Kristin Cavallari defends stance on vaccines on 'Watch What Happens Live'

By Gina DiFalco,

Kristin Cavallari appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live following her vaccination comments last week. Host Andy Cohen told her a lot of viewers had questions about it, so she cleared it up as best as she could.

Cavallari, formerly of Laguna Beach and The Hills, 27, addressed comments she made about she and husband Jay Cutler not vaccinating their children. They’re currently expecting their second child.

"How can you knowingly support the spread of potentially deadly diseases by not vaccinating your children?" Cohen asked on behalf of one of the viewers, E! Online reports.

"Well, here's the thing. At the end of the day, I'm just a mom. I'm trying to make the best decision for my kid. There are very scary statistics regarding what is in vaccines and what they cause. Asthma, allergies, ear infections, all kinds of things,” she said.

Cavallari revealed on the Fox Business show The Independents that she and Cutler decided not to vaccinate their son, Camden.

"You know what, I've read too many books about autism," she said at the time. "There is a pediatric group called Homestead or...Home First...They've never vaccinated any of their children, and they've never had one case of autism."
