Kristin Cavallari was adamant to "fight" for her career as a designer.
The pretty star found fame thanks to reality TV show Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and its spin-off series The Hills.
Since then she has made a name for herself as a designer, which wasn't easy after starring on the two shows.
"You have to prove yourself a little bit more," she admitted to British magazine OK!
"It was an uphill battle but I was definitely willing to fight it. Being on a reality show can definitely open doors for you, but you have to prove yourself more."
The pretty blonde is also a mother to son Camden with her fiancé Jay Cutler.
Since giving birth in August last year, the 26-year-old has managed to tone up quickly and is looking better than ever.
Her reality show co-star Heidi Montag is well known for having cosmetic surgery, including breast implants and rhinoplasty.
Kristin is adamant she would never go under the knife to improve her image.
"I wouldn't do it. I don't think she needed any work. But if it made her happy, that's all that matters," she commented.
Kristin collaborated with footwear brand Chinese Laundry to produce her shoe line, which includes sky-scraper heels and cute ballet flats.
