Kristin Cavallari is carrying on as best as she can.
The Hills star, who recently opened up to ET about losing her brother, also discussed the state of her marriage with Chicago Bears Quarterback, Jay Cutler. The mom-of-three admits that while family is her rock, their relationship is something they work to keep strong.
"I'm very honest about the fact that we have problems," the 29-year-old reality star candidly tells ET. "We don't have a perfect relationship."
Part of that imperfection happened before the two tied the knot in 2013. “We got engaged after 8 months, and then broke up just a couple months later,” Kristin admits.
"At the time, I thought, 'I'd rather figure it out now than further down the line, after we get married, and have kids, and it blows up in our face,'" she reasons. "That was a risk that I was willing to take when I cut off the engagement."
"It was the best thing that's happened to my relationship," the former Laguna Beach star adds.
Meanwhile, Kristin has a lot going on as well, with her shoe and jewelry endeavors into fashion, as well as her new book, Balancing in Heels, where the TV personality offers a candid look into her own life, including past body image issues.
"Luckily, I've never had a severe eating disorder," Kristin explains, noting however, "I did every diet, and I was always counting calories and beating myself up any time I would binge eat.”
