RHOC star Gina Kirschenheiter is opening up about her divorce from her husband Matt. She explains what it has been like to go through a split in front of the public.
“I actually think the show airing is kind of good for Matt and I because it reiterates that we really are at the core friends and it has helped us be better now,” Gina said in a new interview.
Gina insists that even though the couple’s romantic spark is gone, she and Matt will always be friends and a family.
“Although we don’t have this romantic connection anymore, it doesn’t mean you can’t be family anymore,” she explained to E!. “This idea that you’re divorced and no longer family to me is so backwards and dated and old school and I refuse to subscribe to it and we’re doing the best that we can to keep our family together. It just looks different now.”
“I’m focused on still transitioning my family,” she shared. “The kids are so little. Who in the hell is going to want to date me? I drive a mini-van. I have all these kids all the time. Do you want to meet me at McDonalds for a happy meal? We can shop at Target. In the future, it’s exciting to think about but right now it’s not a focus.”
Gina and Matt recently decided to take their family home off the market.
“We were gonna sell the house and I was like, ‘I just don’t want to be a homeowner,’ because that’s so hard, if my dishwasher breaks like it did the other day, whatever — but it’s not a great time so we’re actually taking it off the market and we’re just going keep doing what we’re doing,” she said on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
Gina filed for divorce in April, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for sole physical custody and joint legal custody of their three children, Nicholas, 5, Sienna, 4, and Luca, 2.
