It has been a tough second season of RHOC for Braunwyn Windham-Burke. She started as an alcoholic and is ending as a lesbian. Many viewers have called her out on social media. Even former co-stars like Vicki Gunvalson have had their say about Burke. But, it is Kelly Dodd who introduced us to Braunwyn, who’s been especially vocal. And she is not stopping now.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke: Fun And Scandalous
During her first season of RHOC, fans were fascinated by Braunwyn. She was a blonde bombshell with a seemingly perfect life. The stay-at-home mother had seven kids and an interesting sex life with husband, Sean. Though the duo had split several years ago, they reconnected and continued procreating. Their youngest daughter is just a toddler. When Braunwyn and Sean needed some time to themselves, they had a sexy condo for secret getaways. Viewers soon learned the two had a penchant for threesomes on special occasions, like big birthdays. Braunwyn made out with former cast member, Tamra Judge on a night out. However, OG, Vicki Gunvalson did not appreciate Braunwyn locking lips on television- with her best friend, nonetheless.
“What I did say [is] I don’t think it’s appropriate for Braunwyn to be making out on TV. I don’t care if it’s with her husband or Tamra or anybody — I just think it’s inappropriate,” Gunvalson said in a 2019 Instagram video. She went onto add: “The truth is the girl bugs me, so pretty much anything that she does would bug me.” Braunwyn kept on being herself and it led her to gain a sophomore season orange. And she had even more to share in Season 15, good and interesting.
Season 15 Braunwyn Windham-Burke: Feuding With Kelly Dodd Over Truth
When Season 15 rolled around, Braunwyn confessed she was an alcoholic. She said she was only sober when she was pregnant which may have been the reason why she was pregnant so much. This was a huge revelation but it also made her mind clearer. Through this process, she realized a bigger truth in her life: Braunwyn is a lesbian. She still loved Sean but it was not sexual. In fact, he had moved out during quarantine and they were living separate lives. While she was celebrating her new truth, Kelly Dodd claimed it was all for show.
During an appearance on WWHL, Dodd had this to say: “I don’t think that she had seven kids so she could ‘not drink’ and I know her well enough that this was a pre-plotted thing that she wanted to do to get her own show. She wanted to get her own show, her talent agent told her to stop drinking. It’s all contrived. I don’t believe that she is a real alcoholic.”
Things got worse for Braunwyn and Sean when it came out that Braunwyn had gotten physical with Sean. She wanted to drink and had hit him. This did not bode well for viewers or cast mates.
Is This Braunwyn or Bad Editing?
It seems like Braunwyn has been living her truth and finding herself. However, on Instagram, she commented she got “the worst edit this year.” But, she went on to say she really does not care. Ms. Dodd had to come back and comment she’s never complained about bad editing. She alluded to Braunwyn “deflecting” and not accepting her own behavior. This actually sounds more like something Kelly has been doing all along. Read the comments from both and draw your own conclusions.
