She’s single without kids. She’s a producer and world traveler (25 countries so far). Her independent nature — and her love of solo travel — is a major part of Gina’s identity … and it’s being challenged by an undiagnosed autoimmune disorder.Gina wrote a book about her pal Rafael appropriately titled, “Blowing Up” (IYKYK).
