The Real Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter has been accused by her husband Matt Kirschenheiter of using his domestic violence arrest and their other issues as a storyline for the reality show.
Things between the 35-year-old housewife and her estranged husband Matt are getting messier by the day. Since his domestic violence arrest back in June, things have been going downhill for the Orange County couple, and fast. Most recently, Matt has gone to court, ordering that the couple’s three kids stay off the Bravo reality show for good.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, Matt believes Gina has been using the couple’s neverending marital issues as a storyline on the show, which he believes is damaging to their children. Matt also claims he never had any interest in taking part in the reality show and that Gina actually re-shot scenes to include talks of his arrest.
Matt told the judge his wife’s “choice to continue to pro-actively publicize her allegations, including agreeing to re-shoot to include them on the upcoming season, may be extremely detrimental to the Kirschenheiter’s young children’s emotional health and well-being. These children should be shielded as much as practical from the adult dissolution issues, not actively exposed.”
This isn’t the first time the couple has argued over the well-being of their three young children. According to another article by The Blast, Gina has formally requested an amendment to the current custody agreement she holds with her estranged husband.
After recently learning that Matt will be enrolling in an inpatient/outpatient treatment facility for 30 days, the reality star told the judge she felt it necessary for him to “submit to random expanded urine drug/alcohol testing within 24 hours of” her written request. The Bravo-lebrity also asked for an emergency hearing to handle the matter further.
In their unofficial current custody agreement, Matt is allowed to visit with the children as long as his parents are around to monitor him. However, Gina claims he broke this rule, which led her to beg the judge to grant her petition “to prevent irreparable harm and imminent risk to our children’s health, safety and well-being.”
Gina also presented documents containing past text messages from back in June between her and Matt. In one of his messages, he wrote that he was “remorseful” for what he had done. “I will do ANYTHING to make this right and do what’s best for you and the kids,” Matt texted.
While Gina admitted she considered getting back together with Matt after reading the messages, she ultimately decided it wasn’t best for her and her kids.
Matt also admitted in court documents that he lost his job following his arrest.
New episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
