Luckily for Gina Kirschenheiter, her children are too young to watch Real Housewives of Orange County. Thankfully, she’s not doing anything embarrassing. However, her main storyline is her impending divorce. As of recently, Gina admitted that she still hasn’t told her kids about the split.
Even though Gina has her “casita,” the apartment where she lives when Matt Kirschenheiter is with the kids, she feels that they are too young to comprehend the split. Not only that, but they’ve had a somewhat unconventional upbringing so far. Matt already had his own apartment three hours away. Gina and the kids have never been to this apartment.
In an interview with Bravo’s The Daily Dish, the newest Orange County Housewife confessed, “So basically, we haven’t told them.” Even though she has her reasons for keeping quiet, Gina admitted, “But that’s not good, either. We have to tell them. It’s hard. Even though I think we’re doing as good as possible, you don’t want to go to your kids and say, ‘Mommy and Daddy are breaking up,’ so it’s a really hard thing to say. And I think I struggle with that.” Fair enough.
Gina also admitted that she is just “trying to buy time” before the she breaks the divorce news to her kids. She explained, “Luca and Sienna are really little. They don’t really know.”
She is actually most concerned telling her oldest son, which makes sense. Gina shared, “With Nicholas, he’s more aware of what’s going on, but he’s happy and healthy and thriving, so I don’t want to mess with that right now. And I’m just kind of trying to buy time to get him as mature mentally as possible and as old as possible before we have that conversation because I don’t want him to internalize anything, not be able to understand it and then think it has something to do with him. So I’m really worried about that part of it.”
Even though her kids are not officially aware of the divorce, Gina is trying her best to live the single life. In an interview with Bravo’s Personal Space, she revealed, “I did go on one date, and it was nice! It was fun, and then…”
And then? Well, that date did not go well. Or maybe it did. Either way the post-date aftermath did not go as she expected. Gina shared, “he ended up getting back together with his girlfriend.”
At least she found something positive in the experience. Gina explained, “After that, it kind of was just nice to feel like, OK, should I choose to want to date, I can actually get a date, you know?”
Will we see Gina dating next season on Real Housewives of Orange County? Or will she still be in that post-breakup on good terms limbo? Will she even be back for another season?
