VIDEO: Kristin Cavallari Defends Her Decision to Not Vaccinate Her Kids

Jenny McCarthy's not the only one ignoring science

Kristin Cavallari has gone from dishing on Laguna Beach catfights to… discussing children’s healthcare?

The reality TV star appeared as a guest on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday night to promote her new show, The Fabulist. Of course, host Andy Cohen couldn’t help but ask her about her controversial statement on Fox News last week, when Cavallari admitted that she and husband Jay Cutler had not vaccinated their son.

“There are very scary statistics out there regarding what is in vaccines,” she told Cohen. “We feel like we’re making the best decision for our kids.”

Watch Cavallari explain her take on vaccines in the video above.
