Kristin Cavallari Says Career Has Suffered Living in Chicago

Former reality TV star Kristin Cavallari says her career has suffered “a little bit” since she moved to Chicago with her husband Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, but the city offers her something living in the limelight never could.

“I’d be lying if I didn’t say that, living in Chicago I feel like my career suffers a little bit just because I am completely out of the limelight,” she told Yahoo! Celebrity. “But I would so much rather be with my family and essentially be a stay-at-home mom. It’s all worth it. I just try to just focus on that and just be thankful for everything that I have.”

The comment came during an interview to discuss how the now-fashion designer went from launching a shoe line with Chinese Laundry to designing jewelry with her best friend.

It’s not the first time the 29-year-old, who has Midwest roots, has hinted at a sense of regret over living in the city.

Last year, she told Elle Magazine she hopes to move to the Nashville area when Cutler’s six-year contract ends because “Chicago’s just not home.”

Cavallari recently gave birth to the couple’s third child, a daughter named Saylor James. She is also mom to two sons, Camden and Jaxon.

“They are growing up so fast,” she told Yahoo!. “Saylor has her bottom two teeth now, which is very exciting. And she just started eating food, so that’s been fun. And Jackson, I think, is officially potty trained. He hasn’t been wearing diapers, except for at nighttime, which is awesome. But he and Camden, when they are out in the backyard, they’ll just pee in the grass. And I’m OK with it. You have to pick your battles.”
