WEEKLY Kristin Cavallari ‘I HATE DO­ING RE­AL­ITY TV!’ K

The Very Cavallari star isn’t down for drama – she’s all about busi­ness

NW - - Reality Weekly -

ristin Cavallari may have left the bright lights of La La Land be­hind for life on the farm in Ten­nessee, but she’s not quite out of the Hol­ly­wood, ahem, hills just yet!

The 32-year-old’s neigh­bours in the ritzy ru­ral en­clave of Franklin in­clude Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth and Ni­cole Kid­man and Keith Ur­ban. And she’s still deal­ing with re­al­ity TV drama on Sea­son Two of her E! show, Very Cavallari – which cen­tres on her Un­com­mon James fash­ion store in Nashville – and her re­la­tion­ship with for­mer­foot­baller hubby Jay Cut­ler, 35.

Once a La­guna Beach and The Hills bad girl, Kristin is now mum to Camden, six, Jaxon, four, and Say­lor, three – and rather than mix­ing mar­gar­i­tas, she’s be­come a master multi-tasker. She gives NW a call to chat about get­ting su­per per­sonal on her show, want­ing to build a bil­lion-dol­lar brand and how she’d hap­pily ditch the cam­eras if she could...

Do you ever worry you’ll run out of drama for Very Cavallari – or do your em­ploy­ees at Un­com­mon James keep pleas­antly sur­pris­ing you?

We’ve man­aged to be OK so far. I talk to a lot of small busi­ness own­ers and they tell me they all have the same teething prob­lems with staff. We’re still just work­ing things out.

Your fel­low re­al­ity stars Jes­sica Simp­son and Kylie Jenner have man­aged to create bil­lion-dol­lar busi­nesses – is that the goal with your brand?

There’s no one celebrity I want to em­u­late, but my ul­ti­mate goal is of course to make Un­com­mon James a house­hold name. There’s so much I want to do with it – we’re full steam ahead!

Do you ad­mire the Kar­dashi­ans for their busi­ness savvy?

Lis­ten, if I could have a lit­tle piece of their busi­ness, that would be amaz­ing.

Now that you’re all on E!, do you see each other much?

No. Our paths rarely cross. They’re in LA and I’m out here in Nashville.

Do you miss those noughties days of be­ing on The Hills and

La­guna Beach?

It def­i­nitely feels like a whole other life! I got all that out of my sys­tem and now I’m just lov­ing be­ing a wife and mum and run­ning my busi­ness.

Do you ever see a time where you leave the cam­eras be­hind and just set­tle down to life on the farm – or is that not you?

Of course! With­out the cam­eras, ab­so­lutely! I don’t love do­ing re­al­ity TV. The only – well I shouldn’t say only – but the main rea­son I’m do­ing it is be­cause it’s great mar­ket­ing for Un­com­mon James. Jay would pre­fer the cam­eras not to be there, so that makes it more dif­fi­cult. But right now it’s worth it to pro­mote the busi­ness.

You’re open­ing up about the death of your brother Michael (who passed away in 2015) a lot more this sea­son – is it hard to get that per­sonal on cam­era?

Yeah. It is. It’s a scary place to go to. But it’s real and what I’m go­ing through, and I went to places I didn’t re­ally want to go to in Sea­son One.

Stream or down­load Very Cavallari Sea­son Two on hayu the same day as the US or watch at 8.30pm Mon­days on E!
