We’ve known for weeks that Season 17 of The Real Housewives of Orange County was going to feature some busted wigs.
This week’s episode showed us the context.
But before Wednesday night’s RHOC actually aired, Shannon Beador revealed that her whole ensemble was mocking one of Gina Kirschenheiter’s former looks.
Mean-spirited? Yes. Gina pointed out that Shannon was mock When she was a struggling single mom just trying to keep her family afloat.
On Instagram, Shannon Beador posted these side-by-side photos of her over-the-top wig look and an older screenshot of Gina.
“Hope you enjoy my IMMATATION of Gina on tonight’s #RHOC…” she teased in the caption.
If she was making a joke by spelling imitation as “Immatation,” we’re afraid that we’re missing the reference.
These days, Gina has a much more polished look. That is not at all uncommon for Real Housewives.
She has, from when she first joined the show, been conscious of how she is less affluent than most of her castmates.
But there was an extra sting to Shannon’s dig. Gina acknowledged this by reposting Shannon She matched the color with eyeshadow It was scary.
(Bravo)“Remember there is light at the end of the darkness!” Gina encouraged. “You will get there.” True!“And when you do,” she continued, “remember there will always be people that try and bring you back there to remind you of your worst times, your darkest days.”
So Gina counseled folks to “keep it in perspective.”Season 17 of RHOC featured a high volume of flashback scenes, like this one of Gina Kirschenheiter and Heather Dubrow discussing the health of their friendship. (Bravo)
“Usually it’s people who are in more pain than you are,” Gina pointed out.
“I shared my heartache and pain and navigated through all of it,” she added. Gina Kirschenheiter looks casual I’m proud of how far I have come.”
Gina Kirschenheiter looks both casual and fantastic in this 2002 Watch What Happens Live look.
Gina contrasted: “instead of reminding me of my painful past and missteps.”
Gina Kirschenheiter had the correct assessment of Heather Dubrow’s Season 17, Episode 4 conflict on RHOC.
On Wednesday, August 10, 2023, Gina Kirschenheiter posted this lengthy caption to respond to her castmate mocking an older, unflattering look of hers.
Castmate Emily Simpson, who joined when Gina did and thus shares a special bond with her, spoke up in the comments.
Emily Simpson left a comment to praise RHOC castmate Gina Kirschenheiter’s strength.
Perhaps Shannon wasn’t thinking of Gina’s struggles and hardships.
