Tamra Judge recently suggested that other Real Housewives cast members could be getting fired but was she referring to her co-star, Gina Kirschenheiter?
As a number of Real Housewives of Orange County cast members continue to fuel rumors regarding their potential returns, fans are wondering what will come of Kirschenheiter, who first joined the Bravo reality series in 2018 for season 13.
According to one particular report shared by The Cheat Sheet, Kirschenheiter has not yet learned of the fate of her reality career.
Last month, an insider told Radar Online that while a number of the women, including Emily Simpson, Kelly Dodd, Shannon Beador, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke, had already been offered contracts for season 15, producers hadn’t yet decided on whether or not they should bring Kirschenheiter back to the show.
“Gina could get something last hour but she wasn’t sent a pickup with the rest of the ladies,” the insider explained, adding that producers of the series don’t want its new episodes “to be boring.”
Following the swirling rumors regarding Kirschenheiter’s role on The Real Housewives of Orange County season 15, the mother of three was approached by a fan who wanted to know if she would be included in the new episodes.
“So are you part of the next season? I along with many friends won’t watch unless you are in!” the fan said.
“[You] will know soon,” Kirschenheiter replied, not mentioning when “soon” would be.
Kirschenheiter had a challenging 2019 after getting arrested for DUI in January and embarking on a messy attempt at reconciliation with ex-husband Matt in the months that followed.
Following her split from Matt in June of last year, Kirschenheiter went on to briefly date a doctor before going public in September with her current boyfriend Travis Mullen. Then, last month, as she reflected on her rocky year, Kirschenheiter confirmed she was in love.
In addition to declaring her love for Mullen publicly, Kirschenheiter has also proved that she and her new man are acting as a family with the three kids she shares with ex Matt and the children he shares with his former partner.
During an interview with Us Weekly magazine last year, Kirschenheiter said that while she would love for Mullen to join her on The Real Housewives of Orange County, she wasn’t planning to force him into anything.
“I’m hopeful that maybe he would film, but I don’t want to put anything on anyone they’re not comfortable doing,” she explained. “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.”
