Braunwyn Windham-Burke is enjoying her freshman season on Real Housewives of Orange County. She showed up with 7 kids, a mom who lives an “alternative lifestyle”, and a husband with an enchanting necklace collection. Braunwyn has experienced ups and downs in her marriage to Sean Burke. Now that she has signed her family up for reality television, her life is under a microscope. In the past, Braunwyn has admitted being a “big fan” of RHOC, so she knew what she was in for when the cameras started rolling.
Marriage is a big topic in Braunwyn’s life. Aside from Emily Simpson, Braunwyn and Sean have the only holy union currently intact. It wasn’t always that way though. The fact that Braunwyn and her husband have an atypical marriage is no secret. Braunwyn clearly has eyes for the ladies, especially after indulging in a
cry for attention public make-out session with Tamra Judge. Gina Kirschenheiter even suggested there has been infidelity in Braunwyn’s happy home. Now we learn amid the threesomes, the love shack, and whatever Dr. Deb is doing with her hair, Gina was right. Braunwyn gives details on the cheating that rocked her arrangement wedding vows, and who did the stepping out.
Braunwyn’s desire to come off as “different” has been thrown in our faces. We could have figured that out based on her comments, rather than the tongue battle she had with Sister Christian. Braunie is that one girl in college who would get drunk and kiss other females at a bar for attention. We see you, honey. Apparently, Sean is cool with his wife’s extracurricular activities and I hope her kids are too, because it’s out there now. After Gina alleged Sean cheated, Braunwyn is speaking out. There has been infidelity, but according to the Housewife, she is the one that went there.
Braunwyn came clean in an interview on The Real Housewives of Orange County After Show. “Sean and I almost got divorced,” she revealed. She then openly admits to cheating on her husband. “I cheated on Sean. We separated. I took the kids. He was with someone too,” Braunwyn confessed. Apparently, she was over Sean’s busy work schedule. According to Braunwyn, Sean was traveling for his job 25 days a month. I guess the protection amulet Sean wears cannot ward off the evil of adultery.

Braunwyn packed up, grabbed the kids, and hightailed it to Hawaii. If you have to be sad about your crumbling marriage, Hawaii is the place to do it. “We were in two different homes. I went to Hawaii. I took the kids. I enrolled them in school. I told Sean I was done,” Braunwyn shared. After moving to the islands, she attempted to get her groove back by dating another man. “It was very PG,” Braunie said. Probably more PG than what unsuspecting patrons were treated to when she molested Tamra in a restaurant.
“It was like, holding hands on a surfboard kind of thing,” Braunwyn admitted. “It was someone that listened to me. We surfed together. We would go for walks. I wasn’t ready for anything more but it was just nice to have someone listen.”

Braunwyn and the kids stayed in Hawaii for several months until Sean came calling. Instead of lawyering up, he re-proposed to Braunwyn and quit the job that caused their marital riff. She explained, “[Sean] sold his shares and walked away and he became a stay-at-home-dad for 8 years. He said, ‘I would rather choose you guys than my work’.” Did he also choose not getting a paycheck? Regardless, that’s when Braunwyn chose to give the marriage another shot.
Though the couple reunited, Braunwyn said it took years of work to repair their relationship. “We put in the work and we came out better for it. We acknowledged where we were, how we got there, and what we wanted. For us, it was the best thing that ever happened,” she concluded. It’s the best thing ever when you cheat and your husband quits his job, you guys!

Well, at least she’s honest? Braunwyn got the attention she wanted, but I’m not sure it has endeared her to the viewing audience. We don’t know what the future holds for Braunwyn and Sean, but never fear, it doesn’t look like the
thirsty couple keeps anyone in the dark for too long.
