Kristin Cavallari's Bikini Throwback

We're feeling "Laguna Beach" mania all over again.

New mom Kristin Cavallari shared photos from her April 2006 Blender magazine interview in honor of Throwback Thursday.

The reality TV star posed in a skimpy bikini and California duds for the shoot seven years ago. Some gems from the stimulating interview:

About the downside to being hot: "Since so many people know who I am and know my business, I can't get away with things I'd normally be able to. And I'm not 21, so going out can be a big issue. Then again, being hot can actually help with that problem, so it is good and bad."

On her fallback plan after losing her hotness: "I hope that I'll be hot for a long time so I can make a lot of money and I can retire early and just travel. So, hopefully that will happen."

So far, so good on the making a lot of money part!
