In Orange County, things fall apart so better things can fall together.
Newbie to The Real Housewives of Orange County, Gina Kirschenheiter, has split from her husband Matthew Kirschenheiter during filming this season. She filed for divorce after seven years of marriage. They are seeking joint custody of their three children. On the RHOC, we have seen the ladies go through marriages and divorces. Apparently their busy schedules and too much time apart, is the reason for the divorce. This season we are getting to know newbies Gina, and Emily Simpson. In the OC, the ladies know how to have fun – even when their relationships are stressful and falling apart. They always bounce back in the OC!
According to US Weekly, the couple announced in a statement, “After careful consideration and deep thought, we have decided to end our legal marriage. With that said, we will never end our friendship and will forever remain family.” They added, “We are dedicated to raising our children together in a happy, healthy loving environment. We will be navigating this difficult process with respect and grace for one another. We kindly ask for others to treat us with this same respect and grace at we move through this family adjustment.”
Gina said, “I think I did see it as an opportunity that would be good for us, ’cause we’re buddies, we’re friends, we’re just going to navigate this together. And then when he couldn’t film, and he’s also away a lot, I think that it probably did have more of a negative effect on our relationship and made things harder. Now I’m basically going on this venture, and he’s not included and involved in it, and it creates even more distance than is already there.”
She also added that the relationship had been tough while they were living in Long Island, New York – because he had a long work commute to New York City. They moved to Orange County three years ago.
I hope that Gina finds happiness. Luckily her fellow RHOC co-stars have been in similar situations and can help her through it. It seems that they will able to co-parent their children in a happy, healthy environment – which is great. I’m excited to get to watch the newbies, Gina and Emily, this season! The RHOC ladies are so entertaining. Stay tuned, loves!
