It was just last fall when Hills star Kristin Cavallari and soon-to-be fiancé, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, first got together. And a few more months after that, they were engaged to be married. And while Kristin was busy excitedly planning and fine-tuning the details of their wedding, Jay abruptly ended things last week, reportedly catching Ms. Cavallari by surprise.
Jay and Kristin were engaged in April—Jay asked for Cavallari's hand while they were vacationing in Mexico, and People reports that the couple was originally planning a spring 2012 wedding to take place just after football season wrapped up. And as of recent, they had been spending a lot of time in Chicago, where, presumably, Cutler has been busy training for the upcoming Bears season. MTV Star Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler Engaged

However, something went wrong, as People says that Jay is the one who called things off unexpectedly. "She got dumped," a source told the magazine. "She's absolutely devastated. She can't believe this is happening."
So it seems that Jay was probably focusing solely on his self and his career while Kristin was orchestrating all their wedding details. Another source for People says: "She was planning her dream wedding, the date was set, the location—everything was set. She's in shock that the dream wedding she was planning is going to end this way."
We know from the Hills that Kristin isn't used to being the one who is dumped, so we hope she's able to learn and grow from this experience. We think it's probably best everyone experience some devastating heartache before getting married anyway—it makes us all a little more compassionate and sympathetic, both of which are key ingredients to any happy union. And it's better that Jay said something now rather than after they were married. But we're certain Kristin's little heart is still pretty battered right now, nonetheless. Just a week ago, she was tweeting about her engagement party: "Thx to all my amazing friends for making my engagement party a blast last night!" And now she's tweeting things like: "Thanks for the support. Love you guys."
This past weekend, Kristin went out for the evening alone and without her engagement ring on to meet up with pals Nicky Hilton and Alessandra Ambrosio for more support.

We're sure a babe like Kristin will have no trouble finding a new man in the future—one who won't renig on an engagement—but for the next few weeks, we'd recommend steering clear of this fearless femme, who has in the past shown a pension for speaking her mind when things don't go her way.
