Kristin Cavallari has come a long way from her hard-partying days on Laguna Beach and The Hills. The former reality star, 27, is now a successful businesswoman, designer, wife to NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, and mother to two young sons.
Cavallari's journey is documented in an upcoming episode of Oprah: Where are They Now?, in which the TV personality is featured alongside Kris Jenner, Kenny G, and Kristi Yamaguchi.
Us Weekly got an exclusive first look at Cavallari's segment of the show. She invites fans into the Chicago home she shares with Cutler, 31, and the couple's children.
She is shown in her gorgeous kitchen, cutting up Brussels sprouts. As Cavallari chops the green veggie for a holiday side dish, her finger with her sparkling diamond engagement ring and coordinating wedding band is on full display.
Lauren Conrad's former foe explained that the activity is a usual part of her day, and that cooking has become a big part of her life.
"I actually started cooking right after I had my first son Camden because he slept all the time," says Cavallari, who welcomed Camden in August 2012 and second son Jaxon in May 2014.
"Jay, my husband, was in the middle of the football season, so I had a lot of alone time," she continued of Cutler, whom she married in June 2013. "I just started cooking cause I had nothing else to do, and I realized that I absolutely love it. I find it to be incredibly therapeutic and I get in a zone. It's a nice break from reality for a while."
Watch Cavallari talk family and food in the video above, and catch the full episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? on Sunday, December 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.
