The recent news of Cavallari and Cutler's divorce has given the impression that he, as a former NFL quarterback, is the talented spouse in the relationship who worked hard while she is -- as Deadspin put it -- is "a talentless harpy" since she's a reality star. "Here are some facts: Cavallari spun an appearance on the throwaway reality show Laguna Beach into a surprisingly lucrative television career," Joan Summers responds in Jezebel, Deadspin's sibling publication. "Where her co-stars, like fellow lead Lauren Conrad, have sunk into mediocrity, Cavallari maintained a consistent presence on E! as an on-air host and reality television star. Very Cavallari, while not riveting to me specifically, is also E!’s most successful non-spin off to launch in recent years. For a talentless hack, it’s rather impressive she drew roughly half the audience of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and their glistening E! empire, in Very Cavallari’s first season. Alongside this, Hollywood is indeed a waste bin, but to maintain a consistent standing amidst all the trash, and frequently rise up out of it, is no small feat. I don’t have to like Cavallari to admit she has kept her foot firmly in the door longer than she should have, and that it is something that requires talent."
