Real Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter is "freaking out over finances" now that estranged husband Matt Kirschenheiter has lost his corporate job. The businessman was let go from his company in the wake of his domestic violence arrest on June 22. The reality star might have to move back to her home state of New York if she doesn't figure out how to bring in added income, RadarOnline.com reported on Wednesday, July 17.
Gina, 35, got a restraining order against Matt, 35, after their violent altercation. He is currently facing felony domestic abuse charges in Orange County. If the District Attorney decides to press charges he could be facing jail time.
The mother-of-three can't afford to support herself and her children on her RHOC paycheck alone, but if she moves back to New York she risks losing her role on the hit Bravo show.
"Gina is getting the short end of the stick in all of this. She filed the restraining order to protect herself, not to lose her job that she loves," a source told the outlet.
The source continued, "She really doesn’t have any other source of income and it is really expensive to live in Orange County, especially for a single mother like she is."
The blonde beauty has done her best to shield her kids from all the drama but they're aware that things between their parents aren't good.
"She is going through it right now and the kids are caught in the middle. Although they are too young to fully understand what is going on, they do know that mommy and daddy are not together and that they won’t ever be again. This is not what Gina was hoping for when she got the restraining order and it is the last thing that she wants," the insider revealed.
