Pregnancy brain behavior?

Sometimes pregnancy makes you do crazy things. At least, that is what we’re blaming Kristin Cavallari’s recent anti-vaccine comments on. The former “The Hills” star made some very controversial comments recently about how she refused to vaccinate her son Camden, fearing that the shots would trigger Autism. While appearing on “The Independents” on Fox Business, K-Cav said:

“You know what, I’ve read too many books about autism,”

Cavallari, 27, began.

“There is a pediatric group called Homestead or, shoot, Homestead or Home First — now I have pregnancy brain, I got them confused — but they’ve never vaccinated any of their children and they’ve never had one case of autism. And now, one in 88 boys is autistic, which is a really scary statistic…vaccinations have changed over the years. There’s more mercury and other [stuff]…”  Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Trying to explain

As you can imagine, the backlash to Kristin’s comments was swift, and it was not pretty. The actress caused a social media firestorm! She went on the show “Fox and Friends”, the very next day, and she had a chance to address her issues yet again. When asked about the backlash to her recent comments, Kristin didn’t hold back.

“It is a harsh response. You know, it’s not something that I publicly wanted to come out and say. I was in an interview and it came up, and it wasn’t what I was expecting.”

She continued:

“But, you know, listen, to each their own. I understand both sides of it. I’ve read too many books about autism and there’s some scary statistics out there. It’s our personal choice, you know, and if you’re really concerned about your kid, then get them vaccinated and it shouldn’t be a problem.”

Once and for all

You might think that would have been the end of it, but after all of that, Kristin was still forced to talk about her comments again, a few days later when she appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen. She even had to answer a viewer’s question sent in through social media!

“We got a lot of questions, Kristin, about your stand on vaccines,”

host Andy Cohen told her.

“Kat George wants to know, ‘How can you knowingly support the spread of potentially deadly diseases by not vaccinating your children?’

Kristin was quick to reply.

“Here’s the thing: At the end of the day, I’m just a mom. I’m trying to make the best decision for my kid. There are very scary statistics out there regarding what is in vaccines and what they cause — asthma, allergies, ear infections, all kinds of things. And we feel like we’re making the best decision for our kids.”
