Kristin Cavallari Isn't Letting Divorce From Jay Cutler Stop Her From Taking Care Of Business

kristin cavallari very cavallari e!

Kristin Cavallari has had a rough few months. After getting stuck on what had been a family vacation in the Bahamas with her three children and husband Jay Cutler when lockdown began across the country, Cavallari finally made it back to Nashville, Tennessee so she could shelter in place like the rest of us. But, by the end of April, she and Cutler announced their divorce, and what at first appeared to be an amicable separation quickly became very publicly heated. Now, though, after weathering some of that turmoil, Cavallari is finally able to get back to work.

The former Very Cavallari star, who quit her show just last week amid the beginning of those tense divorce proceedings with Jay Cutler, took to her Instagram feed to let all of her fans know that, despite the tough time she's had of late, she's back to work at her budding jewelry and fashion empire, Uncommon James. And, Kristin Cavallari looks like she's weathering her personal storm quite well right now. Take a look!

While this lovely picture of a smiling Kristin Cavallari at her Uncommon James office, which has its flagship store in Nashville, is clearly very well curated so that everything on her desk looks perfectly "getting down to business," after hearing about some of the things that may have been going on with Cavallari and Cutler, possibly for a long time, it's just nice to see her look happy. I mean, I'm not entirely convinced that that smile is really reaching her eyes, but sometimes you gotta fake it 'til you make it. And, who wouldn't be happy after sitting in that gorgeous office for a bit and rocking cute butterscotch leather shorts?

The problems with Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler haven't sprung up out of nowhere, as fans of Very Cavallari will know. While Cutler did help out as Cavallari launched her business, he rarely seemed totally invested, and that often came across on camera. Once they announced their divorce, reports began to surface that Cutler was so mean / inconsiderate to Cavallari on the set of the show that he had been known to make her cry in front of the rest of the cast and the crew. We've also heard that the problems with their marriage of seven years really began to show about three years ago.

While Kristin Cavallari hasn't confirmed or denied either of those reports, documents that she's filed with her divorce papers do seem to indicate that there were a lot of problems with the relationship. Both Cutler and Cavallari noted "irreconcilable differences" in their divorce filings, but she added that Cutler was "guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper."

Cavallari also later added that Cutler wouldn't leave the family home, but also wouldn't let their business manager release the funds she would need to get another home for her and their children. On top of that, she noted in additional papers filed that Cutler had been saying "inappropriate" things "to and about" her within earshot of the kids and also trying to start fights with her in front of them. This is likely the reason that Cavallari and her children have been spending quarantine hunkered down with her friend Justin Anderson his fiancé, who were also present for that vacation to the Bahamas.

Hopefully, getting back to work will help Kristin Cavallari add some structure back into her life amid the divorce chaos, and that smile will reach her eyes before much longer.
