The ladies of the Real Housewives of Orange County should regularly pray to whatever reality TV deity has blessed us all with Gina Kirschenheiter. Her life is a hot mess. That is sad for her and her kids, but it makes great TV. Her dumpster fire of an existence also seems to have revitalized the franchise. Or at least I hope it will.
In April of 2018, Gina filed for divorce from her husband, Matt Kirschenheiter, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She then got herself in some legal trouble for drunk driving and talking on the phone while driving. Girl, do you not have Uber? And Bluetooth? Those are both, like, the easiest crimes to avoid. Earlier this summer, Matt was arrested for suspicion of domestic violence against Gina. Gina then filed a restraining order against Matt, which resulted in him being ordered to stay 100 yards away from Gina and the children. He has, however, gained supervised visits with the kids since then.
Gina Kirschenheiter joined the Real Housewives of Orange County in Season 13, and viewers were aware from the jump that there were problems in Gina’s marriage. Her husband, Matt Kirschenheiter, traveled non-stop. And he is also allergic to television cameras. In April of 2018, when Gina filed for divorce and got her own casita, it was hardly a shock.
No one thought much of it when Gina received a traffic violation for not stopping at a stop sign in January of 2018. But then, Gina was arrested for a DUI on February 1, 2019. Gina seemed to take responsibility for her actions. She followed that up on February 6 by getting pulled over by the police once again. This time, the mom of three was using her cell phone while driving. That is not cool, Gina. Safety first!
Vicki Gunvalson who? Real Housewives of Orange County has a new season coming up and the players are ready. Gina Kirschenheiter has been keeping busy in her personal life. She is bringing so much scandal and drama, the OG from the OC might not even be missed. When Gina first appeared on the scene, viewers learned her marriage wasn’t exactly fairy tale material. Husband Matt Kirschenheiter
suspiciously worked in Los Angeles and did not live with his family. After Gina admitted being on RHOC didn’t do her marriage any favors, she filed for divorce in April 2018.
Then the mom of three started running into trouble. On January 3 of this year, she blew through a stop sign and was cited for a traffic violation. No big deal, right? Then Gina was arrested under a DUI suspicion on February 1st. She spoke out about her arrest and made no excuses for her poor decision to drive after drinking. On February 6, Gina was pulled over again because she was on her cell phone while driving. She is now on a first name basis with the local police department. You might think things have settled down for Gina, but you would be wrong. Gina’s DUI arrest has been addressed in court, but her problems are far from over.
Gina Kirschenheiter joined Real Housewives of Orange County for Season 13, and it was clear that there were issues in her marriage to Matt Kirschenheiter. His insane travel commitments left her basically operating as a single parent to their three children. In April of 2018, Gina filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.”
The couple seemed like they may have been in the process of reconciling. Their social media posts certainly hinted that perhaps Gina and Matthew were rekindling their romance.
It seemed like Gina Kirschenheiter and her estranged husband Matt Kirschenheiter were getting back together, but that’s not the case now. Although, you never know what could change from one moment to the next. They seemed pretty cozy, beyond being co-parents, in recent social media posts.
Now, the only place Matt can see Gina is on social media, since she recently filed a restraining order against him.
Buckle your seatbelts, everyone! Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County debuts later this summe…zzzzzzzzzzzz… Okay, just kidding, I’m awake. Can you believe we’ve been watching these women for fourteen years? Once upon a time the original Real Housewives series actually delivered. RHOC covered the women’s lowest of lows: i.e., death, divorce dramas, drinks in the face, a fake cancer scam. It’s also given us some of the most unintentionally funny moments on TV. Think Gretchen Rossi’s singing marriage proposal. The show needs more completely staged organic, real life moments like that. Then there’s Jesus Jugs and the women’s sky tops. We will never unsee those!
RHOC paved the way for women-centered reality shows. Each season post-Brooks Ayers, however, has been awful. Not because he’s gone though. The stories have been stale, overdone, and slow. The reunion of the tres amigas last season still wasn’t enough. For the first time, there were rumors that Bravo was demoted Vicki Gunvalson, OG of the OC, to shake things up. Rumors aside, for the show to continue, we need a revival. Tamra Judge agrees.
Unfortunately, Real Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter has had an eventful 2019 so far, but not in a good way. First of all, Gina was arrested for a driving under the influence and taken to a Santa Ana jail. Also, Gina was stopped again when she was caught using her cell phone while driving. Consequently, that driving infraction cost the Long Island native a whopping $160.
Come on Gina! That is so dangerous! Perhaps you should start car-pooling with Tamra Judge or Emily Simpson if you don’t want to call Uber.
Some lessons need to be learned the hard way. Real Housewives of Orange County member Gina Kirschenheiter is finding this out. Gina was arrested for driving under the influence. This is actually Gina’s second driving-related violation this year. On January 3, she got a ticket for ignoring a stop sign.
As viewers are aware, in April 2018 Gina filed for divorce from her husband, Matt Kirschenheiter. The couple was married for almost eight years and they share two boys. Will her driving incidents factor into custody negotiations?
