RHOC Recap: Gina Kirschenheiter Thinks Shannon Beador Should Check ‘Into Rehab’ 


After an explosive fight on this week’s episode of RHOC, Gina Kirschenheiter says Shannon Beador should check “into rehab” for her drinking.

On this week’s episode of RHOC, Gina Kirschenheiter suggests that Shannon Beador should seek professional help for her drinking after the two get into an explosive argument.

“Shannon says s–t, and then she wants to pretend that she didn’t do it, and if you can say things that are that f–king hurtful and not even remember you said it, you need to go f–king check yourself into rehab,” Gina said in her confessional interview.

Gina was referring to Shannon’s claim that she didn’t remember spreading the false claim that Gina’s kids were almost sent to Child Protective Services following her arrest for DUI in 2019.

This fight between Shannon and Gina occurred after Shannon told RHOC newbie Jennifer Pedranti that she protected Gina’s kids from being taken away from Child Protective Services in 2019.

“So I will have to tell you, Gina took me aside evidently, um, Jenn told her you brought up CPS at your party? That CPS was coming for her kids?” Tamra Judge told Shannon at a pumpkin carving event.

Shannon immediately denied the claims, shouting: “Jenn, you said that I said CPS was coming for Gina’s kids? What are you talking about? I would never say that!”

However, a flashback scene from a few days prior shows Shannon telling Jennifer just that.

While chatting with Tamra and Jennifer, Shannon alleged that Gina was “about to get arrested” again. If this occurred, Gina’s kids “would’ve gone to Child Protective Service.” To prevent this from happening, Shannon gave Gina a friend’s number who “called the D.A.” and smoothed things over.

“Never said it! God strike me dead, that’s when I know I didn’t say something, OK? So stop stirring s–t up, Jenn. Jesus Christ,” Shannon screamed.

Jennifer insisted Shannon told her this and that she didn’t “know this s–t” about the situation since she wasn’t friends with any of them in 2019.

“Unbelievable! Unbef–kinglievable!” Shannon continued shouting. Tamra claimed that she did “not remember Shannon saying that.”

“Shannon is super sideways about not saying it, which tells me, you totally know you said it,” Jennifer said. Heather Dubrow commented on the drama in her confessional interview, saying, “good try, Shannon.”

In her own confessional interview, Shannon doubled down on her claims that she did “not recall saying it.”

“My friends were there!” Shannon shouted. “I would never say that! You know what I said, Gina? I said, ‘I’m not allowed to talk about anything good that I did for Gina.’ I said, ‘I’m not gonna talk about it.’”

Shannon suggested that Jennifer probably Googled Gina’s DUI case, which the RHOC newbie denied. Jennifer then insisted that Shannon claimed: “There was some attorney that if she didn’t have the number, her kids could have been taken.”

“It is NOT true!” Gina screamed. “Nobody gets a DUI, and then their kids are taken from them! Let’s let this go!”

However, Shannon doubled down that police were “gonna arrest you in the morning” and “they were scheduled to be there.”

“No, they weren’t; they weren’t scheduled,” Gina fired back. “How do you know? Did you clock in with the cops?”

“I have put my children before f–king everything, so to insinuate the authorities would remove my children, that they would see me as an unfit parent, is f–ked up,” a teary-eyed Gina continued in her confessional.

In conclusion, Shannon continued to insist that Jennifer “exaggerated” her comments, adding that she’s now stressed out “knowing people are talking about bulls–t.”

“I wasn’t doing it to hurt you or trash you,” Shannon told Gina before asking, “I’m fine. Are you fine?”

Gina admitted she was still “upset” but noted that she wanted to “stop” fighting.
