After splitting in April after seven years of marriage Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari spent the Thanksgiving holiday apart despite sharing three kids together.
The former NFL player, 37, rang in the holiday with good pals Carrie Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher deep frying a turkey and playing Uno, whereas Kristin, 33, spent it with good pal Justin Anderson where they did a wine-fueled Q+A on social media.
The estranged couple seemed to march to the tune of their own drum on Turkey day as they celebrated with close friends at respective homes in Tennessee.

Cutler was quick to show off their deep fried bird as he gushed over Underwood’s expansive spread of food on social media.
‘We had it all. And when I say we, I mean Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher. I watched a large turkey cook in a vat of oil. Carrie and Mike had enough for 20 people. Hope everyone had a great Turkey day,’ he wrote.
The spread included stuffing, mac n cheese, loads of vegetables, cranberry sauce and desserts as the pals leaned into a southern style turkey that was crisp brown.
