The Truth About Kristin Cavallari And Stephen Colletti's Relationship

Kristin Cavallari left fans shook after she shared a pic of herself cozying up to ex-boyfriend Stephen Colletti in August 2020. The Laguna Beach star captioned the shot: "2004 or 2020?!"

The Instagram post popped up on fans' feeds mere months after Cavallari announced her split from husband and NFL alum, Jay Cutler, after a 10-year relationship. The couple shared the news of their divorce on Instagram in April 2020, writing, "With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce. We have nothing but love and respect for one another and are deeply grateful for the years shared, memories made, and the children we are so proud of."

They added: "This is just the situation of two people growing apart."

While Cavallari might have been "growing apart" from Cutler, it certainly looks like she's growing closer to Colletti and what a blast from the past it is! Here's everything you need to know about the former Laguna Beach couple.

Are Kristin Cavallari and Stephen Colletti really just friends?

Kristin Cavallari and Stephen Colletti were MTV's 'It couple' for a time thanks to their heavily documented relationship on the show Laguna Beach, which ran from 2004 until 2006, according to TMZ.

These days, Conrad has moved on, marrying William Tell in 2014, per Page Six.

Cavallari and Colletti broke up when the latter got accepted into the University of Southern California and left to pursue his studies, per People. Since then, Colletti's sparked dating rumors with celebs like Nashville star Hayden Panettiere and Baby Daddy star Chelsea Kane, according to Page Six. Meanwhile, Cavallari has three children — Camden, Jaxon, and Saylor — whom she shares with ex Jay Cutler.

But are Cavallari and Colletti getting back together? According to TMZ, they're just friends. However, comments from friends and fans on their cuddly Instagram pic say differently. Jersey Shore star Angelina Larangeira wrote: "Get your man girl @kristencavallari!" Meanwhile, Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi wrote: "Omg I am here for this," followed by fire emojis.

Who knows? Maybe Cavallari and Colletti's budding reunion is just what we need to fix 2020.
