This is just a reminder that Kristin Cavallari is still around and that People Magazine is still interviewing her at events. Kristin is 29, she has three kids with football player Jay Cutler and she’s made somewhat of a career out of being a mom with questionable advice for other moms, peppered with product placements. Sometimes she sounds sensible though, like in these quotes where she wonders aloud if she needs Botox before the age of 30. At least she’s consistent in being against injectables for herself and not just her vulnerable kids, right? However if you do criticize her about not vaccinating her kids, she’ll say it’s ok because she’s confident in her choices as a mom. Yep.
On people attacking her ‘parenting style’ (they don’t mention shots specifically)
“It’s hard. At the end of the day, I have to remind myself, especially when it comes to my kids, I’m so confident in what I’m doing as a parent, what Jay and I are doing, and my kids are happy and healthy, and that’s ultimately what matters.
“So someone’s going to judge me who doesn’t know me? It is what it is. I can’t get hung up on that. I know what I’m doing is okay. It’s working for us, and that’s all that matters.”
On if she’ll get Botox
“All my friends are starting to get Botox and I’m kind of like, Ahhh. I want to do everything I can to not get it.”
“I’m so boring when it comes to this stuff – I have my go-to.I always just use the same stuff. The ones that I love are Armani foundation, and Armani lashes to kill.”
It may sound insane that a 29 year-old has friends who are starting on Botox, but this seems to be more common among the monied set on the west coast. I had a friend who lived in San Francisco who got Botox before her wedding at the age of 30. That’s right around when they start. Dermatologists tout it as “preventative” but it’s also more lucrative for them so I would be skeptical. As for Cavallari’s skepticism of science, it’s ok because she’s confident about it and her “kids are happy and healthy.” Emphasis on the last part.
