“Girls in general are so fascinated with Kristin,” said Kelly Henderson, a stylist and Cavallari’s close friend who also appears on the show.
“I’m so confident in what I’m doing as a parent — both Jay and I are — that the stuff about my kids, or how I’m raising my kids, that’s the one area that doesn’t really get to me, to be completely honest,” Cavallari said. Based on her own experience, she’s hesitant to put her own kids in the limelight when they’re too young to choose if they want to be there.

“How can you knowingly support the spread of potentially deadly diseases by not vaccinating your children?

She wants her fans to see the grown-up version of herself, the working mom who runs her own business.(Colletti and Conrad declined to comment for this story.) In perhaps the show’s most famous scene, during a spring break trip to Cabo while she and Colletti were broken up, Cavallari danced on the bar and later kissed another guy.
