Keep scrolling to find out what Gina had to say about her beau and to learn exactly what went down between the mom of three and Heather on RHOC.

Gina Kirschenheiter’s Sweet Words for Boyfriend Travis Mullen

Shortly before the episode aired on July 12, Gina took to Instagram to open up about her strong connection with her boyfriend of four years.

“Someone once said a great relationship happens when two people who truly understand each other and love each other for who they are come together and create something stronger than either of them could be on their own,” Gina began the caption of her post, before adding a red heart emoji. 

The California resident encouraged her followers to watch Episode 6 so they could see “why [Travis] has [her] heart forever.” She then addressed her boyfriend directly. 

“Thank you for being the person you are, always. Thank you for being able to walk with me through things I could not walk through alone. Thank you for doing all of the things you always do and never asking for or expecting a thank you,” she continued in her caption. “It’s who you are that makes everyone in your life love, appreciate and respect you and not many people have that kind of currency in the bank.”

Travis responded to Gina’s emotional message in the comments section of the post.

“Love you and our life babe!” he wrote. “Thank you for the kind words and the feeling is mutual!”

Gina Kirschenheiter and Heather Dubrow’s Drama on RHOC

On the show, Gina has been open about how newcomer Jennifer “Jenn” Pedranti’s comments about her past extramarital affair have been “triggering” for her. While the ladies were in Montana for a group trip, Gina even got emotional when remembering her ex-husband’s past infidelity. She then walked away from the women to FaceTime her beau.

But before Gina could say much to Travis, Heather approached her and encouraged her to hang up the call. 

“Listen to me, you shouldn’t be talking to Travis about this,” Heather said. “Because I don’t think it’s fair to him, and I believe that you have some work to do.”

On the following episode, Heather wondered how much longer “he’s gonna put up with that.”

“Don’t say ‘How long he’s gonna put up with that,’ Heather. Put up with what? These are my feelings,” Gina said of Travis. “He’s gonna put up with it?”

In an interview on the episode, Gina noted that she was rethinking her friendship with Heather because of what she said about her relationship.

“I mean, I am surprised and hurt that Heather really hasn’t seemed to have any concern much for me about last night,” Gina explained in a confessional. “It’s very disappointing.”

Travis Mullen's Reaction

On the July 12 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Gina revealed how her boyfriend reacted when he heard about Heather's comments. 

"Travis is such a level-headed, smart, kind man," Gina shared. "And, I mean, he obviously didn't agree with that at all."

Gina noted that she "was not super annoyed" with Heather when she watched the episode back herself. However, Gina was upset when Heather talked to Tamra Judge about a private conversation they had in Montana. 

See what happens next with Gina and Heather's drama by tuning in to RHOC Season 17 on Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
