In a Thursday interview on Fox Business channel, former reality "star" Kristin Cavallari admitted that she and her husband, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, do not believe in vaccinating their children due to autism fears.

The former Laguna Beach star surprised host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery when she revealed she had chosen not to vaccinate her son because of a statistic she read sometime, somewhere:

There is a pediatric group called Homestead, or shoot, Homestead or Home First, now I'm pregnancy brain I gotta confuse them, 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.

On Fox & Friends Friday morning, Cavallari continued to defend her anti-vac position, but admitted her harmful decision was an accidental disclosure and was not something she "wanted to publicly come out and say."

But now being forced to defend her choice, the pregnant Cavallari cited "books" as her rationale:

"Listen, to each their own," she said. "I understand both sides of it. I've ready too many books about autism and there's some scary statistics out there. It's our personal choice, and, you know, if you're really concerned about your kid get them vaccinated."

The scariest statistic of them all? Thanks to idiots like Cavallari and Cutler, there's currently an outbreak of measles in New York City.
