Fans make a lot of assumptions about celebrity marriages, and that of Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler is no exception.
But now the Laguna Beach alum is setting the record straight on her not-so-perfect union with the NFL star.
On SiriusXM's "Wake Up With Taylor," Cavallari addresses a longstanding rumor that back in 2011, Cutler called off their engagement.
She clarified that in fact is was she, K. Cav, who broke it off. Because women can break up with men, too, you know.
"All the tabloids said that Jay broke up with me, called off the engagement... and I was like, what the f**k?" she said. "That's not true! But I didn't say anything 'cause I didn't think it was anybody's business."
She also recounted another popular tabloid trope that was cast upon her after she got pregnant.
"I got pregnant shortly thereafter, so everyone's like 'she got pregnant on purpose,' blah blah blah," she continued. "And I'm like, oh my God, this is crazy! If I got pregnant on purpose, why would he marry me and have more kids with me? Wouldn't he hate me?"
I mean, yeah, I would think so.
Despite the drama, the two eventually did tie the knot in 2013 and they now have three kids together.
However, their relationship is far from perfect, she openly admits.
'We don’t have a perfect relationship," she said. "You know, we work on it. We’re in therapy."
The former reality star explained that seeing a therapist has helped her understand why she has certain reactions to situations and has provided them both with valuable communication tools.
"One hundred percent, I think it saved our relationship," she continued. “It’s the best."
In her new memoir, Balancing in Heels, Cavallari explained that she broke the engagement to Cutler because "something wasn't right" with their relationship.
"I knew the only way Jay would see how serious I was, was if I ended the relationship," she wrote.
The mom of three has been doing a lot of talking lately to promote her new book. She's even spilled some secrets about Laguna Hills that took fans by surprise.
"I was really unhappy," she said of her time on the show.
Balancing in Heels describes Cavallari's "journey to health, happiness and making it all work" and is available now.
