During Season 14 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, it became clear that Gina Kirschenheiter wasn't the biggest fan of Braunwyn Windham-Burke. And she didn't try to hold her opinions back either; she instead unleashed her thoughts about the OC newbie at Vicki Gunvalson's birthday tea. But with the season behind them and having spent this past weekend together at BravoCon 2019, has Gina changed her mind about Braunwyn?

During a live recording of The Daily Dish podcast at BravoCon, Gina gave an update on how Braunwyn did taping her first reunion. "I actually thought Braunwyn did great and she usually just annoys the hell out of me. I was proud of her."

"She's growing on me like a fungus, but it's a good fungus," Gina said. "She's my girl. Last night at Watch What Happens Live, it is, it's like's a family. And if you have five sisters, you're going to rank them, and they're not all going to be your favorite. It is what it is; I'm not some of their favorites either."

And Gina has newfound respect for Braunwyn following the reunion: "I think she did really good. I think she held her own; she stuck up for herself; she spoke out when it was appropriate. She looked stunning; she always does, she's always good for that. She is who she is, which at the end of day, I think the show is about showcasing who you are and obviously we're not all going to get along, and our personalities are very different, it's a very polarizing group so it's difficult sometimes, but I think she did great."

We have a little while to go until the RHOC Season 14 reunion, so until then, catch the OC ladies every Tuesday at 9/8c. Preview, below.
