Gina Kirschenheiter is breaking her silence.

“I’m happy that I didn’t address this so far. I know I have to address it, right? I feel like this is a safe space.

I’m not going to kick someone when they’re down, you know what I mean?” she said.

“I’ve been down. I know where she’s at right now. It’s not a good place to be, mentally, emotionally…you do have this platform and this celebrity, and you make a really bad decision, and you think ‘well, that’s it for me,’” she continued.

“The first instinct is thank God, obviously, she didn’t hurt herself seriously or injure anyone else. It’s obviously the worst mistake you can make…so I’m just glad everybody’s okay. But it sucks, it’s hard. I feel bad for her. There’s part of me – I’m not going to lie to everybody and say I didn’t wake up and think ‘oh sh-t, this is like a karma.’ But very quickly, I moved past that. Then I got angry about a lot of it for a minute. And now I really have settled into appropriate sympathy for the situation, and for her. I don’t want to see anybody down. I never have.”
