Gina Kirschenheiter is opening up about Emily Simpson setting her up with, her husband, Shane’s cousin.
As fans saw on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County, Gina was all set to go on her first date with Shane’s cousin. However, her hopes were quickly dashed when he canceled because of a broken toe. Gina later found out that Shane’s cousin had a girlfriend and that Shane and Emily knew that before setting her up. The RHOC star then realized she was set up on a pitty date.
Now, on the RHOC After Show, Gina is opening up about feeling betrayed by Emily over this drama.
“Oh, great,” Gina says when producers suggest talking about her failed date. “It was a big deal to me.”
“My first thought was, ‘A f***kin’ toe?’ Did you break your vagina?” Gina joked. “You literally give birth, you have a human come through your vagina, and they send you home, and they’re like, ‘Now care for this human,’ but you break a toe, and you can’t get in an Uber?! It’s insane to me. Like I don’t accept that excuse.”
This is when Tamra Judge reminds Gina that was more behind the canceled date than just a broken toe.
“But wasn’t there was more to it, though?” Tamra chimes in.
“This is where I get into this weird territory with Emily because I don’t know if I can trust him, you know, and I like to give my friend the benefit of the doubt,” Gina explained. “But he’s like, ‘Emily and Shane told me it was gonna be a fake date.’”
“So he’s just, like, trying to get TV time?” Tamra adds before pointing out that “We don’t do that on the show.”
Gina then says that this is the last thing she needed after the “heavy” year she had. As many RHOC fans already know, Gina spent the last year going through a nasty divorce. To top it off she was also arrested for DUI. She explained that she was “excited” for her date and to have a “fun night” with a “handsome guy.”
As Gina continues to explain why she was heartbroken over the canceled date, Tamra interjects that the whole ordeal was like a knife to the heart and insisted it was a “betrayal.”
“That [betrayal] is worse than what had come before it. That’s when you’re having a bad time,” Gina confessed.
“That was worse than going to jail?” an off-camera producer asked.
“That was worse,” Gina agreed. “That was worse, like, I would’ve done better on eHarmony at this point. They checked more boxes than that.”
“I would have commented more on my uncomfortable, awkward pose like I think I’m the first lady or something,” Gina said. “I don’t know before the spray tan. The legs look good, but they don’t match my face.”
The Long Island native then fired back at another fan who said she is “too trashy for the OC.”
“I’m a firm believer that you should always have a little trash in your class,” Gina declared. “So I actually, I mean, I don’t disagree. I’m from a humble place. I’ll drink wine out of a Solo cup. I’m sorry for you that you’re that proper.”
