Kristin Cavallari’s Show, ‘Very Cavallari’, Hinted at Trouble in Her Marriage

The drama has finally gotten to Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler. The duo has announced they will be divorcing after seven years of marriage, and more than a decade as a couple. While the news was shocking to some fans, it looks like trouble has been brewing for some time, and Cavallari’s hit reality TV show, Very Cavallari has captured plenty of moments that hinted at the couple’s impending divorce.

Cavallari and Cutler announced that they would be parting ways via an Instagram post. In the post, Cavallari noted that the duo has nothing but love for one another, but came to the decision that separating would be in their best interest. Cavallari cited different interests and life paths as the reason for the decision.

While there has been taking of cheating in the recent past, it doesn’t look like that’s the reason the couple is parting ways. In fact, there have been signs that things were not right with Cavallari and Cutler for some time. Cavallari is notoriously open about her life and struggles, and she’s documented the issues within her marriage since the premiere of Very Cavallari.

Jay Cutler’s desire to lay low after years in the NFL may have played a part in the decision

Cutler had a long and controversial career in the NFL. Cutler was picked by the Denver Broncos as the 11th overall pick in the 2006 draft, although he’s best-known for his years as a signal-caller for the Chicago Bears. After 11 seasons, Cutler hung up his helmet for the last time and has been enjoying his retirement ever since. His desire to do as little as possible, now that he’s no longer a member of the NFL, didn’t seem to sit well with his wife.

Cavallari noted, more than once, that she and Cutler had a hard time reconciling their different visions of their post-NFL life. Cutler, seemed to want to hang back, while Cavallari finally saw her opening to head back to work. Ever since Very Cavallari premiered, her star has been on the rise, and that didn’t seem to meld well with Cutler’s vision for his family, although he did seem supportive of her dreams, at least in front of the cameras.

The problems in their marriage, however, may stretch back years. Cavallari once noted that her marriage was difficult and that their relationship tended to be very high or very low. In the most recent season of the show, Cavallari admitted to being at a low point in her marriage, but seemed to be confident things would get better, as they always did before. That clearly wasn’t the case this time, though.

Did Jay Cutler cheat on Kristin Cavallari?

The most recent season of Very Cavallari was marked by a pretty big scandal. Rumors were flying that Cutler had cheated on Cavallari with her friend, Kelly Henderson. Cavallari and Henderson are no longer speaking, but according to E! News, Cavallari never believed her husband had gotten busy with her best friend.

While she didn’t believe the claims, Cavallari noted that she didn’t care for the way Henderson went about dealing with the rumors. She claims that Henderson helped fuel the tales, possibly for publicity.  Henderson is a lifestyle blogger who appeared on Very Cavallari regularly. Perpetually single, Cutler even tried to help Henderson find someone to get serious with, but at last check, Henderson was still single.
