‘Real Housewives of Orange County’: Fans call Gina a 'terrible friend' for snapping at Emily when she needed her help
Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson of RHOC fame might not stay friends for long if Gina continues to be a bad friend to Emily.
Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson made their debut in the glamorous world of reality television last year with season 13 of ‘Real Housewives of Orange County’. The new housewives soon hit it off and became best friends. Emily was always a rock to Gina and provided emotional support when Gina needed it. Last season, when we saw Gina struggling with marital issues owing to her soon to be ex-husband Matt’s absence, Emily constantly spent time with her and tried to keep Gina’s spirits high.
Although Gina knew about Matt’s infidelity, she chose to keep it a secret from the ladies and went on defending Matt and singing praises about him. This season, the roles have changed as Gina finally comes clean to the ladies about Matt’s affair and tries to heal from the pain and trauma caused by Matt’s behavior. Emily, on the other hand, is having to deal with her own share of marital issues, with Shane’s absence and snippy behavior. When Emily tried to seek support and comfort from Gina in one of the earlier episodes, Gina’s response to Emily shocked fans. After Emily opened about her marital woes, Gina rudely snaps at Emily with, “You know what, Emily? Your problems seem stupid right now...” and goes on to reveal about Matt’s affair. While we understand that Gina was hurting, her response to Emily’s problems was completely uncalled for and rude. This attitude of Gina rubbed a lot of fans the wrong way.
Gina and Shannon have begun bonding over Gina’s divorce, with Shannon providing the emotional support to Gina. Although fans are skeptical about Shannon’s intentions. In episode six, we saw Shannon gossiping about Gina with Kelly Dodd. Gina went and told Emily that Shannon is her new best friend. Needless to say Emily was hurt and offended, so Gina tried to save face by saying that she was just joking but fans are not buying it.
A fan wrote, “I liked Gina last season, but she's nasty this season. SHAME on her for back-stabbing the only RHOC gal who was her friend from the start! I no longer feel an ounce of sorry for her & the situation she's in with her soon to be ex.” Fans have begun speculating that Gina and Emily’s friendship won’t last long if Gina continues being such a terrible friend to Emily. Gina is constantly triggered by Emily, anything Emily says seems to annoy or offend Gina. A fan pointed, “So Gina all of the sudden gets irritated by everything Emily does just because Shannon threw some attention her way #RHOC”. Several fans have called out Gina for being a bad friend to Emily. A fan wrote, “Gina needs to learn what the word friend means because she’s not it to Emily. #RHOC”. Another fan shared, “Gina’s throwing quite a bit of shade on Emily, the only one who’s been there for her consistently. #RHOC”.
