Gina Kirschenheiter claims Matt attacked her

She revealed that her estranged husband Matt Kirschenheiter attacked her and threatened to kill her. She revealed the gruesome details of the assault on part three of The Real Housewives of Orange County season 14 reunion, which aired on Thursday, Dec. 26. She was very emotional as she admitted that the domestic abuse incident was the final straw in their longtime marriage.

The incident happened on June 22, just one month after RHOC stopped filming, as reported via People. During that time, the couple reconciled and decided to give their marriage another try. At the reunion, Kirschenheiter admitted that she wanted Matt back for the sake of their three children. As TV Shows Ace reported, she admitted that she slept with Matt before the incident occurred.

Their marriage was going well until June 22, when the alleged incident happened. She alleged that Matt choked her, dragged her, hit her, and threatened to kill her. Their three children were in the other room sleeping. Matt has since denied the allegations.

“He was just like a different person,” she revealed. “I was really scared. I ran out of the house, and I rang my neighbor’s doorbell, and I was banging on the door. And he dragged me back in the house.”

“A lot of the neighbors heard,” Kirschenheiter said with tears streaming down her face. “They all called the police and then the cops came, they arrested him. It was scary. It was really scary.”

Matt was charged with two felonies for the alleged incident by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. If convicted, he could face up to four years in prison for domestic violence, including another three years for false imprisonment. Since the alleged incident occurred, the Kirschenheiters have been co-parenting as they work out their custody agreement.
