As Laguna Beach fans well know, Kristin Cavallari did not have a typical high school experience. The former reality TV star, who's now a mother of three, was thrust into the limelight at the young age of 16, and all run-of-the-mill teenage activities—prom, spring break, graduation—were heavily documented with a camera crew and a fleet of producers. "When you're 16, you don't know what's good for you and what's not," Cavallari told us yesterday at Young Living's holiday pop-up shop in downtown New York City. "You probably don't until you're 18 either ... I probably didn't until I was 26."
So, we had to ask: If Cavallari's kids (Camden, 4, Jaxon, 2, and Saylor, 1) were offered a reality TV show, would she let them do it? "Not until they're 18—then they can make their own decisions," she said. "I think it should be a law that you have to be 18 to do a reality show. I want my kids to be kids; I want them to live a normal life. High school is hard enough, let alone having cameras in your face. If they want to pursue a career in entertainment and a reality show happens to be the first thing they do, so be it—as long as they're out of the house and old enough to make their own decisions!"
There you have it, folks.
