Real Housewives Of Orange County Braunwyn Windham-Burke wedding dress

Since Lynn Curtin’s daughter was served eviction papers on season three of Real Housewives of Orange County, who even owns their home on these shows has been a topic of conversation. On RHOC particularly, these women seem to exist on one of two extremes – they’re like Heather Dubrow and Shannon Beador (circa her first season) and have homes that could be described as compounds. Then there are the Lydia McLaughlin’s who rent.

This season is no different. Newbie, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas has a huge beach-front mansion that gives Shannon pangs of jealousy and nostalgia for days past. Then there’s the ridiculous feud about who called Gina Kirschenheiter’s townhome “sad.” Braunwyn Windham-Burke has admitted she wanted to hurt Gina with that comment. Now she’s clarifying why she doesn’t actually own the new McMansion she’s been filming in.

As reported by Bravo’s The Daily Dish, Braunwyn took to her Instagram stories to share that, “it’s actually not that complicated. I was in my old home and we found out we weren’t allowed to film there anymore ’cause we have to get permits and permission and all this stuff to film in our homes and I couldn’t.”

Braunwyn continued to explain to followers that, “we didn’t have long, we had a few weeks [to find a house to film in] and this house was available and we’re like, ‘OK, we’ll take it.” She also added, jokingly, “you can’t be on the show if you don’t have a house. It’s called the Housewives.”

Braunwyn and her family (well, minus Sean Burke) are happy here. “It’s a great place,” she said. “I love it. It works for us now,” and “we’ll see what happens.”

It makes sense that she can’t get the permits to film in a gated community. Most people live there for privacy, but privacy isn’t the goal for any of these women.
