The Real Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter has resurfaced in New York with her three kids just days after her husband Matt's alleged attack, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned she isn't planning on returning to southern California for several weeks!
As Radar first reported, the 35-year-old mom needed to visit her family at home in the aftermath of the horrific assault allegations.
On Saturday, June 29, Gina shared a set of photos with a group of girlfriends on the beach in Montauk.
In the caption, she wrote, "Home is a shelter from storms — all sorts of storms.”
And according to a source close to Gina, who filed a restraining order against Matt, 35, on June 24 after the alleged assault, "Gina is just glad that she as as far away from Matt as possible right now."
"Gina is staying in New York with the kids until the hearing, and her parents are flying back with her," the source continued. "She has gotten so much support."
Though she's "staying strong for her children," the insider explained she's still "hurting."
Click through 7 photos of Gina and her three children — Nicholas, Sienna, and Luca — as they get ready to celebrate the 4th of July with their mom and grandparents!
In this photo, posted on July 1, Nicolas, 7, Sienna, 5, and Luca, 4, are smiling big while posing with their reality star mom!
Laughing Through Tears!
Gina is doing everything she can to keep her kids from getting sucked into her drama with Matt, the source insisted. As Radar previously reported, she now plans to file for full custody of all three children.
Gina and her eldest son Nicolas were having fun in the sun. In the caption, she wrote, "Swim time with my little fishy!"
HEALING AT BEACH!
Gina shocked fans when she posted this photo, as her face is hidden from the camera. As Radar reported, the RHOC star claimed to have suffered cuts and bruises over her entire body after allegedly being beaten by Matt.
Gina clearly has a solid support group on the east coast, as can be seen in this photo.
NO LONGER VALID!
Gina posted this photo of Matt and their kids on Father's Day. At the time, they were reconciling.
According to a source close to production, the season 14 trailer for RHOC is dropping soon. However, as Radar reported, they are doing reshoots to include all of Gina's troubles at home in the upcoming season.
