Very Cavallari: Kristin Cavallari cries at opening of Chicago store as Jay Cutler provides support

Kristin Cavallari cried during the opening of her new store in Chicago and leaned on husband Jay Cutler for support during the season finale Thursday of Very Cavallari.

Kristin admitted beforehand that she felt it was a defining moment for her jewelry brand to open a second store in Chicago following the success of her first in Nashville.

‘I want this to do well so badly. This is essentially my hometown. I know a lot of people here, and to not have a successful store here would just be a massive embarrassment, and I would kind of feel like a failure,’ Kristin said in a confessional.

The Chicago store exceeded her expectations as Kristin and her publicist Jack Ketsoyan saw it for the first time.

‘Oh, my god. Wow,’ she exclaimed as she started to become emotional.

Kristin in a confessional said the second store had been a longtime dream and later confessed to Jay, 36, during a family-and-friends event at the store that she cried when she first saw it.

The party guests included Jay’s former Chicago Bears teammates Zach Miller and Kyle Long.

Kristin showed them a men’s bracelet that comes with a bottle opener that Jay designed for her Uncommon James line.

She got nervous ahead of a speech and took a minute to regroup.

‘People think, because I’m on TV and I’m putting my life out there, that this stuff should just be very natural and normal for me, but it’s not,’ Kristin said in a confessional.

She worried about getting everyone’s attention, but Jay took the microphone and told everyone, ‘Please quit talking, everyone quit talking.’

Kristin rocked a black crop top and matching leather skirt as she addressed the audience that included her mother Judy.

‘Welcome to the second store that Uncommon James has ever opened here in Chicago. Not only did I live here when I was younger, in Barrington with my mom, but this is where Jay and I fell in love. Also, all three of our kids were born here, so the thought of opening doors here was a no brainer for me,’ Kristin said before ditching her dead microphone.

‘I couldn’t do any of this without your support. So, truly from the bottom of my heart, thank you so, so much,’ she added.

Jay afterward congratulated Kristin and kissed her while saying he was proud of her.

‘You have a multi-million dollar business,’ Jay told her.

‘I know, it’s crazy,’ Kristin said as her eyes began to swell with tears before she hugged Jay.

‘I don’t know why I’m so emotional, it’s just really meaningful to me,’ Kristin said tearfully.

Kristin at the ribbon-cutting ceremony the next day was greeted by a crowd that she called the ‘longest line I’ve ever seen’.

She met people who got in line at 1am and one man who queued up at 4am to save a spot in line for his sister.

‘The fact that all these people came out to see Uncommon James. I don’t even know what to say. I’m truly speechless. It’s the most incredible feeling in the world,’ Kristin told the cameras.
