best friend Justin Anderson and I] have been together for the entire quarantine time—literally from day one.” That “we” definitely includes her three kids, Camden, Jaxon, and Saylor too. But being quarantined with three children and getting a divorce in a middle of a pandemic obviously has its own challenges. She said, “We’ve maxed out every creative idea” adding, “I will tell you, the no school thing is tough. With the boys, Jaxon will not listen to me. He refuses to do work.” Kristin went on to say she doesn’t have the energy to fight with them about doing their schoolwork (fair) and that “everyone’s going a little stir-crazy because we really can‘t go anywhere.” As for her personal routine, her 5 a.m. workouts went out the window a long time ago. “I haven’t set an alarm since all of this has been going on,” the Uncommon James founder said. “It’s going to be really hard for me to get back into it.” Literally same…minus the ever waking up at 5 a.m. to exercise bit.
She also never used to let her kids sleep in her bed with her, but she’s been “rotating” them for the past week. “It’s cute, but those are the moments that will never be the same—we’ll never get those back. So in that sense, I’ve been trying to really enjoy that time with my kids,” she explained.
Unfortunately for the curious fans hoping she’d talk about her divorce more directly than her current living situation, Kristin didn’t. Considering recent reports accused Jay of being “rude,” “distant,” and a “jerk,” during their marriage, it’s understandable why she didn’t even go there.
