RHOC’s Braunwyn Windham-Burke reveals she is no longer living with her husband … but that things are ‘so good’ between them: ‘We haven’t gotten along this well in a long time’
Real Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn Windham-Burke says she’s longer living with her husband Sean Burke.
The Newport Beach native, 42, made the revelation in a segment with Entertainment Tonight this week as she took the program’s Lauren Zima on a tour of her new residence.
Braunwyn, who shares seven kids with Burke – Jacob, Bella, Rowan, Koa, Hazel and twins Caden and Curra – showed Zima her walk-in closet, which Zima noticed only contained her apparel.

Zima asked Windham-Burke, ‘Is any man living in this home right now?’ to which she replied, ‘No.’
Zima then asked the Bravo personality, ‘Your husband’s not living here right now?’
Windham-Burke, who first exchanged vows with Burke in 2000, and has separated from him in the past, said, ‘No, he’s not. He’s not living here right now.’
She continued: ‘Love him dearly, we haven’t gotten along this well in a long time. We’re redefining what marriage means to us. Not following the old, antiquated rules anymore,’ adding that things between them were ‘so good.’

Zima asked Windham-Burke about her past talk of an open marriage that welcomed ‘hot girls’ into their company.
‘I will say this, there’s no other men in my life,’ Windham-Burke told Zima.
There has been recent chatter that Windham-Burke’s marriage is in crisis, as her daughter Rowan last month raised eyebrows when she wrote ‘F***. You. Mom’ in an Instagram post in late September. She subsequently took to Instagram Stories to acknowledge the ‘challenging circumstances’ of her family life.
She wrote ’45 million Americans will experience mental health issues.
‘This [affects] almost every family, and ours is no different. We will share with you more when the time is right. We kindly ask for your grace and kindness, and thank everyone for their support.’
Telling? Her daughter Rowan captioned an Instagram post, ‘F***. You. Mom.’
After the post, Braunwyn took to Instagram Stories to request privacy amid the family crisis
She subsequently took to Instagram earlier this month with a shot of herself and Burke looking happy vacationing at a resort in Puerto Rico, and on Sunday, posted a shot of herself and Burke dressed up in New York.
Braunwyn appears on the 15th season of the Bravo show with castmates Shannon Storms Beador, Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and newcomer Elizabeth Lyn Vargas.
She hinted to ET about issues with her castmates, as she said that she’s ‘currently not speaking to anyone’ in the cast, adding, ‘I think when you go through a change like this, it’s uncomfortable for people.’
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Wednesdays on Bravo at 9/8c.
