Real Housewives of Orange County newbie Gina Kirschenheiter is currently going through a divorce, and the way she is dealing with the split is driving her co-star Vicki Gunvalson crazy. The OG of the OC — who has gone through two divorces of her own — can’t help but get up into Kirschenheiter’s business, and she is full of judgment and conjecture.
For some reason, Gunvalson has invested herself in Kirschenheiter’s divorce, and she has written on her blog how frustrating it is for her to see her co-star be so “casual” about the end of her marriage. Gunvalson also revealed that she thinks Kirschenheiter is hiding something.
“My personal take on this is, they were probably already separated when we met her, and that is why he decided to move to LA without her,” wrote Gunvalson. “I don’t know if that’s true, but that’s what makes sense to me.”

Of course, divorce is a private matter, and there are a lot of things we don’t know about Kirschenheiter’s split, but Gunvalson likes to pass judgment and stick her nose where it doesn’t belong.
According to Reality Blurb, Gunvalson does say that she regrets some things, and admits that she was too hard on Kirschenheiter when the cast had dinner at her house. She added that she does regret saying things that may have hurt Kirschenheiter’s feelings.
Gunvalson doesn’t actually apologize for her actions, but she does insist that she was only trying to help her co-star when she questioned her morals and life choices. She says it is hard for her not to offer advice since she has gone through it herself and knows how hard this is. Gunvalson doesn’t want Kirschenheiter to make the same mistakes she did.
After two divorces, Gunvalson explained that she knows how difficult it can be for the entire family, and she regrets not making her past marriages work.
Gunvalson is currently in a relationship with Steve Lodge, and she says that she is now in an amazing place and grateful that she is with a “solid, gorgeous, loving, no drama man.” She also revealed that she and Lodge talk openly about their past decisions to get divorced, and they both agree that they should have done things differently in an effort to save their marriages.

She added that divorce is difficult financially and emotionally, plus it is hard on the kids. And now, she is much clearer on what it takes to make marriage work as opposed to ten years ago.
Vicki Gunvalson says that she wishes Gina Kirschenheiter the best, and she will avoid being judgmental in the future. She adds that she will be there for help if needed, and she will not dismiss her co-star’s reasons for her decisions.
