Gina, 35, appeared upbeat in an Instagram story she posted of her time at Walt Whitman Mall in Huntington, New York.
The mother-of-three chopped her hair off shoulder length and dyed it grey. She debuted it while talking about how much she missed the smells of New York malls with her girlfriend.
Gina has been back home in Long Island with her children Nicholas, 7, Sienna, 5 and Luca, 4, since her alleged domestic violence incident with Matthew, 35.
She filed a protective order against him on Monday, June 24, two days after the alleged altercation.
They allegedly got into a blowout fight during which Matt threatened to kill Gina and hit her repeatedly after a night out together.
According to the Orange County courts, Matt is not permitted within 100 yards of Gina or their kids. Documents state that she was granted “legal and physical custody” of their children until a hearing takes place on July 17.
