Kristin Cavallari: Snapshot

Name
Kristin Cavallari
Date of Birth
January 05, 1987
Birth Place
Denver, Colo.
If Lauren Conrad is Glinda the Good Witch, then Kristin Cavallari would be the Wicked Witch of the West. Making a surprise entrance on the season 5 finale of The Hills like the devil in a blue dress, the former baddie of Laguna Beach took the reigns as the new face of MTV's ratings darling.

Long before crashing The Hills party, Cavallari was torturing poor Conrad as the junior vixen that broke good boy Stephen Colletti's heart on Laguna. Since then, the blonde baddie – who's dated Brody Jenner and Nick Zano – has tried her hand at hosting (UPN's ill-fated Get This Party Started) and acting (Van Wilder: Freshman Year), but had the most fun giving The Hills a dramatic Hollywood ending.

The quintessential California blonde relocated to Chicago for love, where she cheered on husband and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, with whom she welcomed sons Camden Jack and Jaxon Wyatt.
