Gina Kirschenheiter: It Was a Bad Display of Behavior by Everyone Involved

"I think Shane could have just walked away when Steve did. Kelly could have never walked over there in the first place."

Gina Kirschenheiter Finally Comes Face to Face With Emily Simpson's Husband Do you think Vicki got a better sense of your life after having dinner with your kids?

How to Watch

Watch RHOC on Bravo on Wednesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Gina Kirschenheiter: I definitely think Vicki got a better sense of my life after having dinner with us. And it also allowed me to get to know her better too. I can totally tell she is an amazing grandma. She came right in and was totally comfortable with my kids. She was super interactive with them and sweet and warm. I was disappointed with Nicholas for acting, up but Vicki was super understanding and supportive. I felt much more connected to Vicki after I disciplined Nick and she told me that I did a good job. For me, it’s always nice to hear you are doing a good job from a veteran mom. How was it to finally meet Shane?

GK: I was anxious about meeting Shane for the first time. Our first encounter was obviously less than pleasant. Being who I am I decided to break the ice and ease the tension by keeping it light and making a joke about the situation. I find comfort with humor in uncomfortable situations. It didn’t go quite as I planned. I was taken aback when I tried to laugh it off and give him a hug and he told me I should calm down dryly. It was disappointing to me. I felt like it was a clear message that he wasn’t into being all haha about it, and so I avoided him the rest of the night. What made you open up to Emily about what was happening in your marriage?

GK: I didn’t go to the party with the intention to open up to anyone. Emily actually saw it on my face and pulled me aside. I felt comfortable with her at that point. When a friend is in tune with you to the point where they can sense you are off, it makes you feel secure enough to open up. I just really needed a hug in this moment. She knew that, and that’s what she did. What is your take on the drama that happened at the party?

GK: It’s interesting to see it all unfold. I didn’t really understand what was going on until it was at the height of it. I think it’s obvious that Kelly didn’t know Shane was Emily’s husband. But regardless, he was a guest in Tamra’s home. I think Shane could have just walked away when Steve did. Kelly could have never walked over there in the first place. It was a bad display of behavior by everyone involved. I was shocked that it reached the level that it did. It was unfortunate.
