“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Gina Kirschenheiter’s salary for season 13 was revealed by her ex-husband Matt as part of her divorce.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Matt Kirschenheiter is battling Gina in his attempt to lower the $10k a month in support he pays. He argues Gina is now the money maker and wants her to pay support for their three kids.
In his documents, Matt claims to be currently unemployed and has no income. He was pulling in close to $43k a month until being let go following his domestic violence arrest.
In the docs, he also reveals Gina’s salary for “Real Housewives of Orange County”. He attached tax documents that show Gina was paid $63,000 by the production company behind “RHOC” and $5,450 from NBC/Universal for a total of $86,450 for season 13.
He believes Gina currently makes $10,000 a month in income from “RHOC” and endorsements/appearances.
A hearing has been scheduled for October 10, where the two will battle it out over the $10,000 a month support checks.
Last year, Gina filed for divorce from Matt following nearly eight years of marriage. She cited irreconcilable differences for the split.
In her petition, she listed the date of marriage as May 15, 2010 and the separation date as March 3, 2018. The two share three minor children and she asked for joint legal and primary physical custody. Gina sought spousal support and wanted Matthew’s right to seek support terminated.
Matthew filed court docs months later demanding the court not grant his estranged wife primary custody and checked the box seeking joint custody. Matthew did agree Gina should be paid spousal support. He did note that he wants all assets he owned before the marriage — including his clothing, jewelry, and personal effects — to be awarded to him, along with his post-separation earnings.
Earlier this month, a judge ordered Matt to pay Gina $10,000 a month in support. Per the deal, Gina has primary custody of the kids and they share legal custody.
They agreed to take one counseling co-parenting class per month together and neither will disparage the other in front of their kids or on “RHOC.”
Both agreed to not introduce another significant other unless it’s serious or talking to the other first.
He has agreed to pay $4,500 per month in child support along with $5,127 a month in spousal support, for a grand total of $9,627. The amount was based on his base salary and gross commissions of $421,000 a year.
Gina will keep all her jewelry, clothes, and keeps the Chrysler Town and Country. Matt will keep his personal belongings plus the 2015 Lexus.
