Gina Kirschenheiter is one of those housewives that really divides fans. Since she was first introduced to us on Real Housewives of Orange County, those watching have either loved her or hated her. Some think she’s boring, some think she brings a fresh vibe to the show. Others don’t think she’s inspirational enough while some argue that she’s easier to relate to than the run of the mill housewife.

Regardless of what you think of Gina, she’s had a rough year and most of it was either caught on camera or addressed on the show. Gina spent her first season on RHOC defending her marriage, all while hiding that it was crumbling behind closed doors. Once she went into the next season and admitted to costar Shannon Beador that ex-husband Matt Kirschenheiter cheated on her and was still with his mistress, I’m not sure if anyone was really shocked. Viewers couldn’t help but notice that Matt wasn’t only absent on camera, but he didn’t even live with his family. Gina blamed this on his job. But none of that really added up. Things only went from bad to worse after it was announced that they were divorcing.

News broke of Matt’s domestic violence allegations and it was all pretty heartbreaking. Gina’s future on the show seemed up in the air and you couldn’t really blame her if she wanted to take some time away from the scrutiny of the public. It was even teased that a big cast shake up was happening (we all know how that turned out) and many assumed Gina wouldn’t make it.

Luckily if you’re a Gina fan, you can expect to see much more of her. In a post on her Instagram account, Gina officially announced that she will be rejoining the cast as she starts filming the next season of RHOC.

Based on the comments, it seems like Gina has a lot of support going into this season. Some fans have commented on how excited they are. Gina has clearly moved on from a lot of the troubles in her life, even dating someone new. She regularly gushes about him on social media and it seems pretty serious.
