She’s modest — but making millions. The Hills star Kristin Cavallari grew up on the reality television scene … and her net worth totally proves it. The Laguna Beach alum’s total assets are estimated to be a staggering $30 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. But when you add estranged husband Jay Cutler‘s pile of cash to the mix, the former couple comes out with an incredible $60 million together. Now that the once-dynamic duo is getting a complicated divorce, we’re curious about how the 34-year-old has amassed such a fortune on her own. Let’s break it down.
She’s a Reality TV Sensation
This is where the majority of the blonde beauty’s money came from over the years. She got her start during the heyday of the MTV reality series boom, starting in 2004 with the premiere of Laguna Beach. From there, she went on to star in The Hills and Dancing With the Stars. In 2018, she premiered her very own show on E!, Very Cavallari, which is still airing today.
She’s a Host(ess With the Mostest)
Kristin also started hosting red carpets and other events in 2012, when she started working with E! as a commentator. Considering how glamorous the girl is, we’re not surprised she found success in this arena.
She’s an Actress, Too!
The Denver native has appeared in guest spots on several popular scripted TV shows throughout her career, including Veronica Mars and CSI: New York. She also tried her hand at starring roles in film, like her turn in National Lampoon’s Van Wilder: Freshman Year.
She’s a Businesswoman to Boot
Kristin is also an accomplished entrepreneur! The mother of three started her jewelry brand, Uncommon James, in 2017. The company is based in Nashville and has since expanded to home goods as well. As of summer 2019, the brand was accruing $20 million in yearly revenue with a whopping ninety employees. She also has a children’s brand called Little James.
And She’s an Author!
Aside from her business prowess, the starlet is also a New York Times bestselling author. She wrote a cookbook, True Roots, which was published in 2018, and a memoir/self-help book called Balancing in Heels: My Journey to Health, Happiness, and Making it all Work in 2016.
We’re pretty sure she’ll be just fine, no matter what happens with Jay.
