“We never got an actual script, but they would text us what to say, so that to people around us, it would just look like we were looking at our phones, and then we’d talk about whatever,” says Cavallari, who has three kids — Camden, 3, Jaxon, 20 months, and Saylor, 2 months — with husband Jay Cutler.
