Gina Kirschenheiter revealed an alleged text exchange with Real Housewives of Orange County co-star Heather Dubrow following the season 17 premiere, and she shared which cast member she trusts the least.

In the premiere, Heather voiced her disappointment in Gina over her failure to spend time with Heather after the last season wrapped. Behind Heather’s back, Gina seemingly indicated in the episode that she was less enthusiastic about the friendship, which remained strong last season.

On The Viall Files podcast, Gina discussed the text exchange with Heather following the season premiere.

“Heather did — she texted me right after the first episode aired and she was like ‘I’m disappointed in you and your comments that you made’ and I was like hmmm, but I was like, ‘Well, just wait if you are pissed now, we are pretty much not friends anymore,’” she explained, via Heavy.

According to Gina, she asked if Heather “want[ed] to talk about it,” but the actress didn’t reply until “more episode[s] [of RHOC season 17] came out.”

She went on to say, “[Heather] reached back out to me and I think she felt really bad. And you know, she actually, like, apologized.”

Gina said she “care[s] about [Dubrow],” and they’ve decided to stay friends, despite anything that happens on the show.

“I’m like ‘Also if something else comes up that it bothers you, let’s just be open to the idea that, like, we can talk about it, but, like, we can still be friends,’” Gina added.

Eventually, the star was asked which cast member she trusts the least.

Shannon [Beador] the least, 100 percent,” Gina answered. “[Beador has] just never been someone who I could trust, or has, like, been particularly kind to me. It just is what it is.”

In a June interview for Housewives Nightcap, via Heavy, Gina hinted at her issues with Shannon. “I have boundaries, and Shannon crossed some boundaries with me this season and it’s tough,” she said at the time. “I haven’t seen [the whole season yet], so I’m kind of like in this place right where until I see it, and I see some of the things that I think you said or I heard, or whatever, I don’t really 100 percent know how I fully feel.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
