Newbie of The Real Housewives of Orang County, Gina Kirschenheiter, is going through a divorce from her husband, Matt, in the public eye. The RHOC mom is reliving everything as the show airs. Gina filed for divorce back in April, and asked for sole physical custody and joint legal custody of their three children: Nicholas, 5, Sienna, 4, and Luca, 2. Recently Gina opened up to E!, saying. “I actually think the show airing is kind of good for Matt and I because it reiterates that we really are at the core friends and it has helped us be better now.”
Gina has said that she and Matt were always best friends and will always be a family. They are in on another’s lives forever. Gina explained, “Although we don’t have this romantic connection anymore, it doesn’t mean you can’t be family anymore. This idea that you’re divorced and no longer family to me is so backwards and dated and old school and I refuse to subscribe to it and we’re doing the best that we can to keep our family together. It just looks different now.”
Her main focus is on “transitioning” the family. Dating may come down the road, but it’s not on her radar right now. That is something she is looking forward to in the future, though. She shared, “The kids are so little. Who in the hell is going to want to date me? I drive a mini-van. I have all these kids all the time. Do you want to meet me at McDonalds for a happy meal? We can shop at Target. In the future, it’s exciting to think about but right now it’s not a focus.”
Going through a divorce on TV has to be extra hard. It’s good to focus on her children during this time. What a season of the RHOC so far! Stay tuned for more, loves!
