The Hills alum admitted that their breakup was "such a roller coaster but … probably the best decision I’ve ever made."
Cavallari told Bristowe that there were moments where she doubted if calling it quits was the right decision. "Jay [and] I actually went on a couple of dates like months and months and months ago […] but then I was like … it’s not there for me anymore," she explained.
"The thing with Jay is, we aren’t getting our divorce because of love lost, right, which made it really challenging because we were crazy about each other," she continued.
"And so I just decided I didn’t want to be in a toxic relationship anymore and I had to break it off. But that’s made it hard and made me sit here and question it for a few months. But then going back and dating him a little bit made me reaffirm it like, 'No, I know that I’m doing the right decision,'" the blonde beauty added.
Cavallari and Cutler share children, Camden, Jaxon and Saylor.
