Gina Kirschenheiter Is Having a Hard Time Making Friends in Orange County How does this group of ladies compare to your friends in Long Island?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

Gina Kirschenheiter: I do not mean this in an insulting way, but I don’t think it’s possible to compare life-long friends to new groups of friends. My friends from home are family. I never question the friendships. Never feel insecure. Never feel like I’m not living up to some expectation. They are my sisters. Did you have fun at the poker party?

GK: I had an amazing time. I’m a mom of three young kids with a dad that’s away at work a lot. I don’t get out much. Being invited to an adult poker night was just was the doctor ordered. Did you know your comments regarding “procedures” was rubbing other people the wrong way?

GK: I honestly wasn’t aware I was being offensive. Other women at the table were talking about their plastic surgery, Botox, etc. so I was just honestly making a joke. I am not anti-surgery or Botox. I’ve had both. It was just a joke. 

Did Emily Simpson's Husband Kick Gina Kirschenheiter Out of Their Home? What happened at the end of the night?

GK: I left at the same time as everyone else. I was the last one to walk out. I was held up at the door saying goodbye to Emily  and her family. They were thanking me, and I was thanking them. It was a great night!! Her husband came out of no where and started yelling at us all. I wasn’t aware there was any situation or struggle upstairs. Of course I would have respected that as I respected her and her party the whole night. I was polite, drank the whiskey that was served, and did not engage in any fighting. I tried my best to have fun at a party and pacify any drama. I’ve never met Shane. He never came down and said hi to me. Emily never told us there was any issue upstairs. Of course I feel bad the kids were kept awake. I’m LOUD!!! I’m self-aware, LOL, but had I known it was an issue upstairs, it would not have been an issue downstairs (or at least not from me). I was raised with manners. That’s why I attended an adult poker party and had a good time! My bad!!
