How Braunwyn Windham-Burke Will Really Feel If Her Husband Dates Other Women

On Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County, Braunwyn Windham-Burke renewed her vows with husband Sean Burke, the father of her seven children. That episode aired in November 2020 but, of course, the season was filmed months ago. Thus, in December 2020, Braunwyn shocked audiences when she came out as a lesbian, declaring, "I'm not attracted to men and I never have been," per GLAAD. Yet, while many viewers likely assumed that Sean and Braunwyn's marriage was effectively done, that was not the case. In fact, Braunwyn seemingly has no intention of divorcing him and they are still living in the same house, but sleeping in separate bedrooms. She even insisted that he is still her "best friend."

Sean reacted to Braunwyn coming out by sharing a very supportive Instagram Story, according to Page Six. He wrote, "I love you. I'm proud of you. And I support you. Always." Even though Braunwyn and Sean have not ended their marriage, Braunwyn revealed that she's dating a woman named Kris. Does that mean Sean is dating someone new, too? Not yet. But Braunwyn is far from enthused about the prospect of her husband dating someone else... even though she is dating someone else herself.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke would be 'heartbroken' if Sean moved on

Braunwyn Windham-Burke addressed fan questions about her relationship status with Sean Burke via Instagram Story in January 2020, per Daily Mail. When one social media user asked, "Will you be ok if Sean ends up falling in love with someone else and decides to try w/ them," Braunwyn admitted, "Nope, I'll be heartbroken." Someone else slammed Braunwyn as a "hypocrite" for dating Kris even though she does not want Sean to date anyone else, which prompted Braunwyn to respond: "That's why we're in therapy. We are working through this. We can't figure this out on our own. This is a lot... This is hard and we're working it out." Braunwyn even described herself as "kind of a jealous" woman.

Adding to the uniqueness of the situation was the fact that Sean was laying beside Braunwyn in bed while Braunwyn answered fans' questions. He said that he would "probably" date someone else at some point, saying he did not "know when though." Sean confessed that he felt "hurt" about Braunwyn getting into a new relationship, divulging, "it kinda sucks 'cause it's hard." And confusing. During that same Q&A session, Braunwyn said that her husband is "a catch."  However, she is not ready to throw that great "catch" back into the dating pool. Sure, there are plenty of fish in the sea, but for now, Braunwyn wants them to stay away from her husband.
