Kristin Cavallari Defends Anti-Vaccine Stance: I'm Just a Mom, it's Just My Decision!

by at .  Updated at .

Kristin Cavallari knows a lot of people don't support her choice to not vaccinate her son, but she's okay with that, saying it's her personal choice.

Appearing on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday, the pregnant former Hills star defended her anti-vaccine stance as "the best decision" for her family.

"We got a lot of questions, Kristin, about your stand on vaccines," Andy Cohen said, not beating around the Kristin Cavallari anti-vaccine bush.

"Kat George wants to know, 'How can you knowingly support the spread of potentially deadly diseases by not vaccinating your children?'"

The reality star turned shoe designer, 27, replied, "Here's the thing: At the end of the day, I'm just a mom. I'm trying to make the best decision for my kid,"

"There are very scary statistics out there regarding what's in vaccines and what they cause, asthma, allergies, ear infections, all kinds of things."

"And we feel like we're making the best decision for our kids."

She notably did not include autism in her answer ... this time around.

Kristin Cavallari's opinion first came to light last week when she confessed on the Fox Business show The Independents that she hadn't vaccinated Camden.

"You know what, I've read too many books about autism," she said.

"There is a pediatric group called Homestead, or Home First. They've never vaccinated any of their children, and they've never had one case of autism."

Somewhere, Jenny McCarthy is nodding ... and others are baffled.

She later noted on Fox & Friends that the response to her comments had been "harsh," and that she had not planned to talk about the topic originally.

"It's not something that I publicly wanted to come out and say," she explained. "I was in an interview and it came up, and it wasn't what I was expecting."
