Even though Kristin Cavallari found fame on hit shows Laguna Beach and The Hills, the 29-year-old star say’s she’s not quite ready to return to life on the small screen just yet.

“I’m so thankful for the reality shows I did,” says the former TV star. “However, when I did them I wasn’t a mom, I wasn’t married, all I had to look out for was myself. So it’s different.”

Cavallari and husband Jay Cutler could easily have spots on E!’s sports-centric reality series WAGS thanks to his gig as the Chicago Bears’ quarterback, but the mom of two says that she and her 33-year-old hubby not ready to sign on that particular dotted line at this time.

“I care too much about my family to air our dirty laundry and to put everything out there and have everybody constantly judging us,” she says. “I’ll watch it, but I don’t want to be part of it.”

Cavallari adds that being married to a pro athlete isn’t always quite as glamorous or dramatic as viewers might think: “I was literally watching this show going, ‘Come on! This is not what its like,’ ” she says with a laugh. “A lot of these guys have been with their wives since high school or college, they have kids, they’re not dressed up to the nines all the time. [These are] normal and cool people.”
