Real Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter has been having a rough season so far. Last year she fronted that her divorce with Matt Kirschenheiter was more than amicable, and that they were still best friends. Most people found that hard to believe, and rightly so. If everything was so great, why get a divorce?
This season, Gina finally opened up and admitted all wasn’t as it seemed. The truth was her husband had an affair and left her for the other woman. Needless to say, Gina has let the floodgates open and emotions have been running hot. So it probably wasn’t the best idea for Kelly Dodd to use an unsuspecting Gina to reenact bonking Shannon Beador on the head.
All of this went down on the recent cast trip to Arizona at a meditation retreat. Kelly decided to act like a child and bop Shannon on the head during a mediation exercise. Hypochondriac Shannon had a fit, but all turned out OK.
Kelly did not admit any wrongdoing. To prove her innocence in this self-created fiasco, she bopped Gina on the head without her permission to show she didn’t hit Shannon that hard. Wrong move, Kelly!
In an interview with People, Gina discussed the incident and what was on her mind when Kelly did that to her. Gina said, “I mean, that was rough for me. It was a tough moment for me. I saw red, I’m not gonna lie… it took a lot of strength for me to walk away. That’s all I’m gonna say. That was tough.”
I think walking away was the right thing to do. It’s either that or fight back verbally or physically, and we all know neither would go over well.

Gina continued, “But I knew, I was like, I gotta get out of this room. I have to get out of this situation, nothing good is going to come from this. But I felt violated. And I couldn’t believe it. That she had crossed this line already with someone else and then she’s just going to go and do it again, how disrespectful.”
No kidding. Yes, Kelly can be entertaining because she’s cray. But what she did to Gina was petty and mean. Gina might not like being called “the little sister” by Braunwyn Windham-Burke, but that’s exactly how Kelly treated her in that moment.
And speaking of in the moment, Gina joked, “You know, but in that moment…I was like, I just can’t go back to jail! I can’t go back to jail!” Well, at least she can look back and laugh at it now.
Gina was then asked if she thought Kelly was “completely out of control.” She replied, “Yeah, she was completely out of control, completely out of line.” Luckily, the debacle was resolved shortly afterwards when Kelly apologized to Gina. Glad to see the two are civil to each other, at least for now.
