Gina Kirschenheiter was pulled over again for another moving violation after her shocking DUI arrest, on February 1.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star was stopped by cops on February 6, while driving in Orange County. She was cited for operating her cellphone while driving and will have to pay a $160 fine.
As reported, she was pulled over for a traffic violation around midnight on February 1 and was eventually arrested for DUI.
After her arrest, Kirschenheiter apologized and “embarrassed,” explaining she was coming home from a Moms’ Night Out. “Bad choices have bad consequences. Mine are magnified bc I chose to share my life with you on a very public stage.” She added, “I wasn’t “unlucky” I made a conscious decision to do something epically stupid. One time is one time too many. I am awake now. I can promise this will NEVER BE ME again.”

I honestly believe that some issues no matter how great and important are truly only a part of our awareness once we are personally effected by them. For me….what happened this week is that issue. It’s amazing how in the course of less than a week you can realize the full extent of allowing people into your every day life and how the opinions of everyone watching can run from incredibly chastising to extremely supportive. Bad choices have bad consequences. Mine are magnified bc I chose to share my life with you on a very public stage. Those who are a part of my real life gave me words of encouragement and love knowing the content of my character and the love in my heart. As embarrassed and hard on myself as I’ve been in these past few days, I’ve been shocked by the astonishing amount of “it could have happened to anyone” and “we’ve all been there” that I’ve received through friends both close to me and on social media. I could easily join in with the chorus saying “you’re right, it could be any of us” but it shouldn’t be any of us. EVER ! It’s terrible that this has become a social norm. I am disappointed in myself and that I am a part of this social norm. Especially since everyone who knows me knows I’m the queen of Uber/Lyft. This didn’t happen to me. I wasn’t “unlucky” I made a conscious decision to do something epically stupid. One time is one time too many. I am awake now. I can promise this will NEVER BE ME again. To all of you who wrote me with pain in their hearts about how drinking and driving has had a negative impact on them and their families, I hear you. Thank you. I make this promise to each one of you with your messages in my heart…. I am committed to this cause and hope to effect a positive change and dialogue. You don’t have to believe me with these words, but I hope over time you will see through my actions.
She was also issued a citation back in January for blowing through a stop sign — that ticket carries a $238 fine.
