AceShowbiz - Things got even nastier between Gina Kirschenheiter and estranged husband Matthew. "The Real Housewives of Orange County" star alleged in court documents that Matthew choked, hit, dragged and threw her in addition to threatening to kill her, all while their three young kids were home.
In the documents, which were obtained by The Blast, Gina revealed that the argument between her and Matthew began around 2 A.M. when the latter showed up at her house unannounced. Gina, who previously asked for temporary restraining order against Matthew, said that they went out earlier in the evening and had an argument.
She was asleep when Matthew "pounded" on her door before breaking into her Orange County home. Gina alleged that Matthew "immediately became enraged" and "threw me on the couch and threw some of the furniture around." In addition to that, Matthew allegedly threw her down again and screamed in her face that "he was going to f***ing kill me."
Gina continued, "He ripped my bra strap off, then took a pillow and hit me on the side of the head with it hard." She added, "I begged him to stop … to calm down … but he kept hitting me. Eventually he started to hit me on the side of the head with his open hand. When I tried to get up off of the couch, he threw me back down and began choking me. Then he started to hit me all over my body."
Gina said that she ran screaming to the neighbors for help once she managed to break away. However, Matthew was said to be able to catch her. "He grabbed me and dragged me on the pavement back into the house," she claimed. "He threw me back on the couch and started hitting me again, telling me he was going to kill me. His eyes were black and nothing I could say would bring him back to reality."
Matthew was arrested on Saturday, June 22 at her home. According to Gina, Matthew was "still very angry and blamed me for getting him arrested" when she talked to him after he got to jail. Matthew, who works in investment banking, was released the next morning at around 1 A.M. with his bail being set at $0. A court date has not yet been set and he has not yet been charged with a crime.
