Gina Kirschenheiter's Estranged Husband Matt Was ‘Let Go’ From His Job After Domestic Violence Arrest, Gina Skips Restraining Order Hearing And Matt Allowed Supervised Visits With Kids!

Gina Kirschenheiter’s lawyer was reprimanded by the judge after she skipped her restraining order hearing against her estranged husband, Matthew Kirschenheiter, on Tuesday, July 16. According to Us Weekly, the Real Housewives of Orange County star was a no-show at the hearing.

According to her lawyer, Gina was under the impression that they agreed to continue the date on the protective order issue.  The Bravo reality star is currently in New York with the estranged couple’s three kids: Nicholas, 7, Sienna, 5, and Luca, 4. As for Matthew, he was in the courtroom on Tuesday.

As previously reported, Gina was granted a temporary restraining order against her estranged husband last month after he was arrested on suspicions relating to domestic violence. While Matthew was not officially charged with a crime, the mother-of-three is petitioning for the restraining order to be permanent after alleging that Matthew was abusive on multiple occasions during their nine-year marriage.

“You guys are representing what people are saying but those people aren’t here,” the judge told Gina and Matthew’s lawyers on Tuesday. “This is what I know. I know that the petitioner came in, requested a temporary restraining order based upon what she alleged. She met the proof, which is a very low bar, but she met the proof with respect to past acts of abuse, and a temporary restraining order was issued. Then counsel came in with their own stipulation to amend it and set forth some visitation, which is fine. So you’re back today, but the petitioner is not here. Why is she not here?”

Gina’s attorney, Tracey Lundquist, maintained that she “thought it would just be the attorneys this morning.”

“I will fall on that sword,” Lundquist told the judge, according to Us Weekly.

By the end of the hearing, Gina’s temporary restraining order against Matthew was extended until their August 14 court date. Matthew, for his part, is allowed supervised visits with his two sons and daughter every other week until the next hearing. According to his lawyer, however, the financial planner would prefer to have unsupervised visits.

“There is nothing in her paperwork that indicates professional monitoring for the children is necessary,” lawyer Haylee Rosen told the judge. “My client has never been arrested, let alone convicted of anything. He has no DUIs. I think the mother doesn’t have a driver’s license anymore. He’s a great and devoted father to his children, whether it’s here in California or New York.”

That's not all. Following his arrest on suspicions relating to domestic violence, Matt was let go by his longtime job at investment management firm PIMCO, according to Radar Online.

A company spokesperson who works in the employment verification department told the outlet that Gina's estranged husband Matt was “let go.”

Laura Batty, another spokesperson for PIMCO confirmed the news that Matt is no longer with the company, but could not provide any other details about his departure.

“Matt was recently terminated from PIMCO after the incident with Gina,” an insider told Radar Online. “He is devastated, and does not know how he is going to provide for his family.”
