Kristin Cavallari’s Net Worth Is Huge (No Thanks to 'Laguna Beach,' TBH)
Sooooo, ever wonder exactly how much money Kristin Cavallari has in the bank? Answer: A lot, mostly thanks to years of reality TV stardom and a super successful brand. While the terms of her divorce settlement seemingly threw a slight wrench into things, KCav is basically loaded. Here’s a breakdown of where things stand with her giant pile of money!
Kristin’s Reality TV Legacy Is Iconique
Kristin got started on Laguna Beach when she was just a junior in high school, but actually didn’t get paid much for the show—at least not at first. Speaking on Dear Media’s Back to the Beach With Kristin and Stephen, Kristin said she got about $2,500 for the first season, though she also noted “I honestly would have done it for free. At that point, in high school, to me, it was more of a competition.”
Kristin went on to join The Hills when Lauren Conrad left the show in season 5, and according to the Daily Beast, she took home $90,000 an episode. She was on the show for 22 episodes, so *MATH* tells me she made $1,980,000 total. Um. Amazing. Also, FYI, Kristin popped up as a guest star on The Hills: New Beginnings and Brody Jenner wants her to come back full-time, so stay tuned.
Anyway, Kristin has also starred in a buncha straight-to-DVD movies and a few random TV shows over the years, but she hit it BIG with Very Cavallari on E!, which recently ended after three seasons thanks in part, sources say, to Kristin and Jay’s divorce. Unclear what she made per episode of the show, but it was extremely successful so let’s assume her salary was at least $90K, if not more.
Those Public Appearances Paid Off
Kristin is pretty dedicated to doing appearances and sponsored content, which makes a lot of sense considering she gets paid So. Much. Freakin’. Money. Her Instagram endorsement fee is unknown, but the Daily Beast reported that she earns about $20,000 to $25,000 per public appearance.
Also, not to be awkward, but can we talk about this appearance Kristin did with Jay Cutler when she told a fan not to get married? I lol/cry.
Uncommon James = Kristin’s Biggest Moneymaker
Like literally every other celebrity under the sun, Kristin has her own personal brand called Uncommon James, which sells home goods and jewelry. And it’s been very successful. As of July 2019, the company was bringing in $20 million in revenue—and while Kristin obviously doesn’t get to keep all of that money (she has overhead and taxes, duh), she’s clearly making an impressive profit.
But here’s the thing…Jay claimed he’s entitled to half the brand because it was launched while he and Kristin were still married (even though he didn’t put any money into it, according to Kristin). His views on the matter were actually brought up during a 2018 episode of Very Cavallari, when—as Us Weekly notes—Kristin joked, “He thinks he owns half of this company, and he does not. That is not on our nonexistent prenup.” Meanwhile, Kristin had Jay help out at work in a 2019 episode and said, “Jay already thinks he owns half the company, so by me letting him go in, I’m potentially creating a monster.”
We don’t know the exact terms of their divorce settlement, but Jay recently made it clear he was happy, saying on his podcast “When the settlement came through, I threw a party. I don’t recommend divorce for anybody. I’m just gonna go ahead and say that, but, um, it worked out. It worked out for Kristin. It worked out for me, so it is what it is,”
Got It. So, What’s Kristin Cavallari’s Net Worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kristin has $30 million in the bank. But keep in mind that she dropped $5 million on a new house during her ongoing divorce from Jay, so, uh, let’s call it $25 million. Here’s to hoping she keeps it locked up.
