Kristin Cavallari Needs A Muzzle

Jay Cutler has certainly had his troubles reading opposing defenses this season. Between the countless sacks -- OK, it's actually at 28 sacks through eight games and counting -- and the myriad of turnovers: four fumbles and seven interceptions. But it turns out his reality "star" girlfriend Kristin Cavallari is even worse at displaying judgement than Cutler is at taking care of the pigskin (or his spongy, concussable brain.) Cavallari, the 23-year-old tart/star of such hits as Laguna Beach, "The Hills" and the direct-to-DVD Green Flash, waltzed into the Magnificent Mile Guess store with Cutler in tow and asked the store manager "if there was any chance she could get anything for free?" Smooth. Real. Smooth. But it gets better! Following the manager's refusal, Cavallari pulled a full "diva" and tossed out the always hilariously volatile, "You don't know who I am? Are you serious?"

Here Kristin, let me be serious. Just because you're from a modestly rich family and are some sort of contemporary quasi-celebrity does not mean you get things for free. If anything you, of all people, should actually pay for things and not ask for handouts. You desperately need to start realizing that, in fact, Chicago is not the set of a reality show and that Chicago does not suffer the nonsense of talentless hacks. Particularly not undernourished, pushy, tone-deaf, talentless hacks whose boyfriend is having a terrible season and whose team will not be in the playoffs. Your money may afford you the opportunity to buy lots of things and even (in this bizarre age) allow you to ask for things for free but you'll never be able to buy nor afford class. Do us all a favor and get a life (and maybe a few wins for your boyfriend.)

H/T thanks to State St. Sports.

But, Chicago is not the set of a reality show, besides Giuliana & Bill. :]

Love you for this!

And it's so true . . .

Hang on, what's the source here Coco Perez? Us Weekly? If it did happen it's pretty crappy but what is she all of 23 years old? No one did anything stupid at 23? In any case I think a fact finding trip down to Guess is required before you go on a Dennis Miller sized rant.

Amanda / November 11, 2010 12:32 PM

@ Vince sure people do lots of stupid things when they're 23. Still I have yet to meet a woman who said she was still throwing tantrums in stores at the age of 23. My daughter is 10 and knows better than that. Even if this story isn't true, you still act like you are condoning this behavior as ok, and that people at 23 should be allowed to act like that. No they're not.

GB should send the homeless to her home and ask for stuff.

rubi / November 11, 2010 3:40 PM

kristin and talk about the situation and comment that is totally false, verify the source, I think they lose trust and dependability

Brian L. / November 11, 2010 4:16 PM

I spoke with the Guess Store on Michigan Avenue and their official policy is to release no comment. I stick with the sourcing and well, I mean, if I'm wrong I'll write an apology.

Vince Jose / November 11, 2010 5:31 PM

@Amanda I'm not sure how you construed saying "it's pretty crappy" and equating it do doing "something stupid" is condoning her alleged tantrum. I'm just saying even if it is true to remember there is an actual person behind the persona.

Brian L. / November 11, 2010 7:48 PM

Public figures are public by their own choice, Vince. The court of public opinion can and shall judge as it deems fit. Opinions are allowed to be expressed. Kristin Cavallari is a priggish and entitled jackass is just as valid as you sizing my piece up as a "Dennis Miller-sized rant."

Amanda / November 12, 2010 1:38 AM

@Vince even if she wasn't a public figure, and was just some girl throwing a fit in a store, I would think she was a horrible person. Brian I think their no comment policy speaks more than if they had actually made one. Unless they're getting sued, then that would be a whole other story,but somehow I doubt that.

Amanda / November 12, 2010 1:39 AM

Maybe someone will ask Jay Cutler about it, and see what he has to say. I'm sure he's heard about it by now.

mare / November 12, 2010 8:03 AM

brian, you're spot-on. entitled princess-fits a la Los Angeles may be fitting in LA, but not here.

great article. i didn't even know who she was until i read this...and I still don't care. :)

J / November 13, 2010 3:42 PM

Actually, it's far better to read these gossip pieces within their entire context. In the actual piece, a witness is named in US Weekly.

Here is a link to the uploaded scan from the actual magazine:

And good on you Brian for actually contacting the store. Like I give a rat's ass if Kristin twitters about how US Weekly tells lies. It's funny that she never addresses which lies those are. Without those tabloids, no one would even know who she is.

Sorry about the previous link, this one is direct:
