Real Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter is still going through a nasty divorce from her estranged ex, Matt, and the experience had her thinking that she would never get married again because “it’s just a piece of paper, it’s just a contract.” However, just weeks into her new relationship with Travis Mullen, Kirschenheiter has changed her tune about tying the knot a second time.
Speaking with Us Weekly, Kirschenheiter said that it was interesting to her because she was “thinking 100 percent, no way” about getting married again because she already has her children, and there was no reason. However, her new relationship has changed her thinking a little bit, and she is “staying open” to the idea of saying “I do” again.

Kirschenheiter started dating Mullen in August, and they went Instagram official earlier this week. She says that he has “nothing to do” with the reality TV world of RHOC, and he “knows nothing about it.”
“We got set up through a friend and I don’t think either of us were expecting to like each other, you know? We just did, and it’s really easy and comfortable,” explained the 35-year-old. “He’s a great person. He’s a really good guy, really sweet, really kind and it’s nothing like I’ve ever really experienced before. I’m just really enjoying being with him and he’s pretty rad, so we’ll see what happens.”
Kirschenheiter says that everything is still new, but they are spending a lot of time together. She admits that feelings have developed quickly because they are able to see each other often, and they have already discovered that they think the same way, have the same perspective, and make each other laugh.
In the pics she posted announcing her new romance, Kirschenheiter and Mullen were laughing together while enjoying some coffee. In the caption, she wrote that you should always find a reason to laugh because even though it may not add years to your life, it will add life to your years.
Kirschenheiter says that Mullen has kids the same age as hers, and everyone gets along. She also revealed that her new man has met her co-stars Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador, but fans shouldn’t expect him to appear on RHOC anytime soon.
She says that she is hopeful that he will film one day, but she doesn’t want to put anything on anyone that makes them uncomfortable.
“This is such a new world to him. So I really only want him to do it if he’s comfortable doing that. We’ll see how that goes,” said Kirschenheiter.
Gina Kirschenheiter and her estranged husband, Matt, are still working out the details of their divorce, and they are due back in court later this month.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County air Tuesday nights on Bravo.
