The Real Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter is opening up about why she tried to work things out with her ex, Matt Kirschenheiter, despite his affair, as a new report is sharing a new update regarding the former couple’s child support battle.
As fans can remember, earlier this season, Gina revealed to the cast that her estranged husband Matt had been cheating on her with another woman and was now shacking up with her. And while the mother-of-three appeared incredibly hurt by the whole situation, she’s now revealing what was really going through her mind as Matt attempted to get her back.
“It’s a double-edge sword because on one hand, now maybe we can have my family back, like, repair this whole thing, but it’s also like, I literally, for the first time, made a very big movement to move on,” the Orange County housewife said on Bravo’s RHOC After Show regarding her ex-husband trying to get back in her good graces. “And it was like, do I want to move backwards?”
Longtime Orange County housewife Tamra Judge, who was sitting beside Gina during the interview, then nodded and said, “I warned you,” alluding to the fact that Gina took him back at one point. But unfortunately, that reconciliation was short-lived as it ended following Matt’s arrest in June on the suspicion of domestic violence against Gina.
The camera then cut back to Gina, who went on to explain that after going through therapy, she made peace with the fact that getting back together with Matt ultimately just wasn’t the right thing to do for her kids and her family.
In more Gina news, The Blast is reporting that Gina will face Matt in court on January 15, 2020, regarding their ongoing battle over child support and spousal support.
If you recall, Matt, who was earning $421,000 annually, was ordered to pay Gina a total of $9,627 in support each month ($4,500 for child support plus $5,127 for spousal support). However, following his arrest for alleged domestic violence, Matt lost his job and then took Gina back to court. He said he wanted her to pay him child support since he could no longer afford the ordered amount due to being out of a job.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County air every Tuesday at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
