Looks like the Cutlers want to leave Chicago as badly as some Chicagoans want them to leave. When quarterback Jay Cutler's contract with the Bears is up, his reality star wife Kristin Cavallari hopes they will live full time in Nashville.
"Jay hates LA," Cavallari told Elle magazine's website in an article posted this week. "And Chicago's just not home."
Cavallari, who grew up in Barrington, opened up her Nashville-area home, which has six bedrooms, 10 1/2 bathrooms, a movie theater, pool and gazebo, for Elle in anticipation of the spring release of her lifestyle book, "Balancing in Heels."
Cavallari, who has starred in reality shows "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County" and "The Hills," said she has stepped out of the public eye since she moved to Chicago.
"I was a little nervous at first, to be honest, just because I didn't ... it's sort of always been ingrained in me that if you want to be in the entertainment business, you either have to be in LA or New York. And so when I married Jay, I officially moved to Chicago. I was a little scared. I didn't really know exactly what I wanted to do with my career, but everything has sort of fallen into place with the shoes, especially, the jewelry, and now this book," Cavallari said.
Cavallari married Cutler, who played football for Vanderbilt University in Nashville, in 2013 after dating on and off for three years.
"We moved really fast. He told me he loved me after 2 wks & that he wanted 2 marry me aftr 2 months. I knew right away!," Cavallari tweeted in a Q&A with fans Wednesday.
They have two sons, Camden, 2, and Jaxon, 1. The couple announced in May they are expecting a third child.
Cavallari has said she has not vaccinated her children because of autism worries, though she told Elle she doesn't consider herself a spokeswoman for the controversial anti-vaccine stance.
"I wasn't really prepared and that's really the only time I've ever commented on it," said Cavallari, 28. "But it's something that I believe in ... everything that we do, we wholeheartedly believe in. There's no point in talking about it because it's just an uphill battle and the amount of crap you're going to get is just not worth it sometimes."
Cutler, who signed a $126 million contract extension last year through 2020, has only a few quotes in the article, but the writer noted that he wore Nantucket-red pants and a white, V-neck T-shirt his wife approved.
"Nailed it," Cutler said about his outfit.
